James L. Herbert
Thank you, Christine, and good morning and welcome to our regular quarterly conference call for investors and analysts. As Christine said, today we'll be reporting to you the results of our fourth quarter, which ended on May 31 and also the full 2012 fiscal year. To start, I'd remind you that some of the statements that are made here today could be termed as forward-looking statements and these forward-looking statements, of course, are subject to certain risks and uncertainties. The actual results, it may differ from those that we discuss here today. The risks that are associated with our business are covered in part in the company's Form 10-K that's filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and our new Form 10-K for the 2012 fiscal year will be filed with the SEC and available approximately on July 30. In addition to those of you joining us today by live telephone conference, I'd also welcome those who may be joining by simulcast on the Worldwide Web. These comments, along with some exhibits, will be available on the web for approximately 90 days. Following our prepared comments this morning, we'll entertain questions from participants who are joined via this live telephone conference. And I'm joined today by Lon Bohannon, Neogen's President; and Steve Quinlan, our Chief Financial Officer.
