Mac Curtis Chairman

Perspecta has announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, ending Oct. 2, 2020, the company reported on Wednesday. Perspecta stated that revenue for the quarter was $1.14 billion, down 3 percent compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, and up three percent compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.

"Since our inception, we have consistently achieved solid execution across the enterprise, and this quarter is no exception. Once again, we delivered on our revenue, adjusted diluted earnings per share and free cash flow conversion expectations," said Mac Curtis, chairman and CEO of Perspecta and six-time Wash100 Award recipient. 

Perspecta’s year-over-year decline in revenue was due to the one-time $60 million asset sale related to the NASA Agency Consolidated End-User Services (NASA ACES) program closeout, as well as the impact of COVID-19. Excluding the impacts of the asset sale and the COVID-19 pandemic, revenue for the quarter grew four percent year-over-year. 

Income before taxes for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $19 million, which was down 49 percent compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2020. Operating margin decreased from 3.2 percent to 1.7 percent year-over-year. Net income was $16 million.

Perspecta announced that adjusted net income was $86 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, down 2 percent year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA was $179 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, down 9 percent compared to adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020. 

The company’s as-expected year-over-year decrease in profitability was primarily due to lower asset intensity, an increased mix of cost-reimbursable programs and a $5 million COVID-19 impact. Perspect reported an adjusted diluted EPS of $0.53, down two percent compared to adjusted diluted EPS for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.

"We continue to accomplish these strong results, quarter after quarter, because of our dedication and commitment to mission execution and operational excellence.  With strategic awards and significant milestones in the areas of cyber, 5G and cloud migration, we remain steadfast in supporting our customers during this unprecedented time," Curtis added.
