Segment adjusted EBITDA totaled $46.8 million compared to $51.8 million in the prior year quarter.

Net income totaled $3.6 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to $9.0 million, or $0.16 per share, in the prior year quarter. Current quarter results included restructuring costs of $1.6 million ($1.0 million, net of tax, or $0.02 per share) and a discrete tax benefit of $1.5 million, or $0.03 per share. The prior year quarter included a discrete tax benefit of $1.6 million or $0.03 per share.
