Fiscal 2011 earnings from continuing operations included a pre-tax gain of $19.5 million ($10.3 million after tax or $0.21 per diluted share) from the sale of the Company’s interest in a foreign investment.Operating profit in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 increased by 10.1% to $52.5 million (4.68% of sales) from $47.7 million (4.54% of sales) in the first quarter of fiscal 2011.
