Good day, and welcome to the Compass Minerals Fourth Quarter Earnings Conference. Today's call is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the conference over to Ms. Peggy Landon. Please go ahead.

Peggy Landon

Thank you, Brandy. Hello, everyone. Thanks for joining us this morning. With me here are Angelo Brisimitzakis, our President and CEO; and Rodney Underdown, our CFO.

Before I turn the call over to them, let me remind you that today's discussion may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on the company's expectations as of today's date, February 8, 2012, and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause the company's actual results to differ materially. The differences could be caused by a number of factors, including those identified in Compass Minerals' most recent Form 10-K and 10-Q.

The company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements made today to reflect future events or development. You can find reconciliations of any non-GAAP financial information that we discuss today in our earnings release, which is available in the Investor Relations section of our website at compassminerals.com.
