Brink's says will be 'very difficult' to match 2012 earnings Brink's says "In 2013, it will be very difficult to match 2012 earnings due to an increase in productivity investments and our assumption of currency devaluation in Venezuela. We expect our first-quarter year-over-year comparison to be particularly challenging given the strong Latin America performance last year. In light of these factors, we expect our 2013 segment margin rate to be between 6% and 6.5% on organic revenue growth of 5% to 8%. Our long-term margin goal of 10% is still in place, although it's clear that achieving it will take longer than originally planned."
