Good morning and welcome to the second quarter 2010 American Physicians Service Group Earnings Conference Call. My name is Andrea and I’ll be your coordinator today.

I’d like to reminder to you that during this call, members of AMPH’s management may make forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and beliefs and are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. For example, statements regarding potential developments in the industries in which the Company operates, it’s ability to expand in existing markets and enter into new markets, or grow through acquisitions and to achieve positive operating results are all forward-looking statements.

Now I’d like turn to the call over to Ken Shifrin, Chairman and CEO of AMPH.

Ken Shifrin

Thank you and welcome everyone. Also joining me today are Tim LaFrey, our President and Marc Zimmermann, our Chief Financial Officer. We are pleased to announce another successful quarter in which our net income and earnings per share exceeded the estimates of our outside equity analyst. Our core insurance operations again performed very well during the quarter. Our strong underwriting and claims management continues to be reflected in our favorable loss experience. As a result, we recorded favorable development of $8.8 million in the quarter.
