DynCorp International Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Financial Results

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Nov 04, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- DynCorp International Inc. (NYSE: DCP), a provider of specialized mission-critical services to civilian and military government agencies, today reports strong financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2010 ended October 2, 2009.

"We are very pleased with the company's performance in the second quarter and reaffirm our guidance for FY 2010," said William L. Ballhaus, DynCorp International's Chief Executive Officer. "We delivered solid performance on our core programs and recently closed our first acquisition. With our second quarter results, we are right where we expected to be half way through the year, and are looking forward to a strong second half."

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

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 increased by 5.4% to $821.4 million from $779.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2009. Operating income was $52.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 compared to $46.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2009 or an increase of 12.7%. Diluted earnings per share were $0.37 for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 compared to $0.23 for the second quarter of fiscal year 2009 or an increase of 60.9%.

Revenue for the Global Stabilization and Development Solutions (GSDS) segment for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 increased to $336.5 million, up $72.5 million or 27.5% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2009. GSDS revenue growth was primarily driven by the ramp up of the LOGCAP IV program in Afghanistan and Kuwait along with growth on the security portion of the Worldwide Personnel Protective Services program (WPPS) in Pakistan outpacing a decline in our Civilian Police program as a result of reductions in equipment purchases and the completion of a FEMA task order in support of flood victims in Iowa during the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

Revenue for the Global Platform Support Solutions (GPSS) segment for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 was $284.5 million, a decrease of $30.7 million, or 9.7% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2009. This decrease was primarily due to completed task orders under our Contract Field Teams (CFT) program.

Revenue for the Global Linguist Solutions (GLS) segment was $198.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, a decrease of $2.9 million, or 1.4%, from the comparable period in fiscal year 2009. This quarter-over-quarter decrease was due to the timing of the award fee accrual in the second quarter of fiscal year 2009 which represented the initial recognition of the award fee from the contract's inception.

Operating income for the recently completed quarter was $52.6 million or 6.4% of revenue as compared to $46.6 million or 6.0% of revenue in the same quarter last year. Fiscal year 2010 second quarter results included a loss on Afghanistan construction of $5.3 million. The fiscal year 2010 second quarter increase was driven primarily by a combination of profitable revenue growth, award fee recognition on certain portions of our LOGCAP IV program, non recurring revenue on our WPPS security service task orders and improvements in Afghan Construction results as compared to fiscal year 2009. These increases were offset by lower profitability in our Civilian Police program as a result of the final close out of several firm fixed price task orders in the second quarter of fiscal year 2009 and GLS award fee timing.

EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 increased by 13.4% to $58.5 million from $51.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Diluted earnings per share increased for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 to $0.37, up $0.14, or 60.9%. The increase was driven by improved operational results, lower debt related costs and a reduction in noncontrolling interest related to GLS operating results, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Year-to-Date Results

Revenue for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 increased by 7.4% to $1,606.5 million from $1,495.9 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2009. Operating income was $105.1 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 compared to $86.6 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2009 or an increase of 21.3%. Diluted earnings per share were $0.73 for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 compared to $0.54 for the first six months of fiscal year 2009 or an increase of 35.2%.

Revenue for GSDS for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 increased to $620.6 million, up $87.1 million or 16.3% compared to the first six months of fiscal year 2009. GSDS revenue growth resulted from the Kuwait and Afghanistan LOGCAP IV task orders, Air Force Contract Augmentation Program, Multinational Security Transition Command-Iraq and a combination of increased scope and our new Pakistan task order under our WPPS program. The increases in GSDS revenue were partially offset by decreases in our infrastructure work, primarily in Nigeria, and the completion of a FEMA task order in support of flood victims in Iowa during the first six months of fiscal year 2009.

Revenue for GPSS for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 decreased to $588.2 million, down $56.8 million, or 8.8% compared to the first six months of fiscal year 2009. This decrease was primarily due to the completion of certain task orders under our Contract Field Teams program.

Revenue for GLS for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 increased to $396.7 million, up $77.0 million, or 24.1%, as compared to the first six months of fiscal year 2009. GLS revenue benefited from higher award fees as a result of improved performance, higher fill rates as compared to the first six months of fiscal year 2009 and a full six months of performance during the first half of fiscal year 2010 as compared to fiscal year 2009 in which GLS was transitioning the contract from the prior provider.

Operating income for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was $105.1 million or 6.5% of revenue as compared to $86.6 million or 5.8% of revenue in the same period last year. In addition to the factors discussed above related to the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 operating income, the comparative increase in operating income was impacted by non-recurring severance related costs incurred in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009.

Diluted earnings per share increased for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 to $0.73, up $0.19, or 35.2%. The increase was driven by improved operational results and lower debt related costs, offset by the effect of noncontrolling interests as compared to the first six months of fiscal year 2009.

Operating cash flow for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was $33.4 million, compared to $38.0 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2009. Operating cash flow for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 was lower than in the first six months of fiscal year 2009 due to an increase in working capital and an increase in restricted cash. Days sales outstanding was 68 days at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, consistent with our expectation of high 60s to low 70s on an ongoing basis.

EBITDA for the first six months of fiscal year 2010 increased by 12.6% to $117.1 million from $103.9 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2009.

During the six months ended October 2, 2009, we repurchased $24.3 million of our senior subordinated notes and made a contractual $23.4 million repayment on our term debt based on an Excess Cash Flow calculation from fiscal year 2009.

We ended the quarter with $132.1 million of unrestricted cash. Net debt was $419.9 million as of October 2, 2009, an increase of $20.3 million as compared April 3, 2009. Total debt was $552.0 million at October 2, 2009, a reduction of $47.9 million from April 3, 2009.

Backlog as of October 2, 2009 was $6.7 billion as compared to $6.3 billion as of April 3, 2009, primarily due to new task orders under LOGCAP IV and our new award providing aircraft maintenance support at Sheppard Air Force Base. Included in total backlog are $2.7 billion from the GLS joint venture and $0.6 billion from LOGCAP. Funded backlog increased from $1.4 billion at the end of fiscal year 2009 to $1.8 billion at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 1.37 for the second quarter and 1.24 for the first six months of the fiscal year. The growth in funded backlog is a positive indication of continued strong demand for our services over the next several quarters and into fiscal year 2011. The Company's estimated remaining contract value as of October 2, 2009 was $9.0 billion.

Total backlog (2)

$ 6,676 $ 6,298

Estimated remaining contract value (3)

$ 9,019 $ 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 October 2, 2009 and April 3, 2009, the backlog related to GLS was $2.7 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.
