Benson Smith - Chairman, President & CEO
Teleflex to present. Benson Smith, the company's CEO is here speaking on behalf of the company. We will have a 15-20 minute presentation followed by Q&A right here. So, thanks very much for joining us.
Thanks [Bob] and good afternoon everyone. As Bob mentioned, I am going to run through about 15 or 20 minutes of prepared remarks. The slide deck is available online or a manual copy.
Just to get started, I do want to mention that I will be making some forward-looking statements. The future can be very different than what we think is going to look like. So with that, we will get in to what we’re going to cover this afternoon.
Let me go through a brief company overview. Teleflex has changed a lot in just the last few years, making a transition from an industrial conglomerate to a pure-play medical device company. I want to give you a good idea in terms of where we are today, talk a little bit about our strategic objectives. This is sort of a five-year look we have in terms of the goals we set out for ourselves, give you some financial information about full-year of 2011 and our first quarter 2012, which we just announced a couple of weeks ago and then a brief summary and then open it up to questions and answers.
