All right. Thank you. Good afternoon, everybody. My name is Dan Callahan, Director of Communication at GWG Holdings. Welcome to the Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2019 Earnings Webcast.

On the webcast with me today are Murray Holland, our President and Chief Executive Officer; and Tim Evans, our Chief Financial Officer. Following our remarks, we'll be happy to take some questions.

If we don't get to one of yours, or if you have other questions out of this, feel free to contact us.
