Thanks and hello everybody. I hope you are doing great, enjoying the Olympics wherever you may be. We have the usual cast of characters on the call with us today, my Executive Vice President, Diederik Karsten, who runs our European Operations; Charlie Bracken and Bernie Dvorak, our co-CFOs; Balan Nair, our Chief Technology Officer; and Bryan Hall, our Counsel; and others on the call who might chime in from time to time.

Our agenda is as it has been in prior calls, I am going to make some opening remarks and then Bernie is going to go through the financials on this call and then we will get to your questions. But before I do that, we want to review the Safe Harbor statements. So, operator, please?


Thank you. Page 2 of the slides details the company’s Safe Harbor statement regarding forward-looking statements. Today’s presentation may include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including the company’s expectations with respect to its outlook for 2012; and future growth prospects and other information and statements that are not historical facts. These forward-looking statements involve certain risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these statements.

These risks include those detailed from time-to-time in Liberty Global’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its most recently filed Forms 10-K and 10-Q. Liberty Global disclaims any obligation to update any of these forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectation or in the conditions on which any such statement is based.

I would now like to turn the call back over to Mr. Mike Fries.

Great, thanks. So, as usual, we are going to go through some slides which you can access and I am going to start it off on Slide 4 with a quick recap of the quarter and where we are today in a few key areas.
