ManTech Announces Financial Results for Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2010

  • Revenue: $657.0 million, up 28 percent (11 percent organic) from third quarter fiscal year 2009 (FY09)
  • Operating Income: $54.5 million, up 17 percent from third quarter FY09
  • Diluted EPS: $0.86, up 6 percent from third quarter FY09
  • Bookings: $1.2 billion in contract awards for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.9

FAIRFAX, Va., Oct 27, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ManTech International Corporation (NASDAQ:MANT) (http://www.mantech.com), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions for mission-critical national security programs, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2010, which ended Sept. 30, 2010.

"In the third quarter of fiscal year 2010, we continued our strong growth trajectory," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "Our outstanding bookings in the quarter position us well for sustaining growth in fiscal year 2011 and beyond. Bookings were especially strong in support of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, validating the Sensor Technologies Inc. (STI) acquisition. We look for similar success on our recent acquisition by providing integrated security solutions for defense and intelligence customers."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $657.0 million, up 28 percent from $514.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009. Organic growth was 11 percent for the quarter, driven primarily by recent awards for ISR, systems engineering, and test and evaluation programs, as well as expanded requirements on existing cyber security and logistics contracts. Organic growth is calculated by comparing reported revenue for the current quarter to the revenue for the prior year quarter, adjusted as if STI had been acquired one year earlier.

Operating income for the quarter was $54.5 million (8.3 percent of revenue), up 17 percent from $46.4 million (9.0 percent of revenue) in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009. Operating margin was higher than expected based on a relatively greater direct labor mix and exceptionally strong program performance.

Net income for the quarter was $31.4 million, up seven percent from $29.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009. Net income was affected by an increase in net interest expense of $3.8 million as the result of a strategic decision to issue $200 million in unsecured senior notes in April. The notes add financial flexibility for future potential corporate investments and acquisitions. After the close of the quarter, the company completed the first acquisition to deploy the new source of capital effectively.

Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.86, up six percent from $0.81 in the third 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

The company used $10.7 million of net cash flow to fund operating activities in the quarter. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 69 days, compared to 63 days in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 and 64 days in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009.

As of Sept. 30, 2010, the company had $152 million in cash and cash equivalents and $200 million in debt with no borrowings on its $350 million revolving-credit facility.

On Oct. 8, ManTech acquired the assets of QinetiQ North America's Security and Intelligence Solutions (S&IS) business for $60 million in cash. ManTech funded the acquisition from cash on hand. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to earnings per share.

Contract Awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $1.2 billion in the third quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.9. The company received especially significant awards under its Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) contract with the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) and in the area of cyber defense.


  • S3awards. The company booked more than $750 million in awards on the S3 contract, the vast majority of which are two-year awards. The awards primarily provide full life-cycle support to C4ISR systems and include significant awards moving from a subcontractor to a prime position. To date, the company has received customer approval to announce only one of the awards:
    • Base Expeditionary Target Surveillance Systems-Combined (BETSS-C) Operators. ManTech was awarded a two-year, $70 million contract to operate advanced surveillance and force protection systems in Iraq. Under the contract, ManTech will provide BETSS-C operators and related administrative, managerial, logistics and business services necessary to support their deployment.
  • Cyber defense awards. Thecompany was awarded three contracts with an expected value of about $125 million to establish and manage enterprisewide security operation centers for U.S. federal government customers, including:
    • Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Cyber Security Services. The FBI Security Division awarded ManTech a five-year, $99 million contract to provide 24/7 cyber security support, including intrusion-detection monitoring, security engineering, incident identification and response, vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, cyber-threat analysis and specialized cyber training services.
    • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Cyber Security Operations Center. Under a five-year, $11 million contract, ManTech will provide 24/7 incident handling and strategic support to help detect and report malicious cyber activities on the agency's enterprise information infrastructure.
  • Other awards. The company generated more than $300 million in additional awards across all three operating groups, including:
    • Integrated Logistics Support and Services (ILSS) Contract. ManTech was awarded an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity follow-on to its Global Property Management Support Services contract. The ILSS contract has a potential total value of $490 million over two years. ManTech was awarded an initial one-year, $23 million task to support left-behind equipment, pre-deployment training equipment, theater-provided equipment and supply support activity in the Pacific region.
    • Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Services. ManTech received a five-year, $23 million contract to provide full-scope, integrated security services to support the start-up of new DISA facilities at Fort Meade, Md., which are moving from Arlington, Va., as a result of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process.

The company's backlog of business at the end of quarter was $4.9 billion, of which a record $1.7 billion was funded. Compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2009, total backlog increased 28 percent and funded backlog increased 33 percent, due to a trailing-twelve-month book-to-bill ratio of 1.2 and the robust backlog brought by the STI acquisition.

Forward Guidance

Based on year-to-date results and revised expectations for the remainder of the year, the company is lowering its guidance slightly for fiscal year 2010 revenue and narrowing its guidance for 2010 net income and diluted earnings per share. The resulting guidance ranges, which include the S&IS acquisition but no future acquisitions or divestitures, are shown in the table below:

Measure   Fiscal 2010 Guidance
Revenue (million)   $2,600 - $2,640
Net Income (million)   $123 - $125
Diluted Earnings Per Share   $3.37 - $3.42

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips commented, "Overall, we are pleased with the performance and momentum of the business. Based on changes in customer demand for material purchases in support of in-theater vehicles, we have lowered our top-line guidance for fiscal year 2010, but our positioning on priority programs and excellent bookings provides an excellent growth platform for fiscal year 2011. Contract award delays that we have seen for most of the year are beginning to clear, and we are rapidly staffing to support our growth over the coming year."
