QIAGEN's CEO Hosts Investor Day - Conference Call Transcript

We’re going to begin our program today with Peer Schatz, the CEO of QIAGEN, who will provide a strategic update. Our second speaker will be Helge Lubenow, Vice President and Head of our Molecular Diagnostics Business. Dr. James Mahony from McMaster University in Canada will be our third speaker, and he’ll provide some customer views on lab automation and, in particular, on QIAsymphony.

We’re going to then hold our first Q&A session. Roland Sackers, our Chief Financial Officer, and Dr. Ellen Sheets, our Chief Medical Officer, will also be participating in this Q&A session with our three speakers.

After a break, we’ll discuss our Personalized Healthcare business in greater detail. Our first speaker, as you can see, will be Dr. Stephen Little, Vice President of Personalized Healthcare. He will then be followed by Dr. Veena Singh from bioTheranostics in California. And then, afterwards, we’re going to hold a second Q&A session.

Following the event, I want to remind those of you here at AMP that we will be breaking up into three groups so that we can visit QIAGEN booth down on the exhibition floor. But before I turn over to Peer, I have to take care of the obligatory legal requirements.

Please keep in mind that the following discussion and responses to your questions reflect management’s view as of today, November 17, 2011. As we share information to help you better understand our business, we will make statements and provide responses that state our intentions, beliefs, expectations or predictions of the future.
