Good afternoon and welcome to the Equinix Third Quarter Earnings Conference Call. All lines will be in a listen-only mode and to be open for questions. Also today’s call is being recorded. If anyone has any objections, you may disconnect at this time. I will now turn the call over to Ms. Katrina Rymill, Vice President of Investor Relations. You may begin.
Katrina Rymill — Vice President, Investor Relations
Thank you. Good afternoon and welcome to today’s conference call. Before we get started, I’d like to remind everyone that some of the statements we’ll be making today are forward-looking in nature and involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may vary significantly from those statements and may be affected by the risks we identified in today’s press release and those identified in our filings with the SEC including our most recent Form 10-K filed on February 26, 2018 and 10-Q filed on August 8, 2018. Equinix assumes no obligation and does not intend to update or comment on forward-looking statements made on this call. In addition, in light of Regulation Fair Disclosure, it is Equinix’s policy not to comment on its financial guidance during the quarter unless it is done through an explicit public disclosure. In addition, we’ll provide non-GAAP measures on today’s conference call. We provide a reconciliation of those measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures and the list of the reasons why the company uses these measures in today’s press release on the Equinix IR page at www.equinix.com. We have made available on our IR page of our website a presentation designed to accompany this discussion along with certain supplemental financial information and other data. We would also like to remind you that we post important information about Equinix on the IR page from time to time. I encourage you to check our website regularly for the most current available information. With us today are Charles Meyers, Equinix’ CEO and President; and Keith Taylor Chief Financial Officer.
Following our prepared remarks, we’ll be taking questions from sell-side analysts. In the interest of wrapping this call up in an hour, we like to ask these analysts to limit any follow-on question to just one. At this time, I’ll turn the call over to Charles.
Charles J. Meyers — Chief Executive Office
