        under "Supplemental Information and Notes to Non-GAAP Financial
        Measures" in the tables following the text of this release.

Consolidated sales were 10.4% lower in the quarter when compared to the prior year period, of which 7.5 percentage points, or $20.3 million, were due to the adverse effects of currency on the translation of foreign sales into U.S. dollars. The balance was attributed to customers' inventory reductions in both healthcare and consumer goods markets and regulatory interruptions at customer facilities.

Consolidated gross profit margin was 28.6% in the quarter, compared to 30.8% in the first quarter of 20
