MCLEAN, Va. – (November 13, 2018) – 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 third quarter 2018 financial results.
- Revenue of $525.0 million
- Net income attributable to Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. of $26.6 million
- Adjusted EBITDA of $45.2 million
- Total backlog of $3.9 billion
- DSO of 41 days
Third quarter 2018 revenue was $525.0 million, up 4.4% compared to $503.0 million recorded in the third quarter of 2017. The increase was primarily due to increased scope on the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program IV (“LOGCAP IV”) program and the Contractor Logistics Support: C-12, C-26, UC-35 and T-6 Transport (“CLS Transport”), Naval Test Wing Pacific O-Level Maintenance (“Naval Test Wing Pacific”) and the G4 Worldwide Logistics Support contracts. The increase in revenue was partially offset by the completion of the Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, Office of Aviation (“INL Air Wing”) extension and decreased content on the T-6 Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply (“T-6 COMBS”) Bridge contract. Net income attributable to Holdings for the third quarter of 2018 was $26.6 million compared to $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2017. The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $45.2 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to $38.1 million for the same period in 2017.
“Our team delivered another terrific quarter, with the DynLogistics business leading the way, the Company’s topline and Adjusted EBITDA grew 4.4% and 18.6%, respectively,” said chief executive officer George Krivo. “We were also especially pleased to win seats on new IDIQ vehicles, that we anticipate will extend our global footprint and be a driver of growth for many years to come.”

Reportable Segment Results
Revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $251.0 million, down 18.5% compared with $307.9 million recorded in the same period in 2017 primarily due to decreased content on the T-6 COMBS contract and the completion of INL Air Wing extension and certain other contracts. The decrease in revenue was partially offset by the new CLS Transport and Naval Test Wing Pacific contracts. Adjusted EBITDA was $20.6 million, compared to $27.3 million for the third quarter of 2017. The decrease is primarily due to the performance of the CLS T34/44/6 contract and the completion of INL Air Wing extension and certain contracts. These decreases were partially offset by the performance of the T-6 COMBS and CLS Transport contracts.
Revenue in the third quarter of 2018 was $274.9 million, up 40.4% compared with $195.8 million recorded in the same period in 2017. The increase was primarily due to increased scope on the LOGCAP IV program, the performance on the G4 Worldwide Logistics Support contract, and the completion of certain contracts. Adjusted EBITDA was $27.5 million, compared to $12.9 million for the third quarter of 2017. The increase was primarily due to higher volume as described above, the completion of certain contracts, and productivity and margin expansion across several contracts in 2018 and the absence of an $8.2 million charge for the termination of a subcontractor agreement recognized in the third quarter of 2017.
Cash provided by operating activities at the end of the third quarter of 2018 was $131.1 million compared to $10.1 million for the same period in 2017.
The unrestricted cash balance at quarter-end was $239.1 million with no borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility.
DSO at of the end of the third quarter of 2018 was 41 days, a thirteen-day decrease from year-end primarily attributable to our focus on managing customer payment cycles and the impact of an advance payment from a customer during the second quarter of 2018.
Bill Kansky, Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our strong performance through September of this year coupled with good visibility for the fourth quarter, allows us to raise full year financial guidance. We are now estimating 2018 Revenue between $2.1 billion and $2.15 billion, and Adjusted EBITDA between $185.0 million and $189.0 million. Our updated guidance also estimates full year 2018 free cash flow in excess of $120.0 million.”

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 and 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.
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 (loss) 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.
