Jim Bolch, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased with the continuing improvement in our overall performance with operating income in the most recent three month period increasing 36% compared to the prior year quarter in spite of increased commodity costs and unfavorable foreign currency translation."

Consolidated Results

Fiscal 2011 third quarter consolidated net sales were $800.3 million as compared to net sales of $746.5 million in the fiscal 2010 third quarter. Net sales in the fiscal 2011 period were positively impacted by price increases of $28.4 million resulting from lead escalator agreements, and overall higher unit volumes of $51.2 million. These increases were partially offset by the negative impact of foreign currency translation of ($25.8 million). The increase in unit sales over the fiscal 2010 third quarter is driven by increased aftermarket sales in Transportation Europe and Rest of World and overall increased sales in the global Motive Power and Network Power channels.
