“We are entering 2013 with a solid foundation to execute our strategy and capitalize on the opportunities before us. We remain focused on driving profitable growth and creating superior value for our customers and our shareholders.”


Net income fell to USD 7.2 million (from USD 69.2 million reported for the corresponding quarter 2011). Revenue fell 15 percent to USD 1.50 billion, consistent with the company's forecast of between USD 1.43 - 1.53 billion (announced October 23, 2012).
