FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 31, 2008--ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) today preannounced its fourth quarter and full year 2007 results and updated full year 2008 guidance. ManTech's preliminary fourth quarter and full year 2007 results are still subject to completion of its year end financial audit.

ManTech's preliminary revenue of approximately $422 million for the fourth quarter of 2007, is up 45%, compared to $290.7 million for the same period in 2006. This represents pro forma organic revenue growth of 28% for the fourth quarter. The growth was primarily a result of the strong demand for ManTech's services as a result of the Company's positioning at the center of the national security marketplace.

Operating income in the fourth quarter is approximately $36.4 million, which represents an 8.6% operating margin. Preliminary net income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter is approximately $21.1 million, up 38%, compared to $15.3 million in the same period in 2006. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations is expected to be approximately $0.61 for the fourth quarter, up 36%, compared to $0.45 for the same period last year.

For the full year 2007, ManTech's preliminary revenue is approximately $1.448 billion, up 27% compared to $1.137 billion for 2006. This represents pro forma organic revenue growth of 17% for the year. Preliminary operating income for the full year is approximately $113.6 million, which represents a 7.8% operating margin. Preliminary net income from continuing operations for the full year is approximately $67.1 million, up 21%, compared to $55.6 million in 2006. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations is expected to be approximately $1.95 for the full year, up 19%, compared to $1.64 for last year.

"Our preliminary results for the fourth quarter and full year 2007 complete the best year in ManTech's nearly 40-year history," said George J. Pedersen, Chairman of the Board and CEO of ManTech International Corporation. "Our team delivered outstanding revenue growth and strong operating profit for the year, which provided accelerated growth in our earnings and returns to our shareholders, while continuing to focus on our critical national security mission."

"We are very pleased with the operating momentum that we have seen during the second half of 2007 and we look forward to carrying it into 2008 to deliver another successful year," said Robert A. Coleman, President & Chief Operating Officer of ManTech International Corporation.

Updated 2008 Guidance

Based on the strong demand for ManTech's services due to its positioning at the center of the national security mission and the strength of the Company's preliminary fourth quarter 2007 results, ManTech is now projecting 2008 full year revenue of $1.725 billion to $1.785 billion, full year net income of $82.7 to $86.8 million and EPS of $2.34 to $2.46 per share. This represents total revenue growth of 19 to 23 percent based on 2007's preliminary results and pro forma organic revenue growth of 10 to 13 percent. The organic growth rate is derived by adding 2007 revenue for both SRS and MBI to ManTech's estimated 2007 annual revenue. The Company's 2008 earnings per share range represents 20 to 26 percent growth over 2007's preliminary results of $1.95 per share.

The Company's updated full year 2008 guidance is summarized in the table below. ManTech's guidance does not include any other future acquisitions or divestitures.
