Good day everyone, and welcome to the Polypore International, Inc. fourth quarter 2011 conference. As a reminder, today's call is being recorded. At this time I would like to turn the call over to [Ms. Kathy Brosco] [ph]. Please go ahead, ma'am.
Thank you and hello everyone and thank you for joining us today. And welcome to our conference call to discuss our fourth quarter and full year 2011 financial results. As always, the results we discuss today can be found in our earnings announcement that was released yesterday afternoon and furnished on Form 8-K with the SEC. And a copy of the release is also available on our website at polypore.net in the 'Investor Relations' section.
In conjunction with this release, we also issued supplemental financial information yesterday which we filed as an 8-K, and also posted on our investor relations website. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this call. I'll refer you to the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most recent, most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure included in the earnings release.
