For the 12 months ended December 31, 2006, sales increased 21.4% to $689.5 million, up from $568.1 million in 2005. North American Glass sales increased 30.6% to $476.7 million for the year. The increase in sales was primarily attributable to the consolidation of the sales of Crisa, the company’s former joint venture in Mexico, increases of more than 6% in shipments to foodservice glassware customers, and increases of over 9% to retail glassware customers. Shipments to industrial customers were down 7% during 2006.
