- Income from operations for the second quarter 2012 included $17.3 million of restructuring and impairment charges which was in line with the Company’s previously announced range of $15 million to $18 million in charges to be incurred in 2012. These actions are expected to positively impact operating income by $10 million to $12 million on an annualized basis when fully realized.
- Second quarter 2012 income from operations was $6.4 million or 2.2 percent of revenue compared to $24.6 million or 8.4 percent of revenue in the second quarter 2011.
