Good morning, and welcome to Cooper Tire & Rubber Company's First Quarter 2018 Earnings Call and Webcast. At this time all participants on the call are in listen-only mode. Later we will conduct a question-and-answer session and instructions will follow at that time. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder, this conference call is being recorded. I would now like to turn the conference over to Jerry Bialek.
