The net income has significantly decreased by 135.4% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $5.68 million to -$2.01 million.
- Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation.

- The share price of MERCURY SYSTEMS INC has not done very well: it is down 10.04% and has underperformed the S&P 500, in part reflecting the company's sharply declining earnings per share when compared to the year-earlier quarter. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.
- MERCURY SYSTEMS INC has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, MERCURY SYSTEMS INC swung to a loss, reporting -$0.44 versus $0.75 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings (-$0.26 versus -$0.44).
- MRCY, with its decline in revenue, slightly underperformed the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly dropped by 8.9%. Weakness in the company's revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.
