Presentation

Operator

Good morning. My name is Christie, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the KCI Second Quarter Earnings Call. [Operator Instructions] Thank you. I would now turn the conference over to Todd Wyatt, Vice President of Investor Relations.

Todd Wyatt

Thank you, and welcome to the KCI Second Quarter 2011 Earnings Conference Call. Today, we will review the results that were announced in our press release earlier this morning. Today's webcast and conference call will include prepared remarks by Cathy Burzik, our President and Chief Executive Officer; and Marty Landon, our Chief Financial Officer. We are also joined by other selected members of our senior leadership team. If you have not received a copy of KCI's earnings release, it is currently available on our corporate website at www.kci1.com. A replay of this webcast will be made available on our website shortly after the conclusion of the call.

Our conference call this morning will include forward-looking statements about our business, including guidance on future plans, revenues and earnings. These statements are based on current expectations and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from our expectations. More information about potential risk factors may be found in our filings with the SEC. Also, quarterly results discussed on this call may reflect various GAPP and non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation between the two is contained in our earnings release issued this morning.
