DynCorp International Inc.’s Parent Reports Results for Second Quarter 2015

MCLEAN, Va. – (August 3, 2015) – 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 2015 financial results.

  • Revenue $490.2 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $26.2 million
  • Net loss attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $90.1 million
  • Total backlog of $3.0 billion
  • DSO of 78 days

Second quarter revenue was $490.2 million, compared to $591.0 million in the second quarter 2014, with the decrease primarily driven by the continued drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, the completion of certain tasks orders under the Contract Field Teams (“CFT”) program and the completion of the Counter Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office (“CNTPO”) program. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the second quarter 2015 was $90.1 million, compared with a net loss attributable to Holdings of $82.1 million in the second quarter 2014, primarily due to the revenue decline discussed above and higher selling general and administrative expenses primarily due to costs associated with cost reduction initiatives and legal costs. Net loss attributable to Holdings was also impacted by a non-cash charge for impairment of goodwill of $86.8 million in the second quarter 2015, compared with $90.7 million for the same period in 2014. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $26.2 million for the second quarter, compared with $29.7 million for the same period in 2014.

“DI is a great company that does important work for our customers around the globe”, said Lou Von Thaer, chief executive officer. “I am honored to have the opportunity to work with our more than 13,000 teammates who are focused on making our customers successful. We were recently recognized by the Army as one of sixteen ‘Tier One 2015 Top Performing Industry Partners’ as part of the Department of Defense’s Superior Supplier Incentive Program.”

Von Thaer continued, “While I’ve only been here three weeks, and there is still much work to be done, it’s apparent to me that efforts by the leadership team to stabilize the business are showing progress. Our revenues are up sequentially for the first time in nine quarters and longer term trends indicate flat to slightly increasing revenues.”

Bill Kansky, chief financial officer, added “The Company’s strong performance in the second quarter gives us confidence that our 2015 revenues will come in between $1.87 billion and $1.95 billion. We expect full year adjusted EBITDA to be between $83 million and $87 million.”

Second Quarter Highlights

    • In April 2015, DynAviation announced the award of a contract from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (“CAL FIRE”) to help suppress and control wildfires. The contract has a two-year base period with three, one-year options and a total potential contract value of $126.2 million.
    • In May 2015, the Company was selected to bid for task orders under the Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command (“TACOM”) Strategic Service Solutions Equipment Related Services contract to provide maintenance and repair support services. The contract is an eight year, IDIQ vehicle with a potential total value of $1.1 billion.
    • In June 2015, DynLogistics was awarded a contract modification to continue supporting the U.S. Government in the Republic of the Philippines. The third of four, one-year options to be exercised, is valued at $18.3 million.
    • In June 2015, the Company was selected to bid for task orders under the Air Force Contract Augmentation Program IV (“AFCAP IV”) in support of base operations and logistical support services. The contract is a competitively-awarded IDIQ vehicle with one base year and four, one-year options with a potential value of $5 billion.
    • In July, DynAviation was notified that the Department of State intends to extend the INL Air Wing contract by at least 12-months through the use of a justification and approval (“J&A”). The program is in the process of developing a proposal for the extension of services which is expected to be definitized in the fourth quarter.

Reportable Segment Results


Revenue for DynAviation was $324.5 million, compared with $300.7 million for the same period in 2014. The increase primarily was the result of higher revenues from new business wins including Contractor Logistics Support (“CLS”), Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center (“NSAWC”), Saudi National Guard (“SANG”), and Future Flexible Acquisition and Sustainment Tool (“F2AST”) contracts and continued organic growth in our Middle East contracts.  The increase in revenue was partially offset by the completion of certain task orders under the CFT program and the completion of the CNTPO program.

Adjusted EBITDA was $14.1 million, compared to $14.3 million for the second quarter of 2014, the modest decrease was attributed to lower operational tempo on the INL Air Wing program offset in part by continued organic growth and enhanced productivity on our existing Middle East contracts.


Revenue for DynLogistics was $166.2 million, compared with $290.3 million for the second quarter 2014, as a result of reductions in manning, materials and other direct costs under the Afghan Area of Responsibility (“AOR”) task order under the LOGCAP IV program. Additionally, revenue was impacted by de-scoping on the Philippines Operations Support (“POS”) contract and the completion of certain contracts. This decline was partially offset by the new Afghanistan Ministry of Interior and Afghanistan Ministry of Defense task orders under the United States Army Contracting Command and growth in our national strategic programs portfolio.

Adjusted EBITDA was $12.8 million for both the second quarter of 2014 and 2015, respectively. Profitability related to the definitization of certain contracts and the change in contract mix within the segment offset the effects of lower volume on the LOGCAP IV program.


Cash used in operating activities during the six months ended June 26, 2015, was $13.0 million compared with a cash inflow of $54.1 million for the same period in 2014.

The cash balance at quarter-end was $78.7 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

DSO at the end of the second quarter 2015 was 78 days, a 2 day decrease from year-end primarily attributable to favorable timing of 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 loss 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 Senior Unsecured Notes and/or our Senior Credit Facility. We believe 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.
