This was the result of an increase in hours worked of 20.0%, partially offset by a decrease in average hourly bill rates of 2.5% (2.7% on a constant currency basis). Fee-based income, which is included in revenue from services, totaled $24.4 million, or 2.0% of total revenue, for the second quarter of 2010, an increase of 18.9% (17.2% on a constant currency basis) as compared to $20.6 million in the second quarter of 2009.

Included in SG&A expenses for the second quarter of 2009 is $4.7 million for restructuring costs. These costs relate primarily to global severance, lease terminations, asset write-offs and other miscellaneous costs incurred in connection with the reduction in the number permanent employees and the consolidation, sale or closure of branch locations.
We recorded asset impairment charges of $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2010 and $52.6 million in the second quarter of 2009. In the second quarter of 2010, management assessed the viability of certain incomplete software projects in Europe. Based on the estimated costs to complete, management terminated the projects and recorded an asset impairment charge of $1.5 million. Due to significantly worse than anticipated economic conditions and the impacts to our business in the second quarter of 2009, we revised our internal forecasts for all of our segments, which we deemed to be a triggering event for purposes of assessing goodwill for impairment. Accordingly, goodwill at all of our reporting units was tested for impairment in the second quarter of 2009. This resulted in the recognition of a goodwill impairment loss of $50.5 million in total, of which $16.4 million related to the Americas Commercial segment, $12.1 million related to the APAC Commercial segment and $22.0 million related to the EMEA PT segment.
