Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) — one of 30 companies listed on Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Index — has reported earnings of 73 cents per share for the third quarter of the company’s 2016 fiscal year.
That figure exceeded the consensus Wall Street estimate by 8 cents and does not include approximately $1 million in acquisition-and-integration costs related to SAIC’s buy of Scitor that closed in May.
