Kratos Reports Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

 Revenues of $196.2 Million Increase 18.6 Percent over Prior Year

Kratos Unmanned Systems Business Revenues of $41.6 Million Increase 127.3 Percent
over the Prior Year and Increase Sequentially 87.4 Percent over Second Quarter 2017

Third Quarter Bookings of $228.7M, Book to Bill Ratio of 1.20 to 1.0

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, today reported its third quarter 2017 financial results.  For the third quarter ended October 1, 2017, Kratos generated Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA of $196.2 million and $14.5 million, respectively.  Third quarter 2017 Revenues increased 18.6 percent over the third quarter of 2016 and 5.7 percent sequentially over the second quarter of 2017. Third quarter 2017 Adjusted EBITDA increased 26.1 percent sequentially over second quarter 2017 Adjusted EBITDA.  Third quarter 2017 bookings were $228.7 million, resulting in a Book to Bill Ratio of 1.2 to 1.0.  Backlog at October 1, 2017 was $798.9 million.  Kratos Bid and Proposal pipeline at the end of the third quarter 2017 was $6.6 billion, up from $5.9 billion at the end of the second quarter.  

For the third quarter ended October 1, 2017, Kratos' Unmanned Systems generated year over year revenue growth of 127.3 percent, from $18.3 million in the third quarter of 2016 to $41.6 million in the third quarter of 2017. Kratos Unmanned Systems' Adjusted EBITDA of $5.0 million was up 400 percent over Adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2016.  Contributing to Unmanned Systems' revenue growth was the commencement of Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) on a new unmanned aerial drone system for a U.S. Government customer, and production on multiple new unmanned aerial drone system programs.  Kratos' Unmanned Systems Book to Bill Ratio in the third quarter was 1.4 to 1.0.

In the third quarter of 2017, all Kratos reportable business segments generated year over year organic revenue growth from 2016.  Kratos' largest business unit, Satellite Communications, Cyber Security, Technology and Training Solutions, which is the Company's largest contributor of  Revenue, EBITDA and Cash Flow generation, had a strong third quarter, including reporting a Book to Bill Ratio of 1.3 to 1.0.  For the third quarter of 2017, approximately 60% of Kratos' revenue was derived from U.S. Federal Government related customers, approximately 28% from commercial, state and local government customers, and approximately 12% from international customers. 

As expected, the operating profit and Adjusted EBITDA for Kratos' Government Solutions segment had a less favorable mix of products sold during the third quarter of 2017 as compared to the prior year.  The Company expects a more favorable mix of revenues in the fourth quarter based upon production and execution schedules, which is expected to result in higher operating and Adjusted EBITDA margins for the Government Solutions segment. 

For the third quarter of 2017, adjusted income per share was $0.03 and net loss was $4.3 million. Adjusted income per share excludes loss from discontinued operations, 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 acquisition and restructuring related items and other, and includes cash actually expected to be paid for income taxes on continuing operations, reflecting the benefit of the Company's net operating loss carryforwards of over $300 million.  Kratos believes that reporting adjusted income (loss) per share is a meaningful metric to present the Company's financial results.  GAAP earnings per share were a loss of $(0.05).    

Kratos is adjusting its full year 2017 guidance for revenues of $720 to $740 million, to $735 million to $745 million, and affirming its full year Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $52 to $54 million.  Kratos is providing fourth quarter 2017 revenue guidance of $185 to $195 million and Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $15.4 million to $17.4 million

Eric DeMarco, Kratos' President and CEO, said, "Kratos had a solid third quarter, beating both our revenue and EBITDA forecasts, with strong performance by each of our core businesses, Satellite Communications, Microwave Electronic Products, Unmanned Systems and Training Solutions.  Kratos' work on multiple ballistic missile defense programs, which we support across the majority of the Company, was also solid in the third quarter.  In the quarter, Kratos' Unmanned Systems Division, in particular, generated significant organic growth and returned to profitability, as we commenced production on a number of new programs, and as we reduced certain investments we have been making.  We expect our unmanned systems business to grow rapidly over the next several years, based on existing programs, contracts, backlog, and new opportunities we are pursuing, with the business expected to double in revenues from 2016 to 2018."

Mr. DeMarco continued, "Similar to last year, we are looking for Kratos to finish 2017 very strongly, including generating the fiscal year's highest quarterly Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter, based on third quarter bookings, backlog, expected contract mix, and forecasted delivery and execution schedules. In particular, we are forecasting Kratos' Satellite Communications, Cyber and Training Solutions business, our Company's largest revenue, profit and cash flow generator, which reported a book to bill ratio of 1.3 to 1.0 in the third quarter, to have a particularly strong and profitable fourth quarter.  We also are currently forecasting all of Kratos to return to positive cash flow generation in 2018."

Mr. DeMarco concluded, "We continue to believe that Kratos' position as a leader in innovation and the rapid development and delivery of technology rich products and solutions is a clear differentiator with many DoD customers today.  We are demonstrating this leadership position in strategic focus areas, including satellite communications, microwave electronics, cyber security, missile defense, training systems and high performance, jet powered unmanned aerial drone systems.  We believe that we have the right products to address today's mission critical National Security requirements at an affordable cost."

Management will discuss the Company's third quarter 2017 financial results, fourth quarter guidance and fiscal year 2017 guidance in a conference call beginning at 2:00 p.m. Pacific (5:00 p.m. Eastern) today.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted income (loss) per share (computed using  income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, excluding amortization of intangible assets and capitalized contract and development costs, stock compensation expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, contract design retrofit costs, acquisition  and restructuring related items and other which includes but is not limited to unused office space expense, excess capacity, investments in unmanned combat systems initiatives, and foreign transaction gains and losses, less the estimated tax cash payments) and Adjusted EBITDA (which excludes, among other things, losses and gains from discontinued operations, restructuring and transaction related items, investments in unmanned combat systems initiatives, stock compensation expense, unused office space expense, and foreign transaction gains and losses, and the associated margin rates).   Kratos believes this information is useful to investors because it provides a basis for measuring the Company's available capital resources, the actual and forecasted operating performance of the Company's business and the Company's cash flow, excluding extraordinary items and non-cash items that would normally be included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  The Company's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures along with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in evaluating the Company's actual and forecasted operating performance, capital resources and cash flow.  Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and investors should carefully evaluate the Company's financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements.  In addition, non-GAAP financial measures as reported by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.  As appropriate, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and information reconciling these non-GAAP financial measures to the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP are included in this news release.

Adjusted EBITDA (1) $14.5  $13.5  $36.6  $31.6   
Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures           
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, amortization of capitalized contract and development costs, foreign transaction gain (loss),  acquisition and    
restructuring related items, contract design retrofit costs, investment in unmanned combat systems, litigation related    
charges, unused office space expense and costs related to pending customer change orders.      
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 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.  The adjustments to calculate this non-GAAP financial measure and the basis for such adjustments are outlined below.  
Please refer to the following table below that reconciles GAAP net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA.      
The adjustments to calculate this non-GAAP financial measure, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:     
Interest income and expense.  The Company receives interest income on investments and incurs interest expense on loans, capital leases and other  
financing arrangements, including the amortization of issue discounts and deferred financing costs.  These amounts may vary from period to period due to 
changes in cash and debt balances.           
Income taxes.  The Company's tax expense can fluctuate materially from period to period due to tax adjustments that may not be directly related to  
underlying operating performance or to the current period of operations and may not necessarily reflect the impact of utilization of our NOLs.  
Depreciation.  The Company incurs depreciation expense (recorded in cost of revenues and in operating expenses) related to capital assets purchased 
or constructed to support the ongoing operations of the business.  The assets are recorded at cost or fair value and are depreciated over the estimated 
useful lives of individual assets.          
Amortization of intangible assets.  The Company incurs amortization of intangible expense related to acquisitions it has made.  These intangible assets are 
valued at the time of acquisition and are amortized over the estimated useful lives.        
Amortization of capitalized contract and development costs.  The Company incurs amortization of previously capitalized software development and non- 
recurring engineering costs related to certain aerial targets in its Unmanned Systems business as these units are sold.    
Stock-based compensation expense.  The Company incurs expense related to stock-based compensation included in its GAAP presentation of selling,   
general and administrative expense.  Although stock-based compensation is an expense of the Company and viewed as a form of compensation, these 
expenses vary in amount from period to period, and are affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the control of management, 
such as the market price and volatility of the Company's shares, risk-free interest rates and the expected term and forfeiture rates of the awards.  
Management believes that exclusion of these expenses allows comparison of operating results to those of other companies that disclose non-GAAP  
financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation.          
Foreign transaction (gain) loss.  The Company incurs transaction gains and losses related to transactions with foreign customers in currencies other than 
the U.S. dollar.  In addition, certain intercompany transactions can give rise to realized and unrealized foreign currency gains and losses.  
Acquisition and restructuring related items.  The Company incurs transaction related costs, such as legal and accounting fees and other expenses, related to 
acquisitions and divestiture activities. Management believes these items are outside the normal operations of the Company's business and are not  
indicative of ongoing operating results.          
Excess capacity and restructuring costs.  The Company incurs excess capacity and excess overhead costs related to certain of its manufacturing businesses 
within its Unmanned Systems and Modular Systems businesses due primarily to underutilization of manufacturing facilities and support costs resulting from 
less than optimal volumes and efficiencies. The Company incurs restructuring costs for cost reduction actions which include employee termination costs, 
facility shut-down related costs and remaining lease commitment costs for excess or exited facilities.  Management believes that these costs are not 
indicative of ongoing operating results as they are either non-recurring and/or not expected when full capacity and volumes are achieved.  
Litigation related items.  The Company periodically incurs expenses related to pending claims and litigation and associated legal fees and potential  
case settlements and/or judgments.  Although we may incur such costs and other related charges and adjustments, we do not believe it is indicative  
of any particular outcome until the matter is fully resolved.  Management believes these items are outside the normal operations of the Company's  
business and are not indicative of ongoing operating results.          
Investment in unmanned combat systems.  The Company makes discretionary investments related to its tactical unmanned combat systems initiative  
with the intention of retaining the intellectual property and data package rights of the technology it is developing.  Management believes these rights 
will result in securing future sole source positions on new platforms which will provide an attractive rate of return.  Management believes that these 
costs are not indicative of ongoing operating results.          
Contract design retrofits.  The Company makes certain design retrofits primarily related to its development programs in its Unmanned Systems business  
which are necessary for the final design and configuration of these vehicles.  Management believes that these costs are not indicative of ongoing  
operating results.          
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in 
accordance with GAAP.  This non-GAAP financial measure may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other  
companies.  The Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the Adjusted EBITDA financial adjustments described above, and investors 
should not infer from the Company's presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure that these costs are unusual, infrequent, or non-recurring.  
Reconciliation of Net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA is as follows:

Unaudited Non-GAAP Measures  
Computation of Adjusted Earnings Per Share  
(in millions, except per share data)  
Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations and adjusted earnings per share (Adjusted EPS) are non-GAAP measure for reporting financial  
performance, exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP.  Management believes that exclusion 
of these items assists in providing a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying continuing operations results and trends and allows 
for comparability with our peer company index and industry.  The Company uses these measures along with the corresponding GAAP financial measures 
to manage the Company's business and to evaluate its performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace.  The Company defines adjusted  
income (loss) from continuing operations before amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, foreign transaction gain/loss, contract 
design retrofit costs and acquisition and restructuring related items and other.  The Company uses the estimated cash tax provision in computing  
adjusted earnings per share to reflect the benefit from the utilization of the Company's net operating losses. Adjusted EPS expresses adjusted income 
(loss) from continuing operations on a per share basis using weighted average diluted shares outstanding.      
The following table reconciles the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures.
