Thank you, Jennifer. Happy new year, and welcome to the RPM International Inc. quarterly conference call for the second quarter ended November 30, 2011. As you saw from the earnings release this morning and related to our comments about our second quarter during our October conference call, there are a lot of moving parts in relationship to onetime gains in last year's second quarter and a number of offsetting onetime gains and onetime expenses in this year's second quarter, principally related to investment and acquisition activity.
