Thank you. Good morning, everyone, and thanks for joining us today. Steve Rolls is in the room but due to strange vocal cords he is trying to avoid speaking, so I’ll read his prepared remarks. I want to take a moment to read the Safe Harbor statement before I go over the financial results of our fourth quarter and full year. Ralph Scozzafava, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer will then follow with a discussion of the highlights of the quarter and year.
