Updated Guidance The company has updated its 2015 guidance to reflect actual results for the first half of the year and current expectations for the remainder of the year. The company has reduced revenue guidance primarily due to the following two factors: The change in foreign currency exchange rates between the original guidance provided in January and current rates. In January, the Company expected foreign currency exchange rates to negatively impact 2015 revenue by approximately $32 million. The company now expects foreign currency exchange rates to negatively impact 2015 revenue by approximately $42 million; and The loss of a client in the company's Telecom Services operating segment. This client has made the decision to consolidate its business with a single network provider. The Company expects this loss to negatively impact second half 2015 revenue by approximately $15 million. The client expects the transition to begin in the third quarter of 2015 and be completed by November 2015. The company now expects, consolidated revenue to be in the range of $2,275 - $2,310 million against previous range of $2,295 - $2,340 million; Adjusted net income to be in the range of $259 - $267 million against previous range of $257 - $267 million; Adjusted earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $3.02 - $3.12 against previous range of $2.96 - $3.08; and Earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $2.22 - $2.33 against previous range of $2.20 - $2.31. The company reaffirms previous guidance for adjusted operating income; operating income; adjusted EBITDA; EBITDA; net income; cash flows from operations; capital expenditures and free cash flow guidance.
