So it I seem like as changed with everything some said, are just you costs does higher.

revenues why the segments sure maybe not the you specifically margins those So because flush out lower be unchanged. to if can would two it

Ewout Steenbergen

are to segments, staying example, small line expense movements adjustment drive on the to respect slight that, changes and but these the really just expected with the those Alex for which you're just line for two could and having segment. that revenues, for within range on margins a the with revenue respect

positive highlighted, this Insights some have as offset we by Russian the Commodity an segment the of where is then we Commodity the that impact me in Insights, as is commercially but businesses. momentum take very So situation, let have example

little of on I So margins being read in into overall, just and changes. bit a as we it. And revenue impacts is impact But part you those really we a These those see are on are seeing of can wouldn't offset it. much a that businesses. too and result, that reflected minor

next The Baird. Meuler is with Jeff from you. question Thank

You may go ahead.

Jeff Meuler

of revenue you. growth of any is in business, the data for is obviously it or growth that give I you magnitude the sense you Thank upstream just adjusted order the your see Yes. of I have third quarter given to straight continuing us Russia-Ukraine. that accelerate of question, my ACV can guess lagging.

Ewout Steenbergen

Jeff Meuler

inflationary or guess, driven in you’re are by And adjustments the saying Ewout, into of those reallocation of seeing. margin rating you’re Or Okay. pressure the revenue small. that, some of get that that also then I I outlook that I adjustments there are segment is the get the pricing because lower terms get guidance the segments? cost, the Thank corporate absorbed in segment other you.

Ewout Steenbergen

financial down, the changes respect because management also that coming synergies, we reporting the allocations course, are with helped allocations to so No actions of and by on, highlighted. actually of
