Americas revenues rose $2 million, or 1%, compared to the second quarter of 2011, driven by bulletin revenue growth resulting from the Company’s continued deployment of digital displays, as well as higher airport sales on increased rates. Declines in poster revenues partially offset overall revenue growth.Operating expenses decreased $2 million during the second quarter of 2012 compared to the same period of 2011, including a decline of $8 million resulting from a favorable court ruling. Partly offsetting the expense decline were increased personnel costs and expenses associated with strategic revenue initiatives, as well as higher site lease expenses resulting primarily from the deployment of more than 250 digital billboards since the second quarter of 2011.
