Share Repurchase Program
The Company announced the Board of Directors has authorized a new share repurchase program of up to $250.0 million. This share repurchase program replaces the Company’s prior share repurchase authorization, and may be limited, suspended or terminated at any time without prior notice. Stock repurchases under this program may be made through open market transactions, negotiated purchases or otherwise, at times and in such amounts as management and a committee of the Board deem appropriate. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, financing and regulatory requirements and other market conditions. Repurchases may also be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit shares to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws.

Financial Guidance
The Company issued full year 2012 guidance for net sales and earnings per share. It currently expects net sales for 2012 to range from $1.60 billion to $1.65 billion. It currently expects EPS for 2012 to range from $3.80 to $3.95 per diluted share. The Company noted its expectations are based on information available at the time of this release, and are subject to changing conditions, many of which are outside the Company’s control. The Company noted its EPS guidance does not assume any benefit from a potential reduction in shares outstanding related to its share repurchase program.
