Highlight of Business Operations:

Interest and Other Expense was $12.9 million for the first quarter of 2010 compared to $11.9 million in 2009. Net Interest Expense increased $0.8 million in the first quarter to $9.4 million due to lower interest rates on money market investments and our Euro denominated interest expense being translated into U.S. dollars at higher rate in 2010 than 2009. Translation losses in the first quarter of 2010 were $1.6 million compared to $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2009. This increase was primarily related to a translation loss of $1.2 million for Venezuela, as a result of the Venezuela reporting unit s currency (Bolivar Fuerte) being devalued in January 2010 as well as changing the functional currency of our Venezuela reporting unit to the U.S. Dollar as the result of its current economy being deemed hyperinflationary, effective January 1, 2010.

Net Earnings Per Share – Diluted increased to $0.04 in the first quarter of 2010 compared to a Net Loss Per Share – Diluted of $(0.02) in the first quarter of 2009. Exchange rates had a positive impact of $0.03 on Net Earnings Per Share – Diluted. Weighted Average Shares – Diluted were 79.9 million for the first quarter of 2010 as compared to 78.1 million in the first quarter of 2009, an increase of 2.2% as a result of including dilutive shares in the calculation in 2010 compared to 2009 where we incurred a net loss and excluded the impact of such shares.

Selling and Administrative Expenses increased during the first quarter of 2010 compared to 2009 due primarily to $3.3 million (€2.4 million) of costs in 2010 related to the relocation of our headquarters and the reversal of a $3.9 million (€3.0 million) legal reserve related to the French competition investigation in 2009. The remaining expenses were essentially flat with the 2009 level. Selling and Administrative Expenses as a percent of revenues decreased in the first quarter of 2010 compared to 2009, as our revenues increased more rapidly than our Selling and Administrative Expenses.
