Givat Shmuel, Israel, – May 26, 2009– Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2009.
The following provides details on Cimatron's GAAP and non-GAAP figures in the first quarter of 2009:
There is no difference between GAAP and non-GAAP revenues in 2009. Revenues on a non-GAAP basis in 2008 excluded the effect of business combination accounting rules on the acquired deferred maintenance revenue balance of Gibbs System Inc. that was merged into Cimatron in early 2008. Expenses on a non-GAAP basis in 2009 and 2008 exclude the non-cash amortization of acquired intangible assets of Microsystem and Gibbs, and the effect of deferred taxes.
Revenues for the first quarter of 2009 were $7.8 million, compared to $10.0 million recorded in the first quarter of 2008.
Gross Income for the first quarter of 2009 was $6.3 million as compared to $8.0 million in the same period in 2008. Gross margin in the first quarter of 2009 was 81% of revenues, compared to gross margin of 80% in the first quarter of 2008.
Operating loss in the first quarter of 2009 was $(512) thousand, compared to an operating loss of $(218) thousand in the first quarter of 2008.
Net Loss for the first quarter of 2009 was $(563) thousand, or $(0.06) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $(298) thousand, or $(0.03) per diluted share recorded in the same quarter of 2008.
Revenues on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2009 were $7.8 million, compared to $10.3 million recorded in the first quarter of 2008.
Gross Income on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2009 was $6.5 million as compared to $8.4 million in the same period in 2008. Gross margin in the first quarter of 2009 was 83% of revenues, compared to 82% in the first quarter of 2008.
Operating Loss on a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of 2009 was $(265) thousand, compared to an operating income of $277 thousand in the first quarter of 2008.
Net loss on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2009 was $(407) thousand, or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to a net income of $235 thousand, or $0.02 per diluted share recorded in the same quarter of 2008.
Commenting on the results, Danny Haran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cimatron, said, "As our products address markets that have been affected by the current economic downturn, the first quarter of 2009 was very challenging, in line with our expectations. We are witnessing significant softness in all our markets, especially when it comes to closing new deals. Prospects and customers tend to delay purchasing decisions until they feel more confident with their own business. However, maintenance revenues continue to hold up well, and we are pleased that despite a significant decrease in revenues as compared to the parallel quarter in 2008, the effect on the bottom line is less significant, reflecting the steps we took to control expenses and preserve cash. As we cannot predict when the market will turn around, we will continue to closely monitor our expenses level. At the same time, we continue to invest in product development and marketing, activities we believe are essential for gaining market share, especially during difficult economic periods." concluded Mr. Haran.
Cimatron's management will host a conference call today, May 26th, 2009 at 9:00 EST, 16:00 Israel time. On the call, management will review and discuss the results, and will answer questions by investors.

Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statements of Operation (Non-GAAP basis). 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 and deferred income tax, as well as certain business combination accounting entries. The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-GAAP charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside 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, especially as our two most recent acquisitions have resulted in amortization and non-cash items that have had a material impact on our GAAP profits. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
