Katherine Nash

Thank you and good morning everyone. Welcome to Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia's second quarter 2012 earnings conference call.

Before we begin, let me remind you that discussions will contain forward-looking statements, which are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as amended. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks and uncertainties which are difficult to predict. Actual future results and trends may differ materially from what is forecast in forward-looking statements, due to a variety of factors, many of which are described in our SEC filings. Also, non-GAAP numbers are reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to our press release, which appears on our website at marthastewart.com.
