This increase was due to decreased depreciation of $51 million, sales volume increases, which increased gross margin by $37 million, currency movements of $27 million, customer price increases of $25 million, $4 million directly related to acquisitions and decreased pension expense of $1 million, partially offset by unfavorable productivity, net of benefits and labor inflation, of $36 million, and increased materials and services sourcing costs of $28 million.
