Mr. Charlie Stack, Chief Investor Relations Officer, you may begin.
Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to the Hanesbrands Quarterly Investor Conference Call and webcast. We are pleased to be here today to provide an update on our progress after the second quarter of 2012. Hopefully everyone has had a chance to review the news release we issued earlier today. The news release and the audio replay of the webcast of this call can be found in the Investors section of our Hanesbrands.com website.
I want to remind everyone that we may make forward-looking statements on the call today either in our prepared remarks or in the associated question-and-answer session. These statements are based on current expectations and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially. These risks are detailed in our various filings with the SEC such as our most recent Forms 10-K and 10-Q and may be found on our website and in our news releases and other communications. The company does not undertake to update or revise any forward-looking statements which speak only to the time at which they are made.
