Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by and welcome to the Cooper Tire Second Quarter 2012 Results Conference Call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. [Operator Instructions]

I will now hand the floor to Jerry Long. Mr. Long, please go ahead.



Jerry Long

Thank you. Good morning everyone and thank you for joining our call today. My name is Jerry Long and I serve as the company's Assistant Treasurer, responsible for Investor Relations.

To begin with, I would like to remind you that during our conversation today, you may hear forward-looking statements related to the future financial results and business operations of Cooper Tire & Rubber Company. Actual results may differ materially from current management forecasts and projections.

Such differences may be a result of factors over which the company has limited or no control. Information on these risk factors and additional information on forward-looking statements are included in the press release and in the company's reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

With me today are Roy Armes, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President; and Brad Hughes, who serves as Chief Financial Officer.
