Good afternoon. My name is Dianne, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the THQ Inc. Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the call over to Lisa Mueller, Director of Investor Relations. You may begin your conference.

Lisa Mueller

Thank you, and good afternoon, everyone. On today's call, we will make forward-looking statements regarding our current expectations, estimates and projections about the business of THQ, including statements regarding our expectations for the second quarter ending September 30, 2012, and the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.

These statements are based upon management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by management and are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from today's forward-looking statements due to the discussion of trends, risk factors and other cautionary statements that are described in our March 31, 2012, Form 10-K and subsequent filings with the SEC. A copy of these filings may be obtained from our website. Unless otherwise required by law, THQ disclaims any obligation to update its view on any such risks or uncertainties after the date these statements are made.
