Operator

Good day and welcome to the Unum Group's Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Results Conference Call. This call is being recorded. At this time, for opening remarks and introductions, I would like to turn the call over to the Senior Vice President of Investor Relations, Mr. Tom White. Please go ahead, sir.

Thomas White

Great. Thank you, operator. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the Second Quarter 2012 Conference Call for Unum. Our remarks this morning will include forward-looking statements, which are statements that are not of current or historical fact. As a result, actual results might differ materially from results suggested by these forward-looking statements. Information concerning factors that could cause the results to differ appears in our filings with the SEC and are also located in the section titled Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Risk Factors on our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, as well as our subsequently filed Form 10-Q. Our SEC filings can be found in the Investors section of our website at www.unum.com.
