Thank you, Juan. Good morning everyone and thanks for joining us for our first quarter fiscal year 2012 earnings call.
Before we begin, I’d like to provide our usual caution that this morning’s call may contain forward-looking statements, such as forecasts of business performance and company results, as well as expectations about the company’s plans and future initiatives. Actual results may differ materially from those projected. For an in-depth discussion of risk factors that could cause actual results to differ from those contained in forward-looking statements made on today’s call, please see the risk factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent quarterly reports on Forms 10-Q. We plan to file our 10-Q for the first quarter later this week.
