"We are very excited by the recent acquisitions of RTP on July 31, 2013
and ATT Systems on October 1, 2013, and how we believe these moves
will accelerate our strategic plans and expand our markets," said
Michael Burger, President and CEO. "In addition, our third quarter
results achieved revenue within our guidance range, a book-to-bill in
excess of one-to-one, and a 47.6% gross margin. After adjusting for
the acquisition related expenses discussed above, our adjusted EPS
for Q3 2013 exceeded the upper end of guidance. Finally, with a
positive book-to-bill and good momentum, we believe we are well
positioned for the fourth quarter of 2013 and beyond."  
Financial outlook 
For the fourth quarter of 2013, assuming consistent tax and foreign
currency exchange rates, we are projecting revenue to be in the range
of $34.0 million to $38.0 million including RTP and ATT Systems.
Before restructuring and acquisition transactional costs which are
estimated between $0.3 million and $0.4 million, and the incremental
amortization expenses related to the ATT Systems acquisition which
are currently estimated between $0.6 million and $0.8 million,
earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.17 to $0.21
per share on a fully diluted basis. As previously announced,
approximately 1.6 million shares were issued on October 1, 2013 in
conjunction with the acquisition of ATT Systems and the final
purchase accounting determination is underway which may adjust the
expected amortization listed above. 
We will host a conference call beginning at 2:00 p.m. PDT (5:00 p.m.
EDT) on Wednesday, October 30, 2013, to discuss our results for the
quarter ended September 30, 2013.
