FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 18, 2015 (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 fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014, which ended December 31, 2014.

"2015 should bring improved financial success and growth," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "The budget outlook is much brighter, and award activity is slowly returning to normal. In anticipation of this upturn, we invested heavily in 2014–in business development and research and development to drive new awards, in acquisitions to expand our presence in growing markets such as federal healthcare and homeland security, and in internal systems to generate efficiencies. We also recently enhanced our leadership team by bringing on Steve Comber and Andy Twomey to run our healthcare and Army businesses. With compelling technical solutions, strong management, dedicated and talented employees, and $4.6 billion in proposals awaiting adjudication, ManTech is well positioned to take advantage of the improving market in 2015."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $411.4 million, compared to $491.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Revenues for the year were $1.77 billion, compared to $2.31 billion in fiscal year 2013. The lower revenues are primarily the result of reduced requirements for support to the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. Support for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) contributed roughly $31 million in revenues in the quarter, down from $102 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. For the year, OCO revenues were $198 million, down from $621 million in fiscal year 2013.

Operating income was $24.0 million for the quarter and $94.8 million for the fiscal year. With a quarterly operating margin of 5.8%, profitability remained significantly above levels earlier in the year; operating margin for the year was 5.3%. Net income was $14.5 million for the quarter and $47.3 million for the full year, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.39 for the quarter and $1.27 for the full year. All quarterly and fiscal year profit figures were significantly higher than the comparable figures for 2013, which included a goodwill impairment charge stemming from the withdrawal of forces from Afghanistan, as well as slowed services spending across the company's defense customers.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

The company used $23 million of cash to fund operations in the quarter. For the year, cash flow from operations totaled $127 million or 2.7 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 83 days, an improvement of 1 day compared to the fourth 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 December 5, 2014. As of December 31, 2014, the company had $24 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 March 20, 2015, to all common stockholders of record as of March 6, 2015, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. Based on the current number of outstanding shares, the anticipated total dividend for 2015 of $0.84 per share of common stock implies a payout of $31 million. The annual yield is approximately 2.4% based on the closing price on February 17, 2015. 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 $361 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9. For the year contract awards totaled $1.6 billion for a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9. Book-to-bill ratios for both the quarter and the fiscal year surpassed the comparable figure for 2013, reflecting an improving awards environment. Proposal activity remains high, and the company expects contract awards to increase significantly in 2015.

Forward Guidance

The company expects to achieve revenue, net income, and diluted earnings per share in 2015 as specified in the table below.
Measure Fiscal 2015 Guidance
Revenue (million) $1,725
Net Income (million) $57.8
Diluted Earnings per Share $1.54

The guidance is supported by a backlog of business at the end of the quarter of $3.3 billion, including $0.8 billion of funded backlog, as well as a strong pipeline of new opportunities and improving government funding levels.

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, "I am pleased that in 2014 we were able to reverse the downward trend in operating margin by focusing on internal efficiency and executing well against an improved contract mix. Our remaining OCO exposure is much less than last year and should be about $125 million lower in 2015. As we move through 2015, we will reach the inflection point where our contract awards will generate sufficient revenue to offset OCO declines. The investments that we made last year position us well to take advantage of improving market dynamics."
