Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Revlon’s First Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. At the request of Revlon, today’s conference call is being recorded, if you have any objections you may disconnect at this time. At the conclusion of today’s presentation, we will open the call for questions. (Operator Instructions) I would now like to turn the call over to Ms. Elise Garofalo, Revlon’s Senior Vice President, Treasurer and Investor Relations. You may now begin, Ma’am.
Thank you, Dorris. Good morning, everyone, and thanks for joining today’s call. Earlier today, we released our results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012. If you’ve not already received a copy of the earnings release, you can obtain one on our website at revloninc.com.
On the call with me this morning are Alan Ennis, Revlon’s President and Chief Executive Officer; Chris Elshaw, Chief Operating Officer; and Steven Berns, Chief Financial Officer. Before I turn the call over to Alan, I’d like to remind everyone of a few things. First, our discussion this morning might include forward-looking statements, which are subject to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. Information on factors that could affect the company’s results from time-to-time and cause them to differ materially from such forward-looking statements is set forth in the company’s filings with the SEC, including our 2011 Form 10-K and our 2012 first quarter Form 10-Q, which we filed earlier this morning.
