Second Quarter 2014 Results: 
Net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $20.5 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, versus net income of $25.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in last year's second quarter. Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2014 were $0.781, up 16 percent versus the prior year's adjusted result of $0.671. 
 
Net revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $544.0 million, up 4.8 percent versus the second quarter of 2013. Higher volume and positive foreign currency translation positively impacted net revenue growth by 4.8 and 0.3 percentage points, respectively. Lower average selling prices negatively impacted net revenue growth by 0.3 percentage points. Organic revenue grew by 4.5 percent year-over-year.
 
Gross profit margin was down approximately 200 basis points versus the prior year's result due to a variety of factors including excess costs associated with the business integration project in Europe and Project ONE "go-live" in North America, a temporary spike in the cost of certain raw materials in Europe, margin compression on certain products in our Construction Products business and adverse foreign currency exchange effects in Australia.  SG&A expense was up only about 3 percent, or $2.6 million, versus the prior year's second quarter, despite absorbing unplanned and non-recurring costs related to Project ONE in North America.
