Mercury Systems Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

"Our longer-term outlook for Mercury remains positive as well. We have established and secured a competitive standing as the premier commercial ISR subsystem outsourcing partner to the defense prime contractors. When the industry returns to more normal conditions, we believe the pressure to outsource to companies like ours will only increase, and that Mercury is well-positioned to capture a significant share of this potential growth opportunity. In addition, given our cash management focus and recent expense reductions, we expect this recovery to include the potential for improved profitability and cash flow generation."

Mercury's total backlog at December 31, 2012 was $133.2 million, a $13.0 million sequential increase from September 30, 2012, and a $10.7 million increase from December 31, 2011.
