Good afternoon and welcome to CorePoint Lodging's Third Quarter 2019 Earnings Conference Call. Everyone should have received a copy of our earnings release issued earlier this afternoon. This release, along with our 10-Q when available can be found on our Investor Relations page. In a moment, we will have some prepared comments from Keith Cline, our President and Chief Executive Officer and Dan Swanstrom, our Chief Financial Officer. Also in the room with us today is Rob Song, our SVP of Investments.

Before we start, I would like to remind everyone that this presentation includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which reflect the Company's current view of future events and financial performance.

Words such as outlook, expect, will, plan, anticipate, intend, believe and other similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Any such forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, such that the Company's future or actual results could differ materially from the historical results or current expectations or from that which is expressed or implied by any such forward-looking statements. For more details on these risks, please refer to the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In addition, into this remarks, we will refer to adjusted EBITDAre and adjusted FFO, which are non-GAAP financial measures. You may find reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in our earnings press release, which is also included as an exhibit to the Form 8-K we filed with the SEC. Which may be found at our website at Finally, for those listening to a replay of this call after November 13, 2019, we remind you that this presentation will not be updated and it is possible that the information discussed will no longer be current.

With that, I will now turn the call over to our President and CEO, Keith Cline.
