Fiscal 2012 Third Quarter Outlook:

The following statements are based on the Company's current expectations for the fiscal 2012 third quarter. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.

"Our guidance reflects strong execution in our distribution business given the more muted outlook for the continuing economic recovery and the ongoing year-over-year transition of certain customer gross revenue to a net fee for service logistics relationship," Mr. Murai continued. "While earnings in the prior year third quarter included some exceptional items, including a large benefit to GBS SG&A for a contingent M&A credit, this year's third quarter outlook reflects a more normalized profit margin for our distribution segment and continued progress in our GBS segment."
