FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS (dollars in thousands, except per share data)
Three months ended
                                        12/31/15     12/31/14     % Change

Net sales                               $112,464     $122,387          -8%
RSTI net income                           $6,547       $6,166           6%
Earnings per share "Diluted" basis*        $0.23        $0.22           5%

* 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 28.5 million and 28.2 million for the fiscal quarters ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. "Our results in the first quarter demonstrate that our strategy to drive cost improvements and generate shareholder value continues to gain traction. Earnings per share were at the upper end of our guidance range in the first quarter and would have exceeded guidance without the impact of non-recurring costs, mainly related to the proxy contest. Sales in this seasonally slower quarter were broadly in line with last year excluding the impact of the strong U.S. dollar and were negatively impacted by the timing of revenue recognition for one order," commented Thomas Merk, CEO and President of ROFIN-SINAR. "Gross margin was up year over year, despite an unfavorable product mix due to lower revenues from micro and marking applications, as well as services and spare parts. We continue to reduce manufacturing costs for our fast-growing high-power fiber laser products. We also made significant progress towards realizing $5 million of operating cost reductions in fiscal year 2016, through our efficiency and consolidation program commenced in early 2015. Key highlights from the quarter include the merger of two German subsidiaries and better alignment of our workforce and other resources with growth opportunities and market demand. Further actions are being taken to streamline our processes globally and we continue to evaluate additional opportunities to reduce our operating costs. "Our R&D investments continue to yield important product developments that will support future value creation, including our proprietary filament cutting process with femtosecond lasers and our new 2.5 kilowatt fiber laser module. The successful test of this technology is an important milestone towards its commercial launch later this year and will support continued fast growth of our high-power fiber laser business. We believe ROFIN will be first-to-market with 5 kilowatt lasers that operate with just two modules. Our R&D efforts are also driving cost improvements through improved design and we are targeting a 15% to 20% reduction in the manufacturing cost of high-power fiber lasers in fiscal year 2016. "We believe we are well positioned as we move into seasonally more active quarters and are encouraged by solid bookings activity in the first weeks of the second quarter. We expect to face a headwind from uncertainty with the Chinese economy, similar to what has been reported by other companies. Order entry in the first quarter was negatively impacted by currency movements ($18 million impact) and de-bookings in anticipation of cancellations by two Chinese customers (approximately $12 million impact). However, our new technology initiatives and more efficient cost structure position us strongly to grow market share, further increase our profit margins and create additional shareholder value in the quarters ahead," Mr. Merk concluded. FINANCIAL REVIEW - First Quarter - Net sales totaled $112.5 million for the first quarter ended December 31, 2015, an 8% decrease from the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar, mainly against the Euro, resulted in a decrease in net sales of $8.5 million in the first quarter. Gross profit totaled $40.4 million, or 36% of net sales, compared to $42.6 million, or 35% of net sales, in the same period of fiscal year 2015. RSTI net income amounted to $6.5 million, or 6% of net sales, compared to $6.2 million, or 5% of net sales, in the comparable quarter of last fiscal year. The diluted per share calculation equaled $0.23 for the quarter based upon 28.5 million weighted-average common shares outstanding, compared to the diluted per share calculation of $0.22 based upon 28.2 million weighted-average common shares outstanding for the same period last fiscal year. Excluding the impact of non-recurring costs, which are mainly related to the proxy contest, earnings per share on a diluted basis would have been $0.25 for the first quarter of FY16. SG&A expenses amounted to $23.0 million, representing 20% of net sales, and decreased by $1.1 million compared to last fiscal year's first quarter. Net R&D expenses decreased by $1.9 million to $8.7 million (8% of net sales), compared to $10.6 million (9% of net sales) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Sales of laser products for macro applications decreased by 5% to $45.3 million, or 40% of total sales. Sales of laser products for marking and micro applications decreased by 17% to $47.7 million, or 43% of total sales. Sales of components increased by 14% to $19.5 million, or 17% of total sales. On a geographical basis, revenues in North America increased by 6%, totaling $28.7 million and decreased by 13% in Asia (6.6% on a constant currency basis), to $34.1 million, and by 12% in Europe (1.5% on a constant currency basis), to $49.7 million. The following non-GAAP presentation shows the sales and order entry figures for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016 when applying the average exchange rates of the comparable period of fiscal year 2015:
                         12/31/15             12/31/15             12/31/14
                             GAAP             Non-GAAP                 GAAP
Sales                    $112,464             $120,927             $122,387
Order Entry               $96,854             $114,883             $122,691

- Backlog - Order entry for the quarter decreased by 21% to $96.9 million compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, resulting in a backlog of $128.7 million as of December 31, 2015, mainly for laser products. The decrease in order entry was the result of adverse currency movements, which had a negative $18 million impact, and de-bookings in anticipation of cancellations by two Chinese customers because of increased economic uncertainty in China, which had a negative impact of approximately $12 million. The book-to-bill ratio for the quarter was 0.86. - Outlook - For the second quarter ending March 31, 2016, taking into account the anticipated impact of the average exchange rate, the Company expects sales to grow sequentially from the first quarter and be in the range of $115 million to $121 million and earnings per share to be in the range of $0.20 to $0.26. For the fiscal year ending September 30, 2016, the Company is updating its sales guidance to reflect existing order entry and economic uncertainty in China. This updated guidance does not reflect any material change in the operating assumptions underlying the Company's earlier guidance for its fiscal year or its projected net income as a percentage of sales. The Company now expects sales to range between $495 million to $525 million and continues to expect net income profitability at the mid-point of the sales range to be around 8% of net sales. The Company's second quarter and full fiscal year 2016 guidance takes into account the estimated unfavorable impact of the average exchange rate resulting mainly from the strengthening of the U.S. dollar. The majority of any such impact primarily affects sales, 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. The Company has chosen to provide this information to investors to enable them to perform comparisons of order entry and sales results.
