With peak season planning well underway we wish to seek your
customary support with our proposed List Price/New Product

to the trading partners concerned.
List price adjustments
Our price adjustment moratorium will commence on Monday

2015 and first effective date post the moratorium is Monday
latest date to confirm any pricing adjustments for 2015 is Friday
2015, allowing the standard 6 weeks lead time for implementation
prior to the moratorium period taking effect.
