SAN DIEGO, May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, today reported its first quarter 2019 financial results. For the first quarter 2019, Kratos reported Revenues of $160.4 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $17.5 million, or 10.9 percent, a 27.7 percent increase over the first quarter of 2018, Operating Income of $8.2 million, a 17.1 percent increase over the first quarter of 2018, Cash Flow from Operations of $16.0 million, and a Free Cash Flow from Operations of $12.0 million after capital expenditures of $4.0 million. For the first quarter 2019, the Company reported Adjusted EPS* of $0.08, a 60.0 percent increase over the first quarter of 2018, Net income of $3.1 million and GAAP EPS of $0.03, a 250.0 percent increase over a first quarter 2018 GAAP EPS loss of $0.02. Included in the first quarter 2019 Net income are acquisition costs of $1.2 million related to the recently closed FTT acquisition.
First quarter 2019 revenues increased $17.4 million over first quarter of 2018 revenues of $143.0 million, or 12.2 percent. Included in first quarter 2019 revenues was approximately $4.2 million generated from recently acquired FTT. Excluding the impact of FTT, Kratos revenues increased organically 9.2 percent year-over-year.
For the first quarter of 2019, Kratos’ Government Solutions Division (KGS) generated Revenues of $125.5 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $15.5 million and Operating Income of $11.4 million, compared to revenues of $115.2 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $12.0 million and Operating Income of $7.9 million for the first quarter of 2018. For the first quarter of 2019, Kratos’ Unmanned Systems Division (KUSD) generated Revenues of $34.9 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $2.0 million and Operating Income of $0.6 million, compared to revenues of $27.8 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $1.7 million and Operating Income of $0.8 million in the first quarter of 2018.
For the first quarter of 2019, Kratos reported bookings of $139.2 million and a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9 to 1.0, with backlog at March 31, 2019 of $620.2 million, and a last twelve months ending March 31, 2019 book-to-bill ratio of 1.1 to 1. In the first quarter, Kratos’ bid and proposal pipeline increased by $400 million, up to approximately $7.2 billion, at March 31, 2019.
Eric DeMarco, Kratos’ President and CEO, said, “Every Kratos business unit exceeded its financial forecast in the first quarter, with the Company reporting increased revenues, margins, profitability and cash flow. Kratos’ Unmanned Systems business had a very successful first quarter, including the initial flight of the XQ-58A Valkyrie and a 1.7 to 1.0 book to bill ratio. Since the first Valkyrie flight, potential customer interest in Kratos’ affordable, high performance unmanned aerial drone systems has increased significantly, and we are more confident than ever that we will successfully achieve our strategic objective of being the leader in this expected to be large and fast growing tactical UAS area class. Additionally, Kratos’ target drone business continues to ramp, driven by the ongoing recapitalization of strategic weapon systems by the U.S. and its allies, providing good visibility to expected future organic revenue, profit and cash flow growth.”
Mr. DeMarco continued, “Kratos’ space and satellite command, control, communications and space situational awareness business, our Company’s largest, also had a strong first quarter, including a favorable overall mix, and the 2020 DoD budget space funding request increase of approximately 20 percent provides confidence in our long term organic growth forecast. Additionally, Kratos’ C5ISR and Microwave Electronics product business, which supports radar, missile, electronic warfare and missile defense systems, including Patriot, THAAD and Iron Dome started the year well, as did our training systems and solutions business which supports operational readiness.”
Mr. DeMarco concluded, “We are confident that Kratos’ strategy of building an intellectual property focused technology Company that rapidly develops, demonstrates and fields affordable products and systems is a true differentiating model. Kratos is aligned with the U.S. National Defense Strategy and DoD funding priority areas. We believe that our recent awards, new and increasing production programs, under contract tactical unmanned aerial system development programs and increased bid and proposal pipeline are representative of the strength of our business plan, providing a solid foundation for the strong organic growth trajectory we are forecasting.”
Kratos is providing second quarter 2019 financial guidance of Revenues of $175 to $185 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $16 to $18 million, and reaffirming full year 2019 financial guidance of Revenues of $720 to $760 million, reflecting organic growth of approximately 12.5 percent, and Adjusted EBITDA of $71 to $77 million.
The Company is reaffirming full year 2019 cash flow from operations guidance of $40 to $50 million, capital expenditures of $28 to $30 million, and free cash flow guidance of $10 to $20 million, plus the expected final cash receipt of the retained working capital of 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 and equipment for a new secured facility of approximately $6 to $8 million and approximately $4 to $6 million related to the planned manufacture of company owned aerial target drones in preparation of fulfilling expected customer requirements.
Management will discuss the Company’s first quarter 2019 financial results, as well as its second quarter and full year 2019 guidance on a conference call beginning at 2:00 p.m. Pacific (5:00 p.m. Eastern) today.

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, acquisition and restructuring related items and other, which includes but is not limited to 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 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 expense, 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, 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.

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, 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 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. 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 (loss) from continuing operations and adjusted earnings per 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 (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.
