McDonald’s Corp. reported a slight decrease in net income for the June 30-ended second quarter, in which it earned $1.39 billion, or $1.40 per share. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company’s global same-store sales were relatively flat, owing to negative guest traffic but a higher average check in all its major markets. Some of McDonald’s largest markets continued to struggle in the quarter, as they have all year, including the United States, Germany and Japan. The company operates or franchises more than 35,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries.
