Good morning. My name is Alicia, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I’d like to welcome everyone to the Tupperware Brands Corporation Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers’ remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions)
Thank you. I would now like to turn the conference over to Mr. Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO of Tupperware Brands. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you, Alicia, and good morning, everybody. I’m in Sao Paulo, Brazil with 4,000 numbers of our sales was doing a leadership workshop and some press release. Since Mike, our CFO; and Teresa Burchfield, Head of Investor Relations, they are there at our Orlando headquarters and should there be any kind of problem on my phone line, as there was on the last call, when I think I was in Africa. Mike is fully capable of finishing this up.
As always you guys know the -- know the drill on forward-looking statements, so I refer you to that position.
