Good day ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Nordson Corporation webcast for the second quarter fiscal 2012. At this time all participants are in a listen-only mode. Later, we will conduct a question-and-answer session and instructions will be given at that time. (Operator Instructions).
I would now like to turn the conference over to your host, Mr. Jim Jaye, Director of Communications and Investor Relations. Please go ahead.
Thank you, Alley. This is Jim Jaye and I’m here with Mike Hilton, our President and Chief Executive Officer and Greg Thaxton, our Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. We’d like to welcome you to our conference call today, Tuesday, May 22, 2012 on Nordson’s second quarter 2012 results.
