Marillyn A. Hewson - CEO and President: Thanks, Jerry. Good morning everyone and thank you for joining us on the call today. I hope you've all had a chance to review our third quarter earnings release and financial results.
The results directly illustrate the continuation of our strong operational and financial momentum and enabled us to increase our financial outlook for 2013.
The focus and efforts of our Lockheed Martin team continue to position to corporation to deliver solutions to customers and value to shareholders.
I offer my congratulations and appreciation to all of our employees and especially to those employees directly affected by the government shutdown. For their outstanding achievements and performance while operating in a challenging and dynamic environment.
While there were numerous financial accomplishments in the quarter that Bruce will outline in his comments I want to offer my thoughts on key strategic achievements this quarter. From my perspective beyond the program execution and financial results that remain exceptional other accomplishments can be seen in three key strategic areas.
These areas are backlog expansion, international growth and cash generation. We have continued to describe our portfolio as the best positioned in the sector. With unique and direct alignment to many of the essential programs identified by customers as they satisfy their national security requirements. Many of our programs have provided these solutions to customers over several decades, because they are proven and they are cost effective.
A direct validation of those alignment and position of our programs to customer needs is visible with our achievement of increasing levels of annual backlog for the past three years ending with over $82 billion in backlog at year-end 2012, while operating in a challenging global and domestic economic environment.
