Agency.com' second-quarter revenues were down by nearly half, with $25.8 million compared to $50.2 million for the same period last year, and $41.1 million in the first quarter of 2001. The company said it took a $28.3 million restructuring charge related to the already-announced lay off of 320 employees, or 22 percent of its workforce, during the quarter, including about 240 billable consultants.
