In the 2nd quarter ended June 30, Shamir Optical's revenues increased by 22 percent to $24.7 million. Gross profit climbed by 22.9 percent to $13.7 million, but a $1.4 million charge related to the integration of new operations in France and Turkey caused operating income to drop to $2.0 million, as compared to $3.1 million in the year-ago period. Net income fell to $1.7 million, compared with $2.1 million in 2005. Shamir says its business in Israel has been somewhat impacted by the conflict in the north of the country, but the company still expects 2006 full year results to be at or near their projected levels.
