DynCorp International Inc.’s Parent Reports Results for First Quarter 2017

MCLEAN, Va. – (May 15, 2017) – 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 2017 financial results.

  • Revenue $459.9 million
  • Net loss attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $0.487 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $36.5 million
  • Total backlog of $3.8 billion
  • DSO of 56 days

First quarter revenue was $459.9 million, compared to $420.0 million in the first quarter 2016, primarily due to increased content on the Afghanistan Life Support Services (“ALiSS”), Theater Aviation Sustainment Manager – OCONUS (“TASM-O”) and LOGCAP IV contracts, and due to five additional days in the quarter compared to the first quarter of 2016. The increase in revenue was partially offset by decreased volume on the INL Air Wing program and the completion of the Sheppard Air Force Base contract. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the first quarter 2017 was $0.487 million, compared to $14.8 million in the first quarter 2016. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $36.5 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared with $20.5 million for the same period in 2016.

“Program performance, as measured by our customers through CPARS, is up. Orders, Sales, Earnings and Cash are all up and improving at accelerating rates,” said Lou Von Thaer, Chief Executive Officer. “Our team accomplished these results through consistent, disciplined execution of our contracts to delight our customers and the continuous improvement of our business development capabilities. I expect 2017 to be a very solid year for the company.”

First Quarter Highlights and Other Recent Developments

  • In January 2017, DynLogistics announced the award of a contract extension for the War Reserve Materiel II contract through September 30, 2017. The contract extension has a total potential value of $22.7 million.

Reportable Segment Results

AELS (Aviation Engineering, Logistics and Sustainment)

Revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $134.1 million, compared with $136.3 million for the same period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of the Sheppard Air Force Base contract. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by increased content from the T-6 COMBS and Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center (“NAWDC”) contracts.

Adjusted EBITDA was $4.2 million, compared to $2.4 million for the first quarter of 2016. The increase is primarily a result of the completion of the Sheppard Air Force Base contract.

AOLC (Aviation Operations and Life Cycle Management)

Revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $153.8 million, compared with $152.3 million for the same period in 2016. The increase was primarily a result of increased content on the TASM-O contract, partially offset by decreased volume on the INL Air Wing program.

Adjusted EBITDA was $17.2 million, compared to $9.5 million for the first quarter of 2016. The increase is primarily due to the performance of the INL Air Wing, TASM-O and Regional Aviation Sustainment Maintenance (“RASM-W”) contracts, as well as the MD530 subcontract.


Revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $172.4 million, compared with $131.2 million for the same period in 2016. The increase was primarily a result of the increased scope on both the LOGCAP IV program and the ALiSS contract.

Adjusted EBITDA was $17.5 million, compared to $10.4 million for the first quarter of 2016. The increase is primarily due to strong performance on our LOGCAP IV, ALiSS, Afghanistan Ministry of Defense and Afghanistan Ministry of Interior programs.


Cash used in operating activities during the first quarter of 2017 was $15.0 million compared with $30.5 million for the same period in 2016 and was primarily due to a reduction in accrued liabilities related to interest payments.

The unrestricted cash balance at quarter-end was $107.2 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

DSO at the end of the first quarter of 2017 was 56 days, the same as year-end 2016 as we continued to focus on managing our customer payment cycles.

Bill Kansky, Chief Financial Officer, added, “The Company expects full year 2017 revenue to come in between $1.9 billion and $1.95 billion. The increase in top line guidance is based upon recent wins, including, WRM III, Patuxent River, LOGCAP NORTHCOM, a number of ALiSS task orders, as well as our Navy Expeditionary Force Region contract win. We are also raising the full year 2017 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range to $130 million to $134 million. Our updated guidance includes the contribution from our INL program.”

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 loss 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 Indenture and New Senior 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.

The Company does not provide reconciliations of guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to Operating Income, in reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K. The Company is unable, without unreasonable efforts, to forecast certain items required to develop meaningful comparable GAAP financial measures. These items include other (loss) income and certain income/expense or gain/loss adjustments under the Company’s debt agreements that are difficult to predict in advance in order to include in a GAAP estimate.
