Management Comments

"We are pleased to report another solid quarter with growth driven by higher demand across many diverse applications in Europe, North America and Japan. Increased laser welding adoption, primarily in electric vehicle manufacturing, drove record welding revenue for IPG this quarter," said Dr. Eugene Scherbakov, IPG Photonics' Chief Executive Officer. "As we execute on growth opportunities that diversify our revenue across geographies and applications, such as electric vehicle production, handheld welding and medical products, China's share of revenue decreased to 35% this quarter. Given increased geopolitical risks, we are reducing our reliance on manufacturing in Russia and have stopped new investments in the region while increasing manufacturing capacity in North America and Western Europe."

Financial Highlights

First quarter revenue of $370 million increased 7% year over year. Materials processing sales accounted for 92% of total revenue and increased 7% year over year with higher sales in welding, marking, systems, cleaning and 3D printing, partially offset by lower revenue in cutting and solar cell manufacturing applications. Sales into Other applications increased 9% year over year, driven by the strength in medical, partially offset by lower sales in advanced applications and telecom. Emerging growth products sales accounted for 36% of total revenue.

Revenue in high power continuous wave (CW) lasers declined 2% year over year due to softer demand in high power cutting applications in China that was partially offset by strong growth in welding in the region as well as growth in welding and cutting across most other major regions. Sales of medium power and pulsed lasers improved significantly compared with the prior year, primarily driven by emerging growth products. By region, sales increased 27% in Europe, 5% in North America, and 18% in Japan, and decreased 7% in China on a year-over-year basis.

Earnings per diluted share (EPS) of $1.31 increased by 4% year over year. The effective tax rate in the quarter was 25%. During the first quarter, IPG generated $16 million in cash from operations. Capital expenditures were $25 million and stock repurchases were $79 million in the quarter.

Business Outlook and Financial Guidance

“First quarter book-to-bill was greater than one and while bookings were at a record level driven by strong demand for electric vehicle battery manufacturing, handheld welding and medical applications, we received several orders that we expect to ship after the second quarter. Our strategy of diversifying revenue sources and geographical exposure is providing us with confidence in the long-term growth strategy for the Company, despite a challenging operating environment. We believe that fiber laser adoption continues across many applications and geographies. To support quicker adoption of our lasers, we are focusing on meeting customers' demands and working on providing solutions with our commitment to quality, innovative technology, reliability and global customer support," concluded Dr. Scherbakov.

For the second quarter of 2022, IPG expects revenue of $355 to $385 million. The Company expects the second quarter tax rate to be approximately 26%. IPG anticipates delivering earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.95 to $1.25.

As discussed in more detail in the "Safe Harbor" passage of this news release, actual results may differ from this guidance due to various factors including, but not limited to, trade policy changes and trade restrictions with Russia, the COVID-19 pandemic, product demand, order cancellations and delays, competition, tariffs, and general economic conditions. This guidance is based upon current market conditions and expectations, and is subject to the risks outlined in the Company's reports filed with the SEC, and assumes exchange rates relative to the U.S. Dollar of Euro 0.90, Russian Ruble 84, Japanese Yen 122 and Chinese Yuan 6.35, respectively.
