Before we begin the commentary, I would like to remind you that statements made during today's conference call and webcast, which are not historical facts, might be considered forward-looking statements. Such statements may include comments regarding future financial results and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond Covance's control. Actual results could differ materially from such statements due to a variety of facts, including the ones outlined in our SEC filings. Certain of the 2011 financial measures we will discuss on this call are non-GAAP measures, which exclude the effects of events outside of our normal operations, such as items associated with our previous restructuring. We believe that providing these measures helps investors gain a more complete understanding of our results and is consistent with how management views our financial results. For a reconciliation of GAAP to pro forma results, please refer to supplemental schedules included in our press release issued last night.Now I will turn it over to Bill for a review of our financial performance, which begins on Page 4 of the slide show.
