For the fourth quarter of 2012, net sales were approximately $1.4 billion, net earnings were $66 million and EPS was $0.95; excluding unusual charges, net earnings were $70 million and EPS was $1.01.
 
Highlights: 
- Net sales up 34% over PY
- Adjusted EPS increased 77%
 
For the twelve months ending December 31, 2013, net sales were approximately $7.3 billion, an increase of approximately 27% versus the prior year or 26% on a constant exchange basis. Net earnings and EPS for the twelve month period were $349 million and $4.82, respectively. 
 
Excluding unusual charges and discontinued operations, net earnings were $473 million and EPS was $6.55, an increase of 73% over the twelve month adjusted EPS results in 2012. For the twelve months ending December 31, 2012, net sales were approximately $5.8 billion, net earnings were $250 million and EPS was $3.61. Excluding unusual charges, net earnings and EPS were $262 million and $3.78, respectively.
 
Commenting on Mohawk Industries' fourth quarter performance, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, Chairman and CEO, stated, "Our fourth quarter results were better than projected primarily as a result of higher top-line growth in our U.S. ceramic business, a strong performance from our Pergo acquisition and lower interest expense due to an upgrade in our credit rating. 
 
Our legacy net sales increased approximately 6% as reported, with additional revenue growth from our recent acquisitions. As a result of improved product mix, increased productivity and SG&A management, our adjusted operating income for the quarter rose 260 basis points from last year to approximately 10% of net sales and for the year improved by 250 basis points to 9.4% of net sales. We believe we are well positioned for both revenue and earnings growth in 2014."   
 
Carpet segment net sales for the quarter were $747 million, up 3% over last year, primarily due to strong performances of the Company's ultra-soft residential products and expansion of the polyester product line. Adjusted SG&A decreased both as a percentage of net sales as well as total expenses from cost reductions and improved execution.
