*This press release includes references to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and gross margin, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. A "non-GAAP financial measure" is generally defined as a numerical measure of a company's historical or future performance that excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments, so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Our management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in this press release in the accompanying tables. A more complete explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Management Comments

Jim Gaynor, President and Chief Executive Officer of LightPath, commented, "LightPath continued to make progress in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 with the implementation of strategies to deliver global diversified growth and solid cash flow generation. Our diversification initiatives have proven prescient in that consolidated revenues increased 51% in the quarter amid declining sales in certain vertical markets which are traditionally some of our fastest growing areas."

"Sales of infrared products, one of our two key product groups, increased by $3.1 million or 579% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017, primarily due to the acquisition of ISP Optics Corporation ("ISP") in December 2016. We believe the acquisition of ISP is a transformative event for the Company given its contributions to our consolidated financial results and the longer term opportunities it provides for our technology roadmap and market share expansion. We view infrared products as one of our key product groups because these products have the long-term attributes of addressing faster growing and larger markets."

"Our other key product group, consisting of precision molded optics and other related product lines, experienced lower sales, primarily reflecting prior inventory builds in China and the United States by specific customers in the telecommunications and data communications industry as well as delays in the timing of orders for certain defense products. Our customers are forecasting recovery in the telecommunications and data communications industry during the second half of fiscal 2018 as China begins investing to upgrade its wireless networks to 5G."

"Non-recurring engineering ("NRE") revenue increased 95% to approximately $250,000 in the fiscal 2018 first quarter. Included in our NRE revenue during the quarter were projects relating to new designs for a major customer for the 5G buildout in China, so we are very excited by the growth potential this represents. NRE, while recorded as revenue, is essentially paid research which, when combined with our research and development expenses, further strengthens our intellectual property. As part of our investments in global growth initiatives, research and product development spending increased by 37% to $381,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, as compared to the first quarter of last year. Our research and development spending in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 remained consistent with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. This level of spending is within our target range, which we believe is necessary to bolster our technological leadership. Some of the focal areas of our product development efforts include advanced driver assistance systems or ADAS; light distance and ranging or LIDAR sensing; and spectrographic and fiber delivery technologies. Many of these products are being designed for higher margin applications within the automotive electronics, healthcare and defense sectors."

"Other planned spending increases include the higher sales and marketing expenses in the first quarter which are costs that we incurred now that are intended to deliver forward revenue generation as we bring our expanded product portfolio to market. As we anticipate bringing more new products to market and higher volumes for our existing product lines, we expect capital expenditures for fiscal 2018 to increase as compared to previous years. The majority of this spending is front loaded, including approximately $1.4 million that we spent in the first quarter primarily for new machines, a substantial increase in our manufacturing capacity and process improvement investments."

"In the first quarter, we remained committed to disciplined growth and performance, which factored in the higher spending and consolidated revenues with lower contributions from certain product lines. Our strong performance absorbed the lower than expected gross margins resulting primarily from one-time production yield shortfalls which have now been resolved and price concessions due to competitive pressure. We expect our gross margins to benefit in subsequent periods from the correction of these shortfalls and our success in obtaining increased volumes in return for the lower pricing. Collectively, our fiscal 2018 first quarter gross profit increased substantially year-over-year although our gross margin as a percentage of revenue declined as a result of the non-systemic yield issue."

"Our adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact from the non-cash warrant liability, increased 99% from the prior year and improved on a margin basis to 16% as a percentage of revenue as compared to 12% in the prior year period. Operating cash flow was very strong with an increase of 80% to $1.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared to $922,000 in the prior year period. We remain solidly on track with our fiscal 2018 goal of growing responsibly through the diversification of our business lines and effectively managing our costs and performance measures."

Financial Results for Three Months Ended September 30, 2017 Compared to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2016

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was approximately $7.6 million, an increase of approximately $2.6 million, or 51%, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase from the first quarter of the prior fiscal year is attributable to (i) an approximately $3.1 million increase, or 579%, in revenues generated by infrared products, primarily attributable to ISP and, (ii) an approximately $126,000 increase, or 95%, in revenues from NRE projects. These increases were partially offset by (i) an approximately $391,000 decrease, or 18%, in sales of low volume precision molded optics ("LVPMO") lenses primarily attributable to the high-end telecommunications, data communications, and defense industries (ii) an approximately $39,000 decrease, or 3%, in sales of high volume precision molded optics ("HVPMO") lenses primarily attributable to applications for position sensors, including next generation products and industrial tools, and (iii) a decrease of approximately $234,000, or 35%, in specialty products, primarily due to in the timing of orders in the defense and medical sectors.

Gross margin in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $3.3 million, an increase of 16% as compared to $2.8 million in the prior year period. Gross margin as a percentage of revenue was 43% for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to 57% for the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The change in gross margin as a percentage of revenue is primarily attributable to the inclusion of revenues generated by ISP, and the associated cost of sales. Gross margin as a percentage of revenue with respect to ISP's products historically has been lower than our existing products. In addition, we offered a pricing discount in connection with a large contract in exchange for increased orders from the customer, and we experienced lower yields for certain precision molded optics lenses. We identified and corrected the causes of lower yields. Total cost of sales was approximately $4.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, an increase of approximately $2.1 million as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in total cost of sales is entirely due to the increase in volume of sales, primarily because of the acquisition of ISP.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2018, total costs and expenses were approximately $3.1 million, an increase of approximately $665,000 compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase was primarily due to: (i) a $562,000 increase in expenses related to the acquisition and integration of ISP, including the amortization of intangibles, wages, professional fees, and travel expenses, and (ii) an approximately $103,000 increase in research and development expenses.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we recognized non-cash income of approximately $48,000 related to the change in the fair value of warrants issued in connection with the June 2012 private placement. In the first quarter of fiscal 2017, we recognized non-cash income of approximately $44,000 related to the change in the fair value of these warrants. The applicable accounting rules for the warrant liability requires the recognition of either non-cash expense or non-cash income, which has a significant correlation to the change in the market value of our Class A common stock for the period being reported and the assumptions on when the warrants will be exercised. The likelihood of exercise increases as the expiration date of the warrant approaches. The warrants have a five-year life and will expire in December 2017. The fair value will be re-measured each reporting period until the warrants are exercised or expire.

Income tax expense was approximately $58,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, a decrease of $207,000 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017. We have net operating loss ("NOL") carry forward benefits of approximately $84 million against net income as reported on a consolidated basis in the United States. The NOL does not apply to taxable income from foreign subsidiaries. Income taxes are attributable to our Chinese subsidiaries and to a lesser extent income taxes attributable to ISP's wholly-owned subsidiary, ISP Optics Latvia, SIA ("ISP Latvia"), a limited liability company founded under the Laws of the Republic of Latvia. We accrue income taxes in China and Latvia. Chinese subsidiaries are governed by the Income Tax Law of the People's Republic of China, which is applicable to privately run and foreign invested enterprises, and which generally subjects such enterprises to a statutory rate of 25% on income reported in the statutory financial statements after appropriate tax adjustments. ISP Latvia is governed by the Law of Corporate Income Tax of Latvia, which is applicable to privately run and foreign invested enterprises, and which generally subjects such enterprises to a statutory rate of 15% on income reported in the statutory financial statements after appropriate tax adjustments. The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was 21%, based on the jurisdictional mix.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $218,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted common share, which includes non-cash income of approximately $48,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted common share, related to the change in the fair value of the warrant liability, compared with net income of approximately $140,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted common share, which includes non-cash income of approximately $44,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted common share, related to the change in the fair value of the warrant liability for the same period in fiscal 2017.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was affected by increases in the following: (i) amortization of intangibles, (ii) selling general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses, (iii) interest expense and (iv) new product development costs as compared to the prior year period. All of the amortization of intangibles and a portion of the increase in SG&A expenses during the first quarter of fiscal 2018 were related to the acquisition of ISP.

Adjusted net income, which is adjusted for the effect of the non-cash change in the fair value of the warrant liability, increased to approximately $169,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, as compared to $97,000 in the same period of fiscal 2017.

We had foreign currency exchange income in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 due to changes in the value of the Chinese Yuan and Euro in the amount of approximately $246,000, which had a $0.01 impact on basic and diluted earnings per share, compared to a foreign currency exchange loss of $36,000, which had a $0.00 impact on basic and diluted earnings per share, in the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Weighted-average basic and diluted common shares outstanding increased to 24,235,058 and 26,221,588, respectively, in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 from 15,616,855 and 17,152,771, respectively, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The increase was primarily due to 8 million shares of Class A common stock issued in connection with the acquisition of ISP, as well as shares of Class A common stock issued under the 2014 Employee Stock Purchase Plan, and shares of Class A common stock issued as a result of the exercises of stock options and warrants.

EBITDA for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was approximately $1.3 million compared to approximately $662,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The difference in EBITDA between periods was principally caused by increased revenues and gross margin, partially offset by increased SG&A expenses associated with the acquisition of ISP. Adjusted EBITDA, which eliminates the non-cash income or expense related to the change in fair value of the June 2012 warrant liability, was approximately $1.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, an increase of 99%, as compared with approximately $619,000 for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $8.1 million as of September 30, 2017and June 30, 2017. Cash flow provided by operations was approximately $1.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared with $922,000 in the prior year period. During the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we expended approximately $1.4 million for capital equipment, as compared to $387,000 in the same period last year.

The current ratio as of September 30, 2017 and June 30, 2017 was 3.2 to 1 and 3.4 to 1, respectively. Total stockholders' equity as of September 30, 2017 was approximately $30.2 million, a 1.5% increase compared to approximately $29.7 million as of June 30, 2017. The increase is due to net income, and to a lesser extent, issuances of Class A common stock upon the exercise of warrants and issuances of Class A common stock related to the 2014 Employee Stock Purchase Plan.

As of September 30, 2017, our 12-month backlog was $8.6 million, compared to $9.3 million as of June 30, 2017, a decrease of approximately 8%, as we continued to ship products against some large annual contracts, which are expected to renew within the next two quarters.

*Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, this press release includes references to EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and gross margin, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, see the tables provided in this press release.

A "non-GAAP financial measure" is generally defined as a numerical measure of a company's historical or future performance that excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments, so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze underlying business operations and understand performance. In addition, management may utilize these non-GAAP financial measures as guides in forecasting, budgeting, and planning. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

The Company calculates EBITDA by adjusting net income to exclude net interest expense, income tax expense or benefit, depreciation, and amortization. Similarly, the Company calculates adjusted EBITDA by adjusting net income to exclude net interest expense, income tax expense or benefit, depreciation, amortization, and the change in the fair value of the warrants issued in connection with the private placement in June 2012, which expire in December 2017.

The fair value of the warrants issued in connection with the private placement in 2012 is re-measured each reporting period until the warrants are exercised or expire. Each reporting period, the change in the fair value of these warrants is either recognized as non-cash expense or non-cash income. The change in the fair value of the warrants has a significant correlation to the change in the market value of the Company's Class A common stock for the period being reported and is not impacted by actual operations during such period. Management believes that by excluding the change in the fair value of these warrants enhances the ability of investors to analyze and better understand the underlying business operations and performance.

The Company calculates adjusted net income by adjusting net income to exclude the change in the fair value of the warrants issued in connection with the private placement in June 2012.

The Company calculates gross margin by deducting the cost of sales from operating revenue. Cost of sales includes manufacturing direct and indirect labor, materials, services, fixed costs for rent, utilities and depreciation, and variable overhead. Gross margin should not be considered an alternative to operating income or net income, which is determined in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that gross margin, although a non-GAAP financial measure, is useful and meaningful to investors as a basis for making investment decisions. It provides investors with information that demonstrates cost structure and provides funds for total costs and expenses. The Company uses gross margin in measuring the performance of its business and has historically analyzed and reported gross margin information publicly. Other companies may calculate gross margin in a different manner.

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we provide additional non-GAAP financial measures. Our management believes these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may or could, have a disproportionally positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Our management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze our underlying business operations and understand our performance. In addition, our management may utilize these non-GAAP financial measures as guides in forecasting, budgeting, and planning. Any analysis on non-GAAP financial measures should be used in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.
