I will begin with the customary Safe Harbor Statement that this conference call may include statements regarding anticipated and future developments that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are those that described future outcomes or expectations that are usually identified by words such as should, could, plan, contain, expect, continue, forecast, belief and anticipate and include for example any statement made regarding the company’s guidance for 2010. Actual results may differ materially as a result of inherent uncertainties and risks including the risk factors described in the company’s Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and in the company’s earnings release. The company may not be able to predict and may have little or no control over the factors or events that may influence the financial results.
