* Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information

provided in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide another

measure of Leidos' results of operations and financial condition, including its ability to comply with financial

covenants. See Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release for more information and a

reconciliation of our selected reported results to these non-GAAP measures.

Revenues for the quarter were $3.92 billion, up 9% compared to the third quarter of 2022. Revenues grew year-over-year due to increased demand across all customer segments, especially for digital modernization and medical examination solutions.

For the third quarter, Leidos had a net loss of $396 million, or $2.91 per diluted share, which reflected pre-tax, non-cash impairment and restructuring charges of $699 million primarily associated with the Security Enterprise Solutions (SES) reporting unit. Net income and diluted EPS were down 341% and 349% year-over-year, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was $451 million for the third quarter, up 21% year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 11.5% increased from 10.3% in the third quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP net income was $283 million for the third quarter, up 28% year-over-year, and non-GAAP diluted EPS for the quarter was $2.03, up 28% year-over-year. The primary drivers of increased profitability were improved business mix as well as increased volumes, higher incentive awards, and recovery of prior expenditures in the medical examination business.

Cash Flow Summary

In the third quarter, Leidos generated $795 million of net cash provided by operating activities and used $52 million in investing activities and $249 million in financing activities. Net cash provided by operating activities benefited from strong collections and working capital management, driven in part from U.S. Government customers accelerating payments at the end of their fiscal year. Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) for the quarter was 57, a 2-day improvement from the second quarter of 2023.

Investing activities consisted primarily of $50 million in property, equipment and software payments, which resulted in quarterly free cash flow of $745 million. Financing activities included repayment of $200 million of commercial paper and $50 million returned to shareholders as part of a regular quarterly cash dividend program. As of September 29, 2023, Leidos had $750 million in cash and cash equivalents and $4.7 billion of debt.

On October 27, 2023, the Leidos Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.38 per share, which represents an increase of 6% over the prior quarter's dividend amount. The dividend will be payable on December 29, 2023, to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 15, 2023.

Business Development

Net bookings totaled $7.9 billion in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 2.0. As a result, backlog at the end of the quarter was $38.0 billion, of which $9.0 billion was funded. Included in the quarterly bookings were several notable awards:

  • Common Hardware Systems 6th Generation (CHS-6). The U.S. Army Program Executive Office awarded Leidos a ten-year, firm-fixed price contract with a maximum value of $7.9 billion. The single-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract has a base period of performance of four years with two three-year options. Under the CHS-6 contract, Leidos will incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics to increase visibility into operations and provide a uniquely resilient rapid fulfillment model. Leidos will leverage current commercial technology and industry investments to help enhance mission readiness of complex IT hardware across its entire lifecycle. Leidos will also work to deploy a logistics platform to proactively manage supply chain and cybersecurity risks while minimizing total lifecycle costs. Equipment and services procured under the terms of this contract will be used to support a unified network for Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) and Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
  • Homeland Enterprise Information Technology Secure Services and Support (HEITS). Under a $918 million, seven-year contract, Leidos will continue to support and enhance Department of Homeland Security (DHS) networks. While supporting cross-agency intelligence sharing and secure collaboration for federal and civilian agencies, Leidos will deliver leading-edge capabilities, including quantum resistant cryptography, AI operations, robotic process automation and classified cloud service integration.
  • Army Missile and Space Cyber Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA). The U.S. Army Program Executive Office (PEO) Missiles and Space (M&S) awarded Leidos a $125 million, five-year task order to design, develop, integrate, test, and deliver high-fidelity prototype virtualizations of critical computing hardware and software components for PEO M&S weapon systems. This work will enhance the mission effectiveness of the warfighter in a contested CEMA environment and will include weapon system critical computing hardware and software emulations, CEMA detection algorithms, tools, models, interfaces, studies, and analysis products.

For information regarding adjusted EBITDA margin and non-GAAP diluted EPS, see the related explanations and reconciliations to GAAP measures included elsewhere in this release.

Leidos does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA margins or non-GAAP diluted EPS to net income due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation. Because certain deductions for non-GAAP exclusions used to calculate projected net income may vary significantly based on actual events, Leidos is not able to forecast on a GAAP basis with reasonable certainty all deductions needed in order to provide a GAAP calculation of projected net income at this time. The amounts of these deductions may be material and, therefore, could result in projected net income and diluted EPS being materially less than what may be implied by projected adjusted EBITDA margins and non-GAAP diluted EPS.

Defense Solutions

Defense Solutions revenues of $2.22 billion increased by 7% compared to the prior year quarter. Revenue growth was primarily in the areas of digital modernization, including the Navy Next Generation Enterprise Network Recompete (NGEN-R) Service Management, Integration and Transport (SMIT) contract, and offensive and defensive hypersonics programs as well as the acquisition of Cobham Special Missions that was completed on October 30, 2022. For the quarter Defense Solutions operating income margin remained unchanged from 6.6% in the prior year quarter, and non-GAAP operating income margin increased to 8.4% from 8.1% in the prior year quarter. The increase in segment profitability was attributable to milestone achievements and cost control.

Civil

Civil revenues of $924 million increased by 6% compared to the prior year quarter. The primary drivers of revenue growth were higher volumes within the security products portfolio, infrastructure spending by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and increased demand for engineering support to commercial energy companies. Civil operating income margin for the quarter was (65.7)%, compared to 9.0% in the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of non-cash impairment and restructuring charges of $688 million related to the SES reporting unit. Non-GAAP operating income margin was 10.4%, compared to 11.0% in the prior year quarter. The year-over-year segment profitability decreased as a result of the mix of security product sales.

Health

Health revenues of $776 million increased by 18% compared to the prior year quarter driven by higher levels of medical examinations and growth on the Social Security Administration (SSA) Information Technology Support Services Contract II (ITSSC II). Health operating income margin for the quarter was 19.6%, compared to 13.8% in the prior year quarter, and non-GAAP operating margin was 20.4%, compared to 15.0% in the prior year quarter. The increase in segment profitability was driven primarily by increased volumes, higher incentive awards, and recovery of prior expenditures in the medical examination business.

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

Backlog represents the estimated amount of future revenues to be recognized under negotiated contracts. Backlog value is based on management's estimates about volume of services, availability of customer funding and other factors, and excludes contracts that are under protest. Estimated backlog comprises both funded and negotiated unfunded backlog. Backlog estimates are subject to change and may be affected by several factors, including modifications of contracts, non-exercise of options and foreign currency movements.

Funded backlog for contracts with the U.S. government represents the value on contracts for which funding is appropriated less revenues previously recognized on these contracts. Funded backlog for contracts with non-U.S. government entities and commercial customers represents the estimated value on contracts, which may cover multiple future years, under which Leidos is obligated to perform, less revenue previously recognized on the contracts.

Negotiated unfunded backlog represents estimated amounts of revenue to be earned in the future from contracts for which funding has not been appropriated and unexercised priced contract options. Negotiated unfunded backlog does not include unexercised option periods and future potential task orders expected to be awarded under IDIQ, General Services Administration Schedule or other master agreement contract vehicles, with the exception of certain IDIQ contracts where task orders are not competitively awarded or separately priced but instead are used as a funding mechanism, and where there is a basis for estimating future revenues and funding on future anticipated task orders.

The estimated value of backlog as of the dates presented was as follows:

LEIDOS HOLDINGS, INC.
UNAUDITED NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Leidos uses and refers to organic revenue, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP diluted EPS, non-GAAP free cash flow and non-GAAP free cash flow conversion, which are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. and, accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with Leidos's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide another representation of the results of operations and financial condition, including its ability to comply with financial covenants. These non-GAAP measures are frequently used by financial analysts covering Leidos and its peers. The computation of non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, thus limiting their use for comparability.

Organic revenues capture the revenue that is inherent in the underlying business excluding the impact of acquisitions and divestitures made within the prior year; it is computed as current revenues excluding revenues from acquisitions within the last 12 months and divestitures within the current and year-ago periods.

Non-GAAP operating income is computed by excluding the following discrete items from operating income:

  • Acquisition, integration and restructuring costs – Represents acquisition, integration, lease termination, severance costs, retention costs and asset markdowns related to acquisitions and restructuring activities.
  • Amortization of acquired intangible assets – Represents the amortization of the fair value of the acquired intangible assets.
  • Derivative loss – Represents the fair value loss associated with the foreign currency forward contract to hedge the preliminary purchase price for the Cobham acquisition in Australian dollars.
  • Goodwill impairment charges – Represents impairments of goodwill due to changes in actual performance against performance projected when the goodwill was acquired.
  • Asset impairment charges – Represents impairments of long-lived intangible assets.

Non-GAAP operating margin is computed by dividing non-GAAP operating income by revenues.

Adjusted EBITDA is computed by excluding the following items from income before income taxes: (i) discrete items as identified above; (ii) interest expense; (iii) interest income; (iv) depreciation expense; and (v) amortization of internally developed intangible assets.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is computed by dividing adjusted EBITDA by revenues.

Non-GAAP net income is computed by excluding the discrete items listed under non-GAAP operating income and their related tax impacts.

Non-GAAP diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income attributable to Leidos common stockholders, adjusted for the discrete items as identified above and the related tax impacts, by the diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP free cash flow is computed by deducting expenditures for property, equipment and software from net cash provided by operating activities.

Non-GAAP free cash flow conversion is computed by dividing non-GAAP free cash flow by non-GAAP net income attributable to Leidos common stockholders; operating cash flow conversion is computed by dividing net cash provided by operating activities by net income attributable to Leidos shareholders.
