Q3 Revenue Increase of 13.1 percent to $1.66 billion, and Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses1 Growth of 12.2 percent

Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.92 and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share1 of $0.72

22.7 percent Increase in Total Backlog to $20.5 billion; and Book-to-Bill of 0.45x

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation (BAH), the parent company of management and technology consulting and engineering services firm Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., today announced preliminary results for the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

In the quarter, the Company continued very strong performance for the fiscal year, resulting in the raising of full-year guidance for Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share1 to between $2.65 and $2.75, the second consecutive quarterly increase in bottom line guidance for the fiscal year. The Company also raised guidance for Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue1 to 10 to 10.5 percent, narrowed the Revenue guidance to 7 to 8 percent and reported continued headcount growth.

“Our third quarter results put us on track for another successful year, with significant increases in earnings driven by organic revenue growth and excellent contract-level performance,” said Horacio Rozanski, president and chief executive officer. “Booz Allen is operating at the intersection of consulting, technology and mission, which allows us to create value for clients and deliver on the revenue, profit margin, and capital deployment goals outlined in our Investment Thesis.”

The Company reported third quarter Revenue growth of 13.1 percent, and a 12.2 percent increase in Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses.1 The strong top line growth and a lower corporate tax rate were among the contributors to a 76.2 percent increase in Net Income to $132.0 million and a 36.6 percent increase in Adjusted Net Income1 to $103.0 million. The Company also reported a 23.8 percent increase in Adjusted EBITDA1 to $179.7 million, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue1 was 10.8 percent. Diluted EPS for the quarter was $0.92, up $0.41 or 80.4 percent, and Adjusted Diluted EPS1 for the quarter was $0.72, up $0.21 or 41.2 percent. Adjusted Net Income1 and Adjusted Diluted EPS1 each exclude the effect of a $29.0 million tax benefit the Company realized in its third quarter of fiscal 2019 from the approval by the Internal Revenue Service of a tax accounting method change.

Total backlog increased by 22.7 percent over the prior year period to $20.5 billion, and the Book-to-Bill ratio for the third quarter was 0.45x. As of December 31, 2018, headcount was more than 1,050 higher than the prior year, and increased by nearly 460 since the end of the prior quarter.

Reflecting strong performance, the Company declared a $0.04 cent increase in its quarterly dividend, to $0.23 per share, which is payable on February 28, 2019, to stockholders of record on February 14, 2019.

Financial Summary

All comparisons are to the prior year period, as restated as a result of the adoption of two accounting standards, ASC 606 and ASU 2017-07, that were both effective April 1, 2018. A description of key drivers can be found in the Company’s Earnings Call Presentation for the third quarter posted on investors.boozallen.com.

Financial Outlook

For our fiscal 2019, we are updating guidance on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue1 and Adjusted Diluted EPS1 issued on October 29, 2018:

  • Revenue: Growth in the 7 to 8 percent range
  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue: 1 10 to 10.5 percent
  • Adjusted Diluted EPS: 1 $2.65 - $2.75

This Adjusted Diluted EPS1 estimate is based on fiscal 2019 estimated average diluted shares outstanding in the range of 141 million to 144 million shares, and assumes an effective tax rate in the range of 24 percent to 26 percent, which excludes any re-measurements of our deferred taxes related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, including benefits we realized during our third quarter of fiscal 2019 from the approval by the Internal Revenue Service of a tax accounting method change.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

“Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses” represents revenue less billable expenses. Booz Allen uses Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses because it provides management useful information about the Company's operating performance by excluding the impact of costs that are not indicative of the level of productivity of its consulting staff headcount and its overall direct labor, which management believes provides useful information to its investors about its core operations.

“Adjusted Operating Income” represents Operating Income before: (i) adjustments related to the amortization of intangible assets resulting from the acquisition of our Company by The Carlyle Group (the “Carlyle Acquisition”), and (ii) transaction costs, fees, losses, and expenses, including fees associated with debt prepayments. Booz Allen prepares Adjusted Operating Income to eliminate the impact of items it does not consider indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their inherent unusual, extraordinary or non-recurring nature or because they result from an event of a similar nature.

“Adjusted EBITDA” represents net income before income taxes, net interest and other expense and depreciation and amortization before certain other items, including transaction costs, fees, losses, and expenses, including fees associated with debt prepayments. “Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue” is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. "Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses" is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses. Booz Allen prepares Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses to eliminate the impact of items it does not consider indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their inherent unusual, extraordinary or non-recurring nature or because they result from an event of a similar nature.

“Adjusted Net Income” represents net income before: (i) adjustments related to the amortization of intangible assets resulting from the Carlyle Acquisition, (ii) transaction costs, fees, losses, and expenses, including fees associated with debt prepayments, (iii) amortization or write-off of debt issuance costs and write-off of original issue discount, (iv) release of income tax reserves, and (v) re-measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “2017 Tax Act”) in each case net of the tax effect where appropriate calculated using an assumed effective tax rate. Booz Allen prepares Adjusted Net Income to eliminate the impact of items, net of tax, it does not consider indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their inherent unusual, extraordinary or non-recurring nature or because they result from an event of a similar nature. We view net income excluding the impact of the re-measurement of the Company's deferred tax assets and liabilities as a result of the 2017 Tax Act as an important indicator of performance consistent with the manner in which management measures and forecasts the Company's performance and the way in which management is incentivized to perform.

“Adjusted Diluted EPS” represents diluted EPS calculated using Adjusted Net Income as opposed to Net Income. Additionally, Adjusted Diluted EPS does not contemplate any adjustments to net income as required under the two-class method of calculating EPS as required in accordance with GAAP.

“Free Cash Flow” represents the net cash generated from operating activities less the impact of purchases of property and equipment.

“Net Debt Leverage Ratio” represents leverage expressed as a fraction: (i) total debt (defined as current and long-term debt) minus cash, divided by (ii) Adjusted EBITDA for the prior twelve month period.

Booz Allen utilizes and discusses in this release Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS because management uses these measures for business planning purposes, including managing its business against internal projected results of operations and measuring its performance. Management views Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS as measures of the core operating business, which exclude the impact of the items detailed in the supplemental exhibits, as these items are generally not operational in nature. These supplemental performance measures also provide another basis for comparing period to period results by excluding potential differences caused by non-operational and unusual or non-recurring items. Management also utilizes Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses because it provides management useful information about the Company's operating performance by excluding the impact of costs that are not indicative of the level of productivity of its consulting staff headcount and its overall direct labor, which management believes provides useful information to its investors about its core operations. Booz Allen also utilizes and discusses Free Cash Flow in this release because management uses this measure for business planning purposes, measuring the cash generating ability of the operating business and measuring liquidity generally. Booz Allen presents these supplemental measures because it believes that these measures provide investors and securities analysts with important supplemental information with which to evaluate Booz Allen’s performance, long term earnings potential, or liquidity, as applicable, and to enable them to assess Booz Allen’s performance on the same basis as management. These supplemental performance measurements may vary from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies in Booz Allen’s industry. Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Free Cash Flow are not recognized measurements under GAAP and when analyzing Booz Allen’s performance or liquidity, as applicable, investors should (i) evaluate each adjustment in our reconciliation of revenue to Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, operating income to Adjusted Operating Income, net income to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, and net cash provided by operating activities to Free Cash Flow, (ii) use Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS in addition to, and not as an alternative to revenue, operating income, net income or diluted EPS as measures of operating results, each as defined under GAAP, and (iii) use Free Cash Flow, in addition to, and not as an alternative to, net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, each as defined under GAAP. Exhibit 4 includes a reconciliation of Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Free Cash Flow to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

With respect to our expectations under “Financial Outlook” above, a reconciliation of Adjusted Diluted EPS guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to our inability to predict our stock price, equity grants and dividend declarations during the course of fiscal 2019. Projecting future stock price, equity grants and dividends to be declared would be necessary to accurately calculate the difference between Adjusted Diluted EPS and GAAP EPS as a result of the effects of the two-class method and related possible dilution used in the calculation of EPS. Consequently, any attempt to disclose such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that could be confusing or misleading to investors. We expect the variability of the above charges to have an unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

For the same reason, a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to our inability to predict specific quantifications of the amounts that would be required to reconcile such measures.

In addition, management may discuss its target for net debt leverage ratio from time to time. A reconciliation of net debt leverage ratio to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to our inability to predict specific quantifications of the amounts that would be required to reconcile such measures. Consequently, any attempt to disclose such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that could be confusing or misleading to investors.
