The current quarter sales and pro forma net income were 4 percent and 15 percent, respectively; an increase compared with this year's third quarter results.
Incoming orders for the quarter were $165.6 million, an increase of 17 percent over the same quarter last year. For the fiscal year, bookings and sales were $640.5 million and $568.3 million, respectively, representing a 33 percent and 21 percent increase compared with last year. Net income for the year was $68.6 million, or $2.51 per diluted share, including the Lambda gain. Pro forma net income for the year was $36.3 million, or $1.33 per diluted share, which represents a 61 percent increase over the prior year's pro forma net income of $22.6 million, or $0.92 per diluted share. The prior year's pro forma net income excludes the $10.7 million after tax charge, or $0.44 per diluted share, for in-process research and development associated with the Star Medical acquisition.
