KEYW Reports Q2 2014 Financial Results

July 31, 2014

HANOVER, Md., July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW) announces final Q2 2014 revenue of $74.2 million, a decrease of 5% versus Q2 2013. GAAP loss per share was $0.05 in Q2 2014 on a fully diluted basis, versus GAAP loss per share on a fully-diluted basis of $0.06 in Q2 2013. Amortization associated with acquisition-related intangibles reduced Q2 2014 EPS by approximately $0.05 per share on an after-tax basis. Adjusted EBITDA (as described below) for Q2 2014 was $5.1 million, compared to $6.5 million in Q2 2013. As a percentage of revenue, Adjusted EBITDA margin was 6.9% in Q2 2014, a decrease from 8.2% in Q2 2013. In Q2 2014, KEYW was awarded new funding actions of $65 million and ended the quarter with 1,071 employees.

"As we discussed on our first quarter conference call, I am very pleased to see a strong sequential rebound in KEYW's Government Solutions business," commented Len Moodispaw, Chairman and CEO of KEYW. "We also continued to make progress in our HawkEye G business development metrics with now 13 installed systems and a HawkEye G pilot pipeline of 35 organizations spanning the government, healthcare, financial services, energy, and technology industries."

In KEYW's Government Solutions segment, revenue in Q2 2014 was $72.1 million, a decrease of 4.9% versus last year with the largest drivers of the decrease attributed to sequestration-related cuts. Second quarter 2014 gross margin of 31% was essentially flat as compared with Q2 2013. Cost reductions in the Government Solutions segment increased the adjusted EBITDA margin for the Government Solutions segment from 11% in Q2 2013 to 17% in Q2 2014.

Revenue in KEYW's Commercial Cyber Solutions segment was $2.2 million in Q2 2014, down from $2.4 million in Q2 2013. Bookings in Q2 2014 were $2.2 million. Operating expense in Q2 2014 increased to $9.3 million from $3.8 million in Q2 2013 due to additional investment in the infrastructure of the segment. These investments include substantial increases to the sales and customer support teams and growth in the engineering department.

Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or US GAAP. The adjusted EBITDA reconciliation tables below provide a reconciliation of this non-US GAAP financial measure to net income (loss), the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with US GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with US GAAP. Our adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures in the same manner as we do. We prepare adjusted EBITDA to eliminate the impact of items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance. We encourage you to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate. 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 US 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.
