West Announces Third Quarter 2009 Results
Date:11/3/2009

erly improvement in material costs in 2009 because the benefit of lower market prices for petroleum products through the first half of the year was delayed until the current quarter under the terms of West's purchase agreements for certain materials. Those improvements were partially offset by $2.5 million of higher depreciation costs and $1.2 million of increased labor costs.

Pharmaceutical Systems SG&A costs were substantially unchanged in the third quarter compared to the 2008 period, and as a result were lower as a percentage of the higher sales.
