Operator: Good day, and welcome to the Healthcare Trust of America Second Quarter 2013 Earnings Conference Call. All participants will be in a listen-only mode. After today's presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Please note this event is being recorded.
I would now like to turn the conference over to Robert Milligan, Senior Vice President of Corporate Finance. Please go ahead.
Robert Milligan - SVP, Corporate Finance: Thank you. And welcome to Healthcare Trust of America's second quarter earnings call. Joining me on the call today are Scott Peters, our President and Chief Executive Officer and Kellie Pruitt, our Chief Financial Officer.
We'll be happy to take your questions at the conclusion of our prepared remarks. Last night, we filed our second quarter's earnings release for 2013. These documents can be found on the Investor Relations section of our website or with the SEC. This call is being webcast live from our website and will be available for replay for the next 90 days.
During the course of this call, we will make forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on the current beliefs of the management and the information currently available to us. Our actual results will be affected by known and unknown risks, trends, uncertainties, and factors that are beyond our control or ability to predict. Although, we believe that our assumptions are reasonable, they are not guarantees of future performance. Therefore, our actual future results can be expected to materially differ from our expectations. For a more detailed description on some potential risks, please refer to our SEC filings, which can be found in the Investor Relations section of our website.
I will now turn the call over to Scott Peters, President and CEO of Healthcare Trust of America. Scott?
Scott D. Peters - Chairman, President and CEO: Thank you, Robert and good morning everyone. We appreciate you joining our call today as we discuss HTA second quarter performance. At Healthcare Trust of America, as you are aware, we are focused on the medical office building sector, acquiring a leading portfolio through a very disciplined process, principally one after this time, with a focus on growth, stability, management expertise and creating long-term shareholder value. In addition our organization has dedicated 100% to the medical office sector and we do not spend time on development or the other healthcare asset types.
Our Company is approximately 3.5 billion in size with 12.9 million square feet in 27 states. That makes us one of the largest owners of MOBs in the country. However, our site still affords us the ability to demonstrate meaningful acquisition growth through our rifle shot approach of acquiring targeted assets.
Over the last three years, we have created what we believe is a unique, regionally based asset management and leasing platform that optimizes the occupancy, efficiencies and relationships that are critical in achieving lasting same-store growth. As a management team, we believe we have a Company that is well positioned to grow and succeed as the economy recovers and the healthcare landscape evolves under the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.
