CSC Reports Continuing Operating Improvement and Strong Profitability in Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2013

08:00 EDT Wednesday, May 15, 2013

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (Business Wire) -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today reported fourth quarter 2013 diluted earnings per share of $1.81 consisting of $1.57 from continuing operations and $0.24 from discontinued operations. This compares with a diluted loss per share from continuing operations of ($1.20) in the fourth quarter 2012. Total revenues for the quarter were $3.70 billion and compares with $3.99 billion in the year ago period.

For fiscal year 2013, diluted earnings per share were $6.18 consisting of $3.20 from continuing operations and $2.98 from discontinued operations. This compares with a diluted loss per share from continuing operations of ($28.31) in fiscal 2012. Total revenues were $14.99 billion and compares with $15.36 billion in the year ago period.

“During fiscal 2013, CSC delivered on its commitments and made significant strides in transforming our company. We returned to profitability and exceeded our targets for cost takeout, operating margin expansion, EPS and free cash flow growth. We are making significant investments in our business – employees, offerings, systems, and partnerships - designed to enhance our competitive position and long-term earnings growth. And we returned $428 million to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends,” said Mike Lawrie, president and CEO. “For fiscal year 2014, our plans include continued cost takeout, investing in our people, expanding market coverage, pursuing delivery excellence and driving innovation with our clients.”

* Excludes discretionary pension contribution of $500 million.

Financial Highlights

  • Diluted EPS of $1.81 for the fourth quarter and $6.18 for the fiscal year 2013 compares with losses in the prior year.
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations of $1.27 for the fourth quarter excludes certain items: a tax planning benefit of $1.02 per share, a gain on the sale of an Australian IT staffing business of $0.24 per share, settlement of a shareholder securities class action lawsuit of ($0.24) per share, and restructuring charges of ($0.72) per share. For fiscal year 2013, non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations excluding these certain items was $2.90.
  • Income from continuing operations before taxes of $110 million for the quarter and $480 million for fiscal year 2013 compares with a loss in both prior periods.
  • Pre-tax margin of 3.0% for the quarter and 3.2% for fiscal year 2013 improved 760 bps and 3,220 bps when compared with the prior year.
  • Operating income of $212 million for the quarter and $900 million for the year are significant improvements when compared with operating losses in the year ago periods. Excluding restructuring charges of $153 million for the fourth quarter and $262 million for the year, operating income was $365 million and $1,162 million respectively.
  • Operating margin of 5.7% for the quarter and 6.0% for fiscal year 2013. Excluding restructuring charges, operating margin was 9.9% for the fourth quarter and 7.8% for the fiscal year.
  • Operating cash flow of $41 million in the quarter declined from $496 million in the prior year primarily due to CSC's previously announced decision to make a $500 million discretionary contribution to its pension plans. For fiscal 2013, operating cash flow was $1,119 million as reported and $1,619 million excluding the discretionary pension contributions.
  • Excluding discretionary pension contributions of $500 million, free cash flow was $307 million for the fourth quarter and was $764 million for 2013. Fiscal 2013 free cash flow compares favorably with $59 million from fiscal 2012.
  • Ending cash and cash equivalents were $2.05 billion, an increase of $961 million from March 30, 2012.

Managed Services Sector (MSS)

For the fourth quarter, MSS revenue of $1.63 billion decreased 4%, as reported, and in constant currency, when compared with the fourth quarter of 2012. Segment operating margin was 3.4% compared with a (8.4%) margin in the prior year and includes restructuring charges of $122 million which were partially offset by better contract performance and cost takeout. MSS signed $1.1 billion of new business during the quarter.

For fiscal 2013, MSS revenue of $6.46 billion decreased by 2%, as reported, and was unchanged in constant currency, when compared with the prior year. Segment operating margin was 5.6% improved by 530 bps when compared with fiscal 2012 due to better contract performance and cost takeout, partially offset by restructuring charges of $190 million. New business awards for MSS were $6.9 billion during fiscal 2013.

Business Solutions & Services (BSS)

Fourth quarter BSS revenue of $0.80 billion decreased by 12%, as reported, and in constant currency primarily due to the sale of an Australian IT staffing business. BSS operating margin of 9.9% compares with a (1.9%) margin in the prior year. Operating margin improved primarily as the result of cost takeout and included a restructuring charge of $7 million. New business awards for BSS were $1.0 billion during the quarter.

For fiscal 2013, BSS revenue of $3.27 billion increased by 3%, as reported, and increased by 6% in constant currency, when compared with the prior year. Operating margin of 4.2% compares favorably with an operating loss in the prior year due to progress on cost takeout partially offset by workforce restructuring charges of $39 million. BSS signed $3.4 billion of new business during fiscal 2013, excluding divested businesses.

Subsequent to the fourth quarter of 2013, CSC reached an agreement to divest a flood insurance business process outsourcing business for $46 million in cash. This business contributed approximately $44 million of revenue and four cents of diluted EPS from continuing operations in fiscal 2013. These results will be recast as discontinued operations in future periods.

North American Public Sector (NPS)

Fourth quarter NPS revenue of $1.31 billion declined by 7% from the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to contracts which were winding down and the slow pace of new business awards. Operating margin of 10.0% increased by 420 bps when compared with the prior year and included better cost takeout and contract management partially offset by restructuring costs of $10 million. NPS awards of $0.8 billion declined from one year ago primarily due to delays in government procurement.

For fiscal 2013, NPS revenue of $5.39 billion decreased by 6% when compared with the prior year. Operating margin increased by 730 basis points to 9.6% due to better contract management and cost takeout partially offset by workforce restructuring charges of $13 million. NPS signed $3.5 billion of new business during fiscal 2013.

Returning Cash to Shareholders

During the fourth quarter, CSC returned $258 million to shareholders consisting of $30 million in common stock dividends and $228 million of share repurchases. CSC repurchased 4.7 million shares during the quarter at an average price of $48.15.

For the fiscal year 2013, CSC returned $428 million to shareholders in the form of $123 million in common stock dividends and $305 million of share repurchases. During the year, CSC repurchased 6.7 million shares at an average price of $45.47.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following tables reconcile operating income, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) and free cash flow to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. CSC management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors regarding the company's financial condition and results of operations as they provide another measure of the company's profitability and ability to service its debt, and are considered important measures by financial analysts covering CSC and its peers.

Management uses operating income to evaluate business unit financial performance and it is one of the measures used in assessing management performance. One of the limitations associated with the use of operating income (as compared to reported earnings) is that it does not reflect the complete financial results of the company. CSC compensates for these limitations by providing reconciliation between operating income and income before taxes. Management uses free cash flow as one of the factors in reviewing the overall performance of the business. Management compensates for the limitations of this non-GAAP measure by also reviewing the GAAP measures of operating, investing and financing cash flows as well as debt levels measured by the debt-to-total capitalization ratio.

GAAP Reconciliations

Non-GAAP Diluted EPS from Continuing Operations

The tables below set forth the impact of certain fourth quarter fiscal 2013 items on diluted EPS from continuing operations. These items were not included in the company's targets publicly disclosed on February 5, 2013, and include:

  • Gain on divestiture - This item represents the gain on the sale of Paxus, CSC's Australian IT Staffing unit. The divestiture did not qualify to be presented as discontinued operations due to CSC's continuing business relationship with the divested entity.
