Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to Nike’s fiscal 2006 fourth quarter conference call. For those of you who need to reference today’s press release, you’ll find it at www.nikebiz.com. Leading today’s call will be Pamela Catlett, Vice President of Investor Relations.Before I turn it over to Ms. Catlett, let me remind you that participants of this call will make forward-looking statements based on current expectations, and those statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. These risks and uncertainties are detailed in reports filed with the SEC, including forms 8-K, 10-K, and 10-Q.Some forward-looking statements concern futures orders that are not necessarily indicative of changes in total revenues for subsequent periods, due to the mix of futures and at-once orders, exchange rate fluctuations, order cancellations and discounts, which may vary significantly from quarter to quarter.

In addition, it is important to remember that a significant portion of Nike Inc.’s business, including equipment, most of Nike retail, Nike Golf, Converse, Cole Haan, Nike Bauer Hockey, Hurley and Exeter Brands Group are not included in these futures numbers.Finally, participants may discuss non-GAAP financial measures. A presentation of comparative GAAP measures and quantitative reconciliations can also be found at Nike’s website. This call might also include discussion of non-public financial and statistical information, which is also publicly available on that site.Now I ‚d like to turn the call over to Pam Catlett, Vice President of Investor Relations.Thank you and good afternoon everyone. Thank you for joining us today to discuss our full year and fourth quarter results for 2006. As the operator mentioned, we issued our results an hour ago, and if you need to reference them, you may find them on our website. You will also see that our results contain the reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP reported items, and the supplemental presentation that summarizes our financial results and contains highlights from our quarter, at the website again, nikebiz.com.

Joining us on today’s call will be Nike Inc. CEO, Mark Parker; followed by our Chief Financial Officer, Don Blair, who will give you an in-depth review of our financial results; and finally, you’ll hear from Charlie Denson, President of the Nike Brand. Following each of their prepared remarks, we’ll take your questions.As for questions, just a reminder that we’d like to allow as many of you to ask questions as possible in our allotted time, so we would appreciate your limiting your initial questions to two. In the event you have additional questions that are not covered by others, please feel free to requeue and we will do our very best to come back to you. And thank you in advance for your help with that.Now, it is my pleasure to turn it over to Nike Inc. CEO, Mark Parker.
