MCLEAN, Va., March 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SAIC, Inc. (NYSE: SAI), a scientific, engineering, and technology applications company, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2010, which ended January 31, 2010.  

"We are pleased to complete the fiscal year with improved operating margin, earnings per share and cash generation," said Walt Havenstein, SAIC chief executive officer. "Our market positioning is strong, particularly our understanding of our customer's missions and our ability to deliver rapid-response, best-of-breed solutions for war fighters and the intelligence community.  We enter fiscal year 2011 with our portfolio of capabilities well aligned with national priorities, emphasizing areas such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), cybersecurity, logistics, energy, and health technology to fuel our growth and shareholder value prospects."  

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $2.68 billion, up 7 percent from $2.52 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.  Full-year revenues were $10.85 billion, up 8 percent from fiscal year 2009.  Internal revenue growth, which includes year-over-year performance of acquisitions, represented 4 percentage points of the consolidated revenue growth for the quarter and 6 percentage points of the consolidated revenue growth for the fiscal year.  Key drivers of internal revenue growth for the quarter included military logistics programs, defense systems engineering and information technology, and military healthcare information technology.    

Operating income for the quarter was $209 million (7.8 percent of revenue), up slightly from $208 million (8.3 percent of revenue) in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.   The year-over-year decline in operating margin was primarily attributable to an $8 million (28 percent) increase in bid and proposal expenses and a $6 million charge for the impairment of an intangible asset related to a fiscal year 2009 acquisition.  Full-year operating income was $867 million (8.0 percent of revenue), up 12 percent from $776 million (7.7 percent of revenue) in fiscal year 2009.

Income from continuing operations for the quarter was $123 million, up 3 percent from $119 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.  Full-year income from continuing operations was $500 million, up 12 percent from $447 million in fiscal year 2009.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the quarter were $0.31, up 7 percent from $0.29 in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009, driven by the increase in income from continuing operations and a lower share count compared to the prior year quarter.  The diluted share count for the quarter was 387 million, down 3 percent from 399 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009, due primarily to share repurchases made throughout the year.  Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the year were $1.24, up 15 percent from $1.08 in fiscal year 2009.  

Diluted earnings per share, which include discontinued operations, were $0.31 for the quarter, up 7 percent from $0.29 in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009.  Diluted earnings per share for the year were $1.24, up 14 percent from $1.09 in fiscal year 2009.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment

Cash flow provided by operations for fiscal year 2010 was $620 million, reflecting 1.25 times income from continuing operations and up 6 percent from $583 million in fiscal year 2009.  The increase in fiscal year 2010 was primarily due to increased net income from continuing operations. Days sales outstanding were 69 days, up slightly from 68 days at the end of fiscal year 2009.

During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010, the company used $99 million to fund acquisitions, including the acquisition of Science, Engineering, and Technology Associates Corporation, a leading provider of smart sensor-based technologies and information solutions.  Also, the company used $143 million to repurchase approximately 7.6 million shares including 7.2 million under the company's stock repurchase program and the remainder in recurring repurchases from employees in settlement of withholding taxes associated with stock option exercises and vesting events. As of January 31, 2010, the company had $861 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1.1 billion in long-term debt.  

Mark W. Sopp, SAIC chief financial officer commented, "In fiscal year 2010 we were able to meet or exceed our announced financial growth targets.  Our operating performance and cash generation allowed us to deploy cash towards acquisitions and share repurchases, while maintaining a conservative balance sheet for future growth initiatives."  

New Business Awards

Net new business bookings totaled $1.6 billion in the fourth quarter and $9.5 billion for the fiscal year, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.6 and 0.9 for the fourth quarter and fiscal year, respectively. Net bookings are calculated as the period's ending backlog plus the period's revenues less the prior period's ending backlog and less the backlog obtained in acquisitions during the period.  Net bookings were adversely affected by lower new contract awards and reductions in backlog from the partial termination of an element of the Army's Brigade Combat Team Modernization (BCTM) program and reductions in expected realizable revenues from other defense programs.

Large definite delivery contract awards received during the quarter include:

  • Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command Support.  SAIC was awarded a five-year, $249 million task order by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command to provide modeling, simulation, and analytically based warfare analysis support to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations' Assessment Division.

  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Support.  SAIC received a $235 million contract extension to continue work on the Unified NASA Information Technology Services (UNITeS) contract. The extension raises the ceiling value of the contract – first awarded to SAIC in 2004 – to more than $1.3 billion and extends the contract through January 2011. SAIC will continue to provide IT services to NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, and support all NASA centers, including NASA headquarters.

  • Entergy Corporation Support.  Under a $219 million follow-on contract awarded by Entergy, SAIC will provide comprehensive IT support services through 2015.  SAIC has supported Entergy since 1999.

  • National Science Foundation Support.  SAIC was awarded a five-year, $52 million contract by the National Science Foundation to manage its IT infrastructure and provide a comprehensive suite of IT, voice and data telecommunications, and related services.  

  • U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Systems Program Support.  SAIC received a five-year, $49 million, follow-on contract from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific to continue providing training and care for marine mammals that are part of the Navy's Marine Mammal Systems Program. The program, which SAIC has supported since 1986, trains dolphins and sea lions to provide security and to find and mark the location of underwater objects.  

  • Tarrant Regional Water District Integrated Pipeline Program Support.  Under an initial contract award of $8.7 million and a forecasted overall program management budget of $40 million, SAIC subsidiary R. W. Beck will provide program management services to support delivery of a new 180-mile raw water pipeline serving Tarrant Regional Water District and Dallas Water Utilities customers within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.  The program is scheduled for completion in 2018.

In addition, SAIC won several indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) and Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) contracts that are not included in net bookings.  Awards during the quarter include:

  • U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) Support. SAIC received a follow-on contract from the U.S. Department of Energy to provide technical, managerial and project support services to the EIA.  Services delivered by SAIC may include energy analysis and econometric modeling; statistical analysis; survey operations; and web and data system/software design and development.  The multiple-award, five-year IDIQ contract has a contract ceiling of $288 million for the three awardees.

  • U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Biomass Program Support. SAIC was awarded a blanket purchase agreement to provide independent engineering services to support the DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Biomass Program.  The BPA's period of performance expires September 30, 2015 and has a ceiling value of $21 million.

The company's backlog of signed business orders at the end of fiscal year 2010 was $15.6 billion, of which $5.3 billion was funded.  As compared to the end of fiscal year 2009, total backlog decreased 7 percent and funded backlog decreased 6 percent.  The negotiated unfunded backlog of $10.3 billion is the estimated amount of revenue to be earned in the future from negotiated contracts for which funding has not been authorized and unexercised priced contract options.  Negotiated unfunded backlog does not include any estimate of future potential task orders expected to be awarded under IDIQ, GSA Schedule or other master agreement contract vehicles.

Forward Guidance

In December 2009, the company provided initial guidance for fiscal year 2011, which was internal revenue growth at the low end of the company's long term goal of 6 percent to 9 percent, operating margin improvement of 20 to 30 basis points, and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations growth at the low end of the company's long term goal of 11 percent to 18 percent.

For fiscal year 2011, the company is now expecting internal revenue growth in the 3 percent to 6 percent range, operating margin improvement of 10 to 20 basis points, and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations growth in the 8 percent to 14 percent range.  These operating margin and diluted earnings per share expectations exclude the charges from the previously announced expiration of the Scottish Power IT outsourcing contract, currently estimated to be in the range of $20 to $30 million.

"The slower than anticipated pace of new contract awards, coupled with the tougher government contracting environment warrants an update to our previous expectations for fiscal year 2011," said Mark W. Sopp, SAIC chief financial officer. "While there is substantial growth in submitted proposals awaiting decision over last year, the timing of decisions is uncertain.  However, our contract win rates remain strong, and we believe our capabilities and investment focus on the higher growth areas position us well for the future."

    (a) On February 1, 2009, the company adopted an accounting standard
    regarding earnings per share that requires an allocation of income
    from continuing operations and net income to the company's unvested
    stock awards which are considered participating securities in
    accordance with the standard. The company's unvested stock awards
    are excluded from the weighted average number of shares outstanding.
    The company allocated the following amounts of income from
    continuing operations and net income to unvested stock awards for
    the purposes of calculating earnings per share (EPS):
    
        Income from continuing 
         operations for basic EPS    $4         $4      $15       $13      $9
        Income from continuing 
          operations for diluted EPS $4         $3      $15       $13      $9

    INTERNAL REVENUE GROWTH PERCENTAGE CALCULATIONS (NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION)
                       (Unaudited, $ in millions)
    
    In this release, SAIC, Inc. refers to internal revenue growth percentage,
    which is a non-GAAP financial measure that is reconciled to the most 
    directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  The company calculates its 
    internal revenue growth percentage by comparing reported revenue for the
    current year period to the revenue for the prior year period adjusted to 
    include the actual revenue of acquired businesses for the comparable prior
    year period before acquisition. This calculation has the effect of adding 
    revenue for the acquired businesses for the comparable prior year period 
    to the company's prior year period reported revenue.
    
    SAIC, Inc. uses internal revenue growth percentage as an indicator of how
    successful it is at growing its base business and how successful it is at 
    growing the revenues of the businesses that it acquires.  The integration 
    of acquired businesses allows current management to leverage business 
    development capabilities, drive internal resource collaboration, utilize
    access to markets and qualifications, and refine strategies to realize 
    synergies, which benefits both acquired and existing businesses.  As a 
    result, the performance of the combined enterprise post-acquisition is an 
    important measurement.  In addition, as a means of rewarding the 
    successful integration and growth of acquired businesses, and not 
    acquisitions themselves, incentive compensation for executives and the 
    broader employee population is based, in part, on achievement of revenue 
    targets linked to internal revenue growth. 
    
    The limitation of this non-GAAP financial measure as compared to the most
    directly comparable GAAP financial measure is that internal revenue growth
    percentage is one of two components of the total revenue growth 
    percentage, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
    The company addresses this limitation by presenting the total revenue 
    growth percentage next to or near disclosures of internal revenue growth 
    percentage.  This financial measure is not meant to be considered in 
    isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be 
    read only in conjunction with SAIC, Inc.'s consolidated financial 
    statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The method that the company 
    uses to calculate internal revenue growth percentage is not necessarily 
    comparable to similarly titled financial measures presented by other 
    companies.
    
    Internal revenue growth percentages for the three months and year ended 
    January 31, 2010 were calculated as follows:

                               SAIC, INC.
         Fiscal Year 2011 Guidance Excluding Impact of Scottish
           Power Contract Expiration (Non-GAAP Reconciliation)
                              (Unaudited)
    
    
    In this release, SAIC, Inc. refers to expectations of operating margin 
    improvement and growth in diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing
    operations excluding charges from the expiration of the Scottish Power IT outsourcing contract, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The company 
    calculates these measures by excluding those expected charges from
    operating income and diluted earnings per share from continuing 
    operations, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.  Those 
    reconciliations, which are provided below, have the impact of reducing 
    operating margin improvement and diluted earnings per share from 
    continuing operations growth.
    
    We use these non-GAAP measures to provide investors with visibility to how
    we expect our business to perform excluding the impact of the expected 
    charges arising from the expiration of the Scottish Power IT outsourcing
    contract.  The limitation of these non-GAAP measures as compared to the 
    most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is that we expect to 
    incur charges associated with this contract expiration which are not 
    reflected in these non-GAAP measures.  We address this limitation by
    presenting this reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP 
    measures.  These financial measures are not meant to be considered in 
    isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be
    read only in connection with our consolidated financial statements 
    prepared in accordance with GAAP.
