(1) As of the beginning of fiscal year 2019, the Company adopted the new accounting standard on Revenue from Contracts with Customers on a modified retrospective basis. The impact of the adoption was not material to the results of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019, the adoption increased Net Sales $8.7 million, increased Net Income $0.8 million, and Diluted EPS increased $0.03. The prior periods were not restated.
(2) Prior period amounts have been restated to reflect the retrospective adoption of new accounting guidance on improving the presentation of net periodic pension cost and net periodic postretirement benefit cost.
(3) A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is included below.
Donald D. Charron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Fiscal year 2019 was another record-breaking year for our company as we reached a new high in net sales and achieved double-digit sales growth for the fourth time in the past five years.”
Mr. Charron continued, “We are extremely pleased with the success that we have had with the organic growth of our business, even while experiencing softness in select markets. We recognize that there is still work to do to achieve our profitability goals. As new programs ramp up to projected run rates and we drive improvements in the GES operations, we expect to realize the leverage from our sales growth. With the dedication and commitment of our associates around the world, we will continue our relentless pursuit to create greater value for our Share Owners.”
Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2019 Overview:
Consolidated net sales set a new quarterly record while increasing 15% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018. The GES acquisition added 2% to net sales during the quarter while unfavorable foreign currency movements decreased net sales by approximately 3% compared to the prior year fourth quarter.
Operating activities provided cash of $12.2 million during the quarter, which compares to cash provided by operating activities of $19.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018.
Cash conversion days (“CCD”) for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were 77 days, up from 63 days in the same quarter last year largely related to an increase in raw material inventories to maintain appropriate buffer stock levels in the tight supply environment. CCD is calculated as the sum of days sales outstanding plus contract asset days plus production days supply on hand less accounts payable days.
Investments in capital expenditures were $9.8 million during the quarter.
Cash and cash equivalents were $49.3 million and borrowings outstanding on credit facilities were $126.2 million at June 30, 2019, including $91.5 million classified as long-term.

Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements contained within this release are considered forward-looking under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are subject to risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to, successful integration of acquisitions, ramp up of new operations, global economic conditions, geopolitical environment, significant volume reductions from key contract customers, loss of key customers or suppliers, financial stability of key customers and suppliers, availability or cost of raw materials, impact related to tariffs and other trade barriers, and increased competitive pricing pressures reflecting excess industry capacities. Additional cautionary statements regarding other risk factors that could have an effect on the future performance of the Company are contained in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2018.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) in the United States in the statement of income, statement of comprehensive income, balance sheet, statement of cash flows, or statement of share owners’ equity of the Company. The non-GAAP financial measures contained herein include adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted EPS, and ROIC. These measures include adjustments in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019 and in the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 related to adjustments to the provision for income taxes resulting from the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Reform”), and for the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2019, for proceeds from lawsuit settlements. Reconciliations of the reported GAAP numbers to these non-GAAP financial measures are included in the financial highlights table below. Management believes it is useful for investors to understand how its core operations performed without the effects of the provisional tax adjustments resulting from Tax Reform and proceeds from the lawsuit settlements. Excluding these amounts allows investors to meaningfully trend, analyze, and benchmark the performance of the Company’s core operations. Many of the Company’s internal performance measures that management uses to make certain operating decisions excludes these items to enable meaningful trending of core operating metrics.
