OUTLOOK“We are increasing our earnings outlook for fiscal 2013 to $0.62 to $0.67 per share from continuing operations, from $0.56 to $0.64 per share, as we benefit from improving margins resulting from better mix and good operational performance,” said Puishys. “Regarding top-line growth, our outlook for the full year is that revenues will grow 5 to 6 percent as we continue to outperform our end markets.

“For the full year, we expect positive free cash flow, net of spending approximately $30 million of capital for investments to improve productivity, increase capacity and introduce new products, as well as for maintenance requirements,” Puishys said. “In addition, we continue to look for long-term investments to support growth and capabilities.
