KEYW Reports Q3 2013 Financial Results

HANOVER, Md., Oct. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW) announces Q3 2013 revenue of $73.8 million, an increase of 29% versus Q3 2012. GAAP earnings per share (EPS) were ($0.15) in Q3 2013 on a fully diluted basis, versus GAAP EPS of $0.01 in Q3 2012. Recently, the Company settled litigation initiated in Q2 2013 by Exelis Inc., which resulted in a one-time charge of $0.13 per share (after tax) to earnings per share. Amortization associated with acquisition related intangibles further reduced EPS by $0.09 per share on an after tax basis. Adjusted EBITDA for Q3 2013 was $6.8 million, compared to $7.8 million in Q3 2012. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 9.2% in Q3 2013, a decrease from 13.5% in Q3 2012. Net cash provided from operations in Q3 2013 was a solid $10 million. In Q3 2013, KEYW was awarded new funding actions of $81 million and ended the quarter with 1,126 employees.

"Clearly, the impact of sequestration continued to take its toll in the third quarter. However, we also experienced some notable high points, including the launch of our commercial cyber security products subsidiary, Hexis Cyber Solutions, and the announcement of two large prime contract wins for advanced cyber training and software development. In October, we also announced commercial availability of HawkEye G, our flagship commercial cyber defense product," commented Len Moodispaw, CEO and President of KEYW. "While the impacts of the U.S. government shutdown and budget uncertainty will be felt in our fourth quarter, we continue to be encouraged by the growing pipeline of opportunities in both our government and commercial businesses and in particular, for HawkEye G. We look forward to seeing strong sales contributions in 2014 from this exciting new product."

Revenue for Q3 2013 increased 29% versus Q3 2012 from $57.4 million to $73.8 million. The main drivers of this increase were the contributions of Poole & Associates and Sensage, Inc., both acquired in Q4 2012, partially offset by the negative impact of sequestration. Consolidated gross margin decreased from 34% in Q3 2012 to 33% in Q3 2013 primarily due to increased revenue contributions from lower margin subcontract labor in the Services segment. Research and development expenses rose from $1.7 million in Q3 2012 to $2.3 million in Q3 2013. On a pro forma basis, increased infrastructure spending in the commercial cyber business (including R&D) accounted for $3.1 million in growth in operating expenses versus Q3 2012.

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.

Pro Forma Revenue Reconciliation

The tables below summarize the unaudited pro forma statement of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, assuming the Poole and Sensage acquisitions had been completed on January 1, 2012. Pro forma income statements are not presented for 2013 as there have been no material acquisitions during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. These pro forma statements do not include any adjustments that may have resulted from synergies between the acquisitions, eliminations of intercompany transactions or from amortization of intangibles other than during the period the acquired entities were part of the Company. The 2012 activity for Poole and Sensage represents the financial activity in 2012 prior to acquisition. Activity for the Rsignia, Dilijent and IDEAL acquisitions are not included for any period presented due to their immateriality individually and in aggregate.
