Dr. Krzysztof Burhardt: Thank you, Andrew. Good afternoon and thank you for joining us for todays conference call. I am Kris Burhardt, a director of the company. It has been my privilege to serve as the Chair for the companys Board of Directors for the past several years. With the change in the senior
management and other demands that will be placed on the Chair, the companys Board of Directors today elected Doug Neve as its new Board Chair. I will remain a director of the company and I am committed to participating in building a successful future for the company. I and my fellow Board members have a strong belief in this company and its strategic plans. Our new Chair, Doug Neve, was the Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of Ceridian Corporation, a business service company focusing on human resource management and solutions, and credit and debit card processing. Before then, he was a partner at the public accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche. Doug has been a director of AIC for nearly two years and will continue to serve as the Chair of the Audit Committee. Doug also serves as a Board member for a number of other public and private entities.
Thank you to you, our investors, for hanging in there with us over the past couple of years. This is a key turning point for the business. I look forward to what lies ahead.
With that, I will turn things over to Doug and Andrew. Doug?
