HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2020 FOURTH QUARTER

Revenue

Revenue was $215.1 million, down 4.0% compared to the same prior year period, due to volume declines in Test & Simulation and Sensors. Both businesses were negatively impacted by COVID-19 due to the closure of customer sites, travel restrictions and delayed customer spending. Test & Simulation revenue decreased primarily due to a decline in volume from softness in our ground vehicles, simulation and materials sectors, coupled with lower service volume. The decline was partially offset by top-line contributions from the acquisition of the R&D entities in Denmark (R&D) of $18.8 million, which was completed early in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020. Sensors revenue declined due to softness in all sectors except our test sector, which included continued U.S. Department of Defense volume growth and a full quarter of revenue from Endevco, which closed during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019. There were no material cancellations of orders or backlog in the fourth quarter.

Orders

Test & Simulation orders during the quarter were $135.2 million, up 16.0% compared to the prior year primarily driven by the addition of wind energy orders from the acquisition of R&D and an increase in service orders as customers sites have resumed more normalized activities. The increase was partially offset by lower orders in our materials and structures sectors and our product rationalization efforts in China.

Sensors orders during the quarter were $80.7 million, down 10.5% compared to the same prior year period primarily driven by a large Department of Defense order in our test sector that did not repeat in fiscal year 2020, as well as lower orders in our industrial sector reflecting the global impact of COVID-19. The decrease was partially offset by growth in our positions sector.

Backlog

Backlog remained strong at $457.6 million, reflecting an increase of 8.9% compared to the prior year. Sequentially, from the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, backlog was up 1.4% driven by the two large Test & Simulation orders totaling $17.0 million, partially offset by overall revenue realized during the fourth quarter outpacing order bookings. Ending backlog for Test & Simulation and Sensors was $385.9 million and $71.7 million, respectively.

Impairment of Assets

Non-cash impairment charges of $291.4 million related to goodwill, long-lived assets and our indefinite-lived intangible asset were recorded in Test & Simulation and Sensors during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020. The impairment charges were the result of a decline in market conditions due to COVID-19, including a sustained decrease in our stock price and the impact to the flight simulation and entertainment markets we serve.

Net Income (Loss) and Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share

Diluted earnings (loss) per share was $(14.56) compared to $0.25 during the prior year on net income (loss) of $(280.7) million and $4.8 million, respectively. The $14.81 per share decrease was primarily driven by a $15.13 per share decrease associated with a non-cash impairment of assets and a decline in gross profit as the result of lower revenue volume in both businesses reflecting the impact of COVID-19. Additionally, net income and diluted earnings per share were negatively impacted by the R&D contingent consideration fair value adjustment, Test & Simulation restructuring expense, higher interest expense from the accretion of contingent consideration and increased acquisition-related expenses due to the R&D acquisition. The decline was partially offset by lower compensation expense reflecting permanent and temporary cost savings from actions taken in fiscal year 2020 and further cost containment measures.

Fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 and 2019 results include $15.52 and $0.12 per share, respectively, of non-recurring costs associated with an impairment of assets, Test & Simulation restructuring actions taken in fiscal year 2020, the R&D contingent consideration fair value adjustment, acquisition-related expenses, E2M and Endevco acquisition inventory fair value adjustments and the impact of the change in weighted average diluted common shares outstanding. R&D was acquired in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, and E2M and Endevco were acquired in the first and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2019, respectively. Adjusting for these items, adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.95 for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 and $0.37 for the same period in the prior year. A reconciliation of adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, to diluted earnings per share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is provided in Exhibit B of this earnings release.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $31.3 million, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, up 5.6% compared to the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by positive contributions from the acquisition of R&D, lower compensation expense reflecting permanent and temporary cost savings measures taken in fiscal year 2020, and further cost containment measures, partially offset by a decline in gross profit from lower revenue in both businesses reflecting the impact of COVID-19. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is provided in Exhibit D of this earnings release.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

During the quarter, our total debt decreased by $10.5 million to $584.6 million as we continue to pay-down our outstanding debt balance. We ended the quarter with $88.9 million of cash on the balance sheet, leading to a net debt balance of $495.7 million. The ratio of interest-bearing debt to Adjusted EBITDA and the ratio of net interest-bearing debt to Adjusted EBITDA remain in full compliance with the debt covenant levels specified in our debt agreements. We have no material debt maturities until July 2023. Subsequent to the end of our fiscal year, we paid an additional $7 million on our outstanding debt, further improving leverage and entered into an agreement to sell our Shanghai, China building with an anticipated gain on sale. We intend to use the proceeds from the sale of our Shanghai facility to further reduce debt and provide further cash flow for operational demands and general corporate purposes.

HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2020 FULL YEAR

Revenue

Revenue was $828.6 million, down 7.2% compared to the prior year, due to a decline in Test & Simulation, partially offset by growth in Sensors. Both businesses were negatively impacted by COVID-19 due to reduced access to our customers, reduced production capacity, temporary closures of customer facilities and delayed spending by our customers. Test & Simulation revenue decreased primarily due to a decline in volume from softness in our ground vehicles and materials sectors, coupled with lower service volume. The decline was partially offset by top-line contributions from the acquisition of R&D of $47.6 million. Sensors revenue increased due to continued U.S. Department of Defense volume growth and a full year of top-line contributions from the Endevco acquisition in our test sector. The increase was partially offset by weakness in the other three sectors. There were no material cancellations of orders or backlog in the fiscal year.

Orders

Test & Simulation orders for the fiscal year were $496.5 million, up 3.9% compared to the prior year, primarily driven by the award of the largest order in MTS history for an advanced seismic simulation system in China, valued at over $70 million, the addition of wind energy orders from the acquisition of R&D and two large orders totaling $17 million secured in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020. This increase was partly offset by lower orders in our ground vehicles and materials sector, along with lower services orders reflecting the global impact of COVID-19.

Sensors orders for the fiscal year were $333.1 million, down 3.3% compared to the prior year, primarily driven by lower orders in our position, industrial and systems sectors reflecting the global impact of COVID-19. The decrease was partially offset by growth in our test sector primarily driven by additional funding associated with the U.S. Department of Defense and the addition of orders from the acquisition of Endevco.

Net Income (Loss) and Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share

Diluted earnings (loss) per share was $(14.16) compared to $2.21 in the prior year on net income (loss) of $(272.1) million and $43.1 million, respectively. The $16.37 per share decrease was primarily driven by a $15.16 per share decrease associated with a non-cash impairment of assets and a gross profit decline in both businesses reflecting the impact of COVID-19. Additionally, net income and diluted earnings per share were negatively impacted by Test & Simulation restructuring expense for actions taken in fiscal year 2020 to reduce operating costs, higher interest expense on increased debt levels, the R&D contingent consideration fair value adjustment and higher acquisition-related expenses due to the R&D and Endevco acquisitions. The decline was partially offset by lower compensation expense reflecting permanent and temporary cost savings measures taken in fiscal year 2020, further cost containment measures and a reduction in the effective tax rate which includes $0.06 of discrete tax benefits in fiscal year 2020.

Fiscal year 2020 and 2019 results included $16.20 and $0.23 per share, respectively, of non-recurring costs associated with an impairment of assets, Test & Simulation restructuring actions taken in fiscal year 2020, the R&D contingent consideration fair value adjustment, acquisition-related expenses, E2M and Endevco acquisition inventory fair value adjustments and the impact of the change in weighted average diluted common shares outstanding. R&D was acquired in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, and E2M and Endevco were acquired in the first and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2019, respectively. Adjusting for these items, adjusted diluted earnings per share was $2.03 for fiscal year 2020 and $2.44 for the prior year. A reconciliation of adjusted diluted earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, to diluted earnings per share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is provided in Exhibit C of this earnings release.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA declined to $121.2 million in fiscal year 2020, down 8.6% compared to the prior year. The decrease was primarily driven by a decline in gross profit from lower revenue in Test & Simulation reflecting the impact of COVID-19 and product mix in Sensors, partially offset by lower compensation expense reflecting permanent and temporary cost savings measures taken in fiscal year 2020, along with further cost containment measures. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is provided in Exhibit D of this earnings release.

RANSOMWARE INCIDENT

In November 2020, we were the victim of a ransomware incident that temporarily impacted our operations. As a result of the incident, certain of our data was encrypted, some of our data was exfiltrated from our systems, and business activities at several of our facilities were temporarily disrupted. As of the date hereof, our investigation indicates that the incident has been contained. We recovered the impacted data from the unauthorized actor, and we are not currently aware of any evidence of the impacted data being publicly released. We continue to investigate what information the unauthorized actor may have accessed or exfiltrated and resolve open items related to the incident. We expect expenses, net of insurance, to be approximately $2.0 to $3.0 million, with the majority incurred in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. We do not expect the temporary operational disruption that occurred to have a material impact on our financial results. Any failure or perceived failure by us to comply with applicable privacy or security laws, regulations, policies or obligations in connection with this incident, could result in government enforcement actions, regulatory investigations, litigation, fines and penalties and/or adverse publicity, which could impact expenses associated with the incident.

FOURTH QUARTER CONFERENCE CALL

Due to the pending merger with Amphenol Corporation, we will not host a conference call to review our fiscal year fourth quarter 2020 financial results.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We believe that disclosing adjusted diluted earnings per share, which is diluted earnings per share excluding the impact from impairment of assets, restructuring / other expenses, acquisition-related expenses, the acquisition inventory fair value adjustments, contingent consideration fair value adjustment and the impact of the change in weighted average diluted common shares outstanding is useful to investors as a measure of operating performance. We use this as one measure to monitor and evaluate operating performance. Adjusted diluted earnings per share is a financial measure that does not reflect United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We calculate this measure by adding back the after-tax effect of the impairment of assets, restructuring / other expenses, acquisition-related expenses, the acquisition inventory fair value adjustments, the contingent consideration fair value adjustment to net income and the impact of the change in weighted average diluted common shares outstanding and dividing the result by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

We believe that disclosing earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), EBITDA excluding the impact from stock-based compensation, impairment of assets, restructuring / other expenses, acquisition-related expenses, the acquisition inventory fair value adjustments and the contingent consideration fair value adjustment (Adjusted EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue (Adjusted EBITDA margin) are useful to investors as a measure of leverage and operating performance. We use these measures to monitor and evaluate leverage and operating performance. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are financial measures that do not reflect GAAP. We calculate EBITDA by adding back interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expense to net income. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding back stock-based compensation, impairment of assets, restructuring / other expenses, acquisition-related expenses, the acquisition inventory fair value adjustments and the contingent consideration fair value adjustment to EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by revenue.

We believe that disclosing free cash flow is useful to investors as a measure of operating performance. We use this measure as an indicator of our strength and ability to generate cash. Free cash flow is a financial measure that does not reflect GAAP. We calculate free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less purchases of property and equipment and businesses, net of cash acquired, plus cash proceeds from sales of property and equipment.

Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, not as a substitute for or better than, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the components of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in Exhibits B, C, D and E of this earnings release.
