Now let me quickly recap this quarter's results. Revenue in the quarter of $4.5 billion increased 4% year-over-year, including a 4 percentage point decline related to foreign currency. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates were more of a headwind than we ever duly anticipated and cost us about 1 percentage point of revenue growth compared to our previous expectations. Organic revenue grew 5%. Earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to Tyco common shareholder was $0.54 and included charges of $0.47 related to special items. Earnings per share from continuing operations before special items was $1.01.Now let me turn the call over to Ed for some opening comments.
