COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vectrus Systems Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vectrus, Inc. (NYSE: VEC), has received a more than $329 million modification to the U.S. Army base operations and security support services contract in Kuwait. The modification runs through Dec. 28, 2016. The work will be conducted in the Kuwait area of operations. Army Contracting Command at Rock Island, Ill., is the contracting activity.
"The Kuwait Base Operations and Security Support Services contract provides full spectrum base operations, training and equipping capability for service members that will generally transition to operations in the Middle East or Central Asia," said Ken Hunzeker, chief executive officer at Vectrus. "This contract modification allows Vectrus to continue to provide exceptional value through strong performance on the largest U.S. military footprint in the Middle East."
In addition, Vectrus Systems Corporation has been awarded a more than $22 million modification to the previously awarded Turkey-Spain Base Maintenance Contract (TSBMC) to support the contingency personnel surge for Operation Inherent Resolve. Work will be performed at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, and is expected to be complete by March 27, 2017. The Air Force Installation Contracting Agency, Kapaun Air Station, Germany, is the contracting activity.
"These modifications are longer in duration, with higher funding than our last modifications, which provides greater revenue and cash flow visibility, while adding to funded backlog," said Matt Klein, chief financial officer at Vectrus. "We considered the potential for these modifications and factored them into our 2016 guidance ranges."
