Subject: Utility Cable Products Price Adjustment – Effective April 1, 2013

Dear Valued Customer:

Prices for key raw materials used in the manufacture of low and medium voltage distribution cables are increasing. Examples of key supplier letters are attached for your convenience. In addition, other costs continue to escalate, for example freight and fuel, reels, packaging, and conversions costs, all of which impact all products.

Effective April 1, 2013, General Cable will increase prices an average of 3-5% for medium voltage utility cable, an average of 2-4% for low voltage and covered distribution cable, and an average of 2-4% for bare aluminum cable. As always, the exact percentage of the increase is specific to each cable construction.

  • Current backorders as of the date of this letter will be honored at the previously agreed upon prices.
  • Prices for new orders accepted by General Cable prior to the close of business on March 29, 2013, for immediate shipment from available inventory will be honored at the prices in effect at the time of order acceptance.
  • Prices for new orders accepted by General Cable prior to the close of business on March 29, 2013, yet scheduled to ship on or after April 1, 2013, will be at the new prices in effect as of April 1, 2013.
  • All open quotations for shipment on or after April 1, 2013, will be subject to review and price adjustment prior to order acceptance.
  • For new orders received up to and including March 29, 2013, General Cable reserves the right to accept orders based on historical monthly order volume.
