Thank you very much. Glad to be back. And good morning everyone, I appreciate your interest in Parker Drilling Company. Today with me I have Kirk Brassfield, our CFO; and also Rich Bajenski, down here our Director of IR, and then somewhere in the back of the room, back there Marc White, who runs our Rental Tool Division. And I’m glad to have all of you here for the presentation.
I’ll also comment to that our written quotation is available in the back of the room, and I will not be following that today, so take it with you to catch up with other segments of our company that I will not be covering.
