A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in Tables 5 through 8, along with the accompanying notes.
“Our second-quarter results were excellent, driven by strength in RF Communications, solid results at Government Communications Systems and significant improvement at Broadcast Communications, ” said Howard L. Lance, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Organic year-over-year revenue growth was strong at 9 percent with all of our businesses contributing. In the second quarter, we announced a definitive agreement to acquire Schlumberger’s Global Connectivity Services business, adding scale to our global managed satellite communications services capabilities, increasing our international footprint and further diversifying the company into faster-growing markets. The acquisition is expected to close in our fiscal 2011 third quarter. This crossover strategy allows the company to provide the same trusted assured communications solutions to both government and commercial customers alike.”
