Regionally, our performance broadly reflected the different macroeconomic conditions in global markets. Our business in the United States continues to grow at a steady pace that is slightly faster than the overall economy. In Asia and Latin America, we’re experiencing stronger growth. And as you might expect, the Eurozone remains a key geographic challenge.” said John D. Wren, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director.
