Speaking at a Conference Call, Chip Brewer, President and CEO, said: “The Q3 operating result is still generally within the expectations we provided at the end of Q2. Secondly, our outlook for the balance of the year has softened based on lower expectations in the U.S. and Europe, and thus, we are lowering guidance for the balance of 2012. I believe we are making good progress on our turnaround plan, where I believe we are moving quickly, decisively and on the right path.”
