ALLEN, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 31, 2013) - Atrion Corporation (
Atrion's revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 totaled $32.6 million compared with $30.7 million in the same period in 2012. On a diluted per share basis, earnings for the period increased to $3.22 as compared to $3.02 in the same period of last year. Net income for the second quarter totaled $6.5 million compared to $6.1 million in last year's second quarter.
Commenting on the Company's performance for the 2013 second quarter compared with the same period last year, David A. Battat, President and CEO, said, "As anticipated, sales of ophthalmic products showed a substantial increase in the quarter, with operations returning to full capacity as our customer's inventory adjustment cycle is now fully behind us. Cardiovascular products, and our "other" products category, primarily non-medical valves for the aviation and marine industries, both performed well with each showing a 7% increase in sales. Fluid delivery products were slightly below last year's level reflecting weak markets outside North America where a large share of this business originates." Mr. Battat added, "During the quarter we increased our cash and long and short term investments by $4.2 million after repurchasing 8,762 shares of stock at a cost of $1.9 million." Mr. Battat concluded, "Our commitment to organic growth is reflected in continued increases in spending on Research and Development, and higher depreciation charges for the expanding base of capital equipment needed to support future product introductions. Despite these ongoing increases, we expect double-digit growth in EPS for 2013."
