Operator: A very good day to you, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the Quarter One 2013 Ventas Earnings Conference Call. My name is Nancy. I will be your operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will conduct a question-and-answer session towards the end of this conference. As a reminder this call is being recorded for replay purposes.

I would now like to turn the call over to Ms. Lori Wittman, Senior Vice President, Capital Markets and Investor Relations. Please go ahead.

Lori Wittman - VP, Capital Markets: Thank you, Nancy. Good morning, and welcome to the Ventas conference call to review the Company's announcement today regarding its results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. As we start, let me express that all projections and predictions and certain other statements to be made during this conference call may be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Federal Securities laws.

The forward-looking statements are subject to many risks, uncertainties and contingencies, and stockholders and others should recognize that actual results may differ materially from the Company's expectations, whether expressed or implied.

We refer you to the Company's reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, and the Company's other reports filed periodically with the SEC for a discussion of these forward-looking statements and other factors that could affect these forward-looking statements.
