Thank you and good afternoon everyone. Welcome to the Nanometrics second quarter 2012 financial results conference call.

Shortly, Tim will provide a recap of the second quarter and our perspective looking forward. Then, Ron will discuss our financial results for the second quarter and third quarter outlook. After which we will open up the call for Q&A.

Today’s conference call contains certain forward-looking statements including, but not limited to financial performance and results including revenue, margins, profitability, and earnings per share, customer concentration, tax rates, and product adoption.

Although Nanometrics believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, actual results could differ materially from expectations due to a variety of factors including economic conditions, changes in levels of industry spending, the adoption and competitiveness of our products, shift and timing of orders or product shipments, changes in product mix, our ability to successfully identify, complete, and integrate acquisitions to realize operating efficiencies and to achieve reduced tax, and the additional risk factors and cautionary statements set forth in the company’s Form 10-K on file for fiscal year 2011 as well as other periodic reports filed with the SEC from time-to-time. Nanometrics disclaims any obligation to update information contained in any forward-looking statements.
