Chris Keller

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Rovi Corporation's First Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. I'm Chris Keller, and I'm joined today by Tom Carson, our President and CEO; James Budge, our CFO and COO; Peter Halt, our SVP of Finance and Chief Accounting Officer.

Before we discuss our results, which were released earlier today, I would like to start with some housekeeping items.

First, I would like to remind you that all statements made during our conference call that are not statements of historical fact, including, but not limited to, statements regarding the company's forecast of future revenues, expenses and earnings, as well as business strategies and product plans constitute forward-looking statement and are made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results could vary materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are described in our Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012, and other filings with the SEC that are filed from time to time.
