Presentation

Operator

Good morning, and welcome to Tenneco's Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Release Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] Today's conference is being recorded. If you have any objections, please disconnect at this time. I would now like to turn the call over to Ms. Linae Golla, Executive Director, Investor Relations. Thank you. You may begin.

Linae Golla

Good morning. Earlier this morning, we issued our earnings release and related financial information. In just a bit, I will turn the call over to Gregg Sherrill, Tenneco's Chairman and CEO; Hari Nair, our Chief Operating Officer; and Ken Trammell, our Chief Financial Officer.

They will spend the first half of the call taking you through a detailed explanation of our second quarter performance. Slides related to our prepared comments are available on the Investors section of our website at www.tenneco.com. We will then open up the call for questions. The conference operator will explain the process for asking a question at that time.
