Allied Motion Reports Record Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2014

Allied Motion Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:AMOT) today announced net income increased 229% to $2,693,000 or $0.29 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to $819,000 or $0.09 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Revenues for the quarter increased 145% to $62,069,000 compared to $25,352,000 last year with sales to U.S. customers up 191% and foreign sales up 91%. Cash at June 30, 2014 increased to $10,988,000 compared to $10,171,000 at December 31, 2013.

Bookings for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were $63.5 million compared to $23.5 million for the first quarter of 2013. Backlog as of June 30, 2014 was $80.8 million compared to $26.9 million as of June 30, 2013, a 201% increase over the prior year.

“We are very pleased with the record results for the second quarter 2014 as they continue to validate our previous comments that we expect our revenues for 2014 to more than double relative to Allied’s 2013 pre-acquisition revenues and for the Globe acquisition to be accretive to earnings,” commented Dick Warzala, Chairman and CEO of Allied Motion. “When comparing the pro forma results of Allied and Globe for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to the actual results of Allied and Globe for the same period of 2014, our revenues increased from a pro forma of $104.1M in 2013 to $122.5M in 2014 and our earnings per share increased from a pro forma of $0.43/share in 2013 to $0.53/share in 2014. Also, on a year to date basis, we experienced growth in our served markets of Medical, Vehicle and Aerospace and Defense, while our Industrial and Electronics markets were flat. The Allied/Globe integration process, in which we have focused primarily on leveraging growth opportunities for the combined entity, is proceeding well. In September of 2014, we will take the process to the next level when we update our long term strategy and establish the goals and objectives for our company for the next three to five years. While we consider 2014 to be a transformative year for Allied Motion, our long term success will be further enhanced by leveraging the capabilities of both companies to design innovative “Motion Solutions That Change the Game” and meet the current and emerging needs of our customers in our served market segments.”

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company achieved net income of $4,841,000 or $.53 per diluted share compared to net income of $1,779,000 or $.20 per diluted share for the same six months last year. Revenues increased 143% to $122,504,000 compared to $50,495,000 last year with sales to U.S. customers up 195% and foreign sales up 84%. Of the total 143% increase in sales, 142% is due to an increase in sales volume, and 1% was due to the dollar weakening against the Euro.

Bookings for the first six months this year were $127.9 million compared to $44.4 million for the same six months last year or an increase of 188%.
