Operator

Good day ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Q2 2012 Furniture Brands Earnings Conference Call. My name is Sonia and I will be your operator for today. At this time all participants are in listen-only mode. We will conduct the question-and-answer session towards the end of this conference. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder this call is being recorded for replay purposes.

I’d like to turn the call over to Mr. Rick Isaak, Chief Accounting Officer. Please proceed sir.

Rick Isaak

Thank you. Good morning everyone and thanks for joining us today. With me this morning is Ralph Scozzafava, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; and Vance Johnston, our Chief Financial Officer.

I want to take a moment to read the Safe Harbor statement before I hand it over to Vance to go over our financial results for the second quarter. Ralph will then follow with the discussion of the highlights for the quarter.

I need to remind you that certain comments made during this call may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Our actual results and future financial conditions may differ materially from those expressed in any such forward-looking statements as a result of many factors that maybe outside of our control.
