“This quarter’s performance establishes that the long-term strategic investments we made in the rapidly growing Cybersecurity and Global Defence markets are delivering returns for Calian.” said Kevin Ford, Calian CEO. “Our initiative to deploy capital to drive long-term value was evident with the impressive performance of our Cybersecurity offerings including a strong start for our recent acquisition of Computex in the United States. Our strong pedigree in the military training market is yielding results in Europe as well as introduction of innovative technology in Canada.”
The second quarter of 2022 carries on the Company’s continued growth through acquisition and margin expansion. The Company signed an additional $160 million in new contracts during the quarter and exits with a strong backlog of $1.3 billion.
“Our performance this quarter was due to our diversified four piston engine. As one-time projects from our COVID response efforts last year wound down, we were able to more than offset these with tremendous growth in our IT and Cyber and Learning segments, at significantly higher gross margin and EBITDA margins,” said Patrick Houston, Calian Chief Financial Officer.
“Our four guiding pillars of growth continue to deliver innovation to new and retained long-time customers as we continue our transformation into an innovative global company,” said Kevin Ford. “Our guidance indicates another record year for Calian.”
