SEGMENT OVERVIEW

In North America, net sales were $857.9 million for the third quarter of 2013, down 1% compared to net sales of $868.8 million for the third quarter of 2012.

Selling and administrative expenses in North America in the third quarter of 2013 increased 6%, or $5.3 million, year over year. The year over year comparison was affected by a prior year reduction of legal expenses of approximately $2.0 million upon the recovery of previously incurred costs during the third quarter of 2012. During the third quarter of 2013, North America recorded severance and restructuring expenses of $530,000, $333,000 net of tax, compared to $916,000, $576,000 net of tax, during the third quarter of 2012. As a result, earnings from operations in North America increased 4% year over year to $29.3 million, or 3.4% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $28.3 million, or 3.3% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2012.

The Company's APAC operating segment reported net sales of $29.5 million for the third quarter of 2013, a decrease of 18% compared to the third quarter of 2012 in U.S. dollars, a decrease of 11% excluding the effects of foreign currency movements.

Selling and administrative expenses in APAC decreased 12%, or $741,000, compared to the third quarter of 2012 in U.S. dollars. Excluding the effects of foreign currency movements, selling and administrative expenses decreased 3% compared to the third quarter of last year. As a result, earnings from operations in APAC decreased 23% year to year to $730,000, or 2.5% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $950,000, or 2.6% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2012.

Throughout this "Segment Overview" section, the Company refers to changes in net sales, gross profit and selling and administrative expenses in EMEA and APAC excluding the effects of foreign currency movements. In computing these changes and percentages, the Company compares the current year amount as translated into U.S. dollars under the applicable accounting standards to the prior year amount in local currency translated into U.S. dollars utilizing the average translation rate for the current period.

Net of tax amounts referenced above were computed using the statutory tax rate for the taxing jurisdictions in the operating segment in which the related expenses were recorded, adjusted for the effects of valuation allowances on net operating losses in certain jurisdictions.

UPDATED GUIDANCE

The Company currently expects diluted earnings per share to be between $0.49 and $0.54 in the fourth quarter. For the full year 2013, earnings per share is expected to be between $1.80 and $1.85. This outlook includes an effective tax rate of 39% for the fourth quarter. This outlook excludes severance and restructuring expenses incurred during 2013.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The non-GAAP financial measures exclude severance and restructuring expenses in 2013 and 2012, a gain on bargain purchase in 2012 and the tax effect of these items. The Company excludes these charges when internally evaluating earnings from operations, tax expense, net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the Company and earnings from operations for each of the Company's operating segments. These non-GAAP measures are used to evaluate financial performance against budgeted amounts, to calculate incentive compensation, to assist in forecasting future performance and to compare the Company's results to those of the Company's competitors. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency, facilitate comparisons to prior periods and the Company's competitors' results and assist in forecasting performance for future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
