Revenue for the quarter was $1,402 million, compared to $1,876 million in the second quarter of 2008. GAAP net earnings were $5.3 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to GAAP net earnings of $39.8 million, or $0.17 per share, for the same period last year.

Adjusted net earnings for the quarter were $25 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $38.9 million, or $0.17 per share, for the same period last year. The term adjusted net earnings is defined as net earnings before other charges, amortization of intangible assets (excluding amortization of computer software), option expense, gains or losses related to the repurchase of shares and debt, net of tax and significant deferred tax write-offs or recoveries. Detailed GAAP financial statements and supplementary information related to adjusted net earnings appears at the end of this press release.
