"Our fiscal second quarter results illustrate the progress our team is making in executing our plan.  The company's gross system order volume increased as expected and supports our belief that we will see gross orders in the second half of the fiscal year grow at a rate faster than the overall market," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer of Accuray.  "Additionally, the trends in the business enable us to reaffirm our full fiscal year financial guidance despite foreign currency headwinds that have materially reduced our overall year-to-date revenue results.  The Accuray team remains focused on generating profitable revenue growth, expanding gross profit margins and ultimately driving sustained cash flow and profitability for all of our stakeholders."

Financial Highlights Gross product orders totaled $72.3 million for the second fiscal quarter, a decrease of $8.0 million or 10% from the second quarter of the prior fiscal year.  On a constant currency basis, gross product orders for the current year fiscal quarter would have totaled $74.4 million.  Ending product backlog was $358 million or approximately 1% lower than backlog at the end of the prior fiscal year second quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures The company has supplemented its GAAP net loss with a non-GAAP measure of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation ("adjusted EBITDA").  Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the company and facilitates a more meaningful comparison of results for current periods with previous operating results.  A reconciliation of GAAP net loss (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is provided in the schedule below.

There are limitations in using this non-GAAP financial measure because it is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.  This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures.  Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measure provided in the schedule below.
