Good afternoon. My name is Dave Lewis. I work on the information services team here at JPMorgan. It’s my pleasure to introduce the Gartner team. To my far right is Craig Safian and to my near right is Brian Shipman. Craig is Group VP of Global Finance and Corporate Development and Brian is Group Vice President of Investor Relations. Craig has been at Gartner for about nine years and Brian about one year. Gartner is the leading technology research provider. They host the world’s largest IT conference every year called the Symposium IT Expo. And with that Craig you can give us brief presentation. Thank you. Craig Safian Great. Thanks, Dave. Good afternoon, everyone. As Dave mentioned my name is Craig Safian and I have responsibility at Gartner for running our global finance team, strategic planning and corporate development. I am going to give you a quick five minute little overview on Gartner. We’re going to let Dave ask us some questions and then open it up to the group here. Brian Shipman to my left here will join in and help answer any of those questions. So over the next several minutes I hope to give you really three major points about Gartner. First, how we deliver value to our clients; second, how we think about that strategy for growth; and third, how that value and that strategy has translated into our historical results and also how it translates into our long-term objectives. But before we dive into the details, I just want to give you a quick thumbnail sketch about Gartner.
