Thanks. Now let me introduce our President and CEO, Anand Nallathambi.

Anand K. Nallathambi - President and CEO: Thank you, Dan, and good morning, everyone. Welcome to CoreLogic’s first quarter earnings call. I will begin my remarks today with an overview of our first quarter operating results. I will then recap the progress we're making against our 2013 business plan, as well as our strategic growth initiatives. Frank will then cover our financial results, and we will end the call with Q&A.

CoreLogic delivered double-digit revenue growth with significantly higher levels of operating and net income, earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter. Our high-margin Mortgage Origination and Data & Analytics segments delivered strong topline growth in the quarter. Importantly, all three of our operating segments outperformed their respective markets.

For the first three months of 2013, we are ahead of our targets for Project 30 cost reductions, free cash flow conversion and repurchases of our common stock. We also continue to make significant progress on the technology transformation initiative. Our first quarter revenues were up about 11%. Revenues in our Mortgage Origination Services and Data & Analytics segments increased about 25% and 10%, respectively, as we gained market share and capitalized on higher demand for our must-have property information, analytics and services. These high-margin segments accounted for approximately 85% of our total first quarter revenues.
