PART I Item 1. Business (a) General Development of Business HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC.("the Company"), a Delaware corporation organized in 1976, was engaged primarily in the manufacture and sale of high technology Aerospace Fastening Systems products through its wholly- owned subsidiary, Hi-Shear Corporation ("HSC") until February 26, 1996. During the fiscal year ended May 31, 1991, the Company adopted a plan to discontinue the operations of Hi-Shear's Space and Defense segment, comprised of Hi-Shear Technology Corp. ("HSTC") and Defense Systems Corporation ("DSC"). The operation of DSC was terminated in March 1991 and in June 1993, the Company completed the sale of HSTC to a group led by the management of the subsidiary. In June, 1994, the automotive division of Hi-Shear Corporation was incorporated as Hi-Shear Automotive Corp. On February 26, 1996, the Company completed the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation and its subsidiaries which included Hi-Shear Automotive Corp., Hi-Shear Holdings Limited, and Hi-Shear Fasteners Europe Limited, to GFI Industries S.A. (GFI") of Belfort, France for $46 million. With the completion of this sale the Company disposed of its last remaining operating assets and effectively ceased operations. (b) Narrative Description of Business With the sale of its last remaining manufacturing operation on February 26, 1996, the Company no longer conducts an operating business. As outlined in the Company's "Notice Of Annual Meeting of Stockholders", the Company currently anticipates that upon final resolution of its claims against the U.S. Navy, it will complete the distribution of its assets to stockholders and seek stockholder approval to dissolve the Company. The Company currently has four full-time employees. Item 2. Properties The Company's corporate headquarters are located in an office building at North Hills, New York, where 5,300 square feet of space are leased at a current annual rental of approximately $138,000 under a lease which expires May 31, 1997. HSI Properties, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, owns 16 acres of land in Saugus, California, with incidental structures (2,700 sq. ft.) currently being leased to a former subsidiary, Hi-Shear Technology Corp., for $90,000 per year. The lease expires June 1, 1998.

Item 3. Legal Proceedings In 1991, the U.S. Navy terminated for default two contracts held by a discontinued subsidiary of the Company and sought reimbursement of progress payments totaling $11.2 million made against these contracts. The Company appealed the default terminations and on May 31, 1995 its appeal was sustained. This decision effectively released the Company from any obligation to repay progress payments received under the contracts. On January 31, 1996, the Company filed damage claims against the U.S. Navy totaling $62.9 million On February 26, 1996, the Company completed the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation and related entities to GFI Industries S.A. of Belfort, France. As specified in the Stock Purchase Agreement, the sales price is subject to adjustment based upon a review of the closing consolidated balance sheet of Hi-Shear Corporation and verification of the net asset value. To date, the Company and GFI have been unable to reach an agreement on the net asset value with GFI requesting downward adjustments to the sales price totaling $6.4 million. Management of the Company firmly believes that the closing balance sheet as presented to GFI is in accordance with the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement. The disagreement is being submitted to arbitration as required under the Stock Purchase Agreement. The parties are currently in the preliminary stages of selecting an arbitrator. See Commitments and Contingencies in the notes to consolidated financial statements. Item 4. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders None PART II Item 5. Market for the Company's Common Stock and Related Stockholder Matters The Company's Common Stock had, until August 1, 1996, been traded on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") under the symbol "HSI." The following table sets forth the high and low prices per share of the Company's Common Stock, as reported on the NYSE Composite Tape for the periods indicated.

Prior to that the Company had not paid a dividend on common stock since August 1990. Concurrent with this distribution, the NYSE suspended trading in the Company's common stock and made application to delist the issue. The Company's common stock is currently being traded on the Over-The-Counter bulletin board. Under the terms of the agreement for the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation, the Company is restricted from distributing to its stockholders, by means of a dividend or otherwise, at least $3.0 million of the purchase price through March 31, 1997. After that date, the Company may distribute all remaining funds subject to the resolution of purchase price adjustments, if any, with GFI. See Item 3 - Legal Proceedings and Sale of Subsidiary and Commitments and Contingencies in Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements. As of August 23, 1996 there were approximately 900 holders of record of the Company's Common Stock. Item 6. Selected Financial Data The following table sets forth selected financial information of the Company and its subsidiaries for the five years ended May 31, 1996. This selected financial information should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto, and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition included elsewhere herein.

Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition On February 26, 1996, the Company sold its last remaining operating entity, Hi-Shear Corporation and effectively ceased operations. The Company had previously disposed of its business activities dealing with space and defense in June 1993 and had since that time been reporting their operating activities as discontinued operations. The results of operations of the Company include the operating activities of Hi-Shear Corporation and subsidiaries through February 26, 1996. Results of Operations Fiscal 1996 compared to 1995 ---------------------------- The Company's results of operations were significantly impacted by the shorter period of operating activities due to the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation on February 26, 1996. Revenues from operations decreased $12.2 million (20.9%) to $46.4 million in fiscal 1996 from $58.6 million in fiscal 1995 due to the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation. For the year ended May 31, 1996, the Company recorded a gain (net of transaction costs) on the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation of approximately $1.8 million. Operating income decreased $744,000 from $958,000 in fiscal 1995 to $214,000 in fiscal 1996 due to the shortened operating period as well as continued downward pressure on pricing levels and increasing material and labor costs associated with production. The interest income reported in fiscal 1996 was due to interest earned on the investment of the proceeds from the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation. Interest expense declined $227,000 from $1.3 million in fiscal 1995 to $1.1 million in the comparable 1996 period due to the repayment of approximately $13 million of amounts outstanding on the Company's loan agreements with proceeds from the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation. With the exception of a provision for alternative minimum tax in fiscal 1996 and 1995, the Company did not record a provision or benefit for federal income taxes due to the Company's tax loss carryforward position. Fiscal 1995 compared to 1994 ---------------------------- Revenues from operations increased slightly to $58.6 million in fiscal 1995 compared to $56.5 million in fiscal 1994. The increase of $2.1 million (3.9%) is due to a stabilization in build rates experienced in the commercial airframe manufacturing industry after several years of substantial reduction in both order levels and build rates. Over the past several years, this reduced order activity has led to severe pricing pressures within the aircraft fastener market. Lower levels of unit pricing combined with increased manufacturing costs associated with inefficient production levels resulted in an operating loss of $1.9 million in

fiscal 1994. The operating income achieved in fiscal 1995 of $958,000 was the direct result of a cost reduction program instituted by the Company early in that fiscal year. The program resulted in cost savings of approximately $1.8 million. The interest income reported in fiscal 1994 was primarily due to tax refunds received during that year. Interest expense increased $259,000 in fiscal 1995 compared to fiscal 1994 due to an increase in borrowing rates experienced during the period. Results of Discontinued Operations In June 1993, the Company completed the sale of Hi-Shear Technology Corp. This corporation, together with Defense Systems Corporation, which had previously discontinued operations in 1991, comprised the Company's discontinued operations. The 1994 loss from discontinued operations of $2.6 million consisted of an addition to the reserve previously established in 1991 for the closing of Defense Systems Corp. This charge was due to additional expenses and legal costs incurred in maintaining the personnel and facilities required to pursue legal remedies regarding termination of two contracts with the U.S. Navy as well as an unexpected shortfall in amounts realized in the sale of material and equipment. Liquidity and Capital Resources The Company's principal sources of liquidity have consisted of cash provided by operating activities and, until the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation, bank financing. On February 26, 1996, the Company completed the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation to GFI Industries S.A. for a total purchase price of $46 million generating net proceeds from the sale, after deducting transaction costs, of $44.4 million. Of that amount, approximately $13 million was used to repay all amounts outstanding under the Company's loan agreements and the remaining balance was deposited in short term investment accounts. At May 31, 1996 the Company had $30.9 million remaining in cash and cash equivalents. With the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation the Company no longer has operating businesses and has announced its intention to liquidate and distribute the proceeds from the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation as well as any settlement received from the resolution of the Company's long standing dispute with the U.S. Navy. In this regard, the Company made an initial liquidating distribution to shareholders of approximately $23.4 million ($4.00 per share) on August 1, 1996. Under the terms of the agreement for the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation, the Company must maintain working capital of not less than $3,000,000 through March 31, 1997. Subsequent to that date the Company may distribute all remaining funds subject to the resolution of purchase price adjustments with GFI.
10-K9th Page of 31TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 9th
On May 31, 1995 the Company learned that its appeal of the default terminations filed by the Navy with regard to the two contracts being held by a subsidiary, Defense Systems Corporation had been sustained and converted to termination for the convenience of the government. On January 31, 1996 the Company filed damage claims against the U.S. Navy totaling $62.9 million. The government is currently in the process of auditing these claims. Therefore the total amount or timing of the recovery cannot be predicted at this time. The Company's cash requirements include (i) ongoing costs relating to pursuing the settlement of the Company's dispute with the U.S. Navy, (ii) professional fees and other costs associated with defending GFI's request for purchase price adjustments; and (iii) general and administrative expenses. The Company anticipates that existing cash and cash equivalents (after giving effect to the dividend paid on August 1, 1996) will be sufficient to satisfy the Company's cash requirements through the time of settlement with the U.S. Navy and GFI and final liquidation of the Company. Although management cannot currently estimate when these situations will be resolved, the Company has retained what it considers sufficient funds to allow it to pursue equitable settlements with regard to all open matters currently pending.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS Board of Directors and Stockholders Hi-Shear Industries Inc. North Hills, New York We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Hi-Shear Industries Inc. and Subsidiaries as of May 31, 1996 and 1995, and the related consolidated statements of operations,stockholders' equity and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended May 31, 1996, and the financial statement schedule listed in the Index at Item 14(a)(2) of this form 10-K. These financial statements and the financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and the financial statement schedule based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Hi-Shear Industries Inc. and Subsidiaries as of May 31, 1996 and 1995, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended May 31, 1996 in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. In addition, in our opinion, the financial statement schedule referred to above, when considered in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information required to be included therein. As discussed in the Commitments and Contingencies note to Consolidated Financial Statements, on May 31, 1995, the Company was notified that its appeal was successful regarding the default for terminations filed by the Navy related to certain contracts and that the contracts had been converted to terminations for the convenience of the government. On January 31, 1996, the Company filed damage claims totaling $62.9 million against the Navy with respect to these contracts. These claims are subject to government audit and their amount may be contested by the Navy. Therefore, the total amount or timing of the recovery cannot be predicted at this time and no recognition of income related to this claim has been made in the consolidated financial statements. On February 26, 1996, the Company sold its last operating asset and effectively ceased operations. The Company is presently in the process of liquidation, and management's plans in regard to this matter are further discussed in the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Note to Consolidated Financial Statements.

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Summary of Significant Accounting Policies The significant accounting policies followed in the preparation of the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Hi-Shear Industries Inc. and Subsidiaries (the "Company") are summarized below: Basis of Presentation. The financial statements reflect the operating results of Hi-Shear Corporation and Subsidiaries ("HSC") until its sale on February 26, 1996. The financial statements also reflect the results of the former subsidiaries, Hi-Shear Technology Corp. ("HSTC") and Defense Systems Corporation ("DSC"), as discontinued operations. Respective operating results of these subsidiaries for all prior periods presented have been segregated along with related taxes, and reported as discontinued operations on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. Net assets of discontinued operations have been segregated on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. With the sale of HSC,the Company no longer conducts an operating business. The Company currently anticipates that upon final resolution of its claims against the U.S. Navy, it will complete the distribution of its assets to stockholders and seek stockholder approval to dissolve the Company. Principles of Consolidation. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Hi-Shear Industries Inc. and its majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Use of Estimates and Assumptions. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Cash and Equivalents. The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The cash balances on deposit are held principally at one financial institution and exceed insurable amounts. The Company believes it mitigates its risks by investing in or through a major financial institution. Cash and cash equivalents are reflected in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet at amounts considered by management to reasonably approximate fair value. Inventory Valuation. Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined by the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. Property, Plant and Equipment. Land, buildings, and equipment are carried at cost. For financial reporting purposes,

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - (Continued) depreciation expense is provided on a straight line basis, using estimated useful lives of 2 to 40 years for buildings and improvements, and 3 to 10 years for machinery and equipment. Accelerated methods have been used for tax purposes where permitted. Upon disposition, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and the resulting gain or loss is reflected in earnings for the period. Income Taxes. The Company and its subsidiaries file consolidated federal and state income tax returns. Deferred provision is made for income taxes resulting from timing differences in the recognition of income and expense for tax and financial reporting purposes. Effective June 1, 1993 the Company adopted Statement of Financial Standards No. 109 "Accounting for Income Taxes" which requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences and net operating loss (NOL) and tax credit carryforwards. Under this statement, deferred income taxes are established based on enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when temporary differences are scheduled to reverse and NOL and tax credit carryforwards are expected to be utilized. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The adoption of Statement 109 did not have a material effect on the 1994 consolidated financial statements. Earnings Per Share. Earnings per share are computed based on weighted average number of common shares outstanding (excludes treasury stock) during the periods. The effect of common stock equivalents is not significant for any periods presented. Sale of Subsidiary On February 26, 1996, pursuant to approval received at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders on February 23, 1996, the Company sold its aerospace fastener subsidiary Hi-Shear Corporation and its subsidiaries to GFI Industries S.A. of Belfort, France for $46 million in cash. The sale was treated as a sale of stock for accounting purposes. As a result, the Company recognized a gain of approximately $1.8 million in its statement of operations and the related balance sheet accounts of Hi-Shear Corporation and its affiliated companies were removed from the Company's consolidated balance sheet. The sales price is subject to adjustment based upon a review of the closing balance sheet of Hi-Shear Corporation and verification by GFI of the net asset value as required under the terms of the sale. To date, the Company and GFI have been unable to reach an agreement on the net asset value with GFI requesting downward adjustments to the sales price totaling $6.4 million. Management of the Company firmly believes that the closing balance sheet as presented to GFI is in accordance with the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement. The disagreement is being submitted to arbitration as required under the Stock Purchase Agreement. The parties are currently in the preliminary

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) stages of selecting an arbitrator. Under the terms of the agreement for the sale of HSC, the Company is restricted from distributing to its stockholders, by means of dividend or otherwise, at least $3.0 million of the purchase price through March 31, 1997. Subsequent to that date, the Company may distribute all remaining funds subject to the resolution of purchase price adjustments, if any, with GFI. See Commitments and Contingencies in notes to consolidated financial statements. Discontinued Operations In fiscal 1991, the Company adopted a plan to discontinue its Space and Defense operations, which were comprised of HSTC and DSC. A provision of $22.4 million (net of income tax benefit of $2.6 million) was recorded in fiscal 1991 to write down the net assets of these businesses to their estimated realizable values, record estimated transaction costs and report operating results during the phaseout period. During fiscal 1992, management reevaluated HSTC and decided to reinstate this subsidiary to continuing operations. An amount of $3.4 million previously reserved for discontinued operations of HSTC was reallocated to provide for additional losses associated with the disposal of DSC. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 1993, the Company entered into an agreement to sell HSTC to a newly formed corporation led by two managers of the subsidiary. An amount of $6.2 million was recorded in fiscal 1993 to provide for losses associated with the disposal of HSTC. The sale of this facility for an amount of $4.1 million was successfully concluded in June 1993. Proceeds from the sale were used to pay down bank debt. During fiscal 1994, the Company recorded an additional provision for loss on disposal of discontinued operations on DSC due to additional expenses, legal costs and lower than anticipated proceeds on the sale of material and equipment. Loan Agreements Prior to February 26, 1996, the Company maintained a revolving line of credit which provided for borrowings tied to a percentage of eligible accounts receivable and inventory with a maximum borrowing capacity of $15 million. Borrowings under this agreement were collateralized by substantially all of the assets of HSC. Concurrent with the sale of HSC, the Company used a portion of the proceeds of the sale to pay off this loan obligation as well as a term loan facility maintained by a foreign subsidiary of HSC. At May 31, 1995, the Company had no credit facilities or other loan agreements.

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) As of May 31, 1996, the Company had a federal net operating loss carryforward of approximately $8,400,000 which expires between 2006 and 2009, state net operating loss carryforward of approximately $4,900,000 expiring between 1998 and 2000, foreign tax credit carryforward of $39,000 expiring in 1997 and alternative minimum tax credit carryforward of $369,000 with no expiration. Pension and Incentive Compensation Plans Prior to February 26, 1996, the Company maintained a defined benefit pension plan and deferred investment profit sharing plan covering substantially all of its eligible domestic employees. The Company also had contractual arrangements with certain key employees which provided for supplemental retirement benefits. The Company's policy was to fund pension costs annually based on accrued amounts and to amortize past service pension costs over a thirty-year period. Effective with the sale of HSC on February 26, 1996, these plans and related liabilities and assets were assumed by the purchaser of HSC. For the fiscal year ended May 31, 1996, the Company incurred total pension costs of approximately $365,000. The components of such costs are not available as the Company did not prepare actuarial calculations for the fiscal year ended May 31, 1996. The following financial information regarding these plans, relates to periods prior to the sale. Net periodic pension cost for fiscal years 1995 and 1994 consists of the following: Fiscal Years Ended May 31, -------------------------------- 1995 1994 --------------- --------------- Funded Unfunded Funded Unfunded ------ -------- ------ -------- (000 Omitted) Service cost for benefits earned during the year $ - $107 $ - $171 Interest cost on projected benefit obligation..... 522 185 520 152 Actual return on plan assets (166) - (185) - Asset gain (loss) (321) 38 (317) 6 Net amortization 95 72 (10) 72 ----- ----- ----- ----- Net periodic pension cost... $130 $402 $8 $401 ===== ===== ===== =====

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) Pension and Incentive Compensation Plans - (Continued) The following table sets forth the funded status of the Company's domestic pension plans: As of the Fiscal Year Ended ----------------------------------- May 31, 1995 ----------------- Funded Unfunded ------ -------- (000 Omitted) Actuarial present value of: Vested benefit obligation $6,877 $2,336 Accumulated benefit obligation............. 6,877 2,549 Projected benefit obligation............. 6,877 2,549 Plan assets at fair value, primarily mutual funds. 5,489 - Projected benefit oblig- ation in excess of plan assets............ $(1,388) $(2,549) Unrecognized net (asset) obligation............... (138) 503 Unrecognized net loss..................... 1,932 681 ------- ------- Pension asset (liability).. $406 $(1,365) ======= ======= The weighted average discount rate in 1995 was 8.00% for all plans. The expected long-term rate of return on funded plan assets was 9%. Plan assets for the unfunded plan consist of life insurance policies on the lives of the plan participants; accounting principles do not permit recognition of such policies as plan assets. In accordance with the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 87 "Employers Accounting for Pensions," the Company recorded additional minimum pension liabilities totaling $2,978,000 at May 31, 1995. This amount was included in "Other accrued liabilities" on the Company's balance sheet. This liability was offset by an intangible asset of $484,000 resulting in a cumulative reduction to retained earnings of $2,494,000 as of May 31, 1995. HSC had a discretionary incentive compensation plan which provided current and deferred compensation to various employees based upon the achievement of specific levels of operational earnings and other financial performance criteria. The amounts charged to expense under these plans were $0, $62,000 and $75,000 for the years ended May 31, 1996, 1995 and 1994, respectively.

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) Pension and Incentive Compensation Plans - (Continued) Pension coverage for employees of Hi-Shear Corporation's foreign subsidary was provided through a separate plan. Obligations under this plan were provided for by depositing funds with a trustee. The 1996, 1995 and 1994 pension cost for the plan was approximately $150,000, $197,000 and $190,000, respectively. In 1995, approximately $470,000 represented the excess of the accumulated pension cost over the payment of contributions to the pension fund and was included in "Other accrued liabilities" on the Company's balance sheet. Contributions to Hi-Shear Corporation's Deferred Investment Profit Sharing Plan under Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code were $285,000, $444,000 and $399,000 for the years ended May 31, 1996, 1995 and 1994, respectively. Subsequent to the sale of HSC, the Company transferred the balances of its corporate employees who participated in this plan to a new Hi-Shear Industries Inc. 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan. Company contributions to this Plan for the year ended May 31, 1996 were $28,000. Capital Stock Common stock outstanding at May 31, 1996 does not include 284,222 shares reserved under the Company's stock option incentive plan.

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) Operating Segment Information and Concentration of Credit Risk Prior to the sale of Hi-Shear Corporation on February 26, 1996, the Company operated primarily in one industry segment, the manufacture and sale of precision fastening systems and components. The Company serviced its worldwide customer base from two manufacturing facilities located in Torrance California and Rugby England. Financial information for fiscal 1996, includes the operating activity for the nine month period prior to the sale. Sales and transfers between geographic areas were generally priced to recover cost plus an appropriate mark-up for profit. Sales and transfers from domestic to foreign locations amounted to $1,110,000, $1,566,000, and $579,000 for fiscal 1996, 1995 and 1994, respectively. Sales and transfers from foreign to domestic locations were not material for any period presented. Operating profit is revenue less related costs and direct and allocated operating expenses, excluding interest and corporate expenses. Corporate assets are those assets maintained for general purposes, principally cash and cash equivalents and corporate facilities. In fiscal 1996, 1995 and 1994, approximately 13%, 17% and 15% respectively, of revenue was attributable to a single customer who purchases through several different divisions and plants. A summary of the Company's operations by geographic area is presented below: (Dollars in thousands) 1996 1995 1994 ------------------------------------------------------------ Net Revenues to Unaffiliated Customers: United States $36,547 $46,547 $46,162 Foreign 9,853 12,092 10,303 ------- ------- ------- $46,400 $58,639 $56,465 ======= ======= ======= Operating Profit: United States $2,518 $3,233 $577 Foreign 189 341 422 ------- ------- ------- 2,707 3,574 999 Gain on Sale of Subsidiary 1,768 - - Corporate Expenses (2,493) (2,616) (2,874) Interest, net (637) (1,292) (939) ------- ------- ------- Profit (Loss) before income taxes $1,345 $(334) $(2,814) ======= ======= ======= Identifiable Assets United States $ - $37,146 $39,157 Foreign - 9,000 7,812 Corporate 32,748 3,368 2,146 ------- ------- ------- $32,748 $49,514 $49,115 ======= ======= =======

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) Operating Segment Information and Concentration of Credit Risk - (Continued) Foreign operations were conducted primarily in Europe. Certain products were manufactured in the United States and exported to foreign customers. Export sales from domestic operations were $4,700,000, $8,300,000 and $7,200,000 for the years ended May 31, 1996, 1995 and 1994, respectively. The Company sold aerospace and transportation fastening systems worldwide, primarily to major aircraft and automotive manufacturers. Concentrations of credit risk were limited due to the large number of customers which comprise the Company's customer base. Credit was extended based upon an evaluation of each customer's financial condition, and generally, collateral was not required. Credit losses, if any, have been provided for in the financial statements, and have been consistently within management's expectations. Commitments and Contingencies In March 1991, the Company terminated the operations of one of its subsidiaries, Defense Systems Corporation in Reno, Nevada. As a result of shutting down operations at this facility, two contracts with the U.S. Navy were terminated for default. The Company appealed the default terminations and on May 31, 1995 its appeals from the default terminations was sustained by the armed services Board of Contract Appeals. This decision released the Company from any obligation to repay progress payments received under the contracts, and entitled the Company to recover contract and additional costs expended in connection with the contracts. On January 31, 1996, the Company filed damage claims against the U.S. Navy totaling $62.9 million. These claims are subject to government audit and their amount may be contested by the U.S. Navy. Therefore the total amount or timing of the recovery cannot be predicted at this time. The Company had previously written off additional costs associated with this matter due to the uncertainty of the outcome, however, since the rendering of the favorable decision, the Company began accruing additional costs incurred, primarily claims preparation and legal, as claims receivable. At May 31, 1996 claims receivable of $1.4 million are included as other long term assets on the balance sheet, as management believes collection of such amounts are probable. Since the ultimate recovery of these claims cannot presently be determined, no recognition from any settlement proposal, other than the claim receivable noted above,has been reflected in the accompanying financial statments. In connection with the sale of its aeropsace fastener subsidiary Hi- Shear Corporation in February 1996, the Company and the purchaser have been conducting financial reviews dealing with the valuation of certain assets and liabilities contained in the closing balance sheet of HSC and its related subsidiaries. To date, the Company and GFI have been unable to reach an agreement

HI-SHEAR INDUSTRIES INC. NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued) Commitments and Contingencies - (Continued) on the net asset value with GFI requesting downward adjustments to the sales price totaling $6.4 million. Management of the Company firmly believes that the closing balance sheet as presented to GFI is in accordance with the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement. The disagreement is being submitted to arbitration as required under the Stock Purchase Agreement. The parties are currently in the preliminary stages of selecting an arbitrator. Management of the Company does not believe that adjustments, if any, resulting from this arbitration will have a material adverse impact on its financial position. Due to the uncertainty of the outcome of this arbitration, no adjustments which may occur as a result of the arbitration have been recognized in the Company's May 31, 1996 financial statements. The Company is involved in various other actions arising in the normal course of business with respect to contracts and employment claims. Management, after taking into consideration legal counsel's evaluation of all contingent matters believes that the disposition of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position, net income or cash flows. The Company's operations were conducted from leased facilities, all of which were under operating leases which expired at various dates through 2004. The Company also had operating leases covering machinery and equipment which provided for the Company to pay operating expenses. All leases, other than the lease of corporate office space, were assigned to the purchaser of HSC or terminated. In addition to related property taxes and insurance, the Company made net rental payments of approximately, $950,000, $1,278,000 and $1,260,000, for the years ended May 31, 1996, 1995 and 1994, respectively. At May 31, 1996 the Company's commitment for future minimum lease payments under a noncancellable operating leases is $138,000. Subsequent Event On August 1, 1996, the Company made an initial liguidating distribution of approximately $23,400,000 ($4.00 per share) to stockholders of record on July 25, 1996.
