Patrick C. Lynch, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "We ended the year in a strong financial position, with a cash balance of $90.5 million. Orders were up 4.6% on a consolidated basis in the fourth quarter, with strength in the U.S. and decent improvements in Europe and Asia.
While the impact of the fire at our Australia plant remains difficult to quantify, we believe the diminished level of business in the country negatively affected operating income in the range of $2.5 million to $3.5 million in the fourth quarter. Our consumer business, FLOR, ended the quarter with a healthy year-over-year increase in sales, a consequence of robust retail store expansion in 2012. In addition, our China plant swung from a loss to a profit during the quarter, as its production volume ramped up to support our Australia business.
