Welcome to ANSYS Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2011 Conference Call. With us today are Mr. Jim Cashman, President and Chief Executive Officer and Maria Shields, Chief Financial Officer. At this time I would like to turn the call over to Mr. Cashman.
Good morning and again thanks to everybody for joining us to discuss the ANSYS fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011 financial results. So consistent with what we are doing through 2011 we are going to stay with that same protocol. I will just say all of the general information, key topics relative to the quarter and full year business results, as well as our future outlook are included within the earnings release and in the prepared remarks that we posted on the home page of our investor relations website this morning.
So as always before we get started I would like to introduce Maria Shields as pre-mentioned, our CFO for the Safe Harbor statement. Maria?
