Thank you, and welcome to Compass Diversified's Third Quarter 2020 Conference Call. Representing the company today are Elias Sabo, CODI's CEO; Ryan Faulkingham, CODI's CFO; and Pat Maciariello, COO of Compass Group Management. Before we begin, I would like to point out that the Q3 2020 press release, including the financial tables and non-GAAP financial measure reconciliations are available at the Investor Relations section.

On the company's website at www.compassdiversified.com. The company also filed its Form 10-Q with the SEC today after the market closed, which includes reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures discussed on this call and is also available at the Investor Relations section of our website. Please note that references to EBITDA in the following discussions refer to adjusted EBITDA as reconciled to net income in the company's financial filings.

The company does not provide a reconciliation of its full year expected 2020 adjusted EBITDA or 2020 payout ratio because certain significant reconciling information is not available without unreasonable efforts. Throughout this call, we will refer to Compass Diversified as CODI or the company. Now allow me to read the following safe harbor statement. During this conference call, we may make certain forward-looking statements, including statements with regard to the future performance of CODI subsidiaries, words such as believes, expects, plans, projects and future or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are subject to the inherent uncertainties and predicting future results and conditions. Certain factors could cause actual results to differ on a material basis from those projected in these forward-looking statements, and some of these factors are enumerated in the risk factor discussion in the Form 10-K as filed with the SEC for the year ended December 31, 2019, and as further updated in the forms 10-Q as filed with the SEC for the quarters ended March 31, 2020, June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2020, and as well as in other SEC filings.

In particular, the domestic and global economic environment is currently impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on our subsidiary company. Except as required by law, CODI undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
