Peter H. Pfeiffer

Thank you, Ralph. Good morning, everyone. I will begin now the discussion with the review of our consolidated results for the third quarter, our expansion in India and our outlook for the fourth quarter. Afterwards, I will briefly comment on the results of our Beauty & Home segment. Steve will follow me with his comments on the Pharma and Food & Beverage segments, and then Bob will review our financials in more detail.

Looking to at our quarterly performance, we are pleased to report record third-quarter results. All 3 segments continued strong core sales growth. Currency translation effects also contributed to our sales growth. We also achieved record third-quarter earnings per share, primarily on the strength of our Pharma segment. As you saw in our press release, we are expanding our presence in India, which is an important and growing market for us. The acquisitions allows us to better serve our Personal Care and Food + Beverage, and Personal Care and Food + Beverage customers. And the clean-room facility will enable us to provide locally produced delivery devices to our pharmaceutical customers.
