  • Diluted EPS: $0.35, up 6% from second quarter of 2015
  • Bookings of $1.3 billion or 3.2x book-to-bill with 30% of awards for new work

FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 third quarter of fiscal year 2015, which ended September 30, 2015.

"Our third quarter was highlighted by outstanding contract awards with new business expansion, including a book-to-bill ratio that was the highest in our history excluding awards for Overseas Contingency Operations, and superb cash generation" said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "Revenues rose sequentially for the second straight quarter, and we expect growth to continue through next year, spurred by our industry-leading bookings over the second and third quarters. With a strong balance sheet and a building backlog, ManTech is well positioned to be a growth leader."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $393.0 million, up 2% from $384.4 million in the second quarter of 2015. Direct labor was up compared to the second quarter of 2015 and the third quarter of 2014. Support for Overseas Contingency Operations contributed roughly $32 million in revenues in the quarter, up about $2 million from the second quarter of 2015.

Operating income for the quarter of $21.1 million, representing an operating margin of 5.4%, was essentially unchanged from the second quarter of 2015. For the quarter net income was $13.0 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.35, up 5% and 6%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2015.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $103 million or 7.9 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 69 days, an improvement of 14 days compared to the second quarter of 2015 and 5 days compared to the third quarter of 2014. As of September 30, 2015, the company had $51 million in cash and cash equivalents and $10 million in outstanding borrowings on its $500 million revolving-credit facility, which provides the company with the financial capacity to pursue acquisitions, issue dividends, and maintain a strong balance sheet.

The company paid $7.9 million, or $0.21 per share, to its common stockholders of record as of September 4, 2015. The Board of Directors has declared that the company will pay a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on December 18, 2015, to all common stockholders of record as of December 4, 2015, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. Future declarations of dividends and their record and payment dates are subject to the final determination of ManTech's Board of Directors.

Contract Awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $1.3 billion in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 3.2. Approximately 30% of the awards were for new business, primarily in the areas of intelligence, cyber security, health, and systems modernization, creating significant growth momentum for the next year. Over the trailing 12 months, the book-to-bill ratio is 1.6. Large, single-award contracts contributing to the quarterly bookings include:

  • U.S. Air Force Full-Spectrum Security Support Services. ManTech was awarded a 10-year, $407 million contract to provide full-spectrum security services to protect mission-critical programs. The contract extends ManTech's decades-long support to the Air Force security customer.
  • Cyber Range Services. The General Services Administration Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) awarded ManTech a contract to provide cyber range services to the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the United States Marine Corps (USMC). The 4-year, $250 million contract significantly expands ManTech's existing support to design, build, test, and operate some of the most sophisticated cyber range and training environments, capable of simulating full-spectrum Computer Network Operation scenarios that prepare future warfighters anytime, anywhere across the globe.
  • Defense and Intelligence Community Modernization Support. Under a 5-year contract valued at more than $200 million, ManTech will support the growing needs for modernization of the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community. ManTech will provide integration, systems engineering, sustainment, and deployment support worldwide to this new effort.
  • Support to the Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A). The U.S. Army awarded ManTech two prime contracts totaling $66 million over two years to provide software modernization and sustainment; embedded training; and other Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) technical support to the DCGS-A Family of Systems.

In addition, the company won several multiple-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts that are not included in bookings, including:

  • Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Enhanced Solutions for Information Technology Enterprise (E-SITE). The DIA awarded ManTech an E-SITE contract to provide worldwide coverage for IT requirements and technical support services for DIA and other members of the Intelligence Community (IC). This 5-year, $6 billion contract replaces the former Solutions for Information Technology Enterprise (SITE) vehicle, on which ManTech also performed as a prime. ManTech will have the opportunity to win task orders to design and maintain a worldwide enterprise IT infrastructure to support the DIA's critical mission.

The company's backlog of business at the end of quarter was $4.1 billion, up 20% compared to the second quarter of 2015; funded backlog was $0.9 billion, unchanged compared to the second quarter of 2015.

The company is revising the upper end of its expected revenue, net income, and diluted earnings per share as specified in the table below.

MeasureFiscal 2015 Guidance
Revenue (million)$1,550 - $1,600
Net Income (million)$50.9 - $51.8
Diluted Earnings per Share$1.35 - $1.38

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, "I am pleased to see continued strong new business awards and improved cash collections. We are aggressively investing in business development to drive growth, and we are successfully capturing market share and expanding our presence in key mission areas. As we invest, we anticipate holding firm on our operating margin. We are narrowing the guidance ranges to reflect delays in new program starts and material purchases on behalf of our customers. We look forward to continued growth in revenues and earnings next year as we begin to execute the new opportunities obtained from our business development and investment focus over the last two years."
