MCLEAN, Va., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAIC, Inc. (NYSE:SAI), a scientific, engineering, and technology applications company, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013, which ended January 31, 2013.
"During the fourth quarter, our revenue and operating income both declined from adjusted prior year levels," said John P. Jumper, chairman and chief executive officer. "Nevertheless, we made a number of significant investments towards the future separation of the company, and had a few unexpected items that adversely impacted our results. Our focus is on the long term. We are committed to improving our operating performance by sustaining focus on our customers and aggressively aligning our cost base. We remain on schedule for our planned separation later in the year and look to aggressively position both future companies for cost competitiveness by streamlining indirect management and support functions, reducing our real estate footprint, and driving other efficiencies."
"As announced today, our Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend and, in addition, a special dividend," added Jumper. "We consider this a demonstration of our continuing confidence in the strength of our financial base, our plan of balanced capital deployment, and our commitment to deliver shareholder value."
Revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 were $2.71 billion, compared to $2.47 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. Full fiscal year revenues were $11.17 billion, compared to $10.50 billion for fiscal year 2012. The fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2012 revenues reflected $358 million and $410 million, respectively, in revenue reductions from the CityTime loss provision. After removing the effect of these reductions, revenues declined $118 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 compared to the prior year quarter's adjusted revenues of $2.83 billion, but increased $266 million for the full fiscal year.
Operating income for the quarter was $145 million (5.3 percent of revenues). Operating loss for the prior year quarter of $114 million included the $308 million CityTime loss provision. The prior year quarter's operating income excluding the CityTime loss provision was $194 million (6.9 percent of revenues). The reduction in operating income, as adjusted, was primarily attributable to $23 million of expenses incurred in connection with the planned separation transaction and $14 million of loss provisions relating to certain legal matters. Full fiscal year operating income of $734 million (6.6 percent of revenues) was also adversely impacted by separation costs.
Income from continuing operations for the quarter was $186 million. Full fiscal year income from continuing operations was $523 million.
Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the quarter were $0.54. The diluted share count for the quarter was 335 million, up from 329 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fiscal year were $1.54.
Segment Operating Results
Defense Solutions revenues for the quarter were $1.12 billion. Excluding the prior year CityTime loss provision, revenues decreased $89 million, or 7 percent, from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. This decrease was attributable to reduced activity on a number of programs, including a systems integration and logistics program for tactical and mine resistant ambush protected vehicles, an infrastructure support service program for the Defense Information Systems Agency and a tactical vehicle integration program for the U.S. Army. These decreases were partially offset by increased revenues on a number of programs, including a program with the Defense Logistics Agency to provide supply chain management of military land and aircraft tires and a program to operate and maintain the enterprise network IT infrastructure for the U.S. Department of State.
Defense Solutions revenues for the fiscal year were $4.72 billion. Excluding the prior year CityTime loss provision, revenues increased by $117 million, or 3 percent, from fiscal year 2012. This growth was attributable to increased activity on a number of programs, including the ramp up of a program to operate and maintain the enterprise network IT infrastructure for the U.S. Department of State, the ramp up of a program with the Defense Logistics Agency to provide supply chain management of military land and aircraft tires, and a systems and software development program for the U.S. Army. These increases were partially offset by reduced revenues from various programs, including the U.S. Army Brigade Combat Team Modernization program, which was terminated during fiscal year 2012, a program to provide systems engineering and management support for the U.S. Navy and a systems integration and logistics program for tactical and mine resistant ambush protected vehicles.
Defense Solutions operating income for the quarter was 6.1 percent of revenues as compared to 7.6 percent of revenues excluding the CityTime loss provision (-25.4 percent on a GAAP basis) in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. The decrease in Defense Solutions operating income, as adjusted, was attributable to the ramp down of certain customer contracts having relatively higher profit levels and net unfavorable changes in contract estimates compared to a net favorable change in the prior year.
Defense Solutions operating income for the fiscal year was 7.5 percent of revenues as compared to 8.0 percent of revenues excluding the CityTime loss provision (-4.1 percent on a GAAP basis) in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. The decrease in Defense Solutions operating income, as adjusted, was attributable to a reduction in favorable changes in contract estimates and a prior year gain on the sale of assets.
Health, Energy and Civil Solutions
Health, Energy and Civil Solutions revenues for the quarter decreased 4 percent from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. Internal revenues decreased 10 percent due to declines in various federal civilian programs and reduced design-build volume related to energy plant construction projects. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in healthcare IT consulting services with commercial clients.
Health, Energy and Civil Solutions revenues for the fiscal year increased 2 percent from fiscal year 2012 primarily due to revenues acquired in connection with the acquisitions of maxIT Healthcare Holdings, Inc. and Vitalize Consulting Solutions, Inc. Internal revenues decreased 4 percent reflecting declines in various federal civilian programs and program completions with federal health information technology customers, particularly with U.S. Department of Defense military health system customers. These decreases were partially offset by increases in healthcare IT consulting services with commercial clients and increased design-build volume related to energy plant construction projects.
Health, Energy and Civil Solutions operating income for the quarter was 7.6 percent of revenues, down from 8.0 percent of revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 primarily due to increased intangible asset amortization expense and increased severance expense from cost reduction efforts.
Health, Energy and Civil Solutions operating income for the fiscal year was 8.0 percent of revenues, down from 9.0 percent of revenues in fiscal year 2012. The decline was due to a net unfavorable change in contract estimates primarily related to certain energy and construction projects compared to a net favorable change in the prior year, increased intangible asset amortization expense, increased severance expense, and a lease termination charge related to the consolidation of facilities. This decline was partially offset by a prior year loss provision related to a data privacy litigation matter and a reduction in research and development expense resulting from the advancement through the product lifecycle of new non-intrusive inspection system offerings.
Intelligence and Cybersecurity Solutions
Intelligence and Cybersecurity Solutions revenues for the quarter were relatively flat as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012.
Intelligence and Cybersecurity Solutions revenues for the fiscal year increased 3 percent, from fiscal year 2012. This increase was primarily due to increased activity on a number of programs including two airborne surveillance programs, a geospatial intelligence program, a new intelligence systems integration program for the U.S. Army, and a new intelligence analysis solutions program. These increases were partially offset by reduced activity on a processing, exploitation and dissemination program for the U.S. Army, a decline in sales of proprietary products, and an intelligence analysis contract that concluded in the current year.
Intelligence and Cybersecurity Solutions operating income for the quarter was 6.9 percent of revenues, down from 7.2 percent of revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, primarily due to intangible asset impairment charges recorded during the current year quarter.
Intelligence and Cybersecurity Solutions operating income for the fiscal year was 7.2 percent of revenues, down from 7.8 percent of revenues in fiscal year 2012 primarily as a result of a relative increase in the proportion of materials and subcontractor related revenues, which generally have lower profit margins than labor-related revenues, due to increased activity as a prime contractor on large system integration programs. Fiscal year 2013 operating income was also negatively impacted by reduced sales of higher-margin proprietary products, partially offset by lower intangible asset impairment charges, decreased intangible asset amortization expense and an increase in net favorable changes in contract estimates.
Corporate and Other
Corporate and Other segment operating loss during the quarter increased from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, primarily due to expenses incurred in connection with the planned separation transaction and loss provisions relating to certain legal matters.
Cash Generation and Capital Deployment
Cash flow provided by operations for fiscal year 2013 was $345 million, down from $762 million in fiscal year 2012, primarily due to the payment of the $500 million CityTime settlement.
During the quarter, the Company paid a cash dividend of $0.12 per share. The Company intends to continue paying dividends on a quarterly basis, although the declaration of any future dividend 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 January 31, 2013, the Company had $736 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1.3 billion in long-term debt.
New Business Awards
Net business bookings totaled $2.0 billion in the fourth quarter and $11.1 billion for the fiscal year, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.7 and 1.0 for the fourth quarter and fiscal year, respectively. Notable awards received during the quarter include:
U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic. The Company was awarded a prime contract to provide life-cycle command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance support services.

The cost-plus award-fee task order has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total contract value of $433 million, if all options are exercised.
The Company's backlog of signed business orders at the end of the fiscal year 2013 was $17.9 billion, of which $5.4 billion was funded, consistent with the end of fiscal year 2012. Negotiated unfunded backlog does not include any estimate of future task orders expected to be awarded under IDIQ, GSA Schedule or other master agreement contract vehicles.
The Company's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share payable on April 30, 2013 to stockholders of record on April 15, 2013.

The Company's outlook for fiscal year 2014, which began on February 1, 2013, is as follows:
This guidance is based on SAIC, Inc. operating for the full fiscal year as one company, yet includes substantial costs to prepare for the previously announced separation transaction. If the separation occurs during fiscal year 2014 as is currently contemplated, it is expected that guidance policies will be provided for each of the two separate companies at the time of the separation. Fiscal year 2014 guidance is based upon the recently approved U.S. Government fiscal year 2013 defense budget and an assumed flat spending level thereafter consistent with the Budget Control Act of 2011. In addition, fiscal year 2014 guidance excludes the impact of potential future acquisitions and other non-ordinary course items, other than identified costs related to the planned separation.
SAIC is a FORTUNE 500® scientific, engineering, and technology applications company that uses its deep domain knowledge to solve problems of vital importance to the nation and the world, in national security, energy and the environment, critical infrastructure, and health. The Company's approximately 40,000 employees serve customers in the U.S. Department of Defense, the intelligence community, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, other U.S. Government civil agencies and selected commercial markets.
