See the information under the caption "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for a discussion regarding the usefulness of the non-GAAP financial measures contained in this release, definitions of those non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013 cash provided by operating activities was $16 million or 221% of net income, compared to cash provided by operating activities of $22 million or 195% of net income for the same quarter last year. Fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013 free cash flow (which is a non-GAAP term and is defined below) was $13 million compared to $20 million for the same quarter last year. On a sequential quarter comparison basis, third quarter of Fiscal 2013 cash provided by operating activities was $16 million or 191% of net income and free cash flow was $15 million.

Fiscal 2013 free cash flow was $40 million compared to $56 million for the same period last year. During Fiscal 2013, Black Box invested $37 million to repurchase common stock and $5 million to pay dividends.

The Company's six-month order backlog was $201 million at March 31, 2013, compared to $199 million for the same quarter last year. On a sequential quarter-end comparison basis, the Company's six-month order backlog was $188 million at December 29, 2012.

For Fiscal 2014, the Company is targeting reported revenues of approximately $1.00 billion to $1.02 billion and corresponding operating earnings per share in the range of $2.70 to $2.90. Included in these projections is an effective tax rate of 39.5%. For the first quarter of Fiscal 2014, the Company is targeting reported revenues of approximately $238 million to $243 million and corresponding operating earnings per share in the range of 53¢ to 58¢. These targets exclude intangibles amortization and the impact of changes in the fair market value of the Company's interest-rate swaps, and are before any new mergers and acquisition activity that has not been announced.

Commenting on the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013 results, Michael McAndrew, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our results from the fourth quarter and Fiscal 2013 reflect both the challenges and opportunities in the markets that we serve. We continue to experience top line revenue pressure however, pricing has stabilized and our business model continues to generate significant positive operating cash flow.

"As we enter Fiscal 2014, I am confident that the programs we are putting in place will allow us to grow share in our existing markets while profitably expanding into new markets. Through execution of these programs, I expect Black Box to deliver organic revenue growth while continuing to generate significant operating cash flow in the new fiscal year."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As a supplement to United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company provides non-GAAP financial measures such as free cash flow, operating income before provision for income taxes ("EBIT"), operating net income, operating earnings per share ("EPS"), Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") (as adjusted), Adjusted EBITDA (as adjusted), adjusted operating income and same-office revenue comparisons to illustrate the Company's operational performance. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided explanations regarding use by the Company's management ("Management") and the usefulness of non-GAAP financial measures, definitions of the non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are provided below.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate the Company's historical and prospective financial performance as well as its performance relative to its competitors, (b) to set internal sales targets and associated operating budgets, (c) to allocate resources and (d) to measure operational profitability. Management uses similar non-GAAP measures as an important factor in determining variable compensation for Management and its team members. Moreover, the Company has historically reported these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results.

While Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. The limitations include (i) the non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, are not reported by all of the Company's competitors and may not be directly comparable to similarly-titled measures of the Company's competitors due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation, (ii) the non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain non-cash amortization of intangible assets on acquisitions, however, they do not specifically exclude the added benefits of these costs, such as revenue and contributing operating margin, (iii) the non-GAAP financial measures exclude the non-cash change in fair value of the Company's interest-rate swaps which will continue to impact the Company's earnings until the interest-rate swaps are settled, (iv) the non-GAAP financial measures exclude the non-cash goodwill impairment loss, (v) the non-GAAP financial measures exclude costs, primarily cash costs, for restructuring incurred during the periods reported in an attempt to right-size the organization and more appropriately align the expense structure with anticipated revenues and changing market demand for its solutions and services that will impact future operating results, (vi) the non-GAAP financial measures exclude the non-cash joint venture investment loss and (vii) there is no assurance the excluded items in the non-GAAP financial measures will not occur in the future. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measurements, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Free cash flow

Management believes that free cash flow, defined by the Company as cash provided by (used for) operating activities less net capital expenditures, plus proceeds from stock option exercises, plus or minus foreign currency translation adjustments, is an important measurement of liquidity as it represents the total cash available to the Company. Management's reasons for exclusion of each item are explained in further detail below.

Net capital expenditures
The Company believes net capital expenditures must be taken into account along with cash provided by (used for) operating activities to more properly reflect the actual cash available to the Company. Net capital expenditures directly impact the availability of the Company's operating cash. Net capital expenditures are comprised of capital expenditures and capital disposals.

Foreign currency exchange impact on cash
Due to the size of the Company's international operations, and the ability of the Company to utilize cash generated from foreign operations locally without the need to convert such currencies to U.S. dollars on a regular basis, the Company believes that it is appropriate to adjust its operating cash flows to take into account the positive or negative impact of such adjustments as such adjustment provides an appropriate measure of the availability of the Company's operating cash on a world-wide basis. A limitation of adjusting cash flows to account for the foreign currency impact is that it may not provide an accurate measure of cash available in U.S. dollars.

Proceeds from stock option exercises
The Company believes that proceeds from stock option exercises should be added to cash provided by (used for) operating activities to more accurately reflect the actual cash available to the Company. The Company historically has demonstrated a recurring inflow of cash related to its stock-based compensation plans and, since this cash is immediately available to the Company, it directly impacts the availability of the Company's operating cash. The amount of proceeds from stock option exercises is dependent upon a number of variables, including the number and exercise price of outstanding options and the trading price of the Company's common stock. In addition, the timing of stock option exercises is under the control of the individual option holder and is not under the control of the Company. As a result, there can be no assurance as to the timing or amount of any proceeds from stock option exercises.

A reconciliation of cash provided by (used for) operating activities to free cash flow is presented below:

          4Q13   3Q13   4Q12   FY13   FY12
Net cash provided by (used for) operating activities         $ 15,975   $ 16,286   $ 21,947   $ 46,701   $ 65,821

Free cash flow         $ 13,013     $ 15,444     $ 20,134     $ 40,110     $ 56,041  
 

Operating net income and operating earnings per share

Management believes that operating net income, defined by the Company as net income (loss) plus provision (benefit) for income taxes and reconciling items less operational income taxes, and operating EPS, defined as operating net income divided by weighted average common shares outstanding (diluted), provide investors additional important information to enable them to assess, in the way Management assesses, the Company's current and future operations. Reconciling items include amortization of intangible assets on acquisitions, the change in fair value of the interest-rate swaps, the goodwill impairment loss and the joint venture investment loss, each of which are non-cash charges, and restructuring, which is a cash charge. Management's reason for exclusion of each item is explained in further detail below.

Amortization of intangible assets on acquisitions
The Company incurs non-cash amortization expense from intangible assets related to various acquisitions it has made in recent years. Management excludes these expenses and their related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP financial measures when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company because these costs are fixed at the time of an acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by Management after the acquisition.

Change in fair value of the interest-rate swaps
To mitigate the risk of interest-rate fluctuations associated with the Company's variable rate debt, the Company enters into interest-rate swaps ("interest-rate swaps") that do not qualify as a cash flow hedge. Thus, the Company records the change in fair value of the interest-rate swaps as an asset/liability within the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets with the offset to Interest expense (income) within the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. Management excludes this non-cash expense and the related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP financial measures when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company because these costs generally cannot be changed or influenced by Management.

Goodwill impairment
The Company incurred a loss during the third quarter of Fiscal 2012 due to goodwill impairment in its North America and Europe reporting segments. Management excludes these expenses and their related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP financial measures when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company because these costs are generally non-recurring and cannot be changed or influenced by Management.

Restructuring
The Company believes that incurring costs for employee severance and facility consolidations in the current period(s) in an attempt to right-size the organization and more appropriately align the expense structure with anticipated revenues and changing market demand for its solutions and services will result in a long-term positive impact on financial performance in the future. Restructuring costs are presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. However, due to the amount of additional costs incurred during a single or possibly successive periods, Management believes that exclusion of these costs and their related tax impact provides a more accurate reflection of the Company's ongoing financial performance.

Joint venture investment loss
The Company incurred a loss during the third quarter of Fiscal 2013 due to the expected divestiture of our non-controlling interest in Genesis Networks Integration Services, LLC, a minority business enterprise joint venture company which was formed in conjunction with Genesis Networks Enterprises, LLC. Management excludes these expenses and their related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP financial measures when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of the Company because these costs are generally non-recurring and cannot be changed or influenced by Management.

Operating EPS                             $ 0.67     $ 0.79     $ 0.65     $ 2.67     $ 3.03  

* EPS impact is the result of excluding the provision (benefit) for income taxes and the reconciling items and utilizing an operational effective tax rate.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

Management believes that EBITDA (as adjusted), defined as Net income (loss) plus provision (benefit) for income taxes, interest, depreciation, amortization, the goodwill impairment loss and the joint venture investment loss, is a widely-accepted measure of profitability that may be used to measure the Company's ability to service its debt. Adjusted EBITDA (as adjusted), defined as EBITDA plus stock compensation expense, may also be used to measure the Company's ability to service its debt. Stock compensation is an integral part of ongoing operations since it is considered similar to other types of compensation to employees. However, Management believes that varying levels of stock compensation expense could result in misleading period-over-period comparisons and is providing an adjusted disclosure which excludes stock compensation expense.

A reconciliation of Net income (loss) to EBITDA (as adjusted) and Adjusted EBITDA (as adjusted) is presented below:
