Management Commentary

"Our second quarter results demonstrate continued progress on our path to profitability," said Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Revenue and gross margin each reached the highest points in company history, and we delivered the third consecutive quarter of record backlog. Order flow was robust, increasing 21% year-over-year and generating a book-to-bill ratio of greater than 1 to 1. Our cash cycle was particularly strong, with improved DSO and inventory turns, and reduced cash burn, and we continue to maintain a healthy cash balance.

"Demand in the U.S. is very healthy, especially in the oil and gas sector as well as in the Eastern region where our products are being used in energy efficiency applications. We received a number of large follow-on orders from key customers for high profile installations in New York City during the quarter. Ongoing momentum in North and South America and the Pacific Rim is offsetting some of the weakness in European markets. With these positive business indicators and our improving financial performance, we feel confident about our continued progress in the second half of Fiscal 2013."
