Thank you, Karen. Good morning, everyone. And welcome to today's conference call to discuss TPC Group’s fourth quarter and full year 2011 earnings results. With me today is Mike McDonnell, President and Chief Executive Officer; along with Miguel Desdin, Senior VP and CFO.
While management will not be referencing slides today, we have posted a presentation online that includes supplemental financial information about the quarter and full year. These slides along with other quarterly financial results can be found in the Investor Relations section on our website at tpcgrp.com.
Please note the slide in the presentation which refers to the forward-looking statements and says that statements made during this call that refer to management’s expectations and/or future predictions are forward-looking statements intended to be covered by the Safe Harbor provisions of the Securities Act.
