Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to MetLife 2012 Asia Investor Day. Please welcome, MetLife's Vice President of Investor Relations, John McCallion.
Good afternoon. Thanks for joining us on our 2012 Asia Investor Day. We are delighted to have the chance to talk to you about our Asia region. Before I do that, a couple of housekeeping items. This is distinctly written Safe Harbor Statement that says that there will be some forward-looking statements made today, and they can all turn out to be an wrong. We've also listed all the risk factors that could cause all those statements to be wrong, and you could see those also in our filings with the SEC. And then we have our non-GAAP measures, which we commonly use to measure the company and explain the results. You can see reconciliations of the historical data to the most directly comparable GAAP measures there in the Appendix and also on our Investor Relations website, which is a portion of our metlife.com website. Okay. All right.
So before I invite Chris up to give a brief overview, let me just run through the agenda for the day. So Bill Hogan and his team will give a run -- overview of the Japan operations, and then we'll take a 10-minute break. And then I'll ask Jong Kim and Bob Pei to come up, and they'll discuss our Korea and China operations, respectively. And then Toby Brown, our CFO of Asia will wrap up the day and presentation. We'll take another quick 10-minute break, and then we'll come back and we'll have one Q&A at the end to go through and give you a chance to ask some questions of our presenters.
