Fiscal Year 2005 Outlook

Considering the company's strong fiscal year 2005 first half performance, the prevailing strength of our core government and commercial markets, and the acquisition of TELDIX GmbH, the company now anticipates fiscal year 2005 sales to be in the range of $3.35 billion to $3.40 billion; an increase of $75 million to $100 million from our previous sales guidance range. The company also raised its earnings per share guidance range by 5 cents and is now anticipating earnings per share will be in the range of $2.05 to $2.15. Cash provided from operating activities is expected to be between $450 million and $500 million, unchanged from the company's previous guidance.

Government Systems revenues are now expected to grow in the range of 15% to 17% (previously 10% to 12%) from fiscal year 2004 and represent approximately 53% of total company sales. Revenues from TELDIX are expected to contribute approximately $45 million, or 3% of the Government Systems revenue growth. Commercial Systems revenues are now anticipated to increase in the range of 13% to 15% (previously 11% to 13%) from fiscal year 2004 and represent about 47% of the total.

Government Systems segment operating margin is still projected to approximate 18% for the full 2005 fiscal year, despite the impact of initially lower margin revenues from TELDIX. Commercial Systems segment operating margin is also projected to be approximately 18% for the full year.
