The increase included 5 percentage points from volume, 1 percentage point from price and 1 percentage point from acquisitions, partially offset by a 1 percentage point decline from unfavorable foreign exchange, 1 percentage point decline from lower sales of seasonal products and a 1 percentage point decline from the timing of the July 4th holiday in the United States, the supplier of commercial maintenance, repair and operting products said in a release.

The month of July 2013 had 22 selling days versus 21 selling days in July 2012.
