Good afternoon and thanks for joining us in this special conference call to discuss Landec's acquisition of GreenLine Foods. I have with me today Greg Skinner, our Chief Financial Officer and Ron Midyett, the CEO of Apio.
During today’s call, we may make forward-looking statements that involve certain risk and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. These risks are outlined in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company's Form 10-K for fiscal year 2011.
This morning, we announced the acquisition of GreenLine Foods from The Riverside Company, a global private equity firm. We are very excited about the acquisition of GreenLine, as it is a very good fit with our Apio value-added fresh-cut vegetable business. We see significant operational synergies from this acquisition.
