2 DISCLAIMER Forward Looking Safe Harbor Statement Certain statements contained in this presentation and in related comments by our management include “forward - looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Examples of forward - looking statements include information concerning Booz Allen’s preliminary f inancial results, financial outlook and guidance, including forecasted revenue, Diluted EPS, Adjusted Diluted EPS, free cash flow, future quarterly dividends, and future impro vem ents in operating margins, as well as any other statement that does not directly relate to any historical or current fact. In some cases, you can identify forward - looking stat ements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “forecasts,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “projects,” “outlook,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predict s,” “potential,” “continue,” “preliminary,” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward - looking stat ements are reasonable, we can give you no assurance these expectations will prove to have been correct. These forward - looking statements relate to future events or our future financial performance and involve known and unknown risks , uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from any future results, levels of a cti vity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward - looking statements. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those co ntained in or implied by these forward - looking statements, including those factors discussed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including our An nual Report on Form 10 - K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, which can be found at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. All forward - looking statements attributable to us or pe rsons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the foregoing cautionary statements. All such statements speak only as of the date made and, except as req uired by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward - looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Note Regarding Non - GAAP Financial Data Information Booz Allen discloses in the following information Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted E BIT DA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Free Cash Flo w w hich are not recognized measurements under GAAP, and when analyzing Booz Allen’s performance or liquidity as applicable, investors should ( i ) evaluate each adjustment in our reconciliation of revenue to Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, operating income to Adjusted Operating Income, net income to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Re ven ue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share, and net cash provided by operating act ivities to Free Cash Flow, and the explanatory footnotes regarding those adjustments, each as defined under GAAP, (ii) use Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Op era ting Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS in addition to, and not as an alternative to revenue, operating income, net income or diluted EPS as measures of operating results, and (iii) use Free Cash Flow in additi on to and not as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, each as defined under GAAP. The Financial Appendix includes a reconciliation of Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable E xpe nses, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, and Free Cash Flow to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GA AP. Booz Allen presents these supplemental performance measures because it believes that these measures provide investors and securities analysts with important supplem ent al information with which to evaluate Booz Allen’s performance, long term earnings potential, or liquidity, as applicable and to enable them to assess Booz Allen’s perf orm ance on the same basis as management. These supplemental performance and liquidity measurements may vary from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures by o the r companies in Booz Allen’s industry. With respect to our expectations under “Investment Thesis,” reconciliation of Adjusted Diluted EPS guidance to the closest corresp ond ing GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward - looking basis due to our inability to predict our stock price, equity grants and dividend decl arations during the course of fiscal 2021. Projecting future stock price, equity grants and dividends to be declared would be necessary to accurately calculate the difference betw een Adjusted Diluted EPS and GAAP EPS as a result of the effects of the two - class method and related possible dilution used in the calculation of EPS. Consequently, any attempt to d isclose such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that could be confusing or misleading to investors. We expect the variability of the above charges to have an unpre dic table, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results. For the same reason, a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue guidance to the clo ses t corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward - looking basis due to our inability to predict specific quantifications of the amounts that would be required to reconcile such measures.

19 NON - GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION ⦁ "Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses" represents revenue less billable expenses. We use Revenue, Excluding Billable Expense s because it provides management useful information about the Company's operating performance by excluding the impact of costs tha t are not indicative of the level of productivity of our consulting staff headcount and our overall direct labor, which managem ent believes provides useful information to our investors about our core operations. ⦁ "Adjusted Operating Income" represents operating income before transaction costs, fees, losses, and expenses, including fees associated with debt prepayments and supplemental employee benefits due to the COVID - 19 outbreak. We prepare Adjusted Operating Income to eliminate the impact of items we do not consider indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their inherent unusual, extraordinary, or non - recurring nature or because they result from an event of a similar nature. ⦁ "Adjusted EBITDA" represents net income before income taxes, net interest and other expense and depreciation and amortization an d before certain other items, including transaction costs, fees, losses, and expenses, including fees associated with debt prep aym ents and supplemental employee benefits due to the COVID - 19 outbreak. “Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue” is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA di vid ed by Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses. The Company prepares Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin on Revenue, and Adjuste d EBITDA Margin on Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses to eliminate the impact of items it does not consider indicative of ong oin g operating performance due to their inherent unusual, extraordinary or non - recurring nature or because they result from an event of a similar nature. ⦁ "Adjusted Net Income" represents net income before: ( i ) transaction costs, fees, losses, and expenses, including fees associated with debt prepayments, (ii) supplemental employee benefits due to the COVID - 19 outbreak, (iii) tax credits, net of reserves for uncer tain tax positions, (iv) amortization or write - off of debt issuance costs and write - off of original issue discount, (v) release of income tax reserves, and (vi) re - measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities as a result of the 2017 Tax Act in each case net of the tax effec t where appropriate calculated using an assumed effective tax rate. We prepare Adjusted Net Income to eliminate the impact of items, net of tax, we do not consider indicative of ongoing operating performance due to their inherent unusual, extraordinary, or non - recurri ng nature or because they result from an event of a similar nature. We view net income excluding the impact of the re - measurement o f the Company's deferred tax assets and liabilities as a result of the 2017 Tax Act as an important indicator of performance co nsi stent with the manner in which management measures and forecasts the Company's performance and the way in which management is incentivized to perform. "Adjusted Diluted EPS" represents diluted EPS calculated using Adjusted Net Income as opposed to net income. Additionally, Ad jus ted Diluted EPS does not contemplate any adjustments to net income as required under the two - class method of calculating EPS as required in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. ⦁ "Free Cash Flow" represents the net cash generated from operating activities less the impact of purchases of property, equipm ent , and software.
20 NON - GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION (a) Fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019 reflect debt refinancing costs incurred in connection with the refinancing transactions consummated on November 26, 2019 and July 23, 2018, respectively.

(c) Reflects the combination of Interest expense and Other income (expense), net from the consolidated statement of operations.

NON - GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION
22 FINANCIAL RESULTS – KEY DRIVERS Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2020 – Below is a summary of the key factors driving results for the fiscal 2020 fourth quarter ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior year period: • Revenue increased by 10.6% to $2.0 billion driven by sustained strength in client demand and increased client staff headcount to meet that demand. Revenue also benefited from higher billable expenses as compared to the prior year period. • Revenue, Excluding Billable Expenses increased 9.8% to $1.4 billion due to sustained strength in client demand and increased cli ent staff headcount to meet that demand. • Operating Income increased 10.3% to $149.1 million and Adjusted Operating Income increased 12.4% to $151.8 million. Increases in both were primarily driven by the same factors driving revenue growth, as well as strong contract performance. Operating income in fi scal 2020 was negatively impacted by approximately $10.0 million in COVID - 19 related expenses, including transitional costs, temporar y reductions in billability during the month of March of fiscal 2020, and charges related to certain contracts involving a read y w orkforce that we believe we may not be able to recover. • Net income increased 55.0% to $138.9 million and Adjusted Net Income increased 14.2% to $102.8 million. These changes were pr ima rily driven by the same factors as Operating Income and Adjusted Operating Income. Net income also benefited from a lower effectiv e t ax rate in the current year due to the recognition of approximately $38.0 million in available research and development credits, ne t of associated uncertain tax positions, recognized in the fourth quarter. • EBITDA increased 10.8% to $169.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA increased 12.6% to $172.6 million. These increases were due to t he same factors as Operating Income and Adjusted Operating Income. • Diluted EPS decreased to $0.98 from $0.63 and Adjusted Diluted EPS increased to $0.73 from $0.64. The changes were primarily dri ven by the same factors as Net Income and Adjusted Net Income, respectively, as well as a lower share count in the fourth quarter of fi scal 2020. • As of March 31, 2020, total backlog was $20.7 billion, an increase of 7.4%. Funded backlog was $3.4 billion, a decrease of 0.6%.
23 FINANCIAL RESULTS – KEY DRIVERS Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2020 – Booz Allen's cumulative performance for fiscal 2020 has resulted in: • Net cash provided by operating activities was $551.4 million for the year ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $499.6 million in the prior year. The increase in operating cash flows was primarily due to the collection of our revenue and net income growth par tia lly offset by an increase in income taxes paid in fiscal 2020 as compared to the prior year. Free Cash Flow was $423.3 million for the y ear ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $404.9 million for the year ended March 31, 2019. Free Cash Flow was affected by the same factors affecting cash provided by operating activities, partially offset by an increase in capital expenditures over the prior year pri marily related to investments in our facilities, infrastructure and information technology.
