* Women Leaders Within General Cable: At General Cable, we value workforce diversity as essential to our business. Due in part to our expansive global presence, we are fortunate in having a diverse workforce, which brings different and important perspectives to our business, helping our company make decisions that benefit our customers, shareholders and associates around the globe. While the representation of women associates overall and women leaders more specifically is consistent with our industry, we are striving to increase the number of qualified women we hire, retain and promote to leadership positions, as we believe this will result in an even better run company and long-term competitive advantage. In 2012, over 25% of all of our global leaders, defined as managerial and professional employees, were women. We value the success of our existing women leaders and their significant contributions to General Cable. We recognize our business could be further enhanced through an increase in the relative number of woman associates and leaders, so we are publishing this data to monitor our progress.
