I guess the last comment about earnings being routinely low was correct. What I can't believe is that the stock has dropped $1 on the news. Is there something I am missing here? Doesn't beating earnings by 50% normally relate to an increase? Oh well, the fickle market I suppose.

HOPKINS, Minn., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovex, Inc. (Nasdaq: INVX) today announced record earnings for its second quarter ended March 31, 1997. Net income was $10,056,000 on revenues of $38,389,000. Net income increased $7,100,000 (240%) from $2,956,000 for the second quarter of last year. Net income per share was $.66 for the second quarter of fiscal 1997, compared with $.21 per share (split adjusted) for the same period one year ago. Second quarter revenues of $38,389,000 represented an increase of $23,715,000 (162%) over the $14,674,000 realized in the second quarter of fiscal 1996.

Revenues for the first two quarters of fiscal 1997 totaled $67,701,000 as compared with $27,786,000 for the first half of fiscal 1996. "This substantial increase in year to date revenues was the result of two principal factors," explained Thomas Haley, Innovex's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Litchfield Precision Components, which had not yet been acquired by Innovex as of second quarter 1996, contributed $8,200,000 in revenues for the first half of fiscal 1997. In addition, continued high demand within the disk drive industry, and in particular the shift to the multiple wire magneto- resistive (MR) recording heads, resulted in the need to significantly increase capacity within our Precision Products division. We expect this demand and the consequent capacity increases to continue to the point where Innovex will deliver 18 million wire sets per week by December of 1997, as opposed to the 11 million sets we are delivering now."

The second quarter of 1997 was also the first profitable quarter in the history of InnoMedica, Innovex's medical products division. "Although we do not expect InnoMedica to demonstrate overall profitability in fiscal 1997," observed Haley, "operations have progressed to the extent that we expect considerable improvement over the $1.5 million loss experienced in fiscal 1996."
