Maximus Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results for Fiscal Year 2021

Maximus (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, reported financial results for the three months and year ended September 30, 2021.

Highlights for fiscal year 2021 include:

  • Revenue increased 22.9% to $4.25 billion compared to $3.46 billion for the prior year, driven by approximately $1.1 billion of COVID-19 response work and $322.7 million of revenue contributions from the Attain Federal and Veterans Evaluation Services (VES) acquisitions, and offset by the completed Census contract.
  • Operating margin was 9.6% compared to 8.3% for the prior year. Diluted earnings per share were $4.67. Amortization of intangible assets was $44.4 million, or $0.52 diluted earnings per share. Adjusting for amortization of intangible assets, operating income margin and diluted earnings per share would be 10.6% and $5.19, respectively.
  • A quarterly cash dividend of $0.28 per share payable on November 30, 2021, to shareholders of record on November 15, 2021.

“Fiscal year 2021 was significant for the Company including three acquisitions, transition of leadership in our U.S. Federal Segment, several large contract wins including the U.K. Restart Programme, and operating over $1 billion of COVID-19 response work helping governments respond to the pandemic,” shared Bruce Caswell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The integration of the acquisitions evolves our strategy and matures our portfolio while remaining true to our core business as a program administrator dedicated to helping government serve the people.”

Consolidated Fiscal Year 2021 Results

Revenue for fiscal year 2021 increased 22.9% to $4.25 billion, compared to $3.46 billion for the prior year. The $0.79 billion increase was driven by COVID-19 response work including vaccination distribution support services, unemployment insurance program support, disease investigation, contact tracing, and other key public health initiatives. COVID-19 response work contributed approximately $1.1 billion for the year ended, or an increase of approximately $0.9 billion over the prior year for this work. The acquired businesses of Attain Federal and VES completed on March 1, 2021 and May 28, 2021, respectively, contributed a combined $322.7 million of revenue to fiscal year 2021. The increases were offset by the completed Census contract which contributed approximately $450 million less revenue in fiscal year 2021.

For fiscal year 2021, operating income totaled $408.5 million, yielding an operating margin of 9.6%. This compares to an operating margin of 8.3% for the prior year. Diluted earnings per share were $4.67 as compared to $3.39 for the prior-year period.

Operating income includes amortization of intangible assets which was $44.4 million, or $0.52 diluted earnings per share for fiscal year 2021. Adjusting for amortization, operating margin and diluted earnings per share would be 10.6% and $5.19, respectively, in fiscal year 2021. In the prior year, amortization totaled $35.6 million, or $0.41, which would result in adjusted operating margin and diluted earnings per share of 9.4% and $3.80, respectively.

U.S. Services Segment

U.S. Services Segment revenue for fiscal year 2021 increased 25.0% to $1.66 billion, compared to $1.33 billion reported in the prior year. This increase was driven by COVID-19 response work, which contributed an estimated $618 million of revenue to this segment in fiscal 2021, compared to an estimated $129 million in the prior year.

Operating margin for fiscal year 2021 was 15.3% compared to 17.1% reported for the prior-year period. Fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021 included a write-off of fixed assets, leased assets and deferred contract costs related to a contract in its startup phase in this segment. Excluding the write-off, the segment margin would be 16.0% and reflects a full year of headwinds experienced on some of this segment’s core programs, including those impacted by the pause of Medicaid redeterminations.

U.S. Federal Services Segment

U.S. Federal Services Segment revenue for fiscal year 2021 increased 15.9% to $1.89 billion, compared to $1.63 billion reported for the prior year. As expected, the Census contract contributed approximately $450 million less revenue in fiscal year 2021 as compared to the prior-year period due the natural conclusion of this contract. This was offset by COVID-19 response work that contributed an estimated $466 million of revenue to the segment, compared to an estimated $71 million in the prior year. Segment results for fiscal year 2021 included $322.7 million of revenue from Attain Federal and VES.

The operating margin for fiscal year 2021 was 10.0% as compared to 8.1% reported for the prior year. Both the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2021 margins for this segment fell short of the Company’s expectations due to several non-recurring investments that are expected to benefit future operating results.

Outside the U.S. Segment

Outside the U.S. Segment revenue for fiscal year 2021 increased 40.1% to $699.1 million as compared to $498.9 million reported for the prior year. Operating income for fiscal year 2021 was $20.1 million, yielding an operating margin of 2.9%, compared to an operating loss of $34.1 million for fiscal year 2020.

As previously disclosed, this segment has several contracts in startup, most notably the two-region win on the U.K. Restart Programme. The startup contracts resulted in planned startup losses incurred in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 as the U.K. Restart Programme ramped as expected. Significant improvement to the financial contribution from these contracts is still expected in the second half of fiscal 2022.

Sales and Pipeline

Year-to-date signed contract awards at September 30, 2021, totaled $5.62 billion and contracts pending (awarded but unsigned) totaled $0.72 billion. These awards reflect total contract value (TCV) and include the previously announced U.K. Restart Programme award of more than $960.0 million. Less than $1 billion of the $5.62 billion signed contract awards relate to COVID-19 response work. Remaining increases to signed contract awards were driven by wins in the U.S. Services and U.S. Federal Services Segments.

The sales pipeline at September 30, 2021, was $33.9 billion (comprised of approximately $8.8 billion in proposals pending, $1.42 billion in proposals in preparation, and $23.69 billion in opportunities tracking). New work opportunities represent 69.5% of the total sales pipeline.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

At September 30, 2021, cash and cash equivalents totaled $135.1 million and gross debt was $1.52 billion. The ratio of debt, net of allowed cash, to pro-forma EBITDA for the full year ended September 30, 2021, as calculated in accordance with our credit agreement, was 2.3x. This compares to 2.4x at June 30, 2021.

For fiscal year 2021, cash flows from operations totaled $517.3 million and free cash flow was $480.8 million. This compares to $244.6 million and $203.9 million, respectively, in the prior year. Strong cash flows for fiscal 2021 resulted from a decrease in investment in working capital and improved earnings as compared to fiscal year 2020. The decrease in investment resulted from good collections combined with advance payments on new work and deferral of payroll taxes.

As of September 30, 2021, DSO were 68 days and within the Company’s typical range of 65 to 80 days.

On October 8, 2021, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.28 for each share of our common stock outstanding. The dividend is payable on November 30, 2021, to shareholders of record on November 15, 2021.

FY22 Outlook

Maximus is establishing fiscal year 2022 guidance. The Company expects revenue to range between $4.40 billion and $4.60 billion. Diluted earnings per share is expected to range between $4.00 and $4.30. Forecasted fiscal year 2022 earnings includes approximately $90 million of amortization of intangible assets, or $1.07 on a diluted per share basis. Excluding amortization, diluted earnings per share is expected to range between $5.07 and $5.37.

Cash flows from operations are expected to range between $275 million and $325 million, and free cash flow to range between $225 million and $275 million in fiscal year 2022. The cash flow projections reflect increased investment in working capital as current liabilities normalize due to payroll tax deferrals, new work maturing, and accruals returning to a more normal level. Additionally, greater investment in accounts receivable is required by an increased revenue projection in fiscal year 2022.

For fiscal year 2022, the effective income tax rate is expected to range between 25% and 26%, weighted average shares outstanding to range between 62.5 million and 62.6 million, absent significant share purchase activity, and interest expense to range between $30 and $33 million.

The outlook for fiscal year 2022 includes assumptions around the timing and level at which core programs return to pre-pandemic levels, most notably those in the U.S. Services Segment. While the timing is uncertain, the Company expects the Public Health Emergency (PHE) to conclude and enable Medicaid redetermination activities to commence during fiscal year 2022.

“Taken together, the market and company operating dynamics anticipated in the second half of FY22 create a positive environment and momentum for the business,” Caswell continued. “These dynamics include not just the anticipated conclusion of the PHE, but also our new startup contracts moving to operations, new organic wins in U.S. Services coming online, the fiscal year 2021 acquisitions maturing in their integration and contribution, and the benefits of a substantial new work pipeline. Throughout the pandemic, we proved our ability to be of service and offer value to governments. We are proud of the resulting new customers, solutions, and capabilities we have gained that offer us a solid foundation to drive future organic growth.”

Caswell concluded with, “Our accomplishments have been made possible by the hard work of our employees, and I offer my sincerest thanks to our more than 35,000 dedicated colleagues that support Maximus globally.”

Non-GAAP Measures and Risk Factors

This release refers to non-GAAP measures and other indicators, including free cash flow, results on a pro forma basis and other non-GAAP measures.

A description of these non-GAAP measures, the reasons why we use and present them, and details as to how they are calculated are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

The presentation of these non-GAAP numbers is not meant to be considered in isolation, nor as alternatives to cash flows from operations, revenue growth, or net income as measures of performance. These non-GAAP financial measures, as determined and presented by us, may not be comparable to related or similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Company’s confidence and strategies, and the Company’s expectations about revenues, results of operations, profitability, future contracts, market opportunities, market demand, or acceptance of the Company’s products are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties such as those related to the impact of the pandemic and our recently-completed acquisitions including but not limited to:

  • Our indebtedness following the completion of the VES acquisition is significant and could adversely affect our business and our ability to meet our obligations.
  • Difficulties in integrating our operations with those of Attain and VES and realizing the expected benefits of these acquisitions.
  • If one or more of these contracts with the VA are terminated or are not renewed on favorable terms or at all, if the VA reduces the number of medical examinations allocated to VES under the contracts or if VES receives an adverse finding or review resulting from an audit or investigation, the benefits of the VES acquisition may be adversely affected.
  • In connection with the acquisitions, we may be required to take write-downs or write-offs, restructuring and impairment, or other charges that could negatively affect our business, assets, liabilities, prospects, outlook, financial condition, and results of operations.
  • The ultimate duration of the pandemic.
  • The threat of further negative pandemic-related impacts.
  • Delays in our core programs returning to normal volumes and operations.
  • The potential impacts resulting from budget challenges with our government clients.
  • The possibility of delayed or missed payments by customers.
  • The potential for further supply chain disruptions impacting IT or safety equipment.
  • The impact of further legislation and government policies on the programs we operate.

These risks could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements. A summary of risk factors can be found in Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2021, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on November 18, 2021.
