Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by and welcome to the CTG Quarterly Investor Call.
I'd now like to turn the conference over to your host, Jim Culligan, Director of Investor Relations. Please go ahead.
Thank you, Shaun, and good morning, everyone.
With me on today's call are Filip Gyde, CTG's President and Chief Executive Officer, and John Laubacker, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
Before we begin, I want to remind listeners that statements made during the course of this conference call that state the company's or management's intentions, hopes, beliefs, expectations and predictions for the future are forward-looking statements. It's important to note that the company's actual results could differ materially from those projected. These forward-looking statements are based on information as of today, Tuesday, July 21, 2020. The company assumes no obligation to update these statements based on information from and after the date of this conference call. Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ from those made in the forward-looking statements is contained in today's earnings press release, as well as in the company's SEC filing.
In addition, the company's press release and management statements during the call include discussions of certain adjusted non-GAAP measures and financial information. These financial measures and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results are provided in both today's press release and the related Form 8-K.
With that, I will now turn the call over to Filip for his opening remarks.
