Robert B. LewisThank you, Tony. Good morning, everybody. As Tony highlighted, the second quarter of 2012 was challenging as we delivered adjusted earnings per share at the low end of our expectations. The biggest impact was in our metal container business where economic weakness in Europe led to a weaker demand in certain categories, particularly general line cans and the hot dry growing conditions led to a slower start to the pack and a less favorable mix of products sold, largely due to the timing of shipments.
