-- Diluted EPS: $0.39, up 11% from first quarter of 2016

ManTech International Corporation (MANT), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions for mission-critical national security programs, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, which ended March 31, 2017.

"ManTech had exceptional execution in the first quarter as evidenced by multiple, large new contract awards, strong cash flow and growth across all of our key operating metrics. Revenues, operating income, operating margin, net income and earnings per share all increased sequentially and over the prior year. We are poised for continued momentum based on ManTech’s strong strategic positioning coupled with an improving market environment," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen.

"Our performance is a result of continued operational focus and steadfast investments into the business. ManTech’s agility, our employees and mission focus remain our key differentiators. Our recent contract awards underscore the ability to offer innovative, competitive solutions to our customers’ most pressing challenges," said ManTech President and Chief Operating Officer Kevin M. Phillips.

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $418.4 million, up 7.1% from $390.7 million in the first quarter of 2016. Revenue growth was driven by a combination of factors including contribution from acquisitions, higher ODCs and the ramping of our recent contract awards.

Operating income for the quarter of $24.4 million, representing an operating margin of 5.8%, was up 11% from the first quarter of 2016. For the quarter, net income was $15.0 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.39, up 14% and 11%, respectively, compared to the first quarter of 2016.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $37 million or 2.4 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 68 days, an improvement of 4 days compared to the first quarter of 2016. As of March 31, 2017, the company had $92 million in cash and cash equivalents and no 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 $8.1 million in dividends, or $0.21 per share, to its common stockholders of record as of March 10, 2017. The Board of Directors has declared that the company will pay a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on June 23, 2017, to all common stockholders of record as of June 9, 2017, 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 $711 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.7. Approximately 60% of the awards were for new business. Over the trailing 12 months, the book-to-bill ratio is 1.5. Large, single-award contracts contributing to the quarterly bookings include:

Business Intelligence Support Services for Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). ManTech was awarded a 5 year contract totaling approximately $229 million to assist CBP enforcement personnel in effectively and efficiently identifying cargo, individuals and conveyances that may present additional risk to the U.S; conduct terrorism analysis and global assessments that convey changes in terrorism threats and identify emerging threats; develop and evaluate CBP-wide intelligence-based targeting rules and intelligence driven special operations; and coordinate and enhance analysis and targeting efforts.

Enterprise IT Infrastructure Support to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). ManTech was awarded a 5 year contract totaling approximately $220 million to operate, maintain, refresh and enhance the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division’s portfolio of information technology systems that process and share mission critical information for members of the law enforcement community in the U.S. and abroad.

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

The company’s backlog of business at the end of quarter was $5.1 billion, up 4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016; funded backlog was $1.2 billion, up 26% compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.

Forward Guidance

The company is raising the lower end of its guidance on expected revenue and is narrowing the range and slightly increasing the top end of its net income and diluted earnings per share. ManTech expects revenue, net income, and diluted earnings per share as specified in the table below.

Measure
Fiscal 2017 Guidance
Revenue (billion)
$1.65 - $1.70
Net Income (million)
$56.5 - $59.4

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Judith L. Bjornaas said, "I am pleased with the continued strong performance of the company as exemplified by our first quarter results. We continue to generate increased revenue, net income, earnings and cash flow for our shareholders. And we remain focused on making organic investments and leveraging our strong balance sheet to further enhance our competitive positioning."
