Just a quick overview of our agenda for the day. Rakesh will start with an overview of our business, some of the activities and the results. I'll follow that with a financial review and then our business units, we'll talk about some of the activities that they have. And including those that will drive our growth above market rates. So with that overview, I'm going to ask Rakesh to start the overview. Rakesh?
Thanks, Kirk, and good morning to everybody. See a lot of familiar faces and a few new faces. It's great for us to have you here in St. Louis. I know we didn't do this last year, we were here 2 years ago. And really last year was at the heels of my predecessor who had passed away a few months ago, which was really very tragic and I just taken the office. And so we decided that we would wait a year.Now I know we have been speaking with many of you over the course of last year, so it doesn't mean that we haven't been communicating and hopefully you've been hearing our story. And today we can get a chance to really give you that in a lot more detail. We have the entire management team here. You will see the management team. I haven't tell you that one of our management team members is not here today. We recently announced the appointment of Jan Bertsch, our new CFO in the company. We're very excited to have her on board. Unfortunately, she had a personal commitment that she had made a year ago and she could not get out of it. But she's anxiously looking forward to getting to know a lot of you and that will happen in due course. So again thanks for being here.
