GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, November 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated
CAD/CAM software solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries,
today announced financial results for the third quarter and first nine months
of 2012. 

Highlights of Cimatron's results for these periods include the following:

  o3% year-over-year revenue increase on a constant currency basis in Q3 2012
  o27% year-over-year non-GAAP operating profit increase in the first nine
    months of 2012
  o$5.1M positive cash flow from operating activitiesin the
    firstninemonths of 2012,excludingaone-time payment of $2.5M to
    theOffice of Chief Scientist in the Israeli Ministry of Industry, Trade
    and Labor (OCS)

Concurrently with the announcement of its results, Cimatron today also
declared a cash dividend of NIS 0.41 (approximately US$0.105) per share on
outstanding ordinary shares, representing a total dividend payment of
approximately $1.0 million. The dividend is payable on December 17, 2012 to
shareholders of record at the close of business on November 28, 2012.
Commenting on the results, Danny Haran, President and Chief Executive Officer
of Cimatron, noted "Revenue in the third quarter of 2012 increased by 3%
compared to the third quarter of 2011 on a constant currency basis (down 2% in
nominal values), with the highest growth coming from North America, and a
healthy growth in Europe, mainly in Germany and Italy. Typically, the third
quarter of each calendar year is our weakest of the year, and the third
quarter of 2012 was no exception. Yet, we are pleased with our continued
healthy operating profit margins and cash flows. Cash flow from operating
activities in the first nine months of 2012 was $5.1M (excluding the $2.5M
one-time payment to the OCS that we announced in August this year). Our
confidence in continued profitability and positive cash flows going forward
allows us to announce yet another dividend distribution of approximately $1M
payable on December 17, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of
business on November 28, 2012." concluded Mr. Haran.

The following provides details on Cimatron's GAAP and non-GAAP results for the
third quarter and first nine months of 2012:

GAAP:

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $9.5 million, compared to $9.6
million recorded in the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months of
2012, revenues were $30.0 million, compared to $28.5 million in the same
period of 2011. 

GrossProfit for the third quarter of 2012 was $8.2 million, as compared to
$8.3 million in the same period in 2011. Gross margin in the third quarter of
2012 was 87% of revenues, the same as in the third quarter of 2011. For the
first nine months of 2012, gross profit was $26.4 million, compared to $24.6
million in the same period of 2011. Gross margin for the nine months ended
September 30^th, 2012 was 88% compared to a gross margin of 86% for the first
nine months of 2011. The higher gross margin in the first nine months of 2012
as compared to the parallel period in 2011 mainly reflects the agreement with
the OCS that was announced in August 2012.

Operating profit in the third quarter of 2012 was $0.7 million, the same as in
the third quarter of 2011. In the first nine months of 2012, Cimatron recorded
an operating profit of $3.4 million, compared to an operating profit of $2.2
million in the first nine months of 2011. 

Net Profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.5 million, or $0.06 per
diluted share, compared to a net profit of $0.0 million, or $0.00 per diluted
share, recorded in the same quarter of 2011. In the first nine months of
2012, net profit was $2.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to a
net profit of $1.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the first nine
months of 2011. 

Non-GAAP:

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $9.5 million, compared to $9.6
million recorded in the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months of
2012, revenues were $30.0 million, compared to $28.5 million in the same
period of 2011. 

GrossProfit for the third quarter of 2012 was $8.4 million, as compared to
$8.5 million in the same period in 2011. Gross margin in the third quarter of
2012 was 89% of revenues, compared to 88% of revenues in the third quarter of
2011. In the first nine months of 2012, gross profit was $26.4 million,
compared to $25.0 million in the first nine months of 2011. Gross margin for
the nine months ended September 30^th, 2012 was 88%, the same as in the first
nine months of 2011.

Operating Profit in the third quarter of 2012 was $1.0 million, the same as in
the third quarter of 2011. In the first nine months of 2012, Cimatron recorded
an operating profit of $3.8 million, compared to an operating profit of $3.0
million in the first nine months of 2011. 

Net profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.7 million, or $0.07 per
diluted share, compared to a net profit of $0.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted
share, recorded in the same quarter of 2011. In the first nine months of 2012,
net profit was $2.7 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to a net
profit of $2.9 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, in the first nine months
of 2011.

The contrast between non-GAAP operating profit (which rose in the first nine
months of 2012 compared to the same period of 2011) and non-GAAP net profit
(which slightly declined in the first nine months of 2012 compared to the
corresponding period of 2011) was mainly attributable to an increase in income
tax expense. Income tax expense constituted 26% of income before taxes in the
first nine months of 2012, causing a more significant reduction in non-GAAP
net profit, whereas it constituted only 3% of income before taxes in the first
nine months of 2011. The main reason for the higher effective tax rate in 2012
is the Company's having completed the use of its remaining U.S. tax loss
carry-forwards towards the end of 2011.

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, especially as our two
most recent acquisitions have resulted in amortization and non-cash items that
have had a material impact on our GAAP results. These non-GAAP financial
measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by
other companies.
