* Earnings for the third quarter were 70 cents per share, compared with 42 cents per share in 2007; * Financial self-service products and services revenue increased 18.3% over the prior period, while total security revenue decreased 6.4%; * Election systems revenue in Brazil totaled $58.6 million, more than 85% of Diebold’s increase in total election systems revenue; and * The net positive currency impact was 3.4 percentage points.
The third-quarter results included restructuring changes related primarily to severance and reorganization costs from the previously announced reduction in Diebold’s global workforce. Diebold also incurred $24.7 million in non-routine expenses in the third quarter, compared with $3.3 million in third-quarter 2007. “We continue to make solid progress on our key initiatives to reduce costs and improve profitability, and this is reflected in our results,” said Thomas W. Swidarski, Diebold president/CEO.

PLANO, Texas (10/31/08)--Southwest Corporate FCU Tuesday rolled out Member Capture, a remote deposit product, at its annual economic forum. “Depositing a check no longer means driving to a credit union branch,” said Brad Ganey, Southwest Corporate vice president of item processing services. “Credit unions can add time back into their members’ days. At the same time, credit unions can attract and retain members with this product and ease traffic congestion in their lobbies.” Member Capture processes check deposits from a member’s home or any other location with a computer, Internet connection and a scanner. The application is accessed through a credit union’s home banking program (LoneStar Leaguer Oct. 30). The Plano, Texas-based Southwest Corporate also plans to introduce ATM Image Capture, according to the Texas Credit Union League.
