Gross margin was 26.7% in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 27.0% in the fourth quarter of 2011. The gross margin declined year-over-year as a result of a change in sales mix across the business segments year-over-year.

President and Chief Executive Officer John C. Orr said, "We are pleased with our performance in 2012, particularly the strong growth we had in earnings on moderate top-line growth. Our results continue to demonstrate the value creation impact of our Innovation and Operations Excellence programs. Additionally, our strong free cash flow generation and balance sheet enabled us to make two key acquisitions, Novel and Jamco, which were accretive. We also continued to return cash to shareholders through share repurchases and increased dividends."
