Good morning, and welcome to the Precision Castparts Webcast and Conference Call to discuss its first quarter for fiscal 2013. This event is being recorded and will be available on PCC's company website at www.precast.com shortly after the conclusion of the presentation and discussion.

[Operator Instructions] Now I will turn the floor over to Mr. Mark Donegan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Precision Castparts. Please go ahead, sir.

Mark Donegan

Thank you, operator. I'm sure you're all very familiar with the forward-looking statement. You need to take consideration when you're analyzing the following information. If I look at Q1 in total, I think it provided a solid expansion on both the top and bottom line versus last year. But looking at our company performance in total, we saw sales increase by 17.6%, going from roughly $1.68 billion last year to roughly $1.97 billion this year.
