Peter J. Gundermann, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We experienced another strong quarter achieving record sales and also had bookings that were our second highest ever. Operating income for the quarter was solid even though we incurred increased engineering and development activity and an increase to our warranty and inventory reserves. These items added $4.3 million of expense to the quarter compared with the prior year period. Last year’s third quarter benefitted from an unusually low 11% tax rate.”
