In the same period one year ago, Kratos reported a net loss of $24.2 million on revenue of $713.9 million.

At the same time it released quarterly results, Kratos said it recorded a noncash goodwill and intangible asset impairment charge of $96.6 million. Kratos said the charge β€œis related primarily to previously acquired legacy services businesses, which the company has de-emphasized as part of its core strategy over the past several years, as Kratos builds a specialty product and technology-based business.”

The defense contractor also reported it had a backlog of work worth $1.3 billion.

Shares of Kratos trade on the Nasdaq under the symbol KTOS.
