Chantilly, VA – November 1, 2023 Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

CEO Commentary

“We delivered record quarterly results in total revenue, organic revenue growth, and operating cash flow, and reported strong net income and adjusted EBITDA. We also achieved over 20% organic growth in both segments for the second consecutive quarter, adjusted EBITDA growth of nearly 25%, a double-digit increase in contract awards, and over $200 million in quarterly cash flow for the first time in our company’s history.” said Carey Smith, chair, president, and chief executive officer. "In addition, we closed a strategic acquisition that strengthens our defensive cyber capabilities, at a time when accelerating and evolving cyber threats are driving increased customer spending, and we announced an additional accretive acquisition in our critical infrastructure portfolio this morning. I am very pleased with our team’s performance and their ability to capitalize on the tailwinds that are positively impacting both our Critical Infrastructure and Federal Solutions segments. As a result of our strong performance and the Sealing Technologies acquisition, we are raising our full-year revenue, adjusted EBITDA, and cash flow guidance ranges.”

Third Quarter 2023 Results

Year-over-Year Comparisons (Q3 2023 vs. Q3 2022)

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2023 increased by $284 million, or 25%, to $1.4 billion. This increase was primarily driven by organic growth of 23% due to the ramp-up of recent contract wins and growth on existing contracts, and inorganic revenue benefited from the company's SealingTech and IPKeys acquisitions. Operating income increased 30% to $83 million primarily due to organic growth and a high margin change order on an unconsolidated joint venture project. Net income increased 60% to $47 million. GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) attributable to Parsons was $0.42 in the third quarter of 2023, compared to $0.27 in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for the third quarter of 2023 was $128 million, a 24% increase over the prior year period. The adjusted EBITDA increase was driven primarily by organic growth and a high margin change order on an unconsolidated joint venture project. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 9.0% in the third quarter of 2023, compared to 9.1% in the third quarter of 2022. The year-over-year margin decrease was primarily driven by higher projected incentive compensation costs as a result of the company's strong operating performance and growing employee base. Adjusted EPS was $0.69 in the third quarter of 2023, compared to $0.48 in the third quarter of 2022. The year-over-year adjusted EPS increase was driven by the adjusted EBITDA increases noted above.

Third quarter 2023 revenue increased $160 million, or 26%, compared to the prior year period due to organic growth of 23% and $18 million from the company's Sealing Technologies acquisition. Organic revenue growth was primarily driven by growth on new and existing contracts, offset by the wind-down of the previously disclosed Kwajalein Island contract.

Third quarter 2023 Federal Solutions adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests increased by $4 million, or 7% primarily due to growth on recent contract awards. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 8.3% from 9.9% in the prior year period. This decrease was driven primarily by the timing of program milestones and completions, as well as higher projected incentive compensation costs as a result of the company's strong operating performance and growing employee base.

Third quarter 2023 Critical Infrastructure revenue increased $125 million, or 24%, compared to the prior year period due to organic growth of 24% and the inorganic revenue contribution from the company's IPKeys acquisition. Organic revenue growth was driven by higher volume in both the Middle East and North America.

Third quarter 2023 adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests increased by $21 million, or 51%, compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 9.8% from 8.1% in the prior year period. These increases were primarily driven by accretive organic growth and a high margin change order on an unconsolidated joint venture project that positively impacted equity in earnings.

Book-to-bill ratio: 1.0x on net bookings of $1.4 billion.
Book-to-bill ratio (trailing twelve-months): 1.2x on net bookings of $5.9 billion.

Significant Contract Wins

Parsons continues to win large strategic contracts in both the Federal Solutions and Critical Infrastructure segments. During the third quarter of 2023, the company won four single-award contracts worth more than $100 million each. For the first nine months of 2023, the company has been awarded 13 contracts worth more than $100 million each, compared to a total of 11 contracts for the full year 2022, which was a record.

A $160 million contract by the Intelligence Community to develop hardware and software solutions that enable intelligence operations. This classified contract includes a one-year base period plus six one-year option periods and represents both new and re-compete work with a customer that Parsons has supported for over two decades. The company booked $70 million on this contract in the third quarter.
A seven-year $150 million contract by the Southern Nevada Water Authority to enhance system reliability, increase water use efficiency, and improve community health. This contract represents both new and re-compete scope, and the company booked $47 million on this contract in the third quarter. Parsons is proud to have supported this critical customer for the past 30 years on more than 120 major projects.
A five-year contract with an estimated value of $130 million on the NASA Repairs, Operations, Maintenance, and Engineering contract. As a subcontractor to a small business, Parsons will provide facilities construction management and engineering and technical services. This contract represents both new and re-compete scope, and the company plans to book approximately $30 million on this contract in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Awarded scope of over $100 million for development of NEOM’s THE LINE, an infrastructure project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Parsons is proud to be supporting this giga-project which is a first-of-a-kind linear smart city driven by 100% renewable energy. Parsons is contributing on all five of Saudi Arabia’s giga-projects. The company booked the entire amount of this contract in the third quarter.
Awarded two new contracts in the Indo-Pacific region totaling over $70 million supporting the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Parsons was awarded a new three-year, $44 million contract to provide the design-build of U.S. Army housing on Kwajalein Island. The company was also awarded a new task order for $27 million over five years to assess munitions, explosives, and material for hazardous removal and provide construction management for the Missile Defense Agency facilities on Guam. The company booked $54 million in total under these two contracts in the third quarter. Parsons has been awarded extensive work in INDOPACOM by leveraging its program and construction management; engineering and planning; and complex infrastructure expertise. Parsons is proud of its sustained regional presence and is focused on continuing to support its U.S. customers’ infrastructure needs and presence as part of the $9.1 billion Pacific Deterrence Initiative in the Department of Defense's fiscal year 2024 budget.

Additional Corporate Highlights

Parsons continues to build on its strong track record of acquiring strategic companies in high-growth markets that broaden its portfolio and customer footprint. During the quarter, the company won multiple awards for being a top employer for diversity and military veterans and was recognized as a top three global industry leader in four categories: Professional Services, Program Management, Construction Management and Program/Construction Management for Fee.

During the third quarter, the company announced and closed its acquisition of Sealing Technologies in a transaction valued at approximately $200 million. SealingTech expands Parsons’ customer base across the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community, and further enhances the company’s capabilities in defensive cyber operations; integrated mission-solutions powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning; edge computing and edge access modernization; critical infrastructure protection; and secure data management.

After the third quarter ended, Parsons acquired Texas-based full-service consulting engineering firm I.S. Engineers for $11.5 million, which specializes in transportation engineering, including roads and highways, and program management. This acquisition transaction is consistent with the Parsons' strategy of completing accretive acquisitions of companies with revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA margins exceeding 10%, while adding critical infrastructure talent and bolstering the company’s portfolio in large and growing states. Texas is poised to receive nearly $30 billion in total transportation funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act between 2022 and 2026.
Recognized by STEM Workforce Diversity magazine for the eighth consecutive year as a top national STEM employer for minority groups, women, and people with disabilities working in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Named to the “Best of the Best 2023 – Top Veteran-Friendly Companies” list by the U.S. Veterans Magazine. This award recognizes the top U.S. companies that are recruiting and providing a rewarding work culture for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans and military spouses. This recognition is the latest in a string of accolades recognizing the company’s efforts for being a veteran-friendly company.
Recognized by Engineering News-Record as one of the top three global companies in each of their 2023 rankings for Professional Services, Program Management, Construction Management and Program/Construction Management for Fee firms. These rankings reflect the company's worldwide reputation and ability to successfully win and perform infrastructure programs.

Fiscal Year 2023 Guidance

The company is increasing its fiscal year 2023 revenue, adjusted EBITDA, and cash flow from operations guidance ranges to reflect its strong third quarter operating performance, Sealing Technologies acquisition, and its outlook for the remainder of the year. The table below summarizes the company’s fiscal year 2023 guidance.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The tables under "Parsons Corporation Inc. Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" present Adjusted Net Income attributable to Parsons Corporation, Adjusted Earnings per Share, 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, 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 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.

 

1 Book-to-Bill ratio is calculated as total contract awards divided by total revenue for the period.
