Quarterly Financial Results:
"We made solid progress on our strategic plan in the third quarter," said Marc B.

We improved our operational excellence with increased margins and very solid cash flow performance in the quarter. Our ERP project, which promises to unlock substantial value in our Company, got off to a very good start in early October with a successful launch in Canada. Finally, although our Ecommerce business continued to face currency headwinds, the integration of Borderfree remains on track. Overall, Digital Commerce grew 10 percent on a constant currency basis and I remain very optimistic about the long-term prospects of this business."
