Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by and welcome to the Rockwood Holdings 2012 Second Quarter Conference Call. At this time, all lines are in a listen-only mode.

I’ll now turn the conference over to Tim McKenna, Vice President Investor Relations. Please go ahead, sir.

Timothy McKenna

Thank you, Kathy. Good morning and welcome to Rockwood’s second quarter earnings Conference Call. Seifi Ghasemi, our Chairman and Chief Executive; and Bob Zatta, our Chief Financial Officer will give the formal presentation. After that, we’ll have the Q&A session. You can follow our slides on our website at www.rocksp.com.

Before the call begins, I’ll read a short statement. The conference call may contain certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, concerning the business operations and financial conditions of Rockwood Holdings and its subsidiaries. Although Rockwood believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, there can be no assurance that its expectations will be realized.
