Second Quarter Highlights include:

Record revenue increases 62% over prior year
GAAP net income, GAAP EPS, adjusted EPS and record adjusted EBITDA exceed estimates
Book-to-bill ratio of 1.11
Record backlog of $319 million

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Jan. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) (www.mrcy.com), reported operating results for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, ended December 31, 2016.

Management Comments

“The business continued to perform extremely well in the second quarter of fiscal 2017,” said Mark Aslett, Mercury’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the quarter we delivered a very strong financial performance with bookings, backlog, revenue, and adjusted EBITDA all reaching record levels. Year-over-year revenues grew more than 60% and adjusted EBITDA grew over 80%, landing within our recently updated target business model. We also completed the acquisition of CES, significantly expanding our addressable market with important, complementary capabilities in mission computing, safety-critical avionics and platform management. Based on our strong year-to-date performance, the continued success of our integration activities and strong backlog, we are raising our guidance for the full fiscal year,” Aslett concluded.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2017 Results

Total Company second quarter fiscal 2017 revenues were $98.0 million, compared to $60.4 million in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Excluding the impact of CES, which was acquired by Mercury on November 4, 2016, revenues would have been $94.1 million, an increase of $33.7 million, or 55.8%, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $5.2 million, or $0.13 per share. Excluding the impact of CES, net income for the second quarter fiscal 2017 would have been $5.0 million, or $0.13 per share.

Adjusted earnings per share (“adjusted EPS”) were $0.30 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to $0.23 per share in the second quarter fiscal 2016. Excluding the impact of CES, adjusted EPS would have been $0.28 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

All per share information is presented on a fully diluted basis.

Second quarter fiscal 2017 adjusted EBITDA for the total Company was $23.0 million and excluding the impact of CES would have been $22.1 million. These compare to $12.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Cash flows from operating activities in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 were a net inflow of $14.2 million, compared to a net inflow of $12.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Free cash flow, defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures, was a net inflow of $6.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to a net inflow of $11.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Bookings

Total bookings for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 were $108.5 million, yielding a total book-to-bill ratio of 1.11 for the quarter and representing a 140% increase compared to $45.2 million in bookings for the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Backlog

Mercury’s total backlog at December 31, 2016 was $318.8 million, a $114.0 million increase from a year ago. Of the December 31, 2016 total backlog, $278.5 million represents orders expected to be shipped over the next 12 months.

Business Outlook

This section presents our current expectations and estimates, given current visibility, on our business outlook for the current fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2017. It is possible that actual performance will differ materially from the estimates given, either on the upside or on the downside. Investors should consider all of the risks with respect to these estimates, including those listed in the Safe Harbor Statement below and in our periodic filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and make themselves aware of how these risks may impact our actual performance.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2017, revenues are forecasted to be in the range of approximately $103 million to $107 million. GAAP net income for the third quarter is expected to be approximately $5.6 million to $6.8 million, or $0.14 to $0.17 per share, assuming no restructuring, acquisition, or financing related expenses in the period. Adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.29 to $0.32 per share, assuming an effective tax rate of 35%. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 is expected to be in the range of $22.8 million to $24.7 million.

For the full 2017 fiscal year, before adding the impact of CES, we now expect revenue to be between $377 million to $384 million, up from our prior expectation of $370 million to $380 million. Including CES, total revenue for fiscal 2017 is expected to be approximately $393 million to $400 million, with total GAAP net income of $19.4 million to $21.4 million, or $0.49 to $0.54 per share. Total company adjusted EBITDA for the full fiscal year is now expected to be approximately $87.5 million to $90.5 million, representing approximately 22.3% to 22.6% of revenue. Adjusted EPS for fiscal 2017 is now expected to be approximately $1.09 to $1.14 per share, assuming an effective tax rate of 35%.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company provides adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income, adjusted earnings per share “adjusted EPS”, and free cash flow, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income, and adjusted EPS exclude 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, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. Management believes these non-GAAP 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 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. Additionally, the Company incurs non-cash interest expenses associated with obtaining its credit facilities. 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 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 and other 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. The Company’s adjustments reflected in restructuring and other charges are typically related to acquisitions and organizational redesign programs initiated as part of discrete post-acquisition integration activities. Management believes these items are non-routine and may not be 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 and financing costs. The Company incurs transaction costs related to acquisition and potential acquisition opportunities, such as legal and accounting fees and expenses. Although we may incur such third-party costs and other related charges and adjustments, it is not indicative that any transaction will be consummated. Additionally, the Company incurs unused revolver and bank fees associated with maintaining its credit facilities. Management believes these items are outside the normal operations of the Company’s business and are not indicative of ongoing operating results.
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.
Litigation and settlement income and expense. The Company periodically receives income and incurs expenses related to pending claims and litigation and associated legal fees and potential case settlements and/or judgments. Although we may incur such costs and other related charges and adjustments, it is not indicative of any particular outcome until the matter is fully resolved. Management believes these items are outside the normal operations of the Company’s business and are not indicative of ongoing operating results. The Company periodically receives warranty claims from customers and makes warranty claims towards its vendors and supply chain. Management believes the expenses and gains associated with these recurring warranty items are within the normal operations and operating cycle of the Company's business. Therefore, management deems no adjustments are necessary unless under extraordinary circumstances.
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.
The following table reconciles the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP financial measure.

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.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
(In thousands, except per share data)
Adjusted income and adjusted earnings per share ("adjusted EPS") are non-GAAP measures for reporting financial performance, exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have 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 results and trends and allows for comparability with our peer company index and industry. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company uses these measures along with the corresponding GAAP financial measures to manage the Company’s business and to evaluate its performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace. The Company defines adjusted income as income before amortization of intangible assets, restructuring and other charges, impairment of long-lived assets, acquisition and financing costs, fair value adjustments from purchase accounting, litigation and settlement income and expense, stock-based compensation expense. The impact to income taxes includes the impact to the effective tax rate, current tax provision and deferred tax provision. Adjusted EPS expresses adjusted income on a per share basis using weighted average diluted shares outstanding.
