Joining me on the call today from PPG is Chuck Bunch, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer; Bob Dellinger, Senior Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer; and Dave Navikas, Vice President and Controller. Our comments relate to the financial information released on Thursday, July 15, 2010. Visual supporting this briefing may be accessed through the Investor Center on the PPG website at ppg.com. As noted on slide number two, our prepared remarks and comments made in the subsequent question-and-answer session may contain forward-looking statements reflecting the company’s current view about future events and their potential effect on PPG’s operating and financial performance. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that could effect the company’s operations and financial results, and as discussed in PPG industry’s filings with the SEC, may cause actual results to differ from such forward-looking statements. The company is under no obligation to provide subsequent updates on these forward-looking statements. This presentation also contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the company has provided in the appendix of the presentation material, reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
