Good morning, my name is Amanda and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the OM Group fourth quarter 2011 results conference call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speaker’s remarks there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator instructions).

Comments made this morning by any of the participants on the call may include forward-looking statements based upon specific assumptions and subject to uncertainties and factors which are difficult to predict. Actual results could differ materially from those expressed on slide. A more complete disclosure regarding forward-looking statements can be found at bottom of OM Group’s press release or in their Form 10-K and applies to this call. At this time, I will now turn the call over to Mr. Joseph Scaminace, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
