The improved operating margin is primarily attributed to the previously mentioned increased sales volumes of higher margin products. The Electronic Technologies Group's operating margin was 23.4% for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2012 compared to 26.1% for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2011. The decrease in operating margin principally reflects the dilutive impact of approximately 4% from lower operating margins realized by the 3D Plus and Switchcraft acquisitions. The lower operating margins of these businesses are principally attributed to amortization expense associated with intangible assets and inventory purchase accounting adjustments aggregating approximately $10 million during fiscal 2012.
