Net income for the year jumped 24.5 percent to $250 million. Net sales (referred to as turnover in TTI's statement on its results) totaled $4.3 billion, up 11.6 percent from fiscal 2012, owing to the company's "continued investment in new products delivering double-digit sales growth in all geographic regions," according to the statement.
