I would now like to turn the conference call over to Mr. Mike Fries, President and CEO of Liberty Global. Please go ahead, sir.
Michael T. Fries
Thank you, and good morning or good afternoon everybody. As usual we have a relatively large group on our call from various time zones. But I’m going to introduce Charlie Bracken and Bernie Dvorak of course our EVPs and co-CFOs. Diederik Karsten, is on, who is our EVP and Head of European Operations; Balan Nair, on a cell phone somewhere in the world, our EVP and Chief Technology Officer; Bryan Hall, EVP General Counsel, and of course we’ve got Rick Westerman, on as well from our IR and Communications Group. So we’re going to do the Safe Harbor and we’ll jump right into it.
OperatorThank you. Page 2 of the slides detail the company’s Safe Harbor statements regarding forward-looking statements. Today’s presentation may include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including the company’s expectations with respect to its outlook for 2012; and future growth prospects and other information and statements that are not historical facts. These forward-looking statements involve certain risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these statements.These risks include those detailed from time-to-time in Liberty Global’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its most recently filed Forms 10-K and 10-Q. Liberty Global disclaims any obligation to update any of these forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectation or in the conditions on which any such statement is based.I would now like to turn the call back over to Mr. Mike Fries.Michael T. FriesThanks. So as she said, we are going to be working of the slides today. And as I usually do, I’m going to kick it off for some highlights on slide 4. I want to say upfront, our remarks are probably a bit longer than they usually are, but pretty much everything we want to tell you or we want you to take away from this call was right here on this slide.
