* Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted Diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information provided in accordance with GAAP. See Selected Financial Data and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release for more information.

The tables in Selected Financial Data and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release provide all appropriate reconciliations from adjusted results to GAAP.

Revenue for the quarter was $1.14 billion, down 3% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, and up 3% compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2021. The year-over-year decline in revenue was due to the one-time $60 million asset sale related to the NASA Agency Consolidated End-User Services (NASA ACES) program closeout that we recognized in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 and the COVID-19 impact of approximately $18 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. Excluding the impacts of the asset sale and the COVID-19 pandemic, revenue for the quarter grew 4% year-over-year.

Income before taxes for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $19 million, which was down 49% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2020. Operating margin decreased from 3.2% to 1.7% year-over-year. Net income was $16 million, or $0.10 per diluted share.

Adjusted net income was $86 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, down 2% year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA was $179 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, down 9% compared to adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020. The as-expected year-over-year decrease in profitability was primarily due to lower asset intensity, an increased mix of cost-reimbursable programs and a $5 million COVID-19 impact. Adjusted diluted EPS for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $0.53, down 2% compared to adjusted diluted EPS for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Segment operating results (unaudited)

For the fiscal quarter ended October 2, 2020, Defense and Intelligence segment revenue of $796 million increased by 2% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, primarily due to new business wins and growth on existing programs. Civilian and Health Care segment revenue of $346 million decreased by 12% compared to the segment's revenue from the comparable period of the prior year due to the one-time $60 million asset sale related to the NASA ACES program closeout that we recognized in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Defense and Intelligence adjusted segment profit margin for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 decreased to 13.1% from 14.9% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020. Civilian and Health Care adjusted segment profit margin for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 improved to 11.3% from 10.4% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Cash management and capital deployment

Perspecta generated $164 million of net cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. Quarterly adjusted free cash flow was $134 million, or 156% of adjusted net income. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, Perspecta used $26 million to make debt repayments and returned $11 million to shareholders in the form of its regular quarterly cash dividend program.

At quarter end, Perspecta had $216 million in cash and cash equivalents, $750 million of undrawn capacity in its revolving credit facility, and $2.5 billion in total debt, including $202 million in finance lease obligations. On November 9, 2020, the Perspecta Board of Directors declared that Perspecta will pay a cash dividend of $0.07 per share on January 15, 2020 to Perspecta shareholders of record at the close of business on November 24, 2020.

Contract awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $1.8 billion in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.6x. Included in the quarterly bookings were several particularly important single-award prime contracts:

  • Received multiple awards on classified systems engineering and integration programs in our Defense and Intelligence segment: Perspecta will provide support to U.S. government customers' missions through the delivery of high-end systems engineering and integration, data analytics, cybersecurity, cloud/IT services and software development. The total contract value of these awards is $519 million.

  • Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Open, Programmable, Secure 5G (OPS-5G) program: Perspecta Labs received two awards on DARPA's OPS-5G program for work to improve security of 5G networks. Perspecta Labs' solution implements a zero-trust, distributed security architecture that operates across the entire scale of Internet of Things and network devices, with emphasis on reducing the burden of remote attestation and cryptographic computation on resource-constrained endpoints. Perspecta Labs' solution will also leverage in-line programmable network elements and virtualized network functions to enable real-time, distributed defense against cyberattacks through the programmable mitigation of distributed denial of service attacks, real-time response and restoration and proactive deception-based defenses. The awards, which represent new work for the company, have a combined total ceiling value of $25 million if all options are exercised.

  • California State Teachers Retirement System Data Center hosting and migration services contract: Perspecta will use agile teams to migrate critical financial and benefits applications to a cloud-based solution. Perspecta will maintain the hosted solution delivering cloud operations, security, disaster recovery, information technology service management and program management services. The award, which represents new work for the company, has a total contract value of $43 million if all options are exercised.

Perspecta's backlog of signed business orders at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $13.9 billion; funded backlog at the end of the second quarter was $1.8 billion.

Forward guidance

The table below provides fiscal year 2021 guidance ranges for revenue, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted diluted EPS, and adjusted free cash flow conversion (as a percentage of adjusted net income). The table below provides information about the estimated financial impact of the network component of the existing U.S. Navy Next Generation Enterprise Network contract (NGEN SMIT), for which we are under contract through December 31, 2020. We anticipate a sole source six- to nine-month extension from the U.S. Navy on this contract. All forward-looking non-GAAP measures exclude estimates for amortization of intangible assets; stock-based compensation expenses; restructuring, separation, transaction and integration-related costs; mark-to-market changes associated with pension and other post-retirement benefit plans; and other non-recurring items. Perspecta is unable to provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the overall high variability and low visibility of most of the excluded items. Material changes to any one of these items could have a significant effect on future GAAP results.

John Kavanaugh, chief financial officer of Perspecta, commented, "We are pleased with the solid performance we delivered in the first half of FY2021. We continue to demonstrate our ability to execute and deliver on our commitments and, as a result, we are raising guidance for the fiscal year."

The fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 marked the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, and the pandemic has continued through the first quarter of fiscal year 2021. Due to the mission-critical nature of the majority of our business, substantially all of the services we provide to our government customers have been considered essential services, which has allowed them to continue, and the company has maintained its workforce at near full capacity. For the fiscal quarter ended October 2, 2020, the overall impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our results of operations was approximately $18 million lower revenue, $5 million lower adjusted EBITDA and a year-to-date liquidity benefit of $40 million due to a deferral of payroll tax payments afforded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. We continue to assess further possible implications to our business, supply chain and customers, and to take actions in an effort to mitigate adverse consequences. Our fiscal year 2021 guidance above accounts for a potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic of approximately $75 million in revenue and $20 million in adjusted EBITDA.

Selected Financial Data and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following tables present selected financial data, including the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Perspecta management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful additional information to investors regarding Perspecta's results of operations as they provide another measure of Perspecta's profitability and ability to service its debt and are considered important to financial analysts covering Perspecta's industry.

These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income from operations, net income, diluted EPS or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Perspecta's non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently than similarly named measures reported by other companies. In addition, using non-GAAP measures may have limited value as they exclude certain items that may have a material impact on reported financial results and cash flows. When analyzing Perspecta's performance, it is important to evaluate each adjustment in the reconciliation tables and use adjusted measures in addition to, and not as an alternative to, GAAP measures.

Notes:

(a)

Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA to revenue for the fiscal quarters ended October 2, 2020 and September 30, 2019.

(b)

Excludes the impact of NGEN SMIT.
