Thank you, Lauren. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to SJI's Third Quarter 2018 Earnings Conference Call and Webcast. I'm joined here today by Mike Renna, our President and Chief Executive Officer; as well as several additional members of our senior management team. Our earnings release and the presentation slides intended to accompany the call were issued yesterday after the close of the market and are also available on our website at www.sjindustries.com. The release and the associated 10-Q provide an in-depth review of earnings on both the GAAP and non-GAAP basis using our non-GAAP measure of economic earnings. Reconciliations of economic earnings to the comparable GAAP measures appear in both documents. Let me note just at the beginning here that throughout today's call, we'll be making references to future expectations, plans and opportunities for SJI. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by these statements as a result of various important factors, including those discussed in the company's Forms 10-K and 10-Q on file with the SEC. And with that said, I'm pleased to introduce our CEO, Mike Renna, who will discuss our current earnings performance and outlook. SJI's Principal Financial Officer, Ken Lynch, will then review the performance of our individual segments, who will be followed then by SJI's Treasurer and Principal Financial Officer for our utilities, Ann Anthony, who will review our balance sheet, cash flow and guidance. We'll then be happy to take your questions. So with that introduction, let me now turn it over to Mike.
