As a result of strong operating performance on a number of programs throughout our operations, particularly on our fixed price contracts, we are raising our net income and diluted earnings per share guidance. In addition, we are raising the lower end of our annual revenue guidance range due to the increased certainty we have regarding our operations as we approach our fourth fiscal quarter. Investors are reminded that the recent Tax Reform legislation is expected to add approximately $100 million to net income, which was incorporated in our previous guidance issued on January 31, 2018 and is also reflected in the current guidance. The table below summarizes our FY18 expectations and represents our views as of March 18, 2018.
