Quoting Management: Deepak Chopra, OSI Systems President and CEO, stated, “We are pleased to announce the results of our fourth quarter, as we finished the year strong, positioning us well for future growth. We achieved record non-GAAP earnings for the 16th consecutive quarter as a result of significant operating margin expansion. As expected, sales decreased 3% as our fourth quarter sales from the prior year were unusually high due to a large U.S. Army program that was substantially completed during that quarter, making our prior fourth quarter results a difficult point of comparison. Excluding the impact of this program, sales increased by 20%.”
