Good day, and welcome to the Second Quarter 2020 Kilroy Realty Corporation Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions]

Tyler H. Rose

Good morning, everyone. Thank you for joining us. On the call with me today are John Kilroy and several other senior members of our management team, who will be available for Q&A. At the outset, I need to say that some of the information we will be discussing is forward-looking in nature. Please refer to our supplemental package for a statement regarding the forward-looking information in this call and in the supplemental. This call is being telecast live on our website and will be available for replay for the next eight days, both by phone and over the internet. Our earnings release and supplemental package have been filed on a Form 8-K with the SEC and both are also available on our website.

John will start the call with a look at our industry and markets and then highlight second quarter activities and our priorities as we move through the second half of the year. I will review second quarter financial results, give an update on rent collections and then review our current financial position. Then we'll be happy to take your questions. We are once again calling in from different locations, so bear with us if there are any delays in our responses. John?

We've reduced our average annual expirations through 2022 to 4% or approximately 575,000 square feet, which compares to 6% at the beginning of the year and 5% as of last quarter.

We've received a lot of questions in recent months about how the pandemic could affect our industry, our markets and our company.
