In fiscal 2013 the Company generated record revenue of $284.0 million reflecting 4% growth versus revenue of $272.3 million in fiscal 2012. Foreign currency negatively impacted revenue by approximately $7.1 million versus fiscal 2012. US Dollar strength versus the Euro and Canadian Dollar were the primary causes at $4.7 and $1.5 million, respectively. Gross margin percentage was 46.8% for fiscal 2013 compared to 48.5% in fiscal 2012. Fiscal 2013 margins were impacted by an increase in Greenfield revenue, which grew to 42% of revenue in fiscal 2013 versus 39% in fiscal 2012. Greenfield projects typically generate lower margins than MRO/UE sales, due to the higher level of low margin third party products associated with Greenfield sales. Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees was $72.4 million, an increase of $1.0 million versus fiscal 2012.
Net income was $27.0 million versus $12.0 million in fiscal 2012. After excluding transaction expenses, the Company generated record adjusted net income of $28.8 million and $0.91 per fully diluted common share in fiscal 2013 versus fiscal 2012 adjusted net income of $25.9 million and $0.85 per fully diluted common share. Foreign currency headwinds reduced fiscal 2013 Adjusted EPS by $0.02 per fully diluted share versus fiscal 2012. Our cash balance for fiscal 2013 grew 104%, from $21.5 million to $43.8 million.
Q4 2013 revenue of $71.7 million reflected an increase of approximately 3% compared to revenue of $69.6 million in Q4 2012. Gross margin was 44.5% of revenue in Q4 2013 versus 49.6% in Q4 2012. The mix of Greenfield revenue grew to 43% in Q4 2013 versus 39% in the year ago period. Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees was $15.7 million in Q4 2013 versus $18.1 million generated in Q4 2012.

At current interest rates, the Company expects its interest expense to be reduced by approximately $7.5 million per year, or $0.23 per share, pre-tax. Total cash savings over the next four years (the remaining life of the notes) are expected to be approximately $30 million. The term loan will mature in 2018.
