AmericasAmericas revenues rose $14 million, or 4%, on a reported basis and 5% adjusted for movements in foreign exchange rates, driven by higher occupancy and capacity on digital displays, higher occupancy and rate on traditional bulletins, strong growth in posters, and growth in airports. Partially offsetting this growth were declines in our specialty businesses. Operating expenses increased $10 million, or 6%, to $197 million for second quarter 2013, on a reported basis and adjusted for the effects of movements in foreign exchange rates. Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2012 reflected a favorable court ruling of $8 million.
