The fiscal 2013 results included a reduction of approximately $.06 to $.07 per diluted share as a result of the disruptive weather in the fiscal fourth quarter, and the fiscal 2012 results were negatively impacted by Hurricane Sandy in the fiscal third quarter and included a benefit of approximately $.05 per diluted share as a result of an additional week in the fiscal fourth quarter.

The Company is modeling net earnings per diluted share to be approximately $.92 to $.96 for the fiscal first quarter of 2014, and to increase by a mid-single digit percentage for all of fiscal 2014.
