Good morning ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Signet Jewelers’ Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 conference call. This event is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the call over to Mr. Tim Jackson. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you. Good morning and welcome to our second quarter results call. With me are Mike Barnes, CEO, and Ron Ristau, CFO. The presentation deck we will be talking to is available from the webcast section of the Company’s website,
I will now give the Safe Harbor statement. During today’s presentation, we will in places discuss Signet’s business outlook and make certain forward-looking statements. Any statements that are not historical facts are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties and actual results may differ materially. We urge you to read the risk factors, cautionary language and other disclosures in the annual report on Form 10-K that will be filed with the SEC on March 22, 2012. We also draw your attention to this slide.
