CENTREVILLE, Va., Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Parsons Corporation (PSN) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

CEO Commentary

"We reported strong second quarter results in both our Federal Solutions and Critical Infrastructure markets," said Chuck Harrington, Chairman, CEO and President of Parsons Corporation. "Our margin expansion continues and our ability to win new business and grow existing contracts is enabling us to build backlog and drive top-line growth in high priority markets. Our focus on cyber, intelligence, space and intelligent transportation markets and growing our artificial intelligence, autonomous systems (including hypersonics), cloud computing and IoT technologies are paying off with contract wins and award fees. The strategic acquisition of QRC enhances our existing products portfolio, expands our presence in the important U.S. special operations and intelligence communities, and improves our revenue growth and margin profile. Our robust balance sheet ideally positions us for continued investment in our strategic initiatives."

Second Quarter 2019 Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2019 increased $89 million, or 10%, from the prior year period driven by acquisitions and organic growth. Total revenue for the second quarter of 2018 included $55 million of revenue as a result of a non-recurring legal matter decided in the Company's favor. Operating income decreased to ($9) million in the second quarter of 2019 primarily due to $43 million in IPO-related long-term incentive compensation expenses, and $21 million of acquisition-related intangible amortization expenses. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) attributable to Parsons decreased 76% to $0.44 due to the same factors as noted above, additional shares issued in the Company's IPO, and $132 million of income recorded in the second quarter of 2018 related to the resolution of the aforementioned non-recurring legal mater, offset by an income tax benefit associated with the establishment of a $56 million deferred tax asset resulting from Parsons conversion from an S-Corporation to a C-Corporation in the second quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 was $76 million, a 45% increase over the prior year period and Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 7.7%, a 190 basis point improvement from the second quarter of 2018. The Company's Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin increased primarily as a result of revenue growth in its Federal Solutions segment and higher margins in its Critical Infrastructure segment, respectively.  

Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parsons for the second quarter of 2019 was $76 million, a 50% increase over the prior year period. This increase was primarily driven by the same factor as described above. Adjusted EPS was $0.43, compared to $0.40 in the second quarter of 2018.

Second quarter 2019 revenue increased $137 million, or 40%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was driven by $115 million from the Polaris Alpha and OGSystems acquisitions and organic growth of 6.4%. 

Federal Solutions Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests and Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parsons Corporation for the second quarter of 2019 both increased by $2 million, or 5%, compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin for both metrics decreased to 7.5%, or by 250 basis points from the second quarter of 2018. The decreases in Adjusted EBITDA margin were primarily driven by a greater allocation of corporate indirect general and administrative costs to the Company's Federal Solutions segment in-line with its growing share of the overall business.

Second quarter 2019 revenue decreased $48 million, or 9%, compared to the prior year period. The decrease was due to $55 million of revenue recorded in the second quarter of 2018 as a result of the aforementioned non-recurring legal matter decided in the Company's favor. Excluding the legal matter, revenue increased by 1.2%.

Critical Infrastructure Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for the second quarter of 2019 increased  $22 million, or 117%, compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin including noncontrolling interests increased to 7.9%, or by 460 basis points from the second quarter of 2018. The increases were primarily driven by higher equity in earnings of unconsolidated joint ventures and a reduction in allocation of corporate indirect general and administrative expenses to the Company's Critical Infrastructure segment. Second quarter 2019 Adjusted EBITDA includes $3.3 million of additional equity in earnings that the Company expected to recognize in the second-half of 2019.

Critical Infrastructure Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Parsons Corporation for the second quarter of 2019 increased $24 million, or 139%, compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin attributable to Parsons increased to 7.9%, or by 490 basis points from the second quarter of 2018. The increases were driven by the same factors as noted above.

Second Quarter 2019 Key Performance Indicators

The Company's strong book-to-bill ratio and backlog increase positions it for continued top-line growth. Second quarter operating cash flow was less than anticipated, but the Company expects solid cash flow from operations for the full year, in-line with, or above, underlying earnings. The Company's operating cash flow and significant borrowing capacity will enable ongoing investments in its growth strategy.

  • Book-to-bill ratio: 1.0x on net bookings of $978 million. Trailing 12-month 1.2x on net bookings of $4.7 billion.
  • Total backlog: $8.5 billion, a 10% increase over the second quarter of 2018.
  • Cash flow provided by operating activities: $12 million compared to $57 million in the second quarter of 2018.
  • Debt: total and net debt were $249 million and $46 million, respectively. Following the acquisition of QRC, as of June 30, 2019, pro forma debt was approximately $389 million and pro forma net debt was approximately $264 million, positioning the Company for continued investment in the implementation of its strategy. The Company defines net debt as total debt less cash and cash equivalents.

Second Quarter 2019 Significant Contract Wins

Parsons continues to win key awards across both its Federal Solutions and Critical Infrastructure segments. The Company's strong customer relationships, rigorous capture processes, and investments in technology and people have led to greater success in winning new contracts and expanding existing contracts.

  • Awarded $147 million of additional scope on our Ballistic Missile Defense System contracts with the Missile Defense Agency in areas including cyber, command and control, foreign military sales and targets and countermeasures.
  • Awarded more than $140 million of new contracts for cybersecurity, software development, data analytics, systems engineering and integration, and mission system survivability by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Army Cyber, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

  • Awarded the program management contract for the California Delta Water Conveyance Modernization Project, a multi-billion dollar water transfer project to improve sustainability and reliability of the water supply for human and environmental uses from the Sacramento River.

  • Selected as one of multiple awardees on the $7.5 billion ceiling DISA Systems Engineering, Technology and Innovation contract, expanding the Company's robust IDIQ and OTA portfolio.

Recent Developments

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The tables under "Parsons Corporation Inc. Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" present Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization ("EBITDA"), Adjusted EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measure. These financial measures are calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("Non-GAAP Measures"). Parsons has provided these Non-GAAP Measures to adjust for, among other things, the impact of amortization expenses related to our acquisitions of Williams Electric, Polaris Alpha and  OGSystems, initial public offering transaction-related expenses, costs associated with a loss or gain on the disposal or sale of property, plant and equipment, restructuring and related expenses, costs associated with mergers and acquisitions, software implementation costs, legal and settlement costs, and other costs considered to non-operational in nature . These items have been Adjusted because they are not considered core to the Company's business or otherwise not considered operational or because these charges are non-cash or non-recurring. The Company presents these Non-GAAP Measures because management believes that they are meaningful to understanding Parsons's performance during the periods presented and the Company's ongoing business. Non-GAAP Measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and therefore are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled metrics or the financial results of other companies. These Non-GAAP Measures should be considered a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
