Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Second Quarter 2011 ACCO Brands Corporation Earnings Conference Call. My name is Stacy, and I'll be your conference moderator for today. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes. I would now like to turn the presentation over to your host for today to Ms. Jennifer Rice, Vice President, Investor Relations. Please proceed.
Good morning, and welcome to our second quarter 2011 conference call. Speaking on the call today are Bob Keller, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ACCO Brands Corporation; and Neal Fenwick, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
Slides that accompany this call have been posted to the Investor Relations section of accobrands.com. Each slides provide detailed information to supplement this call. When speaking to earnings per share, we are using a normalized effective tax rate of 30%.
During the call, we may make forward-looking statements and based on certain risk factors, our actual results could differ materially. Please refer to our press release and SEC filings for an explanation of those factors. Following our prepared remarks, we will hold a Q&A session. Now it is my pleasure to turn the call over to Mr. Keller.
