As previously reported in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 2, 2016, on September 1, 2016, DynCorp International Inc. (“we” or the “Company”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc., was notified that it was not selected for award of the Worldwide Aviation Support Services contract by the U.S. Department of State (the “DoS”) Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Office of Aviation.
