In the second quarter of 2012, the Company initiated repositioning actions relating to the transfer of certain manufacturing operations from higher cost to lower cost Company facilities, principally in response to weak European economic conditions. Following aggregate pre-tax charges of $16.1 million through the third quarter, as planned, the Company incurred additional pre-tax costs of $4.5 million, or $0.07 per share, during the fourth quarter (total pre-tax charges of $20.6 million, or $0.29 per share, during 2012). These repositioning actions, which are substantially complete, are expected to generate $12 million in savings in 2013, of which $10 million relates to Fluid Handling.
