Vectrus Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Vectrus, Inc. (NYSE:VEC) announced third quarter 2018 financial results. For the third quarter, revenue was $308 million, GAAP operating income was $14.0 million or 4.5% GAAP operating margin, and GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.86.

"We reported solid third quarter financial results driven by the continued execution of our strategy and momentum in the market," said Chuck Prow, president and chief executive officer of Vectrus. "We are leveraging our industry-leading technology infusion, rapid deployment, tactical agility, and operational continuity capabilities in order to deliver value added solutions with our clients. I'm proud to announce that this focus led to the recent win of a $60 million task order to provide base operations support services for the U.S. Navy at Guantanamo Bay. The award was made subsequent to the third quarter and will be included in our fourth quarter backlog."

"Clients are welcoming our outcome-oriented solutions approach, and as demonstrated by our financial results, we are making substantial progress transforming Vectrus into a higher value platform," said Prow. "Additionally, with 65% of 2018 new business wins based on contract value coming from the Air Force and Navy, we are also making great progress in diversifying our portfolio and expanding market share with clients that have not historically been large contributors to revenue. We see additional opportunities to further expand our footprint with existing clients in the Department of Defense and intelligence community, as well as new clients in the federal civilian market."

Year-to-date September 28, 2018, net cash provided by operating activities was $8.7 million, a decrease of $13.7 million compared to 2017.  Days sales outstanding (DSO) was 66 days in the third quarter of 2018 compared to 54 days in the third quarter of 2017. "Year-to-date net cash provided by operating activities is lower compared to the prior year due to temporary timing differences related to the SENTEL integration," said Matt Klein, chief financial officer of Vectrus. "Net cash provided by operating activities is expected to be strong in the fourth quarter."

The Company ended the third quarter 2018 with a total debt balance of $76.0 million, which was down from $79.0 million at the end of the 2017.  As of September 28, 2018, the Company had total consolidated indebtedness to consolidated EBITDA (total leverage ratio) of 1.29x to 1.00x.

"With approximately $330 million in 2018 new business awards, which includes the recent Guantanamo Bay task order, we continue to capitalize on the growth opportunities in our markets," said Klein. "With our current financial profile, we are well positioned to continue executing on organic and inorganic activities aligned to our strategy that will result in enhanced shareholder value."

The Company ended the third quarter 2018 with total backlog of $3.0 billion and funded backlog of $773.4 million.

2018 Guidance

"We are updating our full-year 2018 guidance," said Klein. "Our 2018 guidance assumes capital expenditures of approximately $9 million, interest expense of $4.7 million, depreciation and amortization expense of $4.2 million, mandatory debt payments of $4.0 million, and weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 11.4 million at December 31, 2018."

Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The primary financial performance measures we use to manage our business and monitor results of operations are revenue trends and operating income trends.  In addition, we consider EBITDA and EBITDA % to be useful to management and investors in evaluating our operating performance for the periods presented, and to provide a tool for evaluating our ongoing operations. This information can assist investors in assessing our financial performance and measures our ability to generate capital for deployment among competing strategic alternatives and initiatives.

EBITDA and EBITDA %, however, are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) and should not be considered a substitute for operating income as determined in accordance with GAAP.  Reconciliations of these items are provided below.

"EBITDA" is defined as operating income, adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization.

"EBITDA %" is defined as EBITDA divided by revenue.
