During the fourth quarter, the company expects the businesses will continue to benefit from several new product introductions along with increases in production rates and capacity.

The guidance continues to reflect another year of strong growth in adjusted operating earnings, as well as adjusted pretax earnings growth of 28% to 31%. On its last earnings call, it established its 2014 EPS, as adjusted, guidance of $2.25 to $2.35. Now, it is updating is guidance to a range of $2.30 to $2.35. Its plan reflects capital expenditures of approximately $140 million with a substantial portion directed at growth and profit-enhancing projects, including meeting capacity expansion requirements in each of its segments. Despite higher investment spending levels and a modest usage of cash for working capital, it plans to generate strong free cash flow for the full year in the range of $110 million to $135 million. It continues to target 2014 to be another year of strong earnings growth with outstanding cash flow generation. It is planning for a full year revenue growth in the mid-single-digit range with a solid improvement in operating margins.
