Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Monotype Imaging Complete Acquisition of the Bitstream's Font Business Conference on the 20th of March, 2012. [Operator Instructions] I will now hand the conference to Staci Mortenson. Please go ahead, Madame.
Thank you, and good morning, everyone. With me this morning are Doug Shaw, President and Chief Executive Officer; and Scott Landers, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Today, we will review the acquisition of Bitstream's font business, which we announced following the close of the market yesterday. We'll then open up the call for questions.
Before we begin, I'd like to remind everyone that matters we're discussing today and the information contained in the press release announcing the acquisition of Bitstream's font business that are not historical facts are considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements including predictions, estimates, expectations and other forward-looking statements generally identifiable by the use of the words believe, will, expect or similar expressions are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. Accordingly, participants on today's call are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which reflect management's opinion only as of today's date, March 20, 2012. Information on potential factors and detailed risks that could affect the company's actual results of operations is included in filings made with the SEC by Monotype Imaging and Bitstream. The company undertakes no obligation to revise or publicly release the results of any revision to the forward-looking statements or on this morning's conference call other than through the filings that will be made with the SEC.
