Improved sales volume and higher pricing led to the revenue increases in response to higher input costs. Access Equipment segment sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 were unfavorably impacted by $20 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Access Equipment segment operating income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 increased 203.7 percent to $116 million, or 10 percent of sales, compared to $38.2 million, or 4.6 percent of sales for the three months ended December 31. The increase was primarily because of higher pricing and higher sales volume, offset in part by higher material and logistics costs and higher production costs.
