Welcome to Manpower's second quarter earnings results conference call. (Operator Instructions) I would now like to turn the call over to Mr. Jeff Joerres, Chairman and CEO. Jeff Joerres Good morning and welcome to the second quarter conference call of 2010. With me this morning is our Chief Financial Officer, Mike Van Handel. Together we'll go through the results of the second quarter. I'll spend some time overviewing the business and giving an update on our economic indicators, and then Mike will cover the segment detail and financial side of the business as well as any implications of these trends. This is a little different than what we have done in the past, as I covered the segment detail, but we're trying to be more effective and be as clear as possible. So we've decided on using this new format. Before we get into that new format, Mike, could you read the Safe Harbor language? Mike Van Handel Good morning, everyone. This conference call includes forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to materially differ from those in the forward-looking statements can be found in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and in the other Securities and Exchange Commission filings of the company, which information is incorporated herein by reference.
