DynCorp International Inc.’s Parent Reports Results For First Quarter 2016

MCLEAN, Va. – (May 9, 2016) – 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 2016 financial results.

  • Revenue of $420.0 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $20.5 million
  • Net loss attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $14.8 million
  • Total backlog of $2.8 billion
  • DSO of 74 days

First quarter revenue was $420.0 million, compared to $467.0 million in the first quarter 2015, with the decrease primarily driven by reductions in manning, materials and other direct costs under the Afghan Area of Responsibility (“AOR”) task order and completion of the Kuwait task orders under the LOGCAP IV program, lower content on the INL Air Wing, T-6 COMBS programs and the completion of certain CFT task orders, partially offset by new contracts wins in our DynAviation and DynLogistics segments. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the first quarter 2016 was $14.8 million, in line with a net loss attributable to Holdings of $14.8 million in the first quarter 2015. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $20.5 million for the first quarter, compared with $17.2 million for the same period in 2015.

“Results were generally in line with our traditional operating rhythm and driven by the buying patterns of our customers,” said Lou Von Thaer, chief executive officer. “I am also especially pleased with the launch of our refinancing deal.  This is an important transaction for the company that provides the time and flexibility needed to execute our strategic plan.”

First Quarter and Other Recent Highlights 

  • On April 30, 2016, the Company entered into a support agreement with holders of approximately 69% of its 10.375% Senior Notes due 2017 (the “Senior Unsecured Notes”) in connection with an offer to exchange (the “Exchange Offer”) any and all of its outstanding $455.0 million principal amount of Senior Unsecured Notes for a combination of $45.0 million cash and new senior secured second lien notes due 2020, and a related consent solicitation.  The Company launched the Exchange Offer on May 2, 2016.
  • On April 30, 2016, the Company entered into Amendment No. 5 to its senior secured credit facility, which would provide for an extension of certain revolving credit commitments to July 7, 2019 and the issuance of a new term loan facility with a maturity of July 7, 2020 contingent on the consummation of the Exchange Offer and related transactions. The proceeds from the issuance of the new term loan facility would be used to repay the existing term loans under the Company’s senior secured credit facility in full.
  • On April 30, 2016, an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. agreed to provide $30 million in the form of a third lien secured loan in support of the Company’s Global Advisory Group, contingent on the consummation of the Exchange Offer and related transactions.

Reportable Segment Results


Revenue in the first quarter was $288.5 million, compared with $309.9 million for the same period in 2015. The decrease was primarily a result of lower content on the INL Air Wing and T-6 COMBS programs and the completion of certain task orders under the CFT program. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by new business from Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center (“NAWDC”) and Saudi Arabian National Guard (“SANG”) contracts.

Adjusted EBITDA was $11.9 million, compared to $9.3 million for the first quarter of 2015.  The increase is primarily a result of continued incentive fee awards on a U.S. Navy contract and a charge the Company took in the first quarter of 2015 related to a forward loss contract.


Revenue for DynLogistics was $131.2 million, compared with $156.4 million for the first quarter 2015. The decrease was based primarily on reductions in manning, materials and other direct costs under the AOR task order and completion of the Kuwait task orders under the LOGCAP IV program, de-scoping on the Philippines Operations Support (“POS”) contract and the completion of certain other contracts. This decline was partially offset by the new Afghanistan Life Support Services (“ALiSS”) contract and task orders under the Afghanistan Ministry of Defense and U.S. Army Contracting Command.

Adjusted EBITDA was $10.4 million compared with $8.7 million in the first quarter of 2015. The change was primarily of result of the definitization of fee on certain legacy programs and the resolution of a contingent liability, partially offset by the decline in revenue discussed above.


Cash used in operating activities during the first quarter of 2016 was $30.5 million compared with $33.6 million for the same period in 2015.

The cash balance at quarter-end was $74.8 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

DSO at the end of the first quarter 2016 was 74 days, a one day increase from year-end primarily due to timing of payment cycles on our LOGCAP IV contract.

“The Company’s first quarter profitability was in line with the midpoint of our guidance”, said Bill Kansky, chief financial officer. “Based on our start, we continue to forecast full year Adjusted EBITDA to be between $85 million and $91 million.”

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 Senior Unsecured Notes and/or our senior secured credit facility, with the exception of the adjustment for Global Advisory Group expenses which will be included in our new senior secured credit facility after its effectiveness upon the consummation of the Exchange Offer and related transactions. 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.
