Good day, and welcome to the CNA Financial Corporation's First Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. Today's conference is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the conference over to Ms. Marie Hotza of Investor Relations. Please go ahead.
Thank you, Roxanne. Good morning, and welcome to CNA's discussion of our first quarter 2012 financial results. With us on this morning's call are Tom Motamed, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; and Craig Mense, our Chief Financial Officer. Following Tom's and Craig's remarks about the quarterly results, we will open it up for your questions.
Before turning it over to Tom, I would like to advise everyone that during this call, there may be forward-looking statements made and references to non-GAAP financial measures. Any forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from the statements made during this call.
Information concerning those risks is contained in the earnings release and in CNA's most recent 10-K and 10-Q on file with the SEC. In addition, the forward-looking statements speak only as of today, Monday, April 30, 2012. CNA expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements made during this call.
