Management Comments

"Mercury delivered results at or above the high end of our third-quarter guidance range, plus record defense bookings, in a challenging defense industry environment," said Mark Aslett, President and CEO, Mercury Systems. "At the same time, we continued to make rapid progress implementing the second and final phase of our acquisition integration plan and have accelerated our time to completion. This moves us substantially closer to our goal of creating a fully integrated business that we can continue to profitably grow organically and scale through potential acquisitions going forward."

"Given the strong performance of the business in the third quarter, we are substantially raising our EPS and adjusted EBITDA guidance range for fiscal 2014," said Aslett. "In addition, the bookings growth we delivered this quarter and the strong bookings we currently expect for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 position us well as we head into next fiscal year."

"With the phase II integration actions completed to date expected to yield roughly 70 percent of the $16 million in total annualized expense reductions anticipated for the plan, and the target completion date now six months ahead of schedule, we believe we are well-positioned to achieve our target business model for fiscal 2015 assuming approximately 10% annual revenue growth for the year."

"Looking further ahead, we continue to believe that Mercury's strategy, technology, capabilities and ongoing programs and platforms align well with the Defense Department's new roles and missions. At the same time, we expect that completing the final phase of our acquisition integration strategy will enable us to continue creating substantial operating leverage in our business. This leverage should further strengthen Mercury's position to deliver significantly improved profitability, cash flow generation and shareholder value going forward," Aslett concluded.

Backlog

Mercury's total backlog at March 31, 2014 was $151.1 million, a $23.4 million increase from March 31, 2013. Of the March 31, 2014 total backlog, $116.0 million represents orders expected to be shipped over the next 12 months. The defense backlog at March 31, 2014 was $137.2 million, a $28.5 million increase from March 31, 2013. Bookings for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were $76.1 million, a 57% increase, compared to $48.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The total book-to-bill ratio was 1.4 for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 0.9 for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Revenues by Reporting Segment

Mercury Commercial Electronics (MCE) — Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 from MCE were $47.6 million, representing an increase of $3.7 million, or 8%, from the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase in revenue compared to last year's third quarter related primarily to higher revenue from several UAV programs and a classified airborne program. Approximately 91% of MCE revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 related to defense business, as compared to approximately 89% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Mercury Defense and Intelligence Systems (MDIS) — Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 from MDIS were $11.0 million, representing a decrease of $2.0 million from the third quarter of fiscal 2013 due primarily to customer funding delays.

The revenues by reporting segment do not include adjustments to eliminate $3.1 million of inter-company revenues included in those reporting segments in the third quarter of fiscal 2014, and $2.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

The IDIQ was originally received by KOR Electronics (now Mercury Defense Systems) in March 2010 and increased in 2013.

March – Mercury Systems announced a progress update on its acquisition integration plan previously announced in its second-quarter fiscal 2014 financial results release. Actions recently completed include the consolidation of another facility into the Hudson, NH Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC). In addition, Mercury migrated both its Hudson, NH and West Caldwell, NJ AMCs into a common manufacturing and accounting system. The Company also successfully launched an integrated program management system within its Mercury Commercial Electronics business unit, and implemented common payroll and banking platforms companywide.

Use of Non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company provides adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain non-cash and other specified charges. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to help investors understand its past financial performance and prospects for the future. However, the presentation of adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. Management believes the adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow financial measures assist in providing a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends, and management uses these measures along with the corresponding GAAP financial measures to manage the Company's business, to evaluate its performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace, and to establish operational goals. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial results discussed in this press release is contained in the attached exhibits.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
(In thousands)
Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure for reporting financial performance, excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that exclusion of these items assists in providing a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends, and management uses these measures along with the corresponding GAAP financial measures to manage the Company's business, to evaluate its performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace, and to establish operational goals. The adjustments to calculate this non-GAAP financial measure, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:
Interest income and expense. The Company receives interest income on investments and incurs interest expense on loans, capital leases and other financing arrangements. These amounts may vary from period to period due to changes in cash and debt balances and interest rates driven by general market conditions or other circumstances outside of the normal course of Mercury's operations.
Income taxes. The Company's GAAP tax expense can fluctuate materially from period to period due to tax adjustments that are not directly related to underlying operating performance or to the current period of operations.
Depreciation. The Company incurs depreciation expense related to capital assets purchased to support the ongoing operations of the business. These assets are recorded at cost or fair value and are depreciated using the straight-line method over the useful life of the asset. Purchases of such assets may vary significantly from period to period and without any direct correlation to underlying operating performance.
Amortization of acquired intangible assets. The Company incurs amortization of intangibles related to various acquisitions it has made and license agreements. These intangible assets are valued at the time of acquisition, are amortized over a period of several years after acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after acquisition.
Restructuring and other charges. The Company incurs restructuring charges in connection with management's decisions to undertake certain actions to realign operating expenses through workforce reductions and the closure of certain Company facilities, businesses and product lines. Management believes this item is outside the normal operations of the Company's business and is not indicative of ongoing operating results.
Impairment of long-lived assets. The Company incurs impairment charges of long-lived assets based on events that may or may not be within the control of management. Management believes these items are outside the normal operations of the Company's business and are not indicative of ongoing operating results.
Acquisition costs and other related expenses. The Company incurs costs associated with third-party professional services related to acquisition and potential acquisition opportunities, such as legal and accounting fees. Although we may incur such costs and other related charges and adjustments, it is not indicative that any transaction will be consummated. Management believes the exclusion of these items eliminates fluctuations in our selling, general, and administrative expenses related to acquisition activities which are unrelated to ongoing operations.
Fair value adjustments from purchase accounting. As a result of applying purchase accounting rules to acquired assets and liabilities, certain fair value adjustments are recorded in the opening balance sheet of acquired companies. These adjustments are then reflected in the Company's income statements in periods subsequent to the acquisition. In addition, the impact of any changes to originally recorded contingent consideration amounts are reflected in the income statements in the period of the change. Management believes these items are outside the normal operations of the Company and are not indicative of ongoing operating results.
Stock-based compensation expense. The Company incurs expense related to stock-based compensation included in its GAAP presentation of cost of revenues, selling, general and administrative expense and research and development expense. Although stock-based compensation is an expense of the Company and viewed as a form of compensation, these expenses vary in amount from period to period, and are affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management, such as the market price and volatility of the Company's shares, risk-free interest rates and the expected term and forfeiture rates of the awards. Management believes that exclusion of these expenses allows comparisons of operating results to those of other companies, both public, private or foreign, that disclose non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation.
Mercury uses adjusted EBITDA as an important indicator of the operating performance of its business. Management excludes the above-described items from its internal forecasts and models when establishing internal operating budgets, supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to the Company's board of directors, determining the portion of bonus compensation for executive officers and other key employees based on operating performance, evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in the Company's operations, and allocating resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA permits a comparative assessment of its operating performance, relative to its performance based on its GAAP results, while isolating the effects of charges that may vary from period to period without any correlation to underlying operating performance. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. The Company believes that trends in its adjusted EBITDA are valuable indicators of its operating performance.
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the adjusted EBITDA financial adjustments described above, and investors should not infer from the Company's presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

Free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure for reporting cash flow, is defined as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. Management believes free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on cash available for investment and acquisitions after making capital investments required to support ongoing business operations and long-term value creation. The Company believes that trends in its free cash flow are valuable indicators of its operating performance and liquidity.
Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company expects to continue to incur expenditures similar to the free cash flow financial adjustment described above, and investors should not infer from the Company's presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure that these expenditures reflect all of the Company's obligations which require cash.
