Good day, everyone and welcome to the Newport Corporation Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results Conference Call. Today's conference is being recorded. At this time for opening remarks and introduction, I would like to turn the call over to Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Robert Phillippy. Please go ahead, sir.
Good afternoon, and welcome to Newport's Second Quarter 2011 Conference Call. With me is our Chief Financial Officer, Chuck Cargile.
Before we get started, I'd like to remind you that during the course of this conference call, we will be making a number of forward-looking statements that are based on our current expectations and involve various risks and uncertainties that are discussed in our periodic SEC filings. Although, we believe that the assumptions underlying these statements are reasonable, any of them could prove inaccurate, and there can be no assurance that the results will be realized.
In the second quarter of 2011, the Newport team delivered another strong financial performance. And we recently announced some outstanding progress on our strategic agenda with the signing of definitive agreements to acquire Ophir Optronics and High Q Laser. I will provide some additional information on the acquisition front later in today's call, but first, I want to touch on some of the highlights of the second quarter.
