Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by, and welcome to the McDermott International Fourth Quarter 2011 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the call over to our host, Mr. Jay Roueche, McDermott's Treasurer and Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead.

John E. Roueche

Thank you, Diana, and thanks to all who are joining this morning. We appreciate you participating with us to discuss the fourth quarter and full year of 2011, which we released yesterday through our press release and our Form 10-K filing. As usual, joining me today are Steve Johnson, McDermott's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer; and Perry Elders, our Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Before I hand the call over to Steve, let me remind you that this event is being recorded and a replay will be available for a limited time on our website. In addition, some of our comments this morning will include forward-looking statements and estimates, including with regard to our view of 2012. These forward-looking comments are subject to various risks and uncertainties and they reflect management's views as of March 1, 2012. Please refer to our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available on our website, including the recently-filed Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and yesterday's 8-K, which provide a discussion of factors that may cause actual results to differ from management's projections, forecast, estimates and expectations.
