“We are pleased to deliver our fourth consecutive year of double-digit earnings growth,” said Gary E.

We continued to invest in our brands and innovative technology to secure long-term growth. In addition, we returned cash to shareholders by repurchasing 5.7 million shares and increased our dividend for the 34 th consecutive year.”

Commenting on the outlook for 2013, Hendrickson noted: “We expect uneven global demand to continue, but we are well-positioned for growth in both our Coatings and Paints segments. We have a strong new product pipeline to help gain new market share. Additionally, our productivity initiatives and operating discipline will support further margin expansion. We estimate fiscal 2013 net income per share to be in the range of $3.65 to $3.85, delivering another year of double-digit earnings growth.”
