Greetings, and welcome to the Graham Corporation First Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Results. [Operator Instructions]

It is now my pleasure to introduce your host, Chris Gordon, Investor Relations for Graham Corporation. Thank you, Mr. Gordon, you may begin.

Christopher Gordon

Thank you, Devin, and good morning, everyone. We appreciate you joining us today to discuss Graham's Fiscal 2021 First Quarter Results. You should have a copy of the news release that was distributed across the wire this morning. We also have slides associated with the commentary that we are providing here today. If you do not have the release or the slides, you can find them on the company's website at On the call with me today are Jim Lines, our President and Chief Executive Officer; Jeff Glajch, our Chief Financial Officer; and Alan Smith, Vice President and General Manager of our Batavia, New York facility. Jeff will start with the financial overview of the period.

With that, it's my pleasure to turn the call over to Jim.

By the end of May, we were back at near-normal on-site staffing and have continued at that level over the past two months. I want to compliment Alan Smith and his team for ensuring a safer production environment in this difficult time as well as our human resources team for their continued
