Cash provided by continuing operations was $211 million in the fourth quarter, compared to cash provided by continuing operations of $154 million a year ago. The increase in cash provided by continuing operations during the fourth quarter was due to higher earnings and a reduction in inventory. These benefits were partially offset by increases in accounts receivable primarily due to the late timing of sales and by a reduction in advance payments resulting from a decline in new original equipment order activity.Capital expenditures were $72 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, compared to $35 million in the prior year fourth quarter. The expenditures resulted from the investments in manufacturing capacity in emerging markets and aftermarket service infrastructure.
