Kratos Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2016 Financial Results

Successfully Receives Two New High Performance Tactical Unmanned Aerial System Program Contract Awards

Affirms 2016 Full Year Financial Guidance

SAN DIEGO, May 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, today reported its first quarter fiscal 2016 financial results.  For the first quarter ended March 27, 2016, Kratos generated Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA of $153.0 million and $4.6 million, respectively, consistent with the Company's previous expectations. 

As communicated with the Company's fiscal 2015 financial report in March 2016, during the first quarter of 2016, Kratos continued to maintain significant engineering, technical, management and other unmanned aerial system (UAS) related resources in anticipation of successfully being awarded three new high performance tactical UAS program opportunities which the Company was competitively pursuing.   The maintaining of these resources and the associated costs related to the pursuit of these new UAS opportunities significantly adversely impacted Kratos' first quarter 2016 Adjusted EBITDA.  Recently, Kratos was successfully awarded and is now under contract for two of the three new opportunities, with the third UAS opportunity not yet being formally awarded.  Kratos will continue to maintain the resources related to the third new UAS opportunity in anticipation of successfully receiving a contract award in the near future. 

Also as communicated with the Company's fiscal 2015 financial report in March 2016, during the first quarter of 2016, Kratos executed a significant restructuring, facility consolidation and cost reduction, as more fully described below.  If such cost reduction actions had been in effect for the entire first quarter of 2016, first quarter Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA would have been $6.6 million.

Operationally, Kratos' business units reporting first quarter 2016 year over year organic revenue growth included: Microwave Electronics, which generated first quarter 2016 revenue of $12.8 million, a 23.4 percent increase over the first quarter of 2015; Unmanned Systems, which generated first quarter 2016 revenue of $14.2 million, a 14.5 percent increase over the first quarter of 2015; and Satellite, Technology & Training, which generated first quarter 2016 revenue of $59.0 million, an 11.3 percent increase over the first quarter of 2015.  In the first quarter of 2016, Kratos' Unmanned Systems Division generated a book-to-bill ratio of 2.5 to 1.0, including the unmanned drone system contract award which the Company reported today.  Important program areas supported by Kratos include Unmanned Aerial, Ground and Seaborne Systems, Satellite Communications, Cybersecurity, Electromagnetic Rail Gun, Directed Energy, Hypersonics, Missile and Radar Systems, Missile Defense, Signal Monitoring and Intelligence and Training Systems.

Kratos' book-to-bill ratio in the first quarter of 2016 was 1.0 to 1.0.  Kratos' total backlog at the end of the first quarter of 2016 was $909 million, including funded and unfunded backlog of $554 million and $355 million, respectively.  Kratos' bid and proposal pipeline at March 27, 2016 was $7.1 billion

Important contract awards and achievements reported by Kratos for the first quarter of 2016 included:

  • Kratos received a Phase 1 contract for DARPA's Gremlins program, which seeks to develop innovative technologies and systems enabling reliable airborne launch and airborne recovery of volley quantities of low-cost reusable unmanned air systems.

    Such systems, or "gremlins," would be deployed with a mixture of mission payloads capable of generating a variety of effects in a distributed and coordinated manner, providing U.S. forces with improved operational flexibility at a lower cost than is possible with conventional, monolithic platforms.

    Phase 1 of the Gremlins program is intended to pave the way for a proof-of-concept flight demonstration that would validate the airborne launch and airborne recovery concept of multiple gremlins.

    The Gremlins program plans to explore numerous technical areas, including:
    -- Launch and recovery techniques, equipment and aircraft integration concepts
    -- Low-cost, limited-life airframe designs that leverage existing technology and require only modest modifications to current aircraft.
    Individual Phase 1 contracts have been awarded to four contractors.
  • Kratos successfully received and is now under contract for a second high performance tactical UAS opportunity.  Kratos is unable to provide additional information as to this new contract award at this time due to customer confidentiality obligations and related other considerations, though we anticipate being able to do so in the future.
  • Kratos received a $37.0 million firm-fixed-price contract for Air Force Subscale Aerial Target (AFSAT) peculiar spares, contractor logistics support, and out of warranty repairs. Kratos/CEi will provide procurement of peculiar reparable spares and consumables for use in the AFSAT Program during operations at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida; and the Utah Test and Training Range.
  • Kratos received an $18.7 million award for the Lot 12 option on the previously awarded AFSAT Lots 11-13 production contract.  Pursuant to this award, Kratos/CEi will provide an additional quantity of 21 AFSAT production target aircraft plus the associated warranty.
  • Kratos received contract awards totaling approximately $10.5 million in missile defense, radar system and specialty product orders.
  • Kratos is a key member of the Trabus Technologies, Inc. team that was awarded a $7.4 million Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract supporting SSC Pacific Code 551. Under this contract the team will provide engineering, technical and programmatic services for airborne communication and networking systems, and associated certification and information assurance for new development, current operations and planned upgrades. This contract includes two one-year option periods, which if exercised, would bring the total contract value to $12.6 million.
  • Kratos received a contract by the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division for Oriole Thrust Vector Control (TVC) Systems valued at $5.5 million. Under the awarded contract Kratos will deliver several Oriole TVC systems to support ongoing experimental, test and other support missions. The Oriole TVC system provides increased capability and dispersion reduction for Kratos' Oriole solid propellant rocket motor.
  • Kratos received a $21.4 million IDIQ, cost-reimbursement contract for technical support in the areas of project management, system engineering, research, test and evaluation, logistics, integration, technical troubleshooting, installation, and security.  This new contract award has a three-year base period and two one-year option periods which, if exercised, would bring the potential value of this contract to $36.2 million
  • Kratos received a new task order valued at $11.2 million for satellite and communication system products, hardware and equipment from an unnamed U.S. government agency. This is the third task order against a $49.0 million firm fixed price, IDIQ, single contract award to the company announced last year.
  • Kratos' ISI business unit was awarded a contract by SKY Perfect JSAT (SJC) for the design, supply, delivery, installation and test of a TT&C antenna and associated RF system for the JCSAT-16 satellite.  The project, which has successfully completed the critical design review phase, is scheduled for completion this summer, well in advance of the JCSAT-16 launch, scheduled for later in 2016.

For the first quarter ended March 27, 2016, approximately 62 percent of Kratos' revenue was derived from U.S. Federal Government related customers, approximately 27 percent from commercial, state and local government customers, and approximately 11 percent from international customers.

In the first quarter of 2016, Kratos executed significant cost reductions and a related facility consolidation in its Modular System Division (MSD) in a restructuring move, which resulted in the closing of Kratos' Charleston Marine Container (CMCI) manufacturing plant in April 2016, and the transfer of associated work to other MSD facilities.  The facility consolidation is being driven by the need to improve MSD manufacturing efficiencies, operational performance, profit margins and cash flow.  Additionally, in the first quarter of 2016, Kratos executed a significant cost reduction action and reorganization in its Public Safety & Security Business, with the objective of improving operational performance, profit margins and cash flow.  The majority of the actions related to these restructuring activities, facility consolidation, headcount and other cost reductions were completed by the end of Kratos' fiscal first quarter.   These restructuring activities resulted in an aggregate headcount reduction of over 120 personnel.  The Company has provided a table reflecting the pro forma total estimated impact of these cost reduction and facility consolidation actions of approximately $2.0 million, as if such actions had been effected for the entire first quarter of 2016, resulting in  first quarter Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA of $6.6 million.

Kratos' first quarter 2016 cash flow and financial results from operations were reduced by continued significant discretionary internally funded investments the Company is making, primarily in the unmanned systems and satellite communications areas, including maintaining a significant number of critical resources and key personnel in the Company's Unmanned Systems Division, previously working on the Company's UTAP-22 initiative, in anticipation of the two expected and recently awarded new UAS opportunities. 

Cash flow from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2016 was a use of approximately $11.5 million, with the total use in cash of $8.4 million for the quarter.

For the quarter ended March 27, 2016, adjusted net loss per share or EPS was $(0.13) and GAAP EPS was a loss of $(0.37).  Adjusted EPS excludes  non-cash amortization expenses, as the Company has historically been acquisitive, non-cash stock compensation costs,  foreign transaction gains and losses, and certain non-recurring items such as excess capacity and restructuring costs, and includes cash actually expected to be paid for income taxes on continuing operations, excluding the impact of the discontinued operations, and reflecting the benefit of the Company's net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $200 millionKratos believes that reporting Adjusted EPS is a meaningful metric to present the Company's financial results. 

Eric DeMarco, Kratos' President and CEO, said, "Today we announced that Kratos recently received two strategically important contract awards in the tactical unmanned aerial systems market, including a DARPA Phase I Gremlins contract, and a second high performance tactical unmanned aerial system award.  During the first quarter Kratos also continued to make progress in the customer community with our UTAP-22 Tornado initiative, which is Kratos' initial tactical platform related to the Unmanned Combat Aerial System market space.   With these new unmanned tactical system contract awards and with our UTAP-22, in addition to Kratos being the leader in high performance target drones used to train pilots, systems and the warfighter, Kratos is now a new entrant in the tactical unmanned combat drone for force multiplication market space.  Additionally, we remain optimistic and we continue to retain significant resources related to a third new high performance tactical UAS program opportunity which we hope to be successful on in the near future."  Mr. DeMarco went on, "During the first quarter Kratos continued to support certain U.S. Government Agency customers related to the command and control of swarms of unmanned aerial vehicles, related mission capabilities, tactics and also defensive capabilities against swarms of UAVs, including high powered directed energy and laser systems.  We believe the command and control of unmanned aerial, ground and seaborne systems, along with providing electronics and avionics for unmanned systems is a key growth opportunity area of our Company."

Mr. DeMarco continued, "In the first quarter Kratos' Unmanned Systems, Satellite Communications and Microwave Products businesses all generated very strong year over year organic growth, which is expected to continue throughout 2016, as we are seeing particular strength in each of these areas.  Importantly, Kratos' Satellite Communication, Technology and Training business, the largest of our Company, had a particularly strong first quarter, driven by increased demand for protected satellite communications, unmanned system communications and bandwidth requirements.  Additionally, the performance of Kratos' Rocket Support Services, BMD Targets and Defense Services businesses was solid, and is also expected to remain strong throughout 2016."  Mr. DeMarco went on, "As we discussed when we reported Kratos' fiscal 2015 results, in the first quarter of 2016, Kratos executed a restructuring, facility consolidation and major cost reductions in Kratos' Modular Systems and Public Safety & Security businesses, which actions are expected to position these businesses for significantly improved profitability and cash flow generation beginning in the second quarter of 2016, on an expected reduced business and revenue base.  These actions were substantially completed in the first quarter of 2016, and are expected to be completed in the next couple of months." 

Mr. DeMarco concluded, "With Kratos' first quarter results coming in as expected, our core businesses exhibiting strong performance that is expected to continue, and the restructuring and cost reduction actions we executed, we are affirming our previously discussed full year 2016 base case financial guidance and related trajectory for the Company.  Additionally, we are also currently in pursuit of certain new, large opportunities in Kratos' Unmanned Systems, Satellite Communications, Technology, Training and Microwave Electronics business areas, including an additional expected UAS award, a large new unmanned target drone system opportunity we are currently in contract negotiations on, a new expected to be sole source unmanned drone system opportunity and an exciting additional opportunity currently expected to be awarded late this year.  Certain of these new opportunities are expected to be awarded later this year, where if we are successful, could be additive to our base 2016 business case."   

Management will discuss the financial results and its affirmed fiscal year 2016 guidance in a conference call beginning at 2:00 p.m. Pacific (5:00 p.m. Eastern) today. Analysts and institutional investors may participate in the conference call by dialing (866) 393-0674, and referencing the call by ID number 90318303.  The general public may access the conference call by dialing (877) 344-3935 or on the day of the event by visiting for a simultaneous webcast.

Note: (1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as GAAP net income (loss) plus (income) loss from discontinued   
operations, net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation, amortization of intangible  
assets, foreign transaction gain (loss), refinancing related costs, costs related to pending customer change orders, acquisition and   
restructuring related items, contract design retrofit costs, investment in unmanned combat systems, litigation related charges, and  
unused office space expense.      
Adjusted EBITDA as calculated by us may be calculated differently than Adjusted EBITDA for other companies.  We have provided  
Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is a commonly used measure of financial performance in comparable companies and is provided to  
help investors evaluate companies on a consistent basis, as well as to enhance an understanding of our operating results.  Adjusted   
EBITDA should not be construed as either an alternative to net income or as an indicator of our operating performance or an alternative 
to cash flows as a measure of liquidity.  Please refer to the following table below that reconciles GAAP net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA. 
(2) Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA as calculated by us may be calculated differently than Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA for other companies.  We 
have provided Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA to reflect the impact of the restructuring actions that we took during the first quarter 2016 
to eliminate personnel costs in our PSS and Modular Systems businesses.  We believe that Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA    
is helpful for investors to understand the pro forma full quarter's impact of the restructuring     
activities as if these actions had occurred at the beginning of the quarter.
