Good morning. My name is Theresa, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to Omnicare's First Quarter 2012 Earnings Call. [Operator Instructions] Thank you. I would now like to turn the call over to Patrick Lee, Omnicare's Vice President of Investor Relations. Mr. Lee, you may begin your conference.
Thanks, Theresa. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and thank you for joining us today. With me on the call are John Figueroa, Chief Executive Officer; and John Workman, President and Chief Financial Officer.
Before we begin, let me remind you that during this call, we will make remarks that constitute forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ as a result of a variety of factors, including those identified in our earnings release and in our various filings with the SEC. You are also cautioned that any forward-looking statements reflect management's current views only, and that the company undertakes no obligation to revise or update such statements in the future. For simplicity's sake and to focus on what we believe are the best indicators of our operating performance, we will discuss results from continuing operations, and we'll also exclude special items for all periods in our discussion today.
