Good day, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for standing by. Welcome to the FEI Second Quarter Earnings Conference Call. During today's presentation, all participants will be in a listen-only mode. Following the presentation, the conference will be open for questions. (Operator Instructions). This conference is being recorded today, Thursday August 2, 2012.
I would now like to turn the conference over to our host, Mr. Fletcher Chamberlin. Please go ahead.
Thank you, Kelly. Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. As the operator said, I am Fletcher Chamberlin and FEI's Treasurer and Communications Director. With me today at our headquarters in Oregon are, Don Kania, our President and CEO; and Ray Link, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
We have again posted some slides on the Events & Presentations section of the Investor Relations part of our website, fei.com. We will refer to these slides during today's call. We hope having these slides will make it easier for you to listen to our comments rather than just focusing on getting the numbers recorded.
