Revenue was $486 million, an increase of 1% from $481 million in the second quarter of 2017 and an increase of 28% from $381 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Net income was $76.0 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, compared to net income of $120.4 million, which included a net gain of $59.9 million resulting from the sale of the Data Analytics Solutions Business Unit, or $2.19 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017, and $32.5 million, or $0.60 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP net earnings, which exclude special charges and credits, were $85.9 million, or $1.56 per diluted share, compared to $77.7 million, or $1.41 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017, and $47.9 million, or $0.88 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2016.

"We are very pleased with our continued progress in 2017 in achieving our objectives of sustainable and profitable growth," said Gerald Colella, Chief Executive Officer and President.  Mr. Colella added, "This quarter, we again set new records for quarterly revenue and Non-GAAP net earnings which are a direct result of the strategic investments we have made, and will continue to make, in the areas of product development as well as sales and applications support functions.  Looking ahead, we see a wide range of new opportunities to solve customer complex problems across the large and growing markets we serve."

"We also continue to execute on our strategy to delever our balance sheet and significantly reduce our interest cost. During the third quarter, we completed our third successful re-pricing of our Term Loan and voluntarily pre-paid another $125 million of principal. Exiting the third quarter, our debt balance is $448 million down from $780 million at loan origination in April of 2016, our debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio is below 1 times and we have reduced our non-GAAP interest expense by approximately 60% on an annualized basis," said Seth Bagshaw, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Additional Financial Information
The Company had $535 million in cash and short-term investments as of September 30, 2017 and during the third quarter of 2017, MKS paid a dividend of $9.5 million or $0.175 per diluted share.

Fourth Quarter 2017 Outlook  
Based on current business levels, the Company expects that revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 may range from $480 to $520 million.

At these volumes, GAAP net income could range from $1.34 to $1.59 per diluted share and non-GAAP net earnings could range from $1.52 to $1.76 per diluted share.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Results
Non-GAAP amounts exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, an asset impairment, costs associated with completed and announced acquisitions, acquisition integration costs, restructuring charges, certain excess and obsolete inventory charges, fees and expenses related to re-pricing of our Term Loan, amortization of debt issuance costs, net proceeds from an insurance policy, costs associated with the sale of a business, the tax effect of a legal entity restructuring, other discrete tax benefits and charges, and the related tax effect of these adjustments.  These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP).  MKS' management believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors for comparing prior periods and analyzing ongoing business trends and operating results.  Annualized GAAP interest expense based upon $780 million principal outstanding and using the LIBOR based interest rate spread in effect on April 29, 2016, was $44.0 million.  Annualized GAAP interest expense based upon $448 million in principal currently outstanding and LIBOR plus 200 basis points would be $19.5 million. Pro-forma revenue amounts assume the acquisition of Newport Corporation had occurred as of the beginning of 2016.
