Hello, and welcome to the Bladex Conference Call. We now have our speakers in conference. As a reminder, today's call is being recorded. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the conference over to Melanie Carpenter. Ms. Carpenter, please begin.
Thank you, Lindsey. Hello, everyone. Welcome to Bladex' Second Quarter 2012 Conference Call on this, the 19th of July of 2012. This call is for investors and analysts only. If you're members of media, you're invited to listen only.
Joining us today are Mr. Jaime Rivera, in what I'm sad to say is his last quarterly conference call as CEO of the bank. But we also happily welcome Mr. Rubens Amaral, longtime Chief Commercial Officer, who you all know well and has been named his replacement effective August 1.
Also with us is Mr. Christopher Schech, Chief Financial Officer of the bank. Their comments will be based on the earnings release issued yesterday. A copy of the long version is available on bladex.com, which was recently redesigned, so we invite you to go visit the website for some new additions.
