MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG), a leading producer of precision sensors and systems, today updated its first quarter revenue guidance for the three months ended March 28, 2015.
The company previously provided first quarter 2015 net revenue guidance in the range of $59 million to $64 million. The company expects to report first quarter 2015 net revenues of approximately $57 million.
