Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by and welcome to the EMCORE Corporation Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Earnings 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. As a reminder, today's call is being recorded.

At this time, I would like to turn the call over to Erica Mannion. Ma'am, Please go ahead.

Erica Mannion

Thank you and good morning everyone. Before we begin, we would like to remind you that the information provided here-in may include forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933

and Section 21E of the Exchange Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements are largely based on our current expectations and projections, about future events and trends affecting our business. Such forward-looking statements include in particular, projections about future results, statements about plans, strategies, business prospects, changes and trends in the business and in the market in which we operate.

Management cautions that these forward-looking statements relate to future events or our future financial performance and are subject to business, economic and other risks and uncertainties. Both known and unknown that may cause actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of the business or our industry to be materially different from those expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements. We caution you not to rely on these statements and to also consider the risks and uncertainties associated with these statements and the business -- excuse me, that are included in the company's filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission that are available on the SEC website located at www.sec.gov.

Including the sections entitled Risk Factors in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. The company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to conform such statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations, except as required by applicable law or regulation. In addition, references will be made during this call to non-GAAP financial measures, which we believe provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors. The non-GAAP measures reflect the company's core ongoing operating performance and facilitates comparisons across reporting periods.

Investors are encouraged to review these non-GAAP measures, as well as the explanation and reconciliation of these measures to the most comparable GAAP measures included at the end of our earnings press release, included as Exhibit 99.1 to the Form 8-K we furnished to the SEC yesterday. These materials can also be accessed in the investor section of our website at www.emcore.com.

With me today from EMCORE are Jeff Rittichier, President and Chief Executive Officer; and Tom Minichiello, Chief Financial Officer. Jeff will begin with a review of the fourth quarter and the business highlights and Tom will review the financial results, before opening the call up for questions.

Now I will turn the call over to Jeff.

Jeffrey Rittichier
