Good day ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the VimpelCom Ltd Second Quarter 2012 Investor and Analyst Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. Later we’ll conduct a question-and-answer session and instructions will be given at that time. (Operator Instructions) As a reminder, today’s conference call is being recorded.
I’d now like to turn the conference over to your host Ms. Alex Tramont of FTI. Please go ahead.
Thank you. Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to VimpelCom’s conference call to discuss the Company’s second quarter 2012 financial and operating results.
Before getting started, I would like to remind everyone that forward-looking statements made on this call involve certain risks and uncertainties. These statements relate, in part to one, the Company’s plans to maintain profitable growth in its business units, and expected future results in Italy and Ukraine and to the Company’s expected future debt position and refinancing plans.
Certain factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements, including the risks detailed in one, the Company’s earnings release and presentation announcing second quarter 2012 results, two, the Company’s Annual Report on Form 20-F, and three, the most recent filings made by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
