Good morning everybody. It seems I have a piano accompanying us here this morning. I am Steve Marcus, Chairman of the Marcus Corporation and I’d like to welcome you all to our 2011 Annual Shareholders’ Meeting. Welcome also to our shareholders who are listening to the live webcast of today’s meeting on the Internet. I’d like to begin the meeting by introducing our Executive Management team. They are Greg Marcus, President and Chief Executive Officer. Serving with Greg on our Executive Committee are Tom Kissinger, Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary; Bruce Olson, Senior Vice President of the Marcus Corporation and President of Marcus Theatres; Bill Otto, President of Marcus Hotels and Resorts; Doug Neis, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer; and Jane Durment, Chief Information Officer. Karen Spindler who is our Director of Corporate Human Resources is out of town on business today and as a result could not be with us. I would also like to introduce the newest member of our Executive Committee, Bill Reynolds, Senior Managing Director of our new hotel investment business. Bill? As you will hear later, our outstanding management team has done an excellent job of guiding us through the challenges and the opportunities of the past year while at the same time positioning us for the future. That now brings us to the business portions of the meeting. All shareholders present should have submitted their proxies prior to entering the meeting. If there are any shareholders present who have not yet voted or who have previously submitted a proxy and not want to revoke the proxy, please go to the registration desk where you may either vote and/or revoke your proxy.
