Highlights include: 

Exceeds estimates for Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, EPS and Adjusted EPS
Revenue increases 6% over prior year
Adjusted EBITDA of $12.6 million, up 18% year-over-year
Guidance raised for year

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Jan. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) (www.mrcy.com), reported operating results for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, ended December 31, 2015.

Management Comments
“Our second fiscal quarter was once again marked by very strong execution,” commented Mark Aslett, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Thanks to solid gross margins driven by revenue mix, and continued cost discipline, our 6% increase in revenue resulted in an 18% increase in adjusted EBITDA year-over-year.  With the delivery of a strong first half and a recently approved defense budget, we remain on track to achieve our objectives for the year while we continue investing in the business to drive future growth. As a result, we are comfortable raising our guidance for the balance of the year,” Aslett concluded.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results 
Second quarter fiscal 2016 revenues were $60.4 million, an increase of $3.3 million, or 6%, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015. GAAP income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $4.8 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to GAAP income from continuing operations of $2.9 million, or $0.09 per share, for the prior year’s second quarter.  Adjusted earnings per share (“adjusted EPS”) was $0.23 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, compared to $0.20 per share in the second quarter fiscal 2015. All per share information is presented on a fully diluted basis.

Second quarter fiscal 2016 adjusted EBITDA was $12.6 million, an increase of 18% from the second quarter of fiscal 2015. 

Total GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $4.8 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to total GAAP net income of $0.3 million, or $0.01 per share, for the prior year’s second quarter.  The second quarter of fiscal 2015 included a loss of ($2.6) million, or ($0.08) per share, from discontinued operations.

Cash flows from operating activities in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were a net inflow of $11.9 million, compared to a net inflow of $8.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015.  Free cash flow, defined as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures, was a net inflow of $10.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016, compared to a net inflow of $7.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. 

The Company’s reported financial results are from continuing operations for all periods referenced in this release unless otherwise noted.  

Bookings and Backlog
Bookings for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were $45.2 million, yielding a book-to-bill of 0.75 for the quarter. Mercury’s total backlog at December 31, 2015 was $204.8 million, an increase of $12.7 million from a year ago.  Of the December 31, 2015 total backlog, $151.6 million represents orders expected to be shipped over the next 12 months. 

Revenues by Reporting Segment
Mercury Commercial Electronics (MCE) — Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 from MCE were $53.0 million, representing an increase of $1.2 million, or 2.3%, from the second quarter of fiscal 2015.  The increase in revenues compared to last year’s second quarter related primarily to higher SEWIP and DEWS program revenues. 

Mercury Defense Systems (MDS) — Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 from MDS were $7.9 million, an increase of $3.2 million, or 67%, from the second quarter of fiscal 2015, primarily due to strength in an airborne surveillance program.

The revenues by reporting segment are adjusted for ($0.5) million and $0.5 million of revenues included in our consolidated results in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015, respectively.  This revenue is attributable to development programs where the revenue is recognized in both segments under contract accounting, and reflects the reconciliation to our consolidated results.

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 2016. 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 2016, revenues are currently forecasted to be in the range of $63 million to $67 million.  Adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.19 to $0.22 per share, and includes approximately $1.7 million of amortization of intangible assets, $2.3 million of stock-based compensation expense and an effective tax rate of approximately 36%. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 is expected to be in the range of $11.3 million to $12.6 million.

Revenues for all of fiscal 2016 are currently expected to grow between 6% and 8%, while adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2016 is expected to increase by 9% to 13% year-over-year based on revenue mix expectations in the second half of the year.

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 from continuing operations, adjusted earnings per share “adjusted EPS”, and free cash flow, which are non-GAAP financial measures.  Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income from continuing operations, 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 continuing operations 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 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.  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 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 non-interest financing, bank and other fees associated with obtaining and maintaining its financing 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 expenses. The Company periodically 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.

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 from continuing operations 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 continuing operations results and trends and allows for comparability with our peer company index and industry. 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 from continuing operations as income from continuing operations 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 expenses, stock-based compensation expense, and the tax impact of those items. Adjusted EPS expresses adjusted income from continuing operations on a per share basis using weighted average diluted shares outstanding.
