Presentation

Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Cognex Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.

I would now like to introduce your host for today, Mr. Richard Morin, Chief Financial Officer. Sir, please go ahead.

Richard A. Morin

Thank you, and good evening, everyone.

Earlier tonight, we issued a press release announcing Cognex's earnings for the second quarter of 2012, and we also filed our quarterly report on Form 10-Q. For those of you who have not yet seen these materials, both are available on our website at www.cognex.com. They contain highly detailed information about our financial results.

During tonight's call, we may use a non-GAAP financial measure if we believe it is useful to investors or if we believe it will help investors better understand our results or business trends. For your reference, you can see the company's income statement as reported under GAAP in Exhibit 1 of the earnings press release and a reconciliation of certain items in the income statement from GAAP to non-GAAP in Exhibit 2.
