RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 12, 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 first quarter ended May 4, 2018.
“Solid execution in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 resulted in SAIC’s third consecutive quarter of revenue growth and strong cash flow generation,” said SAIC CEO Tony Moraco. “Continued momentum enabled by the execution of our strategy against an improving federal budget environment allows us to invest for the future in both innovative technologies and new business opportunities."
First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2019: Summary Operating Results
Revenues for the quarter increased $72 million, or 6.5%, compared to the prior year quarter due to revenue on new contracts primarily supporting NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ($47 million) and increased orders in our supply chain portfolio ($64 million). These increases were partially offset by completion of contracts and other net decreases across our portfolio ($39 million).
Operating income as a percentage of revenues decreased to 5.6%, compared to 5.7% for the prior year quarter, driven by higher supply chain material content which generate lower operating margins.
Net income for the quarter remained consistent as compared to the same period in the prior year. Higher operating income was offset by a lower tax deduction from stock-based compensation in the current quarter.
EBITDA (1) as a percentage of revenues for the quarter decreased to 6.5%, compared to 6.6% for the prior year quarter, driven by higher supply chain material content which generate lower operating margins.
Diluted earnings per share was $1.13 for the quarter. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the quarter was 43.4 million shares.
Cash Generation and Capital Deployment
Total cash flows provided by operating activities for the first quarter were $88 million, consistent with the same period in the prior year. A net increase in working capital investments in platform integration programs supporting the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps was offset by strong customer collections in the current quarter.
During the quarter SAIC deployed $54 million of capital, consisting of $32 million in plan share repurchases (412 thousand shares) under SAIC’s previously announced share repurchase program, $14 million in cash dividends and an $8 million term loan repayment.
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 27, 2018 to stockholders of record on July 13, 2018. 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 billion, which reflects a book-to-bill ratio of 0.8. SAIC’s estimated backlog of signed business orders at the end of the quarter was approximately $10 billion of which $1.9 billion was funded.
