Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by, and welcome to Calgon Carbon Corporation's Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Call. All lines have been placed on mute to prevent any background noise. After the speakers' remarks, there will be a question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) I would now like to turn the conference over to Gail Gerono, Vice President of Investor Relation. You may begin your conference. Gail Gerono Thank you. Good morning everyone and thank you for joining us. This quarterly call is the first for two of our speakers, Randy Dearth and Bob O'Brien. Randy joined Calgon Carbon as President and CEO on August 1. So, this is his one week anniversary. He had been President and CEO of LANXESS, an international chemical manufacturer, and has also been a member of Calgon Carbon board of directors since 2007. Many of you know Bob O'Brien. Bob has been with the company for more than 35 years and he was named Chief Operating Officer earlier this year. Steve Schott, our CFO, will be our first speaker providing a review of Calgon Carbon second quarter financials. Before Steve begins, I would like to remind you that the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a Safe Harbor for forward-looking statements. Today's presentations or perhaps some of the comments that Calgon Carbon's executives make during the Q&A may contain certain statements that are forward-looking. Forward-looking statements typically contain words such expect, believe, estimate, anticipate or similar words indicating that future outcomes are uncertain.
