Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Mattel’s second quarter 2010 earnings conference call. At this time, all lines are in a listen-only mode. Later we will conduct a question-and-answer session and instructions will be given at that time. (Operator instructions) And as a reminder, this is being recorded. I would like to introduce Ms. Dianne Douglas. Please go ahead. Dianne Douglas Thank you, Mary. As you know, this morning we reported Mattel's second quarter 2010 financial results. In a few minutes, Bob Eckert, Mattel's Chairman and CEO, and Kevin Farr, Mattel's CFO, will provide comments on the results and then the call will be opened for your questions. Certain statements Bob and Kevin make during the call may include forward-looking statements relating to the future performance of our overall business, brands and product lines. These statements are based on currently available operating, financial, economic, and competitive information and they are subject to a number of significant risks and uncertainties, which could cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. We described some of these uncertainties in the Risk Factors section of our 2009 annual report on Form 10-K as well as in our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and in other filings we make with the SEC from time to time. Mattel does not update forward-looking statements and expressly disclaims any obligation to do so. Information required by Regulation G regarding non-GAAP financial measures is available on the Investors & Media section of our corporate website, mattel.com, under the headings Financial Information and Earnings Releases.
