Now let's move to Chart 2 and review the second quarter reconciliations for sales, operating profit and earnings per share. Second quarter 2012 segment sales were nearly $1.8 billion. Price and mix in the quarter were up $82 million or more than 4% from the prior year. As in prior quarters, cost pass-through provision had a small impact on sales. These provisions are in certain customer contracts and are principally for fluctuations in energy costs. Lower sales volumes decreased the top line by $95 million this quarter. This impact was primarily due to lower sales in Europe, which were partially offset by higher sales in the North and South American regions.Finally, currency translation had the most significant impact on the top line, reducing it by $159 million in the quarter, primarily due to a 12% decline in the euro and a 25% decline in the Brazilian real from the prior year quarter.
