….services team with Bob Willoughby. We are happy to have such a strong animal health contingent this year at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Health Care Conference. Up next, we have VCA Antech, the leading animal hospital chain and leader of what we’d like to call the diagnostic sector. And with that, I’ll hand it over to the Chief Financial Officer, Tom Fuller. Tom Fuller Thank you, Erin. I am Tom Fuller, the CFO of VCA. With me is Jeff Framer, who is actually our new Corporate Controller. And about six months ago I think Jeff has the – unfortunately he jumped into a company and spend the last six months at Vetstreet managing the financial side of that business, which is a great business that we’re behind schedule and we’re trying to achieve. But he’s doing a great job. So he is here today. As you take a moment to peruse our Safe Harbor disclosure, take a moment to reflect on what amazing company we have and what we’ve done. Just noticed one of our latest versions of the hat is 1986, which is actually, Bob’s asked me what that stands for, and that’s actually when we started the company, so we’re in our 25th year now. Look back what we’ve accomplished the past 25 years, it’s really transformative; invested in the industry, really created an industry.
