Thank you, operator. And thank you to everyone who has joined us for Staffing 360's Fiscal Q1 2020 financial results conference call. I'm joined today by Alicia Barker, our Chief Operating Officer, and by Sharnika Viswakula, our Corporate Controller and Principal Accounting Officer.

I will start my remarks by saying, as I did on our last call, that I hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe during this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. The well-being of our staff, contractors, and clients has continued to be our main priority since the virus was discovered and the outbreak spread to our geography.

Sharnika will provide more depth to our financial results, and Alicia will update you about how our business has managed through this environment from a practical perspective, including how we have begun to reopen our offices while ensuring that we continue to provide our customary best-in-class client service. Alicia will also express our views supporting social and racial equality in this time of civil unrest.

I'll begin with an overview of our financial and operational performance covering the first quarter of 2020. Then, I will hand the call over to Sharnika for further details, after which Alicia will update us on the operational impact of COVID-19 pandemic and our continuing response to it. I will finish by outlining what we're seeing performance-wise in the second quarter, what our near-term plans are in relation to our acquisition strategy, and our intended refinancing of our business. The line will then be open for questions.

As outlined in our press release on Friday, revenue for Q1 2020 was $58.7 million with gross profit at $10.6 million. Both of these metrics are in line with the numbers previously estimated on the year-end call. The
