Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by and welcome to the Sally Beauty Holdings fiscal 2012 first quarter earnings results. At this time, all lines are in a listen-only mode. Later, we will conduct a question-and-answer session. Instructions will be given at that time. I would now like to turn the conference over to your host, Ms. Karen Fugate. Please go ahead.
Thank you.
