COMTECH TELECOMMUNICATIONS CORP. ANNOUNCES
RESULTS FOR FISCAL 2012 FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR AND
PROVIDES INITIAL FISCAL 2013 GUIDANCE


Melville, New York – September 26, 2012
– Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) today reported its operating results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended July 31, 2012.

Net sales for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2012 were $112.8 million and $425.1 million, respectively, as compared to $140.3 million and $612.4 million for the same periods in fiscal 2011. The fourth quarter and full year decrease in sales is primarily due to lower net sales, as expected, in the Company’s mobile data communications segment which was due to lower MTS and BFT-1 sales to the U.S. Army.

Excluding $2.6 million of charges and expenses associated with a restructuring plan to wind-down the Company’s mobile data communications segment’s microsatellite product line and $2.6 million of costs incurred in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 related to a withdrawn fiscal 2011 contested proxy solicitation, the Company reported Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.45 and $1.55 for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended July 31, 2012, respectively. GAAP diluted EPS was $0.38 and $1.42 for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended July 31, 2012, respectively, as compared to $0.42 and $2.22 for the comparative periods in fiscal 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA was $21.6 million and $76.2 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 and the full fiscal year ended July 31, 2012, respectively.

The Company also announced initial financial guidance for its July 31, 2013 fiscal year. The Company projects that sales for fiscal 2013 will be between $375.0 million and $395.0 million, which assumes virtually no revenue generated from its microsatellite product line. GAAP diluted EPS is expected to be between $1.40 and $1.50 and includes additional microsatellite product line restructuring charges of approximately $1.0 million, which are expected to be recorded in the first quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2013 is expected to be in the range of $70.0 million to $74.0 million.

In commenting on the Company’s performance and business outlook, Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Although market conditions remain challenging, we posted solid results in the fourth quarter and achieved our highest level of quarterly bookings in fiscal 2012.”

Mr. Kornberg added, “We enter fiscal 2013 with optimism and we continue to take steps to focus on our core businesses and to appropriately respond to the ever-changing business environment.”
