Cost of goods sold and SGA represents a growth of 13.7% and 9% respectively. Operating income for the Q4, 2017 came in far better than in the prior year at $20,6 million. This was an increase of 47% versus Q4, 2016 when the company's operating income was $14 million. The improvement in operating income was primarily due to the absence of other operating expenses (which the company incurred in Q4, 2016) related to the divestiture of the Roll, Plate, and Machinery (RPM) business in the Engraving segment. The improvement in quarterly operating income was partially offset by restructuring costs of $2.7 million which SXI incurred during Q4, 2017. In Q4, 2016 the company also recorded $7.3 million non-cash loss to adjust the net assets of this business to their net realizable value.
