“We are pleased with our 2013 financial results, which demonstrate solid operational improvement and another step toward our 2015 targets,” said Jim Owens, president and CEO. “In the midst of a major business integration and weaker than expected end-market conditions in some key markets, our team delivered solid results. We delivered record revenue and grew organically for the fourth year in a row with stronger organic growth at the end of the year. We significantly improved our EBITDA margin toward our strategic target of 15% and delivered another year of record earnings per share.”
