Companies mentioned in this article: SAIC

MCLEAN, Va., June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAIC), a technical, engineering and enterprise information technology company, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended May 2, 2014. SAIC commenced operations on September 27, 2013 (during the third quarter of fiscal 2014) following completion of a spin-off transaction from its former parent.

"SAIC started the year well with revenue and operating income consistent with last quarter and strong operating cash flow performance," said Tony Moraco, SAIC Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to pursue efforts aligned with our strategy to protect and incrementally expand our revenue base while improving our operating margins. Our strong cash flow performance in the quarter strengthens our ability to execute our capital deployment strategy."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the first quarter were $977 million ($962 million excluding revenues performed by former parent), compared to $1,139 million during the first quarter of the prior year ($1,107 million excluding revenues performed by former parent). Revenues contracted primarily due to the loss of the DISN Global Solutions program, decrease in logistics program activity largely related to in-theater force drawdown, lower material and subcontract revenues on Department of Defense contract vehicles, completion of a program to provide technical support to the Army Reserve and National Guard and the impact of one less productive day in the current quarter.

Operating income for the quarter was $59 million (6.1% of revenues excluding revenues performed by former parent), up from $52 million (4.7% of revenues excluding revenues performed by former parent) in the prior year period. Current year results include $1 million of severance expense as we continue to optimize our operating model. The increase in operating income was primarily driven by the absence in the current year of separation transaction and restructuring costs and current year net favorable changes in contract profit estimates. These impacts were partially offset by reduced income due to revenue contraction and completion of higher profit margin contracts.

Net income for the quarter was $34 million compared to $33 million in the prior year period. Despite incurring interest expense in the quarter on long-term debt obtained in conjunction with the spin-off completed in September 2013, net income remained consistent relative to the prior year quarter primarily due to the above-described impacts to operating income.

Diluted earnings per share was $0.69 for the first quarter. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the quarter was 49.4 million shares.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment

Cash flow provided by operating activities for the first quarter was $34 million, which was a $49 million improvement compared to the same period in the previous year. The improvement was largely due to strong current quarter customer collections and reduction in prepaid expenses. As of May 2, 2014, the Company had $237 million in cash and cash equivalents and $502 million in long-term debt.

In the quarter, SAIC deployed $39 million, consisting of $13 million in cash dividends and $26 million in share repurchases (approximately 685,000 shares) under the Company's previously announced share repurchase program.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

Subsequent to quarter end, the Board of Directors authorized and declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.28 per share payable on July 30, 2014, to stockholders of record on July 15, 2014. The Company 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 first quarter were approximately $910 million which reflects a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9. Notable awards received during the first quarter included:

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) EAGLE II: SAIC was selected by the DHS as a prime contractor on the Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions II (EAGLE II) contract. This contract enables SAIC to compete for a full range of information technology services on the Unrestricted Track of Functional Category 1. EAGLE II is a multiple award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract vehicle that provides a $22 billion ceiling for all awardees to procure information technology services over the seven-year period of performance. Services provided through the EAGLE II contract vehicle will directly support the DHS mission in areas such as border security, entry/exit and protection of critical infrastructure. The contract is being novated to SAIC from Leidos Holdings, Inc. (SAIC's former parent under which the proposal was submitted prior to separation).

Joint Force Development Services (JFDSS) JSJ7: SAIC will provide training, education and exercise solutions and services in support of the Joint Staff J-7 (JSJ7) Directorate, Combatant Commands, the military services, U.S. government agencies, and multinational partners. SAIC is one of seven companies awarded the Joint Force Development Services (JFDSS) indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract. The multiple-award contract has a five-year period of performance and total potential value of more than $800 million for all awardees. Work will be performed primarily in Arlington and Hampton Roads, Va.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company continued to receive incremental increases in contract awards, including:

United States Marine Corps (USMC) Assault Amphibious Vehicles Upgrade: The USMC Program Executive Office - Land Systems (PEO-LS) awarded SAIC a prime contract to engineer, design and test upgrades to 10 prototype and 52 low-rate initial production (LRIP) vehicles for the Legacy Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) Personnel Carrier Variant Platform program. The multiple-award (two awardees), firm fixed-price contract has a ten-month period of performance and an initial contract value of $16 million to execute preliminary and critical design reviews. Additional options will be awarded to one of the two awardees for prototype vehicle build and testing followed by possible low rate initial production, resulting in a total contract value of more than $190 million over five years. Work will be performed primarily in Charleston, S.C.

The Company's backlog of signed business orders at the end of the quarter was $6.6 billion. Negotiated backlog does not include any estimate of future task orders expected to be awarded under indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, U.S. General Services Administration schedules or other master agreement contract vehicles.

    Backlog represents the estimated amount of future revenues to be recognized under negotiated contracts as
     work is performed and excludes contract awards which have been protested by competitors. The Company
     segregates its 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 on a quarterly or annual basis 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 on
     contracts, which may cover multiple future years, under which the Company is obligated to perform, less
     revenues previously recognized on these contracts. Negotiated unfunded backlog represents the estimated
     amounts of revenue to be earned in the future from (1) negotiated contracts for which funding has not been
