Cash FlowDavid Drillock, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer commented, “Operating cash flows from continuing operations were $21.5 million for the first quarter 2011. During the quarter our average net working capital days decreased compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 due to our continued focus on our working capital. While trade accounts receivable increased $59.6 million due to higher revenues, the average days sales outstanding for the first quarter of approximately 49 days was flat with the fourth quarter 2010 average. Inventory increased by $49.4 million in the first quarter of 2011 due to higher demand and production, while average days on hand of approximately 69 days was slightly up from the average for the fourth quarter of 2010 of 67 days. Accounts payable increased by $114.6 million in the quarter due to the higher demand levels and an increase of 7 days to 58 days versus the average fourth quarter of 2010 level of 51 days. The decrease in accrued expenses reflects payments against our prior year incentive compensation accruals.
