Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for standing by. Welcome to the Patterson Companies Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2012 Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] This conference is being recorded today, May 24, 2012. And I would now like to turn the conference over to Scott Anderson, President and CEO. Please go ahead.

Scott P. Anderson

Thank you, Douglas. Good morning, and thanks for taking time to participate in our fourth quarter earnings conference call. Joining me today is Steve Armstrong, our Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, who will review some highlights of our fourth quarter performance, following my opening remarks.

Since Regulation FD prohibits us from providing investors with any earnings guidance unless we release that information simultaneously, we provided financial guidance for fiscal 2013 in our press release earlier this morning. This guidance is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause Patterson's actual results to vary from our forecast. These risks and uncertainties are discussed in detail in our annual report on Form 10-K and our other SEC filings, and we urge you to review this material.
