Presentation

James West – Barclays Capital

Good afternoon everyone and we’re going to move right along. Next we’re going to hear from Chart Industries, one of the most unique equipment suppliers we cover, and we think an excellent way to invest in the unfolding energy infrastructure build out cycle and in particular, the growth in LNG.

Speaking for the company this afternoon or I guess this morning or lunch time will be Sam Thomas, Chart’s Chairman, President and CEO. Sam joined Chart in 2003. He immediately restructured the business. Sam was responsible for moving most of manufacturing operations to China, Eastern Europe, lowering the CapEx requirements of the business and refocusing the company at that time on the hydrocarbon markets. This strategy paid off last cycle in a big way. We think it’s clearly going to payoff this cycle.

Order rates have improved, backlog is rising. It’s also been a busy few quarters for Chart. The company has secured the major contract wins in Middle East and Southeast Asia and recently completed the acquisition of AirSep, which we believe was highly accretive.

Please welcome back to the CEO of Energy Conference, Sam Thomas.
