KBR, Inc.: KBR Joint Venture Selected to Deliver Major Contract for United Kingdom Ministry of Defence

- (February 2, 2016) - KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been
awarded a major contract to support Ascent Flight Training in the delivery of
the United Kingdom Military Flight Training System (UKMFTS) program with the
UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), under a Joint Venture with Elbit Systems named
Affinity. The UKMFTS program is an innovative partnering agreement between UK
Front Line Commands, UK MOD, Ascent and other leading industry partners to
deliver aircrew training for the 21st century.

KBR's joint venture with Elbit Systems-Affinity Flying Training Services-has
been appointed to optimise the fixed wing flying training provision for the
UK MOD and to reduce the cost of pilot training. Affinity will procure,
operate and maintain aircraft, and aircraft related infrastructure, through
to 2033. The training aircraft will be the Grob G 120TP 'Prefect' for
elementary flying training, the Beechcraft 'Texan' T-6C for basic flying
training, and the Embraer 'Phenom' 100 for multi-engine pilot training.

"We are excited to be a part of this significant project and to continue to
grow and maintain a substantial presence in the United Kingdom," said Stuart
Bradie, KBR President and CEO. "This win is indicative of KBR's strategic
commitment to focus on long-term services contracts with annuity streams in
its Government Services segment particularly for the UK Government."

Affinity, under the leadership of Managing Director Iain Chalmers, will manage
and deliver the full fixed wing training aircraft fleet and maintenance
program. Affinity's service will support the UKMFTS desire to download
training tasks from front-line aircraft to cost effective training aircraft
and provide the required step-change in aircraft turn around and scheduling
to support optimisation of aircrew training hours. Thirty-eight modern, glass
cockpit aircraft will be delivered in a phased approach over the next three
years comprising 23 Grob G 120TP 'Prefects', 10 Beechcraft 'Texan' T-6Cs s
and 5 Embraer 'Phenom' 100 jets-all featuring digital cockpits, exposing
students at an early stage to the technologies they will rely on at the
operational level.

Revenue associated with this project is estimated to be around £500 million
which will be split evenly between the two joint venture partners.
Approximately £250 million in revenue from this project will be booked into
the backlog of KBR's Government Services segment in Q1 of 2016.
