Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. and Alliance Holdings GP second quarter 2010 earnings conference call. (Operator Instructions) I would now like to turn the conference over to your host for today, Mr. Brian Cantrell, Senior Vice President and CFO. Brian Cantrell We appreciate your interest in Alliance Resource Partners, which we refer to as ARLP; and Alliance Holdings GP, which we refer to as AHGP. We released our 2010 second quarter earnings earlier this morning and will now discuss these results as well as our outlook for the remainder of 2010. Following our prepared remarks, we will open the call to your questions. Before we begin, however, let me start with a few reminders. First, since AHGP's only assets are its ownership interest in ARLP, our comments today are directed to ARLP's results and outlook unless otherwise noted. In addition, please be aware that some of our remarks may include statements, which are not historical in nature and may concern future expectations, plans and objectives of the partnerships regarding their future operations. Such comments constitute forward-looking statements made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are based on the beliefs of the partnerships and those of their respective general partners and management as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to them. Although the Alliance partnerships, their general partners and management, believe these forward-looking statements to be reasonable at the time, no assurances can be given that such statements will prove to be correct.
