Outlook

For the first fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2015, our seasonally lowest quarter, the Company currently forecasts revenues to range from $180 million to $190 million and diluted earnings per share to range from $0.20-$0.25 at prevailing exchange rates. We expect the second half of our fiscal year to follow our usual pattern of being stronger than the first half. Comparable results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 were revenues of $185.8 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.20. 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.

The conference call will be broadcast live over the internet and can be accessed by all interested parties from the Company's web site at www.ii-vi.com as well as at http://tinyurl.com/qh9kt2q.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has disclosed adjusted financial measurements in this press release that present financial information considered to be non-GAAP financial measures. 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 and adjusted non-GAAP earnings per share measure the earnings of the Company, excluding non-recurring or unusual items that are considered by management to be outside of the Company's standard operations. There are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures, including that such measures may not be entirely comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, due to potential differences among calculation methodologies. Thus, there can be no assurance that items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures will not occur in the future, or that there could be cash costs associated with items excluded from 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.
