inTEST Executive Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Robert E. Matthiessen commented, "We are very pleased with our results for the second quarter. On the heels of an exceptionally strong first quarter, second quarter revenue increased 33% year-over-year, excluding the impact of the additional net revenues from the acquisition of Ambrell, and we marked the Company's 31st consecutive quarter of profitability."

Mr. Matthiessen added, "We are seeing immediate benefits from the recently closed acquisition. Ambrell's induction heating technology complements our current thermal technologies and firmly establishes our position in industrial markets with a diverse customer base in a broader manufacturing space, including in many emerging markets, consumer product packaging, fiber-optic, automotive and other markets. We are well positioned to capture market share in the markets we serve, while expanding inTEST's footprint in additional thermal test and industrial markets. As we head into the second half of 2017, we anticipate seasonal declines, consistent with our peers, given the strength in the test industry in the first part of this year. As we continue to execute on our differentiated product strategy, we believe the conditions for our long-term success remain firmly in place and we are solidly on track for a strong 2017."

2017 Third Quarter Financial Outlook
inTEST expects that net revenues for the third quarter of 2017 will be in the range of $17.5 million to $18.5 million and that on a GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share will range from $0.12 to $0.16. This outlook is based on the Company's current views with respect to operating and market conditions and customers' forecasts, which are subject to change.
