MCLEAN, Va. – (August 11, 2014) – 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 2014 financial results.

Second quarter revenue was $591.0million, compared to $876.5 million in the second quarter 2013, with the decrease primarily driven by the continued drawdown in Afghanistan and delays in new business awards. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the second quarter 2014 was $82.1million, compared with net income attributable to Holdings of $8.3 million in the second quarter 2013, largely due to the revenue declines discussed above and a non-cash charge of $90.7 million for an impairment of goodwill. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $29.7million for the second quarter, compared with $48.6 million for the same period in 2013.

“DI’s customers recognize the scope and quality of our services that make DI unique. The dedicated DI professionals who provide critical mission support each day set us apart from the competition and I am honored to work alongside them,” said Jim Geisler, interim chief executive officer. “That said, the business continues to be affected by U.S. government budget pressures and our performance in our DynAviation business is not where we would like it to be. To enhance future financial performance, we are taking steps to achieve operational and cost improvements and we expect to see the benefits of those efforts throughout the remainder of the year.”

Bill Kansky, chief financial officer, added “The Company enjoyed strong cash flow generation this quarter, which allowed us to pay down $45 million on our term loan in the second quarter and $60 million in the first six months of the year, exceeding our full year guidance of $50 million for 2014. Based on our results through June, we now expect to pay down $90 million of debt in 2014, with the remaining $30 million of additional reductions occurring ratably in the third and fourth quarters.”

Second Quarter Highlights

  • In June 2014, DynLogistics received notice to proceed on a task order from the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Information Resource Management to provide global information technology services. The task order has a five-year period of performance, with a total contract value of $165.0 million, if all options are exercised.
  • In April 2014, the Company announced that DynAviation was awarded a task order under the Contract Field Teams (“CFT”) contract to provide aviation maintenance support to the 512th Airlift Wing at Dover Air Force Base. The task order has a one year base and one, one-year option and a potential total value of $8.5 million.
  • In April 2014, the Company announced that DynAviation was awarded a task order under the Logistics Worldwide multiple award contract from the General Services Administration to provide engineering support services. The competitively-awarded task order has one base year with four, one-year options, and a total potential value of $5.0 million.
  • In June 2014, the Company made a principal prepayment of $45.0 million on its Term Loan, bringing total prepayments for the year to $60.0 million.

Reportable Segments Results


Revenue for DynAviation was $300.7million, compared with $380.4 million for the same period in 2013. The change was primarily the result of a decrease in demand on the INL-Air Wing program in Iraq, in addition to a reduction in volume of certain task orders under the CFT program, and the completion of the G222 and Columbus Support Division contracts. The decrease was partially offset by revenue from the Army Field Maintenance (“AFM”) program and the Multi Sensor Aerial Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance program.

Adjusted EBITDA was $14.3million, compared to $32.2 million for the second quarter 2013, with the decrease attributed to the revenue declines discussed above, the impact of loss contracts, and a change in contract mix on the Theater Aviation Sustainment Manager (“TASM”) task order moving under the AFM contract vehicle. These changes also impacted Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue, which declined to 4.8%, compared with 8.5% in the second quarter 2013.


Revenue for DynLogistics was $290.3million, compared with $500.5 million for the second quarter 2013, based on  reduced volume on the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (“LOGCAP IV”) resulting from the continued drawdown of troops in Afghanistan. Additionally revenue was impacted by de-scoping on the Afghanistan Ministry of Defense Program (“AMDP”) contract, lower volume on the Department of State Civilian Police program (“CivPol”) task orders, as well as, the completion of the Worldwide Protective Services (“WPS”) program in Iraq. This decline was partially offset by increases in revenue from programs including the Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise Fort Campbell program, the War Reserve Materiel II program and the new task order for the Criminal Justice Program Support in Haiti.

Adjusted EBITDA was $12.8million compared with $14.8 million for the second quarter 2013, with the change primarily a result of lower revenue as described above. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue for the second quarter was 4.4% compared to 3.0% during the second quarter of 2013. The increase primarily relates to a favorable change in contract mix.


DynGlobal brings the full range of DI’s diverse capabilities and decades of experience to international and commercial customers. Initial activities of this segment are focused on the development and growth of this business.


Cash provided by operating activities during the six months ended June 27, 2014, was $54.1million compared with $50.9 million for the same period in 2013. Cash provided by operations for the six months ended June 27, 2014, was primarily due to improvements in working capital, specifically a decrease in accounts receivable, partially offset by a reduction in accrued liabilities, as well as cash expended to reduce accounts payable and dividends received from equity method investees.

During the quarter the Company also made a $45.0million principal prepayment on its term loan and ended the quarter with $153.4million in unrestricted cash. The Company did not have any borrowings under its revolving credit facility at quarter-end.

DSO at the end of the second quarter 2014 was 64days, a fiveday decreasefrom year end due to a focus on managing customer payment cycles.

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.
