Terex Material Handling & Port Solutions: Net sales for the MHPS segment for the third quarter of 2012 increased $85.6 million, or 22.2%, to $470.8 million versus the third quarter of 2011. Net sales increased from the third quarter of 2011 due to the inclusion of Demag Cranes results for a full quarter in the current period and only half a quarter in the prior year period, as well as increased deliveries of standard and process cranes to customers in Western Europe, South Africa and the Middle East. Net sales generated by higher service activity also contributed to this increase.Income from operations was $19.9 million, or 4.2% of net sales, as compared with a loss from operations of $1.8 million, or 0.5% of net sales, during the third quarter of 2011. Operating performance improved as the prior year period included approximately $19 million in charges related to the fair value adjustment of inventory. This was partially offset by a $6.9 million charge in the current period as the Material Handling business made changes to better align production with market demand. In addition, a management allocation in the current period was not present in the prior year period.
