Good day, everyone and welcome to the Roper Industries’ Second Quarter 2012 Financial Earnings Conference Call. Today’s conference is being recorded. I would now like to turn the conference over to John Humphrey, Chief Financial Officer. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you and thank you all for joining us this morning as we discuss the results of our second quarter. Joining me this morning is Brian Jellison, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer; and Paul Soni, Vice President and Controller; Jason Conley, Head of Planning and Investor Relations for us.
Earlier this morning, we issued a press release announcing our financial results. The press release also includes replay information for today’s call. We prepared slides to accompany today’s call, which are available through the webcast and also available on our website at www.roperind.com.
Now, if you turn to slide two, we begin with our updated Safe Harbor statement. During the course of today’s call, we will be making forward-looking statements, which are subject to the risks and uncertainties as described on this page and as further detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. You should listen to today’s call in the context of that information.
