Revenue in Europe was up 1 percent. Volumes were stronger in the southern region (Greece, Spain and Italy), but most countries continued to be affected by weak European demand. We continued to grow in countries such as the UK, Russia and Turkey. Restructuring measures and various operational efficiency improvement programs led to a lower cost base. As a result, operating income was higher than the previous year.
