CACI said the improved operating performance is reflected on various programs, particularly on fixed-price contracts. Corporate taxes are slightly higher than expected.

The company also introduced financial guidance for FY ’19, with sales projected to be between $4.6 billion and $4.8 billion, and net income between $230 million ($8.98 EPS) and $240 million ($9.38 EPS). Earnings are forecast to drop versus FY ’18 due to higher corporate taxes.

“Our FY ’19 guidance builds on the revenue and profitability growth we delivered in FY ’18,” Ken Asbury, CACI’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “We are winning solutions business, our addressable market is growing, and the budget environment has improved. I am confident this plan will produce predictable, profitable growth and continue generating long-term shareholder value.”
