Good day ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Q1 2012 Results conference call. Today’s conference is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the conference over to Mr. Jan Carlson, CEO. Please go ahead.

Jan Carlson

Thank you, Caroline. Welcome everyone to this earnings presentation. Here in Stockholm, we have as usual our CFO, Mats Wallin, and our VP Corporate Communications, Mats Odman, and myself, Jan Carlson, President and Chief Executive Officer. We will open up today’s earnings call with a quick review of our first quarter results, including an overview of general business conditions, then we will focus on the outlook and how we see our business improving throughout the remainder of 2012. At the conclusion of this presentation, we will remain available to respond to your questions.

At this time, we have had some problems with our website, so I turn over to Mats to give us some guidance on how to get the presentation.

Mats Odman

Yes, I’m afraid that the direct link that we have on our website typically for downloading the presentation, we have had some problems. I don’t know if they’ve managed to get it fixed by now, but if they haven’t you should be worried because there is another way that you can get the slides downloaded. You go to our website and on the first page there you click on News, Calendar, and when that page opens you go to Live Webcast Slideshow and log in. Then, you will be able to follow the slide presentation there and also download the slides from that page, so it should still work. Thank you.
