NOTE A.  GENERAL

         The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of
Daktronics, Inc. and its subsidiaries (Company). Intercompany accounts and
transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

         The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements
have been prepared in accordance with instructions for Form 10-Q and,
accordingly, do not include all information and footnotes required by generally
accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion
of management, the unaudited financial statements contain all adjustments,
consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary to present fairly the
consolidated financial position of the Company as of July 29, 2000 and the
results of its operations and cash flows for the three months ended July 29,
2000 and July 31, 1999. These results may not be indicative of the results to be
expected for the full fiscal year.

         These statements should be read in conjunction with the financial
statements and footnotes included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K
for the year ended April 29, 2000, previously filed with the Commission.

         Earnings per common share has been computed on the basis of the
weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each period
presented. A reconciliation of the income and common stock share amounts used in
the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the three
months ended July 29, 2000 and July 31, 1999 follows:

Item 2.

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


         The following discussion highlights the principal factors affecting
changes in financial condition and results of operations.

         This discussion should be read in conjunction with the accompanying
Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes to Consolidated Financial
Statements.

         In addition to statements of fact, this report contains forward-looking
statements reflecting the Company's expectations or beliefs concerning future
events which could materially affect Company performance in the future. The
Company cautions that these and similar statements involve risk and
uncertainties including changes in economic and market conditions, seasonality
of business in certain market niches, impact of large orders, management of
growth, and other risks noted in the Company's Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) filings which may cause actual results to differ materially.
Forward-looking statements are made in the context of information available as
of the date stated. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise
such statements to reflect new circumstances or unanticipated events as they
occur.

GENERAL

         The Company designs, manufactures and sells a wide range of
computer-programmable information display systems to customers in a variety of
markets throughout the world. The Company focuses its sales and marketing
efforts on markets rather than products. Major categories of markets include
sport, business and government.

         The Company's net sales and profitability historically have fluctuated
due to the impact of large product orders, such as display systems for the
Olympic Games and major league sports, as well as the seasonality of the sports
market. The Company's gross margins on large product orders tend to fluctuate
more than those for small standard orders. Large product orders that involve
competitive bidding and substantial subcontract work for product installation
generally have lower gross margins. Although the Company follows the percentage
of completion method of recognizing revenues for these large orders, the Company
nevertheless has experienced fluctuations in operating results and expects that
its future results of operations may be subject to similar fluctuations.

         The Company operates on a 52 - 53 week fiscal year, with fiscal years
ending on the Saturday closest to April 30 of each year. The first three
quarters end on the Saturday closest to July 31, October 31 and January 31.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

         The following table sets forth the percentage of net sales represented
by items included in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Income for the
periods indicated:

NET SALES

         Net sales were $34.5 million for the three months ended July 29, 2000
compared to $31.5 million for the three months ended July 31, 1999. The increase
in net sales was due primarily to increases in net sales in the auto racing,
federation, high school, and major league niches of the sports markets, all
niches of the business markets, and the voting and aviation niches of the
government markets.

GROSS PROFIT

         Gross profit increased to $10.3 million for the three months ended July
29, 2000 from $8.2 million for the three months ended July 31, 1999. The
increase was due to increased sales and continued improvement in gross profit
percentage of sales as the Company continued its cost improvement programs,
including product standardization.

OPERATING EXPENSES

         Selling expenses were $4.5 million for the three months ended July 29,
2000 and $3.3 million for the three months ended July 31, 1999. As a percent of
sales, selling expenses increased 2.5%. The increase was due to the addition of
sales staff and increased selling activity.

         General and administrative expenses were $1.2 million for the three
months ended July 29, 2000 compared to $913,000 for the three months ended July
31, 1999. The increase was due to increases in salary and personnel to support
company growth.

         Product design and development expenses increased to $1.3 million for
the three months ended July 29, 2000 from $1.0 million for the three months
ended July 31, 1999. The increase was due to continued development and
improvement of the family of ProStar(R) VideoPlus displays, and the continued
expansion and improvement of existing products.

INTEREST INCOME

         The Company occasionally sells products on an installment basis or in
exchange for advertising revenues from the scoreboard or display, both of which
result in long-term receivables. Interest income increased to $196,000 for the
three months ended July 29, 2000 from $91,000 for the three months ended July
31, 1999.

INTEREST EXPENSE

         Interest expense increased to $286,000 for the three months ended July
29, 2000 from $264,000 for the three months ended July 31, 1999. The increase
was the result of an increase in average loan balances.

INCOME TAX EXPENSE

         Income tax expense as a percentage of income before income taxes was
39% for the three months ended July 29, 2000 and was 40% for the three months
ended July 31, 1999.

NET INCOME

         Net income increased to $2.1 million from $1.8 million for the three
months ended July 29, 2000 and July 31, 1999, respectively. The increase was due
to the increase in net sales and the increase in gross profit percentage.


                                       10
<PAGE>


         Management believes that one of the principal factors that will affect
net sales and income growth is the Company's ability to increase the marketing
of its current and future products in existing markets and expand the marketing
of its products to new markets.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

         Working capital was $21.8 million at July 29, 2000 and $20.7 million at
April 29, 2000. Working capital provided by net income, depreciation and
amortization was offset by purchases of property and equipment and repayment of
long-term debt. The Company has historically financed working capital needs
through a combination of cash flow from operations and borrowings under bank
credit agreements.

         Cash provided by operations for the three months ended July 29, 2000
was $2.5 million. Net income of $2.1 million plus depreciation and amortization
of $800,000 were offset by an increase in inventories including costs and
estimated earnings in excess of billings on uncompleted contracts, an increase
in accounts payable and an increase in billings in excess of cost and estimated
earnings on uncompleted contracts. Cash used by investing activities consisted
of $1.7 million of purchases of property and equipment. Cash provided by
financing activities included $1.6 million net borrowings under the Company's
line of credit. Cash used for financing activities consisted of $564,000 of
repayment of long-term debt.

         The Company has used and expects to continue to use cash reserves and
bank borrowings to meet its short-term working capital requirements. On large
product orders, the time between order acceptance and project completion may
extend up to 12 months depending on the amount of custom work and the customer's
delivery needs. The Company often receives a down payment or progress payments
on these product orders. To the extent that these payments are not sufficient to
fund the costs and other expenses associated with these orders, the Company uses
working capital and bank borrowings to finance these cash requirements.

         The Company's product development activities include the enhancement of
existing products and the development of new products from existing
technologies. Product development expenses were $1.3 million for the three
months ended July 29, 2000 and $1.0 million for the three months ended July 31,
1999. The Company intends to continue to incur these expenditures to develop new
display products using various display technologies to offer higher resolution
and more cost effective and energy efficient displays. The Company also intends
to continue developing software applications for its display controllers to
enable these products to continue to meet the needs and expectations of the
marketplace.

         The Company has a credit agreement with a bank. The credit agreement
provides for a $20.0 million line of credit which includes up to $2.0 million
for standby letters of credit. The line of credit is at the LIBOR rate plus
1.55% (8.17% at July 29, 2000) and is due on October 1, 2002. As of July 29,
2000, $8.8 million had been drawn on the line of credit and no standby letters
of credit had been issued by the bank. The credit agreement is unsecured and
requires the Company to meet certain covenants. Financial covenants include the
maintenance of tangible net worth of at least $23 million, a minimum liquidity
ratio, a limit on dividends and distributions, and a minimum adjusted fixed
charge coverage ratio.

         The Company is sometimes required to obtain performance bonds for
display installations. The Company currently has a bonding line available
through an insurance company that provides for an aggregate of $100 million in
bonded work outstanding. At July 29, 2000, the Company had $3.2 million of
bonded work outstanding against this line.

         The Company believes that if its growth continues, it may need to
increase the amount of its credit needs. The Company anticipates that it will be
able to obtain any needed funds under commercially reasonable terms from its
current lender. The Company believes that cash from operations, from its
existing or increased bank borrowings, and its current working capital will be
adequate to meet the cash requirement of its operations in the foreseeable
future.
