Brady also expects a full-year income tax rate in the mid-to-upper 20% range and capital expenditures of approximately $35 million in fiscal 2015. Earnings from continuing operations per diluted Class A Nonvoting Common Share, exclusive of restructuring charges and other non-routine charges guidance remains unchanged at $1.50 to $1.70. However, due to the strengthening of the US dollar against other major currencies, the company anticipates that its full-year fiscal 2015 results will finish at the low end of this range. This guidance is based on current exchange rates. The company expects a full year income tax rate in the mid- to upper 20% range.
