The effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was 42.3% and 37.1%, respectively. The variances from the U.S. federal statutory tax rate of 21% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were primarily attributable to the mix of earnings in the jurisdictions with lower statutory rates than the U.S. and tax deductions related to stock award activities offset by tax deductions related to foreign derived intangible income tax credits.
