Ladies and gentlemen thank you for standing by. Welcome to AptarGroup's Third Quarter 2011 Results Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] Introducing today's conference call is Ralph Poltermann, Executive Vice President and Treasurer for AptarGroup. Please go ahead, sir.
Ralph A. Poltermann
Thank you, Jonathan. Before I make my usual introduction, I want to be sure that you all are aware of a change taking place relating to our Investor Relations activities. I'm approaching my 30th anniversary with the company and I had decided to retire at the end of this year to start a new chapter of my life. So this call today will be my last one. Matt DellaMaria is taking over my Investor Relations responsibilities and worked very closely with Matt over the past couple of years and many of you have already had the opportunity to meet him. I'm confident that it will be a smooth transition for you. I've enjoyed and will certainly miss the engaging discussions we have had over the years and I wish all of you continued success in the future.
