"We are pleased by the strong overall results of the first quarter. Both revenue and profitability were near the high end of our expectations due to record revenue and gross margins from our Probes segment. Favorable product mix drove the best overall gross margins for the company in over nine years, and cash grew $6 million quarter on quarter. Our new acquisitions performed well, and we continue to see improved market acceptance and sales of our new products. With a strong Q1 behind us, we are optimistic about the rest of 2014," said Michael Burger, President and CEO.

Financial outlook

For the second quarter of 2014 we are projecting revenue in the range of $32.0 million to $35.0 million with diluted GAAP earnings per share in the range of $0.05 to $0.10, and non-GAAP earnings per share in the range of $0.08 to $0.13. Our guidance assumes a tax rate of 37%, consistent foreign currency rates and no significant one-time charges.

We will host a conference call beginning at 2:00 p.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. EDT) on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, to discuss our results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in this release regarding performance of our new acquisitions, improved market acceptance and sales of our new products, our optimism about the rest of 2014, and statements under "Financial Outlook" regarding projected revenue, GAAP earnings per share, and non-GAAP earnings per share, and other statements identified by terminology such as "will," "should," "expects," "estimates," "predicts," and "continue" or other derivations of these or other comparable terms are "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of the Securities Litigation Reform act of 1995. Such statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company's business based in part on assumptions made by management. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements due to numerous factors, including: changes in demand for the Company's products; changes in product mix; potential delays and other factors affecting the timing of new product introductions; the timing of shipments and customer orders; constraints on supplies of components; excess or shortage of production capacity; potential failure of expected market opportunities to materialize; changes in foreign exchange rates; our ability or delay in integrating acquired businesses; and other risks discussed from time to time in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. In addition, such statements could be affected by general industry and market conditions and growth rates and general domestic and international economic conditions. Such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's earnings release contains Non-GAAP financial measures which are defined below and reconciled to GAAP financial measures in a table later in this release:

  • Non-GAAP net income is defined as GAAP net income before certain items (adjustments) such as restructuring, facility move and project costs, acquisition-related expenses, the amortization of intangibles and discrete tax items that we believe are either not representative of our ongoing operating performance or effect the comparability of results over time. Non-GAAP net income should not be construed as a substitute for net income as defined by GAAP. However, we regard non-GAAP net income as a complement to GAAP net income in assessing our financial performance over time and in the future.

  • Adjusted EBITDAS is defined as income from continuing operations before depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation and certain other items (adjustments) such as restructuring, facility move and project costs, and acquisition-related expenses that we believe are not representative of our ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDAS should not be construed as a substitute for net income from continuing operations or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities (all as determined in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of analyzing our operating performance, financial position and cash flows, as adjusted EBITDAS is not defined by GAAP. However, we regard adjusted EBITDAS as a complement to net income from continuing operations and other GAAP financial performance measures, by including an indirect measure of operating cash flow.
