MCLEAN, Va., May 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — V2X, Inc. (NYSE:VVX) announced first quarter 2024 financial results.

“V2X reported a solid start to 2024 with revenue up 7% year-over-year,” said Chuck Prow, President and Chief Executive Officer of V2X. “Our leading growth indicators remain strong with a robust backlog of $12.6 billion and a pipeline of nearer-term new business opportunities of $25 billion. V2X continues to advance our transformation to deliver enhanced capabilities in an expanding market. Given our first quarter results and trends we are seeing in our business, we are reaffirming our 2024 guidance.”

“We continue to witness growth in the Pacific or INDOPACOM, with our presence in the region proving to be a key channel to support increasing mission requirements,” said Mr. Prow. “Revenue in the region was up 7% year-over-year. We continue to expand our scope of services in the region, which includes a new award to deploy an assured and protected private 5G communications solution and enable smart logistics in the Philippines. Additionally, our position in the Middle East or CENTCOM continues to expand with revenue up 22% year-over-year. As the largest services provider to the Department of Defense in the Middle East, V2X stands ready to support our clients mission requirements.”

Mr. Prow continued, “V2X remains focused on differentiated operational technologies that fuse the digital and physical aspects of our clients’ missions. This differentiation is driving growth and was recently demonstrated through contract awards valued at $75 million to provide technology solutions for threat detection and response to Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) hazards. This work expanded from a prototype effort to a new sole source award for the production, upgrade, and fielding of cutting-edge systems at overseas operational locations. Under the contract, V2X is the lead systems integrator for CBRN Support to Command and Control (CSC2) program. CSC2 is the program of record for the integration of CBRN, which will link sensors together to provide integrated situational awareness about potential hazards to inform end user decision making.”

Mr. Prow concluded, “I’m pleased to announce that V2X was selected as a prime contractor for the U.S. Navy’s Global Contingency Services Multiple Award Contract III (GCSMAC III). The contract is valued at up to $2 billion, was awarded by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pacific in Hawaii, and enables V2X to provide critical support services for a wide range of scenarios, including natural disasters, humanitarian efforts, and military actions. The total contract value for GCSMAC III was increased significantly from the prior iteration, which reached its ceiling value of $900 million. Importantly, V2X was the leading provider of services under the prior iteration of the contract, winning $300 million in task orders.”

First Quarter 2024 Results

“V2X reported revenue of $1.0 billion in the quarter, which represents 7.1% year-over-year growth,” said Shawn Mural, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “Revenue growth in the quarter was achieved through continued expansion of existing business in the Pacific and Middle East regions, as well as new programs. Growth in the Pacific was driven by continued expansion of scope and services, particularly at Kwajalein Atoll. Growth in the Middle East was driven primarily by expansion in Qatar and the ramp up of our longer-term Saudi Aviation Support & Training program.”

“For the quarter, the Company reported operating income of $30.3 million and adjusted operating income1 of $62.9 million. Adjusted EBITDA1 was $69.1 million with a margin of 6.8%. First quarter GAAP diluted EPS was $0.04, due primarily to merger and integration related costs, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and interest expense. Adjusted diluted EPS1 for the quarter was $0.90.”

“An important attribute of our business is the ability to generate strong cash flow with low capital expenditure requirements. We expect to deliver full-year adjusted net cash provided by operating activities1 of $145 million to $165 million, representing 120% adjusted net income conversion1 at the mid-point. During the quarter, net cash used by operating activities was $57.2 million, in line with our historical pattern and reflective of a receivable delay that collected shortly after the quarter closed. Adjusted net cash used by operating activities1 was $83.5 million, adding back approximately $5.8 million of M&A and integration costs and removing the contribution of the master accounts receivable purchase or MARPA facility of $32.1 million.”

“At the end of the quarter, net debt for V2X was $1,173 million.  Net leverage ratio1was 3.5x, down from 3.8x at the end of the first quarter 2023. We expect to achieve a net leverage ratio of 3.0x, or below, by the end of 2024.”   

“Total backlog as of March 29, 2024, was $12.6 billion. Funded backlog was $2.7 billion. Bookings in the quarter were $0.8 billion, resulting in a trailing twelve-month book-to-bill of 1.2x.”

Reaffirming 2024 Guidance

Mr. Mural concluded, “We are pleased with the performance across our business and start to the year. Our teams continue to execute, driving expansion on existing operations and phasing in of new programs.  As such, the Company is reaffirming its guidance for 2024.”

Guidance for 2024 remains as follows:

Adjusted EBITDA1$300$315$308
Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share1$3.85$4.20$4.03
