Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Third Quarter 2011 Amkor Technology Earnings Conference Call. My name is Camille, and I’ll be your conference operator for today’s call. (Operator Instructions) Following the presentation, the conference will be opened for questions. This conference call is being recorded today, Thursday, October 27, 2011, and will run for up to one hour.
Before we begin this conference call, Amkor would like to remind you that there will be forward-looking statements made during the course of this conference. These statements represent current view of Amkor management. Actual results could vary materially from such statements.
Prior to the conference call, Amkor’s third quarter 2011 earnings release was filed with the SEC on Form 8-K. The earnings release together with Amkor’s other SEC filings contain information on risk factors, uncertainties and exceptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from Amkor’s current expectations.
I would now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Ken Joyce, Amkor’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you, Camille, and good afternoon, everyone. With me today is Joanne Solomon, our Chief Financial Officer.
Today I’ll talk about third quarter results, some steps we are taking to mitigate the challenges to profitability that we’ve been experiencing in 2011 and guidance for the fourth quarter. Joanne will then discuss our financial performance in more detail and finally we’ll open up the call for your questions.
