MCLEAN, Va. – (May 14, 2019) – Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. (“Holdings”), the parent of DynCorp International Inc. (“DI,” and together with Holdings, the “Company”), a leading global services provider, today reported first quarter 2019 financial results.
- Revenue of $480.8 million
- Net income attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $11.6 million
- Adjusted EBITDA of $39.3 million

- DSO of 50 days
First quarter 2019 revenue was $480.8 million, down 10.0% compared to $534.3 million recorded in the first quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of the INL Air Wing extension and the completion of the T-6 Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply (“T-6 COMBS”) Bridge contract, partially offset by the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program IV (“LOGCAP IV”) and the Contractor Logistics Support: C-12, C-26, UC-35 and T-6 Transport (“CLS Transport”) contracts. Net income attributable to Holdings for the first quarter of 2019 was $11.6 million compared to $16.4 million in the first quarter of 2018. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $39.3 million for the first quarter of 2019 compared to $47.2 million for the same period in 2018.
“With more than $5.0 billion in proposals submitted and awaiting award across our DynAviation and DynLogistics businesses, and a supportive defense budget backdrop, I remain confident that we will achieve our objectives in 2019,” said chief executive officer George Krivo.

Reportable Segment Results
Revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $224.4 million, down 29.3% compared with $317.2 million recorded in the same period in 2018 primarily due to the completion of the INL Air Wing extension, the completion of the T-6 COMBS Bridge contract and the completion of the MD530 subcontract. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by the CLS Transport contract. Adjusted EBITDA was $10.6 million, compared to $27.0 million for the first quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of the INL Air Wing extension, the completion of the T-6 COMBS Bridge contract and the completion of certain other contracts partially offset by the performance of our CLS Transport contract.
Revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was $256.5 million, up 17.9% compared with $217.5 million recorded in the same period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased scope on the LOGCAP IV, G4 Worldwide Logistics Support and the ALiSS contracts. Adjusted EBITDA was $29.3 million, compared to $22.5 million for the first quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to higher volume as described above and productivity and margin expansion across several contracts.
Cash provided by operating activities at the end of the first quarter of 2019 was $4.0 million compared to $8.0 million for the same period in 2018.
The unrestricted cash balance at quarter-end was $189.1 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

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 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 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.
