OUTLOOK“With our second-quarter earnings, the quality of our architectural backlog and the visibility this backlog provides for the remainder of the year, we are increasing our earnings outlook for fiscal 2013 to $0.56 to $0.64 per share, from $0.48 to $0.58 per share,” said Puishys.

“We continue to anticipate mid single-digit revenue growth for the full year, despite market indicators pointing to a low- to no-growth year,” he said. “We believe growth will continue to come from share gain by our architectural businesses.
