Good morning, and welcome to Horizon Pharma’s second quarter earnings call.

Todd Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer will provide an overview on the commercial launch of DUEXIS and I will provide an overview of the financial highlights from the second quarter 2012 before turning the call back over to Tim for closing remarks.

As a reminder during today’s call, we will be making certain forward-looking statements. These statements may include statements regarding our financial outlook, our regulatory and sales and marketing plans, potential growth of our business plans to enter into future commercial agreement and anticipated timing of product approvals. These forward-looking statements are based on current information, assumptions, and expectations that are subject to change and involve a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.
