spk_0: Thanks ken and good morning everyone. We would like to thank you for joining us today for our fiscal 2022 1st quarter conference call. I'll begin by making some general comments about the first quarter. Then I will hand the call over to rob to discuss our financial results and address our general market outlook. The first quarter of fiscal 2022 was marked by some turbulence as both we and our customers began to experience some supply chain disruptions Despite the rapidly improving improving COVID-19 situation in the United States, some parts of the world, particularly AsIA, continue to experience associated disruptions and difficulties. While the recovering global economy is clearly supportive of our long term goals for the company, we can expect some bumps along the road. For instance, the global supply chain challenges I just mentioned can and have had an effect on our customer spending plans. We all have experienced increasing lead times and shipping times for some components and subsystems which have in turn caused some delays in orders and deliveries. When we were planning our production schedule for the current year, we were able to get the pipeline flowing for certain key items such as PCBs and various other components. However, with so much activity getting underway simultaneously around the world, we are seeing some disruption to our supply chain. We think these situations are temporary, but they do insert an element of risk to our business, particularly with regard to the specific timing of activity. Another macro factor that has continued to weigh on our business is the lingering impact of Covid overseas. Specifically, some countries, particularly in the Asia pacific region, are still dealing with restrictions on business activity and access to outsiders. This has had an impact on our operations in Singapore and Malaysia, like the global supply chain disruption, we believe this issue will also mitigate over time as vaccinations increased worldwide, but it does present a near term challenge for us. Nonetheless, we saw some activity shift to the right during the quarter. Due to these issues. In a variety of other reasons. Looking at our first quarter results revenues were up on a year over year basis.
