Commenting on the first quarter, Robert B. Toth, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our Separations Media and Transportation and Industrial segments, which represent the majority of Polypore, delivered solid performance in the quarter. Sales in the Electronics and EDVs segment were challenging, with added pressure from customers carefully managing inventory in what was – for many – their fourth fiscal quarter of the year. Following a very weak January and February, we experienced improved order patterns in March and April and anticipate improving performance through the course of the year."
