Good day, everyone, and welcome to today's ATK First Quarter and Fiscal Year 2013 Earnings Results Conference Call. Today's call is being recorded, and at this time, I would like to turn the conference over to ATK's Vice President of Investor Relations and Corporate Finance, Mr. Steve Wold. Please go ahead, sir.

Steven P. Wold

Thanks, Melody. Good morning, and thank you for joining us today on our first quarter of fiscal '13 earnings call. With me today, I have Mark DeYoung, ATK's President and Chief Executive Officer; and Neal Cohen, Executive VP and Chief Financial Officer.

Before we begin today, I'd like to remind everyone that we'll be making several forward-looking statements that are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are made based on our best estimates, based on the understanding we have today, that are subject to the risks and uncertainties that face all businesses. We'd encourage you to review today's press release and our SEC filings for more information on those risks and uncertainties. Please also note that we posted charts on our website at, which will supplement the comments we make this morning and you'll see a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures there.
