Chief Financial Officer Tim Carlson said, "We had $2.3 million of SDS integration, transition and operational spending during the quarter and anticipate completing the China business transition during the second quarter. Once completed, we anticipate incremental revenues of $7 million to $8 million per quarter and $0.08 to $0.09 of incremental quarterly earnings per diluted share as compared to our pre-transaction run-rate."
