For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $1,098.2 million compared to $1,121.5 million a year ago. Operating income was $107.3 million compared to $87.6 million a year ago.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.61 compared to $0.55 a year ago. Diluted EPS from continuing operations increased to a record $0.61 per share, up 10.9% compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.55 for the prior third quarter. Cash flow from operations for the quarter of $121.1 million compared to $160.0 million for third quarter of 2013, reflecting generally higher levels of working capital associated with higher raw material costs, increased inventory levels, and higher selling prices. Capital expenditures for the third quarter were about $43 million. For the nine months, the company reported net sales of $3,290.8 million compared to $3,391.3 million a year ago. Operating income was $309.2 million compared to $256.0 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $276.9 million compared to $211.7 million a year ago.

Capital expenditures were $113 million. For the fourth quarter of 2014, the company expects adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $0.53 to $0.58. In anticipation of the sale of the Pressure Sensitive Materials business segment, management established new guidance for continuing operations. Management expects adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $2.26 to $2.31 for the full year 2014. Considering the results of discontinued operations, management's new full year guidance range is consistent with the middle of its previously stated full year guidance range. Management revised the guidance for total year 2014 cash from operations to reflect inflation, the timing of the Pressure Sensitive Materials divestiture, and generally higher levels of working capital expected to support new product commercialization and strong customer demand for value-added products. Full year 2014 cash flow from operating activities is expected to be in the range of $375 million to $400 million. This range is slightly ahead of last year but below previous full year guidance. Management continues to expect the effective income tax rate for the full year 2014 to be approximately 34.5% and total year 2014 capital expenditures to be approximately $175 million.
