Commentary“We finished the year strong with another quarter of double-digit revenue growth, significant earnings improvement, very positive cash flow and continued increase in our backlog,” said Joseph F. Puishys, Apogee chief executive officer. “Our year-over-year improvement was particularly strong in the architectural segment. However, our large-scale optical picture framing glass business continued to deliver solid results.

“In flat market conditions, Apogee grew 14 percent over fiscal 2011 due to share gains, geographic growth, pricing and the acquisition of the Brazilian architectural glass business, which contributed 5 points of the growth,” he said. “Both the architectural and large-scale optical segments grew organically more than their markets.
