Lisa M. Defrancesco

Thank you, Cassandra, and good morning, everyone. I'd like to welcome you to the Watson's Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. Earlier this morning, Watson issued a press release reporting its earnings for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. The press release will be available on our website at www.watson.com. Additionally, we are conducting a live webcast of this call, which will also be available on our website after its conclusion.

With us on today's call are Paul Bisaro, our President and CEO, who will provide an overview of the second quarter results; Todd Joyce, our Global Chief Financial Officer, who will then provide additional details on the performance of our business segments, as well as our consolidated financial results for the quarter. Paul will conclude our presentation with our updated outlook for 2012. We'll then open up the call for questions and answers.

Also on the call and available during the Q&A are Siggi Olafsson, President of Global Generics; Fred Wilkinson, President of Global Brands and Biosimilars; Bob Stewart, President of Global Operations; Al Paonessa, President our Anda Distribution Division; and David Buchen, our Global Chief Legal Officer.
