  • Operating Income: $58.9 million (up 24%) for Q4, $215.1 million (up 20%) for fiscal year

  • Cash Flow from Operations: $69 million (up 107%) for Q4, $171 million (up 30%) for fiscal year
  • Fiscal Year 2011 Guidance: Surpass $3 billion in revenue driven by strong organic growth

FAIRFAX, Va., Feb 23, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ManTech International Corporation (NASDAQ:MANT) (www.mantech.com), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions for mission-critical national security programs, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2010, which ended Dec. 31, 2010.

"Fiscal year 2010 was an excellent year for ManTech, marked by double-digit growth, increased profitability, excellent cash flow and strong contract awards," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "During the fourth quarter, we were also able to acquire two new companies that will provide new and additional technical capabilities as well as new customers and revenues. We continue to grow because of our strong support of our customers' most vital missions here and around the world. We expect to exceed $3 billion in revenue in 2011."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $697.9 million, up 29 percent from $542.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009. Revenues for the year were $2.60 billion, up 29 percent from $2.02 billion in fiscal year 2009. Organic growth was 4 percent for the quarter and greater than 10 percent for the fiscal year, driven primarily by recent awards for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), systems engineering, and test and evaluation programs, as well as expanded requirements on existing cyber security and logistics contracts, offsetting slowdowns in material purchases in support of in-theater vehicle maintenance contracts. Excluding the in-theater vehicle maintenance contracts, organic growth was 15 percent and 18 percent for the fourth quarter and fiscal year, respectively. Organic growth is calculated by comparing reported revenue for the current quarter to the revenue for the prior year quarter adjusted as if all acquisitions had been made one year earlier.

Operating income for the quarter was $58.9 million (8.4 percent of revenue), up 24 percent from $47.4 million (8.7 percent of revenue) in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009. Full-year operating income was $215.1 million (8.3 percent of revenue), up 20 percent from $179.1 million (8.9 percent of revenue) in fiscal year 2009. Operating margin was higher than expected based on a relatively greater direct labor mix and exceptionally strong program performance. Growth in operating income came despite an increase in depreciation and amortization of $3.0 million for the quarter and $11.1 million for the fiscal year as a result of recent acquisitions.

Net income for the quarter was $34.0 million, up 15 percent from $29.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009. Full-year net income was $125.1 million, up 12 percent from $111.8 million in fiscal year 2009. Net income was affected by an increase in net interest expense of $3.7 million for the quarter and $11.3 million for the fiscal year 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. Since the issuance of the notes, the company has deployed approximately $155 million to complete three accretive acquisitions.

Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.93, up 13 percent from $0.82 in the fourth 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. Diluted earnings per share for the year were $3.43, up 10 percent from $3.11 in fiscal year 2009.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $69 million (or 2.0 times net income), up 107 percent from $34 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009. Cash collections continued to be strong as days sales outstanding (DSO) were 67 days, two days lower sequentially. For the year, cash flow from operations was $171 million (or 1.4 times net income), up 30 percent from $132 million in fiscal year 2009.

The company invested $135 million in the quarter to purchase QinetiQ North America's Security and Intelligence Solutions business and MTCSC Inc. Including the first quarter acquisition of Sensor Technologies Inc., the company invested $377 million during the fiscal year on three acquisitions, or 2.4 times fiscal year 2010 free cash flow (defined as cash flow from operations minus capital expenditures) of $158 million.

As of Dec. 31, 2010, the company had $85 million in cash and cash equivalents and $200 million in debt with no borrowings on its $350 million revolving-credit facility. On Feb. 11, 2011, ManTech used a modest amount of cash on hand to acquire TranTech Inc. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to earnings per share.

Contract Awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $257 million in the fourth quarter and $2.8 billion for the fiscal year, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.4 and 1.1 for the fourth quarter and fiscal year, respectively. The fourth quarter bookings total excludes several contracts that were awarded but were subsequently protested. Contract awards in the quarter were also affected by a number of delays. Large, single-award contracts received during the quarter include:

  • Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) Support. Under afive-year, $57 million contract, ManTech will provide NAWCAD engineering, technical and administrative support for naval aircraft and systems. Areas of focus include reliability, maintainability, testability and quality assurance, as well as diagnostics and systems safety analyses during the design, development, production and in-service cycles of naval aircraft and associated systems.
  • Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Ship Silencing Support. ManTech was awarded a four-year, $45 million task order by the NSWC Carderock Division to provide engineering, technical and program management support for submarine and surface ship signature silencing programs. ManTech's support will include the development of systems designed to measure acoustic and non-acoustic signatures; execution of ocean engineering programs, including test and evaluation of new submarine technology; engineering and logistics for mine-vulnerability assessments; environmental assessment and impact evaluations; and assistance in planning and managing ship acoustics-related programs.

In addition, ManTech won several indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts that are not included in bookings, most notably:

  • Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Information Technology Supplies and Support Services (IT Triple S). ManTech received a prime contract with the FBI to provide a wide range of IT services, including secured communications, application development, systems engineering, cyber security, counter-terrorism analytics, tactical biometrics, and system operations and maintenance. The multiple-award, eight-year contract has a total ceiling value of $30 billion for all awardees, making it the largest contract ever awarded by the FBI.
  • Commercial Enterprise Omnibus for Support Services (CEOss). ManTech received a prime contract with the Marine Corps Systems Command to provide specialized information technology and engineering services, including software development, emerging technology assessments, and modeling and simulation support. CEOss is a multiple-award contract with a 10-year period of performance and a total ceiling value of $500 million for all awardees.

The company's backlog of business at the end of quarter was $4.9 billion, of which $1.6 billion was funded. Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009, total backlog increased 30 percent and funded backlog increased 47 percent. Additionally, contract activity has picked up in fiscal year 2011, with contract awards of about $700 million in less than two months.

Forward Guidance

ManTech enters fiscal year 2011 with a healthy backlog and a strong market position, and the company expects to achieve revenue, net income and diluted earnings per share at least equal to the levels specified in the table below.

Measure       Fiscal 2011 Guidance       Year-over-Year Growth
Revenue (million)       $3,000       15%
Net Income (million)       $136       9%
Diluted Earnings Per Share       $3.67       7%

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, "We feel confident forecasting robust growth for fiscal year 2011. Even as revenues from materials supporting in-theater missions have diminished, we have demonstrated that our positioning in priority areas allows us to grow and take market share. We expect that we will be able to achieve our targets given our current business base alone, but if necessary, we will also use our balance sheet as a strategic asset to achieve our financial targets and grow shareholder value."
