• 28% year-over-year increase in non-GAAP net profit for Q2, to a second quarter record of $1.5 million;

• Record $7.6 million cash flow from operating activities in the first six months of 2014 leads to end of June net cash balance of $20.4 million or $1.90 per share

Concurrently with the release of its financial results, Cimatron also announced today that its Board of Directors has adopted a policy for distributing dividends, subject to all applicable laws. According to this policy, each year the Company will distribute a dividend of at least 50% of its annual distributable profits from the previous year. As part of the stated policy, the Company's Board of Directors reserves the right to declare additional dividend distributions, to change the rate of dividend distributions (either as a policy or on a one-time basis), to cancel a specific distribution or to cancel the policy as a whole at any time, at its sole discretion. The Company expects to declare the first distribution under the new policy during the first quarter of 2015, based on its 2014 annual distributable profits. The actual distribution of a dividend will be subject to meeting the conditions required by applicable laws, including the distribution tests set forth in Section 302 of the Israeli Companies Law, 5759-1999, and to the specific decision of the Company's Board of Directors for each distribution.

Commenting on the news, Danny Haran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cimatron, noted, “We are very pleased to report our best second quarter ever, with record revenues, profit and cash flow. We saw strong results from both our product lines and across all major geographical territories. Over 50% of the year-over-year quarterly revenue growth reached the non-GAAP operating profit line, demonstrating once again the strong operating leverage in our business model.

“As planned, CimatronE version 12 was officially released during July 2014. We have high expectations for this latest version, as it incorporates numerous key enhancements, as well as our first entry into the 3D Printing software market. Initial feedback from the field is very encouraging.

“Our strong performance has built our cash balance to its current level of just over $20 million, an amount that is more than sufficient to fund our strategy for growth, including potential M&A opportunities. As such, we are happy to share our success more directly with our shareholders through the newly announced policy of significant annual dividend distributions. We are confident that our success in the years to come, coupled with the dividends that we plan to distribute, will create greater value for our shareholders while encouraging long-term interest and investment in our Company,” concluded Mr. Haran.

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, stock based compensation 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.
