Atrion Reports First Quarter Results

ALLEN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Atrion Corporation (NASDAQ: ATRI) today announced diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2014 were up 10% to $3.61 as compared to $3.28 in the first quarter of 2013.

Atrion's revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 were $36,419,000 compared with $33,493,000 in the same period in 2013. Net income in the current-year quarter totaled $7,201,000 compared to $6,635,000 in last year's first quarter.

Commenting on the Company's results for the first quarter of 2014 compared to the same period last year, David A. Battat, President & CEO, said, "We are pleased with the significant increase in revenues, with solid growth in our cardiovascular and fluid delivery product lines. Overall, compared to the same quarter last year, revenues were up 9%, operating income was up 14%, and diluted EPS increased 10%. The EPS comparisons are skewed due to Congress's persistently inconsistent timing in extending R&D tax credits. Five quarters worth of R&D tax credits had to be recorded in the first quarter of 2013, while no credits could be booked in the just finished quarter." Mr. Battat added, "During the quarter we invested $4.7 million to purchase 15,142 shares of our common stock, while continuing to be debt free as well as having $55.0 million in cash and short and long term investments at the end of the quarter."

Atrion Corporation develops and manufactures products primarily for medical applications. The Company's website is www.atrioncorp.com.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
