Management Commentary

"While the first quarter was disappointing from a revenue perspective, this was not a result of systemic business issues, but rather a timing issue with regard to collections and shipments," said Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The fundamentals of the business remain robust, driving gross margin of 14% and a new company record for backlog, and reflecting the inherent strengths of our operations based on the improvements we've made across the organization over the past several years. The management team remains confident and looks forward to a strong rebound in Q2 and reaching our total year goal of continued revenue growth and EBITDA breakeven for the first time in company history."

Revenue for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014 was $24.4 million, compared to $35.4 million for the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013, and $28.8 million for the first quarter of Fiscal 2013.
