MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ:MKSI) Files An 8-K Regulation FD Disclosure

Item7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

MKS Instruments, Inc. (the Company) has invited certain lenders
to a meeting, scheduled for June21, 2017, for the purpose of
considering a potential repricing of the Companys existing term
loan (the Potential Repricing). At this meeting, the Company
plans to re-affirm, as of the date thereof, the Companys previous
guidance for the quarter ending June30, 2017. Attached as Exhibit
99.1 and incorporated by reference in this Item 7.01 are selected
slides to be presented at the meeting, which slides include such
guidance. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able
to close the Potential Repricing, which is subject to market and
other conditions.

Exhibit 99.1 contains results that are not generally accepted
accounting principles measures (non-GAAP). Non-GAAP amounts exclude
amortization of acquired intangible assets, an asset impairment,
costs associated with completed and announced acquisitions,
acquisition integration costs, sale of previously written down
inventory, an inventory step-up adjustment related to an
acquisition, restructuring charges, certain excess and obsolete
inventory charges, fees and expenses related to re-pricing of
term loan, amortization of debt issuance costs, net proceeds from
an insurance policy, the tax effect of a legal entity
restructuring, other discrete tax benefits and charges, and the
related tax benefits and charges, and the related tax effect of
these adjustments. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance
with Accounting Principles Generally Accepted in the United
States of America (GAAP) and should be viewed in addition to, and
not as a substitute for, MKS reported results. 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.

Please see the
Appendix provided in Exhibit 99.1 entitled GAAP to Non-GAAP
Reconciliations for reconciliations of our non-GAAP measures to
the comparable GAAP measures and the definitions of terms used in
Exhibit 99.1.
