Business Highlights "We remain well positioned in growth sectors of the Federal market and are aggressively pursuing new business in these target markets, as evidenced by $63 million in new business contract awards for the first half of the year and $377 million in submitted new business bids awaiting award – a record for DRC. Although top line growth is lower than we had anticipated primarily due to insourcing and a delay in contract awards, the prospects for accelerated revenue growth are strong. We also are pleased with the nearly one-and-a-half points of operating margin expansion reported this quarter versus a year ago," said Jim Regan, DRC's chairman and chief executive officer. "We continued to generate solid positive cash flow, as our federal business receivables days outstanding dropped to 65, down another three days from the first quarter of 2010."
