Good morning everyone and thank you for joining us today. As is usually the case, you will be hearing from Colm and Gary on today’s call. So I will keep my comments rather brief. But I’ll be happy to answer any questions at the end of the prepared remarks.

I’d like to start off today with some high level comments on the supply and demand dynamics currently in place in the commercial aircraft leasing business. Given the current economic stability in Europe. And slowing growth in China, demand for leased aircraft has performed and continues to perform better than one might have expected.
