DynCorp International Inc.’s Parent Reports Results for Second Quarter 2013 

  • Revenue of $876.5 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $48.6 million
  • Total backlog of $4.1 billion

FALLS CHURCH, Va. – (August 9, 2013) – Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. (“Holdings”), the parent of DynCorp International Inc. (“DI”, and together with Holdings, the “Company”), a global services provider, today reported second quarter 2013 financial results.

Second quarter revenue decreased $84.6 million, or 8.8%, to $876.5 million compared to second quarter 2012, primarily driven by lower content under the Company’s Logistics Civil Augmentation Program IV contract (“LOGCAP”) and reduced demand for training needs as the war in Afghanistan winds down. This was partially offset by a $67.2 million increase in revenue from the Aviation Group based on the improved performance of the Contract Field Team (“CFT”), NASA Aircraft Maintenance Operational Support (“NASA-AMOS”) and T6 Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply (“T6-COMBS”) contracts. Net income attributable to Holdings for the second quarter 2013 was $8.3 million, representing a decrease of $0.7 million compared to second quarter 2012. Net income attributable to Holdings was primarily impacted by reduced demand for services related to the declining operational tempo in the war in Afghanistan. This was partially offset by continued growth of the DynAviation business, lower interest expense during the quarter as a result of the $90 million reduction in long-term debt during 2012 and lower selling, general and administrative expenses. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $48.6 million for the second quarter, representing 5.5% of revenue, and a 6.2% decrease from the same period in 2012.

“No matter how tough the operational tempo, this quarter showed that our 30,000 employees and team mates around the world are dedicated to coming together, pulling in the same direction, delivering outstanding services to our customers all while improving operating margins,” said Steve Gaffney, chairman and CEO. “During the quarter, we implemented organizational changes that are already improving our operational efficiency and reducing costs.”

Results are reported in the Company’s new operating segments.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • In April 2013, the Company amended its organizational structure to improve efficiencies within existing businesses, capitalize on new opportunities, continue international growth and expand commercial business. The Company’s previous six operating and reporting segments, Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (“LOGCAP”), Aviation, Training and Intelligence Solutions (“TIS”), Global Logistics and Development Solutions (“GLDS”), Security Services and Global Linguist Services (“GLS”) into three reporting and operating segments, DynAviation, DynLogistics and DynGlobal.
  • In April 2013, DynLogistics was awarded a task order with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs under the Criminal Justice Program Support Contract (“CJPS”) to recruit and support the U.S. contingent to the United Nations Police in Haiti and provide logistics support to the Haitian National Police. The hybrid firm-fixed price, labor hour, and cost-reimbursable task order has one base year, three, one-year options, and a total potential contract value of $48.6 million.
  • In June 2013, DynLogistics was awarded a contract with the Defense Logistics Agency to provide logistics support for the agency’s equipment in Afghanistan. The fixed-price task order has one base year, two one-year options and a total potential contract value of $11.2 million.
  • In June 2013, DynLogistics was awarded a position on a multiple award IDIQ contract under which work will be awarded through separately issued task orders to provide supplies and support services to the U.S. Marine Corps. The multiple award IDIQ has one base year, four one-year options, and a total potential contract value of $854.6 million.
  • In June 2013, the Company entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement dated July 7, 2010, among DynCorp International, Holdings, the other Guarantors party thereto, several banks and other financial institutions or entities from time to time parties thereto and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent. The Amendment amended the Credit Agreement to extend the maturity date with respect to the revolving credit facility to July 7, 2016, and increased the amount of the revolving credit commitment to $181.0 million. The Amendment also amended the Credit Agreement to, among other things, modify certain of the covenants, including the maximum leverage ratio.

Reportable Segments Results:


This segment is comprised of the previous Aviation Group business, including the following key contracts: Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (“INL”) Air Wing, CFT, NASA AMOS, Patuxent River Naval Test Wing, T-6 COMBS, Andrews Air Force Base, California Department of Forestry, Sheppard Air Force Base, and C-21 Contractor Logistics Support.

Revenue for DynAviation of $380.4 million increased $67.2 million, or 21.4%, in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. The increase was driven primarily by continued strong demand under the CFT contract, especially the Robbins Air Force Base, Theater Aviation Sustainment Management – Europe (“TASM-E”), and 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment – Airborne (“160th SOAR”) task orders, contributions from the NASA AMOS and T-6 COMBS contracts that began in 2012, demand under Counter Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office (“CNTPO”) and increased demand for our aircraft maintenance and support programs in Saudi Arabia.

DynAviation Group reported Adjusted EBITDA of $32.2 million, an increase of $3.0 million, or 10.2%, for the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, primarily from improved operating performance under the CFT contract and steady margins under the INL contract, partially offset by reduced earnings from the CNTPO contract. Adjusted EBITDA for the DynAviation segment as a percentage of revenue for the second quarter was 8.4% compared to 9.3% during the second quarter of 2012. The decrease is primarily as a result of a reduction in margins on the CNTPO and additional cost incurred to expand Heliworks, Inc., which we acquired in July 2012. These reductions were partially offset by an increase in volume of higher margin deliverables under the INL Air Wing program as well as margin improvements on certain task orders under the CFT program, including the Robins Air Force Base, Solomon’s Island, Regional Aviation Sustainment Maintenance – West Region (“RASM-W”) and TASM-E task orders.


DynLogistics contains the businesses that were previously reported under the LOGCAP, Security Services, Training and Intelligence Solutions, and Global Logistics and Development Groups. Key contracts under this segment include: LOGCAP , Afghanistan Ministry of Defense Program (“AMDP”), Worldwide Protective Services (“WPS”), War Reserve Materiel (“WRM”), and Combined Security Transition Command – Afghanistan (CSTC-A).

Revenue for DynLogistics of $500.5 million decreased $147.4 million, or 22.8%, during the second quarter 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. The change was primarily the result of reduced demand under the LOGCAP contract as the operations tempo for the war in Afghanistan declines. Revenue also declined from lower content under the Company’s various MRAP contracts and under the AMDP contract as well as the reduced need for security under the Department of State WPS program. Revenue declines in the quarter were partially offset by growth under the Egyptian Personnel Support Services (“EPSS”) contract and Philippines Base Operations II contracts, both of which began in 2012.

DynLogistics’ reported Adjusted EBITDA of $14.8 million decreased $6.0 million, or 28.7%, during the second quarter 2013 compared to the second quarter 2012, primarily as a result of lower content under the LOGCAP contract and reduced training needs, partially offset by growth in the base operations business, primarily in Egypt and the Philippines. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue for this segment decreased to 3.0% compared to 3.2% reported in the second quarter 2012. The decrease was primarily associated with reduced margins resulting from the reduction in scope on the WPS program partially offset by margin improvements on the LOGCAP contract due to the Afghanistan and Kuwait task orders being converted from a cost-plus-award-fee contract vehicle to a cost-plus-fixed-fee arrangement, as well as operations under the EPSS contract.


DynGlobal focuses resources and energy behind the pursuit of international and commercial business. Initial activities of this segment are focused on the development of this business and any associated costs incurred during the three months ended June 28, 2013 were incurred to support the bidding and proposal activities necessary to win contracts and grow this segment. There were no associated contracts or revenue for the DynGlobal segment for the three months ended June 28, 2013.

“Our team delivered solid earnings and margin expansion this quarter on a reducing top line as we continue to see the impacts of sequestration and the transition of the Afghanistan War off set by growth in the Aviation business,” stated Bill Kansky, chief financial officer.  “Our results were in line with previous guidance but we are continuing the gain more clarity on the uncertain factors of the drawdown in Afghanistan and the ability to lock in a governmental budget. We should have better understanding of these outcomes later in the year. For 2013 we anticipate revenue declines in the mid-teens range while margins should continue to enjoy the benefits of favorability as the top line mix decline is our lower margin business.”


Cash provided by operating activities during the six months ended June 29, 2013, was $50.9 million, compared with $52.8 million during 2012. Cash provided by operations in 2013 was primarily the result of improved working capital during the second quarter as customers changed their payment patterns during the quarter to more of a historical cycle as the effects of sequestration became more fully integrated. This working capital change had a direct impact on the Company’s Days Sales Outstanding which improved six (6) days from the end of the first quarter to 73 days at the end of the second quarter 2013.

The cash balance at quarter-end was $135.8 million with no advances outstanding on the 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 noncash items from operations and certain other items as defined in our 10.375% Senior Unsecured Notes and our 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.
