RESTON, Va., February 28, 2023—ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a global consulting and technology services provider, reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.

 

1


Commenting on the results, John Wasson, chair and chief executive officer, said,Fourth quarter results capped a record year for ICF, highlighted by double-digit growth across all key financial metrics, record contract awards and robust operating cash flow. Year-on-year revenue growth in the fourth quarter was led by our federal and state and local clients and our commercial energy work, which together represented more than 85% of total revenues for the period.

 

“In 2022, ICF made significant strides in executing on existing contracts and capturing opportunities in our high-growth markets, namely: IT modernization/digital transformation, public health, disaster management, utility consulting, and climate, environment and infrastructure services. These markets accounted for approximately 75% of our Service Revenue as we exited 2022, up from 55% at the end of 2020. Our strategic decision to invest in these markets organically and through acquisitions has been a key element in margin expansion as well. Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Service Revenue expanded considerably in 2022 to 14.9%, which represents a 60-basis point increase from the prior year and is 120 basis points ahead of 2020 levels. Margin expansion has been driven by a favorable business mix, continued high utilization levels, lower facility costs and the benefits of greater scale.

 

“Contract wins were at record levels for both the fourth quarter and full year. Over 75% of our 2022 contract awards represented new business, underscoring how well aligned our capabilities are with the current spending priorities of our government and commercial clients. Our business development pipeline was over $8.5 billion at 2022 year-end, 20% higher than a year ago, in part due to revenue synergy opportunities related to the two larger acquisitions we completed since the end of 2021.”

 

Fourth Quarter 2022 Results

Fourth quarter 2022 total revenue increased 22.6% to $475.6 million, from $388.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Service Revenue increased 24.0% year-over-year to $339.1 million, from $273.4 million reported in the prior year’s fourth quarter. Net income totaled $8.9 million and diluted EPS was $0.47 per share, inclusive of $13.6 million, or $0.72 per share in tax-effected charges, the majority of which represented the company’s decision to reduce the facility footprint associated with its commercial marketing services. Net income in the prior year’s fourth quarter was $12.1 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, inclusive of $0.43 in tax-effected special charges.

 

Non-GAAP EPS increased 31% to $1.56 from $1.19 per share in the comparable prior year quarter. EBITDA was $36.9 million, 38.7% above the $26.6 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA1was $55.2 million, a 45.1% increase from the $38.0 million reported in the comparable quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Service Revenue was 16.3%, an increase of 240 basis points from the 13.9% reported last year.

 

Full Year 2022 Results

 

2022 total revenue was $1.78 billion, an increase of 14.6% from $1.55 billion reported in the previous year.

Full year 2022 net income was $64.2 million, or $3.38 per diluted share, inclusive of $24.9 million, or $1.31 per share of tax-effected special charges, of which the overwhelming majority were facility, severance, and M&A-related charges. This compares to net income of $71.1 million reported in 2021, or $3.72 per diluted share, inclusive of $0.63 of tax-effected special charges.

Summary and Outlook

 

“Fourth quarter results represented a strong finish to another record year for ICF, and together with our robust backlog and business development pipeline provide considerable positive momentum for 2023.

 

“Specifically, we expect full year 2023 Service Revenue to be in the range of $1.405 billion and $1.465 billion, representing year-on-year growth of 11.6% at the midpoint. Pass-through revenues are anticipated at approximately 28% of total revenue in 2023, implying total revenue of $1.930 billion to $2.0 billion. EBITDA

5


is estimated to range from $210 million to $220 million, and adjusted EBITDA on Service Revenue is expected to be approximately 15%. GAAP EPS is projected at $4.75 to $5.05, exclusive of special charges, and non-GAAP EPS is expected to range from $6.15 to $6.45, representing increases of 45% and 9.2%, respectively over 2022 at the midpoints. Operating cash flow is expected to be approximately $150 million in 2023.

 

“As anticipated, we were able to utilize our robust cash flow to repay approximately $145 million of debt in the fourth quarter of 2022, bringing our Adjusted Leverage Ratio1 down to 2.86 at year-end and increasing the fixed-rate hedged percentage of our outstanding debt. Additionally, we are implementing multi-year tax strategies that we anticipate will allow us to maintain an annual tax rate of approximately 23.5%. These initiatives support our future growth plans as we build upon our expanded capabilities to capture the significant opportunities on the horizon.

 

“At ICF, our business, environmental and social responsibilities are intertwined. In 2022, over 85% of the company’s revenues represented our work on programs that create a direct positive impact on society—from our services supporting energy savings, carbon reduction and disaster recovery to those supporting health, education, and social justice programs. We are proud of the positive impact that ICF is making every day and encourage our shareholders to visit our website to learn more about our commitments,” Mr. Wasson concluded.

 

_______________________

[1] Non-GAAP EPS, Service Revenue, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Service Revenue are non-GAAP measurements. A reconciliation of all non-GAAP measurements to the most applicable GAAP number is set forth below. Special charges are items that were included within our consolidated statements of comprehensive income but are not indicative of ongoing performance and have been presented net of applicable U.S. GAAP taxes. Adjusted Leverage Ratio is based on 2022 reported EBITDA, adjusted for the trailing-twelve-month pro forma EBITDA from the SemanticBits and Blanton acquisitions and one-time facility impairment charges. The presentation of non-GAAP measurements may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Caution Concerning Forward-looking Statements

Statements that are not historical facts and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties are "forward-looking statements" as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements may concern our current expectations about our future results, plans, operations and prospects and involve certain risks, including those related to the government contracting industry generally; our particular business, including our dependence on contracts with U.S. federal government agencies; our ability to acquire and successfully integrate businesses; and the effects of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and related federal, state and local government actions and reactions on the health of our staff and that of our clients, the continuity of our and our clients' operations, our results of operations and our outlook. These and other factors that could cause our actual results to differ from those indicated in forward-looking statements that are included in the "Risk Factors" section of our securities filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The forward-looking statements included herein are only made as of the date hereof, and we specifically disclaim any obligation to update these statements in the future.

Note on Forward-looking Non-GAAP Measures

The company does not reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures, due to the variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections and because not all of the information necessary for a quantitative reconciliation of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures (such as the effect of share-based compensation or the impact of future extraordinary or non-recurring events like acquisitions) is available to the company without unreasonable effort. For the same reasons, the company is unable to estimate the probable significance of the unavailable information. The company provides forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures that it believes will be achievable, but it cannot accurately predict all of the components of the adjusted calculations, and the U.S. GAAP financial measures may be materially different than the non-GAAP financial measures.

(2) These tables provide reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most applicable GAAP numbers. While we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful in evaluating our financial information, they should be considered supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may define similarly titled non-GAAP measures differently and, accordingly, care should be exercised in understanding how we define these measures.

 

 

 

 

 

(3) Subcontractor and other direct costs is direct costs excluding direct labor and fringe costs.

 

 

 

 

 

(4) The calculation of EBITDA for the three months and the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 has been revised to conform to the current period calculation of EBITDA. Specifically, interest income of $0.1 million and $0.3 million was reclassified from "Other expense" to "Interest, net" on the consolidated statements of comprehensive income.

 

 

 

 

 

(5) Represents impairment of right-of-use lease assets associated with certain operating leases ceased to be used by us. The amount for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2021 have been revised to include $0.3 million and $0.3 million, respectively, in losses on disposal of fixed assets related to the leases to conform to the current presentation.

 

 

 

 

 

(6) These costs consist primarily of consultants and other outside third-party costs and integration costs associated with our acquisitions and/or potential acquisitions and divestitures.

 

 

 

 

 

(7) These costs are mainly due to involuntary employee termination benefits for Company officers or groups of employees who have been terminated as part of a consolidation or reorganization.

 

 

 

 

 

(8) These costs are exit costs associated with terminated leases or full office closures. The exit costs include charges incurred under a contractual obligation that existed as of the date of the accrual and for which we will (i) continue to pay until the contractual obligation is satisfied but with no economic benefit to us or (ii) we contractually terminated the obligation and ceased utilizing the facilities.

 

 

 

 

 

(9) These costs are additional rent as a result of us taking possession of our new corporate headquarters in Reston, Virginia, during the fourth quarter of 2021 as well as losses from disposal of fixed assets that we recognized as a result of our transfer to Reston.

 

 

 

 

 

(10) These costs relate to equity awards under the departing officer’s severance agreement. As a result of the employment agreement, the departing officer was able to maintain certain equity awards beyond his retirement date, including performance-based awards that are subject to changes until they vest.

 

 

 

 

 

(11) These costs include legal and structuring fees related to our 2022 Master Receivables Purchase Agreement with MUFG Bank, Ltd.put in place for the sale of our receivables from time-to-time.

 

 

 

 

 

(12) EBITDA Margin Percent and Adjusted EBITDA Margin Percent were calculated by dividing the non-GAAP measure by the corresponding revenue.

 

 

 

 

 

(13) Income tax effects were calculated using the effective tax rate, adjusted for discrete items, if any, of 25.5% and 28.9% for the three months ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and 28.0% and 28.9% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
