Presentation

Operator

Good afternoon. My name is Lisa and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Universal Corporation fiscal year 2010 results conference call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers' remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) Thank you.

Ms. Karen Whelan, you may begin your conference.

Karen Whelan

Thank you for joining us. George Freeman, our Chairman, President and CEO; and David Moore, our Chief Financial Officer, are here with me today and they will join me in answering questions after these brief remarks.

This call is being webcast live and will be available on our website and on telephone taped replay. It will remain on our website until August 4th, 2010. So if you are listening to this call after that date or if you are reading a transcription, we have not authorized such recording or transcription and it has been made available to you without our permission, review, or approval. We take no responsibility for such presentation. Any transcription inaccuracies or omissions or failure to present available updates are the responsibility of the party who is providing it to you.

Before I begin to discuss our results, I caution you that we will be making forward-looking statements that are based on our current knowledge and some assumptions about the future. So I urge you to read our 10-K for the year-ended March 31st, 2010, which we filed today, for information on some of the factors that can affect our estimates.
