Greetings, and welcome to the CryoLife Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2011 Financial Conference Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. A brief question-and-answer session will follow the formal presentation. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.
It is now my pleasure to introduce your host, Steve Anderson, President and CEO for CryoLife. Thank you. Mr. Anderson, you may begin.
Good morning everyone, and welcome you to CryoLife’s Q4 and fiscal year 2011 conference call. This is Steve Anderson, CryoLife's President and CEO, and with me today is Ashley Lee, the company's Executive Vice President, CFO and COO.
This morning, we reported record revenues of $119.6 million and earnings $0.26 for the year ended December 31, 2011. We achieved these results while also making substantial investments in business development and in our share buyback program, and we still achieved our sixth consecutive year of solid profitability.
The agenda for today's call is as follows: Ashley will discuss this year's financial performance in detail. He will comment on the progress being made in the stock buyback program. I will comment on the technology and corporate acquisition that we made during the year. After my comments have been completed Ashley will return with financial guidance for 2012 that will include top line and bottom-line projections for this year.
