Company Performance and Highlights
Delivering Significant Returns to Stockholders
In fiscal year 2017, we continued to deliver strong returns to our stockholders through appreciation in our stock price, the payment of regular dividends, and share repurchases.
TSRNOFOOTNOTE.JPG
Note: Total shareholder return assumes dividends are reinvested. In fiscal year 2018, we will no longer show the DJ US Computer Services Index for comparative purposes. The Russell 1000 and S&P Software & Services Select Industry Indices represent better comparator groups for relative TSR performance to Booz Allen Hamilton.

Our stock price increased by 17% and total stockholder return was over 19% during fiscal year 2017.
During fiscal year 2017, we declared and paid $92.9 million in recurring dividends to stockholders—three regular dividends of $0.15 per share each, and one regular dividend of $0.17 per share.
The dividend rate was increased by 13%, effective in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017.
During fiscal year 2017, we repurchased approximately $46.4 million of shares.

Fiscal year 2017 marked the second consecutive year of top-line revenue growth.
Continued focus on investments in markets, capabilities, and people is positioning Booz Allen Hamilton for sustainable quality growth.

Total backlog increased 15% to $13.6 billion
Free cash flow was $328.4 million in fiscal year 2017
Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share, and Free Cash Flow may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies in our industry and are not recognized measures under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP. A reconciliation between these non-GAAP financial measures and the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP can be found in Appendix A to this proxy statement.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND GENERAL INFORMATION CONCERNING THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND ITS COMMITTEES
Our Board of Directors
The Board is responsible for providing governance and oversight over the strategy, risk, operations, and management of the Company. The primary focus of the Board is promoting stockholder value by fostering the long-term success of the Company. The Board is responsible for supporting and overseeing management, to which the Board has delegated the responsibility to manage the day-to-day strategy and operations of the Company.
The Board generally holds four regular meetings per year, and special meetings as necessary. The Board meets in executive session during each regular meeting; non-management directors also typically meet in executive sessions during each regular meeting. Consistent with the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines, Mr. Clare was appointed by the non-management directors to serve as the Presiding Director on May 23, 2013. The Presiding Director presides over executive sessions at which the Chairman is not present. At least annually, independent directors also meet in executive session during a regular Board meeting.
The Board and its committees establish annual calendars of activities to guide the development of their agendas during the year.  All directors are invited to propose agenda topics when the annual calendars are established as well as in advance of each regular Board meeting. In addition, directors are encouraged to raise topics that are not on a meeting agenda or suggest topics for future agendas.  Each director is provided written materials in advance of each meeting, and the Board and its committees provide feedback to and make requests of management at each of their meetings.
Corporate Governance Guidelines
As noted above, the Board has adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines. The Board and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee are responsible for reviewing and amending these guidelines as they deem necessary and appropriate. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for overseeing the system of corporate governance of the Company. The Corporate Governance Guidelines are available without charge on the Investor Relations portion of our website, www.boozallen.com.
Codes of Conduct and Ethics
Our website also includes the Company’s Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, which is applicable to our directors and all employees, and the Company's Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers, each of which was adopted by the Board and each of which may be accessed without charge. The Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers applies to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Controller and any other persons performing similar functions. We will disclose on the Investor Relations portion of our website any amendments to the Code of Business Ethics and Conduct or Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers and any waiver granted to an executive officer or director under these codes. In fiscal year 2017, no such waivers were sought or granted. The information found on the Company's website is not part of this proxy statement nor is it incorporated into any other filings the Company makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
Board Meetings and Attendance
Directors are expected to attend each Board meeting, each meeting of the committees on which they serve, and the Annual Meeting of Stockholders. During fiscal year 2017, the Board held four meetings. Each of our directors who served as a director during fiscal year 2017 attended 75% or more of the aggregate total number of meetings of the Board. In addition, each of our directors, except for Mr. Johnson, attended 75% or more of the aggregate total number of meetings of the Board Committees on which he or she served. On average, director attendance at Board and Board committee meetings was approximately 98% and 94%, respectively, during fiscal year 2017. All directors who served at the time of our 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders attended that meeting.

Board Leadership Structure
As noted in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, the Board has no policy with respect to the separation of the offices of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The Board believes that it is important to retain its flexibility to allocate the responsibilities of the offices of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer in any way that is in the best interests of the Company at a given point in time. The Board has concluded that it is currently in the best interest of the stockholders for Dr. Shrader to continue his service as Chairman, retaining his four decades of experience at the Company with a focus on continuing to build stockholder value, managing risk, and supporting the Company's executive management. In his role as President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Rozanski will continue to work closely with the Board in establishing the overall strategy and direction of the Company, and to effectively communicate our strategy to our stockholders, clients, and employees.
Succession Planning and Talent Reviews

The Board believes that executive management succession planning is one of its most important responsibilities. Accordingly, the Board regularly undertakes executive management succession planning and talent reviews. On an annual basis, the Chairman leads the Board in an in-depth discussion concerning Chief Executive Officer succession and the Chief Executive Officer leads the Board in a discussion concerning senior management succession. Chief Executive Officer succession is also discussed by the Board in an executive session outside the presence of any management directors. Management also updates the Board on key talent indicators such as recruiting and retention for the overall employee population throughout the year.
Risk Oversight

The Board and its committees play an important role in overseeing the Company's risk management processes, and risk management considerations form a regular element of the Board's dialogue with management. One of the primary tools that facilitates the Board’s oversight of risk (and actions being taken to mitigate it) is the Company’s Enterprise Risk Management Framework, or ERM Framework. Under the leadership of our President and Chief Executive Officer, the ERM Framework is designed to enable effective and efficient identification of risks and facilitate the evaluation of risks as an integral part of decision making. As part of the ERM Framework, the Company:

Identifies and classifies into tiers the top risks facing the business;
Discusses and evaluates the Company’s risk appetite with respect to different types of operational risk; and
Develops action plans to mitigate and monitor risk.

The process for regularly updating the ERM Framework enables effective and efficient identification of risks and facilitates the evaluation of risks as an integral part of decision making. Under the ERM Framework, our President and Chief Executive Officer leads an annual risk identification, analysis, and mitigation discussion with the Board and prepares a quarterly update for the Board of our enterprise risks. In addition to updates provided through the ERM Framework, the Board receives other information and briefings as part of its risk oversight role. During the course of the year, the lead management official with responsibility for each of our major markets provides a comprehensive overview of the market, including risks and challenges. The Board is also regularly updated by other elements of management, including the Chief Financial Officer, Chief Legal Officer and Chief Administrative Officer concerning significant risks facing the Company and processes that have been implemented to mitigate these risks.

In addition to this dialogue between management and the entire Board, the Board's committees have more specific roles concerning elements of the Company's risk management processes.

Audit Committee : The Audit Committee is regularly updated by the Chief Legal Officer, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, Director of Internal Audit, Chief Information Officer, and Chief Information Security Officer and receives regular reports concerning the status of the Company's ethics and compliance program, internal controls over financial reporting and other operational compliance areas, and significant communications from the Company's regulators. The Audit Committee also leads the Board's efforts with respect to the oversight of cybersecurity risk.

14



Compensation Committee : The Compensation Committee is responsible for overseeing risks related to the Company's executive compensation policies and practices.
Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee : The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee oversees risks arising from the Company's governance processes.
Annual Board Performance Assessment

The Board and each of the Audit, Compensation, and Nominating and Corporate Governance committees perform an annual assessment of their operations and effectiveness, and set goals for the future. The core of this process involves our Secretary interviewing each director individually. The comments of the directors are compiled and presented, as applicable, to the Chairman, the full Board or the appropriate committee. The key matters to be addressed are identified, and these matters become part of future agendas for the Board and its committees.
Board Independence
Nine of our current directors are independent under our Corporate Governance Guidelines and applicable New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") listing standards. In order for a director to be considered independent, the Board must determine, after consideration of all relevant facts and circumstances, that he or she has no material relationship with the Company directly or as a partner, stockholder, or officer of an organization that has a relationship with the Company. The independence criteria adopted by the Board are set forth in the Company's Corporate Governance Guidelines.
The Board has previously determined that Messrs. Clare, Fujiyama, Odeen, Gaumond, Johnson, and Rossotti, and Mses. Amble, Barnes, and McClain are independent under the independence criteria for directors established by the NYSE and the independence criteria adopted by the Board. As a result, we currently have a majority of independent directors and satisfy the applicable rule of the NYSE. Mr. Rozanski is an employee of the Company and is not independent under the NYSE listing standards or our Corporate Governance Guidelines. In addition, Dr. Shrader was an employee within the past three years and is not considered independent under the NYSE listing standards or our Corporate Governance Guidelines, which can be found in the investor relations portion of our website, www.boozallen.com.
Selection of Nominees for Election to the Board
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee recommends to the Board appropriate criteria for the selection of new directors based on the strategic needs of the Company and the Board, and periodically reviews the criteria adopted by the Board and, if deemed desirable, recommends to the Board changes to such criteria. The Board seeks members from diverse backgrounds who combine a broad spectrum of experience and expertise with a reputation for integrity. While the Board does not have a formal policy with respect to diversity, it is a critical factor the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee considers when recommending director nominees to the Board. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee defines diversity in an expansive manner to be reflective of the diversity of the Company and representative of the clients it serves. Exceptional candidates who do not meet all of these criteria may still be considered. The Board seeks director candidates who have experience in positions with a high degree of responsibility are, or have been, leaders in the companies or institutions with which they are, or were, affiliated, and are selected based upon the contributions they can make to the Company.
Our Commitment to Board Diversity
Consistent with the Company's long-standing commitment in this regard, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is focused on enhancing the diversity of the Board and works actively to achieve this goal, as reflected below:

Board Tenure
We believe that Board tenure diversity is important and directors with many years of service provide the Board with a deep knowledge of our Company, while newer directors lend fresh perspectives. The chart below reflects the Board tenure of our current directors, which on average is approximately six years.
Board Tenure is Diversified

FY15PROXYST_CHART-07289A02.JPG
Process for Stockholders to Recommend Director Nominees
Stockholders wishing to nominate a candidate for director must provide written notice in care of the Secretary, to 8283 Greensboro Drive, McLean, Virginia 22102, not fewer than 90 days nor more than 120 days prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting. Our bylaws set forth the requirements for direct nomination of an individual by a stockholder for election to the Board.
There is no difference in the manner in which the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee evaluates a nominee for director designated by our Chief Executive Officer or recommended by a stockholder.
Director Orientation and Continuing Education

New directors are provided a multi-phase orientation generally timed to coincide with our Board meetings as part of our effort to integrate them in their role as directors and familiarize them with the Company. Orientation sessions are led by members of management and are focused on various elements of our business strategy, client service offerings, internal business operations, and corporate governance, among other areas. During the course of the year, representatives of management brief the Board on topics designed to provide directors a deeper understanding of various aspects of our business such as applicable legal developments, ethics and compliance programs, and the evolving regulatory environment. In addition, the Board holds an annual business strategy session with management. Directors are also encouraged to participate in continuing education programs to better understand and execute their duties and responsibilities.
Communications with the Board
Stockholders, or other interested third parties, who wish to contact our Board may send written correspondence, in care of the Secretary, to 8283 Greensboro Drive, McLean, Virginia 22102. Communications may be addressed to an individual director, to the non-management directors as a group, or to the Board as a whole, marked as confidential or otherwise. Communications not submitted confidentially, which are addressed to directors that discuss business or other matters relevant to the activities of our Board, will be preliminarily reviewed by the office of the Secretary and then distributed either in summary form or by delivering a copy of the communication. Communications marked as confidential will be distributed, without review by the office of the Secretary, to the director, or group of directors, to whom they are addressed. With respect to other correspondence received by the Company that is addressed to one or more directors, the Board has requested that the following items not be distributed to directors, because they generally fall into the purview of management, rather than the Board: junk mail and mass mailings, service complaints and inquiries, résumés and other forms of job inquiries, solicitations for charitable donations, surveys, business solicitations, and advertisements.

Board Committees
Our Board has four standing committees: an Executive Committee, an Audit Committee, a Compensation Committee, and a Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The charter of each committee is available without charge on the Investor Relations portion of our website, www.boozallen.com.
The following chart identifies the members and chair of each standing committee, as well as related information.
BODCOMMITTEECHART.JPG
The following is a brief description of our committees.
The Executive Committee
Our Executive Committee is responsible, among its other duties and responsibilities, for assisting our Board in fulfilling its responsibilities. Our Executive Committee is responsible for approving certain corporate actions and transactions, including acquisitions of assets other than in the ordinary course of business and outside hires of certain senior officers or the termination of such employees. The members of our Executive Committee are Dr. Shrader (Chairman) and Messrs. Clare, Fujiyama, and Rozanski. The Executive Committee met once during fiscal year 2017 as well as acted by written consent.
The Audit Committee
Our Audit Committee is responsible, among its other duties and responsibilities, for overseeing our accounting and financial reporting processes, the audits of our financial statements, the qualifications and independence of our independent registered public accounting firm, the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, and the performance of our internal audit function and independent registered public accounting firm. Our Audit Committee reviews and assesses the qualitative aspects of our financial reporting, our processes to manage business and financial risks, and our compliance with significant applicable legal, ethical, and regulatory requirements. Our Audit Committee is directly responsible for the appointment, compensation, retention, and oversight of our independent registered public accounting firm.
The members of our Audit Committee are Messrs. Gaumond (Chairman), Johnson, and Rossotti, and Ms. Amble, each of whom is an independent director as required by NYSE listing standards and Rule 10A-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. The Board has determined that each member of our Audit

17



Committee is financially literate and has determined that Messrs. Gaumond and Rossotti and Ms. Amble are each an “audit committee financial expert” as such term is defined under Item 407(d)(5) of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act. During a portion of the Company’s fiscal year, Ms. Amble served on the audit committees of four public companies (inclusive of our Audit Committee) and in accordance with our Audit Committee Charter, the Board discussed this simultaneous service with Ms. Amble, including the demands and time commitment attendant to such simultaneous service, and determined that such simultaneous service would not impair the ability of Ms. Amble to effectively serve on the Board and the Audit Committee. Currently, Ms. Amble serves on the audit committees of three public companies (inclusive of our Audit Committee).
The Audit Committee met six times during fiscal year 2017.
The Compensation Committee
Our Compensation Committee is responsible for, among its other duties and responsibilities, reviewing and approving all forms of compensation to be provided to, and employment letter agreements with, the executives and directors of our Company and its subsidiaries (including the Chief Executive Officer), establishing and reviewing the general compensation philosophy of our Company and its subsidiaries, and reviewing, approving, and overseeing the administration of the employee benefits plans of our Company and its subsidiaries.
The members of our Compensation Committee are Messrs. Odeen (Chairman), Clare, and Fujiyama, and Mses. Barnes and McClain, each of whom is an independent director as required by NYSE listing standards. The Compensation Committee charter requires that at least two members of the Compensation Committee must satisfy the requirements of “non-employee director” for purposes of Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act. Each of the members currently satisfies these requirements.
The Compensation Committee has the authority to delegate any of its responsibilities to subcommittees as the Compensation Committee may deem appropriate, provided that the subcommittees are composed entirely of directors satisfying the independence standards then applicable to the Compensation Committee generally. The Compensation Committee has delegated to a Rule 16b-3 subcommittee its responsibility under the Company's Second Amended and Restated Equity Incentive Plan with respect to the approval of acquisitions and dispositions of Company securities by officers and directors of the Company for purposes of Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act. The members of the Rule 16b-3 subcommittee are Messrs. Odeen and Fujiyama. In addition, the Compensation Committee has delegated to a Section 162(m) subcommittee its authority to approve performance-based compensation for purposes of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or the Code. The Compensation Committee determined it would be advisable to establish this subcommittee to review and approve certain compensation that is intended to be performance-based compensation for purposes of Section 162(m) of the Code. The members of the Section 162(m) subcommittee are Mr. Odeen and Ms. McClain, each of whom satisfies the requirements of an "outside director" for purposes of Section 162(m) of the Code.
The Compensation Committee has not engaged a compensation consultant; however, the Compensation Committee is briefed by management, which consults with ClearBridge Compensation Group, LLC, or ClearBridge. During fiscal year 2017, ClearBridge provided data analyses, market assessments regarding executive compensation, and counsel regarding proxy disclosure and preparation of related reports. In addition, Towers Watson provided advice primarily on the design of our non-qualified deferred compensation plan during fiscal year 2017. The Compensation Committee assessed the independence of each of ClearBridge and Towers Watson and concluded that neither ClearBridge's nor Towers Watson's work for the Company raised any conflict of interest issues.
Each of our executive officers, who collectively comprise our Leadership Team, participates in the discussion and consideration of compensation to be awarded to all executives. See “Compensation Discussion and Analysis—Setting Executive Compensation.”
The Compensation Committee met five times during fiscal year 2017.



18



Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee
Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for, among its other duties and responsibilities, identifying and recommending candidates to the Board for election to our Board (including candidates proposed by stockholders), reviewing the composition of the Board and its committees, developing and recommending to the Board corporate governance guidelines that are applicable to us, and overseeing Board and Board committee evaluations.
The members of our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee are Mr. Clare (Chairman), Ms. Barnes, Mr. Odeen, and Ms. McClain, each of whom is an independent director as required by NYSE listing standards.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee met four times during fiscal year 2017.
Director Compensation
Directors who are employed by us do not receive any additional compensation for their services as directors. Previously, we did not provide compensation for directors employed by Carlyle for their services as directors, but following the sale by Explorer Coinvest LLC ("Coinvest"), an entity controlled indirectly by senior employees of Carlyle, of its remaining Class A shares in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, the Compensation Committee has approved compensation for such directors from and after January 1, 2017. The Compensation Committee reviews director compensation on an annual basis. In July 2016, with assistance from ClearBridge, the Committee reviewed director compensation data for the peer group used for benchmarking executive compensation and the general market. Based on that review, the Compensation Committee approved a $10,000 increase in the annual equity award.
Fiscal Year 2017 Compensation: Director compensation for fiscal year 2017 included the following:

Annual Amount
Annual Board Chairman Retainer
$290,000

This column represents the grant date fair value of the stock awards granted to our directors in fiscal year 2017. Where the stock awards were the result of voluntary elections to receive cash retainers in stock, the value reflected in the Stock Awards column represents only the excess of the fair market value of the stock awards over the cash retainer amount paid if in the form of stock. The aggregate fair value of the awards was computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718 using the valuation methodology and assumptions set forth in Note 17 to our financial statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017, which are incorporated by reference herein, modified to exclude any forfeiture assumptions related to service-based vesting conditions. The amounts in this column do not reflect the value, if any, that ultimately may be realized by the director.

Director Ownership Guidelines
Equity ownership guidelines for all of our non-employee directors are in place to further align their interests to those of our stockholders. Each of our non-employee directors has five years from the date of commencement of his/her service on the Board to achieve equity ownership with a value equivalent to four times his/her annual retainer. In calculating a director’s ownership, Class A common stock, and vested in-the-money options and vested and unvested restricted stock issued under the Equity Incentive Plan will be considered owned by the non-employee

20



director. Each of our directors who has served on the Board for five years or more has regularly exceeded and currently exceeds the equity ownership guidelines. For a description of the guidelines applicable to executive officers, see our CD&A beginning on page 27.

SECURITY OWNERSHIP INFORMATION
Security Ownership of Directors and Executive Officers
The following table indicates information as of June 8, 2017 regarding the beneficial ownership of our Class A common stock by each of our directors, each of the named executive officers, and all of our directors and executive officers as a group. 
The percentages shown are based on 148,352,523 shares of Class A common stock outstanding as of June 8, 2017. In August 2014, we converted all issued and outstanding shares of Class B non-voting common stock and Class C restricted common stock into shares of Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis. Class A common stock is entitled to one vote per share on all matters voted on by our stockholders.
The amounts and percentages owned are reported on the basis of the SEC’s rules governing the determination of beneficial ownership of securities. The SEC’s rules generally attribute beneficial ownership of securities to each person who possesses, either solely or shared with others, the voting power or investment power, which includes the power to dispose of those securities. The rules also treat as outstanding all shares of capital stock that a person would receive upon exercise of stock options or warrants held by that person that are immediately exercisable or exercisable within 60 days. These shares are deemed to be outstanding and to be beneficially owned by the person holding those options for the purpose of computing the number of shares beneficially owned and the percentage ownership of that person, but they are not treated as outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person. Under these rules, one or more persons may be a deemed beneficial owner of the same securities and a person may be deemed a beneficial owner of securities to which such person has no economic interest. Unless otherwise indicated, the persons or entities identified in this table have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares shown as beneficially owned by them, subject to applicable community property laws.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Policies and Procedures for Related Person Transactions
We adopted a written related person transactions policy pursuant to which related persons, namely our executive officers, directors, and principal stockholders, and their immediate family members, are not permitted to enter into certain transactions, or materially modify or amend an ongoing transaction, with us, in which the amount involved exceeds $120,000, without the consent of our Audit Committee or any designated member of the Audit Committee. Any request for us to enter into or materially modify or amend certain such transactions is required to be presented to our Audit Committee for review, consideration, and approval. All of our directors and executive officers are required to report to our Audit Committee any such related person transaction. In approving or rejecting the proposed transaction, our Audit Committee will take into account, among other factors it deems appropriate, whether the proposed related person transaction is on terms no less favorable than terms generally available to an unaffiliated third party under the same or similar circumstances, the extent of the related person’s interest in the transaction and, if applicable, the impact on a director’s independence. Under the policy, if we should discover related person transactions that have not been approved, our Audit Committee will be notified and will determine the appropriate action, including ratification, rescission, or amendment of the transaction.
Related Person Transactions
Stockholders Agreement
In connection with the acquisition of Booz Allen Hamilton by Carlyle on July 31, 2008, Booz Allen Holding, Coinvest, certain members of the management of Booz Allen Holding and certain other stockholders of Booz Allen Holding entered into a stockholders agreement, which was amended and restated. During the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, Coinvest sold its remaining shares of Class A common stock of the Company in an underwritten transaction, which terminated the remaining provisions in the amended and restated stockholders agreement.
The Management Agreement
On July 31, 2008, the Company entered into a management agreement, or Management Agreement, with TC Group V US, L.L.C., or TC Group, a company affiliated with Carlyle. On June 7, 2012, TC Group assigned all of its right, title and interest in, and obligations under, the Management Agreement to Carlyle Investment Management. In accordance with the Management Agreement, Carlyle Investment Management provided the Company with advisory, consulting, and other services, and the Company paid Carlyle Investment Management an aggregate annual fee of $1.0 million for such services, plus expenses. The Management Agreement terminated on December 6, 2016, upon the closing of the sale by Coinvest of its remaining shares of Class A common stock of the Company. For fiscal year 2017, the Company incurred $0.8 million in advisory fees under the Management Agreement.
The Management Agreement also provided that Booz Allen Hamilton would indemnify Carlyle Investment Management and its officers, employees, agents, representatives, members, and affiliates against certain liabilities relating to or arising out of the performance of the management agreement and certain other claims and liabilities.
Novetta Agreements

During the fiscal year, the Company was a party to several subcontractor agreements with Novetta, which were entered into in the ordinary course of business and on an arms-length basis.  In fiscal year 2017, the Company paid approximately $2.5 million in fees to Novetta for services rendered by Novetta to the Company in the areas of communication, media, and military research and strategy in support of the Company's contracts with the U.S. government.  Following the sale by Coinvest of its remaining shares of the Company's Class A common stock in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, Carlyle and its affiliates no longer held stock of the Company.
Indemnification Agreements
We have entered into indemnification agreements with each of our directors and executive officers pursuant to which we have agreed to indemnify such individuals against certain liabilities arising out of service as a director or

25



officer of the Company and its subsidiaries. The indemnification agreements provide our directors and executive officers with contractual rights to the indemnification and expense advancement rights provided under our second amended and restated bylaws, as well as contractual rights to additional indemnification as provided in the indemnification agreements.
The Acquisition
In connection with the acquisition of Booz Allen Hamilton by Carlyle, our current and former executive officers (or their related family trusts) received a combination of current and deferred cash consideration as well as stock and options in Booz Allen Holding. Of the overall cash consideration, $158.0 million was structured as an interest in the deferred payment obligation and $80.0 million was deposited into escrow to fund certain purchase price adjustments, future indemnification claims under the merger agreement and for certain other adjustments. The remainder of the cash consideration was paid on the closing date as part of the acquisition. The current and former executive officers (or their related family trusts) receive their pro rata share of any payments of the deferred payment obligation and any release of funds held in escrow to selling stockholders.
As of March 31, 2017, there was approximately $81.3 million of the deferred payment obligation outstanding, which includes accrued interest of approximately $1.3 million. Remaining potential claims outstanding that may be indemnified under the deferred payment obligation relate to former officers and stockholders’ suits that are still in litigation. The ultimate value of our current and former executive officers’ (or their related family trusts’) interests in the deferred payment obligation will not be known until all such matters are resolved.
Other Relationships
From time to time and in the ordinary course of business and at arms-length, we engage other Carlyle portfolio companies as subcontractors or service providers and they engage us as subcontractors or service providers. The cost and revenue associated with these related party transactions for fiscal year 2017 were not material. During the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, Coinvest sold its remaining shares of Class A common stock of the Company in an underwritten transaction.

Bryan E. Shrader, a Vice President at the Company, is the son of Dr. Ralph Shrader, our former Chief Executive Officer and current Chairman of the Board. He received a base salary of $225,000, a grant of 919 restricted stock units with a grant date fair value of $29,970, a bonus of $76,000, and retirement contributions of $13,377 in fiscal year 2017. He also participates in the Company’s other benefit programs on the same basis as other employees at the same level. Mr. Shrader continues to be employed by us during fiscal year 2018 under similar terms.

Cameron A. Mayer, a Principal at the Company, is the son of Mr. John Mayer, a former Executive Vice President of the Company who retired during fiscal year 2017. He received a base salary of $188,333, a bonus of $76,000, and retirement contributions of $11,150 in fiscal year 2017. Mr. Mayer also participates in the Company’s other benefit programs on the same basis as other employees at the same level. Mr. Mayer continues to be employed by us during fiscal year 2018 under similar terms.

Ryan J. Cook, a Lead Associate at the Company, is the son of Mr. Kevin L. Cook, the former Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company who retired during fiscal year 2017. He received a base salary of $122,278, a performance and recognition award of $400, and retirement contributions of $3,632 in fiscal year 2017. Mr. Cook continues to be employed by us during fiscal year 2018 under similar terms.

Executive Summary
Company Highlights
Fiscal year 2017 was the second consecutive year of top-line revenue growth, exceeding the raised full-year Revenue guidance and delivering Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share above our full-year guidance. Vision 2020 is a comprehensive strategy to transform Booz Allen Hamilton and create sustainable quality growth for the Company. Fiscal year 2017 was the fourth year of implementing the strategy. The objectives of Vision 2020 are focused on:
Moving closer to the center of our clients’ core missions
Increasing the technical content of our work
Attracting and retaining superior talent in diverse areas of expertise

27



Leveraging innovation to deliver complex, differentiated, end-to-end solutions
Creating a broad network of external partners and alliances
Expanding into the commercial and international markets.
Guided by our strategy, we have continued to invest in new capabilities, markets, and talent, and were successful in capturing opportunities in an improved market for our services. The success of our strategy can be seen in the continued growth in our backlog, the composition of which provides visibility into future years and supports our goal of delivering sustainable quality growth. Our ability to combine our deep client mission understanding, our growing technical expertise, and our consulting heritage is what differentiates us from our competitors.
In January of 2017, we closed on the $250 million acquisition of Aquilent, which is additive to our organic investment in our Digital Solutions capabilities.
During fiscal year 2017, we returned $139.3 million to stockholders in the form of:
$92.9 million in quarterly dividends — three regular dividends of $0.15 per share each; and one regular dividend of $0.17 per share.
$46.4 million for the repurchase of 1.3 million shares.
In January of 2017, the Board of Directors increased the quarterly dividend by 13%, effective in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 and increased the share repurchase authorization from $180.0 million to up to $410.0 million. As of March 31, 2017, we had $255.3 million remaining in our share repurchase authorization.
We expect to declare and pay regular quarterly cash dividends in the future. However, the actual declaration of any such future dividends and the establishment of the per share amounts, record dates, and payment dates are subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors, which will take into consideration future earnings, cash flows, financial requirements, and other factors.
During fiscal year 2017, our stock price increased by 17% with a total stockholder return of just over 19%.
TSRNOFOOTNOTE.JPG
Note: Total shareholder return assumes dividends are reinvested. In fiscal year 2018, we will no longer show the DJ US Computer Services Index for comparative purposes. We believe that the Russell 1000 and S&P Software & Services Select Industry Indices represent better comparator groups for relative TSR performance to Booz Allen Hamilton.


Compensation Philosophy
We are a values-driven organization with a guiding purpose to empower people to change the world. In our mission-minded Company, our executives are committed to bring bold thinking, hold themselves and those around them accountable to act with integrity, and realize positive change in all the work we do. Our executive compensation program is intrinsically tied to our purpose and values. Our executives are

28



motivated to act in the best interests of the Company with an emphasis on problem solving, passionate service, and collective ingenuity across markets, clients, and opportunities. The ownership mindset of continuously building long-term value holds true not only for our seasoned executives but also for more recent executives with deep expertise in emerging fields that have joined the Company. Our leaders work shoulder to shoulder with our people and our clients, devoted to tackling the toughest problems with unflinching courage and a champion's heart. They know that the best ideas come when we all put our heads together — welcoming different perspectives and speaking boldly when we see a better way forward. We have remained steadfast for over 100 years based on a foundation of the highest character, and an unyielding commitment to the best client service.
The compensation of our named executive officers is significantly performance-based and centered around a single profit center and firm-wide compensation pool. As further described below in Setting Executive Compensation, our named executive officers and each of our executives, which we define to include our Executive Vice Presidents and Senior Vice Presidents, were assigned to a cohort level and all executives within each cohort level are provided the same number of “points” and, receive the same total compensation. We periodically undertake an evaluation of all of our executives, who are then assigned to a cohort level based on a review of each of their roles, responsibilities, competencies, and performance. This distinctive system allows us to motivate our executives to act in the best interests of the Company through an emphasis on client service and by encouraging the rapid and efficient allocation of our people across markets, clients and opportunities.
Our Philosophy
What Our Philosophy Achieves

- Guides executives to live the Company's purpose and values in their client work and employee interactions.

- Attracts, motivates, and retains executives of exceptional ability to meet and exceed the demands of our clients.

- Creates appropriate rewards and penalties for exceeding or falling short of firm-level performance targets.

- Empowers executives to think and act in the best interests of the Company.

- Focuses on optimizing stockholder value and fostering an ownership culture.

- Encourages and rewards executives with an emphasis on problem solving, passionate service, and collective ingenuity.

Fiscal Year 2018 New Compensation Program Preview
Together with our Compensation Committee, we are committed to designing a compensation program that aligns the interests of our executives with the long-term interests of our stockholders. We continuously seek to evolve our approach and stay connected with the views of our stockholders. As we shared in our CD&A last year, we evaluated the introduction of a long-term performance component to our equity program, where a portion of our executives’ compensation will be tied to the achievement of multi-year performance goals.
To achieve the objectives we communicated last year, effective fiscal year 2018, we implemented several enhancements to our compensation program to further link our executives’ rewards package with the long-term interests of our stockholders. We believe these changes strengthen our executive compensation program’s objectives to reward outstanding performance, promote retention, and encourage business decisions that have a long-term value. The revised program continues to reinforce our compensation philosophy and key compensation practices while also meeting the current and future needs of our ever-changing business. Key enhancements included the following:
Implemented performance stock units as a key component of our long-term incentive plan, tied to top-line and bottom-line Company financial objectives with a three-year performance cycle, for all Senior Vice Presidents and above, not just for our named executive officers
Adjusted the mix of equity compensation so that a meaningful portion of our CEO’s and other named executive officers’ equity is tied to achievement of long-term performance goals
Established annual salaries and removed notion of “draw”
Determined to pay the annual bonus in cash rather than a mix of cash and equity (starting with fiscal year 2018 bonus), with equity provided as a separate component of annual compensation
Eliminated the supplemental cash bonus and application of the 20% premium on the annual equity grants
Defined value of annual equity grants, with both time-vesting component and a new long-term performance-vesting component
Increased equity ownership requirements for CEO (increased to 7x multiple of salary, from 5x). Also increased equity ownership requirements for all Executive Vice Presidents, including the other named executive officers, and continue to maintain equity ownership requirements across the entire executive corps
Eliminated certain perquisites for our named executive officers, including reimbursement for club dues and tax gross-up on firm-paid life insurance premiums
Created a non-qualified deferred compensation plan (starting with fiscal year 2018 bonus deferrals)

Fiscal Year 2017 Compensation Program Summary
Our fiscal year 2017 executive compensation program was designed to heavily tie compensation to the achievement of our short- and long-term goals and promote a long-term career with the Company. The program components are as follows:
Element
Objective
Base Pay
Reflects the requirements of the marketplace to attract and keep our executive talent
Annual Incentives
Rewards our executives for performance against key operational and financial targets within the context of our Vision 2020 strategy
Long-Term Equity Incentives
Rewards our executives for growing our Company over the long term and aligns their interests with our stockholders
Benefits
Provides for the health and welfare of our executives, including retirement benefits to promote long-term commitment of our executives to the Company
Annual compensation for fiscal year 2017 tied to performance targets is delivered in a mix of cash and restricted stock units as described below. The target annual compensation mix for all named executive officers, excluding Mr. Cook who retired in fiscal year 2017, is approximately 52 percent base pay and 48 percent annual incentives, 19 percent of which is equity compensation.

Advisory Votes to Approve aExecutive Compensation and the Frequency of Holding Future Advisory Votes on Executive Compensation
At the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, over 99% of the votes cast were in favor of our executive compensation structure. The Board and Compensation Committee viewed this strong support as an indicator of general approval of our approach to executive compensation. The Company’s stockholders had previously approved holding future advisory votes on executive compensation every three years, which was consistent with the Board’s recommendation at that time. Considering the preference evident from voting results at other comparable companies, the Board is now recommending that stockholders vote to hold the “say-on-pay” vote every year. Advisory votes on say-on-pay and the frequency of holding the say-on-pay vote are scheduled for this Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
We continue to engage with our stockholders and welcome feedback regarding our executive compensation programs.

Setting Executive Compensation

Our compensation program is designed to attract and retain top-tier talent and provide significant incentives for exceeding our performance targets, while also providing significant penalties for under-performance. The President and Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, and Chief Personnel Officer together recommend the target compensation for each level by reviewing compensation benchmarking data, historical compensation, and considering factors such as projected financial performance, growth, and market conditions for the coming fiscal year. The recommendation is then reviewed with the Company's Leadership Team. The result is the dollar value per point multiplied by the number of points assigned to each executive level to determine target compensation. Based upon their collective experience and reasoned business judgment, our Compensation Committee considers the recommendation from management and approves the final targeted monetary value per point based on achieved performance objectives.

Benchmarking Compensation
To establish compensation for our named executive officers, the Compensation Committee evaluates the amount of direct compensation provided to our executives relative to organizations that are similar in size, industry, and operations. Specifically, our criteria for selecting peer companies include:

31



Company size: Organizations with revenues approximately 0.5x to 2.0x of our revenue, with peer median revenue approximating Company revenue, with flexibility outside of this range to accommodate organizations that are a good match from a business perspective
Industry: Initially, our peer group review focused on government services organizations; however, to obtain an appropriate mix, we reviewed other "comparables" that our Investor Relations department tracks and other organizations that benchmark to our Company
To achieve this end, we consult with ClearBridge to review and benchmark our named executive officers’ compensation against compensation data reported by other publicly traded information technology, engineering, consulting, and defense oriented companies. The peer group is reviewed regularly with the Compensation Committee and adjusted as necessary due to changes at the selected company’s operations (e.g., acquisitions, mergers) or changes in comparability to Booz Allen. For fiscal year 2017, the comparable group was updated to include CGI Group Inc., L-3 Communications Holding, Inc., Engility Holdings, Inc., Harris Corporation, and Rockwell Collins, Inc. and remove Accenture and ICF International.
For fiscal year 2017, peer comparisons for our named executive officers were performed against ten companies as shown below.

Fiscal Year 2017 Peer Group
- CACI International, Inc.

- CGI Group, Inc.

- CSRA, Inc.

- Engility Holdings, Inc.

- Harris Corporation
- L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc.

- Leidos Holdings, Inc.

- ManTech International Corporation

- Rockwell Collins, Inc.

- Science Applications International Corporation
 
In addition to benchmarking our named executive officers’ compensation relative to our peer group, ClearBridge was engaged to assist in the implementation of the long-term performance incentive plan introduced in fiscal year 2018. They provided advice and counsel in the development of the program and the performance measures associated with the program.

For the rest of our executive corps, management obtains market analysis and executive compensation survey data from nationally recognized survey providers, including Mercer U.S. Long Term Incentive and Equity Compensation Survey, Willis Towers Watson Top Management Survey, and Willis Towers Watson Professional Services Executive Survey. Salary, cash incentive compensation, and long-term equity incentives are considered in these analyses. However, we do not use survey data or benchmarking data to set compensation; instead, we use it to confirm that our compensation is within a competitive range.

As part of enhancements to the executive compensation program, during fiscal year 2017, we engaged Willis Towers Watson to provide advice in the development of the non-qualified deferred compensation plan and offer change management support during the implementation phase.
Compensation Elements
Base Pay

Our executives receive a monthly base payment, which is paid over the course of the year like a salary, but is unlike salary in that the base payment is performance-based. In the event that annual Company performance is significantly below expectations, any excess base payment made to each executive is at risk and could be required to be returned, subject to the limitations established by applicable federal, state, and local labor law requirements. For fiscal year 2017, each of our named executive officers earned the base payment set forth in the “Salary” column of the Summary Compensation Table. Effective fiscal year 2018, certain named executive officers have received an

32



increase in base pay, ranging from approximately 2.0 percent to 4.35 percent, to further align compensation with the market and/or to recognize the scope of their role and impact on our business.
Annual Incentive

The annual incentive portion of our executives' compensation is provided through our annual bonus program, which is delivered in cash and restricted stock units. The amount earned is based on achievement of the Company's performance against a target Adjusted EBITDA range with upward or downward adjustments for performance in comparison to the range. The performance range is set at or near the beginning of each fiscal year by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Payment of the annual incentive approximating target levels would generally occur when actual Adjusted EBITDA is within the established Adjusted EBITDA range. A portion of any variance between the established range and actual Adjusted EBITDA is reflected as an adjustment to the pool of funds available for the annual incentive payment, or the bonus pool. The amount of the adjustment is determined by the Compensation Committee in its sole discretion. A positive variance between the range and actual Adjusted EBITDA would generally result in an increase in the bonus pool and a negative variance would generally result in a decrease in the bonus pool.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as our net income before income taxes, net interest and other expense, and depreciation and amortization and before certain other items, including: (i) certain stock option-based and other equity-based compensation expenses, and (ii) transaction costs, fees, losses, and expenses, including fees associated with debt prepayments. We base the annual incentive portion of our executives' compensation on Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is a direct reflection of the cash flow and operating profitability of our business and represents the element of our performance that executives can most directly impact through their management of the business.

No bonuses are payable to our named executive officers unless we achieve a minimum threshold Adjusted EBITDA level of $464 million. If we achieve that level of performance, we can allocate up to 200% of their pro-rata share of the target bonus pool based on our actual Adjusted EBITDA results and the bonus pool approved by the Compensation Committee for all of our executives.
Our Compensation Committee reviews and approves the Adjusted EBITDA result and any adjustments to the plan bonus pool based on year-end operating results. The final bonus pool as approved by our Compensation Committee is distributed to our executives on a consistent per point basis.

Range: $530 million - $542 million
$26.8 million
FY17 Actual
$547 million
$26.2 million

The Compensation Committee approved paying the annual bonus at target for fiscal year 2017 based on our Company's overall performance.

In addition, as contemplated by our fiscal year 2017 compensation program, for fiscal year 2017 executives received a "supplemental bonus" payable in cash that is tied to Company performance and varies based on the executives' total compensation. The supplemental bonus is calculated by multiplying the sum of the base pay and bonus by a factor assigned to each executive’s level. For fiscal year 2017, the supplemental bonus factor for each of our named executive officers is indicated in the following table:

33



Name
Supplemental Bonus
Factor (%)
Horacio D. Rozanski
12.8
Lloyd W. Howell, Jr.
12.7
Karen M. Dahut
12.7
Joseph Logue
12.8
Joseph W. Mahaffee
11.0
Kevin L. Cook
7.4

The supplemental bonus payments to executives were contingent upon the Company generating net income as reported in the Company’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year as well as upon approval by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Pursuant to the terms of the retirement letter agreement, Mr. Cook received a six-month prorated bonus for fiscal year 2017 as discussed below in "Termination Payments" under "Compensation Tables and Disclosures."

Annual Incentive — Cash Component

The cash component of the annual incentive is generally the same for each executive within the same level. For the named executive officers, a portion (ranging from 55% - 70% based on level) of the annual incentive is provided in cash with the remainder delivered in restricted stock units as described below. In addition, executives receive the supplemental bonus in cash, as previously discussed. Executives who retire before the end of the calendar year, or whose employment terminates before the issuance of the equity portion of the annual bonus and under circumstances that entitle them to a full or pro-rated bonus, will be paid their annual bonus entirely in cash. Mr. Cook, who retired in fiscal year 2017, received a prorated annual bonus paid entirely in cash.

Annual Incentive — Equity Component

For fiscal year 2017, the equity component of the annual incentive award is granted in restricted stock units that vest ratably over three years, subject to certain exceptions. The equity portion is intended to enable executives to own meaningful amounts of our stock and create a link to long-term stockholder value.

For our named executive officers (other than Mr. Cook), a portion (ranging from 30% - 45%) of the annual incentive (excluding the supplemental cash bonus) is delivered in the form of restricted stock units. The Company determines the number of restricted stock units to be granted to each executive by multiplying the total annual bonus amount by the percentage factor and then applying a 20% premium. The resulting amount is divided by the fair market value of our stock on the date of grant to determine the number of units granted.

Annual Incentive — Fiscal Year 2017 Payments

The cash payments received by each of our named executive officers for fiscal year 2017 are reflected in the “Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation” column of the Summary Compensation Table under "Compensation Tables and Disclosures." The restricted stock units for fiscal year 2016 performance granted in fiscal year 2017 are reflected in this year's “Stock Awards” column of the Summary Compensation Table. The equity grants for fiscal 2017 year performance granted in fiscal year 2018 will be reflected in next year's “Stock Awards” column of the Summary Compensation Table, in addition to the fiscal year 2018 defined annual equity grants as previously described in the “Fiscal Year 2018 Compensation Program Preview." Total payments for fiscal year 2017 for each of our named executive officers under the annual bonus program are reflected below:

Mr. Cook retired in fiscal year 2017. Accordingly, the Compensation Committee determined that his annual bonus for fiscal year 2017 was to be paid entirely in cash and therefore he was not eligible for the 20% premium on equity.

Long-Term Incentives

We believe that our executives should hold meaningful amounts of equity to align their interests to those of our stockholders, and, accordingly, long-term equity compensation is an important component of our compensation program. Our long-term incentive program consists of awards of stock options to our executives under the Equity Incentive Plan. We believe stock options further our objective of aligning the interests of our executives with those of our stockholders by providing our executives with a continuing stake in our long-term success and by rewarding them based on the future growth in our equity value. We generally award stock options upon hire of an executive and/or upon promotion, which vest ratably over five years based on continued employment, subject to certain exceptions. We do not grant stock options on an annual basis. Our named executive officers hold substantial amounts of equity as discussed under "Executive Ownership Requirements."
Benefits and Perquisites

Our employees are eligible to participate in a full complement of benefit plans. Our executives also participate in enhanced medical and dental plans, life insurance, AD&D, and personal liability coverage at the Company's expense. During fiscal year 2017, our executives received perquisites including initiation fees for club memberships and reasonable dues on an annual basis, up to $15,000 per year for financial counseling, up to $7,500 every three years to update an estate plan, up to $3,000 for preparation of estate plans following relocation to a new tax jurisdiction, and a one-time reimbursement of up to $5,000 for retirement financial planning. In addition, in order to protect our executives from various risks, we maintain an executive protection program that provides our executives with a security assessment for their primary residence and security service for foreign or domestic travel. We believe that our executive benefit and perquisite programs are reasonable and necessary to sustain a fully competitive executive compensation program. For more detail on the perquisites that our named executive officers receive, see footnote 6 to the Summary Compensation Table under "Compensation Tables and Disclosures." Beginning in fiscal year 2018, we have eliminated reimbursement of club dues as well as the tax gross-up on life insurance premiums for our future named executive officers.
Retirement Benefits

We provide retirement benefits to our executives (including our named executive officers) in order to help them build financial security for retirement, while allowing them to direct the investment of their retirement savings as they choose.

Employees’ Capital Accumulation Plan

All employees, including our named executive officers, are automatically eligible to participate in the tax-qualified Employees' Capital Accumulation Plan, or ECAP. We fund contributions to ECAP annually for each of our named

35



executive officers. All employees, including our named executive officers, will be eligible for an annual matching contribution of up to 6% of their eligible annual income as determined by the Code. Each executive is also eligible to receive a payment that is equivalent to the annual tax-deferred contribution he or she is permitted to make to ECAP under the Code. Executives may elect to have these funds deposited into a pre-tax or Roth 401(k), or the executive may simply receive the funds as a cash payment and be taxed accordingly.

Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan

In fiscal year 2017, the Compensation Committee approved the implementation of a non-qualified deferred compensation plan for our executive population to encourage employees to save for their retirement. Eligible employees, which include all named executive officers, excluding Mr. Cook who retired in fiscal year 2017, may elect to contribute up to 100% of their annual cash bonus to this plan. The first bonus payment eligible for deferral is the fiscal year 2018 annual bonus. None of our named executive officers enrolled for the fiscal year 2018 deferral.

Additional Retirement Benefits

We provide additional retirement benefits to our executives (including our named executive officers) in order to provide them with additional security in retirement and promote a long-term career with our Company. Our executives participate in the Officers' Retirement Plan, under which the executive may retire with full benefits after a minimum of either (a) age 60 with five years of service as an executive or (b) age 50 with 10 years of service as an executive. An eligible executive who retires and does not receive severance benefits is entitled to receive a single lump-sum retirement payment equal to $10,000 for each year of service as an executive, pro-rated as appropriate, and an annual allowance of $4,000 for financial counseling and tax preparation assistance. Our retirees are also eligible to receive comprehensive coverage for medical, pharmacy, and dental healthcare. The premiums for this healthcare coverage are paid by the Company.
Employment Letters

Effective April 1, 2014, we entered into employment letter agreements, or employment letters, with Messrs. Rozanski, Logue and Howell and Ms. Dahut to reflect leadership changes, to align their compensation to the market for similarly situated executives, and to ensure retention of these critical leaders during our leadership succession period.

The employment letters provide for base payments and annual incentives that are consistent with that currently provided to the executives (and described above). Each executive officer is eligible to participate in the employee benefit and executive perquisite programs of the Company on the same terms as similarly situated executive officers of the Company. Payments upon termination of employment will be governed by the Company’s severance, transition, retirement, disability or other policies, as applicable, as in effect from time to time, and subject to the terms and conditions of such policies. The officer is required to provide the Company with not less than 90 days’ notice of termination of employment for any reason other than death or disability (or such longer notice period as is provided in the relevant officer policy). In addition, each executive agreed to be bound by perpetual confidentiality provisions and non-compete and non-solicit covenants while employed with us and for one year following termination of employment. Under the employment letters, in fiscal year 2015, each of Messrs. Rozanski, Howell, and Logue and Ms. Dahut received a special grant of restricted stock. 33% of the restricted stock vested on March 31, 2016, 34% vested on March 31, 2017, and the remaining 33% is scheduled to vest on March 31, 2018, subject to the executive’s continued employment through such date.
Executive Ownership Requirements

Equity ownership requirements are in place for all of our executives, not just for our named executive officers, to further align their interests to those of our stockholders. Our ownership requirement extends beyond market expectations. Our named executive officers have regularly exceeded our equity ownership guidelines and

36



demonstrate a commitment to the Company's long-term value by owning equity well above their requirements. Until an executive has satisfied the ownership requirements set forth below, the executive cannot sell any equity granted as equity compensation by the firm. Each executive’s required equity ownership amount is determined as a multiple of his or her base pay. The applicable multiples for our named executive officers for fiscal year 2017 are set forth in the table below as well as a comparison of their actual equity ownership as of the end of the fiscal year:
 
Named Executive Officers
Fiscal 2017
Ownership Requirement 1
Actual Ownership  1
Chief Executive Officer
5x base pay
19x base pay
Other named executive officers
3x base pay
15x base pay

(1) Ownership for the other named executive officers is an average of their equity holdings compared to their respective base pay amounts as of fiscal year end, excludes Mr. Cook who retired in fiscal year 2017.
 
In calculating an executive's ownership, Class A Common Stock, vested in-the-money stock options, and restricted stock and restricted stock units issued under the Equity Incentive Plan will be considered owned by the executive.
Risk Assessment

We conducted an internal risk assessment of our compensation programs. Based on our approach of compensating our executives to foster the financial success of the Company as a whole and other elements of our compensation system, our Company's Leadership Team and the Compensation Committee of the Board, with the information from our internal review, concluded that our executive compensation program does not encourage undue risk taking.

Government Limitations on Reimbursement of Compensation Costs

As a government contractor, we are subject to applicable federal statutes and the Federal Acquisition Regulation, or the FAR, which govern the reimbursement of costs by our government clients. Pursuant to FAR 31.205-6(p), our contracts entered into prior to June 24, 2014 include limitations on the allowability of senior executive compensation equal to a benchmark compensation cap established each year by the Administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy under Section 39 of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act (41 U.S.C. 1127). The benchmark cap applies to the five most highly compensated employees in management positions. When comparing senior executive compensation to the benchmark cap, all wages, salary, bonuses, deferred compensation, and employer contributions to defined contribution pension plans, if any, for the year, as recorded in our books and records, must be included. Any amounts over the cap are considered unallowable and are therefore not recoverable under our government contracts.

For contracts with Department of Defense (DoD), NASA, or Coast Guard, entered into on or after December 31, 2011 and before June 24, 2014, the FAR limits the allowability of reimbursement for compensation to the benchmark compensations caps described above, which is applicable to all employees.

For federal contracts entered into on or after June 24, 2014, the Bipartisan Budget Act imposed a new compensation cap of $487,000, which is applicable to all employees and is expected to adjust annually in accordance with the Employment Cost Index for all workers. The FAR was amended to impose this limitation effective June 24, 2014.



37



Compensation Recovery Provisions (Clawbacks) in Incentive Plans

We have included provisions in our incentive plans that provide us with the ability to impose the forfeiture of bonuses and equity compensation and the recovery of certain bonus amounts and gains from equity compensation awarded under those plans in the event of an accounting restatement due to material non-compliance with any financial reporting requirements under the securities laws with respect to individuals who engage in misconduct or gross negligence that results in a restatement of our financial statements, individuals subjected to automatic forfeiture under Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and, to the extent that, based on erroneous data, any award or payment is in excess of what would have been paid under the accounting restatement during the three-year period preceding the date on which a financial restatement is required, current or former executives, or as otherwise required under applicable laws or regulations. In addition, if an individual engages in certain other misconduct, we have the discretion to suspend vesting of all or a portion of any award and/or require the forfeiture or disgorgement to us of any equity award (including gains on the sale of the stock, if any) that vested, was paid or settled in the 12 months prior to or any time after the individual engaged in such misconduct. Our Equity Incentive Plan and Annual Incentive Plan also permit the Company to subject awards to forfeiture, disgorgement and recoupment under any applicable claw-back policies that may be adopted by the Board or our Compensation Committee. The Company is awaiting regulatory guidance regarding clawbacks of compensation under the Dodd-Frank Act and expects to implement a clawback policy after that guidance is finalized.
Certain Change in Control Provisions

In the event of a change in control, unless the plan administrator determines otherwise, all time-vesting awards under the Equity Incentive Plan will fully vest and a pro-rated portion of outstanding performance-vesting awards will vest based on the performance achieved as of the change in control. Under the Equity Incentive Plan, “change in control” is generally defined as the acquisition by any person of 50% or more of the combined voting power of our Company's then outstanding voting securities, the merger of our Company if our stockholders immediately prior to the merger do not own more than 50% of the combined voting power of the merged entity, the liquidation or dissolution of our Company (other than in a bankruptcy proceeding or for the purposes of effecting a corporate restructuring or reorganization), or the sale of all or substantially all the assets of our Company to non-affiliates.

In addition, if during the five-year period after a change in control our executives' retiree medical plan is terminated or modified in a manner that is materially adverse to our executives, our executives, including our named executive officers, will be guaranteed their existing benefits under the plan through the fifth anniversary of the change in control and receive at the end of the five-year period a cash payment equal to the excess of the actuarial cost of the executive's benefits under the plan that would be accrued on the Company's financial statements on the fifth anniversary of the change in control in the absence of the termination or modification over the amount that is accrued on our financial statements on the fifth anniversary of the change in control giving effect to the termination or modification (but excluding the accrual on the payment itself).
Policies on Timing of Equity Grants

It is our policy not to time the granting of equity awards in relation to the release of material, non-public information. Accordingly, regularly scheduled awards are permitted to be granted at times when there is material non-public information. We generally grant awards to new hires and promoted employees at the next scheduled Compensation Committee or Board meeting following the hire or promotion effective date. Annual awards are typically approved at the Compensation Committee meeting each year in May. It is our policy not to grant equity awards with effect from, or with an exercise price based on market conditions as they existed on, any date prior to the date on which the party in which granting authority is vested (typically our Compensation Committee or our Board) takes formal action to grant them.

38



Effect of Accounting and Tax Treatment on Compensation Decisions

Section 162(m) of the Code imposes a limit on the amount of compensation that we may deduct in any one year with respect to certain “covered employees,” unless certain specific and detailed criteria are satisfied. Performance-based compensation, as defined in the Code, is fully deductible if the programs are approved by stockholders and meet other requirements. As described above, all of our short-term non-equity incentive compensation is determined based upon the achievement of certain predetermined financial performance goals and follow criteria that generally permit us to deduct such amounts without being subject to limits under Section 162(m). While we will continue to monitor our compensation programs in light of Section 162(m) and seek to pay deductible compensation whenever possible consistent with our overall compensation philosophy, our Compensation Committee considers it important to retain the flexibility to design compensation programs that are in the best long-term interests of our Company and our stockholders. As a result, we have not adopted a policy requiring that all compensation be deductible and our Compensation Committee may conclude that paying compensation at levels that are subject to limits under Section 162(m) is nevertheless in the best interests of our Company and our stockholders.

Other provisions of the Code can also affect compensation decisions. Section 409A of the Code, or Section 409A, which governs the form and timing of payment of deferred compensation, imposes sanctions, including a 20% penalty and an interest penalty, on a recipient of deferred compensation that does not comply with Section 409A. Our Compensation Committee takes into account the potential implications of Section 409A in determining the form and timing of compensation awarded to our executives and strives to structure its nonqualified deferred compensation plans to meet these requirements.

Section 280G of the Code, or Section 280G, disallows a company's tax deduction for payments received by certain individuals in connection with a change in control to the extent that the payments exceed an amount approximately three times their average annual compensation and Section 4999 of the Code imposes a 20% excise tax on those payments. As described above, awards under our Equity Incentive Plan have or will contain provisions that accelerate vesting of all or a portion of the awards in connection with a change in control. To the extent that payments upon a change in control are classified as excess parachute payments, our Company's tax deduction would be disallowed under Section 280G.

Pension Benefits Table
The Officers’ Retirement Plan is an unfunded defined benefit retirement plan that we maintain for our executives. Under the Officers’ Retirement Plan, if an executive retires of his or her own volition (and is not entitled to severance) after a minimum of either (a) age 60 with five years of service as an executive or (b) age 50 with 10 years of service as an executive, he or she will be entitled to receive a single lump sum retirement payment equal to $10,000 for each year of service as an executive, pro-rated as appropriate. As of fiscal year 2017 end, Messrs. Howell, Logue, and Mahaffee and Ms. Dahut are eligible to receive benefits under the Officers’ Retirement Plan upon retirement. Mr. Cook received a payment during fiscal year 2017 associated with his July 1, 2017 retirement, plus three months of additional credit.

Employment Arrangements and Potential Payments upon Termination or a Change in Control

Historically, we have not entered into employment letters with our executive officers. However, in January 2014, we entered into employment letters, effective April 1, 2014, with certain senior level executives, including Messrs. Rozanski, Logue and Howell and Ms. Dahut, due to the leadership changes and the need to align their compensation to the market as described above under "Employment Letters." Pursuant to the employment letters, payments upon termination of employment will be governed by the Company's severance, transition, retirement, disability or other policies, as applicable, as in effect from time to time, and subject to the terms and conditions of such policies. Consistent with our Transition Policy, which deals with departures other than retirement, resignation, death, disability and terminations for cause, each named executive officer is eligible for transition pay equal to four months of base pay, plus one additional month for each year of service as an executive, up to a maximum of 12 months’ base pay. Under the terms of our Transition Policy and Retirement Policy, all departure payments and benefits are contingent upon the executives’ signing of a general release.
Termination Payments
Under our Officers' Retirement Plan, if our named executive officers retire, they will each be entitled to receive a single lump sum retirement payment equal to $10,000 for each year of service as an executive, pro-rated as appropriate, and an annual allowance of $4,000 for financial counseling and tax preparation assistance. They are also eligible for a one-time payment of $5,000 upon entering retirement for financial counseling expenses associated with developing a retirement financial strategy. In addition, each of our named executive officers and their eligible dependents will be entitled to receive the benefit of employer-paid retiree medical and dental coverage for life.

We entered into a retirement letter agreement in fiscal year 2016 with Mr. Cook in connection with his retirement. Due to satisfactory completion of defined objectives set forth in the letter agreement, Mr. Cook received a payment of $230,000. Pursuant to the letter agreement, Mr. Cook also received a six-month fiscal year 2017 bonus payable in cash on the Company’s established payment date for fiscal year 2017 bonuses, a one-time payment equal to three months of base pay as if his employment had continued through September 30, 2016, and any outstanding restricted stock units held by Mr. Cook on his retirement date will continue to vest following his retirement. Mr. Cook also received three months of credit toward his unfunded defined benefit retirement plan as if his employment had continued through September 30, 2016. These payments and benefits are in addition to the benefits provided under the Officers’ Retirement Plan, as described above.
Change in Control Protections
We do not have change in control agreements with any of our employees.
Under the Equity Incentive Plan, if a change in control occurs, outstanding service-vesting options will vest immediately prior to the change in control, unvested performance-vesting options that are scheduled to vest in the year of the change in control vest immediately prior to the change in control if certain performance conditions are satisfied in the change in control and, unless determined otherwise by our Compensation Committee, restricted stock and restricted stock units will vest upon the change in control.
In addition, if during the five year period after a change in control our executives’ retiree medical plan is terminated or modified in a manner that is materially adverse to our executives, our executives, including our named executive officers, will be guaranteed their existing benefits under the plan during such five-year period and will receive a cash payment equal to the excess of the actuarial cost of the executive’s benefits under the plan that would be accrued on the Company’s financial statements on the fifth anniversary of the change in control in the absence of the termination or modification over the amount that is accrued on our financial statements on the fifth anniversary of the change in control after giving effect to the termination or modification (but excluding the accrual on the payment itself).
The following table presents potential payments to each named executive officer, other than Mr. Cook, as if the named executive officer’s employment had been terminated or a change in control had occurred as the last day of fiscal year 2017. If applicable, amounts in the table were calculated using $35.39, the closing fair market value of our common

44



stock on March 31, 2017. The actual amounts that would be paid to any named executive officer can only be determined at the time of an actual termination of employment or change in control and would vary from those listed below. For Mr. Cook, the table sets forth the actual amount of compensation received or receivable by Mr. Cook in connection with his retirement on July 1, 2017. The estimated amounts listed below are in addition to any retirement, welfare and other benefits that are available to our salaried employees generally.
