First Quarter Operating Results
"While comparison with the first quarter of fiscal 2013 is difficult, I am pleased with our team's execution against plan in what is expected to be our slowest quarter of the fiscal year," said Ted Doheny, President and Chief Executive Officer. "During the quarter we continued to move forward on our cost reduction programs which will help mitigate the impact from lower volumes during the year.
