First half 2013 adjusted net income of $37 million and adjusted earnings per diluted share of $1.93 were down compared to adjusted net income of $41 million and adjusted earnings per diluted share of $2.16 in the first half of 2012, reflecting weaker demand across end market applications and higher interest expense.
