Peter J. Burlage, Chief Executive Officer

Peter J. Burlage, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Overall, I am encouraged by our results this quarter as our markets and the global economy continue to strengthen. Our business segments, Process Products and Environmental Systems, performed largely as planned. We continue to be optimistic about growth in our Process Products segment as energy demand rises, and additional shale gas development and pipeline infrastructure projects move ahead. Quoting activity levels in our Environmental Systems segment remain mixed as they have been in recent quarters, though we remain confident in the longer-term growth opportunities in the clean energy sector. We experienced some gross margin pressure this third quarter due to competitive pricing and product mix as we cycle through our backlog. These pricing challenges will likely persist in the near term and we would expect gross margins going into fiscal year 2012 to be in the lower end of our historical annual range of 32-35%. 

"Our backlog for the third quarter of $93 million was down $6 million, or 6.1% quarter over quarter, however, it is up 9.4% year over year. We believe our bookings for the period ending April 2nd were significantly impacted by both the political unrest in Libya and Egypt, and from the nuclear crisis in Japan on the nuclear power industry. We are closely monitoring the ongoing unrest in these regions and their potential to adversely affect future results.

"As we look out over the next few years, we are optimistic about the long-term opportunities presented by our markets and pleased with how we are positioned to take advantage of them. Through our continued investments in local capabilities in fast growing global markets, development of new technology, and cost structure reductions, we have taken significant steps to position our company for the future. While business remains choppy and price competitive, energy demand forecasts in high growth markets are strong. Even as recent global events have increased scrutiny on additional nuclear power capacity, the underlying demand for increased energy infrastructure remains and provides confidence in the long-term outlook for large global projects. We will continue to place the highest value on customer service and satisfaction as we build upon our diverse global platform to drive revenue and earnings growth, and cash flow performance."

Preferred Stock Conversions

As of May 10, 2011, the holders of 20,840 shares of Preferred Stock elected to convert their Preferred Stock into 2,605,000 shares of the Company's common stock at the initial conversion price of $8.00 per share. This represents approximately 99% of the Preferred Stock, which has now been converted. In connection with these conversions, we paid the holders of Preferred Stock cash payments for accrued and unpaid dividends on the converted shares and are now no longer required to pay dividends on the converted shares of Preferred Stock. The Company is uncertain as to when or how many additional holders of Preferred Stock will exercise their right to convert some or all of their shares in the future.

STATEMENT REGARDING NON-GAAP RESULTS

PMFG, Inc. has provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures in order to provide the users of this financial information with a better understanding of the impact on our financial results resulting from the issuance of preferred stock and related fair value adjustment to the derivative liability in fiscal 2011 and 2010 and the loss on the extinguishment of debt related to unamortized debt issuance costs on our retired subordinated term debt, in fiscal 2010. Management believes that excluding these items from the Company's financial results provides investors with a clearer perspective of the current underlying operating performance of the Company, a clearer comparison between results in different periods and greater transparency regarding supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. These non-GAAP measures are not measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
