Peter J. Gundermann, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The fourth quarter was a good one in many ways. We again achieved record revenue, margins were strong, orders were brisk, and we acquired Ballard, a leading designer and producer of avionics databus solutions for the aerospace industry. However, we had our share of disappointments during the quarter as well. We learned recently that the United States Air Force decided to cancel the VDATS procurement, which contributed to the $2.5 million write-down of goodwill and intangible assets in our test systems business. Additionally, the bankruptcy filing of American Airlines led to a $500,000 receivable reserve.”
