Gross profit and gross margin in the full year of 2015 were $339.8 million and 45.2%, respectively, compared with $253.2 million and 43.4%, respectively, in the full year of 2014.

GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $16.0 million, or $0.37 per share (diluted), up from $13.1 million, or $0.31 per share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2014.  GAAP net income for the full year of 2015 was $56.8 million, or $1.31 per share (diluted), up from $35.4 million, or $0.83 per share (diluted), for the full year of 2014.  GAAP net income for the full year of 2015 included a pre-tax gain of approximately $0.6 million related to the sale of the Company's Thermal Products business.

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) and adjusted EBITDA margin for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $35.6 million and 18.9%, respectively, up from $30.1 million and 15.2%, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin for the full year of 2015 were $143.2 million and 19.0%, respectively, up from $88.4 million and 15.2%, respectively, in the full year of 2014.

A reconciliation of each of the Company's non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measure (the "Reconciliation") is included at the end of this press release. The inclusion of the financial results of the Company's SD business from August 7, 2014 had a significant effect on the consolidated results of operations of the Company for 2014 and, as a result, comparisons between the Company's financial results for 2014 and those of later periods are of inherently limited value.
