Steve English

Thank you, Christie and good morning everyone and welcome to our second quarter 2012 earnings conference call. Today, I'm joined by our Chairman, President and CEO Bob Restrepo; Chief Investment Officer, Scott Jones; and our Chief Actuarial Officer, Matt Mrozek.

Today's call will include prepared remarks by our CEO, Bob Restrepo and me, after which, we will open the lines for questions.

Please note our comments today may include forward-looking statements, which by their nature, involve a number of risk factors and uncertainties which may affect future financial performance. Such risk factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in our projections or forward-looking statements. These types of factors are discussed at the end of our press release as well as in our annual and quarterly filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission to which I refer you.

A financial packet containing reconciliations of certain non-GAAP measures, along with supplemental financial information was distributed to registered participants prior to this call and made available to all interested parties on our website www.stateauto.com under the investors section as an attachment to the press release.
