Good day, everyone, and welcome to the Chubb Corporation's First Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. Today's call is being recorded.
Before we begin, Chubb has asked me to make the following statements. In order to help you understand Chubb, its industry and its results, members of Chubb's management team will include in today's presentation forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. It is possible that actual results might differ from estimates and forecasts that Chubb's management team might make today. Additional information regarding factors that can cause such differences appears in Chubb's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
In the prepared remarks and responses to questions during today's presentation of Chubb's first quarter 2012 financial results, Chubb's management may refer to financial measures that are not derived from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles or GAAP. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and related information is provided in the press release and the financial supplement for the first quarter 2012, which are available on the Investors section of Chubb's website at www.chubb.com.
