Good morning. Thank you for participating in Wiley's Fiscal Year 2013 First Quarter Investor Conference Call. And with us are Ellis Cousens, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Operations Officer; and Brian Campbell, Director of Investor Relations. I'll take a few moments to provide an overview of Wiley's performance in the first quarter and we will then respond to your questions and comments. When we review Wiley's performance, we'll refer to financial variations, excluding the effect of foreign exchange unless otherwise noted.
