Brad Archer

Thanks, Mark. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us today to discuss our fourth quarter and full year 2019 results. Before we get started, I would like to take a second to acknowledge the recent volatility in global financial and commodity markets, which have consequently put significant pressure on the price of crude oil. These events have created macro uncertainties that have rippled through the markets, and we will continue to closely monitor any potential effects to our business.

Now, turning back to 2019. I want to first look at the cumulative steps we have taken in the first year of being a public company to solidify our competitive advantage and add to our unmatched network of first-class communities and service offerings, while strategically positioning Target to produce industry-leading returns over the long term. We created strong operational momentum throughout 2019 and continue to position Target as the leading provider of specialty hospitality accommodations and services in the US. We successfully integrated two acquisitions and combined with organic bed additions, increased our average utilized beds 44% to a record of over 12,000. We expanded multiple communities as demand for our premier full turnkey services
