RESTON, Va., May 4, 2021 – Leidos Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: LDOS), a FORTUNE 500® science and technology leader, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.
Roger Krone, Leidos Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “First quarter results reflect the perseverance, focus and tremendous execution of our employees and business partners. New quarterly record levels of revenue, non-GAAP EPS and backlog were achieved, and significant organic growth was delivered across all business segments. This early momentum favorably positions Leidos to deliver on our full year financial commitments.”
Revenues for the quarter were $3.32 billion, compared to $2.89 billion in the prior year quarter, reflecting a 14.7% increase. Excluding our revenue growth from our acquisitions of $168 million for Dynetics, Inc. ("Dynetics"), L3Harris Technologies' security detection and automation businesses (the "SD&A Businesses") and 1901 Group, LLC ("1901 Group"), organic revenue increased by $258 million or 8.9%. This increase was primarily attributable to program wins and a net increase in volumes on certain programs.
Operating income for the quarter was $308 million, compared to $192 million in the prior year quarter, reflecting a 60.4% increase. Operating income margin increased to 9.3% from 6.6% in the prior year quarter. Non-GAAP operating income margin for the quarter was 11.1%, compared to 8.5% in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to a net increase in higher margin program volumes, program wins and a $26 million net benefit from an adjustment to legal reserves related to the Mission Support Alliance joint venture.
Diluted earnings per share ("EPS") attributable to Leidos common stockholders for the quarter was $1.42, compared to $0.80 in the prior year quarter. Non-GAAP diluted EPS for the quarter was $1.73, compared to $1.19 in the prior year quarter. The weighted average diluted share count for the quarter was 144 million for both the current and prior year quarters.
Defense Solutions revenues for the quarter of $1,958 million increased by $253 million, or 14.8%, compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was primarily attributable to program wins, a net increase in volumes on certain programs and a benefit in exchange rate movements. The acquisition of Dynetics contributed incremental revenues of $83 million in the current quarter, which represents an additional month of revenues as compared to the prior year quarter and our acquisition of the 1901 Group contributed $13 million of revenues. The increases in revenues were partially offset by the completion of certain contracts.
Defense Solutions operating income margin for the quarter was 7.8%, compared to 5.6% in the prior year quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, operating income margin for the quarter was 9.2%, compared to 6.8% in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to program wins, a net increase in program volumes on higher margin contracts and lower indirect expenditures.
