DynCorp International Inc.’s Parent Reports Results for Third Quarter 2016

MCLEAN, Va. – (November 14, 2016) – 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 2016 financial results.

  • Revenue $503.4 million
  • Net loss attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $7.2 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $26.5 million
  • Total backlog of $2.7 billion
  • DSO of 58 days

Third quarter revenue was $503.4 million, compared to $479.8 million in the third quarter 2015, with the increase primarily driven by the Afghanistan Life Support Services (“ALiSS”) contract and increased content from T-6 Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply (“T-6 COMBS”), partially offset by decreased volume on the INL Air Wing program and the continued drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan which impacted the demand for services under our LOGCAP IV program. Net loss attributable to Holdings for the third quarter 2016 was $7.2 million, compared with a net loss attributable to Holdings of $15.7 million in the third quarter 2015. The loss in the third quarter 2016 was primarily due to Global Advisory Group expenses and an increase to interest expense related to the Refinancing Transactions. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $26.5 million for the third quarter, compared with $26.7 million for the same period in 2015.

“Our team delivered a solid third quarter,” said Lou Von Thaer, chief executive officer. “Streamlining the organization into three business units makes us more competitive, more responsive to our customers and keeps us on a path of growth.”

Bill Kansky, chief financial officer, added “We are raising 2016 full year adjusted EBITDA guidance to $97 million at the midpoint of the range, based on Q3 performance in DynLogistics and visibility into fourth quarter profitability.”

Third Quarter Highlights

  • In September 2016, DynLogistics announced the award of an 11-month task order contract modification valued at $111 million that began August 1, 2016, to continue providing base life support and maintenance services in Afghanistan under the LOGCAP IV contract. Immediately following this modification, we were awarded several additional LOGCAP IV contract modifications valued at approximately $50 million annually, beginning October 1, 2016, which will add over 100 new services and require more than 900 additional personnel across four locations.
  • In September 2016, DynLogistics announced the award of the Egyptian Personnel Support Services (“EPSS”) contract to provide support for daily living in the Arab Republic of Egypt. The contract, which started March 25, 2016, has a two-year base period and a one year option period and a total potential contract value of $22.5 million.
  • In September 2016, DynAviation announced the award of a contract modification for the second option period on the Contractor Logistics Support contract to provide maintenance and logistics support to the United States Navy T-34, T-44, and T-6 aircraft programs. The modification has a total potential value of $107.2 million.
  • In the quarter, DynLogistics announced the award of three additional task orders on the Air Force Augmentation Program (“AFCAP IV”) from the U.S. Air Force. The amounts of awards taken together total $13.2 million as further described in Notable Events section of our third quarter Form 10‐
  • On September 1, 2016, we were notified that the U.S. Department of State (“DoS”), had awarded the re-compete of the INL Air Wing contract to another company. On September 11, 2016, we filed a protest with the GAO challenging the DoS agency’s award determination. Under applicable law, a decision by the GAO is generally issued within 100 days of the filing of the protest.
  • On September 27, 2016, DynAviation finalized negotiations with the DoS Office of Acquisition Management regarding an extension of services on the INL Air Wing program and definitized an agreement for a one-year extension through October 31, 2017. The extension has a total potential value of $292.8 million.

Reportable Segment Results


Revenue for DynAviation was $326.4 million, compared with $316.3 million for the same period in 2015. The increase was primarily a result of increased content from T-6 COMBS and T-34/T-44/T-6 contracts. The increase in revenue was partially offset by decreased volume on the INL Air Wing program.

Adjusted EBITDA was $8.1 million, compared to $10.4 million for the third quarter of 2015. The decrease was primarily attributed to a charge taken on T-6 COMBS, offset by the restructuring of Heliworks, the improved performance and execution of an option year on our T-34/T-44/T-6 contract and the absence of a charge taken in 2015 for a certain Navy contract.


Revenue for DynLogistics was $177.3 million, compared with $163.2 million for the third quarter 2015. The increase was primarily a result the new ALiSS contract, the new contract from the U.S. Army Contracting Command to provide technical support services to the Iraqi Army in Taji and a favorable settlement on a legacy program. This increase was partially offset by reductions in manning, materials and other direct costs under the Afghan Area of Responsibility (“AOR”) task order and completion of the Kuwait task orders under the LOGCAP IV program and the completion of certain other contracts.

Adjusted EBITDA was $21.5 million, compared to $18.6 million for the third quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily attributed to a favorable settlement on a legacy program, the ALiSS Contract and productivity on training contracts, partially offset by the completion of certain programs in 2016.


Cash provided by operating activities during the nine months ended September 30, was $24.7 million compared with a cash outflow of $25.5 million for the same period in 2015.

The unrestricted cash balance at quarter-end was $98.9 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

DSO at the end of the third quarter 2016 was 58, a 15 day decrease from year-end primarily attributable to our 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 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 Secured Second Lien Notes and/or our New 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.
