Good day, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Second Quarter 2012 Nu Skin Enterprises Conference Call. My name is Shaun and I’ll be your operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen only mode. Later we will conduct a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder this conference is being recorded for replay purposes. I would like to now hand the call over to Mr. Scott Pond, Director Investor Relations. Please proceed.
Thank you. Good afternoon everybody. We appreciate you’re listening in today. With us in the room are Truman Hunt, President and Chief Executive Officer; Ritch Wood, Chief Financial Officer; and Joe Chang, Chief Scientific Officer. Just a reminder, during the call today, the comments may be made that include forward-looking statements. These statements involve risks and uncertainties and actual results may differ from those discussed or anticipated. We encourage you to refer to today’s earnings release and our SEC filings for a complete discussion of these risks.
Also during the call certain financial numbers may be discussed that differ from comparable numbers obtained in our financial statements. We believe these non-GAAP financial numbers assist management and investors in evaluating and comparing period-to-period results in a more meaningful and consistent manner.
