For the second quarter of 2012, the company’s net income rose by 6% to $193m, or $0.27 earnings per share, compared to $182m, or $0.24 earnings per share, for the corresponding period in the previous year.

Operating income was $305m for the quarter, compared to 285m for the same period in 2011.

Gross profit remained unchanged at $1.4bn in the second quarter of 2012, compared to the same period of 2011.
