All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers’ remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session.
Thank you. Mr. Ian Clements, you may begin your conference.
Thank you, operator and good afternoon, everybody. I’d like to welcome you to our conference call to discuss our financial and operating results for fiscal 2012 first quarter. Today is the one-year anniversary of the commercial launch of NUEDEXTA. Hence this is an opportune time to discuss the success of our initial launch phase and the strong momentum heading into 2012.
We have recently undertaken several initiatives to help accelerate revenue growth and deliver meaningful returns to our shareholders. To discuss our results and these initiatives, I’m joined by Keith Katkin, President and Chief Executive Officer, who will provide a strategic overview of our performance, Christine Ocampo, Vice President of Finance, who will provide additional details on our financial performance during the quarter and Dr. Joao Siffert, Senior Vice President, Research and Development who will provide an R&D update. For the Q&A portion of today’s call, we will also be joined by Dr. Randall Kaye, Chief Medical Officer.
