Therefore, the Company encourages investors and others interested in Mercury to review the information the Company posts on the social media and other communication channels listed on its website.
B.Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to the Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual consolidated financial statements have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations; however, in the opinion of management the financial information reflects all adjustments, consisting of adjustments of a normal recurring nature, necessary for fair presentation. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes for the fiscal year ended July 1, 2022 which are contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on August 16, 2022. The results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year.
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
All references to the first quarter of fiscal 2023 are to the quarter ended September 30, 2022. There were 13 weeks during the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, respectively.
USE OF ESTIMATES
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
BUSINESS COMBINATIONS
The Company utilizes the acquisition method of accounting under ASC 805, Business Combinations, (“ASC 805”), for all transactions and events in which it obtains control over one or more other businesses, to recognize the fair value of all assets and liabilities acquired, even if less than one hundred percent ownership is acquired, and in establishing the acquisition date fair value as the measurement date for all assets and liabilities assumed. The Company also utilizes ASC 805 for the initial recognition and measurement, subsequent measurement and accounting, and disclosure of assets and liabilities arising from contingencies in business combinations.
7


FOREIGN CURRENCY
Local currencies are the functional currency for the Company’s subsidiaries in Switzerland, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, Spain and Canada. The accounts of foreign subsidiaries are translated using exchange rates in effect at period-end for assets and liabilities and at average exchange rates during the period for results of operations. The related translation adjustments are reported in Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (“AOCI”) in shareholders’ equity. Gains (losses) resulting from non-U.S. currency transactions are included in Other expense, net in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss and were immaterial for all periods presented.
DERIVATIVES
The Company records the fair value of its derivative financial instruments in its condensed consolidated financial statements in other non-current assets, or other non-current liabilities depending on their net position, regardless of the purpose or intent for holding the derivative contract. Changes in the fair value of the derivative financial instruments are either recognized periodically in earnings or in shareholders’ equity as a component of Other comprehensive income (“OCI”). Changes in the fair value of cash flow hedges that qualify for hedge accounting treatment are recorded in OCI and reclassified into earnings in the same line item on the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income as the impact of the hedged transaction when the underlying contract matures and, for interest rate exposure derivatives, over the term of the corresponding debt instrument. Changes in the fair values of derivatives not qualifying for hedge accounting are reported in earnings as they occur. All derivatives for the Company qualified for hedge accounting as of September 30, 2022.
REVENUE RECOGNITION
The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, (“ASC 606”). Revenues are derived from the sales of products that are grouped into one of the following three categories: (i) components; (ii) modules and sub-assemblies; and (iii) integrated subsystems. The Company also generates revenues from the performance of services, including systems engineering support, consulting, maintenance and other support, testing and installation. Each promised good or service within a contract is accounted for separately under the guidance of ASC 606 if they are distinct. Promised goods or services not meeting the criteria for being a distinct performance obligation are bundled into a single performance obligation with other goods or services that together meet the criteria for being distinct. The appropriate allocation of the transaction price and recognition of revenue is then determined for the bundled performance obligation.
Revenue recognized at a point in time generally relates to contracts that include a combination of components, modules and sub-assemblies, integrated subsystems and related system integration or other services. Contracts with distinct performance obligations recognized at a point in time, with or without an allocation of the transaction price, totaled 37% and 47% of revenues for the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, respectively.
The Company also engages in over time contracts for development, production and service activities and recognizes revenue for performance obligations over time. These over time contracts involve the design, development, manufacture, or modification of complex modules and sub-assemblies or integrated subsystems and related services. Over time contracts include both fixed-price and cost reimbursable contracts. The Company’s cost reimbursable contracts typically include cost-plus fixed fee and time and material contracts.
Total revenue recognized over time was 63% and 53% of total revenues for the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, respectively.
The Company generally does not provide its customers with rights of product return other than those related to assurance warranty provisions that permit repair or replacement of defective goods over a period of 12 to 36 months. The Company accrues for anticipated warranty costs upon product shipment. The Company does not consider activities related to such assurance warranties, if any, to be a separate performance obligation. The Company does offer separately priced extended warranties which generally range from 12 to 36 months that are treated as separate performance obligations. The transaction price allocated to extended warranties is recognized over time in proportion to the costs expected to be incurred in satisfying the obligations under the contract.
The Company's contracts generally do not include significant financing components. The Company's over time contracts may include milestone payments, which align the payment schedule with the progress towards completion on the performance obligation. Otherwise, the Company's contracts are predicated on payment upon completion of the performance obligation. On certain contracts, the Company may be entitled to receive an advance payment, which is not considered a significant financing component because most contracts have a duration of approximately two years on average and it is used to facilitate inventory demands at the onset of a contract and to safeguard the Company from the failure of the other party to abide by some or all of their obligations under the contract.
All revenues are reported net of government assessed taxes (e.g., sales taxes or value-added taxes). Refer to Note M for disaggregation of revenue for the period.

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE
Accounts receivable, net, represents amounts that have been billed and are currently due from customers. The Company maintains an allowance for credit losses to provide for the estimated amount of receivables that will not be collected. The Company provides credit to customers in the normal course of business. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers’ financial condition and limits the amount of credit extended as necessary. The allowance is based upon an assessment of the customer's credit worthiness, reasonable forecasts about the future, history with the customer, and the age of the receivable balance. The Company typically invoices a customer upon shipment of the product (or completion of a service) for contracts where revenue is recognized at a point in time. For contracts where revenue is recognized over time, the invoicing events are typically based on specified performance obligation deliverables or milestone events, or quantifiable measures of performance.
CONTRACT BALANCES    
Contract balances result from the timing of revenue recognized, billings and cash collections resulting in the generation of contract assets and liabilities. Contract assets represent revenue recognized in excess of amounts invoiced to the customer and the right to payment is not subject to the passage of time. Instead, while the Company has an enforceable right to payment as progress is made over performance obligations, billings to customers are generally predicated on (i) completion of defined milestones, (ii) monthly costs incurred or (iii) final delivery of goods or services. Contract assets are presented as Unbilled receivables and costs in excess of billings on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets. Contract liabilities consist of deferred product revenue, billings in excess of revenues, deferred service revenue and customer advances. Deferred product revenue represents amounts that have been invoiced to customers, but are not yet recognizable as revenue because the Company has not satisfied its performance obligations under the contract. Billings in excess of revenues represents milestone billing contracts where the billings of the contract exceed recognized revenues. Deferred service revenue primarily represents amounts invoiced to customers for annual maintenance contracts or extended warranty contracts, which are recognized over time in proportion to the costs expected to be incurred in satisfying the obligations under the contract. Customer advances represent deposits received from customers on an order. Contract liabilities are included in deferred revenue as well as other non-current liabilities on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets. Contract balances are reported in a net position on a contract-by-contract basis.
The contract asset balances were $330,495 and $303,356 as of September 30, 2022 and July 1, 2022, respectively. The contract asset balance increased due to growth in revenue recognized under over time contracts as well as industry-wide award delays and supply chain constraints impacting the timing of billing events and cash conversion during the first quarter ended September 30, 2022. The contract liability balances were $23,778 and $15,966 as of September 30, 2022 and July 1, 2022, respectively. The increase was due to the timing of milestone billing events across multiple programs.
Revenue recognized for the first quarter ended September 30, 2022 that was included in the contract liability balance at July 1, 2022 was $4,669. Revenue recognized for the first quarter ended October 1, 2021 that was included in the contract liability balance at July 2, 2021 was $13,137.
REMAINING PERFORMANCE OBLIGATIONS
The Company includes in its computation of remaining performance obligations customer orders for which it has accepted signed sales orders. The definition of remaining performance obligations excludes contracts with original expected durations of less than one year, as well as those contracts that provide the customer with the right to cancel or terminate the order with no substantial penalty, even if the Company’s historical experience indicates the likelihood of cancellation or termination is remote. As of September 30, 2022, the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations was $587,129. The Company expects to recognize approximately 63% of its remaining performance obligations as revenue in the next 12 months and the balance thereafter.

WEIGHTED-AVERAGE SHARES
Weighted-average shares were calculated as follows:
First Quarters Ended

Basic weighted-average shares outstanding55,931 55,376 
Effect of dilutive equity instruments  
Diluted weighted-average shares outstanding55,931 55,376 
Equity instruments to purchase 416 and 474 shares of common stock were not included in the calculation of diluted net earnings per share for the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, respectively, because the equity instruments were anti-dilutive.
RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU No. 2021-08, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers, an amendment of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The amendments in this ASU address diversity and inconsistency related to the recognition and measurement of contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination and require that an acquirer recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination in accordance with Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under current U.S. GAAP, an acquirer generally recognizes assets and liabilities assumed in a business combination, including contract assets and liabilities arising from revenue contracts with customers, at fair value on the acquisition date. ASU No. 2021-08 will result in the acquirer recording acquired contract assets and liabilities on the same basis that would have been recorded by the acquiree before the acquisition under Topic 606. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, with early adoption permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that this standard will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
RECENTLY ADOPTED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
Effective July 2, 2022, the Company adopted ASU No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, an amendment of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The amendments in this ASU provide optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease the potential burden in accounting for (or recognizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting. The amendments in this ASU are elective and apply to all entities, subject to meeting certain criteria, that have contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform. This adoption did not have a material impact to the Company's consolidated financial statements or related disclosures.
Effective July 2, 2022, the Company adopted ASU No. 2020-06, Debt - Debt with conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity's Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity, an amendment of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The amendments in this ASU simplify the accounting for convertible debt securities. This adoption did not have a material impact to the Company's consolidated financial statements or related disclosures.

C. Acquisitions
ATLANTA MICRO ACQUISITION
On November 29, 2021, the Company acquired Atlanta Micro, Inc. (“Atlanta Micro”) for a purchase price of $90,000, prior to net working capital and net debt adjustments. Based in Norcross, Georgia, Atlanta Micro is a leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance RF modules and components, including advanced monolithic microwave integrated circuits (“MMICs”) which are critical for high-speed data acquisition applications including electronic warfare, radar and weapons. The Company funded the acquisition through the Company's existing revolving credit facility (the “Revolver”). On March 28, 2022, the Company and former owners of Atlanta Micro agreed to post closing adjustments totaling $58, which increased the Company's net purchase price.
The following table presents the net purchase price and the fair values of the assets and liabilities of Atlanta Micro on a preliminary basis:

Net purchase price$89,240 

The amounts above represent the preliminary fair value estimates as of September 30, 2022 and are subject to subsequent adjustment as the Company obtains additional information during the measurement period and finalizes its fair value estimates. The preliminary identifiable intangible asset estimate includes customer relationships of $27,310 with a useful life of 20 years, completed technology of $7,260 with a useful life of 8 years and backlog of $410 with a useful life of two years. Any subsequent adjustments to these fair value estimates occurring during the measurement period will result in an adjustment to goodwill.
The estimated goodwill of $58,105 largely reflects the potential synergies and expansion of the Company’s offerings across product lines and markets complementary to the Company’s existing products and markets and is not deductible for tax purposes. The goodwill from this acquisition is reported in the Microelectronics reporting unit.

11


AVALEX ACQUISITION
On September 27, 2021, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Avalex Technologies, LLC. (“Avalex”) for a purchase price of $155,000, prior to net working capital and net debt adjustments. On November 5, 2021, the transaction closed and the Company acquired Avalex. Based in Gulf Breeze, Florida, Avalex is a provider of mission-critical avionics, including rugged displays, integrated communications management systems, digital video recorders and warning systems. The Company funded the acquisition with the Revolver. On March 17, 2022, the Company and former owner of Avalex agreed to post closing adjustments totaling $151, which increased the Company's net purchase price.
The following table presents the net purchase price and the fair values of the assets and liabilities of Avalex on a preliminary basis:

The amounts above represent the preliminary fair value estimates as of September 30, 2022 and are subject to subsequent adjustment as the Company obtains additional information during the measurement period and finalizes its fair value estimates. The preliminary identifiable intangible asset estimate includes customer relationships of $41,880 with a useful life of 9 years, completed technology of $14,430 with a useful life of 7 years and backlog of $5,050 with a useful life of one year. Any subsequent adjustments to these fair value estimates occurring during the measurement period will result in an adjustment to goodwill.
The estimated goodwill of $81,709 largely reflects the potential synergies and expansion of the Company’s offerings across product lines and markets complementary to the Company’s existing products and markets. The goodwill from this acquisition is reported in the Processing reporting unit. The Company is amortizing the amount over 15 years for tax purposes. As of September 30, 2022, the Company had $78,717 of goodwill deductible for tax purposes.

D.Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 Fair Value Measurements
 September 30, 2022Level 1Level 2Level 3
Assets:
Interest rate swap$69 $ $69 $ 
Total$69 $ $69 $ 
The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, including money market funds, restricted cash, accounts receivable and payable, contract assets and liabilities and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities. The Company determined the carrying value of long-term debt approximated fair value due to variable interest rates charged on the borrowings, which reprice frequently. During the first quarter ended September 30, 2022, the Company entered into an interest rate hedging agreement (the “Swap”). Refer to Note O for further information regarding the Swap. The fair value of the Swap is estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis based on the contractual terms of the derivative, leveraging observable inputs other than quoted prices, such as interest rates. As of September 30, 2022 the fair value of the Swap was an asset of $69 and is included within other non-current assets in the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets.
E. Inventory
Inventory is stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or net realizable value, and consists of materials, labor and overhead. On a quarterly basis, the Company uses consistent methodologies to evaluate inventory for net realizable value. Once an item is written down, the value becomes the new inventory cost basis. The Company reduces the value of inventory for excess and obsolete inventory, consisting of on-hand inventory in excess of estimated usage. The excess and obsolete inventory evaluation is based upon assumptions about future demand, historical usage, product mix and possible alternative uses. Inventory was comprised of the following:
As of
September 30, 2022July 1, 2022
Raw materials$189,139 $178,410 
Work in process67,696 64,287 
Finished goods30,743 27,642 
Total$287,578 $270,339 
F.Goodwill
In accordance with FASB ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (“ASC 350”), the Company determines its reporting units based upon whether discrete financial information is available, if management regularly reviews the operating results of the component, the nature of the products offered to customers and the market characteristics of each reporting unit. A reporting unit is considered to be an operating segment or one level below an operating segment also known as a component. Component level financial information is reviewed by management across two divisions: Processing and Microelectronics. Accordingly, these were determined to be the Company's reporting units.
The following table sets forth the changes in the carrying amount of goodwill for the first quarter ended September 30, 2022:
Total
Balance at July 1, 2022$937,880

Balance at September 30, 2022$937,884 
The Company performs its annual goodwill impairment test in the fourth quarter of each fiscal year.

G.Restructuring
During the first quarter ended September 30, 2022, the Company incurred $1,508 of restructuring and other charges. The Company incurs restructuring and other charges in connection with management's decision 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.
Consistent with the Company's definition of restructuring and other charges, 1MPACT is an organizational redesign program initiated on the heels of a series of acquisitions since 2014 rather than a single, discrete acquisition. Since its inception, the Company has selectively engaged with leading consultants to accelerate solution design and implementation for the highest value workstreams. These costs are associated with this discrete transformation initiative and are non-routine and may not be indicative of ongoing results.
Restructuring and other charges primarily related to 1MPACT including $1,304 of third-party consulting costs, as well as $204 of severance costs.
All of the restructuring and other charges are classified as Operating expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss and any remaining severance obligations are expected to be paid within the next twelve months. The restructuring liability is classified as Accrued expenses in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The following table presents the detail of charges included in the Company’s liability for restructuring and other charges:
Severance & Related
Balance at July 1, 2022$4,722 
Restructuring charges204 
Cash paid(3,853)
Balance at September 30, 2022$1,073 
H.Income Taxes
The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $1,022 and $441 on a loss before income taxes of $15,357 and $7,581 for the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, respectively.
During the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, the Company recognized a discrete tax provision of $1,611 and $715 related to stock compensation shortfalls.
The effective tax rate for the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021 differed from the Federal statutory rate primarily due to Federal and state research and development credits, non-deductible compensation, stock compensation shortfalls and state taxes.
During the first quarter ended September 30, 2022, the Company released $521 of reserves for unrecognized tax positions as a result of an income tax audit.
On August 16, 2022, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 into law which contained provisions that include a 15% corporate minimum tax effective for the Company in fiscal 2024 and a 1% excise tax on stock buybacks effective January 1, 2023. The Company expects the impact of these provisions to be immaterial.
I.Debt
REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITY
On February 28, 2022, the Company amended the Revolver to increase and extend the borrowing capacity to a $1,100,000, 5-year revolving credit line, with the maturity extended to February 28, 2027. As of September 30, 2022, the Company's outstanding balance of unamortized deferred financing costs was $4,229, which is being amortized to Other expense, net in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss on a straight line basis over the term of the Revolver.
As of September 30, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all covenants and conditions under the Revolver and there were outstanding borrowings of $511,500 against the Revolver, resulting in interest expense of $4,547 for the first quarter ended September 30, 2022. There were outstanding letters of credit of $963 as of September 30, 2022.

J.Employee Benefit Plan
PENSION PLAN
The Company maintains a defined benefit pension plan (the “Plan”) for its Swiss employees, which is administered by an independent pension fund. The Plan is mandated by Swiss law and meets the criteria for a defined benefit plan under ASC 715, Compensation—Retirement Benefits (“ASC 715”), because participants of the Plan are entitled to a defined rate of return on contributions made. The independent pension fund is a multi-employer plan with unrestricted joint liability for all participating companies for which the Plan’s overfunding or underfunding is allocated to each participating company based on an allocation key determined by the Plan.
The Company recognizes a net asset or liability for the Plan equal to the difference between the projected benefit obligation of the Plan and the fair value of the Plan’s assets as required by ASC 715. The funded status may vary from year to year due to changes in the fair value of the Plan’s assets and variations on the underlying assumptions of the projected benefit obligation of the Plan. The Plan's funded status at September 30, 2022 was a net liability of $4,476, which is recorded in Other non-current liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The Company recorded a net gain of $48 in AOCL during the first quarter ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021. The Company recognized net periodic benefit costs of $221 and $269 associated with the Plan for the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, respectively. The Company's total expected employer contributions to the Plan during fiscal 2023 are $1,093.
401(k) Plan
The Company maintains a qualified 401(k) plan (the “401(k) Plan”) for its U.S. employees. Effective in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company increased the rate of its matching contributions from 3% to 6% of participants' eligible annual compensation and changed the form of these contributions from cash to Company stock. The Company may also make optional contributions to the plan for any plan year at its discretion. The Company had $443 of capitalized stock-based 401(k) matching compensation expense on the Consolidated Balance Sheet for the period ended September 30, 2022. Stock-based 401(k) matching compensation cost is measured based on the value of the matching amount and is recognized as expense as incurred. During the first quarter ended September 30, 2022, the Company recognized share-based matching contributions related to the 401(k) plan of $3,680 as compared to $2,111 of cash match during the first quarter ended October 1, 2021.

K.     Shareholders' Equity
STOCKHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN
On December 27, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a dividend of one preferred share purchase right (a “Right”), payable on January 10, 2022, for each outstanding share of common stock par value $0.01 per share to the stockholders of record on that date. Each Right entitles the registered holder to purchase from the Company a unit of Series A Junior Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company at a designated price per unit, subject to adjustment. The Rights will initially trade with, and will be inseparable from, the shares of common stock.
On June 24, 2022, the Company amended the Rights Agreement, dated as of December 27, 2021, to increase the ownership threshold for a person to be an “Acquiring Person” (as defined in the Rights Agreement) from 7.5% of common stock to 10% of common stock (10% of common stock to 20% of common stock in the case of a passive institutional investor).
Additional details about the Rights Agreement are contained in the Current Reports on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the SEC on December 29, 2021 and June 24, 2022.
On October 26, 2022 the Stockholder Rights Plan expired.

L.Stock-Based Compensation
STOCK INCENTIVE PLANS
At September 30, 2022, the aggregate number of shares authorized for issuance under the Company’s Amended and Restated 2018 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”) is 7,862 shares, including 3,000 shares approved by the Company's shareholders on October 28, 2020 and 2,000 shares approved for future grant under the 2018 Plan by the Company's shareholders on October 26, 2022. The 2018 Plan shares available for issuance also include 948 shares rolled into the 2018 Plan that were available for future grant under the Company’s 2005 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended and restated (the “2005 Plan”). The 2018 Plan replaced the 2005 Plan. The shares authorized for issuance under the 2018 Plan will continue to be increased by any future cancellations, forfeitures or terminations (other than by exercise) of awards under the 2005 Plan. The foregoing does not affect any outstanding awards under the 2005 Plan, which remain in full force and effect in accordance with their terms. The 2018 Plan provides for the grant of non-qualified and incentive stock options, restricted stock, stock appreciation rights and deferred stock awards to employees and non-employees. Stock options must be granted with an exercise price of not less than 100% of the fair value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant and the options generally have a term of seven years. There were 281 available shares for future grant under the 2018 Plan at September 30, 2022.
As part of the Company's ongoing annual equity grant program for employees, the Company grants performance-based restricted stock awards to certain executives and employees pursuant to the 2018 Plan. Performance awards vest based on the requisite service period subject to the achievement of specific financial performance targets. Based on the performance targets, some of these awards require graded vesting which results in more rapid expense recognition compared to traditional time-based vesting over the same vesting period. The Company monitors the probability of achieving the performance targets on a quarterly basis and may adjust periodic stock compensation expense accordingly based on its determination of the likelihood for reaching targets. The performance targets generally include the achievement of internal performance targets in relation to a peer group of companies.
EMPLOYEE STOCK PURCHASE PLAN
At September 30, 2022, the aggregate number of shares authorized for issuance under the Company’s 1997 Employee Stock Purchase Plan, as amended and restated (“ESPP”), is 2,300 shares, including 500 shares approved by the Company's shareholders on October 28, 2020. Under the ESPP, rights are granted to purchase shares of common stock at 85% of the lesser of the market value of such shares at either the beginning or the end of each six-month offering period. The ESPP permits employees to purchase common stock through payroll deductions, which may not exceed 10% of an employee’s compensation as defined in the ESPP. There were no shares issued under the ESPP during the first quarters ended September 30, 2022 and October 1, 2021, respectively. Shares available for future purchase under the ESPP totaled 313 at September 30, 2022.

STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION EXPENSE
The Company recognizes expense for its share-based payment plans in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”). The Company had $1,104 and $1,229 of capitalized stock-based compensation expense on the Consolidated Balance Sheets for the periods ended September 30, 2022 and July 1, 2022, respectively. Under the fair value recognition provisions of ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the value of the award and is recognized as expense over the service period, net of estimated forfeitures.

M.Operating Segment, Geographic Information and Significant Customers
Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise evaluated regularly by the Company's chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) in deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance. During the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company announced its 1MPACT value creation initiative to promote scale as the organization continues to grow. The Company evaluated this internal reorganization under FASB ASC 280, Segment Reporting (“ASC 280”) to determine whether this change has impacted the Company's single operating and reportable segment. The Company concluded this change had no effect given the CODM continues to evaluate and manage the Company on the basis of one operating and reportable segment. The Company utilized the management approach for determining its operating segment in accordance with ASC 280.
The geographic distribution of the Company’s revenues as determined by country in which the Company's legal subsidiary is domiciled is summarized as follows:

The Company offers a broad family of products designed to meet the full range of requirements in compute-intensive, signal processing, image processing and command and control applications. To maintain a competitive advantage, the Company seeks to leverage technology investments across multiple product lines and product solutions.
The Company’s products are typically compute-intensive and require extremely high bandwidth and high throughput. These systems often must also meet significant SWaP constraints for use in aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, ships and other platforms and be ruggedized for use in harsh environments. The Company's products transform the massive streams of digital data created in these applications into usable information in real time. The systems can scale from a few processors to thousands of processors.
In recent years, the Company completed a series of acquisitions that changed its technological capabilities, applications and end markets. As these acquisitions and changes occurred, the Company's proportion of revenue derived from the sale of components in different technological areas, and modules, sub-assemblies and integrated subsystems which combine technologies into more complex diverse products has shifted. The following tables present revenue consistent with the Company's strategy of expanding its technological capabilities and program content. As additional information related to the Company’s products by end user, application, product grouping and/or platform is attained, the categorization of these products can vary over time. When this occurs, the Company reclassifies revenue by end user, application, product grouping and/or platform for prior periods. Such reclassifications typically do not materially change the underlying trends of results within each revenue category.
The following table presents the Company's net revenue by end user for the periods presented:

N.Commitments and Contingencies
LEGAL CLAIMS
The Company is subject to litigation, claims, investigations and audits arising from time to time in the ordinary course of business. Although legal proceedings are inherently unpredictable, the Company believes that it has valid defenses with respect to any matters currently pending against the Company and intends to defend itself vigorously. The outcome of these matters, individually and in the aggregate, is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's cash flows, results of operations, or financial position.
In June 2021, Embedded Reps of America, LLC (“ERA”), a former sales representative, and James Mazzola, a principal of ERA, filed for binding arbitration related to the termination of ERA’s sales representative agreement raising multiple claims that aggregate to approximately $9,000 in direct damages, with treble damages requested on a number of those claims. ERA was a sales representative of Themis Computer (“Themis”) when Themis was acquired by Mercury. The sales representative agreement provided for termination by either party upon 30 days written notice with ERA entitled to commissions for orders obtained by ERA with product shipment occurring prior to termination. The Company responded to the complaint in July 2021, and an arbitration proceeding was scheduled for September 2022. Final motions in the arbitration proceeding were submitted in late October 2022 and oral arguments are scheduled for early November 2022. The Company anticipates that the arbitrator will make a ruling within 30 to 60 days of the oral arguments. The Company believes the claims in the complaint are without merit and intends to continue to defend itself vigorously.
In December 2021, counsel for National Technical Systems, Inc. (“NTS”) sent the Company an environmental demand letter pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 21E, Section 4A, and CERCLA 42 U.S.C. Section 9601, related to a site that NTS formerly owned at 533 Main Street, Acton, Massachusetts. NTS received a Notice of Responsibility from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (“MassDEP”) alleging trichloroethene, freon and 1,4-dioxane contamination in the groundwater emanating from NTS’s former site. NTS alleges in its demand letter that the operations of a predecessor company to Mercury that was acquired in the Company’s acquisition of the Microsemi carve-out business that once owned and operated a facility at 531 Main Street, Acton, Massachusetts contributed to the groundwater contamination. NTS is seeking payment by the Company of NTS’s costs for any required environmental remediation. In April 2022, the Company engaged in a meet and confer session with NTS pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 21E, Section 4A to discuss the status of the environmental review performed by NTS and its licensed site professional. In addition, in November 2021, the Company responded to a request for information from MassDEP regarding the detection of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroakyl substances) in the Acton, Massachusetts Water District’s Conant public water supply wells near the former facility at 531 Main Street, Acton, Massachusetts at a level above the standard that MassDEP published for PFAS in October 2020. It is too early to determine what responsibility, if any, the Company may have for these matters.
20


INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS
The Company’s standard product sales and license agreements entered into in the ordinary course of business typically contain an indemnification provision pursuant to which the Company indemnifies, holds harmless, and agrees to reimburse the indemnified party for losses suffered or incurred by the indemnified party in connection with any patent, copyright or other intellectual property infringement claim by any third-party with respect to the Company’s products. Such provisions generally survive termination or expiration of the agreements. The potential amount of future payments the Company could be required to make under these indemnification provisions is, in some instances, unlimited.
PURCHASE COMMITMENTS
As of September 30, 2022, the Company has entered into non-cancelable purchase commitments for certain inventory components and services used in its normal operations. The purchase commitments covered by these agreements are for less than one year and aggregate to $150,032.
OTHER
As part of the Company's strategy for growth, the Company continues to explore acquisitions or strategic alliances. The associated acquisition costs incurred in the form of professional fees and services may be material to the future periods in which they occur, regardless of whether the acquisition is ultimately completed.
The Company may elect from time to time to purchase and subsequently retire shares of common stock in order to settle employees’ tax liabilities associated with vesting of a restricted stock award or exercise of stock options. These transactions would be treated as a use of cash in financing activities in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
O.Derivatives
The Company utilizes interest rate derivatives to mitigate interest rate exposure with respect to its financing arrangements. On September 7, 2022, the Company entered into an interest rate Swap (the “initial Swap”) with JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“JPMorgan”) for a notional amount of $300,000 in order to fix the interest rate associated with a portion of the total $511,500 existing borrowings on the Revolver. The initial Swap agreement was designated and qualified for hedge accounting treatment as a cash flow hedge. The initial Swap matures on February 28, 2027, coterminous with the maturity of the Revolver. The initial Swap established a fixed interest rate on the first $300,000 of the Company's outstanding borrowings against the Revolver obligation at 3.25%.
On September 29, 2022, the Company terminated the initial Swap. At the time of termination, the fair value of the initial Swap was an asset of $5,995. The Company received the cash settlement of $5,995 and these proceeds are classified within Operating Activities of the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
Following the termination of the initial Swap the Company entered a new Swap agreement (“the Swap”) on September 29, 2022 with JPMorgan. The Swap fixes $300,000 of the total $511,500 existing borrowings of outstanding borrowings under the Revolver at a rate of 3.79%. As of September 30, 2022, the fair value of the hedge was an asset of $69 and is included within Other non-current assets in the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The market risk associated with the Company’s derivative instrument is the result of interest rate movements that are expected to offset the market risk of the underlying arrangement. The counterparty to the Swap is JPMorgan. Based on the credit ratings of the Company’s counterparty as of September 30, 2022, nonperformance is not perceived to be a material risk. Furthermore, none of the Company’s derivatives are subject to collateral or other security arrangements and none contain provisions that are dependent on the Company’s credit ratings from any credit rating agency. While the contract or notional amounts of derivative financial instruments provide one measure of the volume of these transactions, they do not represent the amount of the Company’s exposure to credit risk. The amounts potentially subject to credit risk (arising from the possible inability of the counterparty to meet the terms of their contracts) are generally limited to the amounts, if any, by which the counterparty obligations under the contracts exceed the obligations of the Company to the counterparty. As a result of the above considerations, the Company does not consider the risk of counterparty default to be significant.
P.Subsequent Events
The Company has evaluated subsequent events from the date of the Consolidated Balance Sheet through the date the consolidated financial statements were issued and noted no items requiring adjustment of the financial statements or additional disclosures.

technology for aerospace and defense solutions. From chip-scale to system scale and from data, including radio frequency (“RF”) to digital to decision, we make mission-critical technologies safe, secure, affordable and relevant for our customers.
Our capabilities, technology, people and R&D investment strategy combine to differentiate us in our industry. We maintain our technological edge by investing in critical capabilities and intellectual property (“IP” or “building blocks”) in processing, leveraging open standards and open architectures to adapt quickly those building blocks into solutions for highly data-intensive applications, including emerging needs in areas such as artificial intelligence (“AI”).
Our mission critical solutions are deployed by our customers for a variety of applications including command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (“C4ISR”), electronic intelligence, mission computing avionics, electro-optical/infrared (“EO/IR”), electronic warfare, weapons and missile defense, hypersonics and radar.
Since we conduct much of our business with our defense customers via commercial items, requests by customers are a primary driver of revenue fluctuations from quarter to quarter. Customers specify delivery date requirements that coincide with their need for our products. Because these customers may use our products in connection with a variety of defense programs or other projects of different sizes and durations, a customer’s orders for one quarter generally do not indicate a trend for future orders by that customer. Additionally, order patterns do not necessarily correlate amongst customers and, therefore, we generally cannot identify sequential quarterly trends.
As of September 30, 2022, we had 2,424 employees. We employ hardware and software architects and design engineers, primarily engaged in engineering and research and product development activities to achieve our objectives to fully capitalize upon and maintain our technological leads in the high-performance, real-time sensor processing industry and in mission computing, platform management and other safety-critical applications. Our talent attraction, engagement and retention is critical to execute on our long-term strategy. We invest in our culture and values to drive employee engagement that turns ideas into action, delivering trusted and secure solutions at the speed of innovation. We believe that our success depends on our ability to embrace diversity company-wide and realize the benefits of a diverse workforce that includes a greater variety of solutions to problems, a broader collection of skills and experiences and an array of viewpoints to consider. We are strongly focused on providing an inclusive environment that respects the diversity of the world. We believe that the workforce required to grow our business and deliver creative solutions must be rich in diversity of thought, experience and culture. Our diversity and inclusion initiatives focus on building and maintaining the talent that will create cohesive and collaborative teams that drive innovation. We believe that these values will help our employees realize their full potentials at work to provide Innovation That Matters®.
Our consolidated revenues, acquired revenues, net loss, diluted net loss per share, adjusted earnings per share (“adjusted EPS”), and adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter ended September 30, 2022 were $227.6 million, $11.8 million, $(14.3) million, $(0.26), $0.24, and $31.2 million, respectively. See the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section for a reconciliation to our most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
