Our earnings are estimated to be within the range of $2.50 and $2.75 per diluted share, and revenues are estimated to be within the range of $625 to $660 million. We continue to build upon the success we have been able to achieve over the past decade, and continually strive to further enhance the performance of the Company. Electrical revenues are projected to be up due to the full year impact of NLI as well as organic growth. Margins in the Electrical Segment should be in the range of 14 to 16 percent. The Galvanizing Services Segment revenues are projected to be up due primarily to the full year impact of our acquisitions and market share improvement. Margins for this Segment should remain strong, and should be in the range of 26 to 28 percent. It is anticipated that 57 percent of our revenues will be derived from the Galvanizing Services Segment and 43 percent from the Electrical and Industrial Products Segment. Further information is provided in our Form 8-K to be filed on January 18, 2013."
Mr. Dingus continued, "Our next, regularly scheduled quarterly conference call is in April 2013, where we will be reporting the operating results for our fourth quarter and 2013 fiscal year and a discussion of our Fiscal Year 2014 guidance. We are continuing our efforts to seek out growth and expansion opportunities for both Segments. The strength of our balance sheet and cash position fully supports this strategy. The company is well positioned to capitalize on improving market conditions, in both segments."
