Share:

HANOVER, Md., Oct. 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: KEYW) today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2012. Third quarter 2012 revenue was $57.4 million with GAAP earnings per share (EPS) of $0.01. Adjusted EBITDA (as described below) for Q3 2012 was $7.8 million or 13.5% of Q3 2012 revenue. KEYW posted another strong quarter of cash generation with net cash provided by operations of $11.3 million while R&D remains at elevated levels. In Q3 2012, KEYW received new funding totaling almost $49 million in value. Year-to-date 2012 funding totals $174 million.

"The third quarter of 2012 was a notable quarter for KEYW. Not only did we see solid business execution and financial results, but we also announced and, subsequent to quarter end, closed two major acquisitions: Poole & Associates and SenSage. KEYW also completed a successful $100 million secondary offering of our common stock," commented Leonard Moodispaw, CEO and President of KEYW. "We expect the acquisitions of Poole, which adds several key prime contract vehicles, and SenSage, a major technology contributor to our 'horizontal path' efforts, to play key roles in the next chapter of KEYW's story. We look forward to a strong ending to 2012, and more importantly, we look forward to a transformational 2013."

Revenue for Q3 2012 increased 6% versus Q3 2011 from $54.0 million to $57.4 million. The main driver for the increase was the acquisition of Flight Landata in August 2011 offset in part by decreases in our Air Force services work, the reassignment of a contract to another company, and increased use of billable staff for internal research and development programs. Revenue in Q3 2011 also included a large product delivery order. Consolidated gross margin increased from 28% in Q3 2011 to 34% in Q3 2012 due to a revenue mix shift toward our Integrated Solutions segment. Research and development expenses were $1.7 million in Q3 2012, an increase from $904,000 in Q3 2011. 

GAAP EPS was $0.01 in Q3 2012 on a fully diluted basis versus $0.00 in Q3 2011. Amortization associated with acquisition-related intangibles reduced Q3 2012 EPS by approximately $0.10 per share on an after tax basis versus a reduction of $0.08 per share in Q3 2011. Adjusted EBITDA (as described below) for Q3 2012 was $7.8 million, compared to $5.4 million in Q3 2011. Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of revenue rose to 13.5% in Q3 2012 versus 10.1% in Q3 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by KEYW, is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated as GAAP net income plus other non-recurring expense, interest expense, income taxes, stock compensation, depreciation, and amortization. We have provided Adjusted EBITDA because we use the measurement internally to evaluate performance and we believe it is a commonly used measure of financial performance in comparable companies. It is provided to help investors evaluate companies on a consistent basis, as well as to enhance an understanding of our operating results. In addition, our board of directors and management use Adjusted EBITDA:

  • As a measure of operating performance;
  • To determine a significant portion of management's incentive compensation;
  • For planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget; and
  • To evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under U.S. GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or the cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Please refer to the table below that reconciles GAAP net income to Adjusted EBITDA.
