Presentation

Operator

Good morning. My name is Tracy, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the EarthLink Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] I will now turn the conference over to Louis Alterman, Vice President of Finance for EarthLink. Please go ahead, sir.

Louis Alterman

Thanks, and welcome to our call. During today's call, we will refer to earnings slides that are available for you to view in the Investor Relations section of our website, earthlink.net. Following our comments, there will be an opportunity for questions.

Before we continue, I would like to point out that certain statements contained in our earnings release and on this conference call are forward-looking statements, rather than historical facts, that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described. With respect to such forward-looking statements, the company seeks the protections afforded by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

These risks include a variety of factors including competitive developments, the risk factors listed in the company's SEC reports and public releases. Those lists are intended to identify certain principal factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. They are not intended to represent a complete list of all risks and uncertainties inherent to the company's business.
