In fiscal 2013 the company generated record revenue of $284 million, reflecting four percent 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 percent for fiscal 2013 compared to 48.5 percent in fiscal 2012. Fiscal 2013 margins were impacted by an increase in Greenfield revenue, which grew to 42 percent of revenue in fiscal 2013 versus 39 percent 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 million versus fiscal 2012.
Net income was $27 million versus $12 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 percent, from $21.5 million to $43.8 million.
Q4 2013 revenue of $71.7 million reflected an increase of approximately three percent compared to revenue of $69.6 million in Q4 2012. Gross margin was 44.5 percent of revenue in Q4 2013 versus 49.6 percent in Q4 2012.
The mix of Greenfield revenue grew to 43 percent in Q4 2013 versus 39 percent 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.
Q4 2013 net income of $5.6 million reflected a decrease of $0.7 million versus $6.3 million generated in Q4 2012. Free cash flow for the quarter amounted to $0.45 per share versus $0.22 per share in Q4 2012. Backlog at the end of the quarter was $95.2 million.
Subsequent to the end of the fiscal year, Thermon completed the redemption of its 9.5 percent senior secured notes on May 20, 2013.
