INCOME ANALYSIS:

A reconciliation of currency adjusted proforma to reported net income and diluted earnings per share can be found in tabular form in the Supplemental Financial Information section on page 11.

Reported diluted EPS for 2008's third quarter of $.64, which includes a $.07 benefit from currency exchange rates, increased 18.5% over the $.54 reported for 2007's third quarter.

Gross profit, S,G&A expenses and operating and pretax income, all expressed as a percentage of sales, and the effective tax rate (income tax expense expressed as a percentage of pretax income), for the third quarters and first nine months of 2008 and 2007, were as follows:

Operating income 23.3% 22.4% 23.0% 22.7%

Pretax income 22.7% 21.2% 22.4% 21.5%

Effective tax rate 33.3% 33.0% 32.0% 30.2%
