Good day ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Brooks Automation Earnings Conference call.. Please be aware that this conference is being recorded. And at this time, I’d like to turn the call over to your presenter for today, Mr. Martin Headley, Chief Financial Officer. Sir, you may proceed.
Thank you very much Chris and good afternoon everybody. I’d like to welcome each of you to the third quarter financial results conference call for Brooks in our fiscal 2012 year. We’ll be covering the results of that third quarter that ended on September the 30 and providing an outlook into the fourth fiscal quarter, which will end on September 30, 2012.
Our press release was issued after the close of markets today and is available at the investor relations page of our website www.brooks.com, as are the illustrative PowerPoint slides to be used with our prepared comments during today's call.
I’d like to remind everybody that during the course of the call, we will be making a number of forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Litigation Securities Act of 1995.
There are many factors that may cause actual financial results or other events to differ from those identified in such forward-looking statements. I’d refer you to the section of our earnings release titled Safe Harbor Statement, the Safe Harbor slide in the aforementioned PowerPoint presentation on our website, and the company’s various filings with the SEC including Form 10-Q for the third quarter ended June 30, 2012. We make no obligation to update these statements, should future financial data or events occur that differ from forward-looking statements presented today.
