For the full year of 2014, the company is lowering its guidance for 2014 capital expenditures from $75 million to $85 million down to $70 million to $80 million, primarily due to slower-than-expected timing of spending related to its previously announced manufacturing and distribution facility project. The company previously estimated that $5 million to $10 million would be expended in 2014, but the company now estimates that approximately $2 million to $5 million will be expended in 2014, with the balance to be expended in 2015 and 2016. The company continues to expect that depreciation and amortization will be between $80 million and $85 million.
