FALLS CHURCH, Va., March 11, 2021 — PAE Incorporated (“PAE” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PAE, PAEWW) today announced fourth-quarter and full year 2020 financial and operating results.
PAE President and CEO John Heller said, “We delivered strong organic year-over-year revenue growth of 7.4% (before the impact of acquisitions) and profitability that exceeded expectations for the quarter. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic in 2020, we successfully executed against our objectives of increasing profit margins, lowering our cost of debt and completing strategic, accretive acquisitions. We have favorable tailwinds entering 2021 with recent flagship contract wins, including positions on the Global Support Strategy 2.0 and MEGA V IDIQ contracts, along with the anticipated successful integrations of CENTRA and Metis.”
COVID-19 Financial Impact
We estimate the fourth-quarter negative impact from the COVID-19 pandemic to be approximately $62.1 million of revenue and an immaterial net impact to adjusted EBITDA and cash flow provided by operations. These impacts were primarily driven by disruptions to logistics operations and by limitations on the ability of PAE employees and subcontractors to access facilities to perform on customer contracts. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, PAE has operated as an essential business, continuing to support our customers in a resilient market.
