MCLEAN, Va. – (May 8, 2015) – 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 2015 financial results.
First quarter revenue was $467.0 million, compared to $612.8 million in the first quarter 2014, with the decrease primarily driven by the continued drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, reduced service needs in Iraq and delays in new business awards. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the first quarter 2015 was $14.8 million, compared with a net loss attributable to Holdings of $0.8 million in the first quarter 2014, primarily due to the revenue decline discussed above, lower earnings from equity method investees and the impact of a tax provision, partially offset by lower selling general and administrative expenses and lower interest expense. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $17.2 million for the first quarter, compared with $34.6 million for the same period in 2014.
“DynLogistics revenue declined by half from the comparable quarter and margins improved. DynAviation revenue increased compared to last year, but program performance did not meet our expectations.” said Jim Geisler, interim chief executive officer.
Bill Kansky, chief financial officer added, “DynLogistics posted 5.6% adjusted EBITDA margins in the quarter. Based on the segment’s current performance, we expect DynLogistics to finish the year with margins at or above the 5% level.”
First Quarter Highlights
- In January 2015, DynLogistics announced the award of a contract from the United States Army Contracting Command to provide advisory, training and mentoring services to the Afghanistan Ministry of Interior. The contract has a nine-month base period with two, three-month options and a total potential contract value of $67.8 million.
- In January 2015, DynLogistics announced the award of a contract from the United States Army Contracting Command to provide advisory, training and mentoring services to the Afghanistan Ministry of Defense. The contract has a nine-month base period with two, three-month options and a total potential contract value of $84.0 million.
- In January 2015, DynAviation announced the award of a task order on a contract from the Naval Air Systems Command to provide aircraft maintenance and logistics support for aircraft assigned to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center. The task order has a one-year period of performance and is valued up to $44.5 million. The contract vehicle has a five-year period of performance, cumulatively, with a total potential value of $93.3 million.
- In January 2015, DynLogistics was awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of State to provide life support services on the Afghanistan Life Support Services (“ALiSS”) contract. DI is one of two awardees on the IDIQ contract which has one base year with four, one-year options with a total potential contract value of $540 million.
- In February 2015, DynAviation was awarded a contract from the United States Army to provide integrated maintenance support services for the Saudi Arabian National Guard (“SANG”) Aviation Brigade. The contract has a three-year base period, with two one-year options and a total potential contract value of $127.2 million.

Reportable Segment Results
Revenue for DynAviation was $309.9 million, compared with $295.7 million for the same period in 2014. The change was primarily the result of higher revenue from the Contractor Logistics Support (“CLS”) and Future Flexible Acquisition and Sustainment Tool (“F2AST”) contracts and organic growth in our Middle East contracts. The increase in revenue was partially offset by the reduction in volume on certain task orders under the Contract Field Teams (“CFT”) program and the completion of the Counter Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office (“CNTPO”) program.
Adjusted EBITDA was $9.3 million, compared to $12.2 million for the first quarter of 2014. Lower profitability was driven by completion of contracts that historically commanded higher margins and a charge on a new contract that is in a forward loss position. The decrease was partially offset by continued organic growth and enhanced productivity on our existing Middle East contracts.
Revenue for DynLogistics was $156.4 million, compared with $317.2 million for the first quarter 2014, based on reductions in manning, materials and other direct costs under the Afghan Area of Responsibility (“AOR”) task order under the LOGCAP IV program. Additionally, revenue was impacted by de-scoping on the Afghanistan Ministry of Defense Program (“AMDP / ANP”) and the Combined Security Transition Command Afghanistan (“CSTC-A” / “ANA”) contracts as well as lower volume on the Civilian Police (“CivPol”) task orders and the completion of certain contracts. This decline was partially offset by task orders under the Criminal Justice Program Support (“CJPS”) in Haiti and commercial and governmental clients in the national strategic programs portfolio.
Adjusted EBITDA was $8.7 million compared with $14.1 million for the first quarter 2014, with the change primarily a result of lower revenue as described above.
Cash used in operating activities during the first quarter of 2015 was $33.6 compared with $29.1 million for the same period in 2014.
The cash balance at quarter-end was $59.8 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.
DSO at the end of the first quarter 2015 was 82 days, a 2 day increase from year-end primarily attributable to the timing of collections on certain contracts.

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 Senior Unsecured Notes and/or our Senior Credit Facility. We believe 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.
