This conference is being recorded at the request of Worthington Industries. If anyone objects, you may disconnect at this time.

I'd like to introduce Ms. Cathy Lyttle, Vice President of Corporate Communications and Investor Relations. Ms. Lyttle, you may begin.

Cathy M. Lyttle - VP of Corporate Communications and IR: Thank you, Rochelle. Good afternoon and welcome to our third quarter earnings conference call. Certain statements made on this call are forward-looking within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Please refer to our third quarter earnings release issued this morning. For more detail on those factors that could cause actual results to differ materially. For anyone interested in listening to this call again, a replay will be made available on our Company website, worthingtonindustries.com.

On the call today are John McConnell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; Mark Russell, President and Chief Operating Officer; and Andy Rose, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

John will get it started.

John P. McConnell - Chairman and CEO: Well, thank you Cathy and good afternoon everyone. We appreciate you joining us today. Again in this quarter we're very happy with performance of our business and we are very proud of our employees who continue to drive Worthington Industries to new heights. Andy and Mark are both prepared to walk through the quarter in more detail. We'll get start with Andy.

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: Thank you, John and good afternoon everyone. The Company's performance in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was quite good once again led by strong earnings growth in Cylinders, improved margins in our steel company and higher earnings from our joint ventures. Quarterly earnings per share of $0.52 were up $0.15 from the prior year or 41% and represents a record for Worthington's fiscal third quarter, something we are all very proud off.

Inventory holding losses were nominal during the quarter as they were in the prior year period. Volume growth was mixed in the third quarter. Cylinder volumes were essentially flat year-over-year, but this metric is becoming less and less meaningful as we add much larger and lower volume tanks to our portfolio in energy and alternative fuels.

Steel Processing direct volumes were up 3% while toll volumes declined 26%. Excluding the planned wind down of volumes from the MISA Metals acquisition, steel direct volumes were up 6% while toll volumes declined 22%, mostly attributable to our Spartan joint venture. Spartan volumes are down over the last year due to our partner moving business to their in-house galvanizing facility as expected. Volumes have stabilized and the business remained solidly profitable.

Engineered Cabs business continues to be soft due to production declines at its largest customer. The business generated $4.7 million of EBITDA during the quarter before including corporate allocations and the fiscal year, and for the fiscal year is expected to be only 15% to 20% below the run rate when we acquired the business in December 2011.

Mark Russell will elaborate on a number of positive developments in the business and why the future prospects of the Cab segment are good. Equity income from our joint ventures during the quarter was up 2% over last year to $26 million, driven by increases at TWB, Serviacero, ArtiFlex and WAVE as compared to last year. All of our major joint ventures operated at a profit during the quarter and we received dividends of $21 million.

Free cash flow for the quarter was nominal due to the acceleration of the third and fourth quarter dividend payments into December 2012 and a modest increase in working capital. The Company invested $10 million in capital projects and distributed $27 million dividend to shareholders. There were no repurchases of stock during the quarter.

Debt decreased by $14 million during the quarter. Our balance sheet remains strong. At quarter-end we had total funded debt of $438 million and $489 million available under our revolving credit facilities. We recently extended our receivable securitization for a two year term and reduced its size by $50 million to $100 million primarily because we have ample access foreign capacity on both of our credit facilities.

As I mentioned, the Company paid its March and June 2013 dividend payments on December 28, 2012. The Company will next consider declaring regular dividends at its June 2013 board meeting for payment in September. The first few months of calendar 2013 are off to a good start. The integration and financial performance of Westerman, our entry into the oil and gas energy production space, exceeded our expectations. We are already investing in new capacity for this business in anticipation of strong growth over the coming years. We also have a number of other acquisition and expansion opportunities that we are exploring.

Our 12 month trailing EBITDA at the end of February was over $310 million we are well positioned to finish the fiscal year strong and we are busy executing our multi-pronged growth strategy composed of base business improvement via the centers of excellence, acquisitions of new products and entry into new markets and accelerated organic growth from product development and innovation.

I'll now pass the call to Mark Russell, who will discuss operations.

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: Thanks Andy. Many of you may have seen the recently released MSCI industry data that’s helpful context for looking at our results. It shows that the overall steel flat-rolled market is fairly even with relatively stable volume and pricing, manageable mill capacity utilization and reasonable lead times for most products.

Automotive is still our biggest market and has shown relatively steady demand, building and construction has shown signs of life though still much more on the residential side than commercial. Agriculture has been steady on the equipment side weaker on the infrastructure side.

Large earth moving and mining equipment demand is still on correction we've seen continued evidence of destocking there.

When viewed against those backdrops we think the results in our steel company continue to show the strength of our data-driven and accountability focused transformation approach with continued sourcing and inventory discipline, operational efficiency and commercial excellence driving earnings growth in this core business.

Our transformation approach is yielding similar results in Cylinders which has formed their own excellence team as steel has done previously. Driving improvements in their base business as well as the newly acquired entities.

The continued strong growth of Cylinders has driven us to a notable milestone in the history of Worthington. Since 1955 the steel company has been Worthington's largest entity by all key measures.

But the growth of Cylinders has been so significant that we now have more capital employed in the Cylinders business than in the steel company. And Cylinders has more growth prospects from the horizon especially in the energy production and alternative fuels markets.

Sales in the alternative fuels market surpassed $18 million this quarter, up 25% year-on-year. Sales growth in energy production is of course off the charts since it's a new segment for us. Energy production and alternative fuels will continue to be among our best growth ideas and will be a focus area for Michael Luh and our centers of excellence team. Michael recently came to us from Procter & Gamble where he co-founded P&G's clay street partner's innovation engine. Expect to hear more from us in future quarters about the things we are doing to further accelerate our growth in this rapidly expanding markets.

Engineered Cabs is responding to the current environment and reduced customer demand and inventory correction. We have a plan that we are implementing, first by reducing costs without sacrificing production capacity. We are also taking advantage of this environment as it enables us to drive the transformation effort there faster and further than we could otherwise much as we did in the steel company during the depths of the recession several years ago.

The centers of excellence team is wrapping up the diagnostic and mobilization phase of the transformation process in our Greeneville, Tennessee facility and will shortly kick-off at the flagship operation in Watertown, South Dakota. We are already seeing initial transformation improvements on several fronts in Engineered Cabs, which match or exceed those we saw at this stage in Steel or Cylinders.

John, back to you.

John P. McConnell - Chairman and CEO: Well, thank you both for your overview of the quarter. And why don't we just get right to your questions.

Transcript Call Date 03/21/2013

Operator: (Martin Englert, Jefferies & Company).

Martin Englert - Jefferies & Company: In December saw a modest pick-up in flat rolled steel prices, it looked like the quarterly average was up a bit. Also when you look at the direct versus tolling that continues to increase there as you noted. Can you talk about the impact that that has had on the operating income per ton within the steel segment and how you would expect that to trend with the direct versus tolling mix in the future quarters?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: I think the biggest impact there is just going to be related to a shift in mix direct versus toll and you may have heard us mention, one of our facilities, a joint venture facility at Spartan, we've seen a decline in volume as our partner there has built a line of their own and has taken some of that volume in-house. That's probably the biggest driver there. I would not expect that trend to continue just because we've seen volume stabilize in that facility. I think our bias is that there may be some opportunity for those volumes to actually start to go back up, probably not immediately to the level where they were, but I would think that the trend would be somewhat stable from here on out, depending on the mix of toll versus direct.

Martin Englert - Jefferies & Company: Are you able to provide any other detail within Cylinders where you look among the different end user there within retail, industrial and alternative fuels as far as year-over-year growth rates and volumes?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: We have not historically broken those end markets out. Although, we did last year during in our 10-K, we broke out the revenue by segment, and I can't remember actually if we broke out the volume by segment or not. I'm guessing we probably didn’t. But we are starting to, we'll likely do that again at the end of this fiscal year as we are starting to somewhat change the way we manage the business internally in Cylinders as those businesses grow and expand. So we can't give you any detail now is the short answer, but we'll likely give you some more detail in our next quarter's announcement.

Martin Englert - Jefferies & Company: If I could one more question. When you think about the business units as a whole now, heading into this construction cycle versus the last can you talk about do you leverage your opportunity there what kind of exposure you think you have?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: I would say we have -- still have a fair amount of leverage there. We still own 25% of the metal framing business as you know that business is making money once again which is a good thing. We still have exposure in our steel company I think our sales exposure there is around 11% now if I'm not mistaken but that used to represent over 20% of the steel company's volumes so there is significant upside there in the steel business and then obviously WAVE is a commercial construction business as well. The interesting thing that’s happened to WAVE in the downturn is their business mix has shifted to 80%, potentially even a little bit higher of remodel, as opposed to new construction, but when new construction comes back, we would expect WAVE to benefit from that as well.

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: Construction is traditionally our second largest market and if we were a three or four cylinder engine we've been running on half, one cylinder down basically and when construction comes back it should give us substantial upside. In all the businesses that Andy mentioned. It could also impact cylinders with benefit in rural areas where they are using propane as a primary fuel source as new housing picks up, so will the usage of those system tanks.

Operator: Arun Viswanathan, Longbow Research.

Arun Viswanathan - Longbow Research: Congrats on the quarter. Great performance in this environment as John said. May be I just wanted to get a little bit more detail on the guidance. You said that you expect a good quarter. Obviously the environment's a little different than it was last year this time, but can you give us a little bit more detail? I mean in that quarter you saw Cylinders up to 24 million tons, was there, I guess, some seasonality there and what are you expecting in the next quarter for Cylinders and as well as processor?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: Unfortunately we don't give guidance. I think the one thing I can say – detailed guidance I should say. What we've said here is maybe a couple of things; one is, seasonally the fourth quarter is our strongest quarter anyway and I think with the number of the initiatives related to transformation as well as some of the new additions in terms of our M&A activity, our businesses is performing relatively well compared to maybe what the general economy is seeing and as a result we expect a pretty solid quarter, but beyond that we're not going to give any detailed guidance.

Arun Viswanathan - Longbow Research: I guess another question I have was on SG&A. It appears that it was a little bit higher than what I expected especially in Cylinders. Was that just a function of a slightly different mix and do you expect that to come down in future quarters as you get further along in the transformation? I think in the past you've noted that you were in maybe 5 out of 14 sites you've gone through transformation, where do you stand on that and do you expect future SG&A declines in Cylinders?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: The SG&A increase is attributable to a couple of things. One, is we're a profit sharing company, so improved performance in that business segment is driving higher compensation expense. Secondly, acquisition activity is adding SG&A there. And with respect to whether we expect it to come down, to be honest without going and looking at some detailed numbers, I can't give you a good feel for that.

Arun Viswanathan - Longbow Research: How far along are you in the transformation I guess in the different segments maybe on a percent basis or how much further along do you have to go?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: We're still less than half way through in cylinders, and as they continue to acquire, we're going to – at this rate we're going to stay half way down, because they continue to add locations at a fairly rapid (rate).

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: And the way we approach transformation is we go plant by plant and spend about 8 to 10 weeks at each facility and I believe they just kicked off their fifth facility in Cylinders and I think we're up to 15 or 16 locations right now. So, we've got ways to run in that business and here Mark mentioned in his comments, we're in the second ready to go the third facility in Cabs.

Arun Viswanathan - Longbow Research: If I can, just one last question, on the M&A side, you said that there are still some good opportunities. What are you seeing there, what can we expect, is it likely to be more bolt-ons in some of these targeted areas like alternative fuels and so on, or what are you looking at and what do you see the environment right now?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: The strategy in Cylinders has been and will continue to be to look for new products new geographies and also to concentrate market positions where it makes sense. But overall what we are trying to do is acquire in higher growth end markets. So energy alternative fuels and also acquire higher margin businesses and typically in Cylinders we find that the margin profiles of a lot of these companies are attractive, we can buy these businesses at reasonable prices. There is almost always synergies we can plug them into our global sales force, there may be steel purchasing synergies because we are a large buyer of steel, and then we can drive our transformation through which is going to enhance the operating performance and potentially working capital. So the combination of all of those things make that an attractive market for us to continue to consolidate. In terms of the size I wouldn't expect to see us do $1 billion transactions for a couple of reasons. One, we don't like that risk profile. We're not a bet the ranch, kind of company, but then secondly, there just really aren't any huge cylinder acquisitions out there, I shouldn’t say there aren’t any there is probably a few, but most of the industry is relatively small and fragmented. So it's a good structure for us to consolidate.

Operator: Aldo Mazzaferro, Macquarie.

Aldo Mazzaferro - Macquarie: I just wonder if you could help throw out a little bit of the seasonal pattern in your business, and if it's changed since history. I heard you say through fourth quarter is strongest. Second quarter, third quarter, first quarter could you give us a little feel for how those compare?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: I would say the fourth quarter has traditionally always been the strongest and I would expect it will continue to be our fiscal first quarter, which is June, July, August is typically the second strongest I would say that's likely to continue. The two that are somewhat flip-flopping a little bit are the second and third quarter. You heard us mention this was the highest earnings per share ever for our fiscal third quarter. I actually was just looking at this earlier today. For the last three or four years that's generally been the case, although it's been rough sliding a little bit because of the downturn et cetera, so there's been a lot of noise in the system. If you go back beyond that, typically the second quarter was our third strongest and then the third quarter was sort of the laggard if will. That may be flip-flopping. It may be too early to tell. I guess we need a few more data points I think to sort of determine effects from it…

Aldo Mazzaferro - Macquarie: So it sounds like this quarter you just reported was easily your weakest or your second weakest quarter seasonally?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: That's, as Andy said, that effect is diminishing as we get bigger and have more areas of focus. What drove traditionally in the steel company was automotive shutdowns typically in July and end of year shutdowns and then the seasonality of some of the demand for cylinders products and then the building construction season in the northern latitudes and all those things are more muted at least there are a smaller proportion than it used to be.

Aldo Mazzaferro - Macquarie: Can you ask another question on the automotive, well actually your alternative fuel sales, can you say what type of customers are driving that 25% increase, is it the big auto companies or is it other users?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: Our biggest customers are automotives for that and we provide the cylinder for the Honda Civic natural gas version. We're working with the other automakers for some existing special products and as well as OEM products. So that's a market with huge potential growth in front of us.

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: The biggest driver of the market today though is the commercial vehicle market as opposed to the consumer market as you would have a sense. You don't see a ton of natural gas vehicles being driven by consumers, but you are seeing more and more driven by the fleet vehicles at least today.

Aldo Mazzaferro - Macquarie: I read an article that said that even locomotives are considering natural gas driven…

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: Anything with wheels moves most cheaply and cleanly on natural gas.

Aldo Mazzaferro - Macquarie: Locomotives and long haul trucking would require cryogenic tanks though?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: The long haul trucks do use cryogenic tanks, it is true.

Operator: Michelle Applebaum, Steel Market Intelligence.

Michelle Applebaum - Steel Market Intelligence: I know I have always said that. I think saying congratulations is auspicious but it's at least impressive to see this kind of a quarter with almost not contribution from Cabs. And this time of year, and what's going on the federal market, so really nice job, really terrific job. I had a technical glitch for a second, I didn't really hear, have you talked much about Cabs and what you are going to do and what's going on there? I'm trying to figure out, is the problem entirely what's happening in the end market one customer or is there other things going on?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: There is a couple of things that make this confusing, one is, well, first of all, as it relates to the market, it's principally concentrated in their largest customer. They have seen softness with a few other customers but there are also customers particularly on the Ag side where demand is still very robust and so it’s a little bit of mixed picture. But their largest customer which is well publicized has seen, has excess inventory and some slowdown in demand and so that’s really what's driving somewhat of the slowdown there. The other thing that makes this confusing is this is a business that you we acquired was performing at a certain level we immediately because of the way accounting works add corporate overhead onto it that’s not necessarily related to the business. We also applied purchase accounting, which adds to the expense of the business and so what appears to be a business that is making no money for us is actually quite cash flow positive and that's one of the reasons I called out in my speech the EBITDA level for the quarter because it is contributing, it is absorbing some corporate overhead and it is a cash flow positive business, it's underperforming there is no question from where we bought it. But it's not maybe the disaster that it might seem if you just look at a business it's not making any money.

Michelle Applebaum - Steel Market Intelligence: What are your plans, you talked about last time that you could work on cost and that kind of thing there, but you are concerned about doing too much there because you might miss an upturn? What are your feelings since the last call?

John P. McConnell - Chairman and CEO: That’s exactly what we will do we have already reduced the variable costs accordingly, we're not going to reduce our productive capacity. So that we're ready when this gets sorted out. Part of which was an inventory correction and you can see that in reported results of the customers we're talking about, they not only have a slowdown in the markets there and particularly in the markets for mining equipment and large earthmoving equipment. But there's also a lot of inventory in the pipeline that needed to get worked out. That's happening and when it get sorted out we expect the business to come back.

Michelle Applebaum - Steel Market Intelligence: Any idea of timeframe?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: We couldn't predict that. All we can say is the same thing that you can see, which is it is working itself out and if you look at their numbers you can see it is getting worked out. And you can do your own extrapolation on that but it is working itself out and when it's done it will come back.

Michelle Applebaum - Steel Market Intelligence: Overall result I think is, that's what we're looking for, so given the level of performance you are really knocking the cover off the ball. So, great job.

Operator: Richard Garchitorena, Credit Suisse.

Richard Garchitorena - Credit Suisse: So first question is on the Pressure Cylinders. I know Andy mentioned that realized price is higher related to larger units. So are this quarter's pricing and unit volumes, is that a good indication of what are expected to be going forward or you are going to see continued sort of increasing prices as you further build out Westerman that type of thing?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: That's a very difficult question to answer, Richard, just because we now have such a broad mix of different products. I mean we have tans that sell for $2 and we have tanks that sell for $200,000. So it's really depending on the mix in any given quarter. It's going to really drive your unit costs there and I guess your unit price is I think is what you referenced. So, I think we are migrating up. I think that trend as long as you see us continuing to do more in some of the energy and alternative fuels segments, you will see that, those numbers continue to creep up. But again, quarterly fluctuations can also impact that. That's why one the comments I made related to Cylinders volumes and I think somebody asked a question earlier about can we break out volumes by segment, that's something we've contemplated just because it's – the total volume number in Cylinders is just getting complex and really doesn't really tell you anything.

Richard Garchitorena - Credit Suisse: But I guess, when you look at the margins, they've improved form Q1 to Q3, by a full percentage point, that really is a function of what Westerman has added, would you say?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: It's a couple of things. Westerman is going to be part of that. There has also been, the Cylinders team has done a good job of bringing down some of their manufacturing cost, particularly their input cost. You've also seen some reduction in SG&A related to the corporate side of things as other businesses have grown etcetera, so I think it's a combination of a number of factors.

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: In simple terms and the broadest terms, it's a function of showing that we're succeeding within our primary goals, which would increase our margins and decrease our volatility. And that's where our focus is and that's what we hope you continue to see in the results.

Richard Garchitorena - Credit Suisse: Then a follow-up, CapEx this quarter was – it was just under $10 million, and I think around June of last year you had guided to a number close to $70 million of CapEx, so – but for the fourth quarter, do you see another step-up in CapEx or has that changed at all?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: I think our current number for the year, I'd look at somewhere between $50 million and $55 million. I was telling somebody the other day, when we budget CapEx, for the four years that I have been here we've always overshot. I think partly this year it's attributable to there was some CapEx in the cap segment that we dialed back because of the performance and I think in some of our other businesses we've just been less aggressive about spending it so. I'd use kind of 50 to 55 number for the year.

Richard Garchitorena - Credit Suisse: My last question could you just give us your general sense, I guess obviously a lot of us with the data on ABI and the commentary around potential recovery. Generally speaking with WAVE and the other businesses that have some exposure to that. Do you sense this year is any different than last year or is it still very cautious optimism. I guess is the way to put it?

John P. McConnell - Chairman and CEO: That’s exactly how I would put it Richard, I mean cautious optimism. You see a lot of healthy signs out there. The residential and multifamily strength is well underway now and the question now turns to commercial. You see the same ABI numbers that we do. So there is some evidence of some activity there. It's cautiously optimistic I'd say.

Operator: Mark Parr, KeyBanc.

Mark Parr - KeyBanc: Well, I was wondering in the Cylinder side can you give some color on the alternative energy market and how much growth you are achieving and whether you are seeing opportunity for further acceleration or a stabilization of growth over the next couple of quarters?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: Mark, the answer is unequivocally yes on both fronts. We are seeing obviously the growth in M&A, which you can see and we'll continue to look for opportunities there, but also you are going to see more organic here. This is where we're putting a lot of our energy and our focus. We have two different cryo prototypes working at the moment and we are looking at every opportunity we have there and there are just a lot of them. So it's a fast growing market and we're very focused on it.

Mark Parr - KeyBanc: Are you seeing the – on profitability of that business you have come in in line with the overall business or – overall Cylinders business or is there much of the difference there between?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: Yes, there is and it's higher and that's why we are focused on it so we can increase our margins there, it's definitely higher.

Mark Parr - KeyBanc: I had another question. Just curious, because your volume numbers in the steel business seemed meaningfully greater in terms of momentum than the service center data for the three months in your quarter. Just curious, has there been – where the specific areas of strengths are, where are the strongest areas that you are seeing or maybe you are avoiding some of the areas that have been particularly weak like plate markets and OCTG market, so just if you could give a little color on the end market momentum in the steel business?

Mark A. Russell - President and COO: I can do that. I saw your commentary on the MSCI numbers and I agree with your characterization of those. It was pretty flat and compared to it, we look a little stronger. I would characterize that as – based on two things, one is I think that our profile does match the markets that are stronger a little bit better or a little bit more exposed to those than the rest of the market is, and then, two, I think we're managing things very adeptly, commercially in the Steel business. We have a discipline commercially there that we didn't have in years passed, and at that approach, our approach commercially in the steel business has been transformed and I think you see in the numbers.

Operator: John Tumazos, John Tumazos Very Independent Research.

John Tumazos - John Tumazos Very Independent Research: As consider acquisitions and higher demand and had the nice title from the other company, a lot of businesses are hard to predict any more. I have a fertilizers, nitrogen fertilizer stock where the Chinese are selling knocking down the Mid-western nitrogen fertilizer price and you wouldn't expect to have Chinese competition in that aspect of manufacturing. In the non-ferrous metals last year, Chinese output was up 18%. Businesses are hard to predict and you have $525 million of equity other than goodwill and intangibles and almost $500 million of debt and other long term liabilities. How much would you let your debt rise to make acquisitions?

B. Andrew Rose - VP and CFO: The way we think about that John, is we are focused on maintaining our investment grade credit rating. That's one of the metrics which you know that puts us, kind of at 2.5 times debt to EBITDA multiple. Again you heard me mention earlier we're not trying to be the next leverage buyout and get as maximum amount of leverage. We want to have a modest amount of leverage and we want to have a lot of liquidity. We have been through downturns in the past and we have been able to capitalize on those opportunities, because we are not overleveraged and we have a lots of liquidity. So that philosophy continues to be part of the way we approach M&A and will continue to be that way going forward. The good news is when you buy companies and they perform you generate additional cash flow, which enables you to pay down that debt very quickly and the last couple of acquisitions that we've done, we've been able to pay them off in a quarter or less. So the fact that we're generating good solid cash flow you know we bought Westerman back in I believe September. We paid $70 million and you know we've already paid off all the debt we used to buy that business. So again we'll take a relatively conservative approach try and be somewhat systematic in terms of buying two or three businesses a year, integrating them well, make sure they are running well and then move onto the next one.

Operator: Thank you and there are no further questions in queue.

John P. McConnell - Chairman and CEO: Thank you all again for joining us. We believe the overall economy and the markets we serve will continue to improve in non-linear fashion and I look forward to a quarter I don’t have this tag line, so long as our nation's growth economy does not suffer a significant shock resulting in retraction. We currently do not see such an event on horizon but we'll continue to operate as Andy just went through with close attention to our balance sheet. That said we will also continue to pursue acquisitions we believe will help us meet our overall objectives of increasing our margins while a decreasing the volatility of our earnings. We are making clear progress on both fronts. Again thank you for joining us. We look forward to talking to you reviewing our full fiscal year 2013 in May or in June. Thank you.
