Affirms Full Year 2019 Financial Guidance

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, today reported its third quarter 2019 financial results. For the third quarter 2019, Kratos reported Revenues of $184.1 million, a 15.5% increase over the third quarter of 2018, and third quarter 2019 Adjusted EBITDA of $20.4 million, or 11.1%, a 22.2% increase over the third quarter of 2018. Excluding the impact of the recent FTT acquisition, revenues grew organically 5.3% from the third quarter of 2018 to the third quarter of 2019. Third quarter 2019 Operating Income of $11.5 million increased 13.9% over the third quarter of 2018. Third quarter 2019 Cash Flow from Operations was $10.2 million, and third quarter 2019 Free Cash Flow generated from Operations was $2.1 million, after capital expenditures of $8.1 million, which included the continued build out of the Company’s new drone manufacturing facility in Oklahoma, where the XQ-58 Valkyrie will be produced. Third quarter 2019 Adjusted EPS* was $0.09, a 12.5% increase over the third quarter of 2018. Kratos reported third quarter 2019 Net Income of $2.5 million, a 47.1% increase over third quarter 2018 Net Income of $1.7 million. 

For the third quarter of 2019, Kratos’ Unmanned Systems Division (KUSD) reported Revenues of $45.7 million, an increase of $12.4 million, or 37.2%, over 2018 third quarter Revenues of $33.3 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $4.9 million, an increase of 88.5% over 2018 third quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $2.6 million. Third quarter KUSD Operating Income of $3.3 million increased 230.0% over 2018 Operating Income of $1.0 million. KUSD’s third quarter 2019 book-to-bill ratio was 1.2 to 1.0 and 1.3 to 1.0 for the last twelve months ended September 29, 2019. Total backlog for KUSD at the end of the 2019 third quarter was $160.9 million. 

Kratos’ Government Solutions Division (KGS) reported third quarter 2019 Revenues of $138.4 million, an increase of 9.8% over 2018 third quarter Revenues of $126.1 million. Excluding the impact of the FTT acquisition, which contributed $16.3 million to third quarter 2019 revenues, KGS Revenues decreased 3.2%, or $4.0 million, from the third quarter of 2018, resulting from the continued reduction in the Company’s deemphasized legacy government services revenues, which declined $5.1 million from the third quarter of 2018. Third quarter 2019 KGS Adjusted EBITDA of $15.5 million increased 9.9% over third quarter 2018 Adjusted EBITDA of $14.1 million, and third quarter 2019 KGS Operating Income of $11.1 million increased from third quarter 2018 Operating Income of $11.0 million. 

For the third quarter of 2019, Kratos reported bookings of $172.5 million and a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9 to 1.0, with bookings of $713.1 million in the last twelve months and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.0 to 1.0. Backlog at September 29, 2019 was $608.7 million. All Kratos business units reported a book-to-bill ratio for the last twelve months between 1.0 to 1.4, with the exception of the Company’s Training Solutions business. In the third quarter, Kratos’ bid and proposal pipeline increased by $100 million, up to approximately $7.7 billion, at September 29, 2019.  

For the nine months ended September 29, 2019, cash generated from operations was $30.2 million, and Free Cash Flow generated from operations was $12.3 million, after capital expenditures of $17.9 million. Net leverage ratio as of September 29, 2019 was 1.5 to 1, computed as net debt of $113.8 million over trailing twelve months Adjusted EBITDA of $75.1 million.

Eric DeMarco, Kratos’ President and CEO, said, “Since our last report to you, Kratos’ tactical drone business continued to make important progress, including our XQ-58A Valkyrie completing Flight 3, successfully executing 100 Percent of the test points and Kratos’ Unmanned Systems Division receiving new contract awards for tactical drone capability expansion, mission system integration and concepts of operations. Our confidence continues to increase that Kratos’ market leading position in affordable, high performance drones, of which we believe Kratos has the only existing systems in the class today, including Valkyrie, Mako and Gremlins, will become a long-term growth driver and value generator for the Company.” 

Mr. DeMarco concluded, “Over the past few years, Kratos has successfully received a number of development and production programs, certain of which are forecasted for significant future growth as production both begins and increases, including in our unmanned systems business, which reported 37% organic revenue growth and a 1.3 to 1.0 book to bill ratio over the past 12 months. Though short-term delays may occur as a result of Continuing Resolutions or delays in DoD budget approvals, we are confident in the long-term growth trajectory and direction of our business based on our existing program portfolio and opportunity pipeline which increased to $7.7 billion.”
  
Financial Guidance

Kratos is affirming its full year 2019 financial guidance for Revenues of $720 to $740 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $71 to $77 million and its full year 2019 Free Cash Flow guidance of $10 to $20 million, including capital expenditures and the expected final cash receipt of the retained working capital from the Company’s divested PSS business of approximately $4 to $6 million. Capital expenditures are expected to continue to be elevated in 2019, reflecting expected outlays associated with manufacturing equipment for the Company’s new drone facility in Oklahoma, equipment for a new secured facility of approximately $6 to $8 million and approximately $6 to $8 million related to the planned manufacture of Company-owned aerial target drones in preparation of fulfilling expected customer requirements.

Consistent with prior years practice, Kratos plans to provide next year, or fiscal 2020 financial guidance, with its full fiscal year 2019 financial report, currently planned for February 2020. This schedule provides the Company additional insight into both the timing and funding content of Department of Defense (DoD) Budgets and the potential impact of Continuing Resolution Authorizations, under which typically no new contract awards, or increases in existing production programs or contracts can be made. 

Management will discuss the Company’s third quarter 2019 financial results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year 2019 guidance on 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 8466148.

Such statements are only predictions, and the Company’s actual results may differ materially from the results expressed or implied by these statements. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. All such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise these statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Factors that may cause the Company’s results to differ include, but are not limited to: risks to our business and financial results related to the reductions and other spending constraints imposed on the U.S. Government and our other customers, including as a result of sequestration and extended continuing resolutions, the Federal budget deficit and Federal government shut-downs; risks of adverse regulatory action or litigation; risks associated with debt leverage and cost savings and cash flow improvements expected as a result of the refinancing of our Senior Notes; risks that our cost-cutting initiatives will not provide the anticipated benefits; risks that changes, cutbacks or delays in spending by the U.S. DoD may occur, which could cause delays or cancellations of key government contracts; risks of delays to or the cancellation of our projects as a result of protest actions submitted by our competitors; risks that changes may occur in Federal government (or other applicable) procurement laws, regulations, policies and budgets; risks of the availability of government funding for the Company's products and services due to performance, cost growth, or other factors, changes in government and customer priorities and requirements (including cost-cutting initiatives, the potential deferral of awards, terminations or reduction of expenditures to respond to the priorities of Congress and the Administration, or budgetary cuts resulting from Congressional committee recommendations or automatic sequestration under the Budget Control Act of 2011, as amended); risks that the UAS and UGS markets do not experience significant growth; risks that we cannot expand our customer base or that our products do not achieve broad acceptance which could impact our ability to achieve our anticipated level of growth; risks of increases in the Federal government initiatives related to in-sourcing; risks related to security breaches, including cyber security attacks and threats or other significant disruptions of our information systems, facilities and infrastructures; risks related to our compliance with applicable contracting and procurement laws, regulations and standards; risks relating to contract performance; risks related to failure of our products or services; risks associated with our subcontractors’ or suppliers’ failure to perform their contractual obligations, including the appearance of counterfeit or corrupt parts in our products; changes in the competitive environment (including as a result of bid protests); failure to successfully integrate acquired operations and competition in the marketplace, which could reduce revenues and profit margins; risks that potential future goodwill impairments will adversely affect our operating results; risks that anticipated tax benefits will not be realized in accordance with our expectations; risks that a change in ownership of our stock could cause further limitation to the future utilization of our net operating losses; risks that the current economic environment will adversely impact our business; and risks related to natural disasters or severe weather. These and other risk factors are more fully discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 30, 2018, and in our other filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This news release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted earnings per share (computed using income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, excluding amortization of intangible assets, amortization of capitalized contract and development costs, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition and restructuring related items and other, which includes but is not limited to restructuring costs, acquisition and transaction related items, legal related items and foreign transaction gains and losses, less the estimated tax cash payments) and Adjusted EBITDA (which includes net income attributable to noncontrolling interest and excludes, among other things, losses and gains from discontinued operations, restructuring and transaction related items, stock compensation expense, foreign transaction gains and losses, and the associated margin rates). Additional non-GAAP financial measures include Free Cash Flow from Operations and Adjusted EBITDA related to our KUSD and KGS businesses. 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 non-recurring items and non-cash items that would normally be included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. 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 earnings per share (Adjusted EPS) excludes income (loss) from discontinued operations, non-cash intangible amortization expense, as the Company has historically been acquisitive, non-cash amortization of capitalized contract and development costs, non-cash stock-based compensation costs, foreign transaction gains and losses, 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 carry forwards of over $300 million. Kratos believes that reporting adjusted earnings per share is a meaningful metric to present the Company’s financial results.

Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures                
                 
Note: (1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure defined as GAAP net income (loss) attributable to Kratos adjusted for net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, income (loss) from discontinued operations, net interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense of intangible assets, amortization of capitalized contract and development costs, stock-based compensation, acquisition and restructuring related items and other, and foreign transaction gain (loss). 

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 interest expense, net. 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, leased 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 targets in its Unmanned Systems and ballistic missile target businesses 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 transaction 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. 
     
Restructuring costs. 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. 
                 
Legal related items. The Company incurs costs related to pending legal settlements and other legal related matters. Management believes these items are outside the normal operations of the Company's business and 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.

Unaudited Non-GAAP Measures
Computation of Adjusted Earnings Per Share
(in millions, except per share data)
                 
                 
Adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted common share (Adjusted EPS) are non-GAAP measures for reporting financial performance and 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 from continuing operations before amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, foreign transaction gain/loss, 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 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.
