The 42.5% decline was attributed to a 32% decline in organic volume, 6% from weaker foreign currencies, primarily the euro, and 5% from reduced pricing related to lower commodity costs. The decline in organic volume was a direct result of reduced end-user demand caused by the global economic recession.

"As anticipated, we experienced a sequential quarterly decline in sales, which is a reflection of current economic conditions. However, as a result of our continued strong execution of our business plan, including our cost reduction efforts, we reported adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.23 for our first fiscal quarter, which exceeded our previous earnings guidance of $0.13 to $0.17 per share," said John D.

Recently, we have experienced stable incoming order rates, which lead us to believe that we may have reached the bottom of the declining order patterns we had been experiencing. Also, we ended our first quarter with cash and short term investments of $218 million, an increase of $55 million over the previous quarter end. Finally, our restructuring programs remain on schedule to achieve the targeted savings of $33 million per year when fully implemented."

Craig added, "Our second quarter guidance for non-GAAP adjusted net earnings per diluted share will be between $0.25 and $0.29, which excludes an expected charge of $0.06 per diluted share from our ongoing restructuring and acquisition activities."
