Operator: Good morning. My name is Darlene, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the TECO Energy's Third Quarter Results Conference Call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers' remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions).
Thank you. I would now like turn the call over to the Director of Investor Relations, Mr. Mark Kane. Sir, you may begin your conference.
Mark M. Kane - Director, IR: Thank you, Darlene. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us for TECO Energy's third quarter results conference call and webcast this morning. Our earnings along with unaudited financial statements were released and filed with the SEC earlier this morning.
This presentation is being webcast and our earnings release, financial statements and the slides for this presentation are available on our website at tecoenergy.com. The presentation will be available through the website approximately two hours after the end of the presentation and will be available for 30 days.
In the course of our remarks today, we will be making forward-looking statements regarding our financial outlook and plans for the remainder of 2010 and preliminary 2011 information. There are a number of factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those that we'll discuss as our outlook and expectations today.
For a more complete discussion of these factors, we refer you to the discussions of the risk factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2009 and as updated in our subsequent filings with the SEC.
Also, today we'll be using non-GAAP measures in the course of the presentation. There are reconciliations to the nearest GAAP measures contained in the appendix in today's presentation.
On the call today, Sandy Callahan, our Chief Financial Officer, will cover the third quarter results, discuss what we're seeing in the local and Florida economies, update drivers for the remainder of 2010 and provide some primarily business drivers for 2011. Also with us today to assist in answering your question is TECO Energy's CEO, John Ramil.
Now, I'll turn it over to Sandy.
Sandra W. Callahan - VP, Finance and Accounting and CFO, CAO and Assistant Secretary: Thank you, Mark. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us on a busy day. I know there is a crush of utility earnings reports ahead of the EI.
Mark covered the agenda for today so I will move right into it. In the third quarter, our GAAP net income was $51 million, or $0.24 a share compared to $64.8 million, or $0.30 a share in 2009. Net income this quarter included $23.1 million of net charges and gains including a $24.9 million tax charge on undistributed earnings as a result of the sale of DECA II and a $1.8 million benefit from the recovery of fees from the previously sold McAdams Power Station.
In the third quarter of 2009, net income included $20.6 million of charges for restructuring and a write-off of project development cost at Tampa Electric. Excluding these charges and gains, non-GAAP results were $74.1 million, or $0.35 a share this quarter compared to $85.6 million, or $0.40 in 2009 and remember that non-GAAP results this quarter were negatively impacted by a $14.7 million, or $0.07 a share as a result of Tampa Electric's recognition of the $24 million one-time reduction in base revenue under the Florida Public Service Commission approved regulatory stipulation.
