Total revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $487 million. GAAP operating income was $36 million and GAAP operating margin was 7.4%. GAAP net income attributable to Engility was $10 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. EBITDA was $47 million and EBITDA margin was 9.7%.

Adjusted operating income was $43 million and adjusted operating margin was 8.8%. Adjusted EBITDA was $47 million and adjusted EBITDA margin was 9.7%.

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 2017

  • Book-to-bill ratio for the third quarter of 2017 was 1.1x on net bookings of $541 million. Trailing twelve-month book-to-bill ratio was 1.1x on net bookings of $2.2 billion.
  • Total backlog at the end of the third quarter of 2017 was $3.7 billion, an increase of 7% from the third quarter of 2016 when excluding IRG’s total backlog from Q3 2016. IRG was divested on January 6, 2017.
  • Days sales outstanding, net of advanced payments, was 57 days at the end of the third quarter of 2017, compared to 58 days at the end of the second quarter of 2017 and 56 days at the end of the third quarter of 2016.
  • Cash flow from operating activities was $54 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $32 million for the third quarter of 2016. Our cash flow continues to be impacted positively by our significant tax attributes, which result in de minimis cash taxes each quarter.
  • During the third quarter of 2017, the company made total debt payments of $27 million. Total debt payments through the first nine months of 2017 were $86 million.

Fiscal Year 2017 Guidance

Based on the company’s financial results for the first nine months of 2017 and its outlook for the remainder of the year, the company is updating its revenue guidance range for 2017. The company’s GAAP diluted EPS, EBITDA and cash flow from operations guidance ranges remain unchanged. The table below summarizes the company’s fiscal year 2017 guidance.

                 
        Current Outlook for FY 2017 (1)       Prior Outlook FY 2017 (1)
Revenue       $1.92 billion - $1.94 billion       $1.95 billion - $2.05 billion
GAAP Diluted EPS (2) $0.75 - $0.85 $0.75 - $0.85
EBITDA (3) $173 million - $183 million $173 million - $183 million
Cash Flow from Operations       $95 million - $105 million       $95 million - $105 million
 

(1)

  This guidance reflects the IRG divestiture on January 6, 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.

(2)

2017 GAAP diluted EPS guidance includes approximately $3 million of debt refinancing-related expenses, $4 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.

(3)

2017 EBITDA guidance includes approximately $4 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, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, 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. 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.
