Good morning, and welcome to DNB's 2012 First Quarter Teleconference. This conference is being recorded at the request of D&B. If you have any objections, you may disconnect at this time. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the call over to Ms. Kathy Guinnessey, Leader, Treasury and Investor Relations. Ms. Guinnessey, you may begin.
Thank you. Good morning, everyone, and thank you for joining us today. With me on this call this morning are Sara Mathew, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; and Rich Veldran, our Chief Financial Officer. In addition, Byron Vielehr, our President of North America; and Manny Conti, our President of International and Chief Administrative Officer, will be available to handle any questions you have.
To help our analysts and investors understand how we view the business, our remarks this morning will include forward-looking statements. Our Form 10-K and 10-Q filings, as well as the earnings release we issued yesterday, highlight a number of important risk factors that could cause our actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements. These documents are available on the Investor Relations section of our website, and we encourage you to review this material. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.
