Consolidated revenue was $4.0 billion in the quarter, an increase of 1.0% over the prior year. Adjusted Revenue grew 4.9% compared to the prior year attributed to 3.0% growth in the legacy business and a 1.9% increase related to an accounting rule change. Legacy Revenue growth was driven by new business wins and base business growth across the segments:

  • FSS United States increased 1.9% led by continued strong performance in stadiums and arenas as well as growth in national parks and healthcare, partially offset by education.
  • FSS International grew 6.3% with continued strong performance in South America and China, as well as Europe despite the strategic exit of non-core custodial accounts in the region that occurred in the previous quarter.
