West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. Q2 2010 Earnings Call Transcript

Many of the factors that will determine the company’s future results are beyond the ability of the company to control or predict. These statements are subject to known or unknown risks or uncertainties, and therefore, actual results could differ materially from past results and those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement. You should bear this in mind as you consider forward-looking statements. For a non-exclusive list of those factors, which could cause actual results to differ from expectations, please refer today's press release.

Investors are also advised to consult any further disclosures the company makes on related subjects in the company's 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K reports. The company undertakes no obligation to publicly update forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

In addition, during today's call management may make reference to non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted operating profits and adjusted diluted EPS. These measures have no standardized meaning prescribed by US GAAP and therefore, they may not be comparable to and should not be viewed as a substitute for US GAAP operating income and diluted EPS. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial results prepared in conformity to GAAP are provided in materials accompanying this morning's earnings release.

Again, this call is being recorded on behalf of West and is copyrighted material. It cannot be rerecorded or rebroadcast without the company's expressed permission. Your participation in this call implies your consent to our taping.

At this time, I would like to turn the call over to Dr. Don Morel, Chairman and CEO.

Don Morel
