National Security Solutions

National Security Solutions revenues for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 decreased $133 million, or 12 percent, compared to the prior year. The revenue contraction was attributable to contract activities tied to the drawdown of overseas U.S. military forces and by overall reductions in defense and U.S. Government spending resulting from sequestration and budget cuts.

National Security Solutions operating income margin for the first quarter was 8.2 percent, up from 6.6 percent in the prior year, with the increase primarily attributable to net favorable changes in contract estimates and an intangible asset impairment charge in the prior year period.

Health and Engineering

Health and Engineering revenues for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 decreased $141 million, or 27 percent, compared to the prior year. The revenue contraction reflects a decline in engineering services due to the completion of two energy design-build construction projects, lower sales volume in the non-intrusive inspection systems business due to timing of product shipments and lower sales volume in our federal and commercial health businesses.

Health and Engineering operating income margin for the first quarter was 6.6 percent, down from 6.7 percent in the prior year. Operating income margin in the first quarter was primarily impacted by lower revenues from engineering products which typically generate higher margins and an operating loss for the Plainfield biomass power plant due to production short falls. The prior year quarter included an unfavorable change in contract estimates related to the Plainfield design-build construction project. The first quarter of fiscal year 2015 included a reserve adjustment following a favorable ruling on a legal matter and a year over year decrease in amortization expense of intangible assets.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other segment operating loss was $13 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 compared to $30 million in the prior year. The first quarter loss included $1 million of separation transaction and restructuring expenses associated with the spin-off which was completed in fiscal year 2014. In the prior year, separation transaction and restructuring expenses totaled $14 million.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment

Cash flow used in operating activities of continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $8 million.

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, the Company entered into a $200 million accelerated stock repurchase program and the Company paid a cash dividend of $0.32 per share. The Company intends to continue paying dividends on a quarterly basis, although the declaration of any future dividends will be determined by the Company's Board of Directors each quarter and will depend on earnings, financial condition, capital requirements and other factors.

As of May 2, 2014, the Company had $183 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1.3 billion in long-term debt.

New Business Awards

New business bookings totaled $857 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.6.

Notable recent awards received include:

  • U.S. Air Force. The Company was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Air Force to provide research, development, testing and evaluation for homeland defense and security technical area tasks to the Department of Defense community of interest. The cost-plus-fixed-fee, firm-fixed-price, multiple award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options and a total value of approximately $900 million for all awardees, if all options are exercised.

  • Intelligence Community. The Company was awarded contracts valued at $101 million, if all options are exercised, by U.S. national security and intelligence clients. Though the specific nature of these contracts is classified, they all encompass mission-critical services that help to counter global threats and strengthen national security.

  • United States Special Operations Command. The Company was awarded a subcontract for the Combatant Craft Medium Mk-1 (CCM Mk1). The contract will include production of low observable systems, integration and testing of craft tactical computing systems, full life-cycle integrated logistics support and incremental development and upgrades. The total potential value of the subcontract award is approximately $87 million of the total program ceiling of $400 million won by the prime contractor, Oregon Iron Works.

  • U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. The Company was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery to provide psychological health support services to the Naval Center for Combat & Operational Stress Control. The single-award, cost-plus fixed-fee contract has a one-year base period of performance, two one-year options and a total contract value of approximately $15 million, if all options are exercised.

  • Department of Veterans Affairs. The Company was awarded a prime contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide systems integration support and services to the VA's Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy. The single-award, firm-fixed-price contract has a one-year base period of performance, two one-year options and a total contract value of approximately $12 million, if all options are exercised.

The Company's backlog of signed business orders at the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $8.84 billion, of which $3.11 billion was funded.  As compared to the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, total backlog decreased 6 percent and funded backlog increased 5 percent. Backlog does not include any estimate of future task orders expected to be awarded under IDIQ, GSA Schedule or other master agreement contract vehicles.

  • Revenues of $4.9 billion to $5.1 billion;

  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $2.35 to $2.55; and

LEIDOS HOLDINGS, INC.
UNAUDITED BACKLOG BY REPORTABLE SEGMENT
(in millions)

Backlog represents the estimated amount of future revenues to be recognized under negotiated contracts as work is performed and excludes contract awards which have been protested by competitors. Leidos Holdings, Inc. segregates its 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 on a quarterly or annual basis 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 on contracts, which may cover multiple future years, under which Leidos Holdings, Inc. is obligated to perform, less revenues previously recognized on these contracts. Negotiated unfunded backlog represents the estimated amounts of revenue to be earned in the future from (1) negotiated contracts for which funding has not been appropriated or otherwise authorized and (2) unexercised priced contract options. Negotiated unfunded backlog does not include any estimate of future potential task orders expected to be awarded under IDIQ, GSA Schedule or other master agreement contract vehicles.

LEIDOS HOLDINGS, INC.
UNAUDITED NON-GAAP DILUTED EARNINGS PER SHARE FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS
(in millions, except per share amounts)

In this release, Leidos Holdings, Inc. refers to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, which is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) and should not be considered a substitute for operating income or diluted earnings per share as determined in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations provides useful information to management and investors regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations as it provides another measure of the Company's profitability and is considered an important financial measure by management and investors. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with Leidos Holdings, Inc.'s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company considers non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, which may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies, to be defined as net income from continuing operations, adjusted to exclude the impact of the discrete events such as separation transaction expenses, restructuring expenses, write-downs, impairments and adjustments for uncertain tax positions.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share adjusts diluted earnings per share for the following discrete items:

  • Intangible asset impairment charges - This adjustment represents impairments of long-lived assets due to changes in actual performance against performance projected when the long lived assets were acquired.

  • Separation transaction and restructuring charges - This adjustment represents costs for strategic advisory services, legal and accounting services, lease termination and facility consolidation and severance costs associated with the Company's recently-completed spin-off of New SAIC and the headquarters relocation.

  • Impact of Plainfield - This adjustment represents the estimate-at-completion adjustments related to the Plainfield project prior to the Company's acquisition of the Plainfield plant in October 2013.

The non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations as of the dates presented was as follows:
