Excluding special items, adjusted net loss for the quarter amounted to 25 cents per share. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters estimated a loss of 31 cents per share, on average. Analysts typically exclude one-time items. Revenue climbed 5 percent to $412.8 million, up from $391.9 million in the prior-year period. For the full-year, earnings rose 3.3 percent to $120.4 million, or $2.39 per share, compared with $116.5 million, or $2.33 per share, during the same period last year.
