WABCO Holdings CEO Discusses Q3 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

I am very work on the actually the agreement that was reached in Europe within this context because I hope it will come down the successive pessimism and avoids deceitful feeling downwards spiral that could lead nowhere but to add recessive pleasures.

Performance operating income of $94.5 million versus $56.4 million at the performance level and that translates into an operating margin of 13.4% just down from an all time record that we had seen during Q2 at 13.6%.
