Management Comments

"Despite flat market conditions over the quarter, we generated revenue and profits performance in line with our guidance. Cash flow generation was strong as we continued to improve gross margin and reduce inventory," said Steve Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of Brooks. "We closed out several of the major Life Science Systems orders that were in our pipeline and we booked $18.5 million of orders in this business during the quarter. This was an important step in the recovery of this business after a period of slow spending. New leadership in the Life Science Systems business is strongly focused on working with current and prospective customers to maintain this momentum."
