"Our first priority remains the health and safety of our employees and their families. Up to 40% of our total personnel continue to work from home, and within our manufacturing operations, we are maintaining social distancing and other necessary protocols. Given the challenging operating environment, we are especially pleased to report that Teledyne achieved both record first quarter sales and GAAP diluted earnings per share," said Robert Mehrabian, Executive Chairman. "Sales of $784.6 million increased 5.3% and included positive organic growth. Likewise, GAAP earnings per share and GAAP operating margin increased despite substantial charges taken in the first quarter. Teledyne's business portfolio remains exceptionally well-balanced across end markets and geographies. In addition, approximately one half of our businesses are longer-cycle, more predictable and supported by record quarter-end backlog. Nevertheless, our current lower and wider earnings outlook range is a result of the highly uncertain environment. Teledyne's balance sheet is exceptionally strong, with over $230 million of cash and cash equivalents and more than $600 million available under our credit facility maturing in 2024. Given our ample liquidity and the resilience of our business portfolio, we continue to review and pursue acquisition opportunities."
