The effective tax rates for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were 29.8% and 27.5%. The increase in the effective tax rate during the three months ended June 30, 2015 was primarily due to discrete tax benefits recognized in 2014. The effective tax rates for the nine months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were 29.9% and 28.6%. The increase in the effective tax rate during the nine months ended June 30, 2015 was primarily due to discrete tax benefits recognized in 2014 and less favorable geographic mix of pre-tax income in 2015, partially offset by a reduction in the reserve for uncertain tax positions in the first quarter of 2015.
