Certain material factors or assumptions were applied in drawing a conclusion or while making a forecast or projection as reflected in the forward-looking information.

Before we begin, I'd like to announce that Open Text will be hosting an Analyst Day at our Content World Conference in Orlando, Florida on Wednesday, November 16. The Analyst Agenda will feature product demonstrations, as well as executive presentations with an overview of sales and operations or product roadmap, as well as profiling other strategic areas of the business. As of previous analyst days, the program will be integrated with the conference itself. And the participating analysts will have full freedom to interact with the conference attendees and customers on site. More details are available on our website or by contacting our Investor Relations Group.
And with that, I'll turn the call over to Paul.
