ManTech Announces Financial Results for First Quarter of 2011

  • Revenue: $700.9 million, up 19 percent (9 percent organic)
  • Operating Income: $55.9 million, up 24 percent
  • Diluted EPS: $0.87, up 14 percent
  • Fiscal Year 2011 Guidance: Reaffirms $3 billion revenue guidance and raises net income and EPS guidance

FAIRFAX, Va.--()--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 first quarter of 2011, which ended March 31, 2011.

“Our solid execution in the first quarter and the completion of the 2011 appropriations process give us confidence in our ability to achieve our financial targets for 2011,” said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. “The Department of Defense and Veterans appropriations were up over last year. The base Defense Appropriation Bill for 2011 is $513 billion, which is up about $5 billion from the fiscal year 2010 level of $508 billion. Additionally, the Department of Defense has $158 billion of appropriations in the Overseas Contingency Operations sector for a total of $671 billion for defense in agencies that include the intelligence community. It is clear that the national security missions will continue to be a priority. Our recent acquisitions and strong program performance further enhanced our reputation with our customers and our position in national security programs. With the appropriations process complete, we expect our bookings, revenue, earnings and cash collections to accelerate. Days sales outstanding were 80 days at the end of the first quarter, which was higher than expected. As of today, we have collected $265 million of the March 31, 2011 receivables. We therefore believe our DSOs will return to a normal level below 70 days. We are confident that we will meet or exceed our goals and objectives in 2011.”

Summary Operating Results

Revenue for the quarter was $700.9 million, up 19 percent from $587.6 million in the first quarter of 2010. Organic growth was 9 percent for the quarter, driven primarily by recent awards for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and systems engineering programs. Excluding in-theater vehicle maintenance contracts, organic growth was 16 percent for the quarter. 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 $55.9 million (8.0 percent of revenue), up 24 percent from $45.2 million (7.7 percent of revenue) in the first quarter of 2010. Net income for the quarter was $31.9 million, up 16 percent from $27.5 million in the first quarter of 2010. The company’s net income growth was driven by strong operating performance, which offset a $3.0 million increase in net interest expense from the $200 million in senior unsecured notes issued in April 2010. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.87, up 14 percent from $0.76 in the first quarter of 2010.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $11 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 80 days, compared to 75 days in the first quarter of 2010. Cash collections were impacted by the government’s 2011 Continuing Resolution and some one-time contract start-ups and transitions. The company still expects DSOs for the year to be at 70 days or below.

The company invested $22 million in the quarter to acquire TranTech Inc. As of March 31, 2011, ManTech had $73 million in cash and cash equivalents and $200 million in debt with no borrowings on its $350 million revolving-credit facility.

Contract Awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $793 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.1. Backlog at the end of quarter was $4.7 billion, of which $1.6 billion was funded. Compared to the first quarter of 2010, total backlog increased 2 percent and funded backlog increased 13 percent.

The company won several multiple-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts that are not included in bookings, most notably Department of Justice (DOJ) Information Technology Support Services. This prime contract, with a ceiling of $1.1 billion, enables ManTech to provide information technology support services to the DOJ and all of its offices, boards, divisions and bureaus. Cyber security is one of a number of lifecycle IT-related tasks that will be offered.

Guidance

The company reaffirms the revenue guidance previously provided on February 23, 2011 and raises its net income guidance by $2 million and earnings per share guidance by $0.06. The increase in expected earnings includes the gain from the company’s equity interest in NetWitness, a network security product provider spun-out of ManTech in 2006 and sold to EMC Corporation on April 1, 2011. ManTech expects revenue, net income and diluted earnings per share at least equal to the levels specified in the table below.

         
Measure   2011 Guidance   Year-over-Year Growth
Revenue (millions)   $3,000   15%
Net Income (millions)   $138   10%
Diluted Earnings Per Share   $3.73   9%
   

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, “We now have nearly 90 percent of our revenue guidance for 2011 either in backlog or recognized in the first quarter, and we expect robust award activity for the remainder of the year. Our enhanced operating income margins reflect our exceptionally strong program performance, improved direct labor mix and continued focus on driving efficiencies in general and administrative expenses. Our ability to win large, competitive procurements based on efficient delivery of mission-critical solutions will allow us to expand our market share.”
