US Ecology, Inc. Q2 2010 Earnings Call Transcript
For the second quarter of 2010, net income was $2.3 million or $0.13 per diluted share as compared to $3.5 million or $0.19 per diluted share in the same quarter last year. To help with this quarter’s earnings in perspective, we estimate that Honeywell contributed $0.09 per share for the second quarter of 2009.
