Thank you, Suzanne, and good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us today. This quarter, we made outstanding progress in our core initiatives to transform LogistiCare while continuing to prioritize the health, safety and well-being of our teammates, members and transportation partners during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Our second quarter EBITDA of $56.4 million exceeded the prior year comparable figure of $5.8 million, driven by operational improvements under our 6-pillar strategy, incremental contribution from the National MedTrans acquisition and lower utilization under our capitated contracts.

While we anticipate increased utilization during the second half of the year, we are in the midst of a fundamental transformation that will drive significant and sustainable operational improvements at LogistiCare. It all starts with the six pillars, act on the voice of the customer, place the right people in the right seats, implement strategic technology enhancements, optimize our contact centers, rebrand and drive cultural change and accelerate transformational growth.
