North America

Strong seasonal performance from GSI, solid industry demand and high acceptance of new products produced growth of 74.0% in North American sales in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period of 2011, excluding the impact of unfavorable currency translation. Excluding the benefit of acquisitions and currency translation, North American sales increased 36.4% in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011. The most significant increases were in sprayers, hay equipment and high horsepower tractors. The positive impact of acquisitions, higher sales and margin improvement all contributed to growth in income from operations of $113.2 million for the first six months of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011.
