Net orders (“orders”) during the quarter were $68.4 million, a decrease of $13.1 million, or 16%, when compared with the third quarter of 2011, which includes $2.8 million related to unfavorable foreign currency translation. Excluding the foreign currency impact, orders decreased $10.3 million, or 13%. Declines were in Asia where industrial activity growth is decelerating and Europe, where the economic conditions continue to negatively impact demand. Sequentially, orders were down 15% from the trailing second quarter of 2012, which was attributable to reductions in orders received from Europe and Asia. The Company’s order backlog at the end of the quarter was $127 million.
