Good morning. My name is Sean and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the OM Group First Quarter 2011 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.
I would now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Troy Dewar, Director of Investor Relations. Sir, you may begin the conference.
Thank you, Sean. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to our review of OM Group’s 2011 first quarter results. Joining me this morning are Joe Scaminace, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; Ken Haber, Chief Financial Officer; Steve Dunmead, Vice President and General Manager of Specialties and Greg Griffith, Vice President of Strategic Planning, Development and Investor Relations.
A copy of the press release we issued earlier this morning as well as the presentation materials that accompany our discussion can be found on the Investor Relations portion of our Web site at investor.omgi.com.
During the course of this call, we will be discussing certain non-GAAP financial measures. I’ll refer you to our company’s presentation materials for the reconciliation of those measures to GAAP financial measures.
