Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the First Quarter 2018 Matador Resources Company Earnings Conference Call. My name is Ayala, and I will be serving as the operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will facilitate a question-and-answer session at the end of the company's remarks.

As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes, and the replay will be available on the company's website through May 31, 2018, as discussed in the company's earnings press release issued yesterday.

I will now turn the call over to Mr. Mac Schmitz, Capital Markets Coordinator for Matador. Mr. Schmitz, you may proceed.

Mac Schmitz

Thank you, Ayala. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us for Matador's first quarter 2018 earnings conference call. Some of the presenters today will reference certain non-GAAP financial measures regularly used by Matador Resources in measuring the company's financial performance. Reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures with the comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are contained at the end of the company's earnings press release.

As a reminder, certain statements included in this morning's presentation may be forward-looking and reflect the company's current expectations or forecasts of future events based on the information that is now available. Actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially is contained in the company's earnings release and its most recent annual report on Form 10-K.

Finally, in addition to our earnings press release issued yesterday, I would like to remind everyone that you can find a short slide presentation summarizing the highlights of our first quarter 2018 press release on our website on the Presentation & Webcasts page under the Investors tab.

And with that, I would now like to turn the call over to Mr. Joe Foran, our Chairman and CEO. Joe?
