Outlook for Fiscal 2014

As previously disclosed, Jason continues to increase production capacity at its new Acoustics segment manufacturing facility in Battle Creek, Michigan as a result of significant new business awards from its customers. The Company's near-term results will be impacted by labor and material inefficiencies associated with the ongoing startup of Battle Creek. The inefficiencies of the Battle Creek startup are expected to begin moderating in the fourth quarter of 2014.

David Westgate, Chief Executive Officer of Jason commented, "We are resolved to fix our operational inefficiencies at Battle Creek as quickly as possible. We remain excited about our opportunities and are committed to utilizing the Jason Business System to drive revenue growth and margin expansion, and to identify attractive acquisition opportunities."

As a result, Jason expects to report full year fiscal 2014 net sales in the range of $690 - $705 million and Adjusted EBITDA in a range of $76 - $80 million. This outlook includes additional corporate infrastructure costs associated with Jason becoming a public company.
