This Webcast contains forward-looking statements, including those regarding Applied’s performance, strategies, market outlooks, strategic positions, capital allocation, integration of Varian, financial models, business outlooks, operations, products, and opportunities; customer spending; technology roadmaps; and all other statements that are not historical facts.  These statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements, including: the level of demand for Applied products, which is subject to various factors such as uncertain global economic and industry conditions, government renewable energy policies and incentives, end demand for electronic products and semiconductors, and customers’ new technology and capacity requirements; the concentrated nature of our customer base; our ability to (i) develop, deliver and support a broad range of products and expand our markets, (ii) effectively integrate Varian and realize synergies, (iii) timely align cost structure with business conditions, and (iv) attract, motivate and retain key employees; and other risks described in SEC filings, including our most recent Form 10-Q.  All forward-looking statements are based on management’s estimates, projections and assumptions as of March 28, 2012, and Applied undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.
