CommScope, Inc. (NYSE: CTV) today announced fourth quarter results for the period ended December 31, 2004, which includes results for the Connectivity Solutions business acquired in January 2004 from Avaya Inc. The Company reported sales of $295.6 million and a net loss of $7.1 million, or $0.13 per share, for the fourth quarter. The reported net loss includes special, after-tax charges of $9.1 million related to the organizational and cost-reduction initiatives at the Omaha, Nebraska manufacturing facility. Excluding this charge, adjusted earnings were $2.0 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. A reconciliation of reported GAAP earnings per share to adjusted results for the fourth quarter and calendar year is attached.

For the fourth quarter of 2003, CommScope reported sales of $153.7 million and a net loss of $17.2 million, or $0.29 per share. The fourth quarter 2003 earnings reflected after-tax equity in losses of OFS BrightWave, LLC of $20.9 million, or $0.35 per share.

"Fourth quarter results were mixed," stated Frank M. Drendel, CommScope Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our sales were better than expected. However, as previously announced, ongoing cost pressures negatively affected our fourth quarter operating margin. We announced price increases and the restructuring of the Omaha manufacturing facility in the fourth quarter of 2004. During 2005, we intend to work diligently to offset higher costs and improve under-performing product lines."

Sales for the fourth quarter of 2004 rose 2.9% year over year on a pro forma basis. Below is a sales summary that reflects fourth quarter 2004 sales compared to the third quarter of 2004 and the fourth quarter of 2003 (pro forma). The pro forma sales information includes the historical results of the Connectivity Solutions business as operated and publicly reported by Avaya Inc.

CommScope's Cable segment sales rose approximately 6% year over year to $162.9 million and increased in all major product categories. Broadband/Video sales rose year over year mainly due to strong international growth while Local Area Network (LAN) sales rose primarily due to strong project business. Cable segment sales decreased sequentially primarily due to lower Uniprise(TM) LAN sales, which is typical in the seasonally slower fourth quarter.

Strong SYSTIMAX(R) Solutions sales drove the year-over-year growth in the Connectivity Solutions segment. SYSTIMAX Solutions(TM) sales increased approximately 15% year over year with solid domestic and international growth, but were substantially offset by lower sales of Integrated Cabinet Solutions (ICS) and ExchangeMAX(R) products. SYSTIMAX sales declined sequentially as expected in the traditionally slower fourth quarter.

Total international sales rose 21% year over year to $110.1 million or approximately 37% of total company sales.

"Our year-over-year sales growth reflects higher prices for most products, improved international business and continued expansion in the enterprise market, which includes SYSTIMAX sales from our Connectivity Solutions segment and Uniprise LAN sales from our Cable segment," noted Drendel.

Overall external orders booked in the fourth quarter of 2004 were $306.9 million. Cable segment orders were $152.3 million and Connectivity Solutions segment orders were $154.6 million.

Other Fourth Quarter 2004 Highlights

* SYSTIMAX Solutions introduced GigaSPEED(R) X10D, a revolutionary copper cabling system
capable of supporting 10 Gigabit Ethernet.  The Company believes that GigaSPEED X10D
is the most advanced Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cabling solution available
and is the only "end-to-end" solution that:

       -- Fully complies with the latest Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE) 802.3an task force guidelines for 10GBASE-T,

       -- Provides published guaranteed channel performance (not just cable)
for short and long channels up to a full 100-meter, four-connector channel,

       -- Has been tested and qualified in what is viewed as worst-case
installation channel test configurations, known as the "6-around-1" cable
configuration, and -- Comes backed by a 20-year Extended Warranty and Applications Assurance.

     * Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2004 rose to 22.8%, compared to 20.2%
in the fourth quarter of 2003.  Gross margin increased year over 
year primarily due to the acquisition of the Connectivity Solutions business.

     * Gross margin declined from the third quarter 2004 level of 25.2% primarily
due to lower sales and manufacturing volumes, an unfavorable sales mix and higher material
costs.   Sales mix negatively affected gross margin sequentially in three
key ways: 1) a lower proportion of SYSTIMAX Solutions sales, which has above
Company average gross margins; 2) the international/domestic sales mix; and
3) the product mix within SYSTIMAX Solutions.  The Company also experienced
higher sequential costs for plastics and other polymers as well as certain metals.

     * Total depreciation and amortization expense was $15.4 million for
the fourth quarter of 2004, which included $3.8 million of intangibles amortization
and deferred financing fee amortization of $0.7 million.

     * Net cash provided by operating activities in the fourth quarter of
2004 was $10.2 million, which included approximately $2.8 million in cash
costs related to the previously announced organizational and cost-reduction initiatives
at the Omaha facility.

     * Capital spending for the fourth quarter of 2004 was $5.5 million.

    Cost Reduction and Organizational Initiatives

Connectivity Solutions Manufacturing, Inc. (CSMI), an indirect, wholly- owned manufacturing subsidiary of CommScope, continues to implement the previously-announced organizational and cost-reduction initiatives at its Omaha facility. These initiatives are expected to be substantially in place by mid-year 2005. The primary components of the CSMI restructuring initiatives are: a) a reorganized management structure that creates more focused stand-alone management organizations for cable, apparatus and cabinets; b) re-engineered, simplified business practices and manufacturing processes; and c) a reduced number of management, production and support personnel. As a result of these initiatives, CommScope incurred approximately $14.2 million in pretax restructuring costs during the fourth quarter of 2004, which includes approximately $7.3 million of noncash costs, primarily equipment impairment. CSMI is also developing a plan for under-utilized real estate.

During the first half of 2005, the Company expects to recognize additional pretax restructuring costs of $4 to $6 million related to completing these initiatives. Annualized pretax savings resulting from the restructuring plan are projected to be $20 to $25 million once the initiatives are fully in place.

The 2.4 million square foot Omaha site is the largest production facility for SYSTIMAX, ExchangeMAX and ICS products. The facility was purchased from Avaya in conjunction with the acquisition of the Connectivity Solutions business on January 31, 2004.

Full Year Results

CommScope reported sales of $1,152.7 million for calendar year 2004, and net income of $75.8 million, or $1.15 per diluted share. Our 2004 results include the net gain on the OFS BrightWave transaction with The Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd, charges related to the acquisition and restructuring of the Connectivity Solutions business as well as a loss on the early extinguishment of debt. Please see the attached reconciliation of reported GAAP earnings per share to adjusted results.

Gross margin for calendar year 2004 was 22.1% and operating margin was 0.5%, including special charges related to the acquisition and restructuring of Connectivity Solutions. Excluding these charges, adjusted gross margin was approximately 23.4% and adjusted operating margin was approximately 4.1%.

Cash flow from operations in 2004 was $108.3 million and reflects depreciation and amortization of $60.5 million. Capital spending was $13.2 million for the year and the Company ended 2004 with $177.3 million in cash and cash equivalents.

2005 Financial Outlook

"Looking ahead to 2005, we expect sales of $1.2-$1.3 billion, primarily driven by a modest increase in sales volume as well as price increases," said CommScope Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Jearld L. Leonhardt. "However, we think material and SG&A costs will be somewhat higher than our earlier projections.

"Based on this revenue outlook, we believe operating margins will rise to the 5.0%-5.5% level for the full calendar year 2005, excluding special charges. Operating margins are expected to be below our previous guidance of 6% primarily as a result of higher costs. Current analyst consensus estimates for the full year are generally in line with our revised 2005 expectations," Leonhardt said.

The Company also announced other financial guidance for calendar year 2005:

* Effective tax rate of approximately 28%-32%

     * Depreciation and amortization of approximately $60 million

     * Capital spending of approximately $30 million or less

     * Working capital expected to grow with sales

     * Omaha restructuring cost of approximately $4-$6 million to complete the

       previously announced initiatives

"Historically, our sales and operating performance have been somewhat seasonal," noted Leonhardt. "Performance is typically weakest in the first and fourth quarters and strongest in third and second quarters. Consistent with this pattern, we expect the first quarter of 2005 to have the lowest sales and operating margin of the year with expected sales around $280-$300 million and operating margin in the 1%-2% range, excluding special charges.

"However, as expected sales volumes increase and we continue the Omaha restructuring program, we believe operating margins should improve significantly in the second and third quarters of 2005, assuming a relatively stable raw material environment," Leonhardt stated.

    (b) In March 2004, the Company issued $250 million of 1% convertible
        senior subordinated debentures due 2024, which are convertible into
        shares of common stock at a conversion rate of 45.9770 shares per
        $1,000 principal amount representing a conversion price of $21.75 per
        share.  These debentures are convertible into shares of CommScope
        common stock under specific circumstances as described in the
        Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2004.   For the
        three months ended December 31, 2004, the debentures were antidilutive
        as a result of the net loss during such period and therefore
        were excluded from the calculation of net loss per share, assuming
        dilution.

    (c) For the three months ended December 31, 2004 and 2003 and the twelve
        months ended December 31, 2003, stock options were antidilutive as a
        result of the net loss during such period and were therefore excluded
        from the calculation of net loss per share, assuming dilution.

    CommScope management believes that presenting earnings per share
    information excluding special after-tax items noted above, principally
    relating to the OFS BrightWave, LLC transaction and CommScope's
    acquisition and restructuring of the Connectivity Solutions business
    provides meaningful information to investors because the adjusted results
    eliminate special charges which are not related to CommScope's ongoing
    operations, and therefore allows investors to more easily compare results
    period to period.
