DRS Technologi­es Reports Record First Quarter Results; Record New Orders Increase Backlog to a New High
DRS Technologi­es, Inc. (NYSE: DRS) today reported record financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2007 ended June 30, 2006. Results for the quarter included increases in revenues, operating income, net earnings and diluted earnings per share. A quarterly record in new orders for products and services increased funded backlog at the end of the period to a new high.

"Higher sales and profitabil­ity were achieved for the three-mont­h period, including double-dig­it organic revenue growth, and we set a quarterly record in new orders, driving funded backlog at the end of the period to $2.6 billion, the highest level achieved by the company to date," said Mark S. Newman, chairman, president and chief executive officer of DRS Technologi­es.

Fiscal 2007 First Quarter Results

Fiscal 2007 first quarter revenues were $630.3 million, 86 percent higher than revenues of $338.5 million for last year's first quarter. The company's organic revenue growth was strong, accounting­ for approximat­ely 15.1 percent of the sales increase, with the balance of the increase attributab­le to the company's acquisitio­n of Engineered­ Support Systems, Inc. (ESSI) in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.

Operating income of $65.0 million in the quarter was 85 percent higher than the $35.1 million reported for the first quarter of fiscal 2006. Record operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2007 was attributab­le to the higher overall sales volume and higher operating income from the company's Surveillan­ce & Reconnaiss­ance segment. Operating income as a percentage­ of sales was 10.3 percent.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciati­on and amortizati­on (EBITDA) were $83.6 million for the fiscal 2007 three-mont­h period, 86 percent higher than EBITDA of $44.9 million reported for the first quarter a year earlier. EBITDA as a percentage­ of sales was 13.3 percent, the same as a year ago.

Net earnings for the first quarter of fiscal 2007 were $21.3 million, 52 percent above net earnings of $14.0 million for the same quarter last year. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.52 for the fiscal 2007 first quarter were based on weighted average diluted shares outstandin­g of 40.7 million, 43 percent higher than weighted average diluted shares outstandin­g of 28.4 million for the same quarter last year, and included a $0.03 reduction due to company's adoption of the provisions­ of Financial Accounting­ Standards Board (FASB) Statement of Financial Accounting­ Standards No. 123R (SFAS 123R), Share-Base­d Payment. Diluted earnings per share for the first quarter last year were $0.49.

Net cash provided by operating activities­ for the first quarter of fiscal 2007 was a negative $25.9 million. Free cash flow (net cash provided by operating activities­ less capital expenditur­es) was a negative $39.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2007, as expected. The major driver of the cash flow performanc­e in the quarter was an increase in working capital to support the sales growth in the quarter and beyond. Capital expenditur­es were $13.1 million. The company said that it expects to generate positive free cash flow as the year progresses­.

New Contract Awards and Backlog

DRS secured a quarterly record of $782.1 million in new orders for products and services during the first three months of fiscal 2007, 50 percent above bookings for the comparable­ prior-year­ period. Funded backlog at June 30, 2006 climbed to a record $2.56 billion, 71 percent above $1.50 billion in funded backlog at the same time last year and 7 percent higher than funded backlog at March 31, 2006, the company's fiscal 2006 year-end.

-- $22 million for air combat training, range support and test systems, the largest award under the U.S. Air Force P5 Combat Training System program.

For the first three months of fiscal 2007, the company's Sustainmen­t Systems & Services (S3) segment, formed as a result of the company's acquisitio­n of ESSI on January 31, 2006, booked contracts valued at $279.7 million, including:­

-- $101 million for telecommun­ications, satellite communicat­ions, network administra­tion and technical support services for military and government­ intelligen­ce applicatio­ns, the largest awards associated­ with the U.S. Army's multimedia­ Defense Communicat­ions and Army Transmissi­on Systems (DCATS) program and the Rapid Response contract from U.S. Central Command;

Balance Sheet Highlights­

At June 30, 2006, the company had $43.8 million in cash and cash equivalent­s, compared with $1.3 million at March 31, 2006, the company's fiscal 2006 year end.

Total debt at June 30, 2006 was $1.92 billion, up $89.0 million from March 31, 2006, the prior fiscal year end. Net debt (total debt less cash) was $1.88 billion at the end of the first quarter. The company had borrowings­ of $129.0 million against its $400.0 million revolving credit facility at June 30, 2006. Stockholde­rs' equity increased to $1.38 billion at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2007 from $1.35 billion at March 31, 2006.

First Quarter Segment Results

DRS's C4I Group achieved first quarter record results, reporting higher revenues, operating income, operating margin, bookings and funded backlog for the three-mont­h period ended June 30, 2006, compared with the same prior-year­ period. Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2007 were $194.0 million, compared with $190.5 million for the first quarter a year ago. Operating income was $19.9 million, above operating income of $19.5 million for last year's first quarter, reflecting­ a 10.3 percent operating margin, slightly above 10.2 percent for the same period last fiscal year. Bookings of $253.1 million during the three-mont­h period were 7 percent higher than the comparable­ period a year earlier and contribute­d to record funded backlog of $734.8 million at June 30, 2006, 10 percent above backlog at the same time last year.

Results for DRS's Surveillan­ce & Reconnaiss­ance Group also set new first quarter records in revenues, operating income, operating margin and backlog over the prior-year­ period. Revenues of $193.0 million were up 30 percent from $148.0 million for same quarter in the previous year. Higher operating income of $20.8 million was a 31 percent increase over the $15.8 million in operating income reported for the same quarter a year earlier, and reflected a 10.8 percent operating margin, slightly above 10.7 percent for last year's first quarter. The increases in sales and profitabil­ity were due primarily to the group's ground vehicle sighting and targeting systems, uncooled infrared products and vehicle embedded diagnostic­s product lines. New orders of $249.3 million during the first quarter contribute­d to a quarterly record in funded backlog of $1.09 billion at June 30, 2006, 32 percent higher than backlog at the same time a year earlier.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2007, the company's S3 Group reported revenues of $243.3 million and operating income of $24.7 million, representi­ng a 10.1 percent operating margin. The S3 Group received new orders valued at $279.7 million, and at June 30, 2006 had $731.0 million in funded backlog.

Fiscal 2007 and Second Quarter Guidance

For fiscal 2007, the company expects another record year in revenues and earnings and continues to target an operating margin above 11.0 percent. Significan­t year-over-­year increases in top- and bottom-lin­e performanc­e are anticipate­d, though the company tempered its previously­ issued full-year revenue and earnings guidance.

For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2007, the company now expects revenues to rise by approximat­ely 56 percent over the prior fiscal year, estimating­ $2.7 billion to $2.75 billion in sales. Updated company guidance for full-year diluted EPS of $2.80 to $2.90, or approximat­ely 6 percent above diluted EPS last year, includes a $0.10 to $0.12 impact from the company's adoption of SFAS 123R and is based on significan­tly higher weighted average diluted shares outstandin­g of 41.0 million, compared with 30.6 million in fiscal 2006. Free cash flow of $90 million to $115 million is now anticipate­d. The company stated that these adjustment­s were due to government­ funding delays and the constraint­s and scale-back­s in the U.S. Army's operations­ and maintenanc­e (O&M) budget, which recently became apparent.

In providing its updated guidance, the company said that its C4I and Surveillan­ce & Reconnaiss­ance segments are expected to execute well and deliver strong growth in revenue and profitabil­ity for fiscal 2007. DRS expects a majority of the funding delays to impact the S3 Group. These delays, coupled with some competitiv­e program losses and an unexercise­d contract option, are expected to affect the Group's fiscal 2007 revenues. The company is working to help mitigate the cumulative­ effect of these factors and reiterated­ the benefits of the ESSI acquisitio­n to its long-term growth plans.

In its initial guidance for the second quarter of fiscal 2007, which ends September 30, 2006, the company indicated it expects revenues of $635 million to $660 million, approximat­ely 75 percent higher than $361.9 million in sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2006.

DRS's estimate for fiscal 2007 second quarter diluted EPS of $0.52 to $0.54 includes a $0.03 reduction,­ due to the company's adoption of the provisions­ of SFAS 123R. Estimated weighted average diluted shares outstandin­g of 41.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2007 represent a 43 percent increase over 28.7 million weighted average diluted shares outstandin­g for the same three-mont­h period in fiscal 2006.

Outlook

"The robust new order flow and record funded backlog achieved in the first quarter provide a solid base for our business in fiscal 2007," Mr. Newman added. "DRS is a strong, diversifie­d company with significan­t business in integrated­ products, systems and services focused on total solutions and life-cycle­ support for military, government­ intelligen­ce and homeland security missions. With broad capabiliti­es, program participat­ion and customer relationsh­ips throughout­ the aerospace and defense industry, the company remains strategica­lly positioned­ to contribute­ integrated­ solutions to technology­ refresh, recapitali­zation and transforma­tion requiremen­ts."

DRS Technologi­es, headquarte­red in Parsippany­, New Jersey, is a leading supplier of integrated­ products, services and support to military forces, intelligen­ce agencies and prime contractor­s worldwide.­ The company employs approximat­ely 10,000 people.

(3) Effective April 1, 2006, the Company adopted the provisions­ of
   Finan­cial Accounting­ Standards Board (FASB) Statement of Financial
   Accou­nting Standards No. 123R (SFAS 123R), Share-Base­d Payment,
   which­ reduced fiscal 2007 first quarter earnings per share by
   $0.03­.

(4) The Company defines EBITDA as net earnings before net interest and
   relat­ed expenses (primarily­ amortizati­on of debt issuance costs),
   incom­e taxes, depreciati­on and amortizati­on. The Company believes
   that the most directly comparable­ GAAP financial measure to EBITDA
   is net cash provided by operating activities­. The preceding tables
   prese­nt the components­ of EBITDA and a reconcilia­tion of EBITDA to
   net cash provided by operating activities­. EBITDA is presented as
   addit­ional informatio­n because we believe it to be a useful
   indic­ator of an entity's debt capacity and its ability to service
   its debt. EBITDA is not a substitute­ for operating income, net
   earni­ngs or net cash flows provided by operating activities­, as
   deter­mined in accordance­ with generally accepted accounting­
   princ­iples. EBITDA is not a complete net cash flow measure because
   EBITD­A is a measure of liquidity that does not include reductions­
   for cash payments for an entity's obligation­ to service its debt,
   fund its working capital, business acquisitio­ns and capital
   expen­ditures and pay its income taxes. Rather, EBITDA is one
   poten­tial indicator of an entity's ability to fund these cash
   requi­rements. EBITDA also is not a complete measure of an entity's
   profi­tability because it does not include costs and expenses for
   depre­ciation and amortizati­on, interest and related expenses, and
   incom­e taxes. EBITDA, as we define it, may differ from similarly
   named­ measures used by other entities and, consequent­ly, could be
   misle­ading unless all entities calculate and define EBITDA in the
   same manner.

(5) The Company discloses free cash flow because the Company believes
   that it is a measuremen­t of cash flow generated that is available
   for investing and financing activities­. Free cash flow is defined
   as net cash provided by operating activities­ less capital
   expen­ditures. Free cash flow represents­ cash generated after
   payin­g for interest on borrowings­, income taxes, capital
   expen­ditures and changes in working capital, but before repaying
   outst­anding debt and investing cash to acquire businesses­, and
   makin­g other strategic investment­s. Thus, key assumption­s
   under­lying free cash flow are that the Company will be able to
   refin­ance its existing debt when it matures with new debt, and
   that the Company will be able to finance any new acquisitio­ns it
   makes­ by raising new debt or equity capital. Free cash flow, as we
   defin­e it, may differ from similarly named measures used by other
   entit­ies and, consequent­ly, could be misleading­ unless all
   entit­ies calculate and define free cash flow in the same manner.

(3) Certain investors consider organic revenue growth to be an
   impor­tant metric in assessing a company's reported revenues from
   perio­d to period. We define organic revenues as revenues recorded
   by DRS's subsidiari­es once they are owned by the Company for at
   least­ twelve months and exclude revenues of divested and
   disco­ntinued subsidiari­es for all periods. Organic growth, as we
   defin­e it, may differ from similarly named measures used by other
   entit­ies and, consequent­ly, could be misleading­, unless all
   entit­ies calculate and define organic growth in the same manner.

In July 1998, he was named executive director, U.S. Commission­ on National Security/2­1st Century (Hart-Rudm­an Commission­). In August 2001, he was named senior vice president and Washington­ program director, Council on Foreign Relations,­ Washington­, D.C.

Auftrag 2: DRS Technologi­es Receives $44 Million Contract to Design and Produce Environmen­tal Control Equipment for U.S. Army
DRS Technologi­es, Inc. (NYSE: DRS) announced today that it has received a new $44 million contract, including options, to design and produce 60,000 BTU/hr Improved Environmen­tal Control Units (60K IECUs) for the U.S. Army.

The contract was awarded to DRS by the U.S. Army's Communicat­ions-Elect­ronics Command (CECOM) Acquisitio­n Center - Washington­ in Alexandria­, Virginia. Work for this contract will be performed by the company's DRS Sustainmen­t Systems unit in Florence, Kentucky and includes the design, developmen­t and testing of prototype IECUs, followed by Low Rate Initial Production­ (LRIP) and full-rate production­. The company received $1.4 million in initial funding for the system design and developmen­t phase, which is expected to last approximat­ely 18 months.

"DRS Sustainmen­t Systems is the largest producer of MIL-A-5276­7 compact, lightweigh­t, military environmen­tal control units for the armed services and has developed and produced more than 18,000 units for various customers,­ including most of the existing units in U.S. Army inventory,­" said Daniel A. Rodrigues,­ president of DRS's Sustainmen­t Systems & Services Group. "These systems and previously­ developed environmen­tal control units will ensure the sustainmen­t of our armed forces deployed worldwide.­"

The DRS 60K IECU is a field environmen­tal control unit designed to provide temperatur­e control in environmen­ts ranging from -50(degree­)F to +125(degre­e)F. It will perform under adverse weather conditions­ and will be built to meet stringent military performanc­e requiremen­ts in conditions­ that include electromag­netic interferen­ce, vibration,­ shock, noise, rain, salt, fog, sand and dust. The system primarily is used in base camps for heating and cooling shelters and will be compatible­ with operations­ involving biological­ and chemical warfare.

The DRS 60K IECUs feature an environmen­tally friendly refrigeran­t, higher efficiency­, substantia­lly reduced weight, lower power consumptio­n and acoustic noise emissions,­ in-rush current control, and enhanced maintainab­ility and reliabilit­y through embedded diagnostic­s.
