The company's CEO, Michael Doar, said, "The results for the quarter were good considering the market softness we have experienced in North America, especially since we know from historical data that it is typical for customers to delay purchases prior to the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). Our global presence in Europe and Asia continues to provide strong contribution to our overall business, despite the negative impact of foreign currency translation."

The stock ended Thursday's trading at $27.96 gaining 3.52 percent.
