“Looking forward, we expect our growth momentum to continue as we enter 2013. Our new product pipeline is very full around the world and we are pleased that our global restructuring program is on track and proceeding smoothly. We also continue to be sharply focused on our aggressive funding-the-growth programs and our strategic worldwide pricing initiatives.“Based on this, we anticipate another year of gross margin expansion in 2013 and that diluted earnings per share will grow at a double-digit rate, on a dollar basis, excluding charges related to the 2012 Restructuring Program and absent any major currency devaluations or significant macroeconomic events.”
