Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Second Quarter 2012 Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. and Alliance Holdings GP Earnings Conference Call. My name is Erica, and I'll be your coordinator for today. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the presentation over to your host for today's call, Mr. Brian Cantrell, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Please proceed.
Brian L. Cantrell
Thank you, Erica and welcome, everyone. Earlier this morning, we released 2012 second quarter earnings for both Alliance Resource Partners, or ARLP, and Alliance Holdings GP, or AHGP, and we'll now discuss those results, as well as our outlook for the remainder of this year. Following our prepared remarks, we'll open the call to your questions.
Before beginning, we'll start with a few customary reminders. First, since AHGP's only assets are its ownership interest in ARLP, our comments for today will be directed to ARLP's results and outlook, unless otherwise noted. In addition, please be aware that some of our remarks may include forward-looking statements that are subject to a variety of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, which are contained in our filings from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and are also reflected in today's press releases from the partnerships.
