Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward - Looking Statements Text 3 Certain information in this presentation contains forward - looking statements, including, but not limited to, information relating to Comtech’s and Gilat’s future performance and financial condition, plans and objectives of Comtech’s management and Gilat’s management and Comtech's and Gilat’s assumptions regarding such future performance, financial condition and plans and objectives that involve certain significant known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors not under Comtech's or Gilat’s control which may cause their actual results, future performance and financial condition, and achievement of plans and objectives of Comtech's management and Gilat’s management to be materially different from the results, performance or other expectations implied by these forward - looking statements . Words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward - looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature . Forward - looking statements could be affected by factors including, without limitation : the risk that the acquisitions of Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd . (“Gilat”) and UHP Networks Inc . and its sister company (together, “UHP”) may not be consummated for reasons including that the conditions precedent to the completion of the acquisitions may not be satisfied or the occurrence of any event change or circumstances could give rise to the termination of the agreement ; the risk that regulatory approvals will not be obtained ; the possibility that the expected synergies from recent or pending acquisitions will not be fully realized, or will not be realized within the anticipated time periods ; the risk that acquired businesses will not be integrated with Comtech successfully ; the possibility of disruption from recent or pending acquisitions making it more difficult to maintain business and operational relationships or retain key personnel ; the risk that Comtech will be unsuccessful in implementing a tactical shift in its Government Solutions segment away from bidding on large commodity service contracts and toward pursuing contracts for its niche products with higher margins ; the nature and timing of receipt of, and Comtech’s performance on, new or existing orders that can cause significant fluctuations in net sales and operating results ; the timing and funding of government contracts ; adjustments to gross profits on long - term contracts ; risks associated with international sales ; rapid technological change ; evolving industry standards ; new product announcements and enhancements, including the risks associated with expanding sales of Comtech's Heights TM Networking Platform (“Heights”) ; changing customer demands and or procurement strategies ; changes in prevailing economic and political conditions ; changes in the price of oil in global markets ; changes in foreign currency exchange rates ; risks associated with legal proceedings, customer claims for indemnification and other similar matters ; risks associated with Comtech's obligations under its Credit Facility ; risks associated with large contracts ; risks associated with the COVID - 19 pandemic ; and other factors described in this and Comtech's and Gilat’s other filings with the SEC . Neither Comtech nor Gilat undertakes any duty to update any forward - looking statements contained herein . 2

 

 

Use of Non - GAAP Financial Measures Text 3 In order to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company’s and Gilat’s financial results, this presentation contains "Non - GAAP financial measures" under the rules of the SEC . The Company’s and Gilat’s Adjusted EBITDA is a Non - GAAP measure that represents earnings (loss) before income taxes, interest (income) and other, write - off of deferred financing costs, interest expense, amortization of stock - based compensation, amortization of intangibles, depreciation expense, estimated contract settlement costs, settlement of intellectual property litigation, acquisition plan expenses, facility exit costs and strategic alternatives analysis expenses and other . The Company’s and Gilat’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the definition of EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA used by other companies and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies . Adjusted EBITDA is also a measure frequently requested by the Company’s and Gilat’s investors and analysts . The Company and Gilat believe that investors and analysts may use Adjusted EBITDA, along with other information contained in their SEC filings, in assessing the Company’s or Gilat’s performance and comparability of its results with other companies . The Company’s and Gilat’s Non - GAAP measures reflect the GAAP measures as reported, adjusted for certain items as described in Appendix II . These Non - GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool as they exclude the financial impact of transactions necessary to conduct the Company’s and Gilat’s business, such as the granting of equity compensation awards, and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP . These measures are adjusted as described in the reconciliation of GAAP to Non - GAAP in Appendix II, but these adjustments should not be construed as an inference that all of these adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non - recurring . Non - GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP . Investors are advised to carefully review the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in the Company’s and Gilat’s SEC filings . 3

 

 

Text Comtech – Impact of COVID - 19  Our third quarter of fiscal 2020 corresponded precisely with the period in which worldwide restrictions on business activities were in force due to the COVID - 19 pandemic.  In response to lower sales and delayed orders, we implemented a variety of cost saving measures, including reducing global headcount by approximately 10%, reducing salaries, suspending merit increases and eliminating certain discretionary expenses. Severance costs relating to these actions were not material and our cost reduction efforts continue.  While deemed an essential business by the U.S. government, for the safety of our employees, customers, partners and suppliers, we implemented remote working arrangements, curtailed most business travel, and established social distancing safeguards at our facilities. 4  We believe that the pandemic’s worst impact on our business is largely behind us.  Our long - term fundamentals remain strong as we continue to believe we are well - positioned for growth as business conditions meaningfully improve.

Words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature. Forward-looking statements could be affected by factors including, without limitation: the risk that the acquisitions of Gilat and UHP Networks Inc. and its sister company (together, “UHP”) may not be consummated for reasons including that the conditions precedent to the completion of the acquisitions may not be satisfied or the occurrence of any event change or circumstances could give rise to the termination of the agreement; the risk that regulatory approvals will not be obtained; the possibility that the expected synergies from recent or pending acquisitions will not be fully realized, or will not be realized within the anticipated time periods; the risk that acquired businesses will not be integrated with Comtech successfully; the possibility of disruption from recent or pending acquisitions making it more difficult to maintain business and operational relationships or retain key personnel; the risk that Comtech will be unsuccessful in implementing a tactical shift in its Government Solutions segment away from bidding on large commodity service contracts and toward pursuing contracts for its niche products with higher margins; the nature and timing of receipt of, and Comtech’s performance on, new or existing orders that can cause significant fluctuations in net sales and operating results; the timing and funding of government contracts; adjustments to gross profits on long-term contracts; risks associated with international sales; rapid technological change; evolving industry standards; new product announcements and enhancements, including the risks associated with expanding sales of Comtech's HeightsTM Networking Platform; changing customer demands and or procurement strategies; changes in prevailing economic and political conditions; changes in the price of oil in global markets; changes in foreign currency exchange rates; risks associated with legal proceedings, customer claims for indemnification and other similar matters; risks associated with Comtech's obligations under its Credit Facility; risks associated with large contracts; risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic; and other factors described in this and Comtech's and Gilat’s other filings with the SEC.
