Koch continued, "2020 was a year of significant accomplishments, despite the challenges of operating during a pandemic. Entering 2021, we are optimistic that we can build on our positive momentum, accelerate into the global recovery and deliver on Vision 2025. We will continue to benefit from the strength of the Carlisle business model, and enhance our strong earnings power by investing in our exceptional management teams and high-ROIC businesses. We will continue to deploy capital into strategic acquisitions, share repurchases and dividends, all the while maintaining our commitment to delivering returns on invested capital in excess of 15% and, ultimately, driving to $15 of earnings per share."
