As a quick reminder we modified our segment reporting earlier in 2019 to better align with how we're running and tracking our business. Any comparisons between 2019 and 2018 at a segment level utilize 2018 segment results that have been recast to align with the 2019 segment reporting methodology. We'll start today's call with a set of prepared remarks by Barry Ben and Eric and then leave the remainder of the call open for questions and answers.
With that I would now like to turn the call over to Barry Davis.
