SECOND FISCAL QUARTER DETAILS

For the second quarter of fiscal 2020, Coherent announced net sales of $293.1 million and net loss, on a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, of $418.9 million, or $17.39 per diluted share. The net loss includes $424.3 million, net of tax, in non-cash goodwill and other impairment charges, primarily related to the impairment of all goodwill and certain long-lived assets in our Industrial Lasers & Systems segment.

These results compare to net sales of $372.9 million and net income of $20.8 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 and net sales of $320.8 million and net income of $5.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was $14.8 million, or $0.61 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 was $39.2 million, or $1.61 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $20.7 million, or $0.86 per diluted share.  Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended April 4, 2020, December 28, 2019 and March 30, 2019 and six months ended April 4, 2020 and March 30, 2019 appear in the financial statements portion of this release under the heading "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP net income (loss)."

Effective September 29, 2019, Coherent adopted ASC 842 - Lease Accounting and applied the new guidance to all leases existing as of the date of adoption. Coherent reported results for the first and second quarters of fiscal 2020 that reflect the application of ASC 842, while prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with its historical lease accounting.

"During these unprecedented times, Coherent is demonstrating enduring stability," said Andy Mattes, Coherent President and CEO. "We have a solid financial foundation and our product portfolio positions us well for opportunities across numerous long-term resilient markets, including flat panel display, semiconductor, defense and medical instrumentation. Even with a challenging macroeconomic environment we were able to deliver and improve on an already strong balance sheet with an increase in our cash balance by approximately 20 million dollars from the December quarter. Cash preservation will continue to be management's focus, while simultaneously driving smart investments in our future products and technologies.  We enter the second half of the fiscal year with confidence in our long-term business outlook and with a commitment to ensuring the safety of our employees, serving our customers, and supporting the communities we are part of."

CONFERENCE CALL REMINDER

Coherent will host a conference call today to discuss its financial results at 1:30 P.M. Pacific (4:30 P.M. Eastern).
