"NCR is managing through this global economic downturn by executing consistently on our strategy, accelerating our multi-year cost structure improvement plan, and pressing our competitive advantages in the global marketplace," said Bill Nuti, chairman and chief executive officer of NCR. "The Company is focused on areas within our control, such as reducing our operating expenses, improving our working capital performance, and taking tangible steps to build our business by investing to drive shareholder value. While we expect the revenue environment will remain challenging, particularly due to difficult first half comparisons and lower volumes from retail customers, our aggressive cost reductions and investment initiatives will provide leverage as business conditions improve."
