Presentation

Joyce L. Brooks

In addition to our guests here at the New York Stock Exchange, I'd like to welcome those joining us now, by webcast, to McCormick's April 17, 2002 (sic) [2012] A World Of Flavor Investor Conference. And to begin -- well, let's go to the next slide there. Okay. As we begin, I'd like to remind you that during the course of our remarks, we'll be making certain forward-looking statements. And in that regard, I would like to refer you to the information on this page.

In addition, we've included materials in your binders and the online slides that provide a reconciliation of any non-GAAP information to our GAAP measures. So no further delay, it's my pleasure to turn the floor over to Alan Wilson, Chairman, President and CEO of McCormick.
