I'd like to welcome our webcast audience. We're webcasting this for the first time and so we'll be happy to take questions as we get into Q&A, both from the audience here and also from the webcast, so feel free to send in your questions. Now before we get started, I would like Samir to read the Safe Harbor Statement.

Thanks, Samir. Okay, we've got a pretty interesting agenda today. Harry and I are going to talk through 2016 results and the plans for 2017. Then we've got Paul Hudson coming up you to talk about the pharmaceuticals business. Mike Ball will give an update on Alcon.
