Thank you, Christine. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the CSW Industrials' fiscal first quarter 2021 earnings call. Joining me today are Joseph Armes, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of CSW Industrials; and James Perry, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. We issued our earnings release and presentation prior to the market opening today, and both are available on the Investor portion of our website at www.cswindustrials.com.

During this call, we will reference specific slides in the presentation. The call is being webcast, and information on how to access the replay is included in the earnings release.

During this call, we will be making forward-looking statements. These statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Actual results could materially differ because of factors discussed today in our earnings release and in the comments made during this call, as well as the Risk Factors section of our annual report on Form 10-K and other filings with the SEC.

We do not undertake any duty to update any forward-looking statements. I will now turn the call over to Joe Armes.
