Commenting on the news, Danny Haran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cimatron, noted, "Once again, we are very pleased to report our best ever third quarter, with record revenues, operating profit and net profit. The solid year-over-year revenue growth in the quarter came from both our product lines and from both new license revenues as well as maintenance revenues, resulting in 27% year-over-year increase in operating profit due to the strong operating leverage in our business model."

"Our product rollout for 2014 is progressing as planned. CimatronE version 12 was released in Q3 to growing acclaim for its many new capabilities. The next milestone is the GibbsCAM 2015 release towards the end of the year. This version incorporates the revolutionary UKM (Universal Kinematic Machine) technology, enabling users to program and simulate virtually any machine with extreme accuracy. UKM was demonstrated at IMTS 2014, and received extremely positive feedback. With strong and accelerating financial performance, combined with promising version releases for our two product lines, we remain optimistic about the future of the company," concluded Mr. Haran.

Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statements of Income included herein. Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to include recognition of deferred revenues of acquired companies and to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock based compensation and deferred income tax, as well as certain business combination and other accounting entries. The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. We believe that these non-GAAP measures help investors to understand our current and future operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
