Good afternoon. My name is Brandice, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Q1 2012 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] Thank you. Ms. Robin Gutzler, Vice President, Investor Relations, ma'am, you may begin. Robin Gutzler Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Charter's 2012 First Quarter Earnings Call. This morning, we issued a press release over PR Newswire at 8 a.m. Eastern Time detailing our results. Before we proceed, I would like to remind you that there are a number of risk factors and other cautionary statements contained in our SEC filings, including our most recent Form 10-K and 10-Q. We won't review those risk factors and other cautionary statements on this call. However, we encourage you to read them carefully.
