Good day, everyone, welcome to the Diebold, Incorporated second quarter financial results conference call. Today's call is being recorded. At this time for opening remarks and introductions, I would like to turn the call over to Vice President and Chief Communications Officer, Mr. John Kristoff. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you, (Deanna). Good morning, and thank you for joining us for Diebold's second quarter conference call. Joining me today are Tom Swidarski, President and CEO, and Brad Richardson, Executive Vice President and CFO.
Just a few notes before we get started, in addition to an earnings release, we've provided a supplementary presentation on the investor page of our website. Tom and Brad will be walking through this presentation as part of their comments today and we encourage you to follow along.
Before we discuss our results, as in past calls, it's important to note that we have restructuring, non-routine expenses, and impairment charges in our financials. We believe that excluding these items gives an indication of the company's baseline operational performance.
As a result, many of the remarks this morning will focus on non-GAAP information. For a reconciliation for our GAAP to non-GAAP numbers, please refer to the supplemental material at the end of the presentation.
