Good afternoon. My name is Kimberly, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Wright Express Conference Call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers’ remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions)
Thank you. I would now like to turn the call over to CFO, Steve Elder. Please go ahead, sir.
