Full year 2012 results:

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $2,888.6 million, as compared to $2,817.5 million in the year ended December 31, 2011. The leading contributors to the Company's revenues were the airborne systems and C4ISR systems areas of operations. The major increase was in the airborne systems area of operations, primarily due to the increased revenues from North American customers of avionic system, aerostructures and maintenance services. The decrease in the land systems area of operations was mainly due to a decline in revenues of fire control and life support systems in Israel and North America.

In our reporting of distributions of revenues by geographic regions we have updated the definition of our geographic regions as shown in the attached table of Distribution of Revenues. This update was made to enhance the visibility of distribution of revenues by geographic regions in light of the growing importance of our business in the Latin American and Asia-Pacific regions.

Cost of revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $2,072.7 million, as compared to $2,085.5 million in the year ended December 31, 2011. Cost of revenues in 2011 included an expense of $72.8 million related to the cessation of a program with a foreign customer as mentioned above.

Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $815.9 million (28.2% of revenues), as compared with gross profit of $732.0 million (26.0% of revenues) in the year ended December 31, 2011. The gross profit margin in 2012 increased mainly as a result of the mix of programs sold in the year. The gross profit in 2011 was reduced by the expense of $72.8 million related to the cessation of the program mentioned above. The non-GAAP gross profit in 2012 was $840.1 million (29.1% of revenues), as compared to $835.7 million (29.7% of revenues) in 2011.

Taxes on income for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $17.1 million (effective tax rate of 9.7%), as compared to taxes on income of $13.6 million (effective tax rate of 13.1%) in the year ended December 31, 2011.

Non-GAAP financial data:

The following non-GAAP financial data is presented to enable investors to have additional information on the Company's business performance as well as a further basis for periodical comparisons and trends relating to the Company's financial results. The Company believes such data provides useful information to investors by facilitating more meaningful comparisons of the Company's financial results over time. Such non-GAAP information is used by the Company's management to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate the Company's current performance. However, investors are cautioned that, unlike financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, non-GAAP measures may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures for other companies.    

The non-GAAP financial data includes reconciliation adjustments regarding non-GAAP gross profit, operating income, net income and diluted EPS. In arriving at non-GAAP presentations, companies generally factor out items such as those that have a non-recurring impact on the income statements, various non-cash items, significant effects of retroactive tax legislation and changes in accounting guidance and other items which, in management's judgment, are items that are considered to be outside of the review of core operating results.

In the Company's non-GAAP presentation, the Company made the following adjustments: (1) added back amortization of purchased intangible assets, (2) added back significant reorganization, restructuring and other related expenses, (3) added back impairment of investments, including impairment of auction rate securities,   (4) subtracted gain from changes in holdings, including revaluation of the previously held shares at the acquisition date when a business combination is achieved in stages (step-up), (5) added back impairment loss from discontinued operations, (6) excluded the impact of the cessation of a program with a foreign customer and (7) excluded the income tax effects of the foregoing.

These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP, and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.  Investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as replacements for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(*) The distribution of revenues by geographical regions has been modified in certain respects from our reports in prior years. The regions of "Israel" and "Europe" remain unchanged. The "U.S." region has been changed to "North America", which includes the U.S. and Canada. We now also include two new regions: "Latin America" and "Asia-Pacific" (east of the Caspian Sea). The remaining markets are included in "Other countries".
