Greetings and welcome to the Build-A-Bear Workshop First Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results Conference Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. A brief question-and-answer session will follow the formal presentation. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.
It is now my pleasure to introduce your host, Ms. Allison Malkin of ICR. Thank you. Ms. Malkin, you may begin.
Good morning. Thank you for joining us. With me today are Maxine Clark, Chairman and Chief Executive Bear; and Tina Klocke, Chief Operations and Financial Bear.
Before I turn the call over to management, I want to remind members of the media, who may be on our call today, to contact us after this conference call with your questions. We ask that you limit your questions to one question and one follow-up. This way, we can get to everyone’s questions during this one-hour call. Feel free to re-queue if you have further questions.
Please note that our call is being recorded and broadcast live via the Internet. The earnings release is available on the Investor Relations portion on our corporate website and a replay of both our call and webcast will be available later today on the IR site.
