persevering with momentum. After all, we did witness variations from group to group and inside the operations, however we consider the general outcomes are compelling. Fourth quarter gross sales of $1 billion, $155.9 million as reported, up 4.3% from 2021 included a considerable impression from unfavorable international foreign money of $37.7 million, a 370 foundation level headwind, and an natural gross sales improve of 8% over final yr, and that represented a 22.7% rise over 2019. This now represents the company’s tenth consecutive quarter above pre-pandemic ranges. It is a pattern of, I believe, some significance in unsure occasions like these.
From an earnings perspective, our opco working revenue for the quarter, together with the impression from unfavorable international foreign money, was $248 million, up 6.8% in comparison with 2021 and 44.7% above the 2019 pre-pandemic degree. The OI margin for the quarter, it was 21.5%, bettering by 50 foundation factors over final yr and 360 foundation factors over 2019. It is the identical resiliency that is been demonstrated through the years as we paid dividends each quarter since 1939 with no single interruption or discount. Actually, in November, our dividend was raised by 14.1%, marking the thirteenth straight yr of will increase. It is extra testimony of Snap-on’s constant efficiency by various environments. That is simply one other one in all them.
For Monetary Companies, working revenue of $63.9 million was down from the $67.2 million in 2021. That lower mirrored our forecasted return to extra historic provision ranges, however all whereas holding delinquencies flat to final yr. And our general quarterly EPS reached $4.42, $0.32 or 7.8% above 2021 and up 43.5% in contrast with 2019. Properly, these are the numbers.
Now to the markets. We consider that automotive restore stays very favorable. It is smart. The typical age of automobiles continues to extend. The complexity of repairs is rising steeply as new platforms enter the car PARC, and enter they’ve, beginning in dealerships. And we’ve got seen a resurgence in dealership initiatives regardless of a nonetheless recovering provide chain. Modifications in inner combustion, the rise of electrical automobiles, and the enlargement of auto autonomy have made dealerships keen for brand new tools to assist advanced restore duties of the evolving car PARC, and we see it.
Tasks and powertrains apart, dealerships proceed to see wholesome demand in restore, in upkeep and in guarantee, driving the necessity for store enlargement and extra technicians. You’ll be able to see it within the macros: restore spending, technician numbers, technician wages, all up. Our dealership section is increasing. And for our impartial restore retailers, confidence stays sky excessive throughout the board. Store house owners and managers affirm that demand for repairs, for technicians, and for advanced expertise are all rising, and our gross sales progress in that sector mirrors that enthusiasm. We consider we’re shifting into what might be known as the golden age of auto restore, and our Instruments Group and RS&I group are uniquely positioned with the product, the model, and the individuals to take full benefit, even within the midst of turbulence. You’ll be able to see it.
Now for the crucial industries, the place our Industrial & Industrial Group, or C&I operates. We proceed to see progress however the group spans vast jurisdictions. And as such, numerous headwinds throughout the geographies and the industries have attenuated a few of these positive factors. For geographies, Europe with the struggle and the reemergence of Brexit and China impacted by the COVID chaos have been a stark distinction to comparatively robust North American markets, quite a lot of variation. And the vary in variability amongst sectors additionally proceed to be a problem. Pure assets, heavy-duty fleets, normal industries and worldwide aviation have been sturdy, however the navy space stay challenged. Total, nonetheless, order demand for many of the crucial industries has been robust, and we consider that is an important sign for C&I’s future. So C&I does have challenges throughout the geographies and the segments, however we’ve got made developments, and we see alternatives for tomorrow.

Going ahead, we consider we’ll preserve shifting down our runways for progress, our vast runways for progress. And as we proceed, we’re additionally fortified, as all of you will have heard earlier than, by our Snap-on Worth Creation processes, security, high quality, buyer connection, innovation and fast steady enchancment, or RCI.

You see, our franchisees and our direct gross sales pressure possesses a strategic benefit, standing face-to-face with skilled techs, understanding their particular person challenges, showcasing the options created by our highly effective merchandise and demonstrating their use.
Our resilient markets do characterize a major alternative, and we’re there to take benefit, up shut and private, like nobody else, proper the place the roles are completed. And it is working. 2022 was a yr of considerable headwinds, however our crew prevailed, with the yr reaching new heights. Gross sales up $4 billion, $492.8 million, up 5.7%, reflecting an natural acquire of 8.7% in comparison with 2021 and a 20.2% natural improve versus 2019. The opco OI margin for the yr was 20.9%, up 90 foundation factors from ’21 and exceeding the pre-pandemic margins by 170 foundation factors. As reported, earnings per share for the yr have been $16.82, up 12.7% from ’21 and represented an increase of 35.5% from 2019. It is all proof of the decisive and ongoing momentum that marked the yr and the quarter.
Now the working teams. Let’s begin with C&I. Fourth quarter gross sales of $343.2 million for the group have been down $15.5 million versus final yr, together with $21.2 million in unfavorable foreign money and a 1.7% natural acquire. Our Specialty Instruments division was a transparent constructive with double-digit positive factors. Precision is turning into important day by day, and our torque merchandise are placing us proper in the course of that rise. Our crucial industries additionally confirmed power, particularly in North America, propelled by progress in pure assets, normal industries, and heavy responsibility, partially attenuated by decrease navy exercise.
Outdoors North America, it was a unique story. SNA Europe was down, and China was diminished. OI for C&I used to be $47.9 million, down $2.2 million primarily from the $2.3 million in unfavorable international foreign money. The group’s working margin was 14%. It was flat to final yr, however nonetheless represented an advance of 120 foundation factors over the pre-pandemic degree of 2019, and that was in opposition to 50 foundation factors of adverse foreign money and acquisition dilution.
The specialty torque enterprise inside C&I actually is making vital strides. Torque is scorching, and Snap-on has a widening array of latest choices to prominently take part in that pattern, merchandise like our new sequence of digital torque checkers. It is from our Norbar engineering crew. You would possibly bear in mind we acquired Norbar a couple of years in the past, our Norbar engineering crew in England, extra compact and simpler to make use of, it helps technicians validate the accuracy of torque devices near the office, saving quite a lot of time. Our new checkers accommodate torque measurements from 5-inch kilos to 1,500-foot kilos and wrenches from 1 / 4 inch to 1-inch, overlaying jobs from precision fasteners in a jet cockpit to a heavy-duty bolt on a large oil rig, a variety of functions. And its compact metal housing simply mounts in a wide range of handy places on the level of issuing or within the pathway of the workflow, like instrument cribs, aviation hangars and manufacturing cells, making torque checking a straightforward train.
With an accuracy of plus or minus 1%, our new checker will increase course of high quality with out work interruption, raises consistency in meeting exercise and with a streamlined documentation characteristic, drastically improves the administration of fastening in any software.

We are the first to market with the LED PowerTop, brightly lighting the gleaming Snap-on instruments like particular jewels as every drawer is accessed. It is fairly a sight.
