First Quarter

During the first quarter of 2014, GSI generated revenue of $79.1 million, an increase of 5.4% from $75.1 million in the first quarter of 2013.  The acquisition of JADAK accounted for a 2.9% increase in revenue year over year, and changes in foreign exchange rates contributed to a 1.1% increase in revenue.  Excluding the impact of the JADAK acquisition and changes in foreign exchange rates, the Company's revenue increased 1.4% compared to the first quarter of 2013.

"We delivered solid financial results, with all but one of our business lines reporting growth in the first quarter," said John Roush, Chief Executive Officer.  "Our Laser Products segment was up 10%, our Precision Motion segment was up 12%, and our Medical Technologies segment was down (5%).  Medical Technologies was down as a result of a single customer's dual sourcing decision that reduced NDS volume beginning in April 2013."      

In the first quarter of 2014, income from operations was $4.1 million, or 5.1% of revenue, compared to $1.5 million, or 1.9% of revenue, during the same period in 2013.  The increase in income from operations was primarily attributed to an increase in gross margins as a result of higher sales, and a significant reduction in restructuring and acquisition related costs.     

Diluted earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations was $0.08 in the first quarter of 2014, compared to $0.05 in the first quarter of 2013.  Non-GAAP earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure that includes the adjustments noted in the reconciliation below, was $0.14 in the first quarter of 2014, compared to $0.16 in the first quarter of 2013.  Included in the first quarter of 2013 was a $1.2 million impact related to a foreign exchange gain.        

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that includes the adjustments noted in the reconciliation below, was $11.3 million in the first quarter of 2014, compared to $11.1 million in the first quarter of 2013. 

As of March 28, 2014, cash and cash equivalents were $31.7 million, while total debt was $136.6 million. The Company completed the first quarter of 2014 with approximately $104.9 million of Net Debt, a non-GAAP measure as defined in the non-GAAP reconciliation below. 

Operating cash flow from continuing operations, for the first quarter of 2014 was $2.8 million, compared to $6.3 million in the first quarter of 2013. Operating cash flow from continuing operations excludes the cash flows of discontinued operations. 

"Overall, I was very pleased with our financial and strategic performance in the quarter, and feel we are well on our way to delivering a great year," said John Roush.  "Our businesses are all expected to demonstrate revenue growth in 2014, as the sluggish capital spending environment gradually improves.  We expect that our profitability will continue to improve through the year, as we see increased productivity savings from the Kaizen events and strategic sourcing programs we have underway this year.  These savings programs should enable us to deliver solid profit growth year over year, and position us for continued margin expansion in 2015 and beyond."  

Business Update

The Company reports its results under three reportable segments, each of which offers different product technologies to customers in distinct end market applications. 

Laser Products

Laser Products designs, manufactures and markets photonics-based solutions to customers worldwide. The segment serves highly demanding photonics-based applications such as industrial material processing, medical and life science imaging, and medical laser procedures.  GSI's laser-based revenue grew 10% year over year in the first quarter of 2014.  In the first quarter, all product lines within the business demonstrated solid growth, led by double digit growth in our laser sources. Laser scanning products sales were up approximately 6% year over year in the quarter. 

Medical Technologies

Medical Technologies designs, manufactures and markets a range of medical grade technologies, including visualization solutions, imaging informatics products, optical data collection and machine vision technologies, thermal printers, and light and color measurement instrumentation to customers worldwide.   In the first quarter of 2014, sales were down approximately (5%), driven by a customer's dual sourcing decision with NDS, which occurred weeks after we acquired the business.  Sales of medical grade thermal printer products experienced double digit growth in the quarter, driven by new program wins and stronger order volume from existing medical programs.  The Company expects growth to return in this segment, in the second quarter of 2014.

In March 2014, GSI completed the acquisition of JADAK, a New York-based provider of optical data collection and machine vision technologies to medical device original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs"), for $93.5 million in cash.  The JADAK acquisition further broadens GSI's portfolio of highly engineered, high performing components for medical and advanced industrial OEMs.     

Precision Motion

Precision Motion designs, manufactures and markets optical encoders, air bearing spindles and precision machined components to customers worldwide.  In the first quarter of 2014, sales increased 12% year over year.  Precision Motion experienced solid growth in the quarter, driven by increases in capital spending in industrial and medical markets, and further compounded by a new design win with a large Medical OEM.  

Financial Outlook

For the second quarter of 2014, the Company expects revenue from continuing operations of between $90 million and $95 million.  On a reported basis, revenue is expected to increase 13% to 19%, compared to the second quarter of 2013.  The Company expects Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $13 million to $15 million for the second quarter of 2014.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are non-GAAP gross profit, gross profit margin, income from 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.

Other important risk factors that could affect the outcome of the events set forth in these statements and that could affect the Company's operating results and financial condition are discussed in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), and in our future filings with the SEC. Such statements are based on the Company's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to the Company. The Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the date of this document except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margin

The calculation of non-GAAP gross profit and gross profit margin is displayed in the tables above.  Non-GAAP gross profit and gross profit margin exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets and acquisition fair value adjustments from business acquisitions because: (1) the amounts are non-cash; (2) the Company cannot influence the timing and amount of future expense recognition; and (3) excluding such expenses provides investors and management better visibility into the components of operating expenses.
