ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CACI International Inc (NYSE MKT: CACI), a leading information solutions and services provider to the federal government, issued its guidance for its Fiscal Year 2017 (FY17) which begins July 1, 2016, and reiterated its Fiscal Year 2016 (FY16) guidance.
Ken Asbury, CACI’s President and CEO said, “Our FY17 guidance shows growth as a result of the successful integration and performance of National Security Solutions (NSS) and strong operating cash flow. We are entering the new fiscal year with a large backlog of business, a healthy pipeline of enduring opportunities, and the capabilities and enhanced position to pursue larger, more complex business where customers are seeking solutions rather than commoditized services.
“As we start FY17, we are confident in our market-focused strategy of winning business, delivering operational excellence, and deploying our capital for growth. We remain focused on providing innovative solutions and services that advance our customers’ most critical missions and produce long-term shareholder value.”
Guidance for Fiscal Year 2017
The table below summarizes our FY17 guidance ranges and represents our views as of June 22, 2016:
(In millions except for tax rate and earnings per share)
Fiscal Year 2017
|Revenue||$4,050 - $4,250|

|Effective corporate tax rate||38.0%|
|Diluted earnings per share||$6.02 - $6.43|

Following are the key factors related to our FY17 guidance:
- We expect that our gross profit margin will range between 33 percent and 34 percent.
- We anticipate that our indirect costs and selling expenses will be 12 percent to 14 percent higher than what we expect in FY16, driven by the additional seven months of NSS.
- Depreciation and amortization is expected to be approximately $66 million.
- Net interest expense is expected to be approximately $50 million.
- We expect that operating cash flow will be greater than $240 million.
- We expect that capital expenditures will total approximately $30 million, higher than in typical years due to a large facility consolidation.
