Cost of sales as a percentage of revenue slightly declined from the prior-year period. The increase in route and SG&A expenses (excluding investigation and review-related expenses) as a percentage of revenue primarily reflects the decline in revenue in the six months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the prior-year period.
