Troy Dewar, you may begin your conference.
Thank you, Adrian. Good morning and welcome everyone to our review of OM Group’s 2011 third quarter results.
Joining me this morning are Joe Scaminace, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; Ken Haber, Chief Financial Officer; Steve Dunmead, Vice President and General Manager of Specialties; and Greg Griffith, Vice President of Strategic Planning, Development and Investor Relations.

During the course of this call, we will be discussing certain non-GAAP financial measures. I’ll refer you to the accompanying presentation materials for the reconciliation of those measures to GAAP financial measures. Comments made this morning by any of the participants on the call may include forward-looking statements based upon specific assumptions and subject to uncertainties and factors, which are difficult to predict. Actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied. A more complete disclosure regarding forward-looking statements can be found at the bottom of our press release or in our Form 10-K and applies to this call.
