Selling, General and Administrative

For Q2 2013, selling, general and administrative expenses were $20.5 million, an increase of $2.6 million from $17.9 million for Q2 2012. For the six month period of 2013, selling, general and administrative expenses were $40.5 million, an increase of $3.1 million from $37.4 million for the comparable period of 2012. The increase in both periods was primarily due to costs related to the restructuring of the company’s U.K. operations and, to a lesser extent, costs associated with increased professional services.
