FEI Adopts Group Structure To Facilitate Further Growth

Dr. Scagnetti joined FEI in 2001 and was named vice president and general manager of the Natural Resources business unit in 2007. Before FEI, he was with Intel Corporation in marketing and general management roles within the New Business Investments Group and in process development engineering. He holds an MBA from the University of Oregon and a PhD in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Science Group includes the Materials Science and Life Sciences business units. In the first nine months of 2012, those businesses represented approximately 48% of FEI's revenue. The Industry Group includes the Electronics and Natural Resources businesses. In the first nine months of 2012, those businesses represented approximately 52% of company revenue. Both of the new Groups include the revenue and costs associated with service provided to their customers. In accordance with SEC guidelines, FEI plans to report its segment information for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 in line with its prior segment reporting. Beginning with the first quarter of 2013, it will report segments based on the new management structure.

The company also expects to incur additional restructuring charges in the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily related to the reorganization. With its third quarter earnings release on October 30, the company had forecast restructuring expense of approximately $2 million for the fourth quarter. That expense is now forecast to be $2.9 million.
