-Severe winter weather negatively impacted customer demand and resulted in over $1.5 million of unanticipated expenses in the quarter, primarily for energy, logistics and maintenance.
 
-Gross profit was $49.1 million with margins increasing to 21.7% in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to $49.0 million, or 19.5%, a year ago. The margin improvement was due to favorable product mix.
