Foreign currency risk

 

Our earnings are affected by fluctuations in the value of the U.S. dollar as compared with foreign currencies, predominately the Euro, the British Pound and the Australian dollar due to our operations in Europe and Australia. (See Item 2, Outlook, above)

 

We have operations in 23 countries outside of the U.S., including the United Kingdom, Austria, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand and the Netherlands. We provide services in these countries using networks deployed in each country. We manage foreign exchange risk through the structure of our business. In the substantial majority of our transactions, we receive payments denominated in the U.S. dollar, British Pound, Euro or Australian dollar. Therefore, we do not rely on international currency markets to obtain and pay illiquid currencies. The foreign currency exposure that does exist is limited by the fact that the majority of transactions are paid according to our standard payment terms, which are generally short-term in nature. Our policy is not to speculate in foreign currencies, and we promptly buy and sell foreign currencies as necessary to cover our net payables and receivables, which are denominated in foreign currencies. For the three months ended March 31, 2009, we recorded a loss on foreign currency revaluation of approximately $0.1 million.

We have operations in 20 countries outside of the U.S., including the United Kingdom, Austria, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, France, German, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand and the Netherlands. We provide services in these countries using networks deployed in each country. We manage foreign exchange risk through the structure of our business.

In the substantial majority of our transactions, we receive payments denominated in the U.S. dollar, British pound, euro or Australian dollar. Therefore, we do not rely on international currency markets to obtain and pay illiquid currencies. The foreign currency exposure that does exist is limited by the fact that the majority of transactions are paid according to our standard payment terms, which are generally short–term in nature. Our policy is not to speculate in foreign currencies, and we promptly buy and sell foreign currencies as necessary to cover our net payables and receivables, which are denominated in foreign currencies. For the six months ended June 30, 2005, we recorded a loss on foreign currency translation of approximately $0.6 million.
