Thank you, Augusta. Good morning, and welcome to MTS Systems' Second Fiscal 2012 Second Quarter Investor Teleconference. Joining me on the call today is Bill Murray, interim Chief Executive Officer; and Dave Anderson, Chairman of the Board. I want to remind you that statements made today which are not historical facts should be considered forward-looking statements as defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Future results may differ materially from these statements depending upon risks, some of which are beyond management's control. A list of such risks can be found on the company's latest SEC forms 10-Q and 10-K. The company disclaims any obligation to revise forward-looking statements made today based on future events. This presentation may also include reference to financial measures, which are not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles or GAAP. These measures may be used by management to compare the operating performance of the company over time. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures.
