Redwire will live stream a presentation with slides. Please use the link below to follow along with the live stream:

Q2 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue increased $4.6 million, or 14.2%, to $36.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, from $32.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021.
  • Successful delivery of proven and differentiated products and services for multiple National Security Space (“NSS”) and commercial customers, including for multi-year, multi-shipset missions.
  • Operational successes have led to additional work and cross-selling of higher gross margin products and services with improved on-time deliveries, including for large solar array programs and navigation component projects.
  • Investments continue to expand production capacity and increase scale and execution efficiency; opened new facility in Luxembourg to specialize in design and development of robotic arms for orbital, free-flying and lunar missions.
  • Our significantly higher 1.68 book-to-bill ratio1, combined with increased gross margins, provides for an improved financial outlook for the second half of 2022 and 2023.

“We continued to execute on our long-term strategy during the second quarter, building on our diversified portfolio of proven products, demonstrated flight heritage and long-term customer relationships across the government civil, national security and commercial segments,” stated Peter Cannito, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Redwire. “With approximately seventy percent of our revenue from government contracts in the expanding civil space and national security segments that have been cultivated over decades, Redwire has a solid foundation to capitalize on the extraordinary potential of the rapidly growing commercial space segment as that segment emerges over time. We are well-positioned for the long term, regardless of the broader macro-economic environment.”

Additional Q2 2022 Financial Highlights:

  • Net loss and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA1 were $(77.0) million and $(4.1) million, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to net loss and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA of $(15.9) million and $2.1 million, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The net loss in the second quarter of 2022 included an $80.5 million non-cash goodwill, intangible and long-lived asset impairment charge.
  • The three months ended June 30, 2022 delivered better financial performance compared to the three months ended March 31, 2022 with improved revenues of 11.7%, gross margin of 3.3%, Adjusted EBITDA1 of 13.2%, and Free Cash Flow1 of $(0.5) million compared to $(6.4) million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and March 31, 2022, respectively.
  • Redwire expects to achieve positive Adjusted EBITDA in the second half of 2022 driven by increased revenue and changes in contract mix with higher gross margins. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, Redwire is updating its previously provided guidance and now expects revenues to be in a range of approximately $165 million to $175 million and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA2 to be in a range between $(2.0) million and $3.0 million.

“Q2 revenues grew year-over-year and sequentially,” said Jonathan Baliff, Chief Financial Officer of Redwire. “Our flight heritage and investments we have made in the first half of 2022 create the scale to compete and win more and larger opportunities, as demonstrated by our second quarter 2022 book-to-bill ratio of 1.68. When combined with new contract awards with increased gross margin, Redwire has a much-improved financial outlook for the second half of 2022 and 2023 compared to the first half of 2022.”

1 Total book-to-bill, a key business measure, and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA are not a measure of results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” and the reconciliation tables included in this press release for details regarding the calculation of book-to-bill, Adjusted EBITDA and Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA.

Capitalization and Liquidity

On August 8, 2022, the Company entered into the Fourth Amendment to the Adams Street Capital Credit Agreement. The Fourth Amendment, among other things, suspends the requirement to comply with the consolidated total net leverage ratio, commencing with the quarter ended June 30, 2022 through June 30, 2023. The Company is required to maintain a minimum liquidity covenant of $5 million measured on the last day of each fiscal month commencing with month ending September 30, 2022 through September 30, 2023. In addition, the Fourth Amendment increased the per annum interest rate with respect to the initial term loans, delayed draw term loans and revolving loans by 2.00%, which interest shall accrue and be paid in kind, until the Company is in compliance with the consolidated total net leverage ratio.

In connection with the execution of the Fourth Amendment, AE Industrial Partners Fund II, LP and certain of its affiliates (the “AEI Guarantors”), provided a limited guarantee for the payment of outstanding term loans up to $7.5 million in the aggregate. In the event that the AEI Guarantors are required to make payments to the lenders under the Adams Street Capital Credit Agreement pursuant to the terms of the limited guarantee, each AEI Guarantor would be subrogated to the rights of the lenders. In connection with the limited guarantee, the Lead Borrower agreed to pay to the AEI Guarantors, a fee equal to 2% of any amount actually paid by such guarantors under the limited guarantee. The fee is waivable by the AEI Guarantors in their discretion.

1 Free Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” and the reconciliation tables included in this press release for details regarding the calculation of Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma Adjusted EBITDA.
2 Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. We are unable to provide guidance for net income (loss) or reconciliations to forward looking net income (loss) because we are unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of certain reconciling items without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation. Thus, we are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of the aforementioned forward looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely comparable forward looking U.S. GAAP financial measure because such information is not available. See Appendix for more information regarding Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA.

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, book-to-bill, Adjusted EBITDA, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow.

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, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow are three such Non-GAAP financial measures that we use. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted for interest expense (income), net, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment expense, acquisition deal costs, acquisition integration costs, acquisition earnout costs, purchase accounting fair value adjustment related to deferred revenue, severance costs, capital market and advisory fees, write-off of long-lived assets, equity-based compensation, committed equity facility transaction costs, and warrant liability fair value adjustments. 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. Free Cash Flow is computed as Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures and changes in net working capital.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.


Book-to-bill is the ratio of total contract awarded to revenues recorded in the same period. The contracts awarded balance includes firm contract orders including time and material contracts which were awarded during the period and does not include unexercised contract options or potential orders under indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts. Although the contracts awarded balance reflects firm contract orders, terminations, amendments, or contract cancellations may occur which could result in a reduction to the contracts awarded balance.

We view book-to-bill as an indicator of future revenue growth potential. To drive future revenue growth, our goal is for the level of contract awarded in a given period to exceed the revenue recorded, thus yielding a book-to-bill ratio greater than 1.0.

Our book-to-bill ratio was as follows for the periods presented:

  Three Months Ended June 30, 2022 Three Months Ended June 30, 2021  Six Months Ended June 30, 2022  Six Months Ended June 30, 2021
(in thousands, except ratio)       
Contracts awarded$61,563 $14,484 $91,990 $81,718
Revenues 36,728  32,148  69,595  63,846
Book-to-bill ratio 1.68  0.45  1.32  1.28

Our book-to-bill ratio was 1.68 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to 0.45 for the three months ended June 30, 2021. For both the three months ended June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021, none of the contracts awarded balance relates to acquired contract value.

Our book-to-bill ratio was 1.32 for six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to 1.28 for six months ended June 30, 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, none of the contracts awarded balance relates to acquired contract value. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, $37.7 million of the contracts awarded balance relates to acquired contract value from the Oakman and DPSS acquisitions.


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 $32.9 million and $10.7 million in remaining contract value from time and materials contracts as of June 30, 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.

(in thousands) June 30, 2022   December 31, 2021
Organic backlog as of January 1$133,115 $122,273
Organic additions during the period 84,302  146,880
Organic revenue recognized during the period (66,793)  (136,038)
Organic backlog at end of period 150,624  133,115
Acquisition-related contract value beginning of period 6,627  
Acquisition-related additions during the period 7,688  8,190
Acquisition-related revenue recognized during the period (2,802)  (1,563)
Acquisition-related backlog at end of period 11,513  6,627
Contracted backlog at end of period$162,137 $139,742

Our total backlog as of June 30, 2022, which includes both contracted and uncontracted backlog, was $251.7 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 June 30, 2022 was $89.5 million. Uncontracted backlog includes $25.5 million of contract extensions under negotiation that are priced, fully scoped, verbally awarded, and expected to be executed shortly.
