William Nuti - Chairman and CEO: Thank you Gavin. And good afternoon, and thank you all for joining us. NCR is off to a good start in 2010, as summarized by slide number three in the accompanying presentation on our website. Our first quarter financial results were ahead of expectations and we are beginning to see signs of a slow but steady recovery in our core end markets.
Our return to revenue growth, gross margin improvement, cost and expense reduction and significant NPOI and EPS ex-pension growth were all positive indicators in the first quarter. These results signaled that we expect to be a return-to-growth Company in 2010, and give us increased confidence in our outlook for full year revenue in operating earnings, which we are reaffirming today.
Returning NCR to growth is, of course, vital to building shareholder value. But so is addressing our pension liability and we are pleased to share with you today our strategy for addressing this issue. This roadmap is a result of a comprehensive analysis of our capital allocation strategy. We have chosen a three-year aggressive yet balanced approach that we believe should enhance shareholder value by significantly reducing the pension overhang on NCR’s equity valuation, while preserving our strategic and financial flexibility.
