Summary Operating Results

Revenue for the first quarter of $1,047.1 million was up 18.4%from the same quarter in 2011 based on: continued strong demandunder the Logistics and Civil Augmentation Program (“LOGCAP”) IVcontract; a significant increase under the Department of StateBureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs(“INL”) -Air Wing contract primarily due to construction servicesand secure air transportation services in Iraq and Afghanistan;performance of new contracts under the Security Services Group andthe Aviation Group, including task orders under the Contract FieldTeams (“CFT”) contract,  the ramp-up of the Oshkosh Defensecontract under GLDS and increased volume under our AfghanistanMinistry of Defense Program (“AMDP”).  Revenue growth in thequarter was partially offset by the loss of the Life-CycleContractor Support (“LCCS”) contracts.

First quarter net income attributable to Holdings was $5.6million compared to $4.9 million reported in the comparable periodin 2011.  The change in net income attributable to Holdingswas due primarily to revenue growth noted above, and thecontribution of improved margins on the CFT contract, lowerselling, general and administrative expenses as a percent ofrevenue, and lower interest expense, including no loss on earlyextinguishment of debt which was recorded in the first quarter of2011.  These benefits were partially offset by lowerprofitability driven by losses incurred on the ramp-up of the newSecurity Services contracts, and the mix of increased businessunder the Afghan National Police Ministry of Interior DevelopmentProgram (“AMDP”) contract and lower demand under the CivilianPolice (“CivPol”) contract as the AMDP contract carries lowermargins based on its cost responsive nature and lack of fee oncertain other direct costs. Additionally, the company recordedlower earnings from equity method investees related to the GLSjoint venture.

Adjusted EBITDA for first quarter 2012 was $41.4 million or$14.2 million lower than the comparable period in 2011 primarilydue to the net income items discussed above, the impact of lowerearnings from affiliates not received in cash and a higheradjustment for acquisition accounting and Merger-relateditems. 

“I am pleased to see the effects of the new, higher-marginAviation contracts gain traction and I am excited about the marketadjacencies we entered into this quarter that continue to evolvethe business,” said Bill Kansky, chief financial officer. “But the beginning of the year also brought challenges. Theunexpected transition and staffing hurdles in our Security ServicesGroup coupled with the anticipated headwinds from the GLSwind-down in Iraq and mix changes in our training and mentoringcontracts negatively impacted the quarter.  However, we havethe right management focus and we intend to improve the operationsof our Security business and get the programs back on track.”

As a percentage of revenue,Adjusted EBITDA was 3.7%, for the three months ended March 30,2012, compared to 3.2%, for three months ended April 1, 2011, anincrease primarily due to higher award fee accruals. 


Revenue of $306.4 million increased $45.8 million, or 17.6%,during the three months ended March 30, 2012, compared to thethree months ended April 1, 2011.

The Company alsobenefited during the three months ended March 30, 2012 fromcontract wins during the third quarter of 2011 including the NavalTest Wing Patuxent River MD (“Pax River”) contract and new taskorders under the CFT program, specifically the Regional AviationSupport Management – West (“RASM-W”), Theater Aviation SupportManagement – Europe (“TASM-E”), and Fort Drum and Fort Campbellcontracts. The Company also continues to experience improvedperformance under the Counter Narcoterrorism Technology ProgramOfficer (“CNTPO”) contract.

Training and IntelligenceSolutions

Revenue of $156.6 million increased $3.4 million, or 2.2%,during the three months ended March 30, 2012 compared to thethree months ended April 1, 2011. The increase was primarilydriven by increase in revenue on the AMDP and CSTC-A programs. TheAMDP program began operations during the three months ended April1, 2011 but was not fully operational until the third quarter of2011. This program substantially replaced the CivPol Afghanistanprogram from the prior year.  The increase in revenue waspartially offset by declines in the CivPol program, which isramping down and the loss of revenue on the Multi-National SecurityTransition Command – IRAQ (“MNSTC-I”) program, which concludedduring calendar year 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA of $5.5 million decreased $7.9 million, or58.9%, during the three months ended March 30, 2012, comparedto the three months ended April 1, 2011, primarily as a resultof the contract mix within this Group containing more programsoperating at lower margins in comparison to prior year.  Asmentioned above, the AMDP program substantially replaced the CivPolAfghanistan program, carrying lower margins with certain componentsnot eligible for fee as compared to the more favorable contractstructure under the CivPol Afghanistan program.  This changealso drove the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage ofrevenue to 3.5%, for the three months ended March 30, 2012,from 8.8%, in the prior year.

Global Logistics & DevelopmentSolutions

Revenue of $79.1 million increased $7.3 million, or 10.2%,during the three months ended March 30, 2012 compared to thethree months ended April 1, 2011, primarily as a result of theincrease in operations under the Oshkosh Defense contract, awardedduring second quarter of calendar year 2011. The increase inrevenue was also driven by the growth on the War Reserve Materiel(“WRM”) and the contract for the Democratic Republic of Congo andSomalia under the Africa Peacekeeping Program (“AFRICAP”). Theseincreases were partially offset by reduced volume under the AirForce Contract Augmentation Program (“AFCAP”) and the completion ofcertain contracts by Casals & Associates, Inc.

Adjusted EBITDA of $5.1 million increased $0.4 million, or 9.1%,during the three months ended March 30, 2012 compared to thethree months ended April 1, 2011 primarily as a result of thepositive margin contribution from the Oshkosh Defense program, inaddition to the increase in service demand under the AFRICAPprograms. As a percentage of revenue, Adjusted EBITDA was 6.5%, forthe three months ended March 30, 2012, compared to 6.5%, fromthe three months ended April 1, 2011, as a result of increaseddemand for higher margin business discussed above combined withlower demand for the AFCAP and Casals contracts which carried lowermargins.

Security Services

Revenue of $23.9 million increased $9.4 million, or 65.2%,during the three months ended March 30, 2012 compared to thethree months ended April 1, 2011, primarily as a result of thereplacement of the Worldwide Personal Protection Program (“WPPS”)with the higher demand under the Worldwide Protective Services(“WPS”) program during calendar year 2011, and the addition of twonew programs, Chemonics and Camp Bondsteel, which became fullyoperational during the three months ended March 30, 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA loss of $6.6 million for the three months endedMarch 30, 2012 decreased from Adjusted EBITDA of $1.3 millionfor the three months ended April 1, 2011, primarily as aresult of the WPPS program ending in late 2011, and performancechallenges such as staffing issues, additional transition costs andcustomer process impediments on the WPS and Camp Bondsteelprograms.


DI had no Adjusted EBITDA from the GLS Group in the firstquarter of 2012 compared to  $4.7 million reported during thethree months ended April 1, 2011, primarily as a result of thereduction in deployed linguists under the INSCOM contract insupport of U.S. troop levels in Iraq as the war came to an end inDecember 2011.


Cash used in Operating Activities of $10.0 million for thequarter-ended March 30, 2011 was driven by an increase in workingcapital needs as a result of revenue growth on our programs,primarily LOGCAP IV, coupled with a reduction in payables,partially offset by a reduction in DSO from 69 days at year-end2011 to 68 days at the end of first quarter.  On March 30,2012 the Company was temporarily in default under its revolvingcredit facility (“Revolver”) for missing the March 29, 2012deadline to deliver annual financial statements and other relateddocuments to the Administrative Agent. The annual financialstatements were filed on April 9, 2012, curing the default andrestoring full access to the Revolver.  The Cash balance atthe end of the quarter was $138.6 million which reflected the $90.0million draw the Company made under its revolving credit facilityat quarter-end to provide additional liquidity as the Companycompleted its financial statements.    The Companyrepaid the outstanding Revolver balance in April.
