Operator

Welcome and thank you for standing by. (Operator Instructions) Now I'd like to turn the call over to Mr. Jeff Joerres. Sir, you may begin.

Jeff Joerres

Good morning and welcome to the second quarter 2012 conference call. With me, as usual, is Mike Van Handel, our Chief Financial Officer.

I'll go through the high level results for the quarter. Mike will then spend some time with the segment detail as well as the balance sheet and an outlook for the third quarter. I'll then do a wrap up on some comments and then we'll open up for questions. Mike, could you read the Safe Harbor language?

Mike Van Handel

Good morning. This conference call includes forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results might differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.

Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to materially differ from those in the forward-looking statements can be found on the company's annual report on Form 10-K and in the other Securities and Exchange Commission filing for the company, which information is incorporated here and by reference.
