NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JUNE 30, 2011



Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies   

   The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-K. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The operating results for the nine month period ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended September 30, 2011. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10K for the year ended September 30, 2010.



Note 2. Industry Segment Data

  The Company's primary business segment involves the operations of Microwave Filter Company, Inc. (MFC) which designs, develops, manufactures and sells electronic filters, both for radio and microwave frequencies, to help process signal distribution and to prevent unwanted signals from disrupting transmit or receive operations. Markets served include cable television, television and radio broadcast, satellite broadcast, mobile radio, commercial communications and defense electronics. 


Note 3. Inventories                  

  Inventories are stated at the lower of cost determined on the first-in, first-out method or market.

Note 4. Income Taxes

  The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740-10. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are based on the difference between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities as measured by the enacted tax rates which are anticipated to be in effect when these differences reverse. The deferred tax provision is the result of the net change in the deferred tax assets and liabilities.  A valuation allowance is established when it is necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts expected to be realized. The Company has provided a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets.

  The Company adopted FASB ASC 740-10. FASB ASC 740-10 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an entity’s financial statements  and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attributes for financial statement disclosure of tax position taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. Additionally, it provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. The Company determined it has no uncertain tax positions and therefore no amounts are recorded.

Note 5. Legal Matters

  The State of New York Workers’ Compensation Board has commenced an action against Microwave Filter Company, Inc. to recover for an underfunded self insured program that Microwave Filter Company, Inc. participated in. Due to the relatively short period of time Microwave Filter Company, Inc. participated in the program and the limited amount of potential exposure, we do not expect the resolution of this action will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.



Note 6. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

  The carrying values of the Company cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments.

   The Company currently does not trade in or utilize derivative financial instruments.

Note 7. Significant Customers

  Sales to one customer represented approximately 18% of total sales for the nine months ended June 30, 2011.


<PAGE>                             7


Table of Contents

Note 8. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

   In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, issued guidance regarding the presentation of comprehensive income. The new standard requires the presentation of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The new standard also requires presentation of adjustments for items that are reclassified from other comprehensive income to net income in the statement where the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income are presented. The updated guidance is effective on a retrospective basis for financial statements issued for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this guidance will not have a material impact on our financial statements.

   In May 2011, the FASB issued additional guidance on fair value measurements that clarifies the application of existing guidance and disclosure requirements, changes certain fair value measurement principles and requires additional disclosures about fair value measurements. The updated guidance is effective on a prospective basis for financial statements issued for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this guidance will not have a material impact on our financial statements. 


Note 9. Subsequent Events

   On August 3, 2011, the Board of Directors of Microwave Filter Company, Inc. declared a special cash dividend of fifteen cents per common share. The dividend is payable on September 6, 2011 to shareholders of record as of August 19, 2011.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND
ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

  Microwave Filter Company, Inc. operates primarily in the United States and principally in one industry. The Company extends credit to business customers based upon ongoing credit evaluations. Microwave Filter Company, Inc. (MFC) designs, develops, manufactures and sells electronic filters, both for radio and microwave frequencies, to help process signal distribution and to prevent unwanted signals from disrupting transmit or receive operations. Markets served include cable television, television and radio broadcast, satellite broadcast, mobile radio, commercial communications and defense electronics.


Critical Accounting Policies


  The Company's consolidated financial statements are based on the application of United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). GAAP requires the use of estimates, assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenue and expense amounts reported. The Company believes its use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently applied. Valuations based on estimates are reviewed for reasonableness and adequacy on a consistent basis throughout the Company. Primary areas where financial information of the Company is subject to the use of estimates, assumptions and the application of judgment include revenues, receivables, inventories, and taxes. Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010 describes the significant accounting policies used in preparation of the consolidated financial statements. The most significant areas involving management judgments and estimates are described below and are considered by management to be critical to understanding the financial condition and results of operations of the Company.

  Revenues from product sales are recorded as the products are shipped and title and risk of loss have passed to the customer, provided that no significant vendor or post-contract support obligations remain and the collection of the related receivable is probable. Billings in advance of the Company's performance of such work are reflected as customer deposits in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet.

  Allowances for doubtful accounts are based on estimates of losses related to customer receivable balances. The establishment of reserves requires the use of judgment and assumptions regarding the potential for losses on receivable balances.

  The Company's inventories are stated at the lower of cost determined on the first-in, first-out method or market. The Company uses certain estimates and judgments and considers several factors including product demand and changes in technology to provide for excess and obsolescence reserves to properly value inventory.


<PAGE>                              9


Table of Contents

  The Company established a warranty reserve which provides for the estimated cost of product returns based upon historical experience and any known conditions or circumstances. Our warranty obligation is affected by product that does not meet specifications and performance requirements and any related costs of addressing such matters.

  The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740-10. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are based on the difference between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities as measured by the enacted tax rates which are anticipated to be in effect when these differences reverse. The deferred tax provision is the result of the net change in the deferred tax assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is established when it is necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts expected to be realized. The Company has provided a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets.

  Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2011 equaled $1,179,496, an increase of $150,337 or 14.6%, when compared to net sales of $1,029,159 for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

  MFC’s RF/Microwave product sales increased $142,142 or 47.6% to $440,508 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to RF/Microwave product sales of $298,366 during the same period last year. Management attributes the increase in sales to the Company’s efforts to encourage Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) relationships. MFC’s RF/Microwave products are sold primarily to Original Equipment Manufacturers that serve the mobile radio, commercial communications and defense electronics markets. The Company continues to invest in production engineering and infrastructure development to penetrate OEM market segments as they become popular. MFC is concentrating its technical resources and product development efforts toward potential high volume customers as part of a concentrated effort to provide substantial long-term growth. Sales to one OEM customer represented approximately 17% of total sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 compared to approximately 11% of total sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

  MFC’s Satellite product sales increased $30,794 or 8.4% to $398,190 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to Satellite product sales of $367,396 during the same period last year. The increase can be attributed to an increase in demand for the Company’s filters which suppress strong out-of-band interference caused by military and civilian radar systems and other sources. Although economic conditions do impact sales, management expects demand for these types of filters to continue with the proliferation of earth stations world wide and increased sources of interference.

<PAGE>                             11

  MFC’s Cable TV product sales decreased $12,328 or 3.8% to $311,732 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to Cable TV product sales of $324,060 during the same period last year. Management continues to project a decrease in demand for Cable TV products due to the shift from analog to digital television. Due to the inherent nature of digital modulation versus analog modulation, fewer filters will be required. The Company has developed filters for digital television and there will still be requirements for analog filters for limited applications in commercial and private cable systems.

  MFC’s Broadcast TV/Wireless Cable product sales decreased $9,923 or 25.6% to $28,771 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to sales of $38,694 during the same period last year. The decrease can be attributed to a decrease in demand for UHF Broadcast products which are primarily sold to system integrators for rural communities.

  MFC's sales order backlog equaled $617,978 at June 30, 2011 compared to sales order backlog of $654,643 at June 30, 2010. However, backlog is not necessarily indicative of future sales. Accordingly, the Company does not believe that its backlog as of any particular date is representative of actual sales for any succeeding period. Approximately 85% of the total sales order backlog at June 30, 2011 is scheduled to ship by September 30, 2011.

  Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2011 equaled $441,804, an increase of $107,665 or 32.2%, when compared to gross profit of $334,139 for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The dollar increase in gross profit can primarily be attributed to the higher sales volume this year when compared to the same period last year. As a percentage of sales, gross profit equaled 37.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to 32.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales can primarily be attributed to the higher sales volume this year providing a higher base to absorb fixed expenses.

  Selling, general and administrative (SGA) expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2011 equaled $395,472, an increase of $10,441 or 2.7%, when compared to SG&A expenses of $385,031 for the three months ended June 30, 2010. As a percentage of sales, SGA expenses decreased to 33.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to 37.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2010 primarily due to the higher sales volume this year when compared to the same period last year.

  The Company recorded income from operations of $46,332 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to a loss from operations of $50,892 for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The improvement in operating income can primarily be attributed to the higher sales volume this year when compared to the same period last year.

  The provision (benefit) for income taxes equaled $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010. We have not recognized any provision for income taxes as pretax income was offset by a reduction in our deferred tax asset valuation reserve. Any benefit for losses has been subject to a valuation allowance since the realization of the deferred tax benefit is not considered more likely than not.

   MFC’s RF/Microwave product sales increased $390,192 or 39.7% to $1,372,078 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to RF/Microwave product sales of $981,886 during the same period last year. Management attributes the increase in sales to the Company’s efforts to encourage Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) relationships. MFC’s RF/Microwave products are sold primarily to Original Equipment Manufacturers that serve the mobile radio, commercial communications and defense electronics markets. The Company continues to invest in production engineering and infrastructure development to penetrate OEM market segments as they become popular. MFC is concentrating its technical resources and product development efforts toward potential high volume customers as part of a concentrated effort to provide substantial long-term growth.

   MFC’s Satellite product sales increased $130,658 or 12% to $1,219,781 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to satellite product sales of $1,089,123 during the same period last year. The increase can be attributed to an increase in demand for the Company’s filters which suppress strong out-of-band interference caused by military and civilian radar systems and other sources. Although economic conditions do impact sales, management expects demand for these types of filters to continue with the proliferation of earth stations world wide and increased sources of interference.

  MFC’s Cable TV product sales increased $37,377 or 3.6% to $1,062,952 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to Cable TV product sales of $1,025,575 during the nine months ended June 30, 2010. The increase can be attributed to a large order received from one customer. Management continues to project a decrease in demand for Cable TV products due to the shift from analog to digital television. Due to the inherent nature of digital modulation versus analog modulation, fewer filters will be required. The Company has developed filters for digital television and there will still be requirements for analog filters for limited applications in commercial and private cable systems.

  MFC’s Broadcast TV/Wireless Cable product sales decreased $81,583 or 51.8% to $76,026 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 when compared to sales of $157,609 during the same period last year. The decrease can be attributed to a decrease in demand for UHF Broadcast products which are primarily sold to system integrators for rural communities.

  Gross profit for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 equaled $1,346,080, an increase of $229,195 or 20.5%, when compared to gross profit of $1,116,885 for the nine months ended June 30, 2010. The increase can primarily be attributed to the higher sales volume this year when compared to the same period last year. As a percentage of sales, gross profit increased to 36.1% for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 compared to 34.3% for the nine months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of sales can primarily be attributed to the higher sales volume this year providing a higher base to absorb fixed expenses.

  SG&A expenses for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 equaled $1,230,582, an increase of $53,910 or 4.6%, when compared to SG&A expenses of $1,176,672 for the nine months ended June 30, 2010. The dollar increase can primarily be attributed to increases in payroll and payroll related expenses and trade show and promotional expenses this year when compared to the same period last year. As a percentage of sales, SGA expenses decreased to 33% for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 compared to 36.1% for the nine months ended June 30, 2010 primarily due to the higher sales volume this year when compared to the same period last year.

  The Company recorded income from operations of $115,498 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 compared to a loss from operations of $59,787 for the nine months ended June 30, 2010. The improvement can primarily be attributed to the higher sales volume this year when compared to the same period last year.

  Other income for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 equaled $6,746, an increase of $1,140 when compared to other income of $5,606 for the nine months ended June 30, 2010. Other income is primarily interest income earned on invested cash balances. Other income may fluctuate based on market interest rates and levels of invested cash balances.

  The provision (benefit) for income taxes equaled $0 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010. We have not recognized any provision for income taxes as pretax income was offset by a reduction in our deferred tax asset valuation reserve. Any benefit for losses has been subject to a valuation allowance since the realization of the deferred tax benefit is not considered more likely than not.

LIQUIDITY and CAPITAL RESOURCES





June 30, 2011 September 30, 2010




Cash & cash equivalents $1,662,968 $1,466,719
Working capital $2,063,349 $1,981,150
Current ratio 5.06 to 1 4.68 to 1
Long-term debt $0 $0

  Cash and cash equivalents increased $196,249 to $1,662,968 at June 30, 2011 when compared to cash and cash equivalents of $1,466,719 at September 30, 2010. The increase was a result of $312,265 in net cash provided by operating activities, $111,395 in net cash used for capital expenditures and $4,621 in net cash used to purchase treasury stock.

  The decrease in accounts receivable of $139,790 at June 30, 2011 when compared to September 30, 2010 can be attributed to improved collections and the decrease in shipments during the quarter ended June 30, 2011 when compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2010.

  The decrease in prepaid expenses and other current assets of $32,691 and the decrease in accounts payable of $26,909 at June 30, 2011 when compared to September 30, 2010 can primarily be attributed to timing.

  Capital expenditures totaling $111,395 for the nine months ended June 30, 2011 consisted primarily of test equipment, simulation software, computer hardware and a Company truck. The Company has committed to building improvements of approximately $50,000 and equipment purchases of approximately $25,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. The Company has committed to approximately $225,000 of capital equipment purchases for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 (the first quarter of fiscal 2012.)

  Management believes that its working capital requirements for the forseeable future will be met by its existing cash balances, future cash flows from operations and its current credit arrangements.
