Highlights of Cimatron’s results for the third quarter of 2013 include the following:

• 62% increase in y-o-y non-GAAP net profit, to a Q3 record of $1.1 million

• 88% gross margin and 14% operating margin on a non-GAAP basis
• $0.11 non-GAAP EPS

Commenting on the results, Danny Haran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cimatron, noted, “We are very pleased to report Q3/13 as a record third quarter in practically all parameters. In particular, we are pleased that the year-over-year revenue growth in the quarter was translated to significant year-over-year growth in operating and net profits.

“We remain faithful to our long term product strategy, striving to bring ever more value to our customers via internal development as well as through new third party partnerships. Our recent agreement with MachineWorks, to incorporate their Polygonica software inside CimatronE, is a perfect example. We believe that our enhanced investment in R&D, as well as in sales and marketing, will support further revenue and profit growth going forward. In parallel, we continue to explore M&A opportunities, where synergy can be found in terms of product, technology or distribution channels,” concluded Mr. Haran.

The following provides details on Cimatron’s GAAP and non-GAAP results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2013:

GAAP:

Revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $10.3 million, compared to $9.5 million recorded in the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013, revenues were $31.5 million, compared to $30.0 million in the same period of 2012.

Gross Profit for the third quarter of 2013 was $8.9 million, as compared to $8.2 million in the same period in 2012. Gross margin in the third quarter of 2013 was 86% of revenues, compared to 87% in the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013, gross profit was $27.4 million, compared to $26.4 million in the same period of 2012. Gross margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was 87% of revenues, compared to a gross margin of 88% of revenues for the first nine months of 2012.
The higher gross margin in the first nine months of 2012 as compared to the parallel period of 2013 mainly reflect the agreement with the Office of Chief Scientist in the Israeli Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor (OCS), that was announced last year. As a result of that agreement, the Company recorded an additional one-time income of approximately $0.4 million in the second quarter of 2012, reflected as a lower cost of revenue in the GAAP Statements of Income for the first nine months of 2012. Such income was excluded from the non-GAAP results for the first nine months of 2012, in order to ensure that comparisons to comparable periods of previous years better reflect the results of ongoing operations.

Operating Profit in the third quarter of 2013 increased 70% to $1.2 million, as compared to $0.7 million in the same period of 2012. In the first nine months of 2013, Cimatron recorded an operating profit of $3.4 million, the same as in the first nine months of 2012.

Net Profit for the third quarter of 2013 increased 83% to $1.0 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to a net profit of $0.5 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, recorded in the same quarter of 2012.  In the first nine months of 2013, net profit was $2.6 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to a net profit of $2.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2012.

Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statements of Income included herein. Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to include recognition of deferred revenues of acquired companies and to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets and deferred income tax, as well as certain business combination and other accounting entries. The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. We believe that these non-GAAP measures help investors to understand our current and future operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
