HANOVER, Md., July 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW) announces Q2 2012 revenue of $56.2 million, an increase of 25% versus Q2 2011. GAAP earnings per share (EPS) were $0.01 in Q2 2012 on a fully diluted basis, versus $0.00 in Q2 2011. Amortization associated with acquisition-related intangibles reduced Q2 2012 EPS by approximately $0.11 per share on an after tax basis versus a reduction of $0.05 in Q2 2011. Adjusted EBITDA (as described below) for Q2 2012 was $7.6 million, compared to $3.9 million in Q2 2011. As a percentage of revenue, Adjusted EBITDA margin rose to 13.5% in Q2 2012, an increase from 8.6% in Q2 2011 and 12.9% in Q1 2012. Net cash provided from operations in Q2 2012 was a strong $10 million despite R&D spending of $1.6 million in the quarter. In Q2 2012, KEYW was awarded work totaling $42 million in contract value.
"For KEYW, Q2 2012 was about continuing to deliver results," commented Leonard Moodispaw, CEO and President of KEYW. "We delivered on growth, revenue and EBITDA while continuing to invest in key R&D initiatives, including Project G. While many in our industry are fretting over budgets and contracts, KEYW continues to see unparalleled demand for the talent and solutions for which we are known throughout the Intelligence Community. During this quarter we celebrated the opening of our new Corporate headquarters, significantly expanding our facilities as we continue to scale KEYW to meet our customers' needs. At mid-year, 2012 is on target to be a strong year for KEYW."
Revenue for Q2 2012 increased 25% versus Q2 2011 from $44.9 million to $56.2 million. The main driver for the increase was the acquisition of Flight Landata in August 2011 offset in part by decreases in our Air Force services work, the reassignment of a contract to another company, and increased use of billable staff for internal research and development programs. Consolidated gross margin increased from 29% in Q2 2011 to 34% in Q2 2012 due to a revenue mix shift toward our Integrated Solutions segment. Research and development expenses were $1.6 million in Q2 2012, an increase from $660,000 in Q2 2011 and $837,000 in Q1 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.
