  • Fourth quarter adjusted operating margin of 7.5% and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.67
  • Book-to-bill ratio of 1.0x for fourth quarter 2014
  • Fourth quarter 2014 cash flow from operations of $22 million and $102 million for fiscal year 2014

CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 3, 2015-- Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.

Fourth Quarter 2014 Results

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $320 million and operating income was $13 million. Adjusted operating income for the fourth quarter was $24 million. Operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2014 was 4.2% and adjusted operating margin for the same period was 7.5%. Net income attributable to Engility was $2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share. Adjusted net income attributable to Engility was $12 million, or $0.67 per diluted share. Our adjusted net income and adjusted operating margin exclude $9 million of TASC and Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC) acquisition and integration costs, and $2 million of additional amortization of intangible asset expenses associated with our acquisition of DRC. Information about our use of non-GAAP financial information is provided below under "Non-GAAP Measures".

"From a bookings perspective, we had a strong second-half of 2014," said Tony Smeraglinolo, President and CEO of Engility. "During the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2014, we achieved a book-to-bill ratio that exceeded 1.0x. We also were able to deliver strong cash flow results for the year and achieved top and bottom line results that were within our fiscal year 2014 guidance ranges. Although contract awards have increased and our market appears to be more stable, we still are experiencing delayed contract award and start dates, which is reflected in our fourth quarter revenue performance."

"Last week, we announced the closing of our TASC acquisition, which truly is a significant milestone in our young history as a public company. The combination of our two complementary businesses is transformational and represents an opportunity to create a top-tier government services company. This acquisition is expected to substantially increase our free cash flow, be significantly accretive to 2016 adjusted EPS and nearly double our revenue which will enhance our cost competitiveness. It also is consistent with our growth strategy to further balance and diversify our customer base and capabilities, add substantial scale to our business and increase our addressable market. We look forward to bringing our highly efficient business model to TASC's customers," said Smeraglinolo.

Key Performance Indicators

  • Contract funded orders in the fourth quarter of 2014 were $334 million, compared to $357 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The book-to-bill ratio for the fourth quarter of 2014 was 1.0x, compared to 1.1x in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • Funded backlog was $602 million in both the fourth quarter of 2014 and the fourth quarter of 2013.

Information about our use of non-GAAP financial information is provided below under "Non-GAAP Measures".

2015 Guidance

Since the TASC acquisition closed three business days ago, ahead of our original schedule, we will provide 2015 financial guidance shortly after we present the consolidated plan to the new Engility board in mid-March. When we issue guidance, it will include ten months of TASC’s performance.

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.
