As shown on the disclaimer on slide two, please keep in mind that some of the items we will discuss this morning will include statements that may be considered forward-looking. And therefore are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause our actual results in future periods to differ materially from forecasted results.
Those risks and uncertainties include among other things, general economic conditions, the availability of government funding for our company's services, and other factors discussed in today's release and set forth under the forward-looking statements disclaimer included in the fiscal 2013 first quarter earnings' release in our SEC filings. We caution you not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statement that we may make today. And remind you that we assume no obligation to update or revise the information discussed on this call.
During today's call, we will also discuss some non-GAAP financial measures. And other metrics, which we believe provide useful information for investors. We include an explanation of adjustments and other reconciliations of our non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures in our fiscal 2013 first quarter slides.
It is now my pleasure to turn over to our CEO, Ralph Shrader, and he will start on slide three.Ralph Shrader
Thank you, Curt. And good morning and thank you all for joining us today. Here today on the conference table in front of me is a crystal ball. I used it in a speech I gave some 12 years ago at the height of the dot.com, which was entitled, No Crystal Ball Decision Making in E-Time. With the so called fiscal cliff looming for our nation and the questions that Sam, Curt, and I keep getting about whether sequestration is going to happen, I thought it would be useful to have it on hand to consult for this morning's Q&A session. But all kidding aside, I'm not going to try to predict the course of political or economic events. And that’s the key reason our top line guidance does not extend beyond September 30th at this point.
