Good day, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for standing by. Welcome to the Quantum Corporation First Quarter 2013 Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] This conference is being recorded today, Tuesday, July 31, 2012. I would now like to turn the conference over to Shawn Hall, General Counsel. Please go ahead.

Shawn D. Hall

Thank you, and good afternoon, and welcome. Here with me today are, Jon Gacek our CEO; and our CFO, Linda Breard. The webcast of this call, our earnings release and a quantitative reconciliation of any GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures discussed today can be accessed at the Investor Relations section of our website at www.quantum.com and will be archived for one year.

During the course of today's discussion, we will make forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The forward-looking statements include statements regarding our business strategy, opportunities and priorities, anticipated product launches and plans, and future financial performance. We'd like to caution you that our statements are based on current expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. We refer you to the risk factors and cautionary language contained in today's press release, as well as to our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time, including our most recent 10-K filed on June 14, 2012. These risk factors are incorporated by reference into today's discussion, and we make -- undertake no obligation to update them in the future. With that, I'll turn the call over to Jon Gacek.
