Good morning, and welcome to the Second Quarter Earnings Call for the CreXus Investment Corp. At this time, I would like to inform you that this conference is being recorded. [Operator Instructions] This earnings call may contain certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements which are based on various assumptions, some of which are beyond our control, may be identified by reference to a future period or periods or by use of forward-looking terminology, such as may, will, believe, expect, anticipate, continue or similar terms or variations on those terms or the negative of those terms. Actual results could differ materially from those set forth in forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, our business and strategy; our projected financial and operating results; our ability to obtain and maintain financing arrangements and the terms of such arrangements; general volatility of the securities markets and commercial real estate in which we invest; the implementation, timing and impact of and changes to various government programs affecting the capital markets and the economy; our expected investments; changes in the value of our investments and in the assets securing our investments; interest rate mismatches between our assets and our borrowings used to fund such assets; changes in interest rates and mortgage prepayment rates; risks relating to our counterparties; rates of default or decreased recovery rates on our investments; the degree to which our hedging strategies may or may not protect us from interest rate volatility; impact of and changes in governmental regulations, tax law and rates, accounting guidance and similar matters; availability of investment opportunities in real estate-related and other securities; availability of qualified personnel; estimates relating to our ability to make distributions to our stockholders in the future; the amount of commercial mortgage loans requiring refinancing; the amount of debt financing from lenders; the volume of short-term loan extensions; the demand for new capital to replace maturing loans; our understanding of our competition; and market trends in our industry, interest rates, the debt securities markets or the general economy. For a discussion of the risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements, see Risk Factors in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and all subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. We do not undertake and specifically disclaim any obligation to publicly release the result of any revisions, which may be made to any forward-looking statements to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances after the date of such statements.
