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.Please note that today’s call is copyrighted material of Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and cannot be rebroadcast without the company’s expressed written consent.I’d also like to remind you that during the course of this call, management will make projections or other forward-looking remarks regarding future events or the future financial performance of the company.
