Our agenda today, again is aligned without seeing, but demonstrating and delivering value and we are going to show you a lot of information about the company. After my remarks, Scott is going to come up and talk about the good work that we’ve done in the capital side and what lies ahead. Bob’s and then come up and give you a very good overview and in detail on our portfolio; and we are going to have a short break; and then we are going to come back into a deeper dive in terms of the regional overviews between our Central, our Easter and our Western Regions; and we are going to talk about the top opportunities and challenges.

We are going to go through our top 10 large vacancies in our strategic portfolio and discuss them; and then, we are going to go through and talk about our investment strategy, our acquisition and development strategy, Jojo is going to talk us through that. And then, I’m going to circle back to discuss the FR opportunity, and then, we will open up for questions-and-answers.

The title of this section is reflective of the work we have done and the opportunities that we see ahead. Over the last few years, we have really strengthened our foundation; especially, our capital base and our operations and we are now positioned to capitalize on opportunities both with in our portfolio, as well as new investments.

When we look at First Industrial, we think we have two value propositions. The first is leasing up the portfolio, as we’re still only the 86.6% leased. As we could get this portfolio at 92%, but we’re saying here today, our goal is to get to 92% leased in the portfolio by the end of 2013. We pick up $0.20 a share in FFO, we did it today, tomorrow we leased it up, we pick up $0.20 in FFO, which is significant given our run rate FFO.
