On August 3, 2006, DRS Technologies, Inc. announced financial results for the
first quarter of fiscal 2007 ended June 30, 2006. The press release is furnished
as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by

     The press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures "EBITDA" and
"free cash flow." We reference these non-GAAP financial measures frequently in
our decision-making because it provides supplemental information that
facilitates internal comparisons to historical operating performance of prior
periods and external comparisons to competitors' historical operating
performance. We define EBITDA as net earnings before net interest and related
expenses (primarily amortization of debt issuance costs), income taxes,
depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is presented as additional information
because we believe it to be a useful indicator of an entity's debt capacity and
its ability to service its debt. EBITDA is not a substitute for operating
income, net earnings or cash flows provided by operating activities, as
determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
EBITDA is not a complete cash flow measure because EBITDA is a measure of
liquidity that does not include reductions for cash payments for an entity's
obligation to service its debt, fund its working capital, business acquisitions
and capital expenditures, and pay its income taxes. Rather, EBITDA is one
potential indicator of an entity's ability to fund these cash requirements.
EBITDA also is not a complete measure of an entity's profitability because it
does not include costs and expenses for depreciation and amortization, interest
and related expenses, and income taxes. We disclose free cash flow because we
believe that it is a measurement of cash flow generated that is available for
investing and financing activities. Free cash flow is defined as net cash
provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. We believe that the
most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to free cash flow is net cash
provided by operating activities. Free cash flow represents cash generated after
paying for interest on borrowings, income taxes, capital expenditures and
changes in working capital, but before repaying outstanding debt, investing cash
to acquire businesses and making other strategic investments. Thus, key
assumptions underlying free cash flow are that the Company will be able to
refinance its existing debt when it matures with new debt and that the Company
will be able to finance any new acquisitions it makes by raising new debt or
equity capital.

     The information furnished pursuant to this Current Report on Form 8-K shall
be considered to be "filed" under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
amended (other than information under the headings "New Contract Awards and
Backlog" and "Fiscal 2007 and Second Quarter Guidance," and information related
to organic revenue growth and projections regarding future performance).
