Good morning ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the 2011 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Conference Call. At this time, all participants have been placed on a listen-only mode and we will open up the floor for your questions and comments after the presentation.

It is now pleasure to turn the floor over to your host David Hannah. Sir, the floor is yours.

David Hannah

Thank you. Good morning everyone. As you can probably tell I’ve got a bit of bug here, so I’m going to try to get through this without sniffing and snorting too much. Thanks again for joining our conference call for the fourth quarter and our year-ended December 31, 2011. Gregg Mollins, our President and Chief Operating Officer; and Karla Lewis, our Executive VP and CFO, are also here with me today.

After the completion of this conference call a printed transcript including Regulation G reconciliations will be posted on our website at in the Investor Information section. And this conference call may contain forward-looking statements relating to future financial results.
