Outlook for FY18

For fiscal 2018, CACI expects revenues to be in the range of $4,350 million to $4,500 million with earnings of $165–$173 million or $6.52–$6.84 per share. Operating cash flow is expected to be over $280 million with capital expenditures to the tune of approximately $35–$40 million, driven by facility consolidation and information technology improvements.   

CACI intends to drive operational excellence by intensively focusing on its organic and inorganic growth strategy and strengthening its existing customer relationships while building newer ones. In addition, the company anticipates benefitting significantly from its cost-reduction program.

FY17 Outlook Reiterated

Moving Forward

CACI has a large pipeline of new projects and continues to win more deals at regular intervals. These back-to-back contract wins are the key catalysts driving success perennially for the company. Furthermore, having the government as a big client lends stability to the business and moderates fluctuations in revenues. Moreover, government contracts also improve the visibility of future revenue streams.  The company has been doing very well with a record level of awards, which reflects its disciplined business development actions, consistent operational excellence and high customer satisfaction.

Moving forward, CACI intends to assiduously grow in large markets, increase new business initiatives and leverage mergers and acquisitions to further increase its market share and create long-term value for its shareholders.
