MAXIMUS Reports Financial Results For First Quarter Of Fiscal 2013

MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Key highlights include:

  • Revenue grew 19% to $286.3 million for the first quarter compared to $239.6 million reported for the same period last year, driven by the PSI acquisition, growth on existing contracts, and new work.
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 24% to $0.63 for the first quarter compared to $0.51 reported for the same period last year.
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $167.1 million at December 31, 2012.
  • Year-to-date new signed contract awards totaled $178 million at December 31, 2012.

Revenue for the fiscal 2013 first quarter increased 19% (19% on a constant currency basis) to $286.3 million versus $239.6 million reported for the same period last year. Revenue increases were driven by the acquisition of PSI in April 2012, growth on existing contracts, and new work. First quarter organic revenue increased 5% compared to the same period last year.

First quarter income from continuing operations, net of taxes, totaled $21.8 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, and included approximately $0.01 of net legal, settlement and acquisition-related expenses. Excluding these costs, first quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 24% to $0.63 compared to $0.51 reported for the same period last year. A reconciliation to this non-GAAP measure is included in the accompanying financial schedules.

First quarter 2013 earnings were better than expected, driven principally by accretive, transaction-based work in the Health Services Segment, primarily in the Company’s Federal Medicare appeals business. The Human Services Segment also benefitted from a temporary uplift in a domestic workforce services program.

“With strong performances from both our Health and Human Services Segments, MAXIMUS has set a solid platform for fiscal 2013. During the quarter, we experienced strong volumes from our Federal Medicare appeals business and we also made steady progress in winning new work in the emerging health insurance exchange market. Internationally, we see future opportunities that dovetail nicely with our core capabilities as governments evaluate program affordability and seek solutions to control costs and improve their benefit programs,” commented Richard A. Montoni, Chief Executive Officer of MAXIMUS.
