Leidos Holdings has posted a 14.7% year-over-year jump in quarterly revenue driven by organic growth across all business segments.

The company’s total revenue for the first three month period of the year amounted to $3.32bn. The figure was $2.89bn in the same quarter of the previous year.

The increase was primarily attributed to programme wins, a net increase in volumes on certain programmes, as well as growth achieved from earlier acquisitions.

Leidos’ operating income for the quarter was $308m, a 60.4% jump compared to $192m in Q1 2020.

The operating income margin also increased from 6.6% to 9.3%.

In Q1 2021, the company’s Defense Solutions arm recorded revenue of $1.96bn. The figure increased by $253m, or 14.8%, compared to the corresponding period a year ago.
