Second Quarter

During the second quarter of 2014, GSI generated revenue of $96.9 million, an increase of 21.5% from $79.8 million in the second quarter of 2013.  The acquisition of JADAK accounted for a 19.5% increase in revenue year over year, and changes in foreign exchange rates contributed to a 1.4% increase in revenue.  Excluding the impact of the JADAK acquisition and changes in foreign exchange rates, the Company's revenue increased 0.6% compared to the second quarter of 2013.

"We are pleased to deliver another strong quarter that saw solid commercial progress across most of our businesses, as evidenced by our new product and customer wins and overall demand for our technologies," said John Roush, Chief Executive Officer.  "Our Laser Products segment was up 8.4%, our Precision Motion segment was up 6.3%, and our Medical Technologies segment was up 57.2%, which included strong organic revenue growth for JADAK."      

In the second quarter of 2014, operating income from continuing operations was $6.5 million, or 6.7% of revenue, compared to $5.4 million, or 6.8% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2013.  The increase in operating income from continuing operations was primarily attributable to an increase in gross profit, lower operating expenses as a percentage of revenue and a decrease in restructuring and acquisition related costs.     

Diluted earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations was $0.10 in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $0.03 in the second quarter of 2013.  Non-GAAP earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure that includes the adjustments noted in the reconciliation below, was $0.19 in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $0.14 in the second quarter of 2013.  

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that includes the adjustments noted in the reconciliation below, was $14.5 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $12.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. 

"While we are making great strides with our growth strategies, our manufacturing sites are undergoing some execution challenges, as we ramp up new product introductions, and expand capacity to support new customer wins and meaningful increases in overall demand,"  said John Roush. "However, we are investing for growth as we aggressively implement our continuous improvement initiative across our largest manufacturing centers."      

As of June 27, 2014, cash and cash equivalents were $45.0 million, while total debt was $134.8 million. The Company completed the second quarter of 2014 with approximately $89.7 million of Net Debt, a non-GAAP measure as defined in the non-GAAP reconciliation below. 

Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 was $17.1 million, compared to $14.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. Operating cash flow from continuing operations, for the first six months of 2014 was $19.9 million, compared to $20.5 million in the first six months of 2013. 

Financial Outlook

For the third quarter of 2014, the Company expects revenue from continuing operations of $95 million to $97 million, an increase of 19% to 21%, on a reported basis, compared to the third quarter of 2013.  The Company expects Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $14.0 million to $15.5 million for the third quarter of 2014. 

"We expect to see continued strong demand for our products and technologies over the course of the year.  We believe we are well positioned to capture strong secular growth trends in the medical and advanced industrial technology markets," said John Roush.  "We are confident that over time, our continuous improvement initiatives will enable us to drive gross margin expansion and sustainable profitable growth."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are non-GAAP gross profit, gross profit margin, operating income from continuing operations, operating margin, income from continuing operations before income taxes, income from continuing operations, net of tax, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, Adjusted EBITDA, and net debt.

The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful and supplementary information to investors regarding the Company's quarterly performance. It is management's belief that these non-GAAP financial measures are particularly useful to investors because of the significant changes that have occurred outside of the Company's day-to-day business in accordance with the execution of the Company's strategy. This strategy includes streamlining the Company's existing operations through site and functional consolidations, strategic divestitures, expanding the Company's business through significant internal investments, and broadening the Company's product and service offerings through acquisition of innovative and complementary technologies and solutions.  The financial impact of certain elements of these activities, particularly acquisitions, divestitures, and site and functional restructurings, are often large relative to the Company's overall financial performance, which can adversely affect the comparability of its operating results and investors' ability to analyze the business from period to period.   

The Company's Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is used by management to evaluate operating performance, communicate financial results to the Board of Directors, benchmark results against historical performance and the performance of peers, and evaluate investment opportunities including acquisitions and divestitures. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is used to determine bonus payments for senior management and employees.  Accordingly, the Company believes that this non-GAAP measure provides greater transparency and insight into management's method of analysis.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as substitutes for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.  They exclude charges that have a material effect on the Company's reported results and, therefore, should not be relied upon as the sole financial measures to evaluate the Company's financial results. The non-GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables accompanying this press release.
