Diluted earnings per share for full year 2012 equaled the record high diluted earnings per share of $2.42 in full year 2011. However, the diluted earnings per share comparison between full year 2012 and full year 2011 was influenced by an additional or fifty-third week in full year 2011. After taking into account this additional week in 2011, diluted earnings per share increased approximately 2%, or $0.05, in full year 2012. Operating margin of 16.3% in full year 2012 improved 0.2 percentage points from full year 2011.

However, the diluted earnings per share comparison between the fourth quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarter of 2011 was influenced by an additional or fourteenth fiscal week in the fourth quarter of 2011. After taking into account this additional week, diluted earnings per share increased approximately 6%, or $0.04, in the fourth quarter of 2012. Operating margin of 18.1% in the fourth quarter of 2012 improved 0.3 percentage points from the fourth quarter of 2011.
