Thank you, Therese, and good morning. Welcome to Covanta’s first quarter 2012 conference call. It’s great to speak with all of you again. IR has had a busy quarter. In addition to our normal activities here in the U.S., we did a lengthy trip to Europe this past quarter. The feedback on the Covanta story and Management’s focus on shareholder friendly actions was very well received on both sides of the pond.
