CACI International (CACI) Q1 Earnings Beat, Sales Up Y/Y

CACI International CACI reported first-quarter fiscal 2022 results, wherein earnings beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate while revenues matched the same.

The company reported non-GAAP earnings of $4.24 per share beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $4.01 per share. The bottom line improved 2.4% from the year-ago quarter’s figure of $4.14 per share.

This upsurge in earnings was primarily driven by a reduced number of shares outstanding. Reduction in shares outstanding can be attributed to the stock buyback worth $500 million under the accelerated share repurchase program announced in March this year.

In the first quarter of 2022, CACI reported revenues of $1.49 billion, in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate. The top line increased 2.2% from the prior-year quarter. Organic revenues grew 2% on a year-over-year basis.
