“We had several key accomplishments in the second quarter: we delivered EPS ahead of our expectations, we had positive organic revenue growth and we announced the first monetization from our AECOM Capital portfolio,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “In addition, shortly after the quarter closed, we were selected for a substantial $3.6 billion project in our Management Services business, which builds on our recent large project wins. These successes are the clearest evidence yet that our intensified business development investments and efforts to drive growth are delivering results.”

“Our strong financial performance and outlook are a testament to our consistent execution and the benefits of our diverse end-market and geographic exposure,” said Stephen M. Kadenacy, AECOM’s president and chief operating officer. “As we progress through the second half of the fiscal year, our attention remains focused on delivering strong results and building on our pipeline momentum to best position the business for long-term outperformance.”

Wins and Backlog

Wins in the quarter were $3.4 billion, an increase of 10% over the prior-year period, and resulted in a book-to-burn ratio6 of 0.7. Total backlog increased 4%3 over the prior-year period to $42.4 billion. The Company’s backlog is expected to reflect the $3.6 billion Management Services award upon resolution of a protest by the incumbent contractor.

Business Segments

In addition to providing consolidated financial results, AECOM reports separate financial information for its three segments: Design & Consulting Services, Construction Services and Management Services.

Design & Consulting Services (DCS)

The DCS segment delivers planning, consulting, architectural and engineering design services to commercial and government clients worldwide in markets such as transportation, facilities, environmental, energy, water and government.

Revenue in the second quarter was $1.9 billion. Constant-currency organic7 revenue decreased by 3% as significant infrastructure investment initiatives have yet to positively impact the Company’s markets.

Operating income was $113 million compared to $99 million in the year-ago period. On an adjusted basis, operating income8 was $120 million compared to $140 million in the year-ago period. Second quarter adjusted operating income reflects strong underlying execution offset by increased investments in business development to capitalize on improving market trends and the expected lower contribution from normal margin.

Construction Services (CS)

The CS segment provides construction services for energy, sports, commercial, industrial, and public and private infrastructure clients.

Revenue in the second quarter was $1.7 billion. Constant-currency organic7 revenue increased by 12%, highlighted by growth in the Building Construction and Power businesses.

Operating income was $26 million compared to operating income of $5 million in the year-ago period. On an adjusted basis, operating income8 was $34 million compared to $17 million in the year-ago period. This improvement reflects strong performance in the Building Construction and Power businesses and better performance in Oil & Gas.

Management Services (MS)

The MS segment provides program and facilities management and maintenance, training, logistics, consulting, technical assistance and systems-integration services and information technology services, primarily for agencies of the U.S. government, national governments around the world and commercial customers.

Revenue in the second quarter was $827 million. Organic7 revenue decreased by 8%.

Operating income was $52 million compared to $116 million in the year-ago period. On an adjusted basis, operating income9 was $65 million compared to $140 million in the year-ago period.

Revenue and adjusted operating income9 in the year-ago period included a $45 million benefit from an accelerated recovery of a government pension entitlement resulting from the harmonization of the Company’s benefit program. Excluding this item, organic7 revenue declined by 4% year-over-year.

Tax Rate

The effective tax rate in the second quarter was (44.2%) and included a benefit from the reversal of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance. The net impact from the reversal of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance and a higher rate than contemplated in guidance was a $0.33 benefit to earnings per share in the fiscal second quarter. On an adjusted basis, the effective tax rate was (16.5%). The adjusted tax rate was derived by re-computing the expected annual effective tax rate on earnings from adjusted net income.10 The adjusted tax expense differs from the GAAP tax expense based on the taxability or deductibility and tax rate applied to each of the adjustments.

Cash Flow

Operating cash flow for the second quarter was ($46) million, and free cash flow5 was ($64) million. Cash flow was impacted by the outflow from a legal settlement that was disclosed in the fiscal first quarter.

The Company remains on track with its annual free cash flow guidance of $600 million to $800 million for fiscal 2017.

Balance Sheet

AECOM had $726 million of total cash and cash equivalents, $3.5 billion of net debt and $870 million in unused capacity under its $1.05 billion revolving credit facility. Total debt has declined by $1.1 billion since closing the URS acquisition in October 2014.

Financial Outlook

AECOM is reiterating fiscal year 2017 adjusted EPS2 guidance of $2.80 to $3.20, which includes approximately $0.20 of anticipated gains related to AECOM Capital realizations at the mid-point of the range.

The Company expects fiscal 2017 full-year interest expense, excluding amortization of deferred financing fees, of approximately $210 million as compared to $200 million previously. The Company expects an effective tax rate10 for adjusted earnings of approximately 18% compared to 20% previously. The net impact to adjusted EPS guidance from these two changes is immaterial.

The Company continues to expect a full-year share count of 159 million.

The Company also expects $36 million of acquisition and integration expenses during the fiscal year.

Fiscal year 2017 capital expenditures11 are expected to be approximately $115 million. The Company expects depreciation expense of approximately $165 million and the amortization of intangible assets12 to be approximately $95 million.

All statements in this press release other than statements of historical fact are “forward-looking statements” for purposes of federal and state securities laws, including any projections of earnings, revenue, cash flows, tax rate, share count, interest expense, amortization of intangible assets and financial fees, AECOM Capital realizations, Management Services awards, acquisition and integration expense, or other financial items; any statements of the plans, strategies and objectives for future operations; and any statements regarding future economic conditions or performance. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are reasonable, actual results could differ materially from those projected or assumed in any of our forward-looking statements.

Important factors that could cause our actual results, performance and achievements, or industry results to differ materially from estimates or projections contained in our forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: our business is cyclical and vulnerable to economic downturns and client spending reductions; uncertainties related to government contract appropriations; Budget Control Act of 2011; governmental agencies may modify, curtail or terminate our contracts; government contracts are subject to audits and adjustments of contractual terms; losses under fixed-price contracts; limited control over operations run through our joint venture entities; misconduct by our employees or consultants or our failure to comply with laws or regulations applicable to our business; our leveraged position and ability to service our debt; ability to maintain surety and financial capacity; exposure to legal, political and economic risks in different countries as well as currency exchange rate fluctuations; the failure to retain and recruit key technical and management personnel; our insurance policies may not provide adequate coverage; Brexit; unexpected adjustments and cancellations related to our backlog; dependence on third party contractors who fail to satisfy their obligations; systems and information technology interruption; and changing client preferences/demands, fiscal positions and payment patterns. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our forward-looking statements are set forth in our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We do not intend, and undertake no obligation, to update any forward-looking statement.

This press release contains financial information calculated other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). In particular, the Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures such as adjusted EPS, adjusted operating income, adjusted tax rate, adjusted interest expense, organic revenue, and free cash flow also provide a meaningful perspective on its business results as the Company utilizes this information to evaluate and manage the business. We use adjusted net and operating income to exclude the impact of prior acquisitions and dispositions. We use free cash flow to represent the cash generated after capital expenditures to maintain our business. Our non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for financial information determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures is found in the Regulation G tables at the back of this release.
