Third quarter revenues increased 7 percent, from $4.4 billion last year to $4.7 billion in the current year. Excluding changes in currency exchange rates, net revenue was up 2 percent compared to the same quarter last year.

Third quarter net income was $496 million or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to $244 million or $0.50 per diluted share in the same period last year.
