Pugh, CEO. “While we do not expect significant economic improvement during the fourth quarter, based on our results to date and the continued strength in our operational controls, we expect fiscal 2008 sales to be within the lower range of our previously issued guidance of $2.10 billion to $2.18 billion.”
