Mercury Computer Systems To Acquire KOR Electronics And Paragon Dynamics

Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mc.com), a trusted provider of commercially developed application-ready ISR subsystems for defense prime contractors, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire KOR Electronics, Inc. (KOR) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Paragon Dynamics, Inc. (PDI). Based in Cypress, California, KOR designs and develops digital radio frequency memory (DRFM) units for a variety of modern Electronic Warfare (EW) applications, as well as radar environment simulation and test systems for defense applications. Paragon Dynamics, based in Aurora, Colorado, provides sophisticated analytic services and customized multi-INT data fusion and exploitation solutions for the Intelligence Community. Under the terms of a merger agreement, KOR will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mercury for an all-cash purchase price of $70 million. The acquisition will be funded with cash on hand, and is expected to be immediately accretive to earnings after excluding the effects of non-cash amortization of intangible assets related to the acquisition. The transaction, which is subject to final approval by KOR shareholders, is expected to close within Mercury’s fiscal 2012 second quarter ending December 31, 2011.

KOR is focused on the exploitation of the RF signals domain and is a leading provider of digital RF memory (DRFM) technology, an integral component of modern Electronic Warfare radar jamming systems, with flight experience on a wide variety of U.S. military aircraft. KOR also has a large installed base in the radar environment simulation industry with domain expertise in many radar systems deployed by the U.S. DoD and internationally. KOR’s technology and customization expertise in these program-critical areas will allow Mercury to expand its Application Ready Subsystem offerings for defense prime contractor customers.

Paragon Dynamics provides best-in-class systems and software engineering, and mission analysis solutions for the U.S. Intelligence Community. Combined with Mercury’s leadership in multi-INT application-ready ISR subsystems, PDI’s domain expertise and mission-specific services will offer Intelligence Community customers a comprehensive set of solutions for advanced, classified programs.
