The 'solid' second quarter helped first half 2013 revenue reach $454.6m, slightly down from $457.2m in the same period last year.

'We are also pleased with the progress we continue to make in our planning for the successful integration of WMS, while both companies remain focused on serving our respective customers and securing future business.'
