Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

In the news release issued on November 1, 2012, the Registrant issued its expectations for fiscal year 2013 diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.06 to $3.16. Key assumptions supporting the 2013 diluted earnings per share range are: revenue growth in the 6 percent to 9 percent range; operating income growth in the 3 percent to 5 percent range; an operating margin decline in the low double-digit basis points range; and free cash flow in the range of $750 million to $850 million, which includes capital expenditures in the $180 million range. The Registrant also announced that, subject to market conditions, it expects to spend approximately $200 million to repurchase its common shares in fiscal year 2013.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

The Registrant also announced that it is pursuing the sale of AndersonBrecon, its contract pharmaceutical packaging business, so that the Registrant can focus on its distribution, specialty and manufacturer services business. Income from AndersonBrecon has been classified as income from discontinued operations, and represented $0.04 of the total $2.80 of diluted earnings per share in fiscal year 2012.

In addition, the Registrant announced that its Board of Directors approved a 62% increase in its annual dividend rate. The Registrant also approved a new $750 million share repurchase program.
