EXECUTIVE COMMENTARY - DR. JEFF GRAVES, PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

"We continue to execute on our long-term strategy of delivering consistent top-line growth and margin expansion, recognizing that individual quarters may be volatile. Central to this strategy is the contribution from our Sensors business, which is delivering near double-digit revenue growth at highly accretive margins to our consolidated operations. In the first quarter, this growth was driven by strength in our Sensors test sector, and by the continued ramp-up of volume associated with our U.S. Department of Defense contract. We expect this strong performance to continue to strengthen throughout the fiscal year, especially as our integration of the Endevco product line continues. With the strong fundamental demand trends in both the test and automation markets, we expect our Sensors business to continue to grow on average at double-digit annual rates, with incremental margin expansion.

As anticipated, we continue to experience weakness in the top line for our Test & Simulation business mainly due to delays in order timing from the second half of fiscal year 2019. Despite the volume impact, profitability in our Test & Simulation business was largely maintained at prior year levels due to improved quality of backlog and the increasing impact of our efficiency initiatives that have been our priority over the last two years. These efforts are continuing and anticipated to be increasingly felt with accelerating volume growth in the second half of the fiscal year.

Based upon our opportunity pipeline, we anticipate a strong rebound in order rates, and corresponding growth in backlog as we move into and through the second half of fiscal year 2020. We expect this to be driven primarily by increased strength in our non-automotive markets for both of our businesses. This growth in backlog will ultimately translate to accelerated revenue growth and increased profitability in subsequent quarters.

Subsequent to quarter-end, we were pleased to formally close the acquisition of certain entities of the Danish company R&D ("R&D") as previously announced in November 2019. R&D brings us a very talented engineering team, a proven capability to deliver state-of-the-art testing solutions for wind power, aero propulsion and other very demanding applications, an excellent customer base, and a strong backlog of business stretching into fiscal year 2021. With the increasing strength in our business, coupled with this complementary acquisition, we look forward to a positive fiscal year 2020."

HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE 2020 FIRST FISCAL QUARTER

Revenue
Revenue was $205.8 million, up 1.3% compared to the same prior year period, driven by continued strong revenue growth in Sensors. Sensors growth was supported by strong global demand in our test sector, and by the continued ramp-up of volume associated with our U.S. Department of Defense contract. In addition, Endevco, which closed during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, has started to contribute more meaningfully to the top line as our integration efforts have progressed. This strength was offset by weakness in Europe in our Sensors position sector, driven in large part by mobile hydraulic applications in heavy duty machinery. Test & Simulation experienced a decline in volume from the continued weakness in the ground vehicles sector and a decline in services, partially offset by volume growth in our materials and structures sectors.

Orders
Test & Simulation orders for the quarter were $103.9 million, down 17.0% compared to the same prior year period driven by lower orders across all market sectors, delays in large custom orders and softness in the Americas region as customers continue to push out orders to later in the year. The decline was partially offset by order growth in services.

Sensors orders for the quarter were $81.2 million, a 17.3% decrease compared to the same prior year period. This decline was primarily driven by fiscal year 2019 funded orders from our U.S. Department of Defense contract that did not repeat in fiscal year 2020, as well as weakness in the European and Americas regions specific to our position sector. This decrease was offset by the addition of orders from the acquisition of Endevco.

Backlog
Backlog of $396.0 million was down 23.1% compared to the same prior year period. Sequentially, from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019, backlog was down 5.7% due to the decline in order volume used to replenish the strong conversion of our backlog on outstanding projects to revenue within the quarter in both Test & Simulation and Sensors. Ending backlog for Test & Simulation and Sensors was $322.6 million and $73.3 million, respectively.

Net Income and Diluted Earnings Per Share
GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.27 compared to $0.54 in the same prior year period on net income of $5.3 million and $10.5 million, respectively. The $0.27 decrease was primarily driven by higher Sensors operating expenses mainly from the acquisition of Endevco, a decline in Test & Simulation gross profit from unfavorable product mix, higher interest expense on increased debt levels and an increase in the effective tax rate. First quarter of fiscal year 2020 and 2019 results includes $0.10 and $0.05, respectively, of non-recurring costs associated with restructuring, acquisition-related expenses and acquisition inventory fair value adjustment from the acquisitions of E2M and Endevco in the first and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2019, respectively. Adjusting for these items, adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.37 for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, and $0.59 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. Our diluted earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share includes the amortization of purchased intangible assets of $0.20 and $0.15 for the periods ended December 28, 2019 and December 29, 2018, respectively. We incurred pre-tax amortization expense of $4.8 million ($3.8 million post-tax) and $3.8 million ($3.0 million post-tax) for the periods ended December 28, 2019 and December 29, 2018, respectively, in relation to companies that we have acquired.

Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA declined slightly to $29.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, down 1.6% compared to the same prior year period. This decline was primarily due to higher Sensors operating expenses mainly from the acquisition of Endevco and a decline in Test & Simulation gross profit from unfavorable product mix, partially offset by higher gross profit in Sensors from higher revenue volume. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is provided in Exhibit C of this earnings release.

Balance Sheet
During the quarter, our total debt balance increased by $28.1 million to $540.7 million as we drew on our credit facility to fund continued investments in the business. We ended the quarter with $64.1 million of cash on the balance sheet, leading to a net debt balance of $476.6 million. The ratio of interest-bearing debt to Adjusted EBITDA and the ratio of net interest-bearing debt to Adjusted EBITDA remain within our targeted range and the debt covenant levels specified in our debt agreements.

Dividend
The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share. The dividend was payable on December 30, 2019 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on December 16, 2019. This was our 152nd consecutive quarterly dividend.

OUTLOOK

Test & Simulation Business
Given our expectations on order rates, revenue and product mix, as well as the increasing impact of our efficiency initiatives, our performance for the second half of the fiscal year is expected to show a marked improvement over the first half of the fiscal year. This will lead to overall improvement year-over-year in the Test & Simulation business, and a strong backlog position as we exit the year and look to fiscal year 2021. Future orders growth from strength in our simulation platforms, material testing, service offerings and especially our structures sector, is expected to overcome the headwinds experienced in the global economy. While we are continuing to await a resurgence in the automotive markets, we continue to benefit from the rapidly expanding use of advanced materials, such as carbon-fiber composites, the adoption of additive manufacturing methods for net-shape component fabrications, and the rapidly increasing complexity of ground and air vehicles which requires new simulation methods for determining product performance and life. Our energy and infrastructure markets remain robust, driven by continued growth in wind power and advanced building designs that are more resistant to damage from earthquakes, sea and storm events. The simulation market continues to benefit from increased demand for pilot training and rapid theme park expansions, which fits nicely with our expanded product offerings.

In addition to these growth opportunities, we continue to invest in operational efficiency initiatives to improve profitability, and to develop new products and technologies to drive margin expansion and to generate the highest demand for Test & Simulation products and services in the coming years.

Sensors Business
Our Sensors business demand is driven by accelerating new product introductions across all major markets and geographies, and expanded opportunities associated with the U.S. Department of Defense. The strategic acquisition of Endevco has brought together two iconic brands in the test and measurement sensors market, PCB and Endevco, providing for further growth opportunities. This combination of positive factors, including full production ramp-up associated with our U.S. Department of Defense contract and acquisition of Endevco, is anticipated to provide strong double-digit top-line growth, along with Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion, for the Sensors business in fiscal year 2020.

Consolidated
Based on these factors, we maintain our expected outlook for fiscal year 2020 including:

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We believe that disclosing adjusted diluted earnings per share, which is diluted earnings per share excluding the impact from restructuring expenses, acquisition-related expenses and the acquisition inventory fair value adjustment 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 restructuring expenses, acquisition-related expenses and the acquisition inventory fair value adjustment to net income 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, restructuring expenses, acquisition-related expenses and the acquisition inventory 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, restructuring expenses, acquisition-related expenses and the acquisition inventory 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, E and F of this earnings release.
