| TRADING STATEMENT FOR THE THREE-MONTH AND NINE-MONTH PERIODS-ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2012
Luxfer Group revenue in the quarter was $114.5 million and, excluding rare earth chemical surcharges, net revenue was $109.2 million. This represents an underlying reduction in net revenue of -1.9% or $2.1 million, when adjusting for a $1.9 million negative impact due to adverse translation exchange rate changes. On a statutory reported basis, revenue was down -18.9%, reflecting a -1.5% negative impact relating to the translation of revenue of non-U.S. operations into U.S. dollars and a -15.9% negative impact on revenue relating to the reduction in the surcharge levied to recover increased rare earth costs.
