Revenues for the quarter increased $348 million, or 29%, compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to the acquisition of Engility. Excluding acquired revenues, compared to the prior year quarter, revenues decreased by 1.2% due to the completion of a technology contract supporting state and local customers and acquisition related dis-synergies.

Revenues for the fiscal year increased $1,720 million compared to the prior year, primarily due to the acquisition of Engility. Adjusting for the impact of acquired revenues, revenues contracted 1.4% due to the completion of certain contracts, including contracts with the U.S. Marine Corps, and the effect of acquisition related dis-synergies. These decreases were partially offset by net increases in program volume.

Operating income as a percentage of revenues increased to 5.7% for the three months ended January 31, 2020 as compared to 0.6% in the comparable prior year period primarily due to lower acquisition and integration costs , strong program execution and cost synergies, partially offset by increased intangible asset amortization.

Operating income for the fiscal year increased $150 million to 5.8% of revenues, up from 4.7% of revenues in the prior fiscal year. The increase in operating income was primarily due to lower acquisition and integration costs, a more profitable cost mix through higher labor content and cost synergies, partially offset by increased intangible asset amortization.

Net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders for the quarter increased $68 million from the comparable prior year period primarily as the result of higher operating income, partially offset by higher interest expense.

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the fiscal year increased $89 million from the prior fiscal year primarily due to higher operating income, partially offset by higher interest expense.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) as a percentage of revenues for the quarter was 8.7%, compared to 8.0% for the prior year quarter due to cost synergies and higher net profit write-ups.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) as a percentage of revenues for the fiscal year increased to 8.4% of revenues, compared to 7.6% in the prior fiscal year. The increase was driven by a more profitable cost mix, cost synergies related to the acquisition and higher net profit write-ups.

Diluted earnings per share was $1.01 and adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) was $1.58 for the quarter. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the quarter was 58.5 million shares. Diluted earnings per share was $3.83 and adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) was $5.66 for the year. The negative impact from acquisition and integrations costs included within diluted earnings per share was $0.24 and $0.54 for the quarter and year, respectively. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the year was 59.0 million shares.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment

Total cash flows provided by operating activities for the fourth quarter were $69 million. The $47 million increase in cash provided by operating activities compared to the prior year period was primarily due to lower payments for acquisition and integration costs, cash provided from the operating activities of Engility, and delayed collections from the U.S. federal government partial shutdown that occurred in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. These increases were partially offset by one extra payroll week accrued for Engility in the prior year and timing of collections on certain programs.

Total cash flows provided by operating activities for the year were $458 million, an increase from the prior year, primarily due to cash provided from the operating activities of Engility, customer collections recouped from the U.S. federal government partial shutdown that occurred in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, and lower payments for acquisition and integration costs. These increases were partially offset by higher interest payments in the current year as a result of additional borrowings related to the acquisition of Engility near the end of fiscal 2019.

During the quarter SAIC deployed $38 million of capital, consisting of $22 million in cash dividends and $16 million of term loan repayment. There were no plan share repurchases in the fourth quarter. For the year, cash dividends were $87 million, plan share repurchases totaled $177 million (approximately 2.2 million shares) and we made $274 million of debt repayments. Share repurchases since the inception of the program in 2013 were $716 million (approximately 11.8 million shares).

(1)Non-GAAP measure, see Schedule 5 for information about this measure.

Liquidity and Capital Structure

In light of the emergence of the COVID-19 virus and the challenges it has presented to the global community, SAIC believes it is prudent to provide post-quarter clarity and transparency on the company’s liquidity and capital structure. At the completion of the acquisition of Unisys Federal on March 13, 2020, the company had approximately $2.9 billion of long term debt. SAIC has ample liquidity and a strong capital structure to more than adequately service this debt in the context of potential business impacts from the COVID-19 virus. At the close of the Unisys Federal acquisition, SAIC had $155 million of cash on hand, as well as full access to our $400 million committed revolving credit facility. SAIC is a well-capitalized company that primarily serves the U.S. Federal Government, providing business stability through long term contracts, a flexible cost structure, and a customer whose obligations to pay invoices are backed by full faith and credit of the US Government.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

Subsequent to fiscal year-end, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.37 per share of the Company’s common stock payable on April 24, 2020 to stockholders of record on April 9, 2020. 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.

Backlog and Contract Awards

Net bookings for the quarter were approximately $2.4 billion, which reflects a book-to-bill ratio of approximately 1.5. Net bookings for the year were approximately $7.9 billion, which reflects a book-to-bill ratio of approximately 1.2. SAIC’s estimated backlog of signed business orders at the end of fiscal 2020 was approximately $15.3 billion of which $2.6 billion was funded.

SAIC was awarded the following contracts during the quarter:

U.S. Intelligence Community: SAIC was awarded a total of $1.1 billion in space and national security contracts to support various U.S. Department of Defense and intelligence activities.

As part of this contract, SAIC will provide animal care, training, and maintenance of marine mammals participating in the Navy Marine Mammal Program.

Backlog represents the estimated amount of future revenues to be recognized under negotiated contracts and task orders as work is performed and excludes contract awards which have been protested by competitors until the protest is resolved in our favor. SAIC segregates 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 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 of contracts which may cover multiple future years under which SAIC is obligated to perform, less revenues previously recognized on these contracts. Negotiated unfunded backlog represents the estimated future revenues to be earned from negotiated contracts for which funding has not been appropriated or authorized, and unexercised priced contract options. Negotiated unfunded backlog does not include any estimate of future potential task orders expected to be awarded under indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ), U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) schedules or other master agreement contract vehicles.
