* The diluted per share calculation is based on the weighted-average shares outstanding and the potential dilution from common stock equivalents (stock options) for each period presented, which was 28.2 million and 28.3 million for the fiscal quarters ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. FINANCIAL REVIEW - First Quarter - Net sales totaled $122.4 million for the first quarter ended December 31, 2014, a 1% increase over the first quarter of fiscal year 2014. The strengthening of the US dollar, mainly against the Euro, resulted in a decrease in net sales of $7.1 million in the first quarter. Gross profit totaled $42.6 million, or 35% of net sales, compared to $41.3 million, or 34% of net sales, in the same period of fiscal year 2014. RSTI net income amounted to $6.2 million, or 5% of net sales, compared to $2.2 million, or 2% of net sales, in the comparable quarter last fiscal year. The diluted per share calculation equaled $0.22 for the quarter based upon 28.2 million weighted-average common shares outstanding, compared to the diluted per share calculation of $0.08 based upon 28.3 million weighted-average common shares outstanding for the same period last fiscal year. SG&A expenses amounted to $24.1 million, representing 20% of net sales, and decreased by $1.3 million compared to last fiscal year's first quarter. Net R&D expenses decreased by $0.9 million to $10.6 million (9% of net sales), compared to $11.5 million (10% of net sales) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014. Sales of laser products for macro applications decreased by 3% to $47.7 million, accounting for 39% of total sales. Sales of lasers for marking and micro applications increased by 3% to $57.6 million representing 47% of total sales. Sales of components increased by 6% to $17.1 million representing 14% of total sales. On a geographical basis, revenues in North America increased by 10%, totaling $27.1 million and by 5% in Asia, to $39.0 million, and decreased by 5% in Europe, to $56.3 million. The Company stated that its first quarter results demonstrate that the business is performing well. The Company achieved excellent sales levels in the automotive and solar industries, as well as solid sales in the machine tool, electronics and medical device industries, although sales to the semiconductor industry softened. These results were adversely affected by exchange rate volatility, since nearly 70% of the Company's revenue is not dollar-denominated. The quarterly earnings per share nearly tripled year-over-year, helped by a reduction in operating expenses, but were negatively impacted by volume-related, under-absorbed fixed costs, timing for revenue recognition on certain orders, and a less favorable product mix, which resulted in net sales and earnings per share below the Company's guidance. Applying the average exchange rates underlying the last fiscal year, orders came in as expected on a very solid level. The following table illustrates the development of the order entry and sales figures, taking into account exchange rate fluctuations. The non-GAAP presentation shows the first quarter 2015 figures when applying the average exchange rates of the first quarter of fiscal year 2014:

                         12/31/14             12/31/14             12/31/13
                             GAAP             Non-GAAP                 GAAP
Sales                    $122,387             $129,479             $121,189
Order Entry              $122,691             $137,588             $140,591


- Backlog - Order entry for the quarter decreased by 13% to $122.7 million compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, resulting in a backlog of $141.6 million as of December 31, 2014, mainly for laser products. As of December 31, 2014, ROFIN-SINAR had a book-to-bill ratio of 1.0 for the first quarter. - Outlook - For the second quarter ending March 31, 2015, taking into account the anticipated impact of the average exchange rate, the Company expects sales to be in the range of $121 million to $126 million and earnings per share to be in the range of $0.21 to $0.23. For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015, the Company is updating its guidance because of the current negative impact of the average exchange rates. This updated guidance does not reflect any material change in the operating assumptions underlying the Company's earlier guidance for its fiscal year. The Company now expects sales to range between $515 million to $535 million and net income profitability at the mid-point of the sales range to be around 7% of net sales. The Company's second quarter and fiscal year 2015 guidance takes into account the estimated unfavorable impact of the average exchange rate resulting mainly from the recent strengthening of the US dollar, to the extent that it continues. The majority of any such impact affects the sales level, with net income being affected to a lesser degree due to natural hedging. Actual results may differ from this forecast, including as a result of higher volatility in exchange rates, and are subject to the safe harbor statement discussed in more detail below. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that non-GAAP information is useful because it can enhance the understanding of its ongoing economic performance.
