French term or phrase: base défavorable
Context:

Sur la forme, le discours a été globalement perçu comme franc et clair à l'exception peut être de l'explication donné sur la base défavorable que constitue le T2 2006.

Are they talking about disappointing results during the 2nd quarter of 2006?

Thanks for your help!
