(a) What level of growth does the Company expect for its Net Sales for the fiscal year 2015? (HINT: Refer to the details of press release, and think carefully about how the Company is describing its sales!) The net sales are actually projected to be -1% to 1% based off of the prevailing exchange rate impacting sales growth. The Company expects that sales will increase 4 to 6% in constant currency. Based on year-to-date results and prevailing exchange rates, the company continues to anticipate that currency will lower this sales growth range by 5 percentage points. (b) Would the management guidance for fiscal year 2015’s net sales be likely interpreted by investors as an improvement or a deterioration in the Company’s performance, relative to 2014? Deterioration relative to 2014. Consumer business sales declined 3% when compared to the second quarter of 2014. In constant currency, the company grew sales 3%, mainly due to increased volume and product mix. Industrial business sales rose 1% when compared to the second quarter of 2014, and in constant currency the increase was 7%. Pricing actions taken in response to higher material costs, as well as higher volume and product mix, contributed to the increase. In addition, acquisitions added 1 percentage point of the year-on-year growth in the second quarter.
