LAKE MARY, Fla., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FARO Technologies, Inc. (FARO) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Sales in the second quarter of 2012 increased 11.8% to $66.8 million, from $59.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. The Company reported net income increased by 11.8% to $4.7 million, or $0.28 per share, in the second quarter of 2012, from $4.2 million, or $0.25 per share, in the second quarter of 2011.

New order bookings for the second quarter of 2012 were $71.0 million, an increase of 13.6% from $62.5 million in the second quarter of 2011.

"We had strong results in Asia and the Americas with sales increasing by 28.8% and 17.4%, respectively, over the second quarter of last year. Despite a sluggish and uncertain European economy, sales in Europe increased 9.4% when measured in Euros. However, due to the strengthening of the US dollar, European sales showed a modest decline of 2.9% when translated to US dollars," stated Jay Freeland, FARO's President and CEO. "Net income grew at the same pace as revenue even after absorbing considerable expenses related to litigation, the completion of FCPA monitoring activities and the unfavorable effect of exchange rates."
