“We achieved a number of significant milestones in 2019, in support of our long-term growth initiatives,” continued Mr. Blonigan. “We booked a record $40M order in July in Photonics, which along with the IVAS program, drove Photonics backlog to new record levels, giving us multi-year visibility for continued strong growth and profitability for this business.

Photonics gross margin was 45.7% compared to 42.1% in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 43.1% in the third quarter of 2019. The improvement from the fourth quarter of 2018 and the third quarter of 2019 was primarily due to improved margins on research and development contracts.

R&D and SG&A expenses were $9.2 million, compared to $8.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and to $9.2 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Revenues were $108.9 million, including $73.7 million of TFE revenues and $35.2 million of Photonics revenues, of which $19.7 million was contract R&D revenues, compared to revenues of $95.1 million, which included $69.3 million of TFE revenues and $25.8 million of Photonics revenues, for 2018.

TFE gross margin was 37.2%, compared to 36.5% in 2018, while Photonics gross margin was 38.3%, compared to 28.6% in 2018. Consolidated gross margin was 37.5% compared to 34.4% in 2018.

Results for all periods presented include changes in fair value of contingent consideration obligations associated with the Solar Implant Technology (SIT) acquisition in 2010.

2

Results for the year ended December 29, 2018 include severance and other employee-related costs related to a restructuring program.

3

Results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 29, 2018 include the reversal of the valuation allowance recorded against the deferred tax assets of the Company’s Singapore operations. The Company concluded that, as of December 29, 2018 it is more likely than not that the Company will generate sufficient taxable income in Singapore to realize its deferred tax assets. This conclusion, and the resulting reversal of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance, was based upon consideration of a number of factors, including the Company's completion of seven consecutive quarters of profitability in Singapore and its forecast of future profitability of its Singapore operations.

4

The amount represents the estimated income tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments. The Company calculated the tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments by applying an applicable estimated jurisdictional tax rate to each specific non-GAAP item.
