Presentation

Operator

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by. Welcome to the Thomson Reuters First Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded. I would now like to turn the conference over to our host, Frank Golden, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead, sir.

Frank J. Golden

Good morning, and thank you for joining us as we report first quarter 2012 results. We'll begin today with our CEO, Jim Smith; followed by Stephane Bello, our CFO. Following Jim and Stephane's presentations, we will open the call for questions. Please limit yourselves to one question each so we can get to as many as possible.

Throughout today's presentation, keep in mind that when we compare performance period-on-period, we look at revenue growth rates before currency as we believe this provides the best basis to measure the underlying performance of the business. In addition, today's results are presented on an ongoing basis and exclude disposals announced to-date, including our Healthcare business.
