Engility to Further Enhance its Cost Competitiveness

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL) today announced a strategic realignment to further streamline the company’s business operations.

While Engility is widely recognized as having one of the lowest rate structures in the Government Services market, the moves announced today will further reduce the company’s overhead costs for 2014, enabling Engility to maintain its industry-leading competitive rates next year in what is expected to remain a challenging budget environment.

Specifically, the company announced the combination of two of its operating units into a single business group focused on engineering and program management services. Going forward, Engility’s business groups will report directly to the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Tony Smeraglinolo, eliminating a reporting level for these operations. John Heller, who has been serving as the company’s Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, is leaving the company to pursue other professional interests. Mr. Heller joined L-3 Communications in April 2012 to support Engility’s spin-off as a new independent publicly traded company in July 2012. Engility has also initiated other organizational changes and budget reduction activities to further reduce the company’s operating costs for 2014.

“Engility is committed to providing its customers with the highest quality services at the lowest possible cost,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “In this challenging environment, our customers need our help in ensuring they can still perform their important missions within the reduced budgets they have available.”

“This new streamlined organization enhances our competitiveness and raises the visibility of our programs to ensure they get the highest level of leadership attention within Engility.” Regarding Mr. Heller’s departure from Engility, Tony Smeraglinolo added, “John has been an instrumental contributor to the formation of Engility as an industry-leading services company. On behalf of Engility’s leadership and employees, we wish him well and great success in his future pursuits.”
