Good morning. This is Jessica Moore, vice president of investor relations for Johnson & Johnson. Welcome to our company’s review of business results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2022 and our financial outlook for 2023.

In particular, there is significant uncertainty about the duration and contemplated impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. A further description of these risks, uncertainties, and other factors can be found in our SEC filings, including our 2021 Form 10-K, which is available at investor.jnj.com and on the SEC’s website.

This slide acknowledges those relationships.

Moving to today’s agenda, Joaquin will open with a few comments highlighting his first year as CEO and his priorities for 2023.

The remaining time will be available for your questions.

We anticipate the webcast will last approximately 75 minutes. I am now pleased to turn the call over to Joaquin.
