Greetings, and welcome to the Pep Boys Manny Moe & Jack second quarter 2012 earnings conference call. [Operator instructions.] It is now my pleasure to introduce your host, Sanjay Sood, vice president, chief accounting officer, and controller. Thank you Mr. Sood. You may now begin.
Good morning, and thank you for participating in Pep Boys’ second quarter earnings conference call. On the call with me today are Mike Odell, president and chief executive officer, and Scott Webb, executive vice president, merchandising, supply chain, and digital operations.
The format of the call is similar to our previous calls. First, Mike will provide opening comments regarding our results and our strategic priorities, then I will review the financial performance, balance sheet, and cash flows for the second quarter. We’ll then turn the call over to the operator to moderate a question and answer session and the call will end promptly at 9:30 a.m. this morning.
