Management Comments

“In the second quarter, Brooks achieved several new performance milestones,” commented Steve Schwartz, CEO of Brooks Automation. "Revenue grew 25% year over year, 6% sequentially, driven by continued strength in both segments. Life Sciences revenue grew 31% year over year and is more than 20% of total revenue despite strong Semiconductor growth, up 24% over the 2016 second quarter. Our strong top line contributed to the highest gross margins we have seen in more than ten years, $25 million of operating cash flow, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.28 per share. Our continuing performance improvement is reflected in our results, and we thank our employees for their hard work and dedication to our customers."

GAAP Summary

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 6% to $169.3 million compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The growth was driven by a 6% increase in the Brooks Semiconductor Solutions Group segment and a 4% increase in the Brooks Life Science Systems segment. Gross margin was 38.1%, up 250 basis points from the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Operating expenses of $49.7 million increased 14% from the previous quarter. Primary drivers of increased operating expense were higher accruals in this second fiscal quarter for performance-based compensation reflecting an improved performance outlook, and increased consulting expense. In the second quarter, the Company incurred $0.9 million of restructuring charges compared to $1.0 million in the first quarter. GAAP net income in the second fiscal quarter was $14.0 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.20, which was even with the first fiscal quarter.

The amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, impact of purchase price accounting adjustments and special charges are appropriately included in the GAAP summary of earnings discussed above. The impact on earnings of such non-GAAP adjustments is referenced in the unaudited table included within this press release.

In the following analysis of the non-GAAP results, Brooks adjusted the GAAP results for the impact of amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, and purchase price accounting adjustments to provide investors better perspective on the results of operations, which the Company believes is more comparable to the similar analysis provided by its peers. Brooks also excludes special charges or gains, such as impairment losses, gains or losses from the sale of assets, as well as other gains and charges that are not representative of the normal operations of the business. Brooks currently includes a valuation allowance reserve against U.S. deferred tax assets in its GAAP results. In assessing the appropriate tax rate for the non-GAAP results, the Company evaluated the adjustments discussed above and concluded it was appropriate to maintain the valuation allowance reserve in deriving the non-GAAP tax rate.

Results of Fiscal Second Quarter of 2017 (Non-GAAP Discussion)

Non-GAAP net income was $19.8 million in the second quarter, resulting in non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.28. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $17.3 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.25 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, and non-GAAP net income of $4.9 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.07 in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

As noted above, revenue for the second fiscal quarter of 2017 was $169.3 million, up 6% compared to the first fiscal quarter of 2017. The semiconductor segment revenue increased 6% sequentially to $134.7 million. While all key semiconductor product lines grew, cryogenic pump products led with 20% expansion from the first quarter. The life science segment revenue grew 4% sequentially to $34.7 million. This segment reported a seasonal drop in genomic services of approximately $4 million dollars, where we observe customers consume remaining budgets in the December month. Excluding the genomic services, the remaining balance of the life science segment grew 20% sequentially. The primary growth driver was consumables and instruments, which expanded 45% sequentially and store systems which expanded 23%.

Adjusted gross margin, which excludes amortization, purchase accounting impacts and special charges, was 39.0% in the second quarter, up 270 basis points from the prior quarter. The semiconductor segment non-GAAP adjusted gross margin was 38.7% in the second quarter compared to 36.4% in the prior period reflecting improved absorption of overhead, particularly in cryogenic pump products, and improved services cost of repair. The life science segment non-GAAP adjusted gross margin was 40.1% in the second quarter compared to 35.7% in the prior period, primarily due to a lower mix of genomic service revenue within the BioStorage service offerings. In summary, the total non-GAAP adjusted gross profit increased by $8.0 million compared to the prior sequential quarter, driven by $9.4 million of increased revenue and improved margins across both segments.

Bookings for the semiconductor segment in the second quarter totaled $171.6 million, compared to $122.8 million in the first quarter. The life science segment booked a total of $48.1 million of new contract value in the quarter, compared to $64.2 million in the first quarter.

Non-GAAP operating expense of $44.6 million increased 13%, or $5.1 million sequentially. The growth was $0.5 million in Research and Development expense, and $4.6 million in SG&A. The SG&A expansion was driven primarily by increased accruals for higher performance based compensation and increased consulting expense.

Adjusted EBITDA was $30.8 million, which improved 20% from the first fiscal quarter. The semiconductor segment reported non-GAAP segment operating profit of $20.8 million, or 15.4% of revenue. The life science segment reported $2.0 million of operating profit, or 5.7% of revenue.

Cash flow from operations was $24.6 million in the second quarter. The Company's cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities was $110.1 million as of March 31, 2017, an increase of $21.1 million from the end of the first fiscal quarter.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company additionally announced that the Board of Directors has reiterated a dividend of $0.10 per share payable on June 23, 2017 to stockholders of record on June 2, 2017. Future dividend declarations, as well as the record and payment dates for such dividends, are subject to the final determination of the Company's Board of Directors.

Guidance for Third Fiscal Quarter 2017

The Company announced revenue and earnings guidance for the third quarter of fiscal 2017. Revenue is expected to be in the range of $175 million to $180 million and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.29 to $0.33. GAAP diluted earnings per share for the third quarter is expected to be in the range of $0.21 to $0.25, reflecting the impact of amortization, purchase price accounting and anticipated restructuring charges.

Notes on Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
The information in this press release is for: internal managerial purposes; when publicly providing guidance on future results; and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. These financial measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Management believes these financial measures provide an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations, that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of our business. Management strongly encourages investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single measure.

The press release includes financial measures which exclude the effects of special charges such as restructuring charges and acquisition related charges. Management believes these measures are useful to investors because it eliminates accounting charges that do not reflect Brooks' day-to-day operations. Tables reconciling GAAP to the non-GAAP measures are presented below.
