Both operating segments performed well during the fiscal year with revenue improvements shown in each operating segment. Overall, revenue increases in the Canadian segment accounted for the increase in fiscal 2013 revenues. Product mix improvements in both operating segments drove consolidated gross profit as a percentage of sales and increased to 47% compared to 45% in the prior year. The year-over-year improvement in net earnings was largely due to improvements from the Lowell operating segment whereas Canada net earnings remained relatively flat as compared to fiscal 2012 due to an increase in income tax expense.
