Gene Shields

Thank you, Sherry. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Kraton Performance Polymers' Second Quarter 2012 earnings call. With me on the call this morning are Kevin Fogarty, our President and Chief Executive Officer, and Steve Tremblay, our Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Before we review results for the second quarter 2012, I want to focus your attention to the disclaimers on forward-looking information and the use of non-GAAP measures, included in our presentation this and in yesterday's earnings press release.

During our call this morning, we may make certain comments that are not statements of historical fact and thus constitute forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned that there are risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause Kraton's actual performance to be significantly different from expectations stated or implied by any comments that we make today.
