Jeffrey R. Immelt - Executive Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Member of Public Responsibilities Committee

Keith S. Sherin - Vice Chairman and Chief Financial Officer

Unknown Speaker -


Jeffrey R. Immelt

Good morning. Take your seats, please. Welcome to GE's 2012 Annual Meeting. I'm Jeff Immelt, the Chairman of the Board. Please do not disrupt the meeting, sir. Please do not disrupt the meeting or we will ask you to leave. Mr. Taylor, could you please escort this man out, please? Could you please escort this man out, please?

Here with me today are Keith Sherin, GE's Vice Chairman and Chief Financial Officer; and Brackett Denniston, our General Counsel.

Each year, we have our annual meeting at a GE town that epitomizes what the company is about. This year, it's Detroit, and we're very proud to be here. Please do not disrupt the meeting or we will ask you to leave. Mr. Taylor, could you please ask these people to leave the meeting? Would you please ask these people to leave the meeting?

A few years ago, when GE was deciding where to open a new state-of-the-art information technology and research development facility, the Detroit area may have seemed like the most obvious choice. The recession hit Michigan particularly hard -- please show these people out. Thank you. I just want -- with that as a backdrop, I just want everybody in this room to know we like Detroit, okay? We are happy we're here. We're happy we brought jobs here, and we want you to know how committed we are to this region. And I want you to know that we are proud to be in Detroit today. So I want you to know that from the outset.
