SAIC Announces Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2019 Results

December 6, 2018

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 6, 2018--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 third quarter ended November 2, 2018.

“As we prepare for the future, we continue to focus on delivering strong performance across our contract portfolio, as evidenced by our third quarter results. Our fifth consecutive quarter of revenue growth and the highest profitability in our five year history are proof points of the disciplined execution of our strategy,” said SAIC CEO Tony Moraco. “We look forward to accelerating the execution of our long term strategy, Ingenuity 2025, with the acquisition of Engility. We will enter next year with increased customer access, more investments in competitive and differentiated solutions, along with improved cash flow to enhance opportunities for shareholder value creation.”

Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2019: Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter increased $32 million, or 2.8%, compared to the prior year quarter due to newly awarded contracts ($54 million), which includes an information technology (IT) integration contract supporting state and local customers, and increased orders in our supply chain portfolio ($24 million). These increases were partially offset by completion of contracts and other net decreases across our portfolio ($46 million).

Operating income as a percentage of revenues of 6.2%, was consistent with 6.3% for the prior year quarter.

Adjusted operating income (1) as a percentage of revenues increased to 7.4%, compared to 6.4% for the prior year quarter due to improved performance across our portfolio ($22 million), inclusive of newly awarded contracts, and higher net favorable changes in estimates related to performance obligations satisfied over time ($14 million). These improvements were partially offset by an increase in our inventory provision ($25 million).

Net income for the quarter increased $5 million as compared to the same period in the prior year due to a lower effective tax rate, partially offset by expenses associated with the debt refinancing activities in the current quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA (1) as a percentage of revenues for the quarter increased to 8.3%, compared to 7.4% for the prior year quarter, consistent with adjusted operating income (1).

Diluted earnings per share was $1.11 for the quarter and adjusted diluted earnings per share (1) was $1.35. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the quarter was 43.2 million shares.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment

Cash flows provided by operating activities for the third quarter were $86 million, compared to $80 million during the same period in the prior year. The improvement is primarily due to higher customer collections, partially offset by an increase in vendor payments and payments for acquisition and integration costs.

During the quarter SAIC deployed $13 million of capital in cash dividends. No plan share repurchases were made during the quarter pending the close of the Engility acquisition.

New Business Awards

Net bookings for the quarter were approximately $1.2 billion, which reflects a book-to-bill ratio of 1.0. SAIC’s estimated backlog of signed business orders at the end of the quarter was approximately $10.4 billion of which $2.4 billion was funded. Although not contributing to bookings for the quarter, SAIC was awarded several single-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity vehicles with $1.2 billion of ceiling value.
