Three Months Ended, June 30, 2018:

Revenue: The increase in revenues was driven by strong organic growth of 11% in our GS business segment, the consolidation of acquired entities in the Aspire Defence program and our acquisition of SGT. The increase was partially offset by completion or substantial completion of several projects within our HS business segment, and the non-recurrence of $35 million in revenues associated with the PEMEX settlement in second quarter of 2017.

Gross Profit: The increase in gross profits were driven by the consolidation of the Aspire Defence project entities, the inclusion of SGT, coupled with strong organic growth in our GS business segment.  Included in gross profit for the quarter was the favorable close out of an LNG project in Australia offset by the non-recurring gain associated with the PEMEX settlement in the second quarter of 2017.

Equity in earnings: The decrease in equity in earnings was driven by the consolidation of the Aspire Defence entities in our GS business segment, now reported in gross profit, and reduced activity on the Ichthys project in our HS segment as we near completion.

Operating cash flow: The cash provided by operations totaled $94 million in the three months ended June 30, 2018 compared to cash provided by operations of $325 million in the three months ended June 30, 2017.  Operating cash flows in the three months ended June 30, 2017 included collection of a $344 million payment (net of tax) associated with the PEMEX settlement.

Six Months Ended, June 30, 2018:

Revenue: The increase in revenues was driven by strong organic growth in our GS business segment, the consolidation of acquired entities in the Aspire Defence program and our acquisition of SGT. The increase was partially offset by completion or substantial completion of several projects within our HS business segment and the non-recurrence of $35 million in revenue from the PEMEX settlement in second quarter of 2017.

Gross Profit: The increase in gross profits were driven by the consolidation of the Aspire Defence project entities, inclusion of SGT, organic growth in our GS business segment, and increased profit in our Technology business segment.  These increases were partially offset by decreased profit in our HS business segment due to reduced activity and the non-recurring PEMEX settlement.

Equity in earnings: The decrease in equity in earnings was driven by the consolidation of the Aspire Defence project entities in our GS business segment, now reported in gross profit and decreased activity on a JV in Mexico. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in earnings provided by the Ichthys LNG project, partially resulting from increased cost estimates in the first quarter of 2017 that did not recur in 2018.

Gain on consolidation of Aspire entities: The gain was recognized upon consolidation of the Aspire Defence entities as a result of adjusting our investment to fair value as required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Operating cash flow: The cash used in operations totaled $36 million in the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to cash provided by operations of $210 million in the six months ended June 30, 2017.  Operating cash flows in the six months ended June 30, 2017 included collection of a $344 million payment (net of tax) associated with the PEMEX settlement.

KBR backlog increased from $13.2 billion as of March 31, 2018 to $13.5 billion as of June 30, 2018.  Backlog increases in Hydrocarbons Services of $544 million and $86 million in Technology were partially offset by decreases in Government Services of $291 million, which includes unfavorable foreign exchange rate differences primarily due to strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the British pound.

Guidance

We are increasing the company's full year 2018 fully diluted adjusted earnings per share guidance range to $1.40 to $1.50 per share from the previous range of $1.35 to $1.45.  Our guidance of earnings per share is on an adjusted EPS basis, which excludes legacy legal fees for U.S. Government contracts, acquisition & integration-related expenses associated with the Aspire and SGT acquisitions, new amortization associated with the Aspire acquisitions and the gain on the Aspire consolidation.  The estimated legacy legal fees do not assume any cost reimbursement from the U.S. Government that could occur in the future.  A reconciliation of GAAP EPS to adjusted EPS guidance is located at the end of this release.

Our estimated effective tax rate for 2018 is unchanged and estimated to range from 22% to 24%.  The operating cash flows are also unchanged and estimated to range from $125 million to $175 million for 2018.

(a)  

Backlog generally represents the dollar amount of revenues we expect to realize in the future as a result of performing work on contracts and our pro-rata share of work to be performed by unconsolidated joint ventures. We generally include total expected revenues in backlog when a contract is awarded under a legally binding agreement. In many instances, arrangements included in backlog are complex, nonrepetitive and may fluctuate due to the release of contracted work in phases by the customer. Additionally, nearly all contracts allow customers to terminate the agreement at any time for convenience. Where contract duration is indefinite and clients can terminate for convenience without having to compensate us for periods beyond the date of termination, projects included in backlog are limited to the estimated amount of expected revenues within the following twelve months. Certain contracts provide maximum dollar limits, with actual authorization to perform work under the contract agreed upon on a periodic basis with the customer. In these arrangements, only the amounts authorized are included in backlog. For projects where we act solely in a project management capacity, we only include the value of our services on each project in backlog.




We define backlog, as it relates to U.S. government contracts, as our estimate of the remaining future revenue from existing signed contracts over the remaining base contract performance period (including customer approved option periods) for which work scope and price have been agreed with the customer.  We define funded backlog as the portion of backlog for which funding currently is appropriated, less the amount of revenue we have previously recognized.  We define unfunded backlog as the total backlog less the funded backlog.  Our GS backlog does not include any estimate of future potential delivery orders that might be awarded under our government-wide acquisition contracts, agency-specific indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts, or other multiple-award contract vehicles nor does it include option periods that have not been exercised by the customer.




Within our GS business segment, we calculate estimated backlog for long-term contracts associated with the U.K. government's privately financed initiatives or projects ("PFIs") based on the aggregate amount that our client would contractually be obligated to pay us over the life of the project. We update our estimates of the future work to be executed under these contracts on a quarterly basis and adjust backlog if necessary.




We have included in the table above our proportionate share of unconsolidated joint ventures' estimated revenues. Since these projects are accounted for under the equity method, only our share of future earnings from these projects will be recorded in our results of operations. Our proportionate share of backlog for projects related to unconsolidated joint ventures totaled $2.6 billion at June 30, 2018 and $7.2 billion at December 31, 2017. Our backlog included in the table above for projects related to consolidated joint ventures with noncontrolling interest includes 100% of the backlog associated with those joint ventures and totaled $6.4 billion at June 30, 2018 and $125 million at December 31, 2017.




We estimate that as of June 30, 2018, 31% of our backlog will be executed within one year. Of this amount, 82% will be recognized in revenues on our condensed consolidated statement of operations and 18% will be recorded by our unconsolidated joint ventures. As of June 30, 2018, $87 million of our backlog relates to active contracts that are in a loss position.




As of June 30, 2018, 7% of our backlog was attributable to fixed-price contracts, 62% was attributable to PFIs and 31% of our backlog was attributable to cost-reimbursable contracts. For contracts that contain both fixed-price and cost-reimbursable components, we classify the individual components as either fixed-price or cost-reimbursable according to the composition of the contract; however, for smaller contracts, we characterize the entire contract based on the predominant component.  As of June 30, 2018, $9.9 billion of our GS backlog was currently funded by our customers. As of June 30, 2018, we had approximately $4.3 billion of priced option periods for U.S. government contracts that are not included in the backlog amounts presented above.

 


Non-GAAP Financial Information

The following information provides reconciliations of certain non-GAAP financial measures presented in the press release to which this reconciliation is attached to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The company has provided the non-GAAP financial information presented in the press release, which is not calculated or presented in accordance with GAAP, as information supplemental and in addition to the financial measures presented in the press release that are calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Such non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the GAAP financial measures presented in the press release. The non-GAAP financial measures in the press release may differ from similar measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA

We evaluate performance based on Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Net income (loss) attributable to KBR, plus interest expense, net; provision (benefit) for income taxes; other non-operating expense (income); and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the SEC's rules because Adjusted EBITDA for each such period excludes certain amounts not excluded in the calculation of net income attributable to KBR in accordance with GAAP for such periods. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is a meaningful measure to share with investors because each measure, which adjusts net income attributable to KBR for such periods for certain items recorded in such periods, is the measure that best allows comparison of the performance for the comparable period. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA affords investors a view of what management considers KBR's core performance for each of the three and six months and fiscal years ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 and also affords investors the ability to make a more informed assessment of such core performance for the comparable periods.

Adjusted EPS

Adjusted diluted earnings per share from net income attributable to KBR (Adjusted EPS) for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the SEC's rules because the Adjusted EPS for each such period excludes certain amounts not excluded in the diluted earnings per share from net income attributable to KBR calculated in accordance with GAAP (EPS) for such periods. Management believes that the Adjusted EPS for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is a meaningful measure to share with investors because each measure, which adjusts EPS for such periods for certain items recorded in such periods, is the measure that best allows comparison of the performance for the comparable period. In addition, Adjusted EPS affords investors a view of what management considers KBR's core earnings performance for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 and also affords investors the ability to make a more informed assessment of such core earnings performance for the comparable periods.

We have calculated Adjusted EPS for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 by adjusting EPS for the items included in the table below. Adjusted EPS for each of the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is a non-GAAP financial measure. The most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP is Diluted EPS for the same periods.
