Hello, this is the conference operator. Welcome to Ballard Power Systems Second Quarter 2012 Conference Call and Webcast. [Operator Instructions]

I will now turn the conference over to Guy McAree, Director of Investor Relations.

Guy McAree

Thanks. So good morning, everybody. Today's call is for us to discuss Ballard's Second Quarter 2012 Operating Results. And with us today, we've got John Sheridan, our President and CEO; and Tony Guglielmin, our Chief Financial Officer.

We'll be making forward-looking statements that are based on management's current expectations, beliefs and assumptions concerning future events. Actual results could be materially different. For a detailed discussion of these statements and the assumptions used in generating them and the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to be materially different, please refer to our press release issued last night, our most recent annual information form and other filings.

You should note that Ballard reports financial results in accordance with IFRS. In addition, results are consolidated to include Dantherm Power, are also in U.S. dollars unless otherwise stated.

I'll turn it over to John Sheridan now.
