“Our results reflect the aggressive actions we have taken, which are in line with our long-term strategy to deliver greater value for shareholders and clients,” said Marc Lautenbach, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We experienced higher growth in our Digital Commerce Solutions segment and continue to implement a phased roll-out of our new go-to-market model in North America that will enhance the selling capabilities of our Mailing business. We also exited a non-core furniture business in Norway, and will gain 100 percent ownership in our Brazilian subsidiary operations. Improving margins across the portfolio demonstrate our continued commitment to improving operational efficiency. We continued to use a portion of the savings generated from our reduced operating costs to invest in positioning our digital commerce solutions for growth. We also recently announced an early debt retirement, using the proceeds of the North America Management Services sale, to further strengthen our balance sheet.”
