Thank you, Eric. Before discussing our quarterly results, I would like to again express my appreciation for the Amplify team. Despite market disruptions related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we delivered in an outstanding quarter and exceeded our expectation regarding the liquidity enhancement initiatives that were previously discussed during our first quarter earnings call.

I'm extremely grateful for the dedication and professionalism demonstrated by our employees across the organization and reaffirm Amplify's commitment to operate in an efficient and safety focused Company. During this call, I will provide comments on our second quarter performance as well as updates regarding our previously announced liquidity enhancement initiatives and hedging program.
