Good day, and welcome to the Anixter First Quarter Earnings Call. Today's conference is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the program over to Mr. Chris Kettmann for opening remarks and comments. Please go ahead, sir.
Thanks, operator. Good morning and thank you all for joining us today to discuss Anixter's first quarter 2012 results. By now, everyone should have received a copy of the press release, which was sent out earlier this morning. If anyone still needs a copy, you can go to Anixter's website or call Chris Kettmann at (312) 553-6716, and I can resend the information.
On the line today from the Anixter's management team are Bob Eck, President and CEO; and Ted Dosch, Executive Vice President and Finance. After mentioning complete their opening remarks, we'll open the line for a Q&A session.
