“We are pleased to report solid first quarter results that reflect improving company fundamentals,” said Lynn Dugle, Chief Executive Officer of Engility. “In particular, we generated strong margins and a book-to-bill ratio of greater than one for the quarter. And, continuing the initiative to upgrade our leadership, we successfully recruited a proven executive, Scott Whatmough, to lead our Defense Group. Looking forward, we are aggressively pursuing organic growth by targeting larger opportunities that are aligned with our differentiated capabilities.”

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $485 million. GAAP operating income was $34 million and GAAP operating margin was 7.0%. GAAP net income attributable to Engility was $7 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. Cash flow used in operating activities was $12 million.

Adjusted operating income was $41 million and adjusted operating margin was 8.4%. Adjusted net income attributable to Engility was $21 million, or $0.55 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA was $45 million and adjusted EBITDA margin was 9.4%.

Information about the Company's use of non-GAAP financial information is provided below under “Non-GAAP Measures.”

Key Performance Indicators for the First Quarter of 2017

  • Book-to-bill ratio for the first quarter of 2017 was 1.2x. Net bookings for the first quarter of 2017 were $567 million, a 43% increase over the first quarter of 2016.
  • Total backlog at the end of the first quarter of 2017 was $3.5 billion, an increase of 20% from the first quarter of 2016.
  • Days sales outstanding (DSO) at the end of the first quarter of 2017, net of advanced payments, was 60 days, compared to 59 days at the end of the first quarter of 2016.
  • Cash flow used in operating activities was $12 million for the first quarter of 2017.
  • During the first quarter of 2017, the Company made total debt payments of $32 million.

Significant First Quarter 2017 Developments

  • In March 2017, Scott Whatmough was appointed senior vice president of the Company’s Defense Group. Whatmough joined Engility after a successful 30 year tenure at Raytheon, where he most recently led a $900 million military electronics systems business. Whatmough will continue to drive Engility’s Defense Group’s strategic shift to higher-end markets such as cybersecurity, enterprise modernization and other areas where the Company can differentiate its solutions.
  • In February 2017, the Company closed on the repricing of its aggregate $803 million B1 and B2 term loans. As a result of this transaction, the Company expects to lower its fiscal year 2017 interest expense by approximately $5 million after fees and expenses.
  • In January 2017, the Company completed the sale of its previously wholly-owned subsidiary International Resources Group Ltd. (IRG). The sale was the result of the Company’s strategic review of its business and determination that the USAID portion of the Company’s international operations no longer closely aligned with its future strategic direction.

Fiscal Year 2017 Guidance

The Company is reiterating the fiscal year 2017 guidance it issued on March 9, 2017, based on Engility’s financial results for the first quarter of 2017 and its outlook for the remainder of 2017. The table below summarizes the Company’s fiscal year 2017 guidance. This guidance reflects the February 2017 repricing of the Company’s aggregate $803 million B1 and B2 term loans, and the IRG divestiture in January 2017. In fiscal year 2016, IRG generated $58 million in revenue and $1 million in EBITDA and operating income. IRG’s revenue and profitability results are included in the Company’s fiscal year 2016 historical financial results, but are immaterial to Engility’s 2017 financial results as this business was sold on January 6, 2017.

             
            Fiscal Year 2017 Guidance
Revenue           $1.95 billion - $2.05 billion
GAAP Diluted EPS (1) $0.75 - $0.85
EBITDA (2) $173 million - $183 million
Operating Cash Flow           $95 million - $105 million
 
   

(1)

    2017 GAAP diluted EPS guidance includes approximately $3 million of restructuring and integration costs and $25 million of amortization expense related to intangible assets acquired by the Company. It also assumes weighted-average outstanding shares of approximately 38 million and a full-year effective tax rate of 37 percent.

(2)

2017 EBITDA guidance includes approximately $3 million of restructuring and integration costs.
 

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 amortization expenses related to our acquisitions of TASC, Inc. (“TASC”) and Dynamics Research Corporation, costs associated with a loss or gain on the disposal or sale of property, plant and equipment, acquisition and restructuring-related expenses, legal and settlement costs, refinancing-related expenses, and the impact of certain tax related items. 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 2017 Guidance” above, reconciliation of EBITDA guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure on a forward-looking basis is not available without unreasonable efforts. We are unable to reconcile 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. The disclosure of such reconciliations may imply to our investors a degree of precision in our calculations that is not possible. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.
