For the Forged and Cast Rolls segment, sales and operating income for the quarter and year were less than the same periods of the prior year and were adversely affected by weak global demand, competitive pricing pressures and lower production volumes. Sales for the Air and Liquid Processing segment for the quarter and year improved slightly against 2011; however, operating income was adversely affected by changes in product mix.
