"Sun's second quarter sales reached record levels," said Allen Carlson, Sun's President and CEO. "Demand was bolstered by European and North American end markets, with Europe up 15%, and North America 10%. Asia/Pacific sales were comparable with the same period last year."

"As anticipated, second quarter earnings were affected by investments, including sales and marketing efforts in Asia and costs associated with our new facility," added Carlson. "These strategic investments support Sun's long-term profitable growth. Earnings were also impacted by non-recurring expenses in the quarter, totaling approximately $0.02 per share."

"We continue to make investments to bring new products to market," continued Carlson. "Earlier this year we expanded our offering of electrically-actuated cartridge valves. This quarter we also enhanced our automated integrated package design tool -- Quick Design. This tool is available on our website and allows customers to create custom integrated package solutions and receive designs in a matter of minutes. Product development efforts are on-going and we expect to release innovative products in the second half of the year."

Concluding, Carlson commented, "Demand in the first half of the year was strong. Estimated third quarter sales follow our normal seasonal pattern and show growth over the same period last year. The U.S. PMI released last week registered 57.1, which is the highest indication of growth in the manufacturing sector since April 2011. This represents positive near-term business conditions for Sun. We stand ready to capitalize on this growth and deliver value to our stakeholders."

Outlook
Third quarter 2014 revenues are expected to be approximately $55 million, up 11% from the third quarter of 2013. Earnings per share are estimated to be $0.36 to $0.38 compared to $0.32 in the same period a year ago.
