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 fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011, which ended Dec. 31, 2011.

“Fiscal year 2011 was an excellent year for ManTech, marked by double-digit revenue growth, increased profits, excellent cash flow, solid contract awards and the implementation of a regular dividend program to provide our shareholders with a compelling value proposition,” said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. “As a result of our disciplined focus on cash, we generated record operating cash flow of $221 million for the year, which enables us to continue our robust acquisition program. The recent acquisitions of WINS and Evolvent enhance our positioning in faster growing market segments, such as information technology and cyber security for the intelligence and federal health care communities. We are confident that ManTech can continue to thrive even as federal spending slows because of our current positioning in cyber security, C4ISR, intelligence and other priority missions and access to more than 1,000 active contracts as well as our ability to target new growth markets with our strong balance sheet and proven history in identifying, executing and integrating acquisitions.”

Beginning in 2012, the company intends to pay dividends quarterly rather than semi-annually. The Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.21 per share, which will be paid on March 23, 2012 to all common stockholders of record as of March 9, 2012. ManTech anticipates paying equivalent quarterly dividends near the end of each fiscal quarter. Based on the current number of outstanding shares, the anticipated total dividend for 2012 of $0.84 per share of common stock implies a payout of $31 million. The annual yield is approximately 2½ percent based on the closing price on February 21, 2012. Future declarations of quarterly dividends and their record and payment dates are subject to the final determination of ManTech’s Board of Directors.

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the year were $2.87 billion, up about 10 percent from $2.60 billion in fiscal year 2010. Revenues for the quarter were $681.8 million, down 2 percent compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010. Quarterly revenues increased across most of the company’s core business, especially in certain mobile communications and cyber security programs.

Operating income was $227.4 million for the full year and $53.8 million for the quarter. Operating margin of 7.9 percent for the quarter and the year was in-line with expectations.

Quarterly and annual changes in net income and earnings per share changes were in-line with changes in operating income, as net interest payments, other income and effective tax rate were neutral to earnings and share dilution was modest. Net income was $133.3 million for the year and $30.5 million for the quarter. Diluted earnings per share were $3.63 for the year and $0.83 for the quarter.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations was $221 million for the fiscal year (1.7 times net income) and $43 million (1.4 times net income) for the quarter. The record cash flow for the year benefited from positive payment terms on a mobile cell tower program. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 71 days for the quarter and the year.

The company invested $90 million in the quarter to acquire Worldwide Information Network Systems, Inc. (WINS), a leading provider of information technology services to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the Department of State and other government and commercial customers. The company expects to drive strong growth through the WINS prime position on the DIA Solutions for the Information Technology Enterprise (SITE) contract.

As of Dec. 31, 2011, the company had $114 million in cash and cash equivalents and $200 million in debt with no borrowings on its $500 million revolving-credit facility.

After the close of the quarter, the company acquired Evolvent Technologies Inc., a leading federal healthcare systems integrator whose systems and processes enable better decision-making at the point of care and full integration of medical information across different platforms. ManTech expects Evolvent to contribute solid growth and operating margins and be accretive to earnings per share in 2012. After closing, Evolvent received a prime contract to provide management and professional support services for Air Force Medical Service on a five-year, $958 million multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract.

Contract Awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $907 million in the fourth quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.3. For the year contract awards totaled $3.0 billion for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.0. Large awards contributing to the quarterly bookings include:
  • Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) Family of Vehicles (FoV) Support. ManTech was awarded a $507 million, ten-month contract modification by the U.S. Army’s TACOM Contracting Center to continue providing logistics sustainment and support for the MRAP FoV. Under this contract ManTech provides rapid assessment and repair of battle-damaged MRAP FoV systems, immediate repair of mechanical failures and technology insertion, system integration, upgrades, and modification services to enhance and sustain fleet operational readiness.
  • Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) Strategic Technology Office (STO) Support. Under a five-year, $205 million, multiple-award IDIQ contract, ManTech will provide integrated systems engineering, scientific, technical, financial, programmatic and administrative support to the leading edge technology programs and mission of the DARPA STO. Based on historical levels of support under predecessor contracts, the company allocated $103 million to bookings and backlog.
  • DARPA Tactical Technology Office (TTO) Support. The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic awarded ManTech a prime position on a three-year, $150 million multiple-award IDIQ contract to provide scientific engineering and administrative support services to the DARPA TTO. ManTech will continue to provide solutions to equip future warfighters with the tactical, mobile and responsive technologies for advanced weapons systems, platforms and space systems. Based on historical levels of support under predecessor contracts, the company allocated $21 million to bookings and backlog.
  • Systems Engineering Support Program (SESP) for the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) awarded ManTech a five-year, $99 million multiple-award blanket purchase agreement to provide SESP services to the DHS DNDO. ManTech will continue to assist DNDO in acquiring and supporting the deployment of systems that detect and report attempts to import or transport a nuclear device, fissile or radiological material intended for illicit use in the U.S. Based on historical levels of support under predecessor contracts, the company allocated $35 million to bookings and backlog.

As a result of strong quarterly awards, the company’s backlog of business at the end of quarter was $4.7 billion, which was up 8% over the previous quarter. Funded backlog was $1.3 billion. The company expects to sustain strong contract award activity again in fiscal year 2012 considering extremely high levels of proposal activity and submitted awards awaiting adjudication.

Forward Guidance

ManTech enters fiscal year 2012 with a healthy backlog and a strong market position, and the company expects to achieve revenue, net income and diluted earnings per share as specified in the table below.
Measure   Fiscal 2012 Guidance
Revenue (million)   $3,150
Net Income (million)   $131

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, “We expect to post robust growth in fiscal year 2012. We believe that our positioning in priority areas will allow us to grow and take market share. The unprecedented level of proposal activity gives us optimism despite market headwinds and uncertainty around sequestration and the government fiscal year 2013 appropriations process. We also intend to maintain our aggressive but disciplined acquisition program to contribute to 2012 financial performance.”
