We grew adjusted earnings per share by 1 percent versus the prior year, which is well below our expectations but reflective of the sluggish global economy. Our third quarter global sales volumes grew 1.6 percent despite a noticeable and broad deceleration of volume growth trends in Europe, where most of our coatings businesses experienced lower growth rates compared to the second quarter.
