Good morning, and welcome to the Third Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. (Operator Instructions) Thank you. Mr. Jim King, you may begin your conference.

Jim King

Thank you, operator. Good morning, everyone, and welcome to our third quarter conference call. With me this morning are Jim Hagedorn, our Chairman and CEO, as well as Dave Evans, our Chief Financial Officer. After their prepared remarks, Jim, Dave and other members of the management are here to take your questions. In the interest of time though, we ask that you keep your questions to one and to one follow-up. If you have other unanswered questions, I am glad to spend time with you one on one after the call.

With that, I want to move on to today’s call. I want to remind everyone that our comments will contain forward-looking statements. As such, actual results may differ materially. Due to that risk, Scotts Miracle-Gro encourages you to review the risk factors outlined in our Form 10-K and our most recent 10-Q, which was filed yesterday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
