The Q2 sales were at $634 million, a 12% increase in US dollars and an 11% jump in constant currency compared to the second quarter of the year prior.
Additionally, the second quarter GAAP operating income grew 12% to $60 million, a significant increase from the previous year which was at $53 million. The Q2 GAAP earnings per share or EPS grew 21% to $0.34, compared to $0.28 in the same quarter from the previous year.
