Allied Motion Updates Summary Pro Forma Information From the Globe Motors, Inc. Acquisition

Allied Motion Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: AMOT) On October 18, 2013, Allied Motion completed the acquisition of Globe Motors and filed a Form 8-K announcing the acquisition within four business days of the completion of the acquisition, as required by the SEC. On November 12, 2013 Allied Motion issued a Press Release to disclose unaudited pro forma financial information with respect to Allied Motion’s acquisition of Globe Motors, Inc. from Safran USA, Inc. The pro forma financial information was released at that time to provide the readers with an overview of the past performance of the combined entity for the year ended December 31, 2012 and the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Also within the Press Release, the readers were reminded that the unaudited pro forma financial information reported at that time was preliminary and subject to change pending the completion of the audits by Allied Motion’s outside audit firm of the Globe Motors results for both periods, as required by SEC regulations.

On January 3, 2014, Allied Motion filed an amendment to the Form 8-K to include audited financial statements for Globe Motors for the year ended December 31, 2012 and the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, as well as certain unaudited pro forma Allied Motion and Globe Motors combined consolidated financial statements. The pro forma financials were based on Globe Motors’ audited report for each period presented while Allied Motion’s results for the year ended December 31, 2012 were audited and its interim results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were unaudited as filed with Allied’s most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q. As a result of the audit of Globe Motors, Allied Motion is updating the previously disclosed summary pro forma information to (i) revise the revenue of Globe Motors (ii) revise certain expenses, including interest expense, depreciation expense and provision for income tax for Globe Motors (iii) correct the pro forma adjustment for certain litigation-related expenses of Globe Motors and (iv) revise corporate allocations.

“The completion of the outside audit of Globe Motors and the reporting of the pro forma financial results of the combined entity within the amended Form 8-K, confirms that the Globe Motors acquisition is accretive to Allied Motion,” commented Dick Warzala, CEO and President of Allied Motion. “At this point we can report that the integration process is moving forward as planned and we continue to be excited about the opportunity to leverage the combined resources of the two organizations to facilitate the execution of our Strategy and enhance the continued long term growth and development of our Company.”

Set forth below are certain pro forma financial metrics that assume that the acquisition of Globe Motors took place on January 1, 2012, the beginning of the earliest period presented. The unaudited pro forma information may not be indicative of the results that actually would have occurred if the acquisition had occurred on the dates indicated or which may be obtained in the future. The transaction will be accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting which requires, among other things, the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, to be recognized at their fair values as of the acquisition date and the allocation of the purchase price used to prepare the unaudited pro forma information is subject to change. The Globe assets and liabilities have been measured at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. Differences between these estimates of fair value and the final acquisition accounting may occur, and those differences could have a material impact on the unaudited pro forma financial information presented below. In addition, the acquisition of Globe Motors is subject to a post-closing purchase price adjustment to reflect, among other things, the working capital and cash on hand of Globe Motors at the time of closing. The post-closing purchase price adjustment, if any, is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2014 and is not reflected in the pro forma information set forth below.

The charts below summarize the unaudited pro forma calculation of Revenue, Net Income, Net Income per share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA giving effect to the acquisition as compared to the historical results for Allied Motion for the 9 months ended September 30, 2013 and year ended December 31, 2012 is as follows (in thousands):

Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are provided for information purposes only and are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. Management believes the presentation of these financial measures reflecting non-GAAP adjustments provides important supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of the Company as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results; in particular, those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance, and that are not a helpful measure of the performance of our underlying business particularly in light of their unpredictable nature. This non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for net income determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. In addition, this supplemental presentation should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to net income determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company believes EBITDA is often a useful measure of a Company’s operating performance and is a significant basis used by the Company’s management to measure the operating performance of the Company’s business because EBITDA excludes charges for depreciation, amortization and interest expense that have resulted from our debt financings, as well as our provision for income tax expense. EBITDA is frequently used as one of the bases for comparing businesses in the Company’s industry.

The Company also believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides helpful information about the operating performance of its business. Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock compensation expense, as well as certain income or expenses which are not indicative of the ongoing performance of the Company. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure for determining operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

Comparing the unaudited pro forma results from November 12, 2013 Press Release to the January 3, 2014 Press Release for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA as shown on the January 3, 2014 Press Release was primarily the result of a correction to the amount of accrued legal expenses added back on the unaudited pro forma financials used in the November 12, 2013 Press Release. The legal expenses were one-time expenses for potential litigation that was not assumed by Allied Motion in the purchase transaction.
