Hi, everyone. Thank you for joining our Second Quarter 2019 Earnings Call. We have Fastly's CEO, Artur Bergman; President, Joshua Bixby; and CFO, Adriel Lares with us today. First, we'd like to outline the format for this and future earnings announcement. We will publish a shareholder letter with our financial results on our Investor Relations website and with SEC shortly after market close on the day of our earnings release. Since the shareholder letter provides a lot of detail, we will begin each call with brief remarks before opening the line for questions. Our hope is that this format will -- in result have greater transparency and provide a more open dialogue.

We would also like to remind everyone that we'll be making forward-looking statements on this call. Today. Fastly will discuss the unaudited financials that were distributed on August 8th, 2019. Certain statements on this call include forward-looking statements, including statements related to the expected performance of our business, future financial results, strategy, long-term growth and overall future prospects. These statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or implied during this call. You should not rely upon them as predicted as future events.

All forward-looking statements that are made on this call are based on assumptions and beliefs as of today and we undertake no obligation to update them. Please refer to our risk factors filed in the final prospectus in connection with our initial public offering and those to be included in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Also our discussion today will include non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to and not a substitute for or in isolation from our GAAP results. A reconciliation of GAAP to not-GAAP measures is included in today's shareholder letter. The shareholder letter and accompanying financial tables can be found on our website at Finally, this call in its entirety is being webcast and will be archived on our website shortly after the call.
