midpoint of the range, at $3.55, represents a 7% increase in EPS. 
"We're off to a slow start in 2013," said John Scannell, CEO. "The
weakness in the major economies around the world is affecting our
industrial business. On the other hand, the aircraft market is
strong. We have moderated our forecast for the year slightly but we
are still projecting growth in both sales and earnings in 2013,
despite the headwinds in our industrial markets."
