“Our Construction Industries and Energy & Transportation segments continue to improve.
Construction Industries had a good quarter with sales up 11 percent and operating profit up 83 percent from the second quarter of 2013. The improvement in Construction Industries, along with sales stability and record profit from Energy & Transportation, has helped us improve profit despite the downturn in the mining industry,” added Oberhelman.
The outlook for 2014 sales and revenues has been reasonably consistent with the preliminary outlook that was provided with the third quarter financial release in October of 2013. With half of 2014 now complete, we have tightened the outlook range for the year. The updated outlook for 2014 sales and revenues is a range of $54 to $56 billion. The previous outlook for sales and revenues was $56 billion in a range of plus or minus 5 percent
($53.2 to $58.8 billion). The range of expectations is tighter and the mid-point of the outlook is slightly lower. Most of the change in the mid-point of the range is in Construction Industries and reflects weaker sales in China, the CIS and in the Africa/Middle East region.
