Management Comments

“IPG delivered another quarter of record revenue and net income,” said Dr. Valentin Gapontsev, IPG Photonics’ Chief Executive Officer. “Third-quarter revenues grew by more than 62% year over year, with continued strength from high power lasers for materials processing applications. Gross and operating margins were strong at 55% and 38%, respectively, and EPS improved to $0.66 compared with $0.28 in the third quarter of 2010. Net income and other adjustments attributable to non-controlling interest in our Russian subsidiary reduced EPS by $0.04 per share in Q3 2011 as compared to $0.00 in the third quarter of 2010.”

“High power laser sales were up 131% year over year, due primarily to continued strength from cutting and welding applications, especially from the auto industries in Germany and the U.S.,” said Dr. Gapontsev. “Medium power lasers were up 95% year over year as a result of growth in microelectronics and battery welding applications. Pulsed laser sales increased by 10% year over year as demand for marking and engraving applications in general manufacturing increased. Lasers used for materials processing applications, which grew 69% year over year in the third quarter, comprise nearly 90% of total revenues. Sales were up across all major geographies year over year, while China, Germany and Russia delivered the greatest increases.”

“We ended the quarter with $196.6 million in cash, an increase of $8.4 million in the third quarter of 2011,” said Dr. Gapontsev. “During the first nine months of 2011, IPG generated $56 million in cash from operations and invested $35 million in capital expenditures. Our capex spending thus far in 2011 is on target with our original goal of $50 million, which will be used to expand our manufacturing capacity and add to our network of application laboratories and sales facilities.”

Business Outlook and Financial Guidance

“During 2011, fiber lasers have become the laser solution of choice for many materials processing applications as OEM’s and end users have recognized their ability to increase productivity and reduce operating costs,” said Dr. Gapontsev. “We anticipate that our growth will continue to be led by our high power laser products, particularly for materials processing applications. As always, we are planning for the long term. Our strategy is to invest in R&D and capacity expansion to further solidify our technology superiority and our position as the leader in fiber lasers.”

“While IPG is not immune to global macro-economic conditions and there is some uncertainty in the global macro-economic environment, fiber lasers’ growing share of the laser market and the continued acceptance of our products and technology foretell exciting growth prospects for the long term,” concluded Dr. Gapontsev.

IPG Photonics expects revenue in the range of $122 million to $135 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company anticipates earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.60 to $0.71 based on 48,747,000 common shares, which includes 47,483,000 basic common shares outstanding and 1,264,000 potentially dilutive options at September 30, 2011.

As discussed in more detail below, actual results may differ from this guidance due to various factors including, but not limited to product demand, competition and general economic conditions. This guidance is subject to the risks outlined in the Company’s reports with the SEC, and assumes that exchange rates remain at present levels.
