Affirms Full Year 2018 Financial Guidance

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, today reported its second quarter 2018 financial results, which, along with comparable 2017 financial results, have been recast to reflect the Company's recently divested Public Safety & Security (PSS) business as a discontinued operation. In addition, the details of the Company's adoption of the new revenue recognition standard, ASC 606, which is reflected on a prospective basis in 2018, is disclosed in the Company's quarterly report filed on Form 10-Q. 

For the second quarter ended July 1, 2018, Kratos generated revenue of $151.2 million, an increase of 2.2 percent over the second quarter of 2017, and a sequential increase of 5.7 percent over the first quarter of 2018. Second quarter 2018 Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations were $12.1 million, an increase of 18.6 percent over $10.2 million in the second quarter of 2017. Second quarter 2018 gross margins increased to 26.0 percent from 25.4 percent in the second quarter of 2017, operating income increased 73.3 percent to $2.6 million in 2018 from $1.5 million in 2017 and Adjusted EBITDA margin rate increased to 8.0 percent in 2018 from 6.9 percent in 2017. For the second quarter of 2018, Adjusted EPS* was $0.02 and EPS from continuing operations was a loss of $0.04 per share. In the second quarter of 2018, net loss was $7.7 million, which included a loss from discontinued operations of $3.9 million, or a loss from discontinued operations of $0.03 per share, and net loss per share was $0.07.

For the second quarter of 2018, Kratos' Unmanned Systems Division (KUSD) generated year over year revenue growth of 60.4 percent, to $35.6 million, up from $22.2 million in the second quarter of 2017. KUSD's second quarter 2018 Adjusted EBITDA of $3.7 million, or 10.4 percent of revenue, increased from an Adjusted EBITDA of $0.4 million, or 1.8 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2017. KUSD's Operating performance increased from a loss of $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2017 to operating income of $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2018. In the second quarter of 2018, KUSD booked $54.3 million in sole source or single award contracts, all of which is expected to be converted to revenue over the life of the expected contracts, and reported a book-to-bill ratio of 1.5 to 1.0.

During the second quarter of 2018, Kratos' Government Solutions Division (KGS) generated Revenues of $115.6 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $8.4 million, and Operating Income of $5.0 million, which were down slightly from the prior year due primarily to a continued decline in Kratos' legacy government services business.

During the second quarter of 2018, Kratos entered into a pending legal settlement for $2.3 million related to a matter involving a former employee that was part of an acquisition of a legacy government services company in 2006. The pending settlement and related legal fees of approximately $0.5 million are included in operating expenses for the quarter ended July 1, 2018. Excluding the legal settlement matter, Kratos' Operating Income increased from $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2017 to $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2018.

In the second quarter of 2018, Kratos' backlog was $501.9 million, with $451.9 million funded, and the book-to-bill ratio was 0.7 to 1.0 for the second quarter and 0.9 to 1.0 for the last twelve months. Kratos' bid and proposal pipeline was approximately $6.5 billion at July 1, 2018. 

Eric DeMarco, Kratos' President and CEO, said, "Kratos has announced approximately $380 million in contract awards in the past 5 months, including $220 million in the second quarter and our bid pipeline increased approximately $500 million, up to $6.5 billion, reflecting the strength of our business and providing us with increased confidence in our full year 2018 forecast, which we affirmed today, and our longer term growth trajectory. Also in the second quarter, Kratos' gross, Adjusted EBITDA and operating margins all continued to increase as production programs ramp up and investments in unmanned systems wind down, and we continue to forecast that the Company will be free cash flow positive in the fourth quarter of this year."

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 expected 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 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 31, 2017, 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 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, acquisition and restructuring related items and other, and impairment of goodwill, which includes but is not limited to excess capacity, legal related items 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, stock compensation expense, impairment of goodwill, loss on extinguishment of debt, foreign transaction gains and losses, and the associated margin rates). Additional non-GAAP financial measures include 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 extraordinary 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 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, certain non-recurring items such as acquisition and restructuring related items and other, the loss on extinguishment of debt, and the non-cash impairment of goodwill, 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 income (loss) 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) plus (income) loss from discontinued  operations,        
net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation, amortization of intangible assets and capitalized         
contract and development costs, acquisition and restructuring related items 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 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 has incurred 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.        
                 
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 indicatie 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 (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,  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.
