Based on a continuation of current market conditions, for the fiscal 2013 third quarter the company expects net sales to be between $597 million and $609 million reflecting flat average daily sales growth at the midpoint. Excluding non-recurring costs related to the co-location of the Company's headquarters in Davidson, North Carolina and the effects of the pending acquisition of BDNA, including non-recurring transaction and integration costs, the company expects adjusted diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 to be between $0.95 and $0.99. Guidance reflects the existing soft demand environment and the lack of a mid-year price adjustment. The company expects the non-recurring costs related to the co-location of the company's headquarters to have a $0.01 impact on its GAAP diluted earnings per share in the fiscal third quarter. The company expects third quarter tax rate to be about 38.2%. The company expects gross margin for third quarter to be in the range of 44.9%, plus or minus 20 basis points.
The company expects CapEx in fiscal year 2013 to be elevated and likely to be in the $100 million range, driven by infrastructure investments of nearly $50 million in Davidson and Columbus combined, in addition to increased investment related to vending program. In the absence of pricing actions, gross margin tends to decline as the company progress throughout the year.
