     On August 9, 2007, DRS Technologies,  Inc. announced  financial results for
the  fiscal  2008  first  quarter  ended  June 30,  2007.  The press  release is
furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated
herein by reference.

     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 the amortization and write-off of debt premium and 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 "Outlook," and  information  related to organic  revenue growth and
projections regarding future performance).
