The total value forthis thirty-six month contract is approximately $1.0 billion.
  • In December 2010, DI was notified of the award feedetermination on the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (“LOGCAPIV”) contract related to operations in Kuwait and Afghanistan.Profit for the quarter benefited $3.7 million from the Afghanistanaward, which represented the period of performance from the startof the contract through December 2010.
  • In December 2010 and January 2011, DI received tax refundsfrom the Internal Revenue Service in the amounts of $34.1 millionand $46.0 million, respectively. The combined $80.1 million, $5.5million higher than expected, related to an approved change inaccounting method.

Summary of Fourth Quarter Calendar Year 2010 OperatingResults
Revenue of $856.7 million was up 16.3% from thecomparable prior year quarter, adjusted for the deconsolidation ofGLS upon the completion of the Merger, which recorded $177.5million of revenue for the fourth quarter of Calendar Year 2009.Revenue gains were driven by the Contingency Operations business,primarily from LOGCAP IV operations, which produced revenue of$379.1 million, doubling revenues recorded in the fourth quarter ofCalendar Year 2009. Additionally, revenues in the period grew fromincreased demand for secure aviation transport in Iraq, volumegains from the contract to provide aircraft maintenance support atSheppard Air Force Base, and contributions from the acquisitions ofthe Phoenix Consulting Group, Inc. and Casals & Associates,Inc.

Partially offsetting the increase were the completion of certaintask orders from the Company’s Training, Mentoring and Securitycontracts, lower volume on Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP)vehicle work and the loss of the Life Cycle Contractor Support(LCCS) contract.

Net income attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $0.6million, represents a decrease of $18.4 million from the comparableperiod in Calendar Year 2009, primarily due to revenue mix, higherlegal expenses, increased amortization of intangibles resultingfrom the Merger and higher interest expenses associated with theCompany’s new debt. In addition, increased volume from DI’s LOGCAPIV business, which produces lower margins, did not offset lowerprofit levels in our MRAP program as that program transitions to anoperations and maintenance phase, or the completion of certainprofitable task orders in our Training, Mentoring & Securitybusiness.  

Adjusted EBITDA of $46.8 million for the fourth quarter ofCalendar Year 2010 decreased $10.3 million from the comparableperiod in 2009, primarily due to previously-described factors.

Summary of Calendar Year 2010 Operating Results
Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $3.4billion, up 32.2% from the comparable period in 2009, adjusted forthe deconsolidation of GLS, which recorded $309.1 million and$764.6 million of revenue in Calendar Year 2010 and 2009,respectively.

Revenue gains were driven by DI’s Contingency Operationsbusiness, primarily from LOGCAP IV operations, which producedrevenue of $1,356.7 million, up $1,002.9 million from Calendar Year2009. Additionally, increased demand for secure aviation transportin Iraq and Afghanistan, coupled with the contract win to provideaircraft maintenance support at Sheppard Air Force Base, andcontributions from the acquisitions of the Phoenix ConsultingGroup, Inc. and Casals & Associates, Inc. added to revenuegrowth.

Partially offsetting the increase were lower volumes in theTraining, Mentoring and Security business, the loss of the LCCScontract and the Army Pre-positioned Stocks Program (APS3), reduceddemand on MRAP contracts and the completion of certain ContractField Team (CFT) task orders.

Net Loss attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of ($5.4)million decreased $79.3 million from Calendar Year 2009 primarilydue to revenue mix, higher legal expenses, Merger expenses,increased amortization of intangibles resulting from the Merger andhigher interest expense associated with new debt.

Additionally, increased volume from LOGCAP IV, which produceslower margins, did not offset lower profit levels in the MRAPprogram and CFT business. The completion of certain profitable taskorders in the Training, Mentoring & Security business alsoreduced profitability. This was partially offset by higher awardscores on DI’s War Reserve Materiel (WRM) contract and thefavorable settlement of a claim associated with LCCS.

Adjusted EBITDA of $219.7 million for Calendar Year 2010,decreased $28.5 million from the comparable period in 2009 due tothe factors described above. This decline was partially offset bylabor efficiencies of $6.3 million.

“Our initial LOGCAP award fee score was not where weanticipated, which impacted income for the quarter,” said BillKansky, SVP and Chief Financial Officer. “I am, however, pleasedwith the progress the team has made and in fact this week wereceived the second award fee determination, which was much higherthan the first score.”

Total funded backlog as of December 31, 2010 was $1.8 billion,an increase of $364 million since the Merger. This increase wasprimarily driven by new or modified task and delivery orders on theLOGCAP IV program. Partially offsetting this increase was the lossof the LCCS program.

Cash From Operating Activities (CFOA) provided $69.5 million inCalendar Year 2010, compared to $86.2 million of CFOA for CalendarYear 2009. The decline was driven by $63.1 million of Merger costsand higher interest cost of $16.8 million, due to higherpost-Merger debt, partially offset by $28.8 million from net taxrefunds and a decline in working capital.
