Thank you Valerie, and good morning everyone. Welcome to the Chico’s FAS Second Quarter Earnings conference call and webcast. David Dyer, CEO and Pam Knous, CFO are here with me at our national store support center in Fort Myers.

Before Dave begins his executive overview, we would like to remind you that our discussion this morning includes forward-looking statements which are subject to and protected by the Safe Harbor statement found in our SEC filings and in today’s earnings release. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. The Company does not undertake to publicly update or revise its forward-looking statements even if experience or future changes make it clear that projected results expressed or implied by such statements will not be realized.
