Booz Allen posted a diluted earnings per share of $1.14 and a quarterly dividend of $0.37 per share that is payable on Dec. 2 to shareholders of record as of Nov. 15.

Horacio Rozanski, president and CEO of Booz Allen and a two-time Wash100 awardee, told analysts during an earnings call Friday about the company’s VLT strategy, which stands for velocity, leadership and technology and seeks to accelerate its growth initiatives and create value for shareholders.
“Through VLT, we will capitalize on future market opportunities and leverage our positioning to deploy talent and capital against the nation’s highest priorities,” he added.
Rozanski also cited Booz Allen’s set of priorities, such as continuing hiring efforts to execute its growing backlog, capturing key market opportunities and capitalizing on the upside offered by the company’s acquisitions of Liberty IT Solutions and Tracepoint.
Booz Allen bought Herndon, Virginia-based health information technology consulting firm Liberty IT Solutions for approximately $725 million in June and then moved to acquire the remaining stake in cybersecurity company Tracepoint in September.
