We believe these three tenets have produced industry leading shareholder returns and returns on investment capital. We will also discuss Core's long health philosophy of returning excess capital back to our shareholders.
And then Dick will follow with a detailed financial overview and additional comments regarding building shareholder value and Core's general industry outlook for 2012, which confirm our confidence in the trends of increasing activities in unconventional oil reservoirs in North and South America and especially international and deep water activities tied to crude oil developments worldwide.
Core cannot give specific Q2 revenue and earnings guidance as the company is in the process of a dual listing of our shares on the NYSE Euronext exchange in Amsterdam. We expect this listing to take place in mid May.
Then Monty will go in Core's three operating segments detailing our progress and discussing the continued successful introduction of new Core Lab technologies and services and then highlighting some of Core's operations and major projects. And then we'll open the call for a Q&A session.I'll turn it over to Dick for remarks regarding forward-looking statements. Dick? Dick Bergmark Thanks, David. Before we start the conference this morning I'll mention that some of the statements that we make during this call may include projections, estimates, and other forward-looking information. This would include any discussion of the company's business outlook. These types of forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties relating to the oil and gas industry, business conditions, international markets, international political climate and other factors including those discussed in our '34 Act filings that may affect our outcome. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize or should any one of our assumptions prove incorrect actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in the forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
