Michael A. Mussallem

Welcome, good morning everyone. This is the 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders for Edwards Lifesciences. I am Mike Mussallem, I’m the Chairman and CEO, and I’m going to be chairing this meeting. I’d now like to call the meeting for order. I’m really pleased to welcome you here today, and I want to say how much we appreciate your continued support of Edwards Lifesciences.

As you may have seen, 2011 was a very good year for our company; we delivered another year of strong performance, a number of significant achievements. It was also a big year of investment for us, it’s a lot into R&D, we’ve done a lot into our organization in preparing for 2012 and beyond. And even with all that delivered some real earnings results.

We also continue to support the communities in which we live and work. We support cardiovascular disease, research and education and community causes through our Edwards Lifesciences charitable fund. We provided significantly more grants from the fund in 2011 than we’ve had in the past, we now in fact able to 50 countries. The activities are explained in our annual philanthropy report and if you haven’t seen that there is copies outside, I encourage you to take a look at it, it’s also on our website.
