Good morning. My name is Christie, and I'll be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Park Electrochemical Corp. Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Earnings Release Conference Call. [Operator Instructions]

At this time, I will turn today's call over to Mr. Brian Shore, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Shore, you may begin your conference.

Brian Shore

Thank you very much, operator. First of all, I want to apologize for the late start. We had some last-minute logistics problems, so we've been scrambling for the last half hour, but we made it, at least a little bit late. So sorry about that again.

I have with me, of course, Matt Farabaugh, our CFO. And this is our fourth quarter conference call. So Matt, why don't you get started with the financial analysis? And Matt is going to be reading from the transcript which was already posted on our website. And as you know, there's some detailed information in Matt's commentary, which is posted on our website. So I recommend you check the website for the details.

Go ahead, Matt.
