Good day, ladies and gentlemen. And welcome to the WillScot Fourth Quarter 2018 Conference Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. Later we will conduct a question-and-answer session, and instructions will be given at that time. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, this conference may be recorded.

I would now like to introduce your host for today's conference, Matt Jacobsen, Vice President of Finance. Sir, please begin.

Matt Jacobsen

Thank you and good morning. Before we begin, I'd like to remind you we will discuss forward-looking statements as defined under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ materially from those forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those discussed in our press release and the risk factors identified in our Form 10-K filed with the SEC later today. While we may update forward-looking statements in the future, we disclaim any obligation to do so. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, all of which speak only as of today.

We'd like to remind you that some of the statements and responses to your questions in this conference call may include forward-looking statements. As such, they're subject to future events and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from these statements. WillScot assumes no obligation and does not intend to update any such forward-looking statements. The press release we issued last night and the presentation for today's call are posted on the Investor Relations section of our website. A copy of the release has also been included in an 8-K that we submitted to the SEC. We will make a replay of this conference call available via webcast on the Company website.

For financial information that has been expressed on a non-GAAP basis, we've included reconciliations to the comparable GAAP information. Please refer to the tables in the slide presentation accompanying today's earnings release. Lastly, this morning, we're filing our 10-K with the SEC for the 2018 fiscal year. The 10-K will be available through the SEC or on the Investor Relations section of our website.

Now, with me today, I have Brad Soultz, our President and CEO; and Tim Boswell, our CFO. Brad will kick off today's call with a brief overview of WillScot's strategy, summarize our fourth quarter and full-year results, and provide an update on our progress related to integration activities, among other things. Tim will then provide additional detail on the financial results for the quarter and for the full-year 2018, and discuss what we're seeing for 2019 before we open up the call for questions.

With that, I'll turn the call over to Brad.

Bradley Soultz
