Tom Majewski: Thank you, Peter. And welcome everyone to Eagle Point Income Company’s third quarter earnings call. We appreciate your interest in Eagle Point Income Company or EIC. If you haven’t done so already, we invite you to download our investor presentation from our website at eaglepointincome.com, which I will refer to in a portion of my remarks. The company continued its strong momentum from the first half of the year, as it generated another quarter-over-quarter increase in portfolio cash flows. Our portfolio is doing what we designed it to do in a rising rate environment generate more cash for our investors. Given our continued confidence in the portfolio, we were pleased last week to again increase our regular common distribution, the monthly distribution and beginning in January 2024.

This time, we increased our monthly distribution by 11% to $0.20 per share per month. This is the highest monthly common distribution per share in our history. To share a few highlights from the quarter, net investment income was $0.51 per share, which is excluding $0.13 per share of non-recurring expenses. Our recurring cash flows were $7.1 million or $0.76 per share comfortably in excess of our regular common distributions and operating expenses, excluding non-recurring items. We paid three monthly common distributions of $0.16 per share during the third quarter and are paying three monthly common distributions of $0.18 per share in the fourth quarter. And as I just noticed, we declared another increase in our monthly common distributions to $0.20 per common share for the first quarter beginning in January.
