* 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 28.4 million and 28.2 million for the fiscal quarters and for the six-month periods ending March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. "Our second quarter results were significantly affected by the announced proposed merger with Coherent, with net income and EPS also negatively affected by non-recurring costs related to the recent proxy contest. Net sales of $110.6 million were lower than expected because of post-merger announcement delivery pushouts by customers and a shift of certain revenue recognition into the third quarter as final acceptance for some projects occurred in the third quarter, rather than in the second quarter as anticipated. We incurred $4.4 million of non-recurring costs primarily related to the proposed merger with Coherent, and to a lesser extent the recent proxy contest, having a net after tax effect of approximately $3.8 million on net income ($0.14 per share on EPS). Our cost-optimization strategy continues to produce positive results and we were able to achieve a gross profit margin of 35%, which met our guidance, despite lower than expected revenues," commented Thomas Merk, CEO and President of RSTI. "Our European business performed well, showing a solid sales and order entry level, mainly supported by France and Italy, while we experienced weaker business levels in North America and Asia. "We continue to see interest from worldwide customers for our high-power fiber laser products, including an initial purchase order from a new, larger OEM that we received in the current third quarter. High-power fiber laser unit sales increased by 25% year-to-date when compared to the prior year period. Our cost improvement program in high-power fiber lasers, with a targeted 15% to 20% manufacturing cost reduction in fiscal year 2016, is on track. The launch of our 2.5 kW fiber laser module is now expected in this fiscal year, one quarter earlier than previously anticipated. Mr. Merk continued, "In addition, our ultrashort pulse lasers gained further momentum with a meaningful increase in sales in the second quarter when compared to the prior year quarter. We expect the first multiple unit orders for cutting of brittle material in the second half of this fiscal year. On the low-power CO2 laser side, we experienced solid sales that were mainly driven by a strong textile business. Revenues from high-power CO2 lasers declined slightly when compared to the prior year's second quarter. We expect a stable business in this area for the full fiscal year, supported by an increase in orders in the second quarter. "Furthermore we are all excited to have entered into the merger agreement with Coherent. This combination, if completed, will deliver significant and immediate value for our stockholders, with an acquisition price of $32.50 per share, equating to a 42% premium over the closing price on the day prior to the announcement. The combined organization should create a stronger, more diversified business with accelerated innovation and enhanced scale, capable of providing meaningful opportunities in the laser space for our employees, customers and suppliers," concluded Mr. Merk. FINANCIAL REVIEW - Second Quarter - Net sales totaled $110.6 million for the second quarter ended March 31, 2016, a 10% decrease from the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, mainly due to post-transaction announcement delivery pushouts, a shift in revenue recognition timing, resulting from final acceptance for some projects being delayed from the second quarter to the third quarter, and a weak semiconductor and automotive business. Gross profit totaled $38.7 million, or 35% of net sales, compared to $45.4 million, or 37% of net sales, in the same period of fiscal year 2015. RSTI net income amounted to $0.5 million, compared to $8.7 million in the comparable quarter last fiscal year. Earnings per diluted share were $0.02 for the quarter based upon 28.4 million weighted-average common shares outstanding, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.31 based upon 28.2 million weighted-average common shares outstanding for the same period last fiscal year. As noted earlier, Q2 financial results were negatively impacted by the contemplated merger of ROFIN with Coherent, Inc. ("Coherent") and the recent public proxy contest. In addition to negatively affecting sales volume, ROFIN incurred $4.4 million of non-recurring costs primarily related to the proposed merger with Coherent and the recent proxy contest, having a net after tax effect of approximately $3.8 million on net income ($0.14 per share on EPS). SG&A expenses amounted to $26.2 million, representing 24% of net sales, and increased by $1.7 million, or 7%, compared to last fiscal year's second quarter, primarily resulting from the $4.4 million of non-recurring expenses earlier described. R&D expenses decreased by $0.5 million to $9.2 million (8% of net sales), compared to $9.7 million (8% of net sales) in the second quarter of fiscal year 2015. Sales of laser products for macro applications decreased 6% to $45.7 million, accounting for 41% of total sales. Sales of lasers for marking and micro applications decreased 18% to $45.9 million, representing 42% of total sales. Quarterly shipments of laser units totaled 1,138 (2015: 1,082), of which 542 were delivered for macro applications and 596 for marking and micro applications. Sales of components increased 3% to $19.0 million, representing 17% of total sales. Quarterly turnover with service and spare parts accounted for $33.4 million. For the second quarter of fiscal 2016, 46% of laser-related sales were from the machine tool industry (compared with 36% in the prior year period); 10% from the automotive industry (14% in 2015); 15% from the semiconductor, electronics and photovoltaic industries (18% in 2015), and 29% from other industries (32% in 2015). On a geographic basis, net sales in North America were $23.0 million, a decrease of 22%, and $31.7 million in Asia, a decrease of 14%. Net sales decreased by 1% in Europe, to $55.9 million, largely due to exchange rate fluctuations. North American net sales accounted for 21% of quarterly net sales, Asian net sales 29% and European net sales 50%. - Six Months - For the six months ended March 31, 2016, net sales totaled $223.0 million, a decrease of $22.1 million, or 9%, over the comparable period in 2015. Several factors negatively impacted the decrease in net sales, including primarily the strengthening of the US dollar, mainly against the Euro (resulting in a decrease in net sales of $10.6 million in the six-month period), weakness in Asia and in the semiconductor and electronics markets generally, and the impact of the announced transaction with Coherent. Gross profit for the period was $79.1 million, or 35.5% of net sales, compared to $88.0 million, or 35.9% of net sales, in the same period in 2015. RSTI net income for the six-month period ended March 31, 2016, totaled $7.1 million, as compared to $14.9 million in the six-month period ended March 31, 2015. Earnings per diluted share were $0.25 for the six-month period based upon 28.4 million weighted-average common shares outstanding, compared to $0.53 based upon 28.2 million weighted-average common shares outstanding for the same period last fiscal year. As noted earlier, fiscal 2016 year-to-date results were negatively impacted by the contemplated merger of ROFIN with Coherent and the recent public proxy contest. In addition to negatively affecting sales volume in the second quarter of fiscal 2016, during the first six months of fiscal 2016, ROFIN incurred $5.1 million of non-recurring costs primarily related to the proposed merger with Coherent and the proxy contest, having a net after tax effect of approximately $4.2 million on net income ($0.15 per share on EPS) for the six-month period. Net sales of lasers for macro applications were $91.0 million, a decrease of $5.1 million, or 5%. Net sales of lasers for marking and micro applications were $93.5 million, a decrease of $20.0 million, or 18%, mainly due to weaker business with the semiconductor, electronics and photovoltaic industries. Component sales of $38.5 million represented an increase of $3.0 million, or 8%, versus the comparable period in fiscal year 2015. Net sales in North America in the first six months of fiscal 2016 were $51.6 million, down 9% from $56.5 million in 2015. Net sales in Asia were $65.8 million, down 13% from $75.8 million in 2015 and net sales in Europe were $105.6 million, a 6% decrease from $112.8 million in 2015. Of total net sales in the six-months ended March 31, 2016, 23 % were from North America, 30 % from Asia and 47 % from Europe. - Backlog - New orders received during the second quarter of fiscal 2016 amounted to approximately $126 million. Overall order entry for the quarter decreased by 19% to $114.7 million compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, and was adversely affected by de-bookings of approximately $11.5 million in anticipation of order cancellations, predominantly by Asian customers. Of the $114.7 million of overall order entry, $52.5 million were for macro applications, $41.6 million were for micro and marking applications and $20.5 million were for components. The backlog as of March 31, 2016, which mainly comprises laser products, amounted to $132.8 million, of which $58.8 million was for laser macro applications, $55.0 million was for laser marking and micro applications, and $19.0 million was for components. As of March 31, 2016, ROFIN had a book-to-bill ratio of 1.04 for the second fiscal quarter. - Merger Agreement - As previously publicly disclosed, on March 16, 2016 ROFIN entered into a Merger Agreement (the "Merger Agreement") with Coherent and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Rembrandt Merger Sub Corp. ("Merger Sub"), providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into ROFIN (the "Merger") with ROFIN surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Coherent, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement. If approved, at the time of the Merger, ROFIN stockholders will be entitled to receive an acquisition price of $32.50 per share of ROFIN stock, equating to a 42% premium over the closing price on the day prior to the announcement of the proposed transaction. On April 28, 2016, ROFIN and Coherent received notice from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission that it had granted early termination, effective immediately, of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 ("HSR Act") for the pending merger transaction. The early termination of the waiting period under the HSR Act satisfies one of the conditions to the closing of the merger, which remains subject to other customary closing conditions, including receipt of stockholder and other regulatory approvals, including the approval or clearance of the merger by all other relevant antitrust authorities, including the European Commission or the antitrust authority of one or more European Union member states. Assuming timely satisfaction of necessary closing conditions and the timely completion of Coherent's financing for the merger, ROFIN anticipates that the merger will be consummated in the last calendar quarter of 2016. In light of the pending transaction with Coherent, ROFIN no longer expects to be providing forward guidance or conducting a conference call to discuss the results of its operations.
