A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most nearly comparable GAAP measure follows the consolidated statements of operations, balance sheets and statements of cash flows included in this release.
"While we achieved the bottom end of our revenue guidance in an increasingly difficult market environment, the mix of those revenues resulted in our net income slightly below our earnings guidance," stated Steve Schwartz, President & Chief Executive Officer of Brooks. "Additionally, our Life Science Systems revenue was temporarily affected in the third quarter by the timing of tender awards for major systems, notably in Europe. The planning for significant investment by research institutes in Sample Storage and Management Systems continues and we are confident in the longer term growth profile of this market-leading business."
Dr. Schwartz continued, "During the first nine months of this fiscal year we generated $48.7 million of adjusted EBITDA, and have made improvements within our business. We have also demonstrated market leadership as evidenced by the 61 Design-in-Wins within the technology business over this period. Despite negative macro-economic events we are well-positioned to generate higher margins in the coming quarters and continue market share gains in many areas of our business."
Martin Headley, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Brooks, noted "We have built a very strong balance sheet with cash and cash equivalents at the end of the quarter of $203.7 million and no debt. We continue to be active in working appropriate opportunities for exercising our capital structure."
Third Quarter of Fiscal 2012 Results
Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 were $140.4 million, compared to revenues of $139.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and $186.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, which included $42.3 million from the Contract Manufacturing business that was sold at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Revenues for the Brooks Product Solutions segment increased 4.1% on a sequential basis compared to the second fiscal quarter of 2012. Revenues for the Brooks Life Science Systems segment decreased 23.6% sequentially primarily due to fewer systems opportunities awarded during the quarter while revenues for the Brooks Global Services segment increased 1.4% sequentially on higher pump service revenues.
Order bookings for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased to $128.0 million, compared to order bookings in the fiscal second quarter of $155.3 million. The decrease in bookings was impacted by an overall decrease in semiconductor industry bookings and aforementioned reductions in bookings for Brooks Life Science Systems. The Company expects its bookings from Brooks Life Science Systems to increase in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 for fiscal 2013 delivery.
Gross profit margin was 32.9% for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, compared to gross profit margins of 34.7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and 30.6% for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The third quarter of fiscal 2012 improved 230 basis points compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2011 primarily due to revenue mix with higher Brooks Life Science Systems revenue and the divestiture of lower margin Contract Manufacturing segment business. On a sequential basis, gross margin was down 180 basis points primarily due to revenue mix in the Brooks Product Solutions segment as well as the Brooks Global Services segment. The Company expects an improvement in overall gross margin during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to fiscal third quarter of 2012.
Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization) for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $17.2 million, which compared to $20.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and $30.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
Net cash provided by operating activities for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $10.9 million. The Company ended the third quarter of fiscal 2012 with total cash and marketable securities of $203.7 million at June 30, 2012.
Nine Months ended June 30, 2012 Results
Revenues for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 were $400.0 million, compared to revenues of $557.2 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2011, which included $137.3 million from the Contract Manufacturing business that was sold at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
Quarterly Cash Dividend
The Company additionally announced that the Board of Directors had declared a dividend of $0.08 per share payable on September 28, 2012 to stockholders of record on September 7, 2012. Future dividend declarations, as well as the record and payment dates for such dividends, are subject to the final determination of the Company's Board of Directors.
Guidance for Fourth Fiscal Quarter of Fiscal 2012
The Company announced revenue and earnings guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Revenues are expected to decrease between 15 and 20%. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, excluding special charges are expected to range between $0.00 and $0.06. The Company did not provide GAAP earnings guidance given uncertainties surrounding special charges including charges associated with the termination of an existing defined benefit pension plan and potential tax benefits from reversing certain valuations allowance against deferred tax assets.

Notes on Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
The information in this press release is for: internal managerial purposes; when publicly providing guidance on future results; and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. These financial measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. Management believes these financial measures provide an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations, that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of our business. Management strongly encourages investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single measure.
The press release includes financial measures which exclude the effects of non-recurring income and special charges such as restructuring charges and acquisition related charges.
