  • GAAP operating margin from continuing operations of four percent for the quarter, unchanged from the same period last year.
  • GAAP net income from continuing operations of $751,000 for the quarter, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a net income of $688,000, or $0.04 per diluted share for the same period last year.
  • Non-GAAP operating profit and net income are measures the Company uses to reflect the results of its core earnings. The Company's reporting of Non-GAAP net income excludes expenses for restructuring, gain or loss on sale of assets, legal settlements and related expenses, stock based compensation, amortization and impairment of intangible assets and goodwill related to the Company's acquisitions, and non-cash related income tax expense.
