Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by and welcome to the 2012 First Quarter Conference Call. At this time, all lines are in a listen-only mode.

Tim McKenna

Cathy, good morning, welcome to Rockwood’s first quarter earnings conference call. Seifi Ghasemi, our Chairman and Chief Executive; and Bob Zatta, our Chief Financial Officer will give the formal presentation, after that we’ll have the Q&A session, and you can follow our slides on our website www.rocksp.com.

Before the call begins, I’ll read a short statement. The conference call may contain certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 concerning the business operations and financial conditions of Rockwood and its subsidiaries. Although Rockwood believes the expectations reflected in such statements are based upon reasonable assumption, there could be no assurance that its expectations will be realized. Forward-looking statements consist of all non-historical information, including statements referring to the prospects and future performance of Rockwood.
