CENTREVILLE, Va., Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

CEO Commentary

“In the second quarter, we delivered record awards, generated strong free cash flow, and announced a significant acquisition that added attractive capabilities and met our strict M&A criteria, which demonstrates our ability to continue to deploy capital to generate long term shareholder value,” said Carey Smith, president and chief executive officer of Parsons.

“However, revenue in the quarter fell below our expectations, and margins were impacted by two program reserves. Although we continue to expect our second half results to exceed our first half performance, we are reducing our outlook for the full year. Our differentiated and complementary defense and critical infrastructure portfolios are well aligned with the Biden Administration’s priorities, and we remain excited about the future given the significant progress and tailwinds we are already seeing in the third quarter.”

Second Quarter 2021 Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2021 decreased by $100 million, or 10%, from the prior year period to $879 million. Operating income decreased 56% to $20 million primarily due to a $15.4 million reserve taken on a legacy Critical Infrastructure program, a $6.9 million reserve taken on a Federal Solutions program, contract delays, and a competitive hiring environment. Net income decreased to $7 million and net income margin decreased to 0.8% from the prior year period. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) attributable to Parsons was $0.06 in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $0.23 in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for the second quarter of 2021 was $66 million, a 28% decrease over the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 7.5%. Adjusted EPS decreased to $0.32, compared to $0.49 in the second quarter of 2020. These decreases were driven primarily by the items noted above for operating income.

Second quarter 2021 adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests decreased by $10 million, or 24%, compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 7.6%.

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.
