“Achieving record sales and earnings in the current economic environment is a testament to our successful strategy and operating discipline. We continue to shift our portfolio through acquisitions and internal investments toward high-technology industrial markets such as offshore energy, high-end digital imaging and analytical and electronic test and measurement instrumentation. While we are not immune to the world-wide economic conditions and global austerity, our balanced sources of revenue have moderated the effects of regional economic contractions,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Year-to-date, we have made four acquisitions in such strategic areas as marine and electronic test and measurement instrumentation, as well as a majority investment in Optech Incorporated, which is part of our Digital Imaging segment. Finally, earlier this week, we successfully executed $200 million of term loans to provide us availability on our revolving credit facility and additional financial flexibility.”
