Net Sales

Net sales increased $14 million for the three months ended December 28, 2012 to $385 million from $371 million for the three months ended December 30, 2011. The increase was due primarily to higher volume from our Global Pipe, Tube and Conduit ("GPTC") products of $24 million, and $5 million of freight recovery classified as revenue in the current period. This increase was partially offset by a reduction of $10 million due to lower pricing from GPTC and an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of $4 million primarily as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. Dollar versus the Brazilian Real.

Operating Income

Operating income increased by $5 million to $7 million for the three months ended December 28, 2012 compared to $2 million for the three months ended December 30, 2011. The increase was due primarily to higher gross margins of $7 million for GPTC products as a result of higher volume and lower average raw material costs, offset by higher  lower selling, general, and administrative expense of $2 million

Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP): Adjusted EBITDA was $27 million and $19 million for the three months ended December 28, 2012 and December 30, 2011, respectively.

Adjusted Economic EBITDA (Non-GAAP): In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Company began including results in terms of Adjusted Economic EBITDA to evaluate the performance of the Company.  Adjusted Economic EBITDA is a metric used internally by management and differs from Adjusted EBITDA results by substituting an estimate of the current period, current market steel materials cost in the Pipe, Tube and Conduit business for the accounting cost, which is done on a FIFO basis.  The Company believes Adjusted Economic EBITDA provides a more accurate view of the economic performance of the business by aligning the relationship between pricing and steel cost in the same period.  Use of the FIFO costing method, as we do in our GAAP accounting records, results in higher spreads when steel costs are rising and lower spreads when steel costs are falling.  The difference may be significant and may result in distorted performance comparisons.  The use of Adjusted Economic EBITDA eliminates a significant portion of this volatility. Adjusted Economic EBITDA was $35 million and $34 million for the three months ended December 28, 2012 and December 30, 2011, respectively.

Net Sales

Net sales for the three months ended December 28, 2012 increased $13 million to $249 million from $236 million for the three months ended December 30, 2011. The increase was attributable primarily to higher volume partly offset by lower average selling prices. The gradually improving non-residential construction market in North America contributed to higher volumes, up 12% from the three months ended December 30, 2011. The increase was also attributable to $5 million of freight recovery, which was classified as revenue in the current period. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates had an unfavorable impact of $4 million, primarily as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. Dollar versus the Brazilian Real.

Operating Income

Operating income for the three months ended December 28, 2012 increased $7 million to $8 million compared to $1 million in the three months ended December 30, 2011. The increase in operating income was due primarily to higher volume and lower average raw material steel costs for GPTC products partly offset by lower average selling prices. Average selling prices were 6% lower and average raw material steel costs were 11% lower during three months ended December 28, 2012, compared to the three months ended December 30, 2011.

Net Sales

Net sales increased $3 million to $145 million for the three months ended December 28, 2012 compared to $142 million for the three months ended December 30, 2011. The increase was attributable to higher volume and selling prices for Global Cable & Cable Management ("GCCM") products due to gradually improving non-residential construction markets in North America and Asia-Pacific.

Operating Income

Operating Income for the three months ended December 28, 2012, decreased $4 million to $8 million compared to $12 million in the three months ended December 30, 2011. The decrease was due primarily to a $2 million adjustment to restructuring reserves, a $1 million impairment charge associated with an asset held for sale and higher average raw material copper prices, offset by a favorable impact of higher average selling prices for GCCM products.

Forward-looking statements are based on our beliefs, assumptions and expectations of our future financial and operating performance and growth plans, taking into account the information currently available to us. These statements are not statements of historical fact. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations of future results we express or imply in any forward-looking statements, and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements. Factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from the events or results described in any forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: the sustained downturn in the non-residential construction industry; fluctuations in the price of raw materials; new regulations related to "conflict minerals"; our reliance on the availability and cost of freight and energy; changes in governmental regulation, including the National Electrical Code or other legislation and regulation; risks relating to doing business internationally; claims for damages for defective products; our ability to generate or raise capital in the future; risk of material environmental, health and safety liabilities and obligations; changes in the source and intensity of competition in business; the level of similar product imports into North America; our reliance on a small number of customers; work stoppages, employee strikes and other production disputes; our significant financial obligations relating to pension plans; unplanned outages at our facilities and other unforeseen disruptions; our ability to protect and enforce our intellectual property rights; our ability to attract and retain qualified employees; the reliability of our information systems; cyber security risks and cyber incidents; risks inherent in acquisitions and the financing thereof; our substantial indebtedness and our ability to incur further indebtedness; limitations on our business under the instruments governing our indebtedness; risks relating to us operating as a stand-alone company; and the risk that the benefits from the sale by Tyco International Ltd. of a majority interest in us to Clayton Dubilier & Rice, LLC and the related transactions may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected.

You should read carefully the factors described under the section titled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 28, 2012, and those described in our other filings with the SEC.  These and other risks, uncertainties and factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected in any forward-looking statements we make.  These factors may not constitute all factors that could cause actual results to differ materially. We operate in a continually changing business environment. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all risks that may affect us.  We assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements for any reason, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.  Comparisons of results for current and any prior periods are not intended to express any future trends or indications of future performance, unless expressed as such, and should be viewed as historical data.

(6)

Other represents the net impact of other non-cash items, including non-recurring consulting fees, one-time executive severance expense, and a gain on the sale of fixed assets.


(7)

Represents an adjustment to cost of sales in the Pipe, Tube and Conduit business to substitute an estimate of the current period, current market steel materials cost for the accounting cost, which is done on a FIFO basis. The Company believes this adjustment represents a more accurate view of the economic performance by aligning the relationship between pricing and steel cost in the same period. Use of the FIFO costing method, as we do in our GAAP accounting records, results in higher spreads when steel costs are rising and lower spreads when steel costs are falling. The difference may be significant and may result in distorted performance comparisons. The use of Adjusted Economic EBITDA eliminates a significant portion of this volatility.
