European and North American member firms were hardest hit by the economic
conditions, both showing fee decreases.

member firms, while weakening currencies against the Dollar and the Euro
affected its results. However he was pleased that underlying revenues had
increased.

firms in Cambodia, Georgia and India, and our considerably stronger presence in
China,” said Newman.
