“We achieved our second quarter adjusted earnings per share target in spite of difficult global economic headwinds, and our margins continued to expand despite the adverse impact from recent acquisitions and certain discrete items, which has us trending lower in some of our guidance ranges,” said Scott Key, IHS president and chief executive officer. “In addition, we realized strong growth in free cash flow for the first half of 2013 for this key performance metric and driver of shareholder value creation.”
