Thank you, Michelle. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to TESCO's Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. I'm Julio Quintana, TESCO's President and CEO, and I'll be hosting the call. Bob Kayl, our Chief Financial Officer, is with me on the call. I'll begin with some general comments on the quarter, then Bob will give you an overview of our financial results. Following Bob's remarks, I'll return and provide an update on our business and plans for the future.
Before I begin, it is important to note that during the course of this call, Bob and I will make forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995 and Canadian securities legislation. These statements are based on current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to vary from those anticipated. These risks and uncertainties have been and are more fully described in our annual reports and quarterly reports filed with the SEC and with Securities regulatory authorities in Canada. You should not place any undue reliance on these forward-looking statements made in the conference call, nor do we intend to update these forward-looking statements.
