Thank you, Ella, and welcome to Aviat Networks fiscal 2019 second quarter results conference call. We just filed our Form 10-Q and issued our press release. You could also find our updated investor presentation, all documents can be found in the Investor Relations section of our website.

Speaking from management today will be Michael Pangia, President and Chief Executive Officer and Stan Gallagher, Chief Operating Officer. Shaun McFall, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development, is also with us and will be available during the Q&A portion of today's call.

Before reading our safe harbor statement, I'd like to remind everyone that last month management presented at the 21st Annual Needham Growth Conference, which was very well attended and we filed the event's transcript as an exhibit on Form 8-K.

Please note these forward-looking statements reflect the Company's opinions only as of the date of this call, and the Company undertakes no obligation to revise or publicly release the results of any revision of these forward-looking statements in light of new information or future events. Additionally, during today's call, management will reference both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. Please refer to our press release and financial tables therein, which include a GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation and other supplemental financial information.
