Management Comments

“We began 2012 with a strong quarter,” said Dr. Valentin Gapontsev, IPG Photonics’ Chief Executive Officer. “Revenues increased 23% from the prior year and net income grew by 30%. We continued to perform well across most geographic regions, while sales of high-power lasers for materials processing applications and other applications drove much of the revenue growth.”

“Materials processing sales accounted for approximately 84% of total revenues, resulting in a 19% increase year over year as we continued to penetrate the cutting, welding and marking and engraving applications with IPG’s high-power fiber lasers,” said Dr. Gapontsev. “Other applications (telecom, advanced and medical) were up 48% year over year, primarily driven by advanced applications, which benefited from the sale of multiple high-power lasers. High-power laser sales increased 42% year over year, with strength coming from North America, Europe and China, primarily for the automotive manufacturing industry.”

“We ended the quarter with a strong balance sheet with $377.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and $18.5 million in short-term investments following our successful follow-on offering in March 2012,” said Dr. Gapontsev. “During the first quarter, IPG generated $27.0 million in cash from operations and invested $13.8 million in capital expenditures. Our capex target range for 2012 is $55 to $60 million as we expand our manufacturing capacity and add to our network of application laboratories and sales facilities.”

Business Outlook and Financial Guidance

“Order flow continues to be robust,” said Dr. Gapontsev. “In North America, manufacturers are increasingly using fiber lasers in a broader range of industrial materials processing applications, which resulted in strong year-on-year sales growth for the region. Europe and China are performing better than expected considering the macro-economic factors in each region. Operationally, we are focused on identifying new opportunities for expansion, including developing specialized laser systems to meet customers’ needs and penetrating more deeply into the micro processing market with our QCW lasers. The range of applications for our fiber lasers continues to expand and we plan to capitalize on that growth with our superior technology, reliable and cost-effective products, and volume manufacturing capabilities.”

IPG Photonics expects revenue in the range of $128 million to $138 million for the second quarter of 2012. The Company anticipates earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.60 to $0.70 based on 52,103,000 diluted common shares, which includes 50,967,000 basic common shares outstanding and 1,136,000 potentially dilutive options at March 31, 2012.

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.
