Changyou.com Limited Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Forward-looking statements involve inherent risk and uncertainty. The company cautions that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Potential risk and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the current global financial and credit market crisis and its potential impact on China's economy; the uncertain regulatory landscape in the People's Republic of China; fluctuations in Changyou's quarterly operating results; Changyou's historical and possible future losses and limited operating history; and the company's reliance on Tian Long Ba Bu as its major revenue source. Further information regarding these and other risks is included in Changyou's annual report on Form 20-F filed on February 28, 2012, and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Now let me turn the call over to our CFO, Mr. Alex Ho. Alex?
