Transcript Call Date 11/04/2010

Operator: Good day, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Third Quarter 2010 NRG Energy Earnings Conference Call. My name is Zumira and I'll be your operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will conduct question-and-answer session towards the end of this conference.

I'd now like to turn this conference over to your host for today's call, Ms. Nahla Azmy, SVP of Investor Relations. Please proceed.

Nahla Azmy - SVP, IR: Thank you, Zumira. Good morning and welcome to our third quarter 2010 earnings call. This call is being broadcast live over the phone and from our website at www.nrgenergy.com. You can access the call presentation and press release through a link from the Investor Relations page of our website. A replay of the call will also be available on our website.

This call, including the formal presentation and question-and-answer session, will be limited to one hour. In the interest of time, we ask that you please limit yourself to one question, with just one follow-up.

Now, for the obligatory Safe Harbor statement; during the course of this morning's presentation, management will reiterate forward-looking statements made in today's press release, regarding future events and financial performance. These forward-looking statements are subject to material risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.

We caution you to consider the important risk factors contained in our press release and other filings with the SEC that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements in this press release and this conference call.

In addition, please note that the date of this conference call is November 4, 2010, and any forward-looking statements that we make today are based on assumptions that we believe to be reasonable as of this date. We undertake no obligation to update these statements, as a result of future events, except as required by law.

During this morning's call, we will refer to both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's operating and financial results. For complete information regarding our non-GAAP financial information to most directly comparable GAAP measures and a quantitative reconciliation of those figures, please refer to today's press release and this presentation.

Now with that, I'd like to turn the call over to David Crane, NRG's, President and Chief Executive Officer.

David Crane - President and CEO: Thanks, Nahla and good morning everyone. Let me start by introducing my colleagues here participating in this presentation. I'm joined by Mauricio Gutierrez, our Chief Operating Officer, and by Chris Schade our Chief Financial Officer. Also available to answer your questions will be Jason Few, who runs Reliant retail business on our behalf and our Chris Moser, who is responsible for Commercial Operations at NRG.

So to begin, as we know the equity markets are relentlessly forward-looking. So, I'm going to spend most of time looking forward as well. I do want to dwell for a moment and you should be looking at slide 3, if you are following along in the presentation. On what this Company accomplished in the third quarter of 2010 and what we are in the process of accomplishing year-to-date.
