U.S. Mailing operations revenue was flat for the quarter at $576 million, while EBIT grew five percent to $242 million. Revenue comparisons for the quarter were affected by two factors. First, as noted previously, the prior year included postal rate case revenue. Second, customers delayed placing orders due to uncertainties about the content and timing of the new rate case. Since the approval and publication of the new postal rates on March 19, the company is experiencing a strong pickup in orders. The segments EBIT margin increased during the quarter due to favorable product margins, growth in supplies and payment solutions, and benefits from productivity initiatives.
