However, on a more comparable basis, revenue declined by 7% in constant currency. “In our commercial business, we are seeing early signs of improvement in book-to-bill and pipeline growth as a result of our investments in salespeople, sales support and next-generation IT services offerings,” said Mike Lawrie, president and CEO. “The Federal business is delivering strong profitability and margin growth amidst uncertainty in government spending. And our cost takeout actions across the company are contributing to our earnings growth.” Financial Highlights *EPS from continuing operations of $0.93 for the second quarter, flat sequentially and an increase of $0.24 from the second quarter of fiscal 2013. *Net income was $209 million for the second quarter, an increase of $50 million sequentially and $71 million from the prior year. *Operating income was $338 million, an increase of $29 million sequentially and $76 million when compared with the prior year.

Excluding $69 million from a divested IT staffing business in the year-ago period, GBS revenue decreased by 7% in constant currency.

GIS revenue was $1.12 billion in the quarter, a 3% decrease in constant currency from $1.16 billion in the prior year as the company terminated or restructured less profitable contracts. Operating margin excluding restructuring increased to 9.3% from 7.1% in the prior year as the business benefitted from cost takeout initiatives and better contract performance. GIS reported new business awards of $800 million in the quarter.

Revenue in the quarter was impacted by the continuing Federal budget uncertainties and delays in new contract awards.

flow, to the respective most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. CSC management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations as they provide another measure of the Company's profitability and ability to service its debt, and are considered important measures by financial analysts covering CSC and its peers. Management uses operating income to evaluate financial performance and it is one of the measures used in assessing management performance. One of the limitations associated with the use of operating income (as compared to reported earnings) is that it does not reflect the complete financial results of the Company. CSC compensates for these limitations by providing reconciliation between operating income and income from continuing operations, before taxes. Management uses free cash flow as one of the factors in reviewing the overall performance of the business. Management compensates for the limitations of this non-GAAP measure by also reviewing the GAAP measures of operating, investing and financing cash flows as well as debt levels measured by the debt-to-total capitalization ratio. GAAP Reconciliations Operating Income (preliminary and unaudited) CSC defines operating income as revenue less costs of services, depreciation and amortization expense, restructuring costs and segment selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense, excluding corporate G&A. Operating margin is defined as operating income as a percentage of revenue. Pre-tax margin is defined as income from continuing operations, before taxes as a percentage of revenue. A reconciliation of consolidated operating income to income from continuing operations, before taxes is as follows: Quarter Ended Six Months Ended September September September September (Amounts in 27, 28, 27, 28, millions) 2013 2012 2013 2012 Operating income $ 338 $ 262 $ 647 $ 413 Corporate G&A (68 ) (70 ) (132 ) (130 ) Interest expense (35 ) (46 ) (74 ) (90 ) Interest income 3 5 7 10 Other income (22 ) 11 (21 ) (1 ) (expense), net Income from continuing $ 216 $ 162 $ 427 $ 202 operations before taxes Operating margin 10.6 % 7.4 % 10.0 % 5.8 % Pre-tax margin 6.8 % 4.6 % 6.6 % 2.8 % Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (preliminary and unaudited) CSC defines EBIT as revenue less costs of services, selling, general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, restructuring costs, and other income (expense). EBIT margin is defined as EBIT as a percentage of revenue. Reconciliation of EBIT to income from continuing operations is as follows: Quarter Ended Six Months Ended September September September September (Amounts in 27, 28, 27, 28, millions) 2013 2012 2013 2012 Earnings before $ 248 $ 203 $ 494 $ 282 interest and taxes Interest expense (35 ) (46 ) (74 ) (90 ) Interest income 3 5 7 10 Income taxes (70 ) (46 ) (136 ) (65 ) Income from continuing $ 146 $ 116 $ 291 $ 137 operations EBIT margin 7.8 % 5.8 % 7.7 % 3.9 % Free Cash Flow (preliminary and unaudited) CSC defines free cash flow as equal to the sum of (1) operating cash flows, (2) investing cash flows, excluding business acquisitions, dispositions and investments (including short-term investments and purchase or sale of available for sale securities), and (3) payments on capital leases and other long-term asset financings.
