Management Discussion

Excluding the unfavorable impacts from foreign exchange and copper, our results reflect organic sales decline of 1.3%. The current quarter had 65 billing days compared to 64 billing days in the prior year period. Excluding the favorable impact from the extra billing day, adjusted daily sales decreased 2.8%. In addition, the first quarter of 2020 also reflects gross margin of 20.1%, up 20 basis points from the prior year.
