EMEA topline figures:

Q2 
• Revenues totalled $118.8 million for the second quarter compared to $117.2 million in the prior year quarter, up 1% (6% on a local currency basis). Local currency revenue growth was comprised of 6% growth from recent acquisitions and flat internal revenues.
• Adjusted EBITDA was $17.3 million, versus $17.1 million in the prior year quarter.
