Good day, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Second Quarter 2012 Cosi Inc. Earnings Conference Call. My name is Keith and I'll be your operator for today. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. Later on, we will conduct a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions). As a reminder, today's conference is being recorded for replay purposes.
And I would now like to turn the conference over to your host for today, Mr. Bill Koziel, Chief Financial Officer. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you, operator. Good afternoon, everyone. I'd like to welcome you to Cosi's 2012 second quarter results conference call. Joining me on the call today is Carin Stutz, Cosi's President and Chief Executive Officer.
Cosi's earnings release was issued today at market close and is available in the Investor Information section of our website at www.getcosi.com. During this call, we will be referencing supplemental materials, which are also available in the Investor Information section of our website. If you haven't already done so, please access the materials at this time.
As we always do, we will address our regulatory housekeeping matters before we begin. So during our introductory comments and our responses to your questions, certain items may be discussed which are not based on historical fact; any such items, including expected results and any details related to expected performance should be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
