Susie Lisa

Thanks you, good morning everyone and welcome to Abiomed's first quarter fiscal 2013 earnings conference call. I am Susie Lisa, Senior Director of Investor Relations and Corporate Development for Abiomed and I am here with Mike Minogue, Abiomed's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer; and Bob Bowen, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

The format for today's call will be as follows. First, Mike will discuss strategic highlights from the quarter against the framework of our key operational and strategic objectives for fiscal 2013. Bob will then review the financial results for the quarter and provide an update on guidance for the year. We will then open the call to your questions.

Before turning the call over to Mike, I want to remind you that during the course of today's conference and the question-and-answer session that follows, we may make projections or other forward looking statements that are subject to the Safe Harbor provisions of securities laws regarding future events or the financial performance of the company.
