Engility Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

CEO Commentary

"In the third quarter, we reported solid results and generated record contract awards that drove our year-to-date book-to-bill ratio to 1.4x," said Lynn Dugle, Chief Executive Officer of Engility. "We made significant progress on our other strategic objectives as we successfully refinanced our debt, which will enhance future cash flow and profitability, and strengthened our senior leadership team."

Third Quarter 2016 Results

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2016 was $512 million. GAAP operating income was $37 million and GAAP operating margin was 7.2%. GAAP net loss attributable to Engility was $17 million, or $0.46 per diluted share. Cash flow from operating activities was $32 million.

Adjusted operating income was $44 million and adjusted operating margin was 8.6%. Adjusted net income attributable to Engility was $19 million, or $0.52 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA was $49 million and adjusted EBITDA margin was 9.6%.

Engility's adjusted results for net income, operating income and EBITDA exclude $1 million of acquisition and integration costs. Adjusted operating income and adjusted net income also exclude $6 million of amortization of intangible asset expenses associated with the TASC and DRC acquisitions. In addition, adjusted net income excludes $28 million of bank refinancing transaction fees and the non-cash write-off of previously capitalized fees associated with Company's prior credit facilities, which is included in interest expense. Information about the Company's use of non-GAAP financial information is provided below under "Non-GAAP Measures."

Key Performance Indicators for the Third Quarter of 2016
  • Book-to-bill ratio was 2.2x on net bookings of $1.1 billion.
  • Total backlog was $3.7 billion and funded backlog was $702 million.
  • Days sales outstanding (DSO), net of advanced payments, was 56 days.

Significant Third Quarter 2016 Contract Awards

  • Awarded a $112 million single-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Scientific Computing Board and Office of Information Management and Technology. Through this contract, Engility will help the FDA build fast, reliable and adaptable high performance computing architectures that accommodate analyses of complex data sets. These capabilities are critical to answer FDA's front-line needs, such as rapid genomics analyses that address emerging threats to America's food supply and adverse event studies of new personalized medicine therapies.
  • Awarded a $71 million contract by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division. As part of the contract, Engility will assess the technical performance, suitability and risks of aircraft, weapon and integrated systems. The Engility team also will perform systems engineering, analysis, development, integration and testing for the introduction of warfare systems into naval aircraft.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Contract Award Activity
  • Since the end of the third quarter of 2016, Engility was awarded a contract with a ceiling value of $369 million by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Volpe National Transportation Systems Center to provide engineering and technical services, as well as financial and program management services. Under this contract, Engility will support the Federal Aviation Administration Air Traffic Organization's Program Management Office efforts to modernize our country's air traffic management system, known as NextGen.

Recent Executive Appointments
  • Michael Grasso has been appointed senior vice president for business development and strategic planning in August 2016. Grasso joins Engility after a successful 35-year tenure at Lockheed Martin. During his tenure at Lockheed Martin, Grasso served as vice president of Business Development for its Information Systems & Global Services' Civil Business segment, a multi-billion dollar division. Mike has built talented and very successful business development teams that have supported a range of Federal customers, including NASA, the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and Veterans Affairs.
  • Debra Scheider was appointed senior vice president of Contracts in October 2016. Scheider joins Engility after a distinguished career in the intelligence community and the Department of Defense. Debra served as the director of Contracts and the senior procurement executive at the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) for over ten years where she managed contract acquisition planning, selection and execution. Prior to her role at the NRO, Scheider held contracting leadership positions at the Central Intelligence Agency.

Fiscal Year 2016 Guidance

Based on Engility's financial results for the first nine months of 2016 and its outlook for the remainder of the year, the Company is updating the fiscal year 2016 guidance it issued on August 1, 2016. The Company is narrowing its revenue guidance range, and increasing its adjusted diluted EPS guidance range as a result of interest expense savings related to its debt refinancing. The Company is lowering its GAAP diluted EPS and operating cash flow guidance ranges due to fees and expenses it incurred as a result of its debt refinancing (see footnote 2 below). The Company's adjusted EBITDA guidance range remains unchanged. The table below summarizes the Company's fiscal year 2016 guidance.
         
    Current Outlook for FY 2016 (2)   Prior Outlook FY 2016
Revenue   $2.05 billion - $2.1 billion   $2.05 billion - $2.15 billion
GAAP Diluted EPS (1) (2) $(0.12) - $(0.02) $0.08 - $0.23
Adjusted Diluted EPS (1) (2) $1.56 - $1.66 $1.18 - $1.33
Adjusted EBITDA (1) $182 million - $190 million $182 million - $190 million
GAAP operating cash flow (2)   $85 million - $95 million   $105 million - $115 million
 

(1) 2016 GAAP and adjusted diluted EPS guidance assumes weighted-average outstanding shares of approximately 37.5 million. GAAP diluted EPS assumes a full-year tax benefit of approximately $2 million. Adjusted diluted EPS assumes total cash tax payments of approximately $1 million. The adjusted diluted EPS and adjusted EBITDA guidance excludes approximately $38 million of amortization of acquired intangible assets, and deal and integration costs associated with the TASC acquisition.

(2) GAAP diluted EPS guidance now includes approximately $28 million of bank refinancing transaction fees and the non-cash write-off of previously capitalized fees associated with Company's prior credit facilities. Operating cash flow guidance now includes $22 million in cash debt refinancing transaction fees, offset in part by $9 million in cash interest expense savings from August 15, 2016 through December 31, 2016. Adjusted diluted EPS is positively impacted by the $9 million in cash interest expense savings.

Non-GAAP Measures

Certain Definitions

"Adjusted Operating Income" represents Operating Income before adjustments related to the amortization of intangible assets.

"Adjusted Operating Margin" represents Adjusted Operating Income divided by revenue.

"Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA)" represents net income before income taxes, net interest and other expense and depreciation and amortization and before certain other items.

"Adjusted EBITDA Margin" represents Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue.

"Adjusted Net Income" represents net income before: (i) adjustments related to the amortization of intangible assets, and (ii) amortization or write-off of debt issuance costs and write-off of original issue discount, net of the tax effect where appropriate calculated using an assumed effective tax rate.

"Adjusted Diluted EPS" represents diluted EPS calculated using Adjusted Net Income as opposed to Net Income. Additionally, Adjusted Diluted EPS does not contemplate any adjustments to net income as required under the two-class method of calculating EPS as required in accordance with GAAP.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The tables under "Engility Holdings, Inc. Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" present Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA), Adjusted EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS, reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measure. These financial measures are calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("Non-GAAP Measures"). Engility has provided these Non-GAAP Measures to adjust for, among other things, the impact of transaction and integration costs and amortization expenses related to our acquisitions of TASC and DRC, as well as restructuring and legal and settlement costs. These items have been adjusted because they are not considered core to the Company's business or otherwise not considered operational or because these charges are non-cash or non-recurring. The Company presents these Non-GAAP Measures because management believes that they are meaningful to understanding Engility's performance during the periods presented and the Company's ongoing business. Non-GAAP Measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and therefore are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled metrics or the financial results of other companies. These Non-GAAP Measures should be considered a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

With respect to our "Fiscal Year 2016 Guidance" above, reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted EPS guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure on a forward-looking basis is not available without unreasonable efforts. We are unable to reconcile Adjusted EBITDA to net income due to our inability to predict certain non-cash items included in net income, including taxes and timing of restructuring charges. We are unable to reconcile Adjusted Diluted EPS to GAAP EPS due to our inability to predict with reasonable accuracy our future stock price, share count and net income that could be impacted by the timing of any restructuring efforts for the remainder of fiscal 2016. The disclosure of such reconciliations may imply to our investors a degree of precision in our calculations that is not possible. The variability of the above charges may result in an unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.
