Good day, everyone. And welcome to the Guess? First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Earnings Conference Call. On the call are Michael Prince, Chief Operating Officer; Dennis Secor, Chief Financial Officer; and Russell Bowers, Chief Financial Officer, North American Retail.
During today’s call, the company will be making forward-looking statements, including comments regarding future plans and financial outlook. The company’s actual results may differ materially from current expectations based on risk factors included in the company’s quarterly, annual and current reports filed with the SEC, including economic conditions, business strategies, results of litigation, tax and other similar proceedings and currency fluctuations.
Now, I would like to turn the call over to Michael Prince. Please proceed.
Thank you and good afternoon. Before I begin our review, those of you on our last quarterly call will remember that Paul is working on our global three-day conference of licensees and partners that kicks off here in LA tomorrow. This is celebration to Guess? brand in our 30-year history with well over 1,000 people in attendance.
