Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $38 million. For the year, cash flow from operations totaled $153 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 61 days, an improvement of 12 days compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.

During the quarter, the Company paid $8.2 million, or $0.21 per share, as part of its regular cash dividend program to its common stockholders of record as of December 8, 2017. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had $9.5 million in cash and cash equivalents and $31 million of outstanding borrowings on its $500 million revolving-credit facility, which provides the Company with ample financial capacity to pursue acquisitions and issue dividends while maintaining a strong balance sheet.

The Company has increased the amount of its quarterly cash dividend from $0.21 to $0.25 per share. The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 to be paid on March 23, 2018 to all common stockholders of record as of March 9, 2018, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. Based on the average of recent trading prices the new annual yield is approximately 1.9%. 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 $1.1 billion in the quarter and $4.2 billion for the year, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 2.4 in both periods. In 2017, approximately 50% of the awards were for new business. Book-to-bill ratios for both the quarter and the fiscal year reflect an improving awards environment and strong market positioning for ManTech. Proposal activity remains robust and the Company expects contract awards to continue at a healthy pace in 2018. Large, single award contracts contributing to the quarterly bookings include:

  • Vehicle Engineering Maintenance and Operations Support (VEMOS) for the Army. ManTech was awarded a 5-year contract totaling $847 million to provide a wide range of sustainment support services, which includes operational engineering and logistics support globally for approximately 25,000 vehicles including the Army's Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles or MRAPs.
  • Intelligence Analysis Support for the Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM). ManTech was awarded a 5-year contract totaling $133 million to provide intelligence analysis services in support of counterintelligence and counterterrorism missions.

Additional contract awards in the quarter include several extensions to existing contracts and new contracts from various customers.

Forward Guidance

The Company expects to achieve revenue, net income, and diluted earnings per share in 2018 as specified in the table below.

MeasureFiscal 2018 Guidance
Revenue (billion)$1.88B - $1.95B
Net Income (million)$78.6M - $82.3M
Diluted Earnings per Share$1.96 - $2.05

The guidance is supported by a backlog of business at the end of the fiscal year of $7.1 billion, including $1.4 billion of funded backlog, as well as a strong pipeline of new opportunities and improving government funding levels.

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Judith L. Bjornaas said, "I am pleased to end the fiscal year with strong operating performance, record bookings, organic growth and strong cash flow. We feel confident forecasting robust growth for fiscal year 2018 based on the momentum of our current programs and recent bookings. In 2018, we will continue to focus our capital deployment on acquisitions to support long-term business growth and we are increasing our current cash dividend to provide a steady return to our shareholders."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the review of ManTech's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company has provided non-GAAP calculations of certain financial measures. These measures include adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Each of these calculations excludes the impact of the re-measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities, and therefore is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe these are important calculations to help investors understand actual results compared to guidance and expectations communicated prior to the enactment of the Tax Act.
