"Despite flat market conditions over the quarter, we generated revenue and profits performance in line with our guidance. Cash flow generation was strong as we continued to improve gross margin and reduce inventory," said Steve Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of Brooks. "We closed out several of the major Life Science Systems orders that were in our pipeline and we booked $18.5 million of orders in this business during the quarter. This was an important step in the recovery of this business after a period of slow spending. New leadership in the Life Science Systems business is strongly focused on working with current and prospective customers to maintain this momentum."
Dr. Schwartz continued, "We believe that further near-term growth of our front end semiconductor business is likely, however, we are uncertain as to the timing given the relatively flat order booking trends that we continue to experience. In the longer term, the continued expansion of our engagements for important new business and developing operational improvements should make our business larger and more profitable."
Martin S. Headley, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Adjusted EBITDA of $12.0 million in the quarter was above our expectations for the level of revenue that we achieved. However, our net income was adversely impacted by an abnormally high effective tax rate in the quarter of 74%. For the full year we now expect a lower effective tax rate than previously projected and expect a very low effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013."
Third Quarter of Fiscal 2013 Results
Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were $118.1 million, a 1.2% increase compared to revenues of $116.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and $140.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 reflected sequential growth in the services business and sales into industrial and adjacent markets. Product revenues into the semiconductor front end market declined 3.2% sequentially as a result of actions the Company took to exit from certain low margin business.
Revenues for the Brooks Global Services segment increased 2.9% on a sequential basis compared to the second quarter of 2013. Revenues for the Brooks Product Solutions segment increased 1.4% sequentially with growth in sales to industrial and adjacent markets.

New order bookings for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 5.6% sequentially to $128.1 million, compared to order bookings in the fiscal second quarter 2013 of $121.3 million.

The third quarter of fiscal 2013 saw sequential margin improvements in our Global Services business as a result of cost structure improvements and in our Life Sciences business as a result of higher software and device sales.

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 non-recurring income and special charges such as restructuring charges and acquisition related charges.
