Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Zumiez Incorporated fiscal 2012 second quarter earnings call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will conduct a question-and-answer session towards the end of today’s conference.

Before we begin, I would like to remind everyone of the company's Safe Harbor language. Today's conference call includes comments concerning Zumiez Inc.'s business outlook and contains forward-looking statements. These particular forward-looking statements and all other statements that may be made on this call are not based on historical facts, are subject to risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially. Additional information concerning a number of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially than the information that will be discussed is available in Zumiez's filings with the SEC.

And now, I would like to turn the call over to Mr. Rick Brooks, Zumiez Chief Financial Officer.

Rick Brooks

Thank you and welcome everyone. I'd like to start the call by introducing our new CFO, Chris Work. As you've likely seen from our press release last week, Chris has been with Zumiez for about five years, and as a result, has had the time to fully embrace the Zumiez's culture. Chris has been a key contributor to our financial operations and more recently played a major leadership role in the Blue Tomato acquisition.
