Revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010 were $840.9 million, compared with revenues of $890.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.

Provisions in the legislation contributed to an effective tax rate for the Company of 22.2% for the fourth quarter of the year, compared to an effective tax rate of 30.4% for the first nine months of 2010 which did not include any impact from the legislation.

For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported net income of $955.5 million, or $6.87 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $1.4 billion, or $9.89 per share on a diluted basis, for the year ended December 31, 2009.
