Revenues for the first quarter were $1,215 million compared to $1,009 million during the prior year quarter, which represents an increase of $206 million. Our fiscal year 2017 is a 53-week year and contains an extra week compared to the prior fiscal year. The extra week occurred during the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Of the $206 million increase in revenue in the current quarter, an estimated $88 million of the increase was due to the additional week in the first quarter. The remaining revenue growth was primarily due to the acquisition of Scitor, which occurred during the second quarter of the prior fiscal year and revenue from newly awarded programs ($42 million). These increases were partially offset by lower current quarter supply chain material volume ($41 million) as a result of a recompete contract loss last year.

The Company’s internal revenue contraction for the first quarter was 3.1%. As is shown in Schedule 5, to calculate internal revenue growth or contraction, revenues from the prior year quarter were adjusted to include Scitor’s historical revenues as if the acquisition had occurred at the beginning of the comparable prior year period. Also, this calculation adjusted first quarter fiscal 2017 revenues to exclude the estimated impact of the additional week in order to provide a more equitable comparison to fiscal 2016. Revenues contracted primarily due to the supply chain contract loss and a decrease in revenues generated by the legacy Scitor business caused by delays in contract awards, and transition of work to small business set aside contracts. These decreases were partially offset by revenues on newly awarded programs.

Operating income for the quarter was $66 million, or 5.4% of revenues, down from 5.6% in the prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily due to increased current year selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) as well as acquisition and integration costs related to lease exit costs. SG&A for the quarter includes the amortization of acquired Scitor intangible assets ($7 million) and executive severance expense ($2 million). These decreases to operating income were partially offset by higher net favorable changes in contract profit estimates compared to the prior year period ($5 million) and reduced volume on supply chain contracts that generate lower operating margins.

Adjusted EBITDA (which excludes acquisition and integration costs) was $86 million for the first quarter, or 7.1% of revenues, compared to 6.4% in the comparable prior year quarter. The increase was due to strong contract performance and the inclusion of Scitor which has a relatively higher EBITDA margin percentage than our historical business, along with reduced supply chain contract volume.

Net income for the quarter was consistent with the prior year quarter, primarily due to increased operating income ($6 million, net of tax), offset by increased interest expense on incremental term loan borrowings related to the Scitor acquisition ($6 million, net of tax).

Diluted earnings per share was $0.71 for the quarter and adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.80 (which excludes the estimated after-tax effects of $7 million of acquisition and integration costs). The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the quarter was 46.5 million shares.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment

Total cash flows provided by operating activities for the quarter were $35 million, an increase of $6 million from the comparable prior year quarter. The increase in operating cash flows over the prior year quarter was primarily due to lower income tax payments ($3 million) and cash flows provided by the operating activities of Scitor. These increases were partially offset by a current period investment of working capital for the Assault Amphibious Vehicle contract ($7 million) and higher interest payments in the current period as a result of additional borrowings ($9 million).

During the quarter SAIC deployed $44 million of capital, consisting of $14 million in cash dividends and $30 million in plan share repurchases (approximately 622 thousand shares) under SAIC’s previously announced share repurchase program.

Quarterly Dividend Declared

Subsequent to quarter end, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.31 per share payable on July 29, 2016 to stockholders of record on July 15, 2016. SAIC intends to continue paying dividends on a quarterly basis although the declaration of any future dividends will be determined by the Board of Directors each quarter and will depend on earnings, financial condition, capital requirements and other factors.

New Business Awards

Net bookings for the quarter were approximately $1.3 billion, which reflects a book-to-bill ratio of approximately 1.0. SAIC’s estimated backlog of signed business orders at the end of the quarter was approximately $7.2 billion of which $2.1 billion was funded.

SAIC was awarded the following notable contracts during the quarter:

U.S. Army – Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineer Center (AMRDEC): SAIC received multiple task order contract modifications by AMRDEC to continue to provide services, including: modeling and simulation environments support; integrated air and missile defense technical support; business system combined software support; aircraft survivability equipment support; joint battle command platform and aviation systems support; and computer resources support.

BACKLOG

The estimated value of our total backlog as of the dates presented was:

   
May 6, January 29,
    2016   2016
(in millions)
Funded backlog $ 2,096 $ 1,879
Negotiated unfunded backlog     5,139     5,319
Total backlog   $ 7,235   $ 7,198
 

Backlog represents the estimated amount of future revenues to be recognized under negotiated contracts and task orders as work is performed and excludes contract awards which have been protested by competitors until the protest is resolved in our favor. SAIC segregates backlog into two categories, funded backlog and negotiated unfunded backlog. Funded backlog for contracts with government agencies primarily represents contracts for which funding is appropriated less revenues previously recognized on these contracts, and does not include the unfunded portion of contracts where funding is incrementally appropriated or authorized by the U.S. government and other customers even though the contract may call for performance over a number of years. Funded backlog for contracts with non-government agencies represents the estimated value of contracts which may cover multiple future years under which SAIC is obligated to perform, less revenues previously recognized on these contracts. Negotiated unfunded backlog represents the estimated future revenues to be earned from negotiated contracts for which funding has not been appropriated or authorized, and unexercised priced contract options. Negotiated unfunded backlog does not include any estimate of future potential task orders expected to be awarded under indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ), U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) schedules or other master agreement contract vehicles.

  Internal revenue growth (contraction) is a non-GAAP financial measure that management believes provides an indicator of how successful SAIC has been in growing revenues as we develop our base business and access new markets and capabilities provided by acquisitions like Scitor. We calculate our internal revenue growth (contraction) percentage by comparing our reported revenues for the current year to the reported revenues for the prior year comparable period adjusted to include the comparable period historical revenues of acquired businesses as if the acquisition took place in the prior year. For fiscal 2017 we have also adjusted current year revenues to reflect the impact of our 52/53 week fiscal year, which in fiscal 2017 includes an additional productive week that was not included in fiscal 2016. We calculate the revenue impact of the 53rd week by dividing the current year’s revenues by the number of productive days in the current quarter and multiplying that amount by the number of additional days in the current quarter.

(2)

Internal revenue growth (contraction), adjusted operating income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures that are reconciled in this schedule to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with greater visibility into the financial performance of our Company, including revenues, operating income and net income: but they are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with SAIC's consolidated and combined financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The methods used to calculate these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the methods used by other companies and so similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies may not be comparable to those provided in this schedule.

  Adjusted diluted earnings per share and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures that are reconciled in this schedule to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with greater visibility into diluted earnings per share and cash flows provided by operating activities, but they are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with SAIC's consolidated and combined financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share is calculated excluding acquisition and integration costs of $7 million for the three months ended May 6, 2016 and uses SAIC’s effective income tax rates for each period reported without the negative effect of the non-deductible acquisition costs that are included in reported net income.
