MCLEAN, Va. – (November 10, 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 third quarter 2014 financial results.

Third quarter revenue was $540.3 million, compared to $766.8 million in the third quarter 2013, with the decrease primarily driven by the continued drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and delays in new business awards. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the third quarter 2014 was $71.5 million, compared with a net loss attributable to Holdings of $33.1 million in the third quarter 2013, largely due to the revenue declines discussed above, non-cash impairment charges of $51.0 million and a charge for additional contract losses associated with a contract dispute. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $28.8 million for the third quarter, compared with $29.7 million for the same period in 2013.

“Though we continued to face U.S. government budget pressures and the impact of the continued drawdown of troops in Afghanistan, these challenges were anticipated and, in response, we realigned our organization and reduced costs during the quarter to increase operational efficiency and to create new opportunities for growth,” said Jim Geisler, interim chief executive officer.

“We successfully amended our credit facility which now provides an appropriate level of flexibility and allows us to execute our strategic and operational initiatives”, said Bill Kansky, chief financial officer. “In addition, the Company made a $30.0 million prepayment on our Term Loan, bringing our 2014 total to $90.0 million, which is in line with our full year guidance and highlights our continued commitment to deleveraging the enterprise.”

Third Quarter Highlights

  • In August, the Company announced the award of a contract with the Commonwealth of Australia’s Department of Defence to provide project delivery services for Australian Defence bases. The contract has a six year base period with two, two-year options and a total potential contract value of $100.0 million.
  • In September, DynLogistics was selected to bid for task orders under a U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) contract to provide global intelligence support services (GISS). The contract is a five-year, indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) vehicle with a maximum total value of $5.0 billion.
  • In September 2014, the Company made a principal prepayment of $30.0 million on its Term Loan, bringing total prepayments for the year to $90.0 million.
  • On November 5, 2014, the Company completed an amendment to the Senior Credit Facility that reset financial maintenance covenant levels, reduced the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Credit Commitments by 20%, and modified the definition of “Consolidated Net Income” to exclude up to $35.0 million with respect to a one-time charge related to a U.S. Air Force contract.

Reportable Segments Results 


Revenue for DynAviation was $293.2 million, compared with $313.2 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 Contract Field Teams (“CFT”) and Counter Narco-Terrorism Program Office (“CNTPO”) programs, partially offset by revenue from the Army Field Maintenance (“AFM”) programs and the Multi Sensor Aerial Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance program.

Adjusted EBITDA was $26.4 million, compared to $12.7 million for the third quarter of 2013. Growth in profitability was driven by productivity gains on the INL-Air Wing program and the absence of a charge on a U.S. Air Force program that lowered earnings in the third quarter of 2013. These gains were partially offset by volume declines discussed above and a change in contract mix on the Theater Aviation Sustainment Manager (“TASM”) task order moving under the AFM contract vehicle. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2014 excludes a one-time $35 million charge related to the U.S. Air Force contract referenced above.


Revenue for DynLogistics was $247.8 million, compared with $451.4 million for the third 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”) and Combined Security Transition Command Afghanistan (“CSTC-A”) contracts, and lower volume on the Department of State Civilian Police program (“CivPol”) task orders. This decline was partially offset by increases in revenue from programs including the Africa Peacekeeping Program (“AFRICAP”), the War Reserve Materiel II program and the new task order for the Criminal Justice Program Support in Haiti.

Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million compared with $17.2 million for the third quarter 2013, with the change primarily a result of lower revenue as described above. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue for the third quarter was 1.3% compared to 3.8% during the third quarter of 2013. The decrease primarily relates to lower profitability on our LOGCAP IV program as compared to the same period in 2013.


In August 2014, we amended our operating structure by realigning the DynGlobal Group to better reflect its true nature as a pure business development organization focused on achieving our global growth objectives. DynGlobal continues to bring the full range of DI’s diverse capabilities and decades of experience to international and commercial customers. Initial activities of DynGlobal have focused on the development and growth of this business.


Cash used by operating activities during the nine months ended September 26, 2014, was $17.7 million compared with $30.2 million for the same period in 2013. Cash used in operations for the nine months ended September 26, 2014, was primarily due to our net loss and changes in working capital partially offset by dividends received from equity method investees.

During the quarter the Company also made a $30.0 million principal prepayment on its Term Loan. The cash balance at quarter-end was $53.4 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

DSO at the end of the third quarter 2014 was 75 days, a 6 day increase from year end primarily due to the timing of payment cycles on certain programs.

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 Senior Unsecured Notes and/or 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.
