FORT COLLINS, Colo., July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:AEIS), today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.
“Our diversification strategy enabled us to maintain revenues at record levels this quarter as our Industrial and Service businesses reached new highs offsetting near-term delays in semiconductor memory spending,” said Yuval Wasserman, president and CEO. “Although we expect 2H revenues to be impacted by the timing of semiconductor investments, we remain confident in the multiple drivers of the semi market in the long term. In addition, as we continue to expand into adjacent and new markets, and grow content in Semiconductor, we are further positioning AE for sustainable, profitable growth.”

This release includes GAAP and non-GAAP income and per-share earnings data and other GAAP and non-GAAP financial information. Advanced Energy’s non-GAAP measures exclude the impact of non-cash related charges such as stock-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets, as well as non-recurring items such as acquisition-related costs. Additionally, the second quarter non-GAAP results exclude estimated income tax expense associated with U.S. tax reform. For the third quarter ending September 30, 2018 guidance, the company expects stock-based compensation of $2.5 million and amortization of intangibles of $1.3 million. The non-GAAP measures included in this release are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, similar measures calculated under generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Advanced Energy believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to management and investors to evaluate business performance without the impacts of certain non-cash charges and other charges which are not part of the company’s usual operations. The company uses these non-GAAP measures to assess performance against business objectives, make business decisions, develop budgets, forecast future periods, assess trends and evaluate financial impacts of various scenarios. In addition, management's incentive plans include these non-GAAP measures as criteria for achievements. Additionally, the company believes that these non-GAAP measures, in combination with its financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, provide investors with additional perspective. While some of the excluded items may be incurred and reflected in the company’s GAAP financial results in the foreseeable future, the company believes that the items excluded from certain non-GAAP measures do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of its continuing operations for the period in which they are incurred. The use of non-GAAP measures has limitations in that such measures do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP, and these measures should only be used to evaluate the company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Please refer to the Form 8-K regarding this release furnished today to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
