Bookings are defined as customer orders received that are expected to be converted into revenues during the next 12 months.

Revenues from continuing operations for the fourth quarter increased 22% to a record $187.9 million from $154.1 million in the fourth quarter of last fiscal year. Revenues from continuing operations for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014 increased 24% to a record $683.3 million, compared to $551.1 million for last fiscal year. Revenues resulting from the Company's acquisitions completed during fiscal year 2014 were $39.5 million and $115.2 million for the fourth quarter and fiscal year.

Earnings from continuing operations attributed to II-VI Incorporated for the fourth quarter were $12.7 million, or $0.20 per share-diluted, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $14.3 million, or $0.22 per share-diluted, for the fourth quarter of last fiscal year. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014, earnings from continuing operations attributed to II-VI Incorporated were $38.3 million, or $0.60 per share-diluted, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $57.6 million, or $0.90 per share-diluted, for last fiscal year.

Francis J. Kramer, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased to report improving financial results for the fourth quarter. Consolidated segment revenues increased 8% and earnings increased 69% from the quarter ended March 31, 2014. Our Infrared Optics segment was at the forefront of this improvement with good bookings and revenue growth, including at our HIGHYAG business unit which experienced strong demand for laser welding heads and beam delivery systems for the fiber laser and direct diode laser markets."

"We are executing our integration roadmap for the businesses acquired during fiscal year 2014 in the Active Optical Products segment. Although we are not yet satisfied with our financial results for that segment, we did show an 8% improvement in segment results compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2014."

"As we enter fiscal year 2015, we feel that the Company's planned new three segment structure will improve the alignment among our end markets, our customers, our operations and our product portfolio investments. We believe this will improve our line of sight on profitability and cash usage."

As discussed below under "Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures," the Company is presenting non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Please refer to the attached reconciliation between GAAP and adjusted financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and the non-GAAP adjusted financial measures.

Share Repurchase Program

The Company announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized the Company to implement a new share repurchase program for up to $50 million of its Common Stock. The repurchases may be made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions as permitted by federal and state securities laws, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act. The Company may suspend or discontinue this repurchase program at any time. Shares repurchased by the Company will be retained as treasury stock and will be available for general corporate purposes. The Company expects the repurchase of shares to at least partially offset the dilutive effect of the issuance of shares from the Company's current Omnibus Incentive Plan, and will finance the repurchases from cash-on-hand and amounts available under the Company's existing credit facility.

Outlook

For the first fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2014, the Company currently forecasts revenues from continuing operations to range from $170 million to $185 million and earnings per share from continuing operations to range from $0.14 to $0.20 per share-diluted. Comparable results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 were revenues from continuing operations of $150.0 million and earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.15. All financial performance measures included in these forecasts, and their respective historical references, were prepared in accordance with GAAP. As discussed in more detail below, actual results may differ from these forecasts due to various factors including, but not limited to, changes in product demand, competition and general economic conditions.

Segment Information from Continuing Operations

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has disclosed adjusted financial measurements in this press release that present financial information that is not in accordance with GAAP. These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although the Company's management uses these measurements as an aid in monitoring the Company's on-going financial performance. The adjusted non-GAAP net earnings attributable to II-VI Incorporated and adjusted non-GAAP earnings per share measure the earnings of the Company excluding unusual items that are considered by management to be outside of the normal on-going operations of the Company. There are limitations with the use of non-GAAP financial measures, including that non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies, that there can be no assurance that excluded items in the non-GAAP financial measures will not occur in the future and that there could be cash costs associated with items excluded in the non-GAAP financial measures. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by providing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
