SAIC Announces First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 Results


Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAIC), a leading technology integrator providing full life-cycle services and solutions in the technical, engineering, intelligence, and enterprise information technology markets, today announced results for the first quarter ended May 5, 2017.

"In the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, SAIC's business development and cash flow performance was strong. The first quarter margins were below expectations due to increased costs and investment on our platform integration programs as we work towards completing Marine Corps prototype vehicles." said SAIC CEO Tony Moraco. "We continue to focus on operational improvements and disciplined capital deployment that provide the company with a strong foundation to execute against improving market dynamics."

Revenues for the quarter decreased $112 million, or 9%, compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to one additional week in the prior year quarter ($88 million), contracts losses ($25 million) and other net declines across the portfolio primarily due to customer budget constraints. These decreases were partially offset by higher revenue on platform integration programs supporting the U.S. Marine Corps and a new information technology contract supporting the U.S. Army ($29 million).

The Company's internal revenue contraction(1) for the first quarter was 1.8%. As is shown in Schedule 5, to calculate internal revenue growth or contraction, first quarter fiscal 2017 revenues were adjusted to exclude the estimated impact of the additional week in order to provide a more equitable comparison to the current year.

Operating income as a percentage of revenues increased to 5.7% of revenues, compared to 5.4% for the prior year quarter due to the absence of acquisition and integration costs in the current year ($7 million), a reduction in estimated lease exit costs as we rationalize our facilities in the National Capital Region ($7 million) and lower amortization of intangible assets ($2 million), partially offset by higher net unfavorable changes in estimates on contracts accounted for under the percentage-of-completion method ($11 million). Net unfavorable changes in estimates were largely driven by increased costs to meet testing and mission requirements necessary to complete the Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) phase of the platform integration programs supporting the U.S. Marine Corps ($9 million).

Net income for the quarter increased $16 million from the comparable prior year period primarily due to lower income tax expense ($16 million), as a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. Based on the required adoption of the new standard we recognize the excess tax benefits ($16 million) related to employee share-based payments as a reduction to income tax expense rather than as previously recorded to additional paid in capital in equity.

EBITDA(1) as a percentage of revenues for the quarter was 6.6%, compared to 6.7% for the prior year quarter, which was impacted by higher net unfavorable changes in estimates on contracts accounted for under the percentage-of-completion method, offset by a reduction in estimated lease exit costs and the absence of acquisition and integration costs in the current year.

Diluted earnings per share was $1.08 for the quarter. Diluted earnings per share was impacted by the accounting change related to ASU 2016-09 by $0.35. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the quarter was 45.5 million shares.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment

Total cash flows provided by operating activities for the first quarter were $88 million, which represented an increase from the comparable prior year quarter. The increase in operating cash flows over the prior year period was primarily due to payments for an extra week of payroll in the prior year quarter, excess tax benefits for stock based compensation in the current year quarter ($16 million) and prior year working capital investments in Marine Corps platform integration and IT services programs ($5 million).

During the quarter SAIC deployed $61 million of capital, consisting of $38 million in plan share repurchases (474 thousand shares) under SAIC's previously announced share repurchase program, $14 million in cash dividends, and $9 million for a voluntary debt prepayment.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.31 per share of the Company's common stock payable on July 28, 2017 to stockholders of record on July 14, 2017. SAIC intends to continue paying dividends on a quarterly basis, although the declaration of any future dividends will be determined by the Board of Directors each quarter and will depend on earnings, financial condition, capital requirements and other factors.

New Business Awards

Net bookings for the quarter were approximately $1.3 billion, which reflects a book-to-bill ratio of approximately 1.2. SAIC's estimated backlog of signed business orders at the end of the quarter was approximately $8.2 billion of which $1.8 billion was funded.

SAIC was awarded the following notable contracts during the quarter:

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: The General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) awarded SAIC a new task order on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to deliver, manage, and evolve end-user information technology (IT) services, communication and collaboration tools, and end-user devices and applications for the entire EPA enterprise. The single-award contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total award value of approximately $320 million if all options are exercised.

U.S. Intelligence Community: SAIC was awarded contracts and task orders valued at approximately $222 million, if all options are exercised, by U.S. national security and intelligence community customers. Although these customers and the specific nature of these contracts are classified, they all encompass strategic, end-to-end services that help bolster national security.

U.S. Navy - Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic: The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic awarded SAIC a task order to continue to perform command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) engineering upgrades and integration for tactical vehicles. The task order has a one-year base period of performance, a six-month option, and a total award value of approximately $61 million if the option is exercised.

SAIC was awarded the following notable contract subsequent to the end of the quarter:

NASA GSFC Omnibus Multidisciplinary Engineering Services: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) awarded SAIC a new single-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract to provide multidiscipline engineering support services to the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The NASA Omnibus Multidiscipline Engineering Services (OMES) II contract covers engineering support to Goddard's Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate (AETD). SAIC will provide engineering services for the study, design, systems engineering, development, fabrication, integration, testing, verification, and operation of spaceflight, airborne, and ground system hardware and software, including development and validation of new technologies to enable future space and science missions. The contract has a five-year base period of performance and an award ceiling of $620 million.

BACKLOG

(Unaudited)

 

The estimated value of our total backlog as of the dates presented was:

 
   

May 5,

February 3,
2017

  (in millions)
Funded backlog $ 1,790   $ 1,811
Negotiated unfunded backlog     6,406     6,209
Total backlog   $ 8,196   $ 8,020
 

Backlog represents the estimated amount of future revenues to be recognized under negotiated contracts and task orders as work is performed and excludes contract awards which have been protested by competitors until the protest is resolved in our favor. SAIC segregates backlog into two categories, funded backlog and negotiated unfunded backlog. Funded backlog for contracts with government agencies primarily represents contracts for which funding is appropriated less revenues previously recognized on these contracts, and does not include the unfunded portion of contracts where funding is incrementally appropriated or authorized by the U.S. government and other customers even though the contract may call for performance over a number of years. Funded backlog for contracts with non-government agencies represents the estimated value of contracts which may cover multiple future years under which SAIC is obligated to perform, less revenues previously recognized on these contracts. Negotiated unfunded backlog represents the estimated future revenues to be earned from negotiated contracts for which funding has not been appropriated or authorized, and unexercised priced contract options. Negotiated unfunded backlog does not include any estimate of future potential task orders expected to be awarded under indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ), U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) schedules or other master agreement contract vehicles.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(Unaudited)

 
This schedule describes the non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release. While we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful in evaluating our financial information, they should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations, definitions, and how we believe these measures are useful to management and investors are provided below. Other companies may define similar measures differently.
 

Internal revenue growth

Prior year period's revenues, as reported $ 1,215

Estimated impact of 53rd week (88 )
Revenues of acquired business for the pre-acquisition prior year period     -  
Prior year period's revenues, as adjusted 1,123
Current year revenues, as reported     1,103  
Internal revenue growth (contraction)(1)   $ (20 )
Internal revenue growth (contraction) percentage (1.8 %)
 

We utilize internal revenue growth (or internal revenue contraction if negative) to evaluate revenue growth after the completion of acquisitions. Internal revenue growth is calculated by comparing our reported revenues for the current year to the reported revenues for the prior year comparable period adjusted to include any pre-acquisition historical revenues of acquired businesses. We also adjust current and prior year revenue to exclude the impact of revenue performed by our former parent company, Leidos Holdings, Inc. ("former Parent") since revenues on pre-separation joint work are recorded equal to cost and are expected to decline over time. For fiscal 2017, a 53-week fiscal year, we have also adjusted revenue to exclude the estimated impact of the additional week in order to facilitate comparison to the current year period. We estimate the revenue impact of the additional week by dividing the prior year's revenues for the first quarter by the number of days in the first quarter and multiplying that amount by the number of additional days in the first quarter. We believe that adjusting prior year revenues to reflect the impact of the additional week improves comparability since differences in the number of days generally have a direct impact on the amount of revenues earned during the respective periods. We believe that internal revenue growth provides management and investors with useful information in assessing trends on how successful the Company has been in growing revenues as we develop our base business and access new markets and capabilities provided by acquisitions.

Acquisition and integration costs     -       7  
Adjusted operating income(1) $ 63 $ 73
Adjusted operating income as a percentage of revenues     5.7 %     6.0 %
 

EBITDA is a performance measure that is calculated by taking net income and excluding interest expense, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income are performance measures that exclude acquisition and integration costs that we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operating performance as they relate to the Company's significant acquisition of Scitor. We believe that these performance measures provide management and investors with useful information in assessing trends in our ongoing operating performance and may provide greater visibility in understanding the long-term financial performance of the Company.

Free cash flow is calculated by taking cash flows provided by operating activities less expenditures for property, plant, and equipment. We believe that free cash flow provides management and investors with useful information in assessing trends in our cash flows and in comparing them to other peer companies, many of whom present a similar non-GAAP liquidity measure. This measure should not be considered as a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes.
