Goodwill and intangible assets were primarily impacted by changes in the foreign exchange rates used to translate goodwill and intangible assets of foreign subsidiaries. Intangible assets were additionally impacted by immaterial acquisitions of Medistad Holding BV, a European manufacturing entity and SoloHill Engineering, Inc., a United States (“U.S”) technology company in the first and second quarters of fiscal year 2014, respectively.
Amortization expense from continuing operations for intangible assets for the three and six months ended January 31, 2014 was $4,655 and $9,379, respectively. Amortization expense from continuing operations for intangible assets for the three and six months ended January 31, 2013 was $4,857 and $10,135, respectively. Amortization expense is estimated to be approximately $9,296 for the remainder of fiscal year 2014, $17,011 in fiscal year 2015, $15,744 in fiscal year 2016, $15,662 in fiscal year 2017, $15,493 in fiscal year 2018, and $13,170 in fiscal year 2019.

The Company’s shares may be purchased over time as market and business conditions warrant. There is no time restriction on these authorizations. In September 2013, the Company entered into an Accelerated Share Repurchase (“ASR”) agreement with a third-party financial institution to repurchase $125,000 of the Company’s common stock. This transaction was completed in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014. Under the agreement, the Company paid $125,000 to the financial institution. Upon completion of the transaction, the Company received a total of 1,573 shares with an average price per share of $79.45.
In December 2013, the Company entered into a second ASR agreement with a third-party financial institution to repurchase $125,000 of the Company’s common stock. Under the agreement, the Company paid $125,000 to the financial institution and received an initial delivery of 1,249 shares at an aggregate cost of $106,250, with an average price per share of $85.05. These shares were included in treasury stock in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of January 31, 2014. The remaining $18,750 was included in additional paid in capital in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets as of January 31, 2014. The December 2013 ASR agreement will be settled during the third quarter of fiscal year 2014. The final number of shares delivered upon settlement of the December 2013 ASR agreement will be determined with reference to the average price of the Company’s common stock over the term of the ASR agreement.
During the six months ended January 31, 2014, 694 shares were issued under the Company’s stock-based compensation plans. At January 31, 2014, the Company held 18,298 treasury shares.

NOTE 5 – CONTINGENCIES AND COMMITMENTS
With respect to the matters described in Note 14, Contingencies and Commitments, to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s 2013 Form 10-K and below, the Company has assessed the ultimate resolution of these matters and has reflected appropriate contingent liabilities in the condensed consolidated financial statements as of January 31, 2014 and July 31, 2013.
The Company and its subsidiaries are subject to certain other legal actions that arise in the normal course of business. Other than those legal proceedings and claims discussed in the 2013 Form 10-K and this Note, the Company is not facing any other legal proceedings and claims that would individually or in the aggregate have a reasonably possible material adverse effect on its financial condition or operating results. As such, any reasonably possible loss or range of loss, other than those legal proceedings discussed in the 2013 Form 10-K and this Note, is immaterial. However, the results of legal proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty. If the Company failed to prevail in several of these legal matters in the same reporting period, the operating results of a particular reporting period could be materially adversely affected.

Environmental Matters:
With respect to the environmental matters at the Company’s Pinellas Park, Florida site, previously disclosed in Note 14, Contingencies and Commitments, to the Company’s consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s 2013 Form 10-K, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection approved the remedial action plan in September 2013. As a result of this, the Company added $4,440 to its environmental reserves in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014.
The Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet at January 31, 2014 includes liabilities for environmental matters of approximately $21,402 which relate primarily to the environmental proceedings discussed in the 2013 Form 10-K and as updated in this Note. In the opinion of management, the Company is in substantial compliance with applicable environmental laws and its current accruals for environmental remediation are adequate. However, as regulatory standards under environmental laws are becoming increasingly stringent, there can be no assurance that future developments, additional information and experience gained will not cause the Company to incur material environmental liabilities or costs beyond those accrued in its condensed consolidated financial statements.

(1) Restructuring:
In fiscal year 2012, the Company announced a multi-year strategic cost reduction initiative (“structural cost improvement initiative”). This initiative impacts both segments as well as the Corporate Services Group. The goal of this initiative is to properly position the Company’s cost structure globally to perform in the current economic environment without adversely impacting its growth or innovation potential.
Key components of the structural cost improvement initiative include:
the strategic alignment of manufacturing, sales and R&D facilities to cost-effectively deliver high-quality products and superior service to the Company’s customers worldwide,
creation of regional shared financial services centers for the handling of accounting transaction processing and other accounting functions,
reorganization of sales functions, to more cost-efficiently deliver superior service to the Company’s customers globally, and
reductions in headcount across all functional areas, enabled by efficiencies gained through the Company’s ERP systems, as well as in order to align to economic conditions.
Restructuring charges recorded in the three and six months ended January 31, 2014 and January 31, 2013 primarily reflect the expenses incurred in connection with the Company’s structural cost improvement initiative as discussed above.
(2) Other (Gains)/Charges:
Severance benefits and other employment contract obligations: In the three months ended January 31, 2013, the Company recorded charges related to certain employment contract obligations.
Professional fees and other: In the three months ended January 31, 2014, the Company recorded acquisition related legal and other professional fees. In the three and six months ended January 31, 2013, the Company recorded settlement related costs as well as legal and other professional fees, related to the Federal Securities Class Actions, Shareholder Derivative Lawsuits and Other Proceedings (see Note 14, Contingencies and Commitments, in the 2013 Form 10-K). The receipt of insurance claim payments partly offset these costs for the six months ended January 31, 2013.
Environmental matters: As discussed in Note 5, Contingencies and Commitments, in the six months ended January 31, 2014, the Company increased its previously established environmental reserve related to a matter in Pinellas Park, Florida.

NOTE 7 – INCOME TAXES
The Company’s effective tax rates on continuing operations for the six months ended January 31, 2014 and January 31, 2013 were 22.8% and 18.1%, respectively. For the six months ended January 31, 2014, the effective tax rate varied from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to the benefits of foreign operations. For the six months ended January 31, 2013, the effective tax rate varied from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to the benefits of foreign operations and a net tax benefit of $7,757 primarily from the resolution of a U.S. tax audit partly offset by the establishment of deferred tax liabilities for the repatriation of foreign earnings.
During the six months ended January 31, 2013, the Company reached a final agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) resolving the outstanding tax positions for fiscal years ended 2006 through 2008. As a result, the Company reversed $10,193 of previously recorded liabilities related to tax and penalties, as well as $6,704 related to interest ($4,268 net of income tax cost) that were accrued but not assessed as part of the IRS agreement.
At January 31, 2014 and July 31, 2013, the Company had gross unrecognized income tax benefits of $211,463 and $203,376, respectively. During the six months ended January 31, 2014, the amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits increased by $8,087, primarily due to tax positions taken during the current period and the impact of foreign currency translation partially offset by the expiration of various foreign statutes of limitation. As of January 31, 2014, the amount of net unrecognized income tax benefits that, if recognized, would impact the effective tax rate was $163,188.
At January 31, 2014 and July 31, 2013, the Company had liabilities of $20,767 and $18,622, respectively, for potential payment of interest and penalties.
Due to the potential resolution of tax examinations and the expiration of various statutes of limitation, the Company believes that it is reasonably possible that the gross amount of unrecognized tax benefits may decrease within the next twelve months by a range of zero to $66,183.

Subsequent to the balance sheet date, the Company received official notification of the resolution of a tax audit in the United Kingdom related to fiscal year 2010. This will result in the recognition of previously unrecognized income tax benefits of approximately $8,000 and a reversal of interest of approximately $1,000 in the Company’s third fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2014.

NOTE 10 – EARNINGS PER SHARE
The condensed consolidated statements of earnings present basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share is determined by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share considers the potential effect of dilution on basic earnings per share assuming potentially dilutive shares that meet certain criteria, such as those issuable upon exercise of stock options, were outstanding. The treasury stock method reduces the dilutive effect of potentially dilutive securities as it assumes that any cash proceeds (from the issuance of potentially dilutive securities) are used to buy back shares at the average share price during the period. Employee stock options and restricted stock units aggregating 506 and 1,254 shares were not included in the computation of diluted shares for the three months ended January 31, 2014 and January 31, 2013, respectively, because their effect would have been antidilutive. For the six months ended January 31, 2014 and January 31, 2013, 921 and 1,175 antidilutive shares, respectively, were excluded. The following is a reconciliation between basic shares outstanding and diluted shares outstanding:

NOTE 11 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The Company records certain of its financial assets and liabilities at fair value, which is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.
The current authoritative guidance discusses valuation techniques, such as the market approach (comparable market prices), the income approach (present value of future income or cash flow), and the cost approach (cost to replace the service capacity of an asset or replacement cost). Authoritative guidance utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The following is a brief description of those three levels:
Level 1: Use of observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Use of inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, which are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3: Use of inputs that are unobservable.

NOTE 13 – DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES
The Company manages certain financial exposures through a risk management program that includes the use of foreign exchange derivative financial instruments. Derivatives are executed with counterparties with a minimum credit rating of “A” by Standard & Poors and “A2” by Moody’s Investor Services, in accordance with the Company’s policies. The Company does not utilize derivative instruments for trading or speculative purposes. As of January 31, 2014, the Company had foreign currency forward contracts outstanding with notional amounts aggregating $477,156, whose fair values were a net asset of $2,829.
Foreign Exchange Related:
a. Derivatives Not Designated as Hedging Instruments
The risk management objective of holding foreign exchange derivatives is to mitigate volatility to earnings and cash flows due to changes in foreign exchange rates. The Company and its subsidiaries conduct transactions in currencies other than their functional currencies. These transactions include non-functional intercompany and external sales as well as intercompany and external purchases. The Company uses foreign exchange forward contracts, matching the notional amounts and durations of the receivables and payables resulting from the aforementioned underlying foreign currency transactions, to mitigate the exposure to earnings and cash flows caused by the changes in fair value of these receivables and payables from fluctuating foreign exchange rates. The notional amount of foreign currency forward contracts not designated as hedging instruments entered into during the three and six months ended January 31, 2014 was $607,273 and $1,181,442, respectively. The notional amount of foreign currency forward contracts outstanding that were not designated as hedging instruments as of January 31, 2014 was $369,219.
b. Cash Flow Hedges
The Company uses foreign exchange forward contracts for cash flow hedging on its future transactional exposure to the Euro due to changes in market rates to exchange Euros for British Pounds. The hedges cover a British subsidiary (British Pound functional) with Euro revenues and a Swiss subsidiary (Euro functional) with British Pound expenses. The probability of the occurrence of these transactions is high and the Company’s assessment is based on observable facts including the frequency and amounts of similar past transactions. The objective of the cash flow hedges is to lock the British Pound equivalent amount of Euro sales for the British subsidiary and the Euro equivalent amount of British Pound expenses for the Swiss subsidiary at the agreed upon exchange rates in the foreign exchange forward contracts. The notional amount of foreign currency forward contracts designated as hedging instruments entered into during the three and six months ended January 31, 2014 was $54,767. The notional amount of foreign currency forward contracts outstanding designated as hedging instruments as of January 31, 2014 was $107,937 and covers certain monthly transactional exposures through February 2015.
c. Net Investment Hedges
The risk management objective of designating the Company’s foreign currency loan as a hedge of a portion of its net investment in a wholly owned Japanese subsidiary is to mitigate the change in the fair value of the Company’s net investment due to changes in foreign exchange rates. The Company uses a JPY loan outstanding to hedge its equity of the same amount in the Japanese wholly owned subsidiary. The hedge of net investment consists of a JPY 9 billion loan.
