Greetings, and welcome to the Southwestern Energy First Quarter 2012 Earnings Teleconference Call. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.
It is now my pleasure to introduce your host, Mr. Steve Mueller, President and CEO. Thank you. Mr. Mueller, you may begin.
Steven L. Mueller
Thank you. And good morning, and thank you for joining us. With me today are Bill Way, our Chief Operating Officer; Greg Kerley, our Chief Financial Officer; Jeff Sherrick, Senior VP of Corporate Development; and Brad Sylvester, our VP of Investor Relations.
If you've not received a copy of yesterday's press release regarding our first quarter 2012 results, you can find a copy on our website at www.swn.com. Also, I'd like to point out that many of the comments during this teleconference are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties affecting outcomes, many of which are beyond our control and are discussed in more detail in the risk factors and the forward-looking statement sections of our annual and quarterly filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although we believe the expectations expressed are based on reasonable assumptions, they are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results or developments may differ materially.
