CENTREVILLE, Va., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) today announced financial results for the  second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

CEO Commentary

"Inclusion, diversity, and equality have been a central aspect of Parsons' core values for decades, and recent watershed events have elevated our commitment to assuring we achieve our vision of equal opportunity for all in these areas. These core values enhance our creativity and entrepreneurial culture, which is a key aspect of our competitive advantage and continued growth and success," said Chuck Harrington, chairman and chief executive office of Parsons Corporation.

Our long history of commitment to innovation, agility, and collaboration continues to differentiate Parsons and is enabling the acceleration of our transition to deliver more technology and transactional solutions.

Second Quarter 2020 Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2020 decreased by $10 million, or 1%, from the prior year period to $979 million. This decrease was driven by approximately $67 million of contract work that was delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Operating income increased to $46 million primarily as a result of an increase in gross profit and lower IPO-related long-term incentive compensation expenses and transaction-related costs. Net income decreased to $23 million and net income margin decreased to 2.4% from the prior year period. These decreases were driven by an income tax benefit associated with the establishment of a $56 million deferred tax asset resulting from Parsons conversion from an S-Corporation to a C-Corporation in the second quarter of 2019. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) attributable to Parsons was $0.23 in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $0.44 in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for the second quarter of 2020 was $91 million, a 20% increase over the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 160 basis points to 9.3%.

Adjusted EPS increased to $0.49, compared to $0.43 in the second quarter of 2019.

Second quarter 2020 revenue increased $4 million, or 1%, compared to the prior year period. The increase was driven by $28 million of increased volume on new and existing contracts, $8 million from acquisitions, offset by approximately $32 million of delayed contract work as a result of COVID-19. Excluding the impact from COVID-19, organic revenue growth would have been 6%, and 8% over the first half of 2020.

Second quarter 2020 Federal Solutions Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests increased by $12 million, or 33%, compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 9.9%, or by 240 basis points from the second quarter of 2019. These increases were primarily driven by higher profit margins driven by an increase in incentive fee recognition and a decrease in volume on contracts with pass-through costs.

Second quarter 2020 revenue decreased $14 million, or 3%, compared to the prior year period. The decrease was primarily driven by approximately $35 million of delayed contract work as a result of COVID-19, partially offset by an increase in business volume under new and existing contracts. Excluding the impact from COVID-19, revenue growth would have been 4%.

Second quarter 2020 Critical Infrastructure Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests increased by $3 million, or 7%, compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 8.7%, or by 80 basis points from the second quarter of 2019. These increases were primarily driven by higher earnings from consolidated joint ventures and improved project margins.

Second Quarter 2020 Key Performance Indicators

  • Book-to-bill ratio (second quarter): 1.0x on net bookings of $1.0 billion. Book-to-bill ratio (trailing twelve-months): 1.0x on net bookings of $4.0 billion.
  • Total backlog: $7.7 billion, a 9% decrease from the second quarter of 2019.
  • Cash flow from operating activities: $88 million compared to $12 million in the second quarter of 2019. This increase was driven by strong collections and income and payroll tax deferrals totaling approximately $33 million dollars.
  • Debt: total and net debt were $249 million and $120 million, respectively. The company's net debt to trailing twelve-month adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio at the end of the second quarter of 2020 was 0.4x. The company defines net debt as total debt less cash and cash equivalents, which was $129 million at June 30, 2020.

Recent Significant Contract Wins

Parsons continues to win large single-award, multiple-award, and joint venture projects.

  • Awarded a $307 million contract with a classified customer to provide enterprise security, including both cyber and physical security. This contract was awarded in the third quarter of 2020.
  • As the lead partner of a joint venture (JV), Parsons was awarded a $224 million recompete contract for the Riyadh Metro, the largest ongoing metro project in the world. Parsons' work scope includes program, design and construction management; systems testing, and commissioning.

  • As announced previously, Letitia A. Long, former director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), was elected to Parsons board of directors in April 2020. In addition, General Darren W. McDew, U.S. Air Force (ret.), and David C. Wajsgras were appointed to the company's board in July 2020. Gen.

Fiscal Year 2020 Guidance

The company is again reiterating the fiscal year 2020 guidance it initially issued on March 10, 2020, based on its financial results for the first half of 2020 and its current outlook for the remainder of year. The table below summarizes the company's fiscal year 2020 guidance.

 

Fiscal Year 2020 Guidance

Revenue

$3.95 billion - $4.05 billion

Adjusted EBITDA including non-controlling interest

$330 million - $360 million

Cash Flow from Operating Activities

$230 million - $250 million

Net income guidance is not presented as the company believes market volatility in its share price and the resulting impact on the company's equity-based compensation expense, as well as charges to interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other matters affecting net income will preclude the company from providing accurate net income guidance for fiscal year 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The tables under "Parsons Corporation Inc. Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" present Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization ("EBITDA"), Adjusted EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measure. These financial measures are calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("Non-GAAP Measures"). Parsons has provided these Non-GAAP Measures to adjust for, among other things, the impact of amortization expenses related to our acquisitions of Williams Electric, Polaris Alpha and  OGSystems, initial public offering transaction-related expenses, costs associated with a loss or gain on the disposal or sale of property, plant and equipment, restructuring and related expenses, costs associated with mergers and acquisitions, software implementation costs, legal and settlement costs, and other costs considered to non-operational in nature . These items have been Adjusted because they are not considered core to the company's business or otherwise not considered operational or because these charges are non-cash or non-recurring. The company presents these Non-GAAP Measures because management believes that they are meaningful to understanding Parsons's performance during the periods presented and the company's ongoing business. Non-GAAP Measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and therefore are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled metrics or the financial results of other companies. These Non-GAAP Measures should be considered a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
