Mercury Systems Acquires Delta Microwave for USD 40.5 Million

first_imgMercury Systems has announced that it has acquired Delta Microwave, LLC. Delta is a leading designer and manufacturer of high-value radio frequency (RF), microwave and millimeter wave subassemblies and components for military and space markets. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, Mercury acquired Delta for $40.5 million in cash, subject to net working capital and net debt adjustments, and is expected to be treated as an asset sale for tax purposes. The transaction presents opportunities for significant cost synergies in addition to the tax benefits associated with the transaction structure. For its fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, Delta had revenues of approximately $12.8 million and is on a rapid growth trajectory supported by a strong backlog of funded orders.Delta Microwave’s strengths in high-power, high-frequency active and passive microwave components and subassemblies – particularly in GaN solid-state power amplifiers – is driving this strong backlog and growth. With the acquisition Mercury has added new capabilities add scale which will enable them to expand their addressable market into satellite communications (SatCom), datalinks and space launch. These markets are well-aligned with Mercury’s existing market focus and will deepen their penetration into radar, electronic warfare (EW), and precision-guided munitions markets.last_img read more

Resentment mixed with sympathy

first_imgAllies in the U.S.-led war on terrorism renewed their resolve Monday to fight fanaticism, while skeptics countered that they can no longer follow a superpower they say has relinquished its right to lead. “Right after Sept. 11 the world was united with Americans. Their moral leadership was unquestioned,” Pawel Zalewski, head of the Polish parliament’s foreign relations committee, wrote in the Gazeta Wyborcza. “However, this strong moral authority was abused as a result of the Iraq war.” Exactly five years after its message of solidarity, Le Monde titled its lead editorial “The Mistakes of Bush.” Iraqi President Jalal Talabani wrote President George W. Bush on behalf of the Iraqi people, expressing condolences to the families of Sept. 11 victims. “On this sad and memorable day, I would like to reiterate the gratitude of the people of Iraq for the people of America and for your leadership,” Talabani wrote. “The people of Iraq will never forget those who helped them in getting rid of the most brutal and terrorist regime of Saddam Hussein.” In Europe, bells tolled in Rome’s city hall square. Bouquets of white roses and yellow carnations were piled in a memorial garden in London where the names of 67 Britons killed in the New York attacks are inscribed. At a 38-nation Asia-Europe summit in Helsinki, Finland, leaders stood in silence in a circle. The stock exchanges in Nordic and Baltic countries observed two minutes of silence to honor the victims. French President Jacques Chirac, in Helsinki, reiterated in a written message to Bush his nation’s “friendship” in the fight against terrorism. A week after the Sept. 11 attacks, Chirac flew over the World Trade Center site – the first foreign leader to pay personal condolences. That solidarity quickly dissipated into rancor in the buildup to the Iraq war.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Adding to the global jitters, a senior al-Qaida leader issued a new warning. “You gave us every legitimacy and every opportunity to continue fighting you,” said Ayman al-Zawahri, addressing the United States. “You should worry about your presence in the (Persian) Gulf and the second place you should worry about is Israel.” Another video posted on the Internet by al-Qaida showed previously unseen footage of a smiling Osama bin Laden and other commanders in a mountain camp apparently planning the Sept. 11 attacks. PARIS – The nations of the world joined Monday in solemn remembrance of Sept. 11 – but for many, resentment of the United States flowed as readily as tears. Critics say Americans have squandered the good will that prompted France’s Le Monde newspaper to proclaim “We are all Americans” that somber day after the attacks, and that the Iraq war and other U.S. policies have made the world less safe in the five years since. Heads bowed in moments of silence for the 3,000 killed in the attacks on New York and Washington – while the No. 2 al-Qaida leader issued new warnings in a videotape. And dissident voices said the world has traded in civil liberties and other democratic rights in its War on Terror. In Europe, where Islamic terror has struck twice since 9-11, in the Madrid train bombings and the London transit attacks, the silent tributes were tinged with doubts and recriminations. last_img read more
