With this expansion complete, we are well positioned to support our customers and their capital projects in the coming years.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, the Company believes by excluding these items, these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in comparing the historical results to current results and measuring operating earnings trends. The Company also believes the disclosure of non-GAAP net income will help investors meaningfully evaluate and compare its cash flow generating capacity from quarter to quarter and year to year. The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them from GAAP financial measures, are outlined below: oCanadian project claim settlement, net of tax – In the fourth quarter, a project claim recovery was received on a large industrial project at Powell Canada. This project experienced significant delays and cost overruns in fiscal 2012. oGain on settlement, net of tax – In the second quarter, we settled a lawsuit filed against the previous owners of Powell Canada. oRestructuring and relocation expenses, net of tax – Significant expenses were incurred related to relocation efforts in connection with the construction of two new manufacturing facilities in fiscal 2013. We also incurred expenses related to the restructuring of our operations in the United Kingdom. oRelease of Canadian tax valuation allowance - In the fourth quarter, we released a tax valuation allowance recorded as an offset to prior years' Canadian pre-tax losses because we believe it is more likely than not that market conditions and our operating results going forward will allow us to realize the deferred tax assets associated with prior year losses in Canada. Due to the nature of these items, the Company does not believe that these items reflect its ongoing operations. SOURCE Powell Industries, Inc. Website: http://www.powellind.com
