Consolidated revenues increased 4.0%, and 1.1% on an OCC basis, for second-quarter 2020. Normalizing for the impact of the injunction on roof measurement solutions, which adjusts for $8 million of associated revenue in the prior-year period, OCC revenue would have grown 2.4% in second-quarter 2020.
The company has analyzed its solutions and services to assess the impact of COVID-19 on its revenue streams. It has not identified any material impact of COVID-19 on approximately 85% of its revenues at this point, as much of these revenues are subscription-based in nature and subject to long-term contracts. Normalizing for the impact of the injunction on the roof measurement solutions, these revenues would have grown approximately 6.5% on an OCC basis in the second quarter of 2020. Of the remaining 15%, the company has identified specific solutions and services, largely transactional in nature, that are being negatively impacted by COVID-19. These revenues declined approximately 20% on an OCC basis in second-quarter 2020 compared to the prior-year period.
