Atrion Reports Second Quarter Results

Posted: August 4, 2015 9:40 pm (UTC)

ALLEN, TX — (Marketwired) — 08/04/15 — Atrion Corporation (NASDAQ: ATRI) today announced that for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015 revenues totaled $37.7 million compared with $35.0 million in the same period in 2014. On a diluted per share basis, earnings for the period increased to $3.99 as compared to $3.48 in the same period of last year. Net income for the second quarter totaled $7.5 million compared to $6.9 million in last year’s second quarter.

Commenting on the Company’s results for the second quarter of 2015 compared to the same period last year, David A. Battat, President & CEO, said, “We are pleased with the 8% increase in revenues achieved despite flat sales of our ophthalmic products.” Mr. Battat added, “Operating income was up 8%, or approximately $863,000, while simultaneously investing an additional $519,000 in R&D compared to the same quarter in 2014 as we continue to place emphasis on expanding our product pipeline.” Mr. Battat continued, “Thanks to a 9% increase in net income and the progressive reduction in our share count during the past year, our earnings per diluted share in this quarter were higher by 15% over those of the 2014 period.” Mr. Battat added, “During the quarter, we returned to our stockholders $8.2 million through the repurchase of 24,897 shares of our common stock at an average price of $331 per share. At the end of the quarter our cash and short and long term investments stood at $31.6 million, down $1.0 million from the balance we held on March 31, 2015.” Mr. Battat concluded, “Exports account for 42% of our sales. To date, the effect of the strong U.S. dollar has been modest. Going forward, we anticipate a larger impact on our results. The Company’s top and bottom lines will continue to grow, but quarter-over-quarter comparisons will be more moderate over the next year. Confident of our continued strength, the Board of Directors has announced a dividend increase of 20% payable on September 30, 2015 to stockholders of record September 15, 2015.”
