08:07 EDTBGCGeneral Cable confirms FY13 operating income guidance $300M-$340M
For the full year of 2013 assuming copper prices remain at relatively stable levels, the Company confirms its guidance for operating income in the range of $300 to $340 million on 1.4 to 1.5 billion metal pounds sold. However, the first quarter of 2013 is anticipated to be the weakest of the year as specific factors in Europe and Mediterranean and ROW are expected to impact results. Specifically, installation and construction related activities in the Company’s Europe and Mediterranean submarine turnkey project business are anticipated to be seasonally slow during the first quarter of the year and improving as weather permits in the spring and summer months. In ROW, the timing of a change in local statutory leave requirements in Venezuela, which resulted in an extended vacation period in the beginning of the year, is expected to burden first quarter results with minimal impact going forward. The Company expects sequentially better results in nearly all North American businesses and strong earnings contributions from acquisitions in the first quarter of 2013. Overall, the Company anticipates a sharp improvement in second quarter results as the construction season accelerates and these transitory items subside.

17:51 EDTBGCGeneral Cable reviews FCPA in four countries
General Cable disclosed the following in a regulatory filing from Sept. 22: "We have been reviewing, with the assistance of external counsel, certain commission payments involving sales to customers of our subsidiary in Angola. The review has focused upon payment practices with respect to employees of public utility companies, use of agents in connection with such payment practices, and the manner in which the payments were reflected on our books and records. We have determined at this time that certain employees in our Portugal and Angola subsidiaries directly and indirectly made payments at various times from 2002 through 2013 to officials of Angola government-owned public utilities that raise concerns under the FCPA and possibly under the laws of other jurisdictions. We also have been reviewing, with the assistance of external counsel, our use and payment of agents in connection with our Thailand and India operations, which may have implications under the FCPA. We have voluntarily disclosed these matters to the SEC and the DOJ and have provided them with additional information at their request. The SEC and DOJ inquiries into these matters are ongoing. We continue to cooperate with the DOJ and the SEC with respect to these matters. At this time, we are unable to predict the nature of any action that may be taken by the DOJ or SEC or any remedies these agencies may pursue as a result of such actions. We are implementing a screening process relating to sales agents that we use outside of the United States, including, among other things, a review of the agreements under which they were retained and a risk-based assessment of such agents to determine the scope of due diligence measures to be performed by a third-party investigative firm."
