FAIRFAX, Va., Apr 28, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --ManTech International Corporation (NASDAQ: MANT), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions for mission-critical national security programs, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, which ended March 31, 2010.

"In the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, we continued to accelerate revenue growth and strengthened our positioning in our key growth markets," said George J. Pedersen, ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "With a foundation of strong organic growth and cash flow, we also enhanced our flexibility to pursue strategic acquisitions that will add to shareholder value by completing a $200 million debt offering. Our management team and employees are building the best company in the industry to serve our government customers around the world supporting missions vital to national interest and security."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $587.6 million, up 31 percent from $449.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. Organic growth was 15 percent for the quarter, driven primarily by direct labor growth in support of recent awards for systems engineering and test and evaluation programs and expanded requirements on existing cyber security and logistics programs. Organic growth is calculated as reported revenue for the current quarter divided by revenue for the prior year quarter adjusted as if Sensor Technologies Inc. (STI) had been acquired one year earlier.

Operating income for the quarter was $45.2 million (7.7 percent of revenue), up 12 percent from $40.4 million (9.0 percent of revenue) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. Operating margin percentage declined as expected because of lower profitability in the STI business and the amortization costs associated with the acquisition. In addition, core profitability declined as several contracts were renegotiated as they were extended by the customer.

Net income for the quarter was $27.5 million, up 13 percent from $24.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. Increases in interest expense associated with the STI acquisition were offset by a drop in the effective tax rate from 39.0 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 to 37.8 percent.

Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.76, up 12 percent from $0.68 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, driven by the increase in net income offset by a slightly higher share count compared to the prior year quarter.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $42.8 million (or 1.6 times net income), up from a use of cash of $31.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 75 days, compared to 66 days in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009 and 89 days in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009.

As of March 31, 2010, the company had $6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $108 million in debt. After the close of the quarter, the Company completed a private offering of $200 million in aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes. ManTech intends to use the approximately $196.0 million in net cash proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes and to support future growth through acquisitions. As an interim measure, ManTech paid down existing funded debt on its $350 million revolving credit facility.

Contract Awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $602 million in the first quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.0. Large, single-award contracts received during the quarter include:

  • Secure Border Initiative (SBI) Systems Engineering Support. ManTech received a single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide systems engineering and program management support services to the SBI Program Office, whose mission is to promote border security strategies that protect against and prevent terrorist attacks and other transnational crimes. The three-year, $99 million program was awarded to ManTech in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009 and a subsequent protest was resolved in February.
  • Classified System Engineering Programs. ManTech was awarded two contracts totaling $173 million over five years to provide systems engineering and technical services to classified programs.
In addition to these competitive awards, ManTech received extensions to the Global Property Management Support Services contract and the Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) contract supporting route clearance vehicles together totaling more than $100 million.

The bookings total excludes awards in the quarter with an active protest as well as multiple-award contracts where ManTech has no history of performance. During the first quarter, the government also awarded ManTech a $160 million prime contract to provide system engineering and integration services to support current and future space launch operations for the U.S. Air Force Launch and Range Systems Wing (LRSW). This award was protested and the protest was denied in April, so the award will be included in next quarter's bookings.

The company's backlog of business at the end of quarter was $4.6 billion, of which $1.4 billion was funded. Compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, total backlog increased 13 percent and funded backlog increased 29 percent, due in part to the robust backlog brought by the STI acquisition.

"Our recent wins and superior positioning allowed us to deliver organic growth across all of our operating groups in the first quarter," said Lawrence B. Prior, ManTech President and Chief Operating Officer. "I am especially pleased that our technical capability and past experience in systems engineering allowed us to aggressively pursue and capture new opportunities providing technical and engineering advisory support to government customers concerned with conflicts of interest. We are demonstrating our ability to win in the market, staff up quickly, and execute on mission."

Forward Guidance

The Company expects the increased interest expense associated with the debt offering to decrease net income by $5M and diluted earnings per share by $0.14 in fiscal year 2010. Other than adjusting the ranges for the debt offering, the Company reaffirms the guidance previously given on February 24, 2010. The new guidance ranges, which assume no future acquisitions or divestitures, are shown in the table below:

Measure   Fiscal 2010 Guidance
Revenue (million)   $2,630 - $2,850
Net Income (million)   $123 - $132
Diluted Earnings Per Share   $3.36 - $3.61

Kevin M. Phillips, ManTech Chief Financial Officer commented, "Our performance in the first quarter and our backlog and pipeline support our guidance range. We had some delays in material purchases in our in-theater vehicle maintenance business and some fee erosion, but we generally expect to recover over the year based on our positioning in areas of priority funding and our success in capturing new business. We also believe that future acquisitions will produce profits that will ultimately exceed the expenses associated with the debt offering."
