Thank you, and good morning, everyone. Welcome to our second quarter conference call. With me today are George Paz, our Chairman and CEO; and Jeff Hall, our CFO.

Before we begin, I need to read the following Safe Harbor statement.

These matters involve certain risks and uncertainties. The company's actual results may differ significantly from those projected or suggested in any forward-looking statement due to a variety of factors, which are discussed in detail in our filing with the SEC. For clarity purposes, all numbers we talk about today will be on an adjusted basis.
