The company noted the following regarding the first quarter results: oNet sales of $132.6 million; oNet income attributable to Newport Corporation of $2.7 million, or $0.07 per share, when measured according to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP); oNon-GAAP net income of $6.2 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, excluding the amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related, restructuring and severance costs, and the tax impact of the excluded amounts; and oCash generated from operations of $7.5 million, and a reduction in debt of $12.1 million. Commenting on the results, Robert J. Phillippy, Newport's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "While conditions in the primary markets we serve were generally weak in the first quarter, we did see sequential growth in orders from customers in our life and health sciences, microelectronics, and industrial markets, which may reflect the early signs of improving conditions. We continue to implement our strategic plan, and have made progress on several of our long-term growth initiatives. We remain confident that these initiatives, together with effective execution, will position Newport to achieve significant growth in sales and profitability when macro-conditions improve." Sales and Orders Newport's sales and orders by end market were as follows: (In thousands, except Three Months Ended Percentage Percentage percentages, unaudited) Change vs. Change vs. March December March Prior Prior Year 30, 29, 31, 2013 2012 ¹ 2012 ¹ Quarter Period Sales by End Market Scientific $ $ $ research -7.3% -14.2% 30,893 33,319 36,024 Microelectronics 27,730 28,632 36,154 -3.2% -23.3% Life and health sciences 31,177 32,283 37,116 -3.4% -16.0% Defense and 15,411 18,312 17,377 -15.8% -11.3% security Industrial manufacturing 27,396 29,097 30,496 -5.8% -10.2% and other $ $ $ Total -6.4% -15.6% 132,607 141,643 157,167 Orders by End Market Scientific $ $ $ research -8.3% 7.6% 31,489 34,321 29,278 Microelectronics 28,186 26,153 42,168 7.8% -33.2% Life and health sciences 30,474 26,975 63,731 13.0% -52.2% Defense and 14,930 18,449 20,114 -19.1% -25.8% security Industrial manufacturing 28,506 27,974 30,813 1.9% -7.5% and other $ $ $ Total -0.2% -28.2% 133,585 133,872 186,104 Notes: ^1 Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. On a sequential basis, sales declined 6.4% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012. New orders in the first quarter of 2013 were approximately equal to the fourth quarter 2012 level. The company noted that first quarter orders from customers in its life and health sciences, microelectronics, and industrial and other end markets all increased sequentially compared with the fourth quarter of 2012, and that the sequentially lower first quarter sales to and orders from customers in the scientific research and defense and security end markets were consistent with the continued uncertainty in government funding levels and the normal seasonal patterns in the research market. Operating Income and Net Income Newport reported operating income for the first quarter of 2013 of $4.4 million when calculated in accordance with GAAP. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and acquisition-related, restructuring and severance costs, the company's operating income for the first quarter of 2013 was $11.2 million, or 8.4% of net sales. The company has provided a reconciliation of its gross profit, operating income, net income and net income per diluted share calculated in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis following the statements of income and comprehensive income included in this release. Management believes that the supplemental presentation of non-GAAP financial information provides insight into the company's core business results, as well as a more meaningful comparison of its financial results between periods. Cash, Cash Equivalents and Marketable Securities In the first quarter of 2013, Newport generated $7.5 million in cash from operations, and reduced its total indebtedness by $12.1 million. As of March 30, 2013, the company had $171.6 million in total indebtedness and $96.2 million in cash, restricted cash and marketable securities. Financial Outlook Commenting on Newport's outlook, Mr. Phillippy said, "Based on input from our customers, we expect conditions in several end markets to improve during the course of 2013, resulting in increased sales in the second half of the year. In the second quarter of 2013, we expect sales to be slightly higher than the first quarter level, based on our current backlog and the anticipated market improvement. As a result, we also expect slight sequential increases in our non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013. In parallel, our long-term growth initiatives continue to gain momentum, and we are confident that these will enable us to accelerate our growth rate in future years.

SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT This news release contains forward-looking statements, including without limitation statements regarding the company's expectation that the sequential increases in sales and orders in certain of its end markets may indicate the early signs of improving conditions in those markets; its expectation of significant growth in sales and profitability when macro-conditions improve resulting from its focus on its long-term growth initiatives and its effective execution, its expectation of improved market conditions during the course of 2013 and increased sales in the second half of 2013, the company's expectation of slight sequential increases in sales, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share levels in the second quarter of 2013, and its expectation that the company's long-term growth initiatives will accelerate its growth rate in future years. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as "may," "will," "expect," "believe," "anticipate," "intend," "could," "estimate" or "continue" or the negative or other variations thereof or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. Assumptions relating to the foregoing involve judgments and risks with respect to, among other things, Newport's ability to achieve expected benefits from the integration of acquired businesses and its other cost savings initiatives; the strength of business conditions in the industries Newport serves, particularly the semiconductor and defense and security industries; Newport's ability to successfully penetrate and increase sales to its targeted end markets; the levels of private and governmental research funding worldwide; potential order cancellations and push-outs; future economic, competitive and market conditions, including those in Europe and Asia and those related to its strategic markets; whether its products will continue to achieve customer acceptance; and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond the control of Newport. Certain of these judgments and risks are discussed in more detail in Newport's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although Newport believes that the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any of the assumptions could prove inaccurate and, therefore, there can be no assurance that the results contemplated in forward-looking statements will be realized. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking information included herein, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation by Newport or any other person that Newport's objectives or plans will be achieved. Newport undertakes no obligation to revise the forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
