ALLEN, TX -- (Marketwired) 08/06/14 -- Atrion Corporation (NASDAQ: ATRI) today announced that for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 revenues totaled $35.0 million compared with $32.6 million in the same period in 2013. On a diluted per share basis, earnings for the period increased to $3.48 as compared to $3.22 in the same period of last year. Net income for the second quarter totaled $6.9 million compared to $6.5 million in last year's second quarter.

Commenting on the Company's results, David A. Battat, President & CEO, stated "I am pleased with our performance in the second quarter. Compared to the same period of last year, operating income was up 8% while sales were up 7%, reflecting growth in our fluid delivery and cardiovascular products of 13% and 7%, respectively. Net income was up 6%, despite a tax rate 4% higher than in the comparable 2013 quarter largely due to government inaction on the renewal of R&D tax credits." Mr. Battat added "Our increased R&D expenditures reflect an ongoing effort to expand our product portfolio."

Mr. Battat added "During the quarter we devoted much effort and expense to travel and legal work related to potential acquisition or collaboration targets. Due to concerns about valuation, we did not conclude any transaction. We remain highly disciplined in our approach to all investments. Consistent with this approach, we intend to scale down acquisition efforts while we wait for valuations of privately held companies to reach levels that offer a more attractive return on capital." Mr. Battat concluded "In the second quarter, we spent $7.3 million to repurchase 23,512 shares of our stock. Compared to the first quarter of 2014, second quarter buybacks were higher by $2.6 million while payments for estimated taxes were up by $7.7 million. Despite these substantial increases in cash utilization, we ended the quarter with cash and marketable securities of $51.7 million."
