Second quarter operating income was $96.6 million, with adjusted operating income (as defined below) of $105.4 million. Adjusted operating income margin (as defined below) was 10.3% in the second quarter, an increase of 120 basis points from the prior year.

Second quarter gas- and fluid-handling orders decreased by 15.4% to $502.3 million compared to orders of $593.8 million for the second quarter of 2014, an organic order decrease of 4.7%. Gas- and fluid-handling finished the period with backlog of $1,364.4 million.

For the six months ended June 26, 2015 net income was $105.2 million, or $0.84 per dilutive share. Adjusted net income (as defined below) was $107.6 million, or $0.86 per share. Net sales for the six months ended June 26, 2015 were $1.936 billion, a decrease of 14.1% compared to net sales for the six months ended June 27, 2014. Operating income for the six months ended June 26, 2015 was $174.0 million, with adjusted operating income (as defined below) of $186.6 million. Adjusted operating income margin (as defined below) for the six months ended June 27, 2014 was 9.6%, an increase of 60 basis points as compared to the six months ended June 27, 2014.

Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, organic sales decrease and organic order decrease are not financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”). See below for a description of the measures' usefulness and a reconciliation of these measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Steve Simms, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Operating performance in our Gas and Fluid Handling segment met our expectations with significant improvement in operating margins despite flattish sales. In Fabrication Technology, continued impact from lower oil and gas and mining spending resulted in lower than expected sales with the consequent decrease in operating margins. We are aggressively reducing our cost base in response to the weak end markets in Fabrication Technology and have also lowered our expectations for the balance of 2015 in light of the persistently tepid demand.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Adjustments

Colfax has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, organic sales decrease and organic order decrease. Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted operating income and adjusted operating income margin exclude restructuring and other related charges. Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share exclude the write-off of certain deferred financing fees and original issue discount associated with the refinancing of Colfax's credit agreement for the three and six months ended June 26, 2015, and the preferred stock conversion inducement payment for the six months ended June 27, 2014. The effective tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share are 28.3% and 28.8% for the three and six months ended June 26, 2015, respectively. The effective tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share are 30.7% and 29.0% for the three and six months ended June 27, 2014, respectively. Organic sales decrease and organic order decrease exclude the impact of acquisitions and foreign exchange rate fluctuations. These non-GAAP financial measures assist Colfax in comparing its operating performance on a consistent basis because, among other things, they remove the impact of restructuring and other related charges, write-off of certain deferred financing fees and original issue discount, and the preferred stock conversion inducement payment.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures presented above to GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.
