Good day, ladies and gentlemen. And welcome to the Q4 2011 AOL Earnings Call. My name is Gary, and I will be your coordinator for today. At this time, all participants are on listen-only mode. Later, we will facilitate a question-and-answer session. As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes.
I would now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Eoin Ryan, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please proceed.
Good morning. Thanks, Gary, and everyone for joining us for our fourth quarter 2011 earnings call. You can find our Q4 earnings press release and accompanying slides, and trending schedules on our website.
On the call with me today is our Chairman and CEO, Tim Armstrong; and our Chief Financial Officer and President of AOL Services, Artie Minson. Tim and Artie will make some brief remarks on the quarter on our overall strategy and then we will open the lines up for Q&A.
But first, I will remind you that during this call, we may discuss our outlook for future financial and operating performance, corporate strategy, marketing and product plans, technology improvements, cost initiatives, planned investments, as well as our expectations for the economy and online advertising in general.
