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.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
