Allied Motion Reports Results For The Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2013

Allied Motion Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: AMOT) today announced the results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 with net income of $819,000 or $.09 per diluted share compared to net income of $1,817,000 or $.21 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Revenues for the quarter decreased 5.5% to $25,352,000 compared to $26,836,000 last year with foreign sales up 2.7% and sales in the U.S. down 11.6%. Cash at June 30, 2013 increased to $11,256,000 compared to $9,728,000 at December 31, 2012.

The results for the quarter include $234,000 ($159,000 net of tax) of relocation expense to move our corporate office and key employees from Denver, CO to Amherst, NY and $565,000 ($384,000 net of tax) of new business development expenses in conjunction with a potential acquisition. Additionally, net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 included $301,000 (or $222,000 net of tax) received as a concession payment from a landlord for early termination of a building lease. Excluding these non-recurring items, the company achieved adjusted net income for the quarter of $1,362,000 ($.15 per diluted share) compared to $1,595,000 ($.18 per diluted share) for the same period last year.

Beginning in 2013, we no longer include the full value of blanket purchase orders when received from customers and only report them as bookings when they are released to production. To ensure an accurate comparison, we will present bookings and backlog throughout 2013 in the same manner as the prior year. Bookings for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 were $26.4 million compared to last year’s bookings of $23.7 million using the prior method and $23.5 million using the new method. Backlog as of June 30, 2013 was $26.9 million using the new method and was $35.4 million using the prior method compared to $36.7 million as of June 30, 2012.

“Sales in the second quarter of 2013 were up slightly from the first quarter of the year with our served markets in medical, vehicle and A&D down, while our electronics and industrial markets were up. During the remainder of 2013, we will continue to closely monitor our served markets as we believe they have stabilized and, other than for the normal summer season business downturns in Europe, we do expect modest growth as we move through the year,” commented Dick Warzala, President and CEO of Allied Motion. “As previously mentioned, we did incur new business development expenses in conjunction with a potential acquisition which the Company is continuing to pursue. Our balance sheet is strong and our cash net of debt position increased by $2,668,000 in the second quarter to $10,689,000 which puts us in a good position to support our growth strategy in the future. To further support our growth, our platform product development efforts continually create new opportunities for our company by designing innovative “ Motion Solutions That Change the Game” and meet the current and emerging needs of our customers in our served market segments.”

During the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company achieved net income of $1,779,000 or $.20 per diluted share compared to net income of $2,975,000 or $.35 per diluted share for the same six months last year. Revenues decreased 5.9% to $50,495,000 compared to $53,683,000 last year with foreign sales up 1.2% and sales in the U.S. down 11.6%. Of the total 5.9% decrease in sales, 6.6% is due to a decrease in sales volume, partially offset by a 0.7% favorable currency change with the dollar weakening against the Euro and the Swedish Krona.

As previously mentioned, the results for the six months ended June 30, 2013 include $234,000 ($159,000 net of tax) of relocation expense to move our corporate office and key employees from Denver, CO to Amherst, NY and $638,000 ($434,000 net of tax) of new business development expenses in conjunction with a potential acquisition. Additionally, net income for the six months ended June 30, 2012 included $301,000 (or $222,000 net of tax) received as a concession payment from a landlord for early termination of a building lease. In addition to the $301,000 gain discussed above, the results for the six months ended June 30, 2012, also included a pretax charge of $238,000 ($178,000 net of tax) that was recorded in the first quarter of 2012 to cover the expected costs of replacing certain products in the field due to an incorrect electronic component in a printed circuit board supplied by one of the Company’s sub-contract suppliers. Excluding these non-recurring items, adjusted net income for the six months of 2013 would have been $2,372,000 or $.27 per diluted share, compared to $2,931,000 or $.34 per diluted share for the same six months of last year.

Bookings for the first six months this year were $44.4 million compared to $46.7 million for the same six months last year or a drop of 4.9%. As previously mentioned, beginning in 2013, we no longer include the full value of blanket purchase orders when received from customers and only report them as bookings when released to production. Bookings for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $51.6 million compared to last year’s bookings of $46.7 million using the prior method and $44.4 million using the new method. On a comparable basis, orders have increased 10.5% compared to the same period last year.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, (“GAAP”). Allied Motion’s management uses the non-GAAP measure “adjusted net income” in their analysis of the Company’s performance. This measure, as used by Allied Motion in past quarters adjusts net income determined in accordance with GAAP to reflect changes in financial results associated with the highlighted charges and income items. Management believes the presentation of this financial measure reflecting these non-GAAP adjustments provides important supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of the Company as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results; in particular, those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance, and that are not a helpful measure of the performance of our underlying business particularly in light of their unpredictable nature. This non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Management believes that this non-GAAP supplemental information will be helpful in understanding the Company’s ongoing operating results. This supplemental presentation should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to net income determined in accordance with GAAP.

Included below is a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts. Non-GAAP adjusted net income is calculated excluding relocation and other highlighted charges and credits.
