Good day ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Q1 2012 Flower Foods Earnings conference call. My name is Andrea and I will be your operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will conduct a question and answer session toward the end of the conference. [Operator instructions] As a reminder, this call is being recorded for replay purposes.
I would like to turn the call over to Ms. Marta Turner, Vice President of Corporate Relations.
Thank you, Andrea, and good morning everyone. Our first quarter results were of course released this morning and the 10-Q was also filed, so you’ll find those if you need a copy. During the call we’re going to be using a PowerPoint presentation, and of course you can access those on the speaker, the webcast listen page of our website.
Before we get started, I must remind you that our presentation today may include forward-looking statements about our Company’s performance. While we believe our statements to be reasonable, those statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. In addition to the matters we’ll discuss during the call, important factors about Flowers Foods’ business are detailed more fully in our SEC filings.
