The net income fell to $69.4 million, or 63 cents per share, from $73.8 million, or 62 cents per share, a year earlier.

The number of outstanding shares fell 7 percent in the third quarter.

Analysts on average had expected earnings of 64 cents per share on revenue of $2.09 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

The company's stock closed at $15.98 on Monday on the New York Stock Exchange.
