Hurco Reports First Quarter Results -- Sales Up 92%, Orders Up 115% And Earnings Of $1.5 Million

INDIANAPOLIS, March 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hurco Companies, Inc., (Nasdaq:HURC) today reported for its first quarter ended January 31, 2011, net income of $1,546,000, or $0.24 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $1,836,000, or $(0.29) per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

Sales and service fees for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 totaled $39,680,000, an increase of $19,064,000, or 92%, from the first quarter of fiscal 2010. The effect of a stronger U.S. dollar when translating foreign sales to U.S. dollars for financial reporting purposes had a negative impact of approximately 5%, or $1,073,000, on the period-to-period comparison.

The following table sets forth net sales and service fees by geographic region for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 and 2010 (in thousands):
