Operator: Thank you for holding, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Alliant Energy's Third Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. At this time, all lines are in a listen-only mode. Today's conference is being recorded.

I would now like to turn the call over to your host, Susan Gille, Manager of Investor Relations at Alliant Energy.

Susan Trapp Gille - Manager, IR: Good morning. I would like to thank all of you on the call and on the webcast for joining us today. We appreciate your participation. With me here today are Pat Kampling, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer; Tom Hanson, , Vice President and CFO; and Robert Durian, Controller and Chief Accounting Officer as well as other members of the senior management team. Following prepared remarks by Pat and Tom, we will have time to take questions from the investment community.

We issued a news release this morning announcing Alliant Energy's third quarter 2012 earnings, updated 2012 earnings guidance, updated 2012 through 2016 capital expenditure guidance, and 2013 earnings guidance and dividend target. This release, as well as supplemental slides that will be referenced during today's call, are available on the Investor page of our website at

Before we begin, I need to remind you the remarks we make on this call and our answers to your questions include forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks that could cause actual results to be materially different. Those risks include, among others, matters discussed in Alliant Energy's press release issued this morning and in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We disclaim any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

In addition, this presentation contains non-GAAP financial measures. The reconciliations between the non-GAAP and GAAP measures are provided in the supplemental slides which are available on our website at

At this point, I'll turn the call over to Pat.

Patricia Kampling - Chairman, President and CEO: Good morning and thank you for joining us today. First, on behalf of all the employees at Alliant Energy, I would like to offer our encouragement and support for those of you impacted by Hurricane Sandy. We hope that you, your families and your businesses are on a path to recovery, and we wish you all the very best.

I must recognize the over 200 dedicated Alliant Energy employees who have been working in New York. I also want to thank them and their families for the personal sacrifices they have made to help those in need. To many of you on the call, our employees certainly appreciate the gratitude and encouragement you've shown our crews as you’ve seen them in your neighborhood. However, a very special thanks go to our employees who are maintaining the excellent customer service and reliability here at home, while our crews are away. I couldn’t be prouder of the compassion, work ethic and dedication of our entire organization.

Speaking of dedication, with Veteran's Day is a few days away, I would also like to take a moment and pay tribute to the 400 proud veteran's that work here at Alliant Energy and to those veterans that are on the call with us today.
