For the first quarter ending December 31, 2014, the company announced earnings guidance. Revenue is expected to be in the range of $125 million to $130 million. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share excluding special charges and intangibles amortization expense is expected to be in the range of $0.05 to $0.07. The higher revenue is driven by the recent acquisition of CCS and FluidX, each providing approximately $3 million of additional revenue in the quarter. They are not dilutive, but not yet bringing profit to the bottom line. So the profit drop through from the revenue may not be what normally expects. At the same time, effective tax rate is returning to a more normal 30% to 35% level on the first quarter, which is more than $0.01 per share impact compared to the fourth quarter.
