Presentation

Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Nektar Therapeutics Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results Conference Call. My name is Erin, and I’ll be your coordinator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. We will be facilitating a question-and-answer session toward the end of today’s conference. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes.

I would now turn the presentation over to your host for today’s call, Ms. Jennifer Ruddock. Please proceed, ma’am.

Jennifer Ruddock

Good afternoon and thank you for joining us. With us today are Howard Robin, our President and CEO, John Nicholson, our Chief Financial Officer, Dr. Robert Medve, our Chief Medical Officer and Dr. Steve Doberstein, our Chief Scientific Officer.

On this call, we expect to make forward looking statements regarding our business including but not limited to clinical development plans, the timing of future clinical results and regulatory filings, the economic potential of our collaboration partnerships including potential milestone payments, the therapeutic and market potential of our drug candidates and those of our partners, our financial guidance for 2012, and certain other statements regarding the future of our business.

Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Important risks and uncertainties are set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed in February and our Form 8-k filed today. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise. A webcast of this conference call will be available for replay on the Investor Relations page at Nektar’s website at www.nektar.com.
