“Solid sales growth in the Americas, with declines in EMEA and Asia-Pacific, reflect industrial markets that remain uneven around the world,” Keith D. Nosbusch, chairman and chief executive officer, said. “Given our first half results and our expectation that sluggish market conditions will persist, we are lowering our fiscal 2013 sales outlook to a range of $6.25 to $6.45 billion,” he said.
