Fourth-quarter 2001 results included net non-recurring pretax charges of $3.4 million (on an after-tax basis, $2.0 million) primarily for closure of a manufacturing facility in Chino CA, realignment of the company's North American sales force, and a provision for certain post-retirement health care costs for terminated employees, partially offset by the reduction of other accrued expenses.
