Good day and welcome to the Signet Jewelers Q3 results conference call. Today’s conference is being recorded.
At this time I would like to turn the conference over to Tim Jackson. Please go ahead.
Good morning and welcome to the conference call for our third quarter results. I am Tim Jackson, Investor Relations Director. With me are Mike Barnes, CEO; and Ron Ristau, CFO. The presentation deck we will be talking to is available from the webcast section of the company’s website
Before I hand over to Mike, I will give the Safe Harbor statement. During today’s presentation, we will in places discuss Signet’s business outlook and make certain forward-looking statements. Any statements that are not historical facts are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties and actual results may differ materially. We urge you to read the risk factors, cautionary language and other disclosures in the Annual Report on Form 10-K that was filed with the SEC on March 30, 2011.
