Discussion on Presentation of Information
The average value of the U.S. Dollar strengthened in relation to the Canadian Dollar and British Pound Sterling during the quarter, as compared to the prior year period, with the average values of both the Canadian and British currencies decreasing approximately 1% relative to the U.S. Dollar. Consequently, fluctuations in currency rates had a moderate unfavorable impact on year-over-year comparisons of the Company’s consolidated financial results; and as a result, the Company is providing some country comparisons on a constant currency basis.
