DynCorp International Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Financial Results and Raises Guidance

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Aug 04, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- DynCorp International Inc. (DynCorp International) (NYSE: DCP), a provider of specialized mission-critical services to civilian and military government agencies, today reports strong financial results for its first quarter fiscal year 2010 ended July 3, 2009.

"Overall, we are very pleased with the company's performance in the first quarter and are confident we will achieve our raised guidance for fiscal year 2010. Our first quarter results along with major task order wins on WPPS and LOGCAP IV give us a strong start to the year and position us well for long-term growth," said William L. Ballhaus, DynCorp International's Chief Executive Officer. "Our core competencies in platform support and stabilization and development solutions are well aligned with the U.S. Government's focus on the application of smart power to support national security and foreign policy objectives."

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Results Compared to First Quarter Fiscal Year 2009

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 increased by 9.5% to $785.2 million from $716.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. Operating income was $52.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 compared to $40.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 or an increase of 31.3%. Diluted earnings per share were $0.36 for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 compared to $0.31 for the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 or an increase of 16.1%. EBITDA for the quarter was $58.5 million, an increase of 11.9% from the corresponding quarter from last fiscal year.

Revenue for the Global Stabilization and Development Solutions (GSDS) segment for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 increased to $284.1 million, up $14.5 million or 5.4% compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. GSDS revenue benefited from the LOGCAP IV Kuwait task orders as well as scope increases on the Africa Peacekeeping Program in Somalia. The increases in the GSDS segment were partially offset by delays on our Afghanistan construction contracts.

Revenue for the Global Platform Support Solutions (GPSS) segment for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 decreased to $303.6 million, down $26.0 million, or 7.9% compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. GPSS revenue benefited from the increased scope of services on the MRAP contract and increases on the Counter Narcotics Technical Program Office (CNTPO); however, it was offset by declines in other areas including certain Field Teams task orders for work at Ft. Hood, a portion of the work at Ft. Campbell and services provided in Korea. Also contributing to this decrease was the prior year completion of construction work in Afghanistan on the INL Air Wing program.

Revenue for the Global Linguist Solutions (GLS) segment increased to $198.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, up $79.9 million, or 67.5%, from the comparable period in fiscal year 2009. GLS experienced an increase year-over-year due to the benefit of a full quarter of program performance this year compared to the partial quarter of performance a year ago due to the transition period. Also contributing to the revenue increase is the recognition of award fee this quarter versus no award fee recognized a year ago.

Operating income increased 31.3%, to $52.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, compared to $40.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. The increase in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 was driven, principally, by a combination of revenue growth, benefits from selling, general and administrative (SG&A) efficiencies and the impact of prior years' severance in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. These increases were partially offset by additional contract losses from our Afghanistan construction of $3.2 million.

Operating cash flow increased $76.5 million to $5.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, compared to $71.1 million of cash used in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. The increase was driven by the use of cash associated with the ramp up of the INSCOM contract a year ago. Also contributing to this increase was net income growth and continued focus on SG&A expense and working capital management. Days sales outstanding (DSO) was 71 days at the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, compared to 82 days at the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. The DSO improvement was due to the billing and collection improvements implemented in fiscal year 2009.

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, we repurchased a portion of our senior subordinated notes and made a contractual $23.4 million repayment on our term debt based on excess cash flow from fiscal year 2009. After these financing activities, we ended the quarter with $159.3 million of cash. Net debt, which is total debt less cash and cash equivalents, was $407.1 million as of July 3, 2009, a reduction of $151.0 million as compared to the same quarter a year ago. Total debt was $566.4 million at July 3, 2009, a reduction of $33.5 million from April 3, 2009.

Backlog as of July 3, 2009 was $6.7 billion as compared to $6.3 billion as of April 3, 2009, primarily due to a new Worldwide Personal Protective Services (WPPS) task order which is expected to ramp up in our second fiscal quarter of 2010. Included in total backlog is $2.9 billion from the GLS joint venture and $79 million from LOGCAP IV. DynCorp International's estimated remaining contract value as of July 3, 2009 was $8.7 billion.

Fiscal Year 2010 Guidance

DynCorp International is revising the previously provided guidance for its fiscal year ending April 2, 2010.

$ 8,415

(1) Backlog consists of funded and unfunded amounts under contracts. Funded backlog is equal to the amounts actually appropriated by a customer for payment of goods and services less actual revenue recognized as of the measurement date under that appropriation. Unfunded backlog is the actual dollar value of unexercised priced contract options and the unfunded portion of exercised contract options. Most of our U.S. government contracts allow the customer the option to extend the period of performance of a contract for a period of one or more years. These priced options may or may not be exercised at the sole discretion of the customer. Historically, it has been our experience that the customer has typically exercised contract options.

(2) As of July 3, 2009 and April 3, 2009, the backlog related to GLS was $2.9 billion and $3.1 billion, respectively, and is included in unfunded backlog in the table above.

(3) Estimated remaining contract value represents total backlog plus management's estimate of future revenue under IDIQ contracts for task or delivery orders that have not been awarded. Future revenue represents management's estimate of revenue that will be recognized from the end of current task orders until the end of the IDIQ contract term and is based on our experience and performance under our existing contracts and management judgments and estimates with respect to future task or delivery order awards. Although we believe our estimates are reasonable, there can be no assurance that our existing contracts will result in actual revenue in any particular period or at all. Our estimated remaining contract value could vary or even change significantly depending upon various factors including government policies, government budgets and appropriations, the accuracy of our estimates of work to be performed under time and material contracts and whether we successfully compete with any multiple bidders in IDIQ contracts.
