MCLEAN, Va. – (August 14, 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 second quarter 2019 financial results.
- Revenue of $487.8 million
- Net income attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $5.2 million
- Adjusted EBITDA of $38.1 million
- Total backlog of $3.6 billion
- DSO of 44 days
Second quarter 2019 revenue was $487.8 million, down 11.4% compared to $550.4 million recorded in the second quarter of 2018. 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 wind down of the T-6 Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply (“T-6 COMBS”) Bridge contract, partially offset by increased scope on the Air Force Contractor Augmentation Program (“AFCAP”) and the Contractor Logistics Support: C-12, C-26, UC-35 and T-6 Transport (“CLS Transport”) contract. Net income attributable to Holdings for the second quarter of 2019 was $5.2 million compared to $24.8 million in the second quarter of 2018. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $38.1 million for the second quarter of 2019 compared to $48.9 million for the same period in 2018.
“We are pleased with second quarter results especially the large new business wins,” said George Krivo, Chief Executive Officer.

Reportable Segment Results
Revenue in the second quarter of 2019 was $234.3 million, down 21.2% compared with $297.5 million recorded in the same period in 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of the INL Air Wing extension, the wind down of the T-6 COMBS Bridge contract and the completion of the MD530 subcontract. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by increased scope on the CLS Transport contract.
Adjusted EBITDA was $14.0 million, compared to $25.0 million for the second quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the completion of the INL Air Wing extension and the MD530 subcontract, and the performance of the Contractor Logistics Support: T-34, T-44, T-6 (“CLS T34/44/6”) contract and the Progressive Structural Inspection and Depot Level Maintenance contract (“U.S. Coast Guard C-130”) for C-130 aircraft. These decreases were partially offset by the performance of the CLS Transport contract.
Revenue in the second quarter of 2019 was $253.6 million, up 0.9% compared with $251.2 million recorded in the same period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased scope on the AFCAP and Afghanistan Life Support Services (“ALiSS”) contracts, partially offset by the completion of certain contracts.
Adjusted EBITDA was $26.7 million, compared to $29.2 million for the second quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily due to scope reductions on certain contracts and the completion of certain contracts, partially offset by productivity and margin expansion across the segment.
Cash provided by operating activities at the end of the second quarter of 2019 was $60.7 million compared to cash provided by operating activities of $105.8 million for the same period in 2018.
The unrestricted cash balance at quarter-end was $195.6 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.
DSO was 44 and 49 days as of the end of the second quarter of 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, as the Company continued to focus on managing its customer payment cycles and due to the impact of an advanced payment from a customer during the second quarter of 2019.
Bill Kansky, Chief Financial Officer, added, “The Company is performing well and our free cash flow generation through the second quarter of 2019 of $59.3 million, which is ahead of plan, allowed the Company to make a voluntary $30.0 million prepayment on its term loan in the quarter.”

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 governing the Second Lien Notes (the “Indenture”) and the 2016 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.
