by Douglas Messier
Managing Editor

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Redwire reported a first quarter net loss of $17.3 million on revenues of $32.9 million. The adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) loss was $4.7 million for the quarter.

“Delays in contract awards, macroeconomic challenges, including inflation and supply chain delays in contractor start dates had a negative impact on performance,” the company said in a statement.

The company said it has a backlog of business totaling $273.9 million. Highlights for the quarter included:

  • delivered fourth Roll-Out Solar Array (“ROSA”) wing for the International Space Station (“ISS”) ahead of baseline schedule;
  • contracted to deliver multiple high-gain antenna systems for a national security space satellite constellation;
  • delivered the camera controller, wireless antennas, and cable harnesses for the Artemis III Orion Camera System, an array of inspection and navigation cameras developed for NASA’s Orion Spacecraft.
  • awarded a position on the $950 million indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity (“IDIQ”) contract to support U.S. Air Force Advanced Battle Management System; and
  • passed the Critical Design Review (“CDR”) for the On-Orbit Servicing, Assembly and Manufacturing 2 (OSAM-2) mission.

“On March 25, 2022, the Adams Street Partners Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility was upsized from $5.0 million to $25.0 million and on April 14, 2021, the Company entered into an $80 million Committed Equity Facility with B. Riley Principal Capital, LLC (“B. Riley”), providing for enhanced liquidity,” Redwire said.

Business Highlights

  • Total Backlog1, as of March 31, 2022, remained relatively consistent with year-end at $273.9 million.
  • Building on the success of our Link-16 antennas, Redwire has been contracted to deliver multiple high gain antenna systems for a national security space LEO satellite constellation.
  • Delivered a fourth Roll-Out Solar Array (“ROSA”) wing for the International Space Station (“ISS”) ahead of baseline schedule. This capability is also utilized for the DART NASA planetary defense mission and will be used for the planned Lunar Gateway.
  • Delivered the camera controller, wireless antennas, and cable harnesses for the Artemis III Orion Camera System, an array of inspection and navigation cameras developed for NASA’s Orion Spacecraft.
  • Awarded a position on the $950 million indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity (“IDIQ”) contract to support U.S. Air Force Advanced Battle Management System.
  • Passed the Critical Design Review (“CDR”) for the On-Orbit Servicing, Assembly and Manufacturing 2 (OSAM-2) mission. OSAM-2, also known as Archinaut One, is a $73.7 million contract aimed at demonstrating the viability of robotic manufacture and assembly of satellites in space.

2022 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue increased $1.2 million, or 3.7%, to $32.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, from $31.7 million for the March 31, 2021 period.
  • Net (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA1 were $(17.3) million and $(4.7) million, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
  • Delays in contract awards, macroeconomic challenges, including inflation and supply chain delays in contractor start dates had a negative impact on performance.
  • On March 25, 2022, the Adams Street Partners Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility was upsized from $5.0 million to $25.0 million and on April 14, 2021, the Company entered into an $80 million Committed Equity Facility with B. Riley Principal Capital, LLC (“B. Riley”), providing for enhanced liquidity.

“In the first quarter, we continued to execute on our long-term strategy with some critical business and technical milestones such as the contract to deliver multiple high gain antenna systems for a national security space LEO satellite constellation and the delivery of ROSA Wings three and four for the ISS to our partners at Boeing. First quarter performance was impacted by delays in contract awards and subcontractor order fulfillment, as well as increased investment in bid and proposal (‘B&P’) and internal research and development (‘R&D’) spend. With a total backlog of $273.9 million as of March 31, 2022 and $547.3 million in bids submitted and under review as of May 9, 2022, we remain confident in the full year forecast provided in our prior earnings release. We expect revenues to grow throughout the year and create improved operational leverage.”

“We continue to make investments in facilities such as our new solar array and large deployable production facility in Goleta, CA, expansion of our antenna production facility in Longmont, CO and new office in Luxembourg to grow new business and technologies through B&P and R&D spending. We are confident in our capital position, with immediately available liquidity in excess of $30 million and access to additional resources, as needed, through our committed equity facility with B. Riley.”

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“U.S. GAAP”). These financial measures include Total backlog, Adjusted EBITDA, and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA.

We use certain financial measures to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans, and make strategic decisions, including those relating to operating expenses and the allocation of internal resources which are not calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP and are considered to be Non-GAAP financial performance measures. These Non-GAAP financial performance measures are used to supplement the financial information presented on a U.S. GAAP basis and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the relevant U.S. GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with information presented on a U.S. GAAP basis. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of Non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss adjusted for interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, acquisition deal costs, acquisition integration costs, acquisition earnout costs, purchase accounting fair value adjustment related to deferred revenue, capital market and advisory fees, write-off of long-lived assets, equity-based compensation and warrant liability change in fair value adjustment. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is computed in accordance with Article 8 of Regulation S-X and is computed to give effect to the business combinations as if they occurred on January 1 of the year in which they occurred.

TOTAL BACKLOG
(Unaudited)

We view growth in backlog as a key measure of our business growth. Contracted backlog represents the estimated dollar value of firm funded executed contracts for which work has not been performed (also known as the remaining performance obligations on a contract). Our contracted backlog includes $29.6 million and $10.7 million in remaining contract value from time and materials contracts as of March 31, 2022 and as of December 31, 2021, respectively.

Organic contracted backlog change excludes backlog activity from acquisitions for the first four full quarters since the entities’ acquisition date. Contracted backlog activity for the first four full quarters since the entities’ acquisition date is included in acquisition-related contracted backlog change. After the completion of four fiscal quarters, acquired entities are treated as organic for current and comparable historical periods.

Organic contract value includes the remaining contract value as of January 1 not yet recognized as revenue and additional orders awarded during the period for those entities treated as organic. Acquisition-related contract value includes remaining contract value as of the acquisition date not yet recognized as revenue and additional orders awarded during the period for entities not treated as organic. Similarly, organic revenue includes revenue earned during the period presented for those entities treated as organic, while acquisition-related revenue includes the same for all other entities, excluding any pre-acquisition revenue earned during the period.

Contracted backlog at end of period$137,301 $139,742

Our total backlog as of March 31, 2022, which includes both contracted and uncontracted backlog, was $273.9 million. Uncontracted backlog represents the anticipated contract value, or portion thereof, of goods and services to be delivered under existing contracts which have not been appropriated or otherwise authorized. Our uncontracted backlog as of March 31, 2022 was $136.6 million. Uncontracted backlog includes $74.6 million of contract extensions under negotiation that are priced, fully scoped, verbally awarded, and expected to be executed shortly.
