The Flight Support Group's net sales improved slightly to $139.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $138.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. This increase reflects additional net sales of $3.6 million from fiscal 2012 acquisitions partially offset by an aggregate decrease of $1.9 million within our aftermarket replacement parts and repair and overhaul services product lines and a decrease of $1.6 million within our specialty product lines. Consistent with previous guidance, domestic economic uncertainty contributed to the demand decline for certain products within our aftermarket replacement parts and repair and overhaul services product lines during the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Furthermore, the decrease in net sales within our specialty product lines primarily reflects the impacts of production delays at certain customers. Based on our current economic visibility, we anticipate improving demand and moderate organic growth within the Flight Support Group principally during the second half of fiscal 2013.The Flight Support Group's operating income was $24.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $25.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The operating margin of the Flight Support Group was 17.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, down from 18.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in both operating income and operating margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 principally reflects a combination of a less favorable product mix and the previously mentioned lower sales within our specialty product lines.
