Good day, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for standing by. Welcome to the Rovi Corporation Second Quarter Earnings Conference Call. [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. Chris Keller, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead, sir.
Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, and thank you for joining us today. I'm joined today by Tom Carson, our President and CEO; and Peter Halt, our Chief Financial Officer.
Before we discuss our second quarter results, which were released earlier today, I would like to start with some housekeeping items. First, I would like to remind you that all statements made during our conference call that are not statements of historical fact, including, but not limited to, statements regarding the company's forecasts of future revenues, expenses and earnings, as well as business strategies and product plans, constitute forward-looking statements, and are made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results could vary materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are described in our Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2012, and other filings with the SEC that are filed from time to time.
