    arg Airgas, Inc. (NYSE: ARG)

    ARG (“Airgas”) recently reported sales and earnings growth for its third quarter ended December 31, 2012, which reflected the impact of continued economic uncertainty and moderation in business conditions on its diversified customer base. Results for the quarter also reflected the realization of SAP-related benefits as planned, tempered by slightly higher than anticipated implementation costs.

    Q3 earnings per diluted share were $1.05, an increase of 13% over prior year earnings per diluted share of $0.93. Excluding a net $0.01 benefit from certain lower-than-expected restructuring costs, adjusted earnings per diluted share* were $1.04, an increase of 7% over prior year adjusted earnings per diluted share* of $0.97.
