Seasonality Equipment sales for the Digital Printing and Enterprise segment and Graphics, within the Graphics, Entertainment and Commercial Films segment, exhibit higher levels in the fourth quarter (year ending December 2013) due to the seasonal nature of placements, resulting from customer or industry budgeting practices. Sales of entertainment imaging film within the Graphics, Entertainment and Commercial Films segment are strongest in the second quarter reflecting increased demand due to the summer motion picture season.
