Mercury Computer Systems Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Oct 25, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, http://www.mc.com), a trusted provider of commercially developed ISR subsystems, reported operating results for its first quarter of fiscal 2012 ended September 30, 2011. All results are presented and compared on a continuing operations basis.

First Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results

First quarter fiscal 2012 revenues were $49.1 million, a decrease of $3.0 million from the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. Revenues from commercial customers decreased by $10.3 million, while revenues from defense customers increased by $7.3 million as compared with the prior year's first quarter.

GAAP income from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $2.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $3.7 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the prior year's first quarter.

First quarter fiscal 2012 GAAP income from continuing operations includes approximately $1.3 million in tax expense, $1.9 million in depreciation expense, $2.0 million in stock-based compensation costs, and $0.8 million in amortization of acquired intangible assets. First quarter fiscal 2012 adjusted EBITDA (earnings from continuing operations before interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, restructuring, impairment of long-lived assets, acquisition costs and other related expenses, fair value adjustments from purchase accounting, and stock-based compensation costs) was $8.7 million, compared to $8.8 million for the prior year's first quarter.

Cash flows from operating activities were a net inflow of $4.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012, compared to a net inflow of $9.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Free cash flow, defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures for property and equipment, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was a net inflow of $2.6 million, compared to a net inflow of $7.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2011 were $165.9 million, an increase of $3.0 million from June 30, 2011.

Management Comments

"The first quarter of fiscal 2012 was a very solid one for Mercury, with the exception of a temporary government-related delay in an $8 million order for a classified airborne radar program," said Mark Aslett, President and CEO, Mercury Computer Systems. "We currently expect to book and ship the entire order this quarter. As a result, while gross margin exceeded our guidance, the shift of this single order into Q2 caused total revenue, GAAP earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA to fall short of expectations for the first quarter."

"At the same time, Mercury's underlying business metrics met and in some areas exceeded our expectations in the first quarter," Aslett said. "Our strategy to focus Mercury on well-funded areas in the defense marketplace - primarily ISR, electronic warfare and missile defense - has enabled us to consistently grow our business in a challenging U.S. defense budget environment. Mercury's first-quarter book-to-bill ratio reached 1.3-to- 1 as defense bookings grew 47% year-over-year and 4% sequentially. Total defense revenue, including ACS and Mercury Federal, increased 19% year-over-year to $45.0 million."

"Looking ahead, the second quarter is shaping up well," said Aslett. "The major programs on which we participate have been, and should continue to be, well-insulated from budgetary pressures, and in some cases are entering favorable upgrade cycles. Our defense design win and bookings activity both remain strong, and our backlog continues to grow. As a result, we believe Mercury is on track to perform in line with our previous guidance for the full year."

"Mercury's longer-term outlook is equally encouraging," Aslett said. "Our business model is aligned with the government's emerging priorities in defense procurement reform. We are strongly positioned as the premier commercial ISR subsystem outsourcing partner to the defense prime contractors. Also, we have both the right strategy and the liquidity necessary to supplement Mercury's organic growth through acquisitions."

Backlog

Mercury's total backlog at September 30, 2011 was $101.8 million, a $14.9 million sequential increase from June 30, 2011, and a $2.3 million decrease from September 30, 2010. Of the September 30, 2011 total backlog, $89.9 million represents orders scheduled to be shipped over the next 12 months. The defense backlog at September 30, 2011 was $97.8 million, a $16.3 million sequential increase from June 30, 2011, and a $16.7 million increase from September 30, 2010. The total book-to-bill ratio was 1.3-to-1 for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to 1.0-to-1 for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 and 1.0-to-1 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Revenues by Operating Segment

Advanced Computing Solutions (ACS) -- Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 from ACS were $47.3 million, representing a decrease of $4.6 million from the first quarter of fiscal 2011, as a result of a decrease of $10.3 million in commercial and an increase of $5.7 million in ACS defense. Approximately 91% of ACS revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 related to defense business, as compared to approximately 72% in the first quarter of fiscal 2011.

Mercury Federal Systems (MFS)-- Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 from MFS were $4.2 million, representing an increase of $2.3 million from the first quarter of fiscal 2011.

The revenues by operating segment do not include adjustments to eliminate inter-company revenues included in those operating segments of $2.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

Business Outlook

This section presents our current expectations and estimates, given current visibility, on our business outlook for the upcoming fiscal quarter. 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, including those listed in the Safe Harbor Statement below, with respect to these estimates, and make themselves aware of the risk factors that may impact our actual performance.

Consistent with the forecast we provided last quarter, for the full year fiscal 2012 we continue to expect an organic revenue growth rate of approximately 10%, year-over-year. We expect our fiscal 2012 operating margin to be in line with the low end of our current target business model range at approximately 12% and our adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue to be in line with the model's high end of approximately 18%. Due to the impact of the new shares issued via a follow-on offering in fiscal 2011, we currently expect EPS for fiscal 2012 to be approximately flat, year-over-year.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2012, revenues are expected to be in the range of approximately $67 million to $69 million. At this range, GAAP income from continuing operations per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.24 to $0.27.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 is expected to be in the range of $15.7 million to $17.0 million.

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 provide a more complete understanding of 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 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. 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 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. 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 that are consistent with periods prior to the Company's adoption of FASB ASC 718, and allows comparisons of the Company's 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 for property and equipment 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.
