The effective tax rates for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 were 31.4% and 29.1%. The effective tax rates for the six months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 were 30.0% and 29.3%. The increase in the effective tax rate during the three months and six months ended March 31, 2015 was primarily due to the less favorable geographic mix of pre-tax income in 2015, net of a reduction in the reserve for uncertain tax positions in 2015.
