Engility Reports First Quarter 2014 Results

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Results

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $339 million and operating income was $20 million. Adjusted operating income for the first quarter was $23 million. Operating margin for the first quarter of 2014 was 5.8% and adjusted operating margin for the same period was 6.8%. Net income attributable to Engility was $9 million, or $0.50 per diluted share. Adjusted net income was $11 million, or $0.60 per diluted share. Our adjusted net income and adjusted operating margin excludes $1 million of additional amortization of intangible asset expenses and $2 million of estimated integration costs associated with our acquisition of Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC). Information about our use of non-GAAP financial information is provided below under “Non-GAAP Measures”. Results from the first quarter of 2014 include two months of financial results from DRC as the acquisition closed on January 31, 2014.

“Our first quarter results were in-line with our top and bottom line targets. We continue to execute against our plan and our continuing focus on profitability is enabling us to achieve solid bottom line results,” said Tony Smeraglinolo, President and CEO of Engility. “We also are very pleased with the early progress and success we are having with our recent DRC acquisition. The strong collaboration between our two teams has enabled us to accelerate our strategic planning process, leverage our joint capabilities to pursue new business opportunities and find cost savings across our entire organization. DRC has been a great strategic acquisition for us as it adds scale, capabilities and new customers to our business.”

“Although award activity remains slow throughout the industry by historical standards, we are encouraged by the size of our pipeline and the substantial increase in our proposal activity over the past couple months, which we expect to result in increased award activity during the second-half of 2014. As we look forward, we are confident about our business and long-term potential. We have a very strong set of contract vehicles, a broad portfolio of capabilities directed at enduring markets, and the right business model to succeed in today’s budget constrained government services market. We will continue to focus on what we can control to ensure our customers’ success, increase market share and deliver long-term value to our shareholders.”

  • Completed the acquisition of DRC. DRC adds scale to our business, and expands our addressable markets, customer base and capabilities. It also further diversifies our portfolio away from in-theater efforts to more high-end services in areas such as high performance computing, healthcare IT and financial and regulatory reform. In addition, it is expected to be accretive to our 2014 earnings and significantly accretive to 2015 earnings and beyond.

2014 Outlook

We are reiterating the fiscal year 2014 financial guidance we issued on March 13, 2014 based on our first quarter 2014 financial results and our outlook for the remainder of 2014. The table below summarizes our fiscal year 2014 guidance.

          2014 Fiscal Year Outlook
Revenue         $1.45 billion - $1.55 billion
Adjusted Diluted EPS (1) (2) $2.70 - $3.20
GAAP Diluted EPS (1) $2.24 - $2.70
Operating cash flow         $95 million - $105 million

(1) 2014 GAAP and adjusted diluted EPS guidance assumes weighted-average outstanding shares of approximately 18.4 million and a full year effective tax rate of 39.0%. It also includes eleven months of DRC’s expected financial results as the acquisition closed on January 31, 2014.

(2) Our adjusted diluted EPS guidance excludes an estimated $6.2 million, or $0.20 per share, of additional amortization of intangible asset expenses, and approximately $8.0 to $9.0 million, or $0.27 to $0.30 per share, of estimated integration costs associated with the DRC acquisition.

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, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted Diluted EPS Guidance, 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 the impact of transaction and integration costs and amortization expenses related to our acquisition of DRC. 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 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.


Engility will host a conference call at 5 P.M. ET on May 12, 2014, to discuss the financial results for our first quarter of 2014.

Listeners may access a webcast of the live conference call from the Investor Relations section of the company's website at Listeners also may access a slide presentation on the website which summarizes our 2014 first quarter results.
