Booz Allen Hamilton Announces First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

Ralph W. Shrader, Booz Allen’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President, said “We continue to win major contract awards across all markets in our government business, ably serving our federal clients in their core missions, despite the generally challenging conditions in that sector, and we’ve expanded our business base in commercial and international markets. Our recent wins include large new and recompete contract awards with the US Army, Navy, and Missile Defense Command, the Departments of Energy, Justice, Labor, Health & Human Services, and the Federal Reserve, as well as major commercial financial institutions and health care providers. We’ve also been proactive and diligent in managing our cost base which has enabled us to continue to deliver on bottom-line commitments.

“The special dividend declared Monday by our Board returns value to our stockholders, and is evidence of our Board’s and management’s confidence in the future of our Company. We believe it is a prudent use of capital at this time and we have been able to complete the refinancing at attractive rates due to our strong track record and favorable debt markets; at the same time, we believe the stock market has been undervaluing our Company’s stock,” Shrader said. “After completing this transaction, we will maintain significant flexibility as a result of cash on hand and our new $500 million revolving credit facility. This flexibility will allow us to weather business uncertainties and to pursue an opportunistic acquisition strategy in this period of potential industry consolidation.

“Looking forward, we believe that the investments we are making in areas such as cyber, cloud, health, engineering services, enterprise effectiveness and efficiency, commercial, and international businesses will position us well for future growth,” Shrader said.

Financial Review

Booz Allen’s 1 percent decrease in revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared with the prior year period was primarily the result of a decrease in revenue attributable to billable expenses, which negatively impacted revenue by 1 percent, and a lower rate of indirect expenses under cost reimbursable contracts, which also negatively impacted revenue by 1 percent. The negative impact on revenue attributable to these two factors was partially offset by continued modest growth in consulting staff labor. The lower rate of indirect expenses is primarily attributable to the cost reduction actions the company implemented in early 2012.
