Chad Plotkin - VP, IR: Thank you, Steve, and good morning everyone. I'd like to welcome you to NRG's first quarter 2013 earnings call.

This call including the presentation and Q&A session will be limited to one hour. We ask that you please limit yourself to only one question with just one follow-up.

Before we begin I urge everyone to review the Safe Harbor statement provided in today's presentation which explains the risks and uncertainties associated with future events and the forward-looking statements made in today's press release and presentation material. 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 the press release and this conference call.

In addition, please note that the date of this conference call is Tuesday, May 7, 2013, 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, the most directly comparable GAAP measures and a quantitative reconciliation of those figures, please refer to today's press release and its presentation.

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