Greetings, and welcome to the Federated Investors First Quarter 2012 Earnings Call and Webcast. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.

Ray Hanley

Good morning, and welcome. We will make some remarks this morning before opening up for questions. Leading today's discussion will be Chris Donahue, Federated's CEO and President, and Chief Financial Officer, Tom Donahue. And also joining us on the call is Debbie Cunningham, who is our Chief Investment Officer for Money Markets. And let me say that during today's call, we will make forward-looking statements. And we want to note that our actual results may be materially different in the results implied by such statements. We invite you to review the risk disclosures in our SEC filings. No assurance can be given as to future results, and Federated assumes no duty to update any of these forward-looking statements. And with that, I will turn it over to Chris.
