Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by and welcome to the 2011 Full-Year and Fourth Quarter Conference Call. At this time all participants are in a listen-only mode.

I’d now like to turn the conference over to our host, Mr. Tim McKenna, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead.

Tim McKenna

Thank you. Good morning, welcome to our fourth quarter and full-year conference call. Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman and Chief Executive; and Bob Zatta, Chief Financial Officer will give a formal presentation after which we will have Q&A session. Our slides for this call are available on our website www.rocksp.com.

Before I begin the call, I’m going to read a short statement. The conference call may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 concerning the business operations and financial conditions of Rockwood Holdings and its subsidiaries. Although Rockwood believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumption, there is no assurance that its expectations will be realized. Forward-looking statements consist of all non-historical information, including statements referring to the prospects and future performance of Rockwood.
