Management Commentary

James O’Leary, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, “The most recent quarter was unfavorably impacted by continuing global economic weakness, which combined with our proactive response to manage inventory levels, led to unfavorable comparisons relative to last year’s second quarter.

“The economic environment in Europe, and to a lesser extent Asia, continued to soften in the second quarter of 2012, affecting both business in these regions and exports to them. This impacted several of our businesses, notably those that service the high margin industrial machinery markets. In the United States, we saw slower growth than expected as orders placed for immediate shipment were impacted unfavorably affecting mix and marginal profitability in our largest segment, Friction Control.
