(NASDAQ: ARCW; the "Company" or "ARC") today reported second quarter fiscal 2014 results, including record Net Revenue of $19.9 million, record Gross Profit of $6.3 million, record Adjusted EBITDA of $3.7 million, and Net Income of $1.5 million, an increase of 91.3% over the comparable prior year period. ARC also reported Adjusted Earnings Per Share ("Adjusted EPS") of $0.32 for the second quarter fiscal 2014, compared to $0.14 in the prior year period. The second quarter results are driven by robust performance across our manufacturing operations and underlying strength in numerous client industries, including medical, automotive, aerospace, and defense. Mr. Jason Young, Chairman and CEO, said, "We are pleased to report strong quarterly results that reflect sustained growth in revenue and operating margins. At the same time, we continue to materially pay down our debt utilizing the strong free cash flow generated from our businesses. This debt reduction has significantly increased our capacity to add EBITDA through acquisitions, while maintaining our conservative capital structure." He further added, "We are also quite excited about the progress we have made with our 3D printing and imaging efforts, as well as our newly launched online quoting system at 3DMT, all of which dovetail with our existing business quite well." Company-Wide Operating Results Net revenue for the fiscal year 2014 second quarter increased 14.6% to $19.9 million, compared to $17.4 million in the prior year period, due to the strong demand in the high growth markets we serve. The second quarter also showed an improvement in Gross Profit Margin, increasing to 31.8% from 24.7% during the comparable prior year period. The increase is attributed to a combination of top line sales growth, lean manufacturing initiatives, continued realization of acquisition synergies, and improved operational efficiencies through best practices. ARC reported Adjusted EPS of $0.32 for the second quarter, an increase of 127.4% from $0.14 the prior year quarter.
