  • Operating Income: $26.7 million for an Operating Margin of 6.0%

FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 third quarter of fiscal year 2014, which ended September 30, 2014.

"ManTech demonstrated improved operating performance in the third quarter, despite continued delays in government awards," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "Operating income and operating margin rose for the third consecutive quarter and cash collections were outstanding. With increased bookings and a robust near-term pipeline of new opportunities, ManTech is well positioned to grow. Federal budgets have stabilized and will turn more positive over time, and we offer compelling solutions in cyber, intelligence, healthcare, enterprise IT, homeland security, and defense that respond to the critical, ongoing needs of our customers and the nation."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $447.2 million, down from $463.4 million in the second quarter of 2014, primarily as the result of reduced requirements for support to the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. Support for Overseas Contingency Operations contributed roughly $44 million in revenues in the quarter, down from a high of roughly $275 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Operating income for the quarter was $26.7 million, up 11% from $24.1 million in the second quarter of 2014. Quarterly operating margin of 6.0% increased 80 basis points from the second quarter of 2014 and 40 basis points from the third quarter of 2013, as the result of strong contract performance and improved cost management. In addition to operating enhancements, reduced interest expenses as a result of the redemption of Senior Notes in April drove net income and earnings per share sharply higher. For the quarter net income was $15.5 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.41, up 101% and 95%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2014.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $90 million or 5.8 times net income. Year-to-date, cash flow from operations has totaled $150 million or 4.6 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 74 days, an improvement of 5 days compared to the second quarter of 2014 and 4 days compared to the third quarter of 2013.

During the quarter, the company paid $7.8 million, or $0.21 per share, to its common stockholders of record as of September 19, 2014. As of September 30, 2014, the company had $55 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 Board of Directors has declared that the company will pay a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on December 19, 2014, to all common stockholders of record as of December 5, 2014, 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 $493 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.1. Approximately 40% of the awards were for new business. Proposal activity remains high, and the fourth quarter should see strengthening contract award activity as well. Large awards contributing to the quarterly bookings include:
  • U.S. Army Elevated Sensor Systems Support. Under a $72 million, 2-year Strategic Services Sourcing (S3) task order for the Communications-Electronics Life Cycle Management Command, ManTech will provide systems maintenance and repair, installation, training, operator personnel, engineering, and logistics support for a wide variety of C4ISR systems, line replaceable units, and components comprising the Army's elevated sensor suite of systems. The work will be performed both in the United States and in various locations around the world.  
  • Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Cloud Computing Solution. The VA awarded 7Delta Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of ManTech, a $49 million, 3-year task order under its Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology (T4) prime contract. ManTech and 7Delta will deliver a comprehensive cloud computing solution that provides the VA with computing, storage, and other services on demand, including access to a suite of secure, scalable, and flexible IT infrastructure services, while seamlessly migrating all assets from an existing mobile environment.  
  • Aegis Test and Evaluation (T&E) Support. ManTech received a task order under its Seaport Enhanced prime contract to provide T&E and fleet support at the Naval Surface Warfare Center. The award is valued at $30 million, with a 3-year period of performance. ManTech will provide technical engineering and analysis expertise for T&E efforts, computer program development and installation, fleet support, and documentation management for Aegis weapon systems and other Navy combat systems.

The company also won $131 million in contract awards in the quarter that were subsequently protested, the majority of which represents new work for ManTech. If these awards had not been protested, the book-to-bill ratio for the quarter would have been 1.4. In addition, the company won several multiple-award indefinite quantity, indefinite delivery (IDIQ) contracts that are not included in bookings. Particularly important is the following award, which provides significant growth potential for ManTech:
  • U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) Global Intelligence Support Services. ManTech received one of 11 contract awards from the U.S. Army INSCOM with a total potential value of $5 billion over 5 years. When the protests on this IDIQ have been resolved, ManTech will have the opportunity to provide advanced cyber operations; full-spectrum information operations and intelligence; as well as field logistics, forensics, and other mission support and sustainment services that further U.S. national security objectives globally.

The company's backlog of business at the end of quarter was $3.5 billion, of which $0.9 billion was funded.

Forward Guidance

The company is revising its expected revenue, net income and diluted earnings per share as specified in the table below.
Measure Fiscal 2014 Guidance
Revenue (million) $1,800
Net Income (million) $47.5
Diluted Earnings per Share $1.28

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, "I am pleased by the earnings and margin performance and cash collections in the third quarter, which were all ahead of our expectations. The third quarter also showed an increased pace of award decisions on the part of our customers; still, many awards have either been delayed or protested. The remaining 2014 guidance assumes virtually no new starts, and with the pace of drawdown in Afghanistan slowing, we should soon see our strong pipeline drive organic growth in revenue and profit. Building awards and a strong pipeline of opportunities that match our capabilities bode well for 2015."
