PITTSBURGH, Jan. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- II-VI Incorporated (Nasdaq:IIVI)
today reported results for its second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

During the second quarter, the Company completed three acquisitions:

November 1, 2012  M Cubed Technologies, Inc. (M Cubed)
December 3, 2012  The thin-film filter business and interleaver product line
                  of Oclaro, Inc. (the Oclaro Business and Product Line)
December 21, 2012 LightWorks Optics, Inc. (LightWorks)

M Cubed joined the Advanced Products Group segment, the Oclaro Business and
Product Line became a part of Photop Technologies, Inc. in the Near-Infrared
Optics segment, and LightWorks joined the Military & Materials segment.

Bookings for the second quarter increased 9% to $127,134,000 compared to
$116,883,000 in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Bookings for the six
months ended December 31, 2012 decreased 2% to $241,527,000 compared to
$247,130,000 for the same period last fiscal year. Bookings are defined as
customer orders received that are expected to be converted into revenues
during the next 12 months.

Revenues for the second quarter decreased 1% to $125,889,000 from $126,757,000
in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Revenues for the six months ended
December 31, 2012 decreased 3% to $258,181,000 from $265,130,000 for the same
period last fiscal year.

Net earnings attributable to II-VI Incorporated for the quarter were
$12,200,000, or $0.19 per share-diluted, compared to net earnings of
$13,287,000, or $0.21 per share-diluted, in the second quarter of last fiscal
year. For the six months ended December 31, 2012, net earnings attributable to
II-VI Incorporated were $24,918,000, or $0.39 per share-diluted, compared to
net earnings of $31,866,000, or $0.50 per share-diluted, for the same period
last fiscal year.

Results include the following:

  *Transaction expenses related to our three recent acquisitions of $0.8
    million, or $0.01 per share-diluted, for the three months ended December
    31, 2012 and $1.1 million or $0.02 per share-diluted, for the six months
    ended December 31, 2012. These expenses are included in selling, general
    and administrative expenses in the attached condensed consolidated
    statements of earnings.
    
  *After-tax income of $3.7 million, or $0.06 per share-diluted, from a
    settlement with a former contract manufacturer for damages incurred in the
    October 2011 flooding in Thailand for the three and six months ended
    December 31, 2012.The majority of this settlement amount is included in
    other expense (income), net in the attached condensed consolidated
    statements of earnings.
    
  *Write-downs of tellurium and selenium inventory of $0.8 million, or $0.01
    per share-diluted, and $1.3 million, or $0.02 per share-diluted, for the
    three and six months ended December 31, 2012, respectively.These amounts
    compare to write-downs of tellurium and selenium inventory of $2.2
    million, or $0.03 per share-diluted, and $2.5 million, or $0.04 per
    share-diluted, for the three and six months ended December 31, 2011,
    respectively.These write-downs, taken by Pacific Rare Specialty Metals &
    Chemicals, Inc. (PRM), a business in the Military & Materials segment,
    were necessitated by declines in global raw material index pricing.This
    expense is included in cost of goods sold in the attached condensed
    consolidated statements of earnings.

Francis J. Kramer, president and chief executive officer said, "Revenues from
our recent acquisitions during the quarter helped to offset demand weakness
that we experienced during the last few weeks of the quarter.In the Military
& Materials segment, PRM continues to adjust to lower index pricing and
reduced demand for tellurium and selenium while experiencing start-up
challenges with its new product line.In the Advanced Products Group, the
addition of M Cubed bolstered revenues but those gains were offset by
acquisition costs and lower demand for commercial products at Marlow
Industries.Our tax rate increased due to the effect of changes in the mix of
earnings sourced to higher tax jurisdictions and specific items that were
required to be reported in the current quarter."

Kramer continued, "During the quarter we utilized our cash reserves and
borrowing capacity to complete the acquisitions of three businesses whose
technologies and expertise we are integrating into the II-VI family of
companies.With these acquisitions we acquired over $36 million in
backlog.Our financial and business fundamentals remain solid.Cash flow from
operations year to date has increased 42% from the year-ago period." 

As discussed below under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," the Company is
presenting non-GAAP financial measures in this release.Investors should
consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or
superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").Please refer to the
attached reconciliation between GAAP and adjusted financial measures prepared
in accordance with GAAP and the non-GAAP adjusted financial measures.

                             Segment Information

The following segment information includes segment earnings (defined as
earnings before income taxes, interest expense and other expense or income,
net).Management believes segment earnings are a useful performance measure
because they reflect the results of segment performance over which management
has direct control. Effective July 1, 2012, the Company changed its segment
reporting structure to include VLOC in the Company's Military & Materials
segment.VLOC was previously reported in the Company's Near-Infrared Optics
segment.All segment information presented in this earnings release has been
retrospectively adjusted to include VLOC in the Military & Materials segment.

                      Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has disclosed adjusted financial measurements in this press
release that present financial information that is not in accordance with
GAAP.These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although
the Company's management does use these measurements as an aid in monitoring
the Company's on-going financial performance.The adjusted Non-GAAP net
earnings attributable to II-VI Incorporated and adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per
share measure the earnings of the Company excluding unusual items that are
considered by management to be outside of the normal on-going operations of
the Company. There are limitations with the use of non-GAAP financial
measures, including that non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may
be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to,
similarly titled measures used by other companies, that there can be no
assurance that excluded items in the non-GAAP financial measures will not
occur in the future and that there could be cash costs associated with items
excluded in the non-GAAP financial measures.The Company compensates for these
limitations by using these Non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP
financial measures and by providing the reconciliations of the Non-GAAP
financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors
should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for,
or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with
GAAP.
