Hayes Okay, good morning, everyone. My name is John Hayes. I'm President and Chief Executive Officer of Ball Corporation. Welcome to our 2011 investor field trip management briefing. Before I begin, I want to give a special thank you to Ann Scott who's in the back here for setting this whole thing up. You can only appreciate the amount of effort that goes into organizing these types of things. So let's give her a big round of applause. We have a couple of goals for not only yesterday, but also today, and I just want to quickly review and recalibrate everyone. The first is to get to know us as a management team. There's a variety of people we'll talk about in a minute here. But really for those of you in the room, take advantage of it. I think we are very broad, diverse and experienced and talented management team, and I think that's important as we talk about our Drive for 10 vision and what we're doing going forward. We also want to discuss our shared vision and I said this briefly last night at dinner, but our definition of shared vision is when you invest in Ball, you invest with Ball, its management, employees and directors. We own over 12% of the stock, which is over $600 million of our own money in the company. And we feel that's very important as we align with you all as to what we're trying to do going forward. We also want to share our long-term investment theses. And in addition to Ray Seabrook, Scott Morrison and our various business units presidents, I want to highlight some of the people in the room that you might not have had a chance to meet yet last night. The first is Lisa Pauley, who's head of our HR and all of our compliance. She's back in the left there, my left I guess. Charles Baker, our General Counsel, he's back over here. Dan Rabbitt, who's Head of Corporate Development, way in the back there hiding behind the curtain so to speak. Shawn Barker, our Vice President and Controller; Mr. money man, Jeff Knoble, who controls our cash. He's our treasurer. He's right over there; and then last but not least, Leroy Williams, who's the head of our IT and doing a lot of neat things in the IT area.
