MCLEAN, Va. – (March 19, 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 fourth quarter and full year 2018 financial results.
- Fourth quarter revenue of $538.6 million; full year revenue of $2,148.3 million
- Fourth quarter and year to date net income attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $16.6 million and $84.5 million, respectively
- Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $48.8 million; full year Adjusted EBITDA of $190.1 million

- DSO of 49 days
Fourth quarter 2018 revenue was $538.6 million, down 5.1% compared to $567.3 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of the Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, Office of Aviation (“INL Air Wing”) extension and the T-6 Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply and T-6 Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply Bridge contracts (collectively, “T-6 COMBS”). The decrease in revenue was partially offset by increased scope on the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program IV (“LOGCAP IV”), Afghanistan Life Support Services (“ALiSS”), the G4 Worldwide Logistics Support 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 fourth quarter of 2018 was $16.6 million compared to $21.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $48.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $38.6 million for the same period in 2017.
Calendar year 2018 revenue was $2,148.3 million, up 7.2% compared to $2,004.4 million recorded in calendar year 2017. The increase was primarily due to increased scope on the LOGCAP IV program and the G4 Worldwide Logistics Support contract, and the CLS Transport and Naval Test Wing Pacific O-Level Maintenance (“Naval Test Wing Pacific”) contracts. The increase in revenue was partially offset by lower volume on and the completion of the INL Air Wing extension and the T-6 COMBS contract, and the completion of certain other contracts. Net income attributable to Holdings for calendar year 2018 was $84.5 million compared to $30.6 million in calendar year 2017. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $190.1 million for calendar year 2018, which results in 8.8% margins for the period.
“We had another great year in 2018, with the Company growing its top line 7.2%, Adjusted EBITDA 24.6% and generating $137.2M of free cash flow,” said chief executive officer George Krivo. “Our focus remains growing the Company by making our numbers led by business development, delighting our customer through operational excellence and industry leading professional standards.”

Reportable Segment Results
Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $248.7 million compared to $322.7 million recorded in the same period in 2017. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of the INL Air Wing extension and the T-6 COMBS contract. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by the CLS Transport contract and the sale of inventory originally purchased for our T-6 COMBS contract. Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $1,114.4 million compared to $1,208.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. The change was primarily due to lower volume on, and the completion of, the INL Air Wing extension, the completion of the T-6 COMBS contract and the completion of certain other contracts. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by the CLS Transport and Naval Test Wing Pacific contracts.
Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $21.3 million compared to $25.1 million for the same period in 2017. The decrease is primarily due to the completion of INL Air Wing extension and certain contracts and the performance of the CLS T34/44/6 contract. The decrease was partially offset by the performance of the Andrews AFB and the sale of inventory originally purchased for our T-6 COMBS contract. Adjusted EBITDA was $93.8 million for calendar year 2018 compared to $95.5 million for calendar year 2017. The reduction was primarily due to decreased content on and the completion of the INL Air Wing extension and the completion of certain other contracts. The decrease was partially offset by the sale of inventory originally purchased for our T-6 COMBS contract, productivity on the Andrews AFB contract and the resolution of a subcontractor matter.
Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $290.3 million compared with $244.4 million recorded in the same period in 2017. Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $1,034.0 million compared to $796.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. The quarter to date and year to date increases were both primarily due to increased scope on the LOGCAP IV, ALiSS and the G4 Worldwide Logistics Support contracts.
Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $31.7 million compared to $20.4 million for the same period in 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was $110.9 million in calendar year 2018 compared to $73.5 million for calendar year 2017. The quarter to date and year to date increases were both primarily due to higher volume as described above, the completion of certain contracts, and productivity and margin expansion across several contracts.
Cash provided by operating activities during 2018 was $146.6 million compared to $73.2 million for 2017. Cash provided by operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2018 was primarily due to our net income, the resolution of a subcontractor matter, settlement of liabilities associated with a contract closeout, completion of certain contracts, and changes in working capital, driven primarily by a reduction in accounts receivable resulting from our continued efficiency in collecting our receivables and the receipt of a customer advance in the second quarter of calendar year 2018.
The unrestricted cash balance at quarter-end was $203.8 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.
DSO was 49 days as of December 31, 2018, a five day improvement from year end 2017, due to the impact of an advanced payment from a customer during 2018 and our continued focus on managing our customer payment cycles.
“Operations performed well in 2018, delivering strong cash flow, revenue growth and margin expansion above expectations,” stated Bill Kansky, Chief Financial Officer. “Our continued focus on working capital improvement and cash collections allowed us to reduce our term loan by $104.9 million during the year.”

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.
