In addition to prepared remarks, we have posted supplementary slides related to this call on our IR website at ir.a123systems.com under events and presentations.

Before we begin the call, please allow me to read the following statement to inform you of certain Safe Harbor provisions under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. During the course of this conference call, we will discuss our business outlook and make other forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Such statements are only predictions based on management's current expectations. Actual events or results could differ materially from those predictions due to a number of risks and uncertainties, including those discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
