GSI GROUP INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

AS OF JUNE 29, 2012

(Unaudited)

1. Nature of Operations and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

GSI Group Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the “Company”) design, develop, manufacture and sell laser-based solutions (primarily lasers), laser scanning devices, and precision motion and optical control technologies. Our technology is incorporated into customer products or manufacturing processes for a wide range of applications in a variety of markets, including: electronics, industrial, medical, and scientific. Our products enable customers to make advances in materials and processing technology and to meet extremely precise manufacturing specifications.

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in U.S. dollars and in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, applied on a consistent basis. The accounting policies underlying these unaudited consolidated financial statements are those set forth in Note 3 to Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Those policies are not presented herein, except to the extent that new policies have been adopted, or there is material current period activity or changes to our policies to disclose.

The Company’s unaudited interim financial statements are prepared on a quarterly basis ending on the Friday closest to the end of the calendar quarter, with the exception of the fourth quarter which always ends on December 31.

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the instructions to Form 10-Q and the provisions of Regulation S-X pertaining to interim financial statements. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The interim consolidated financial statements and notes included in this report should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. As discussed in Note 2, the Company classified the Semiconductor Systems and Laser Systems businesses as held for sale beginning in the second quarter of 2012. As a result, certain prior period information included in the consolidated statements has been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

The interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its 50% owned joint venture, Excel Laser Technology Private Limited (“Excel SouthAsia JV”). Intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. In the opinion of management, these interim consolidated financial statements include all significant adjustments and accruals necessary for a fair presentation of the results of the interim periods presented. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the year or for any future periods.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of sales and expenses during the reporting periods. The Company evaluates its estimates based on historical experience, current conditions and various other assumptions that it believes are reasonable under the circumstances. Estimates and assumptions are reviewed on an on-going basis and the effects of revisions are reflected in the period in which they are deemed to be necessary. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) No. 2011-08, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) – Testing Goodwill for Impairment” (ASU 2011-08), to allow entities to use a qualitative approach to test goodwill for impairment. ASU 2011-08 permits an entity to first perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value. If it is concluded that this is the case, it is necessary to perform the currently prescribed two-step goodwill impairment test. Otherwise, the two-step goodwill impairment test is not required. ASU 2011-08 became effective for the Company in the second quarter of 2012. The adoption of ASU 2011-08 did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In July 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-02, “Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment”. Similar to goodwill impairment testing guidance under ASU 2011-08, the revised standard allows entities to use a qualitative approach to test indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment. ASU 2012-02 permits entities to perform a qualitative assessment by considering events and circumstances which would impact the fair value of the entity’s indefinite-lived intangible assets to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of the entity’s indefinite-lived intangible assets are impaired. If it is determined that this is the case, it is necessary to perform the currently prescribed two-step impairment test. Otherwise, the two-step impairment test is not required. The revised standard is effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of this amendment will not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

2. Discontinued Operations

Beginning in 2011, the Company conducted a strategic review of its businesses to focus its growth priorities and simplify the Company’s business model. In June 2012, the Company committed to a plan for the sale of the Semiconductor Systems operating segment, sold under the GSI brand name, and Laser Systems product lines, sold under the Control Laser and Baublys brand names. The Company expects to sell these businesses within twelve months. As a result, the Company began accounting for these businesses as discontinued operations beginning in the second quarter of 2012. The Company includes all current and historical results of these businesses in income from discontinued operations, net of tax, in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. The Company classified the assets and liabilities for these businesses for the current and prior period in the consolidated balance sheets as current assets and current liabilities, respectively. The Company’s consolidated statements of cash flows include the cash flows from both continuing and discontinued operations.

The major components of the assets and liabilities of discontinued operations as of June 29, 2012 and December 31, 2011 are as follows (in thousands):

3. Bankruptcy Disclosures

On November 20, 2009, GSI Group Inc. and two of its United States subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the “Chapter 11 Cases”). On May 27, 2010, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming and approving the plan of reorganization (the “Final Chapter 11 Plan”). The transactions contemplated under the Final Chapter 11 Plan were consummated on July 23, 2010. The Chapter 11 Cases were closed on September 2, 2011, and the Company no longer has any legal or material financial constraint relating to those cases.

Post-Emergence Professional Fees

Post-emergence professional fees represent costs incurred subsequent to bankruptcy emergence for financial and legal advisors to assist with matters in finalizing the bankruptcy process, including bankruptcy claim matters. Post-emergence professional fees totaled $0.1 million and $0.2 million during the three and six months ended July 1, 2011 with no comparable amounts during the three and six months ended June 29, 2012.

The tax effects on the components of comprehensive income were nominal for all periods presented.

5. Earnings per Share

Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. For diluted earnings per common share, the denominator also includes the dilutive effect of outstanding restricted stock awards and restricted stock units determined using the treasury stock method.

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share (in thousands, except per share amounts):

6. Fair Value Measurements

Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the third is considered unobservable:

 

   

Level 1: Quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets which the Company can access.

 

   

Level 2: Observable inputs other than those described in Level 1.

 

   

Level 3: Unobservable inputs.

The Company’s cash equivalents are investments in money market accounts, which represent the only asset the Company measures at fair value on a recurring basis. Cash equivalents of $8.6 million and $4.1 million as of June 29, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, are classified as Level 1 in the fair value hierarchy because they are valued at quoted prices in active markets. The fair values of cash equivalents, accounts receivable, income taxes receivable, accounts payable, income taxes payable, and accrued expenses and other current liabilities approximate their carrying values because of their short-term nature. See Note 9 to Consolidated Financial Statements for discussion of the estimated fair value of the Company’s outstanding debt.

Senior Credit Facility

The Company’s senior secured credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) provides for a $40.0 million, 4-year, term loan facility due in quarterly installments of $2.5 million beginning in January 2012 and a $40.0 million, 4-year, revolving credit facility (collectively, the “Senior Credit Facility”) that matures in 2015. The Credit Agreement also provides for an additional uncommitted $25.0 million incremental facility, subject to the satisfaction of certain customary covenants. The Company is required to pay a commitment fee on unused commitments ranging between 0.3% and 0.5% annually, based on the Company’s leverage ratio, as defined in the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement contains various customary representations, warranties and covenants applicable to the Company and its subsidiaries, including, without limitation, (i) covenants regarding maximum leverage ratio and minimum fixed charge coverage ratio; (ii) limitations on dividend payments and stock repurchases; (iii) limitations on fundamental changes involving the Company or its subsidiaries; (iv) limitations on the disposition of assets and; (v) limitations on indebtedness, investments, restricted payments and liens. The Company is in compliance with these covenants as of June 29, 2012. On July 19, 2012, the Company entered into an amendment to the Credit Agreement (the “Second Amendment”). The Second Amendment provides that the Company has satisfied the Burnoff Condition (as defined in the Credit Agreement) contained in the Credit Agreement effective as of July 19, 2012, which eliminates the requirement for the Company to meet the borrowing base financial restriction and minimum EBIDTA covenant contained in the Credit Agreement.

Interest Expense

The interest rates on the term loan and revolving credit facility were 2.97% and 2.85%, respectively, at June 29, 2012. Interest expense on the Senior Credit Facility for the three and six months ended June 29, 2012 was $0.4 million and $1.0 million, respectively. In addition, the Company recorded $0.3 million and $0.5 million of non-cash amortization of deferred financing costs for the three and six months ended June 29, 2012, respectively.

Interest expense of $3.4 million and $7.1 million for the three and six months ended July 1, 2011, respectively, was related to the 12.25% Senior Secured PIK Election Notes which were extinguished in October 2011.

Fair Value of Debt

As of June 29, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the outstanding balance of the Company’s Senior Credit Facility of $53.0 million and $68.0 million, respectively, approximated fair value based on current rates available to the Company for debt of the same maturity, and is therefore classified as Level 2 within the fair value hierarchy.

10. Share-Based Compensation

     887     
  

 

 

   

The total fair value of restricted stock units that vested during the six months ended June 29, 2012 was $1.6 million based on the market price of the underlying stock on the day of vesting.

The Company recognized share-based compensation expense totaling $1.0 million and $0.8 million during the three months ended June 29, 2012 and July 1, 2011, respectively, and $2.3 million and $1.8 million during the six months ended June 29, 2012 and July 1, 2011, respectively. Share-based compensation expense is primarily included in selling, general, and administrative expense in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and as an increase to additional paid-in capital on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets. The Company recognizes share-based compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period, typically three years, net of estimated forfeitures. The forfeiture rate is determined based on anticipated forfeitures and actual experience.

Share-based compensation expense recorded includes compensation expense of $0.5 million and $0.6 million for 43,991 and 42,536 deferred stock units granted during the six months ended June 29, 2012 and July 1, 2011, respectively, to members of the Company’s Board of Directors pursuant to the Company’s 2010 Incentive Award Plan. The expense associated with the respective deferred stock units was recognized in full on the respective date of grant, as the deferred stock units were fully vested and nonforfeitable upon grant. Each deferred stock unit represents the right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock on the date of termination of the holder’s service as a board member.

12. Income Taxes

At the end of each interim reporting period, the Company determines its estimated annual effective tax rate, which is revised, as required, at the end of each successive interim period based on facts known at that time. The estimated annual effective tax rate is applied to the year-to-date pre-tax income at the end of each interim period. The tax effect of significant unusual items is reflected in the period in which they occur. Since the Company is incorporated in Canada, it is required to use Canada’s statutory tax rate of 25.0% in the determination of the estimated annual effective tax rate. The Company’s reported effective tax rate on income from continuing operations of 12.1% and 13.3% for the three and six months ended June 29, 2012, respectively, differs from the expected Canadian federal statutory rate of 25.0% primarily due to the release of a portion of the Company’s valuation allowance, the income earned in jurisdictions with varying tax rates, and an increase in the Company’s liability for uncertain tax positions.

The Company maintains a valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets in certain jurisdictions. A valuation allowance is required when, based upon an assessment of various factors including recent operating loss history, anticipated future earnings, and prudent and reasonable tax planning strategies, it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

In conjunction with the Company’s ongoing review of its actual results and anticipated future earnings, the Company continuously reassesses the possibility of releasing the remaining valuation allowance currently in place on its deferred tax assets. It is reasonably possible that a significant portion of the valuation allowance will be released within the next twelve months. Such a release will be reported as a reduction to income tax expense without any impact on cash flows in the quarter in which it is released.

2011 Restructuring

In November 2011, the Company announced a strategic initiative (“2011 restructuring”), which aims to consolidate operations to reduce our cost structure and improve operational efficiency. As part of this initiative, the Company expects to eliminate up to 12 facilities through consolidation of certain manufacturing, sales and distribution facilities and exit of businesses. Four facilities have been eliminated as of June 29, 2012. The Company expects to substantially complete the consolidation and exit of up to eight additional facilities in 2012 and 2013. Six of these facilities will be exited as a consequence of the expected sale of the Semiconductor Systems and Laser Systems businesses. During the three and six months ended June 29, 2012, the Company recorded restructuring costs of $2.4 million and $4.7 million, respectively. Cash charges, including severance and relocation costs, facility closure costs and consulting costs related to restructuring efforts were $1.8 million and $2.8 million for the three and six months ended June 29, 2012, respectively. Non-cash charges related to accelerated depreciation for changes in estimated useful lives of certain long-lived assets for which the Company intends to exit were $0.6 million and $1.9 million for the three and six months ended June 29, 2012, respectively. The Company expects to incur cash charges from continuing operations of $4.5 million to $5.5 million related to the 2011 restructuring plan, of which $3.8 million had been recorded through June 29, 2012. Additionally, the Company expects to incur non-cash restructuring charges from continuing operations, related to accelerated depreciation, of $2.8 million to $3.5 million, of which $2.8 million had been recorded through June 29, 2012.

Germany Restructuring

As a result of restructuring programs undertaken in prior years for the Company’s Munich, Germany facility within the Precision Motion and Technologies segment, the Company has a $0.4 million accrual for its remaining lease obligations as of June 29, 2012. The Company recorded charges of less than $0.1 million during both the three and six months ended June 29, 2012 related to the accretion of the restructuring liability. During the three and six months ended July 1, 2011, the Company recorded $(0.1) million and $0.1 million, respectively, of restructuring (benefits) charges related to the accretion of the restructuring liability and revised future lease payment assumptions. As of June 29, 2012, the cumulative expense related to this restructuring plan is $4.7 million.

14. Commitments and Contingencies

Operating Leases

The Company leases certain equipment and facilities under operating lease agreements. There have been no material changes to the Company’s operating leases or other commitments through June 29, 2012 from those discussed in Note 12 to Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, other than the new seven-year lease agreement for the existing Bedford facility signed in May 2012. Under the terms of the new lease, the lease term is extended from May 2013 to May 2019. The Company will pay annual rent of $1.5 million through the end of the lease term.

Legal Proceedings

During the third quarter of 2005, the Company’s French subsidiary, GSI Lumonics SARL (“GSI France”), filed for bankruptcy protection, which was granted on July 7, 2005. On April 18, 2006, the commercial court of Le Creusot (France) ordered GSI France to pay approximately 0.7 million Euros to SCGI in the context of a claim filed by SCGI that a Laserdyne 890 system delivered in 1999 had unresolved technical problems. No appeal was lodged. On May 6, 2011, GSI Group Ltd. was served with summons from the official receiver of GSI France demanding that GSI Group Ltd. and the Company’s German subsidiary, GSI Group GmbH, appear before the Paris commercial court. GSI Group GmbH was subsequently served with a separate summons from the official receiver. The cases against GSI Group Ltd. and GSI Group GmbH were subsequently combined into a single case (docket number 2011/088718). The receiver claimed (i) that the bankruptcy proceedings initiated against GSI France in 2005 should be extended to GSI Group Ltd. and GSI Group GmbH on the ground that GSI France’s decisions were actually made by GSI Group Ltd. and that GSI Group GmbH made financial advances for no consideration, which would reveal in both cases confusion of personhood, or

(ii) alternatively, that GSI Group Ltd. be ordered to pay approximately 3.1 million Euros (i.e. the aggregate of GSI France’s liabilities, consisting primarily of approximately 0.7 million Euros to SCGI and approximately 2.4 million Euros to GSI Group GmbH) on the ground that GSI Group Ltd. is liable in tort for having disposed of GSI France’s assets freely and for having paid all of GSI France’s debts except for the liability to SCGI. On June 19, 2012, the receiver withdrew its claim with respect to extending the bankruptcy proceedings to GSI Group Ltd. and GSI Group GmbH, and as a result only the tort claim remains pending before the court. The Company currently does not believe a loss is probable. Accordingly, no accrual has been made in the Company’s accompanying consolidated financial statements with respect to this claim.

The Company is also subject to various legal proceedings and claims that arise in the ordinary course of business. The Company does not believe that the outcome of these claims will have a material adverse effect upon its financial condition or results of operations but there can be no assurance that any such claims, or any similar claims, would not have a material adverse effect upon its financial condition or results of operations.

IRS Claim

On April 5, 2010, the IRS filed amended proofs of claim aggregating approximately $7.7 million with the Bankruptcy Court as part of the Company’s proceedings under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. On July 13, 2010, the Company filed a complaint, GSI Group Corporation v. United States of America, in Bankruptcy Court in an attempt to recover refunds totaling approximately $18.8 million in federal income taxes the Company asserts it overpaid to the IRS relating to tax years 2000 through 2008, together with applicable interest. The complaint includes an objection to the IRS’ proofs of claim which the Company believes are not allowable claims and should be expunged in their entirety. Those tax proceedings remain pending, and their resolution in the ordinary course was not affected by the closing of the Chapter 11 Cases.

Guarantees and Indemnifications

In the normal course of its operations, the Company executes agreements that provide for indemnification and guarantees to counterparties in transactions such as business dispositions, sale of assets, sale of products and operating leases. Additionally, the by-laws of the Company require it to indemnify certain current or former directors, officers, and employees of the Company against expenses incurred by them in connection with each proceeding in which he or she is involved as a result of serving or having served in certain capacities. Indemnification is not available with respect to a proceeding as to which it has been adjudicated that the person did not act in good faith in the reasonable belief that the action was in the best interests of the Company. On June 5, 2009, the Board of Directors of the Company approved a form of indemnification agreement to be implemented by the Company with respect to its directors and officers. The form of indemnification agreement provides, among other things, that each director and officer of the Company who signs the indemnification agreement shall be indemnified to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law against all expenses, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such officer or director in connection with any proceeding by reason of his or her relationship with the Company. In addition, the form of indemnification agreement provides for the advancement of expenses incurred by such director or officer in connection with any proceeding covered by the indemnification agreement, subject to the conditions set forth therein and to the extent such advancement is not prohibited by law. The indemnification agreement also sets out the procedures for determining entitlement to indemnification, the requirements relating to notice and defense of claims for which indemnification is sought, the procedures for enforcement of indemnification rights, the limitations on and exclusions from indemnification, and the minimum levels of directors’ and officers’ liability insurance to be maintained by the Company.

15. Segment Information

Reportable Segments

The Company evaluates the performance of and allocates resources to its segments based on sales and gross profit. The Company reports operating expenses and assets on a consolidated basis to the chief operating decision maker, which is the Chief Executive Officer. The Company’s reportable segments have been identified based on commonality of end markets, customers and technologies amongst the Company’s individual product lines, which is consistent with the Company’s operating structure and associated management structure.

The Company previously operated in three reportable segments: Laser Products, Precision Motion and Technologies and Semiconductor Systems. The Company committed to a plan for the sale of the Semiconductor Systems and Laser Systems businesses in the second quarter of 2012. As a result, these businesses have been reported as discontinued operations in the consolidated financial statements. Reportable segment financial information has been revised to exclude these businesses. The remaining reportable segments and their principal activities consist of the following:

Laser Products

The Laser Products segment designs, manufactures and markets photonics-based solutions to customers worldwide. The segment serves highly demanding photonics-based applications such as cutting, welding, marking and scientific research. The segment sells these products both directly utilizing a highly technical sales force and indirectly through resellers and distributors.

The MD&A contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In addition to historical financial information, the following discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, anticipated financial performance; expected liquidity and capitalization; expectations regarding our restructuring plans; drivers of revenue growth; management’s plans and objectives for future operations, expenditures and product development and investments in research and development; business prospects; potential of future product releases; anticipated sales performance; industry trends; market conditions; changes in accounting principles and changes in actual or assumed tax liabilities; expectations regarding tax exposure; anticipated reinvestment of future earnings; anticipated expenditures in regard to the Company’s benefit plans; future acquisitions and dispositions and anticipated benefits from prior acquisitions; anticipated outcomes of legal proceedings and litigation matters; and anticipated use of currency hedges. These forward-looking statements are neither promises nor guarantees, but involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements for many reasons, including, but not limited to, the following: economic and political conditions and the effects of these conditions on our customers’ businesses and level of business activity; our significant dependence upon our customers’ capital expenditures, which are subject to cyclical market fluctuations; our dependence upon our ability to respond to fluctuations in product demand; our ability to continually innovate; delays in our delivery of new products; our reliance upon third party distribution channels subject to credit, business concentration and business failure risks beyond our control; fluctuations in our quarterly results, and our failure to meet or exceed the expectations of securities analysts or investors; customer order timing and other similar factors beyond our control; changes in interest rates, credit ratings or foreign currency exchange rates; risk associated with our operations in foreign countries; our increased use of outsourcing in foreign countries; our failure to comply with local import and export regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate; our history of operating losses and our ability to sustain our profitability; our exposure to the credit risk of some of our customers and in weakened markets; violations of our intellectual property rights and our ability to protect our intellectual property against infringement by third parties; risk of losing our competitive advantage; our ability to make acquisitions or divestitures that provide business benefits; our failure to successfully integrate future acquisitions into our business; our ability to retain key personnel; our restructuring and realignment activities and disruptions to our operations as a result of consolidation of our operations; product defects or problems integrating our products with other vendors’ products; disruptions in the supply of or defects in raw materials, certain key components or other goods from our suppliers; production difficulties and product delivery delays or disruptions; changes in governmental regulation of our business or products; disruption in our information technology systems or our failure to implement new systems and software successfully; our failure to realize the full value of our intangible assets; any requirement to make additional tax payments and/or recalculate certain of our tax attributes depending on the resolution of the complaint we filed against the U.S. government; our ability to utilize our net operating loss carryforwards and other tax attributes; fluctuations in our effective tax rates and audit of our estimates of tax liabilities; being subject to U.S. federal income taxation even though we are a non-U.S. corporation; being subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax for U.S. federal income tax purposes; any need for additional capital to adequately respond to business challenges or opportunities and repay or refinance our existing indebtedness, which may not be available on acceptable terms or at all; volatility in the market for our common shares; our dependence on significant cash flow to service our indebtedness and fund our operations; our ability to access cash and other assets of our subsidiaries; the influence over our business of several significant shareholders; provisions of our articles of incorporation may delay or prevent a change in control; our significant existing indebtedness and restrictions in our new senior secured credit agreement that may limit our ability to engage in certain activities; our intention not to pay dividends in the near future; and our failure to maintain appropriate internal controls in the future. Other important risk factors that could affect the outcome of the events set forth in these statements and that could affect the Company’s operating results and financial condition are discussed in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, and elsewhere in such Annual Report on Form 10-K.

expanding operating margins by establishing a continuous improvement culture through formalized productivity programs and initiatives; and attracting, retaining, and developing talented and motivated employees.

Significant Events and Updates

Discontinued Operations

Beginning in 2011, we conducted a strategic review of our businesses to focus our growth priorities and simplify our business model. In June 2012, we committed to a plan for the sale of the Semiconductor Systems operating segment, sold under the GSI brand name, and Laser Systems product lines, sold under the Control Laser and Baublys brand names. We expect to sell these businesses within twelve months. We began accounting for these businesses as discontinued operations in the second quarter of 2012 and all current and prior period income statement information presented has been revised to reflect the results of these businesses as discontinued operations.

2011 Restructuring Plan Update

We have continued to make progress on our 2011 restructuring program that began in the fourth quarter of 2011, with a goal of eliminating up to twelve (12) facilities. These reductions are expected to be achieved through a combination of site consolidations and divestitures, with divestitures resulting in the elimination of up to six facilities. Four facilities have been eliminated as of June 29, 2012. During the second quarter of 2012, we completed the transfer of our specialty lasers production activities from our East Setauket, New York facility to our Santa Clara, California facility, began executing on the consolidation of our German operations, and substantially completed the closure of our optics production facility in California. In addition, we continue to make progress in the consolidation of our laser scanners business into our Bedford, Massachusetts facility.

We incurred $2.4 million and $4.7 million of charges during the three and six months ended June 29, 2012, respectively, related to the 2011 restructuring plan. These consisted of cash charges of $1.8 million and $2.8 million, respectively, and non-cash charges of $0.6 million and $1.9 million, respectively, primarily related to accelerated depreciation resulting from changes in estimated useful lives of certain long-lived assets for which we intend to exit.

We expect to incur cash charges of $4.5 million to $5.5 million related to the 2011 restructuring plan, of which $3.8 million had been recorded through June 29, 2012. Additionally, we expect to incur non-cash restructuring charges, related to accelerated depreciation, of $2.8 million to $3.5 million, of which $2.8 million had been recorded through June 29, 2012. We expect to substantially complete the consolidation and exit of up to eight additional facilities in 2012 and 2013. A total of $0.8 million and $1.3 million of restructuring expenses for the three and six months ended June 29, 2012, respectively, were reclassified into discontinued operations. A total of $1.4 million of cumulative restructuring expenses recorded through June 29, 2012 were reclassified into discontinued operations.

Overview of Financial Results

Overall sales for the three months ended June 29, 2012 decreased $12.2 million, or 15%, compared to the prior year comparable period primarily as a result of significant end-market pressures from a steep downturn in the microelectronics markets towards the end of 2011 which, we believe, had peaked in the first half of 2011, particularly in the printed circuit board (“PCB”) market. To a lesser extent, the decrease was attributable to lower specialty laser sales, which serve scientific end markets. The year-over-year comparison is also affected significantly by our adoption of Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-13, “Revenue Recognition (Topic 605) – Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements” (“ASU 2009-13”), which amended the revenue recognition guidance for multi-element arrangements. Following our adoption of ASU 2009-13 as of the beginning of 2011, we did not defer any revenue on new multiple-element orders received from customers during the period but delivered over multiple periods. For orders that had been deferred under multi-element arrangements, delivered over multiple periods, entered into prior to the adoption of ASU 2009-13, we recognized $4.2 million of net revenue with net gross profit of $1.5 million in the three months ended July 1, 2011, with no comparable amount for the three months ended June 29, 2012.

Income from operations for the three months ended June 29, 2012 of $5.1 million decreased $6.4 million, or 56%, versus the prior year comparable period. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in gross margin as a result of lower sales, product mix, and a $2.4 million charge in connection with our 2011 restructuring program, compared to a $0.1 million restructuring benefit for the prior year comparable period. Partially offsetting the decrease in income from operations was lower spending on selling, general, and administrative costs and savings resulting from restructuring actions taken in the fourth quarter of 2011 and the first half of 2012.

Diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) from continuing operations of $0.13 in the three months ended June 29, 2012 decreased $0.08 from the prior year comparable period largely because of a decrease in operating profit of $6.4 million. The decrease in operating profit was partially offset by a $2.7 million reduction in interest expense for the three months ended June 29, 2012 as a result of the reduction and refinancing of our debt during the second half of 2011.

Laser Products

Laser Products segment sales for the three months ended June 29, 2012 decreased by $3.7 million, or 12.3%, primarily due to a significant decline in sales of our specialty lasers, sold into the scientific markets. This business line was negatively impacted by a delay in research funding to our customers in the scientific market, particularly in Europe, and some interruption from the Company’s 2011 restructuring initiative. Although overall Laser Products sales decreased, we are seeing significant demand for our fiber lasers, which increased significantly versus the prior year comparable period.

Laser Products segment sales for the six months ended June 29, 2012 decreased by $4.8 million, or 8.5%, due to similar business dynamics to those we experienced during the three months ended June 29, 2012.

Precision Motion and Technologies

Precision Motion and Technologies segment sales for the three months ended June 29, 2012 decreased by $8.6 million, or 16.3%, primarily due to a decrease in demand in the microelectronics markets beginning at the end of 2011, with a particularly sharp decline in demand for our printed circuit board spindles. While many of our business lines began experiencing stronger demand, the over 40% decline in our air bearing spindles business line has more than offset their improvements. Furthermore, the decrease in sales was also attributable to approximately $3.6 million of net revenue recognized in the three months ended July 1, 2011, with no comparable amount for the three months ended June 29, 2012, for orders that had been deferred under multiple-element arrangements, delivered over multiple periods, entered into prior to the adoption of ASU 2009-13.

Precision Motion and Technologies segment sales for the six months ended June 29, 2012 decreased by $19.7 million, or 19.1%, due to similar business dynamics we experienced in the three months ended June 29, 2012. Similarly, we recognized approximately $5.7 million of net revenue during the six months ended July 1, 2011, with no comparable amount for the six months ended June 29, 2012, for orders that had been deferred under multiple-element arrangements, delivered over multiple periods, entered into prior to the adoption of ASU 2009-13.

Table of Contents

Gross profit and gross profit margin can be influenced by a number of factors, including product mix, pricing, volume, manufacturing efficiencies and utilization, costs for raw materials and outsourced manufacturing, headcount, inventory and warranty expenses, and shipping and handling costs, at any particular time.

Laser Products

Laser Products segment gross profit for the three months ended June 29, 2012 decreased $3.7 million, or 30.2%, primarily due to the 12.3% decrease in sales. Laser Products segment gross profit margin was 32.7% for the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared with a gross profit margin of 41.1% for the prior year comparable period. The 8.4 percentage point decrease in gross profit margin was primarily attributable to a decrease in manufacturing capacity utilization from lower specialty laser sales and a significant ramp-up in manufacturing costs for our fiber lasers business line to meet the demand expectations for this business over the next twelve months.

Laser Products segment gross profit for the six months ended June 29, 2012 decreased by $4.6 million, or 20.5%. Laser Products segment gross profit margin was 34.4% during the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared with a gross profit margin of 39.6% during the prior year comparable period. The decrease in gross profit and gross profit margin was due to similar factors that affected our gross profit and gross profit margins during the three months ended June 29, 2012.

Precision Motion and Technologies

Precision Motion and Technologies segment gross profit for the three months ended June 29, 2012 decreased $2.9 million, or 11.5%, due to the 16.3% decrease in sales. The Precision Motion and Technologies segment gross profit margin was 50.6% during the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared with a gross profit margin of 47.9% during the prior year comparable period. The 2.7 percentage point increase in gross profit margin was attributable to a change in product mix and the completion of amortization for certain intangible assets. The increase in the gross profit percentage was offset by approximately $1.3 million of net gross profit recognized during the three months ended July 1, 2011, with no comparable amount for the three months ended June 29, 2012, for orders that had been deferred under multiple-element arrangements, delivered over multiple periods, entered into prior to the adoption of ASU 2009-13.

Precision Motion and Technologies segment gross profit for the six months ended June 29, 2012 decreased by $8.3 million, or 16.9%. The Precision Motion and Technologies segment gross profit margin was 48.9% during the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared with a gross profit margin of 47.7% during the prior year comparable period. The overall decrease in gross profit was due to the overall net decrease in sales and approximately $2.3 million of net gross profit recognized during the six months ended July 1, 2011, with no comparable amount for the six months ended June 29, 2012, for orders that had been deferred under multiple-element arrangements, delivered over multiple periods, entered into prior to the adoption of ASU 2009-13.

Research and Development and Engineering Expenses

Research and development and engineering (“R&D”) expenses are primarily comprised of employee compensation and related expenses and R&D materials. R&D expenses were $5.6 million, or 8.0% of sales, for the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared with $5.9 million, or 7.1% of sales, during the prior year comparable period. R&D expenses decreased in terms of total dollars as a result of savings achieved through the closure of our East Setauket, New York facility, which is part of the 2011 restructuring plan.

Table of Contents

R&D expenses for the six months ended June 29, 2012 were $11.4 million, or 8.4% of sales, compared with $11.8 million, or 7.3% of sales, during the prior year comparable period. R&D expenses, in terms of total dollars, decreased as a result of savings achieved from our 2011 restructuring plan.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses include costs for sales and marketing, sales administration, finance, human resources, legal, information systems, facilities and executive management. SG&A expenses were $16.8 million, or 23.9% of sales, during the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared with $18.6 million, or 22.6% of sales, during the prior year comparable period. SG&A expenses, in terms of total dollars, decreased between periods primarily as a result of decreases in certain professional fees and savings from actions taken as part of the Company’s 2011 restructuring plan.

SG&A expenses were $33.0 million, or 24.4% of sales, during the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared with $35.4 million, or 22.1% of sales, during the prior year comparable period. SG&A expenses, in terms of total dollars, decreased primarily as a result of a decrease in professional service fees, a decrease in sales commissions due to a decline in sales and, to a lesser extent, savings from actions taken as part of the Company’s 2011 restructuring plan.

Amortization of Purchased Intangible Assets

Amortization of purchased intangible assets, excluding the amortization for core technology that is included in cost of goods sold, was $0.7 million, or 0.9% of sales, during the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared with $1.0 million, or 1.2% of sales, during the prior year comparable period. The decreases, in terms of total dollars and as a percentage of sales, were related to the completion of amortization related to non-compete agreements acquired as part of the 2008 Excel acquisition.

Amortization of purchased intangible assets, excluding the amortization for core technology that is included in cost of goods sold, was $1.3 million, or 1.0% of sales, during the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared with $2.0 million, or 1.2% of sales, during the prior year comparable period. Consistent with the three months ended June 29, 2012, the decrease in terms of total dollars was due to the completion of amortization related to non-compete agreements acquired as part of the 2008 Excel acquisition.

Restructuring, Restatement Related Costs and Other

We recorded restructuring, restatement related costs and other charges of $2.5 million during the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared with $(0.1) million during the prior year comparable period. During the three months ended June 29, 2012, we recorded a $2.4 million restructuring charge related to our 2011 restructuring program. Cash related charges, primarily severance, facility and other related costs, totaled $1.8 million, while non-cash charges, primarily related to accelerated depreciation for changes in estimated useful lives of certain long-lived assets for which we intend to exit, totaled $0.6 million. During the prior year comparable period, we recorded a $0.1 million restructuring benefit related to revised assumptions for our abandoned facility in Germany.

We recorded restructuring, restatement related costs and other charges of $4.7 million during the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared with $0.1 million during the prior year comparable period. During the six months ended June 29, 2012, we recorded a $4.7 million restructuring charge related to our 2011 restructuring program. Cash related charges, primarily severance, facility and other related costs, totaled $2.8 million while non-cash charges, primarily related to accelerated depreciation for changes in estimated useful lives of certain long-lived assets for which we intend to exit, totaled $1.9 million. During the prior year comparable period, we recorded a $0.1 million restructuring charge related to revised assumptions for our abandoned facility in Germany.

Interest Expense, Net

The decrease in net interest expense was attributable to the substantial reduction and refinancing of our debt during 2011, which was achieved through partial redemptions of our 12.25% Senior Secured PIK Elections Notes (the “2014 Notes”), which carried a 12.25% fixed interest rate, the refinancing of the remaining 2014 Notes, and repayments on our new variable rate Senior Credit Facility, which carried an approximate 2.9% weighted average interest rate as of June 29, 2012. During the three months ended June 29, 2012 and July 1, 2011, we incurred $0.3 million and $0.1 million, respectively, of non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of deferred financing costs.

 

21


Table of Contents

The dynamics affecting our decrease in interest expense, net during the three months ended June 29, 2012 also impacted interest expense during the six month period. During the six months ended June 29, 2012, we incurred $0.5 million of non-cash interest expense primarily related to the amortization of deferred financing costs. During the six months ended July 1, 2011, we incurred $0.5 million of non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of deferred financing costs and PIK interest of $0.3 million related to the 2014 Notes.

Foreign Exchange Transaction Gains (Losses), Net

Foreign currency transaction gains (losses), net, were $0.6 million during the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared to ($0.1) million during prior year comparable period, due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against several foreign currencies during both periods.

Similar market factors experienced during the three months ended June 29, 2012 impacted the fluctuation of foreign currency translation gains (losses), net, during the six months ended June 29, 2012 of ($0.3) million, compared to ($0.8) million during the prior year comparable period.

Other Income (Expense), Net

Other income (expense), net, was less than $0.1 million during the three months ended June 29, 2012, compared to $0.4 million during the prior year comparable period, and is related to the earnings on our equity investment.

Other income (expense), net, was $0.2 million during the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared to $1.4 million during the prior year comparable period, and is related to the earnings on our equity investment.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the three months ended June 29, 2012 was a provision of 12.1%, compared to a provision of 16.4% for the prior year comparable period. The effective tax rate for the three months ended June 29, 2012 reflects our estimated annual effective tax rate and differs from the Canadian statutory rate of 25.0% primarily due to the income earned in jurisdictions with varying tax rates, an increase in our liability for uncertain tax positions, and the release of a portion of our valuation allowance.

The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 29, 2012 was a provision of 13.3%, compared to a provision of 20.4% for the prior year comparable period. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 29, 2012 reflects our estimated annual effective tax rate and differs from the Canadian statutory rate of 25.0% due to similar factors impacting our effective tax rate for the three months ended June 29, 2012.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We assess our liquidity in terms of our ability to generate cash to fund our operating, investing, and financing activities. Our primary ongoing cash requirements are funding operations, capital expenditures, investments in businesses, and repayment of our debt and related interest expense. Our primary sources of liquidity are internally generated cash flows and borrowings under our revolving credit facility. We believe our future operating cash flows will be sufficient to meet our future operating and investing cash needs for the foreseeable future, including at least the next twelve months. The availability of borrowings under our revolving credit facility provides an additional potential source of liquidity should it be required. In addition, we may seek to raise additional capital, which could be in the form of bonds, convertible debt or equity, to fund business development activities or other future investing cash requirements.

Significant factors affecting the management of our ongoing cash requirements are the adequacy of available bank lines of credit and our ability to attract long-term capital with satisfactory terms. The sources of our liquidity are subject to all of the risks of our business and could be adversely affected by, among other factors, a decrease in demand for our products, our ability to integrate future acquisitions, deterioration in certain financial ratios, and market changes in general. See “Risks Relating to Our Common Shares and Our Capital Structure” included in Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

Although much of our business is conducted through our subsidiaries, none of our subsidiaries are obligated to make funds available to us. Accordingly, our ability to make payments on our indebtedness and fund our operations may be dependent on the earnings and the distribution of funds from our subsidiaries. As of June 29, 2012, $33.6 million of our $55.8 million cash and cash equivalents was held by our subsidiaries outside of Canada and the United States. Generally, our intent is to use cash held in these foreign subsidiaries to fund our local operations. Further, local laws, regulations and/or terms of our indebtedness may also restrict certain of our subsidiaries from paying dividends or otherwise transferring assets to us. However, in certain instances, we have identified excess cash for which we may repatriate and we have established deferred tax liabilities for the expected tax cost.

Table of Contents

During the six months ended June 29, 2012, we made total debt payments of $15.0 million, comprised of our $5.0 million contractual term loan payments ($2.5 million per quarter) and a $10.0 million optional repayment of borrowings under the revolving credit facility, leaving a total principal debt outstanding on the Senior Credit Facility of $53.0 million at June 29, 2012, compared to $68.0 million at December 31, 2011.

The Credit Agreement applicable to our Senior Credit Facility contains various covenants that we believe are usual and customary for this type of agreement. The Senior Credit Facility includes a maximum allowed leverage ratio and a minimum required fixed charge coverage ratio. On July 19, 2012, the Company entered into an amendment to the Credit Agreement (the “Second Amendment”). The Second Amendment provides that the Company has satisfied the Burnoff Condition (as defined in the Credit Agreement) contained in the Credit Agreement effective as of July 19, 2012, which eliminates the requirement for the Company to meet the borrowing base financial restriction and minimum EBIDTA covenant contained in the Credit Agreement. We were compliant with the covenant requirements as of June 29, 2012. The following table summarizes these financial covenant requirements and our compliance as of June 29, 2012:

Operating Cash Flows

Cash provided by operating activities was $18.9 million for the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared to $17.9 million for the prior year comparable period. The cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended June 29, 2012 was primarily attributable to our consolidated net income of $6.3 million and non-cash adjustments amounting to $12.5 million. These non-cash adjustments included depreciation and amortization expenses of $7.2 million; stock-based compensation of $2.3 million; and non-cash restructuring charges of $2.5 million. Our working capital increased $0.1 million from December 31, 2011 to June 29, 2012 and was largely the result of a decrease to deferred revenue of $3.6 million, an increase to net inventory of $2.7 million and an increase to accounts receivable of $2.8 million. These changes were offset by an increase to accounts payable of $7.4 million and a decrease to prepaid expenses and other current assets of $1.3 million. The increase in inventory relates to our industrial lasers as the Company is building inventory to reduce customer lead times. The increase in accounts receivable was primarily driven by the increase in revenues from the fourth quarter of 2011. Lastly, our accounts payable balance significantly increased as a result of better management of our vendor payments.

Investing Cash Flows

Cash used in investing activities was $2.4 million during the six months ended June 29, 2012, compared to $1.7 million during the six months ended July 1, 2011 and primarily relates to capital expenditures. Cash outflows from investing activities during the six months ended June 29, 2012 were offset by $0.2 million of cash received from the sale of fixed assets during the period.

Financing Cash Flows

Cash used in financing activities was $15.4 million during the six months ended June 29, 2012, comprised of $5.0 million for our contractual term loan payments ($2.5 million per quarter), a $10.0 million optional revolving credit facility payment, and $0.4 million of capital lease payments. We had no financing activities during the six months ended July 1, 2011.

Table of Contents

We are contractually obligated and expect to use $6.1 million of cash for the remainder of 2012 for financing activities, comprised of $5.0 million for our quarterly contractual term loan payments and $1.1 million for our capital lease obligations.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements, Contractual Obligations

Contractual Obligations

Our contractual obligations primarily consist of the principal and interest associated with our debt, operating and capital leases, purchase commitments and pension obligations. Such contractual obligations are described in our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, each included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. Through June 29, 2012, we have not entered into any material new or modified contractual obligations since the end of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, with the exception of the new seven-year lease agreement signed in May 2012 for the Company’s Bedford, Massachusetts headquarters and the Second Amendment to the Credit Agreement signed in July 2012. Under the terms of the new lease, the lease term is extended from May 2013 to May 2019. The Company will pay annual rent of $1.5 million through the end of the lease term.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

Through June 29, 2012, we have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements or material transactions with unconsolidated entities or other persons.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The critical accounting policies that we believe impact significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements presented in this report are described in our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, each included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies through June 29, 2012 from those discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

PART II—OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

During the third quarter of 2005, the Company’s French subsidiary, GSI Lumonics SARL (“GSI France”), filed for bankruptcy protection, which was granted on July 7, 2005. On April 18, 2006, the commercial court of Le Creusot (France) ordered GSI France to pay approximately 0.7 million Euros to SCGI in the context of a claim filed by SCGI that a Laserdyne 890 system delivered in 1999 had unresolved technical problems. No appeal was lodged. On May 6, 2011, GSI Group Ltd. was served with summons from the official receiver of GSI France demanding that GSI Group Ltd. and the Company’s German subsidiary, GSI Group GmbH, appear before the Paris commercial court. GSI Group GmbH was subsequently served with a separate summons from the official receiver. The cases against GSI Group Ltd. and GSI Group GmbH were subsequently combined into a single case (docket number 2011/088718). The receiver claimed (i) that the bankruptcy proceedings initiated against GSI France in 2005 should be extended to GSI Group Ltd. and GSI Group GmbH on the ground that GSI France’s decisions were actually made by GSI Group Ltd. and that GSI Group GmbH made financial advances for no consideration, which would reveal in both cases confusion of personhood, or (ii) alternatively, that GSI Group Ltd. be ordered to pay approximately 3.1 million Euros (i.e. the aggregate of GSI France’s liabilities, consisting primarily of approximately 0.7 million Euros to SCGI and approximately 2.4 million Euros to GSI Group GmbH) on the ground that GSI Group Ltd. is liable in tort for having disposed of GSI France’s assets freely and for having paid all of GSI France’s debts except for the liability to SCGI. On June 19, 2012, the receiver withdrew its claim with respect to extending the bankruptcy proceedings to GSI Group Ltd. and GSI Group GmbH, and as a result only the tort claim remains pending before the court. The Company currently does not believe a loss is probable. Accordingly, no accrual has been made in the Company’s accompanying consolidated financial statements with respect to this claim.

The Company is also subject to various legal proceedings and claims that arise in the ordinary course of business. The Company does not believe that the outcome of these claims will have a material adverse effect upon its financial condition or results of operations but there can be no assurance that any such claims, or any similar claims, would not have a material adverse effect upon its financial condition or results of operations.

On April 5, 2010, the IRS filed amended proofs of claim aggregating approximately $7.7 million with the United States Bankruptcy Court for Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”) as part of the Company’s proceedings under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. On July 13, 2010, the Company filed a complaint, GSI Group Corporation v. United States of America, in Bankruptcy Court in an attempt to recover refunds totaling approximately $18.8 million in federal income taxes the Company asserts it overpaid to the IRS relating to tax years 2000 through 2008, together with applicable interest. The complaint includes an objection to the IRS proofs of claim which the Company believes are not allowable claims and should be expunged in their entirety. Those tax proceedings remain pending, and their resolution in the ordinary course was not affected by the closing of the Chapter 11 Cases on September 2, 2011.
