Operating income increased for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014 primarily as a result of the positive impact of the higher sales and related improvement in fixed manufacturing cost coverage with higher production volumes, partially offset by the impact of lower variable margins due to relative changes in customer and product mix as well as increased personnel costs and depreciation within Security Products. Income before taxes was $13.7 million compared to $9.2 million a year ago.
