The company projects the second quarter pro forma gross profit to be in the range of 41.5% to 42.5% of sales and the company anticipates the second quarter pro forma period expenses to increase to approximately 27% to 28% of sales, mainly as a result of lower customer reimbursements for certain development projects.

In addition, the company expects second half revenues for fiscal 2015 to be approximately 10% higher as compared to the first half of the current fiscal year. For the fiscal 2015, the company project pro forma tax rate to be approximately 28% and capital spending is forecasted to be approximately 3.5% of sales.
