The company provided guidance for fiscal 2014 which is on a comparable basis to non-GAAP fiscal 2013 results adjusted for the unusual items and reflecting a 28% tax rate. In fiscal 2014, the company anticipates that net sales will increase approximately 12% to a range of $570 million to $575 million, gross margin will be approximately 54%, operating income will increase approximately 20% to $68 million and EBITDA will be approximately $80 million.

The company's guidance also assumes no unusual charges for fiscal 2014. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2014 are estimated to be approximately $19 million and includes the final costs related to the production of the new Basel Fair booths and Swiss corporate offices.
The company announced that the Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 for each share of the company's outstanding common stock and class A common stock. This dividend will be paid on April 16, 2013 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on April 2, 2013.
As for the expectation for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the company expects operating income to be slightly lower than last year, primarily due to a reduction in the gross margin rate as a result of the channel and product mix.
