CEO Commentary and Outlook
Ken Asbury, CACI’s President and CEO, said, “We delivered another record quarter of revenue and operating income and won $1.3 billion of contract awards. We are also thrilled to announce our two most recent acquisitions, which, combined with CACI, will deliver differentiated, high-value, cutting-edge signals intelligence, electronic warfare, and cyber operations products and solutions. We are raising full-year revenue and net income guidance to account for the strong performance in our core business and reflect the contribution of our new acquisitions. We are confident in our ability to deliver our long-term organic revenue growth and margin expansion commitments while continuing to generate value for our customers and shareholders.”
Second Quarter Results as Reported
Second Quarter Results Assuming Tax Reform was in Place for Fiscal 2018
Revenue for the second quarter of Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) increased compared to the second quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18) driven by new business wins, on-contract growth, and acquired contracts. Operating income growth was driven by strong program performance and indirect cost control. GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share decreased due to the impact of the passage in December 2017 of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act (“Tax Reform”) on the second quarter of FY18 net income and diluted earnings per share. In the year earlier period, net income and diluted earnings per share benefited from a reduction in our net deferred tax liability of $94.8 million due to the lower tax rate, partially offset by a tax expense of $9.7 million associated with cumulative foreign earnings. For a more meaningful comparison of our second quarter FY19 net income, see page 11 of this release for a reconciliation of second quarter FY18 results assuming a full year of Tax Reform. Based on this adjusted comparison, net income growth for the quarter was driven by the same factors which drove operating income.
Net cash provided by operations in the second quarter of FY19 was $56.4 million. Operating cash flow was impacted by normal fluctuations as well as lower collections due to closures of some government payment offices in the last few days of the quarter. The lower cash collections increased our accounts receivable balances as well as our Days Sales Outstanding (DSO).
Additional Financial Metrics
Second Quarter Awards and Contract Funding Orders
Our contract awards in the quarter were $1.3 billion, which excludes ceiling values of multi-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts, and approximately 16% higher than the same period last year. Approximately 70 percent of our awards were for new business. Some notable awards during the quarter were:A five-year task order, with a ceiling value of $318 million, to deliver new electronic warfare and signals intelligence systems to a Department of Defense customer. A five-year, $125 million task order to design, develop, implement, and maintain logistics systems for the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command. A five-year, $73 million prime contract to support systems and computer engineering, research and development, integration, and deployment of surface warfare systems for the Naval Surface Warfare Center. The award is a result of CACI’s acquisition of the Systems Engineering and Acquisition Support Services Business Unit. A 30-month, $31.5 million prime contract to optimize and sustain the Defense Enterprise Accounting and Management System (DEAMS), the Air Force enterprise-wide financial solution. CACI will integrate legacy Air Force financial management systems into a single system capable of delivering accurate, reliable, timely and auditable financial management information that complies with directives from the secretary of defense. A prime position on the nine-year, multiple-award Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-3 Services (ITES-3S) IDIQ contract, with a ceiling value of $12 billion, to offer a broad range of end-to-end enterprise IT services to the U.S. Army.
Contract funding orders in the quarter were $1.0 billion, 33.6 percent higher than the year earlier quarter. Total backlog at December 31, 2018 was $12.6 billion, a 15.7 percent increase over the year earlier. Funded backlog at December 31, 2018 was $2.5 billion, 29.3 percent higher than the year earlier.

Six Months Results as Reported
Six Months Results Assuming Tax Reform was in Place for Fiscal 2018
Revenue in the first half of FY19 increased compared to the year earlier period due primarily to new business wins, on-contract growth, and acquired contracts. Operating income increased primarily due to the factors noted above. GAAP net income decreased due to the impact of Tax Reform in FY18. Net cash provided by operations in the first half of FY19 was $139.5 million. For a more meaningful comparison of our first half FY19 net income, see page 11 of this release for a reconciliation of first half FY18 results assuming a full year of Tax Reform. Based on this comparison, net income growth for the first half was driven by the same factors which drove operating income plus additional tax savings. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the first half of FY19 was $238.7 million, 26.0 percent higher than adjusted EBITDA of $189.4 million for the first half of FY18.
On January 30, 2019, we announced that we had entered into an agreement to acquire LGS Innovations, a leading provider of signals intelligence (SIGINT), electronic warfare (EW) and cyber products and solutions to the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense with a legacy back to Bell Labs; and acquired Mastodon Design, experts in the rapid design of rugged SIGINT, EW, and cyber operations equipment. The acquisitions will enable us to leverage their integrated technology and capabilities to create scalable SIGINT, EW, and cyber products and solutions providing advanced operational capabilities to our customers addressing emerging near-peer threats.
CACI Raises its FY19 Annual Guidance
We are increasing and narrowing our revenue guidance range to reflect improved performance in the core CACI business and an approximate $125 million revenue contribution from the two acquisitions. We are also revising our FY19 Net Income guidance primarily due to expectations for increases in the core CACI business profitability in the second half of FY19, as well as stronger than anticipated second quarter results and positive contributions of the two acquisitions. These will be partly offset by approximately $13 million of one-time transaction costs, net of tax.
The table below summarizes these changes and represents our views as of January 30, 2019:
