Fiscal Second Quarter and First Half Fiscal 2021 Highlights

· As compared to the prior year, second quarter revenue increased by 1% to $3.3 billion, operating income increased by 43% to $158 million, the operating margin increased by 140 basis points to 4.8%, net income increased by 82% to $88 million and diluted earnings per share increased by 97% to $0.59.
· Net service revenue2 (NSR) of $1.6 billion in the second quarter increased by 1%, consistent with the Company's expectations.
· The segment adjusted1 operating margin3 on NSR2 increased by 140 basis points to 13.1% for both the second quarter and first half of the year, both record highs for the respective periods and reflective of the actions taken to drive operating efficiencies.
· Adjusted1 EBITDA4 in the second quarter increased by 11% to $202 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share increased by 22% to a new quarterly record of $0.67; both metrics were ahead of the Company's expectations.
· Backlog in the Company's design business increased by 8% over the prior year, which was offset by a decline in the Construction Management business that was consistent with expectations, resulting in a 5% decrease in total backlog to $39.4 billion.
- U.S. federal COVID relief legislation in December and March, combined with improving global economic conditions, have resulted in faster client decision making, a strengthened pipeline of opportunities and strong wins in April.
- As underscored in ENR's most recent rankings, AECOM increased its ranking in the water design market organically to number two, maintained its market leading position in transportation and facilities design, and remains the number one environmental consulting firm, which positions the Company well to capitalize on opportunities in these markets as funding improves.

Cash Flow, Balance Sheet and Capital Allocation Update

· Second quarter operating cash flow was $59 million and free cash flow5 was $3 million; for the first half of the fiscal year, operating cash flow was $66 million and free cash flow was an outflow of $11 million, representing substantially improved cash flow phasing compared to prior fiscal years.
· To date, the Company has executed $755 million of stock repurchases since the beginning of September 2020 that reduced its fully diluted share count by 15.8 million, or approximately 10% of shares outstanding, at an average price of $48 per share, including $125 million since the Company's first quarter earnings call.
· Additionally, the Company executed several transactions over the past year to strengthen its balance sheet and lower its cost of debt, including extending the maturity of its debt through the redemption of senior notes due 2022 and tender of approximately 75% of its senior notes due 2024, as well as creating a sustainability-linked credit facility.
· The Company currently has $700 million of capacity remaining under its $1 billion stock repurchase authorization and remains committed to its capital allocation policy, which includes returning to investors substantially all available cash flow after investments are made in the business and maintaining leverage6 below 3.0x.

Fiscal 2021 Financial Guidance

· AECOM is increasing its diluted adjusted1 EPS guidance to between $2.65 and $2.85, which would reflect 28% growth from fiscal 2020 at the mid-point; this guidance incorporates the Company's first half outperformance, including the benefit of share repurchases completed to-date and a lower expected interest expense related to the Company's recently completed debt refinancing.
- The Company continues to expect adjusted1 EBITDA4 of between $790 million and $830 million, which would reflect 9% growth at the mid-point of the range.
- Other assumptions incorporated into guidance include:
§ An average diluted share count for the full year of approximately 150 million.
§ AECOM Capital earnings of between $5 million to $10 million.
· The Company continues to expect free cash flow5 of between $425 million and $625 million in fiscal 2021, which is consistent with the highly cash generative nature of its Professional Services business and reflects 75% unlevered free cash flow conversion of adjusted EBITDA at the mid-point of the range.

'I am proud of how our teams have come together against a backdrop defined by continued uncertainty and an uneven pace of recovery across the globe,' said Troy Rudd, AECOM's chief executive officer. 'Importantly, market conditions are improving, and our Think and Act Globally strategy is resulting in improved margin performance and earnings growth, and inspires confidence in our increased guidance for this year. As we look ahead, substantial COVID relief funding in the U.S., increasing tax receipts and improving global economic conditions have strengthened our clients' budgets, resulting in accelerating award activity, strong wins in April and a growing pipeline of opportunities.'

'Our teams are collaborating to bring the full strength of our capabilities to bear for our clients around the world through the execution of our Think and Act Globally strategy,' said Lara Poloni, AECOM's president. 'We are ideally suited to capitalize on improving market conditions and to deliver long-term profitable growth, as underscored by ENR's recent design rankings that reaffirmed our number one position in transportation and facilities and saw our position in water improve to number two. In addition, last month we launched our Sustainable Legacies strategy to best align our teams on the ESG opportunities apparent across our business - both internally through the advancement of our own industry-leading net zero and diversity commitments, as well as the opportunity, as the number one ranked environment firm, to advise leading public- and private-sector clients that are increasingly investing in their multi-decade sustainability initiatives.'

'I am very pleased with what we have accomplished in the first half of the fiscal year,' said Gaurav Kapoor, AECOM's chief financial officer. 'We made it a priority to deliver more balanced cash flow in the first half of the year when compared to prior years, and our results reflect strong execution against this priority. Additionally, the actions we have taken to strengthen our balance sheet are accreting immediate value to our shareholders and creating additional capital to invest in our teams, as well as enhancing our ability to consistently return capital to our shareholders.'

Business Segments

Americas

Revenue in the second quarter of $2.5 billion was effectively unchanged from the prior year and net service revenue2 of $924 million declined by 1%.

Operating income increased by 10% over the prior year to $155 million and on an adjusted basis1 operating income increased by 9% to $159 million. The adjusted operating margin on an NSR2 basis of 17.2% was a 160 basis point increase over the prior year and marks a record high for a fiscal second quarter. This performance reflects the benefits of the actions taken to enhance margins through a simplified operating structure and reduced real estate, as well as investments in technology and shared service centers to enhance project delivery efficiencies.

2

International

Revenue in the second quarter was $796 million, a 3% increase from the prior year. Net service revenue2 of $645 million increased by 3%. Market conditions are stabilizing and backlog increased by 16%.

Operating income increased by 28% over the prior year to $46 million. On an adjusted basis1, operating income increased by 26% to $47 million. The adjusted operating margin on an NSR2 basis increased by 130 basis points over the prior year to 7.3%, which set a new quarterly high and reflects a 510 basis point improvement since the beginning of fiscal 2019 when the Company began executing actions to improve margins, including consolidating real estate, implementing a streamlined overhead structure and exiting lower-returning markets and countries.

Discontinued Operations

In October 2020, the Company closed on the sale of its Power construction business and closed on the sale of the Civil construction business in January 2021. Results for discontinued operations included an approximately $39 million loss, primarily reflecting working capital adjustments related to the disposed of businesses.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2021, AECOM had $935 million of total cash and cash equivalents, $2.1 billion of total debt, $1.2 billion of net debt and $1.13 billion in unused capacity under its $1.15 billion revolving credit facility. Gross leverage6 of 2.5x remains below the Company's long-term leverage target of 3.0x.

Tax Rate

The effective tax rate was 27.4% in the second quarter. On an adjusted basis, the effective tax rate was 28.4%. The adjusted tax rate was derived by re-computing the annual effective tax rate on earnings from adjusted net income.7 The adjusted tax expense differs from the GAAP tax expense based on the taxability or deductibility and tax rate applied to each of the adjustments.

Reiterated Long-Term Financial Targets

Following its strong performance in the first half of its fiscal year, AECOM reiterated its long-term financial targets, which include its target to more than double both adjusted1 EPS to at least $4.30 and free cash flow5 to at least $680 million from fiscal 2020 to fiscal 2024, as well as its target to achieve a 15%+ segment3 adjusted1 operating margin and 15%+ return on invested capital (ROIC)8 by fiscal 2024.

Conference Call

AECOM is hosting a conference call tomorrow May 11th at noon Eastern Time, during which management will make a brief presentation focusing on the Company's results, strategies and operating trends. Interested parties can listen to the conference call and view accompanying slides via webcast at https://investors.aecom.com. The webcast will be available for replay following the call.

1 Excludes the impact of non-operating items, such as non-core operating losses and transaction-related expenses, restructuring costs and other items. See Regulation G Information for a complete reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measures.

2 Revenue, net of subcontractor and other direct costs.

3 Reflects segment operating performance, excluding AECOM Capital and G&A.

4 Net income before interest expense, tax expense, depreciation and amortization.

5 Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from equipment disposals.

6 Gross leverage is comprised of EBITDA as defined in the Company's credit agreement dated October 17, 2014, as amended, and total debt on the Company's financial statements.

7 Inclusive of non-controlling interest deduction and adjusted for financing charges in interest expense, the amortization of intangible assets and is based on continuing operations.

8 Return on invested capital, or ROIC, is calculated as the sum of adjusted net income as presented in the Company's Regulation G Information and interest expense, net of interest income, divided by average quarterly invested capital as defined as the sum of attributable shareholder's equity and total debt, less cash and cash equivalents.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains financial information calculated other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ('GAAP'). The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures such as adjusted EPS, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net/operating income, adjusted tax rate, net service revenue and free cash flow provide a meaningful perspective on its business results as the Company utilizes this information to evaluate and manage the business. We use adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS, adjusted net/operating income and adjusted tax rate to exclude the impact of non-operating items, such as amortization expense, taxes and non-core operating losses to aid investors in better understanding our core performance results. We use free cash flow to represent the cash generated after capital expenditures to maintain our business. We present net service revenue to exclude subcontractor costs from revenue to provide investors with a better understanding of our operational performance. We present segment adjusted operating margin to reflect segment operating performance of our Americas and International segments, excluding AECOM Capital.

Our non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for financial information determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures is found in the Regulation G Information tables at the back of this release.
