Summary of First Quarter 2011 Operating Results
Revenue of $884.3 million was down $9.7 million or 1.1%from the comparable prior year quarter, adjusted for thedeconsolidation of GLS, which recorded $159.8 million of revenuefor the first quarter of 2010.  The comparable revenue declinewas driven primarily by the loss of the Life Cycle Contract Support(LCCS)-Army contract, which transitioned in November 2010, and thecompletion of both the African Peacekeeping (APK) task order inSomalia and the Qatar guard contract under our Security Servicesbusiness.  Lower volume on the Mine Resistant Ambush ProtectedVehicle (MRAP) program and the International Civilian PoliceProgram (CivPol) also contributed to the decline.  Thesedeclines were offset by revenue gains from the ContingencyOperations business, primarily from LOGCAP IV contract, whichproduced revenue of $379.3 million, a 17.0% increase over the firstquarter 2010. Additionally, the Company experienced revenueincreases from its Training and Mentoring business, primarily fromthe Combined Security Transition Command Afghanistan (CSTC-A),Multinational Security Transition Command-Iraq (MNSTC-I) contracts,and the addition of the Afghanistan National Police-Ministry ofInterior (ANP-MoI) contract (formally NATO TrainingMission-Afghanistan), which ramped-up during the quarter to replacethe CivPol Afghanistan work under the Department of State.Additionally, revenue in the period benefited from increased demandfor secure aviation transport under the INL Air Wing contract withthe Department of State.

Net income attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $4.9million, represents a decrease of $14.6 million from the comparableperiod in 2010. The decline primarily relates to increased Selling,general and administrative expenses due to cost associated with therestructuring announced in January, higher amortization ofintangibles resulting from the Merger and increased interestexpenses associated with the company’s newdebt.   

Adjusted EBITDA of $55.6 million for the first quarter 2011 wasflat to the comparable period in 2010. 

Global Stabilization and Development Solutions (GSDS)First Quarter Highlights:
GSDS segment revenue of $575.5 million represents 65.1%of our total revenue for the three months ended April 1, 2011, anincrease of 3.8% over the first quarter 2010.  GSDS reportedadjusted EBITDA of $26.4 million for the first quarter 2011, an18.2% increase from the comparable period in 2010.  Theperformance was primarily driven by the following:

Contingency Operations:

  • Strong continued growth from the LOGCAP IV program with a 17%revenue increase from first quarter 2010 and improved award feescores on the Afghanistan task order which resulted in $14.1million award fee revenue during the period.  
  • The Air Force Contract Augmentation Program (AFCAP) baseoperations contract contributed to revenue and adjusted EBITDAgrowth offset by the completion of the APK Somalia taskorder.

Training and Mentoring:

  • Revenue increased from the new ANP-MoI contract, increasedvolume under the CivPol-Afghanistan National Police task order aswell as continued operations under the CSTC-A and MNSTC-Icontracts.  This increase was partially offset by a decline inthe CivPol program primarily from the transition of the Afghanistanwork from the Department of State contract to the new ANP-MoIcontract with the Department of Defense and lower volume inIraq. 

Security Services:

  • Both Revenue and adjusted EBITDA were negatively impactedunder the Security Services business area with the completion ofthe Qatar security guard contract in 2010 and reduced demand underthe Worldwide Personal Protective Services business.

Global Platform Support Solutions (GPSS) First QuarterHighlights:
GPSS segment revenue of $306.2 million represents 34.6%of our total revenue for the three months ended April 1, 2011, adecrease of 9.8% over the first quarter 2010.  GPSS alsoreported adjusted EBITDA of $18.8 million for the first quarter2010, a 28.2% decrease from the comparable period in 2010. The results were primarily driven by the following:

Aviation:

  • Revenue was negatively impacted by the loss of the LCCS-Armycontract in late 2010, partially offset by performance under thenew Fort Campbell and Saudi Arabia MSS contracts as well as volumeunder the Counter-Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office (CNTPO)contract.  

Air Operations:

  • Revenue increased due to demand for secure aviation transportin Iraq and Afghanistan, partially offset by the completion ofconstruction work in Iraq in 2010. Profitability decreased,compared to first quarter of 2010, as a result of the revenuemix.

Operations and Maintenance:

  • Revenue and adjusted EBITDA were negatively impacted in thefirst quarter of 2011, compared to the first quarter of 2010,primarily driven by lower volume and profitability under the MRAPprogram.

Global Linguist Solutions (GLS) First QuarterHighlights:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $4.7M for the first quarter of 2011 was down$1.1 million or 19.0% from the comparable quarter in 2010 and wasdriven by a reduction in deployed linguists in support of U.S.troop levels in Iraq, which has trended lower during the pastyear.

Total backlog as of April 1, 2011 of $4.3 billion represents adecrease of approximately $488.0 million since December 31, 2010.The decrease was primarily due to timing of orders.
 
Cash From Operating Activities (CFOA) of $25.8 million for thefirst quarter of 2011 benefited from $48.1 million in tax refunds,including $46.0 million from an approved change in accountingmethod, but was negatively impacted by an increase in workingcapital primarily driven by higher DSO from the CivPolcontract.
