Factors to Note

Science Applications’ second-quarter fiscal 2022 results are likely to reflect key contract wins, driven by a strong product portfolio. The company’s capability to sustain its existing contracts along with the newly-awarded ones across the customer portfolio might have acted as a tailwind. These include the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command contract among other Army deals.

The acquisition of Halfaker and Associates may have resulted in incremental revenues in the quarter under review. This along with its free cash flow performance might have driven SAIC’s top and bottom-line growth. Last year’s acquisition of Unisys Federal is expected to continue aiding revenue growth in this quarter as well.

Strong demand for the company’s IT modernization services, which include advanced analytics, software and app modernization, and cloud migration, may have favored the performance in the quarter to be reported.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic continued to disrupt the company’s supply-chain portfolio. This might have weighed on the top line in the quarter under review.
