Adjusted net operating profit was USD 164.1 million for the nine months increased USD 12.1 million, or 8%, compared to the prior corresponding period, primarily due to the underlying performance of the operating business units as reflected in the USD 27.8 million increase in adjusted EBIT, partially offset by an increase in adjusted income tax expense of USD 9.0 million, other expense of USD 5.3 million and gross interest expense of USD 1.8 million. Net sales for the quarter and nine months were favorably impacted by higher volumes and a higher average net sales price. The increase in the sales volume for both the quarter and the nine months compared to the prior corresponding periods, was primarily driven by further market penetration and modest growth in the repair and remodel market segment. The primary drivers for net cash provided by operating activities are the payment to the fund and some working capital. The company expects the performance in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 to be consistent with the results for the first nine months of fiscal 2015. However, there is uncertainty due to the continued variability in the short term economic outlook, housing activity and changes in the prices of its raw material inputs. Management notes the range of analysts' forecasts for net operating profit excluding asbestos for the year ending March 31, 2015 is between USD 210 million and USD 222 million. Management expects full year adjusted net operating profit to be between USD 210 million and USD 222 million assuming, among other things, housing industry conditions in the United States continuing to improve and that an average exchange rates at or near current levels are applicable for the remainder of the fiscal year. The company is unable to forecast the comparable US GAAP financial measure due to uncertainty regarding the impact of actuarial estimates on asbestos-related assets and liabilities in future periods.
