Booz Allen Hamilton Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

The Company authorized and declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.09 per share, payable on November 30, 2012, to stockholders of record on November 13, 2012.

Ralph W. Shrader, Booz Allen’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President, said, “We grew adjusted earnings and margins and generated significant cash flow this quarter, and we have delivered an impressive 68 percent total return to shareholders for the 12 months ending September 30, 2012. Our backlog is over $12 billion as of September 30, 2012, with a book-to-bill ratio of 2.6, demonstrating strong demand from our clients for our services, despite the generally challenging market conditions for government contractors. Our wins in the important end-of-government-fiscal year period spanned all major markets – civil, defense, and intelligence – and we continue to add new contracts from financial institutions and healthcare and energy companies in the commercial arena.

“Booz Allen is leaning forward and excited about the future. We have the free cash flow and resources to invest in growth areas of our business and selectively pursue strategically-attractive acquisitions, such as our recently announced definitive agreement to purchase the Defense Systems Engineering and Support division of ARINC to be paid with available cash on hand,” Dr. Shrader said. “This acquisition will add to our engineering capabilities and brings us scale and specialized expertise in C4ISR, prototyping, specialized software development, and analytics – all areas where we see growth potential and client demand, and that complement our existing capabilities.

“We will continue to guide our business on a steady course – managing with agility and precision, delivering excellent quality to our clients, aggressively going after our recompetes, and pursuing strategically-important new work. At the same time, we will build on our proven track record of strong cash generation and capital deployment, and effective management of our balance sheet to deliver high value to our shareholders,” Dr. Shrader said.
