DynCorp International Inc.’s Parent Reports Results First Quarter 2014

  • Revenue of $612.8 million
  • Net loss attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $0.8 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $34.6 million
  • Total backlog of $3.7 billion
  • DSO of 73 days
  • Term Loan principal prepayment of $15.0 million

MCLEAN, Va. – (May 12, 2014) – Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. (“Holdings”), the parent of DynCorp International Inc. (“DI”, and together with Holdings, the “Company”), a global services provider, today reported first quarter 2014 financial results.

First quarter revenue was $612.8 million, compared to $932.1 million in the first quarter 2013, with the decrease primarily driven by the accelerated pace of the drawdown in Afghanistan, reduced service needs in Iraq for the Department of State (DoS) and delays in new business awards caused by United States budget uncertainty. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the first quarter 2014 was $0.8 million, compared with net income attributable to Holdings of $15.0 million in the first quarter 2013. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $34.6 million for the first quarter, compared with $53.3 million for the same period in 2013.

“Despite the slowdown in contract awards that has been recognized across our industry, we saw the team continue to capture new business at an impressive win rate and I am cautiously optimistic about the almost $6 billion in proposals that are currently submitted and awaiting award across the three businesses,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and CEO.  “With the drawdown in the Middle East, our focus remains on growth from our core into new areas through our commercial and internationally-focused business, DynGlobal, and through innovative partnerships created in our DynAviation and DynLogistics Groups.”

Bill Kansky, chief financial officer, added, “As the slowing operational tempo of the war pressures our revenues we need to realize lower working capital levels, which will allow us to continue to retire our outstanding debt. As previously communicated, the Company expects to pay down at least $50 million of debt in 2014, and we are on-plan through the first quarter as we made a $15 million prepayment on our term loan.”

Reportable Segments Results:


Revenue was $295.7 million, compared with $367.7 million for the same period in 2013. The change was primarily the result of: decreased demand resulting from the de-scoping of the DoS Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Air Wing program (INL-A) in Iraq, a reduction in volume of certain task orders under the Contract Field Teams (CFT) program, and the completion of the G222 and Columbus Support Division contracts. The decrease was partially offset by the Army Field Maintenance (AFM) and the Multi Sensor Aerial Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (MAISR) contracts.

Adjusted EBITDA was $12.2 million, compared to $33.1 million for the first quarter 2013, with the change primarily driven by the revenue decline discussed above, charges on two loss contracts and a change in contract mix from CFT to AFM. These changes also impacted adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue, which declined to 4.1%, compared with 9.0% in the first quarter 2013.


Revenue was $317.2 million, compared with $567.1 million for the first quarter 2013, consistent with the expectation of reduced volume on the LOGCAP IV and Afghanistan Ministry of Defense Program (AMDP) contracts resulting from the continued drawdown of troops in Afghanistan, and was impacted by lower volume on the U.S. DoS Civilian Police (CivPol) program task orders, and the completion of the Worldwide Protective Services (WPS) program in Iraq. This decline was partially offset by increases in revenue from programs including the Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise (EAGLE) Fort Campbell program, the Medium Tactical Vehicles (MTV) program, and the new task order for the Criminal Justice Program Support (CJPS) in Haiti.

Adjusted EBITDA was $14.1 million compared with $19.5 million for the first quarter 2013, the decline was primarily a result of lower revenue as described above. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue for the first quarter was 4.4% compared to 3.4% during the first quarter of 2013. The increase primarily relates to a favorable change in contract mix.


DynGlobal brings the full range of DI’s diverse capabilities and decades of experience to international and commercial customers. Initial activities of this segment are focused on the development and growth of this business.


Cash used by operating activities during the first quarter of 2014 was $29.1 million compared with $73.5 million during the first quarter of 2013. Cash used by operations in the first quarter of 2014 benefited primarily by improved working capital as compared to the same period of 2013. During the quarter the Company also made a $15.0 million principal prepayment on its term loan and still ended the quarter with $122.1 million in unrestricted cash. The Company did not have any borrowings under its revolving credit facility at quarter-end.

DSO at the end of the first quarter 2014 was 73 days, a four day increase from year-end, primarily attributable to the timing of payment cycles by certain customers.

Reconciliation to GAAP

In addition to the Company’s financial results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) included in this press release, the Company has provided certain financial measures that are not calculated according to GAAP, including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. We define EBITDA as GAAP net income attributable to the Company adjusted for interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting EBITDA for certain noncash items from operations and certain other items as defined in our 10.375% Senior Unsecured Notes and our Credit Facility. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating operating performance and are regularly used by security analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in reviewing the Company. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful in assessing our ability to generate cash to cover our debt obligations including interest and principal payments. Non-GAAP financial measures, such as EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be a substitute for any GAAP financial measure and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of the performance of other companies.

For a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures please see the financial schedules accompanying this release.
