Quarterly Report


Item 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

(The following should be read in conjunction with Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contained in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.)

OVERVIEW

Astronics Corporation, through its subsidiaries Astronics Advanced Electronic Systems Corp., Ballard Technology, DME Corporation, Luminescent Systems Inc., Luminescent Systems Canada Inc., and Max-Viz, Inc. designs and manufactures electrical power generation systems, control and distribution systems, lighting systems and components, aircraft safety products, avionics databus solutions, enhanced vision systems and test, training and simulation systems. The Company operates in two distinct segments, Aerospace and Test Systems and has eight principal facilities. The Company has one location in each of New York State, New Hampshire, Oregon and Quebec, Canada, and two facilities in each of Washington State, and Florida.

Our Aerospace segment serves four primary markets. They are the military, commercial transport, business jet and FAA/airport markets. We serve one primary market in the Test Systems segment, which is the military. Our strategy is to develop and maintain positions of technical leadership in chosen aerospace and test system markets, to leverage those positions to grow the amount of content and volume of product it sells to the markets in those segments and to selectively acquire businesses with similar technical capabilities that could benefit from our leadership position and strategic direction.

Key factors affecting our growth and profitability are the rate at which new aircraft are produced, government funding of military programs, our ability to have our products designed into the plans for new aircraft and the rates at which aircraft owners, including commercial airlines, refurbish or install upgrades to their aircraft. Once designed into a new aircraft, the spare parts business is frequently retained by the Company. We continue to look for opportunities in all of our markets to capitalize on our core competencies to expand our existing business and to grow through strategic acquisitions.

ACQUISITIONS

Peco, Inc.

On May 28, 2013, Astronics Corporation entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") by and among the Company, Peco, Inc., an Oregon corporation, ("Peco") pursuant to which the Company has agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Peco. The business combination was completed July 18, 2013. Peco is expected to be part of our Aerospace segment.

Under the terms of the Agreement, the consideration for the stock of Peco is $136.0 million in cash. The Stock Purchase Agreement also contains an agreement whereby the Company and the Peco Sellers ("Sellers") may make a tax election under Section 338(h)(10) of the Internal Revenue Code. This election will allow the Company to deduct the amortization of acquired goodwill and other intangible assets from its taxable income. The additional income tax to the Sellers that is associated with the election, which will be determined by year-end, would require additional consideration to be paid to the Sellers. The Company has the right to revoke this election at any time prior to November 30, 2013, in which case it will have no obligation to pay such make-whole payment to the Sellers. The initial accounting for the acquisition of Peco was incomplete at the time these financial statements were issued. The preparation of certain supplemental pro forma information will not be finalized until the initial accounting for the acquisition is completed.

Max-Viz, Inc.

On July 30, 2012 we acquired by merger, 100% of the stock of Max-Viz, Inc. ("Max-Viz") a manufacturer of industry-leading enhanced vision systems for defense and commercial aerospace applications for the purpose of improving situational awareness. Max-Viz is included in our aerospace reporting segment. The addition of Max-Viz diversifies the products and technologies that Astronics offers. We acquired Max-Viz for $10.7 million in cash plus contingent purchase consideration up to a maximum of $8.0 million subject to meeting certain revenue growth targets over the next three years. The additional purchase consideration is recorded at its estimated fair value at the date of acquisition based upon the Company's assessment of the probability of Max-Viz achieving the revenue growth targets. The estimated value of the contingent consideration recorded is insignificant.
