The decrease in cash of $5.8 million during the first six months of fiscal year 2013 reflects net cash provided by operating activities of $2.1 million, capital expenditures of $4.9 million and payment of three quarterly dividends totaling $3.1 million. The Company expects that capital expenditures will be approximately $1.0 million for the remainder of fiscal year 2013.
All earnings per share amounts are on a diluted basis.
The Company believes that moderate top line growth will continue through the end of fiscal year 2013. Residential growth will continue with existing customers and products, and through expanding our product portfolio and customer base. The Company expects current order trends for commercial products to continue for the remainder of the fiscal year. The Company is confident in its ability to take advantage of market opportunities. However, our optimism is tempered due to economic uncertainty and its impact on the consumers’ confidence and willingness to buy.The Company remains committed to its core strategies, which include a wide range of quality product offerings and price points to the residential and commercial markets, combined with a conservative approach to business. We will maintain our focus on a strong balance sheet through emphasis on cash flow and improving profitability. We believe these core strategies are in the best interest of our shareholders.
