FAIRFAX, Va., July 29, 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 second quarter of fiscal year 2015, which ended June 30, 2015.

"ManTech's second quarter results demonstrate positive momentum across all of our key operating metrics," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "Revenues, operating income, operating margin, net income, and earnings per share improved compared to last quarter, and operating margin, net income, and earnings per share improved year-over-year. More importantly, bookings were exceptional, setting the stage for continued growth. Finally, we executed on our plan to invest in growth markets with strategic acquisitions that greatly enhance our position in cyber defense services and the Intelligence Community."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $384.4 million, up 4% from $370.3 million in the first quarter of 2015. Annualized direct labor was up 7% compared to the first quarter of 2015. Support for Overseas Contingency Operations contributed roughly $30 million in revenues in the quarter, up about $7 million from the first quarter of 2015.

Operating income for the quarter was $21.1 million, up 6% from the first quarter of 2015. Quarterly operating margin of 5.5% increased 10 basis points from the first quarter of 2015 and 30 basis points from the second quarter of 2014. For the quarter net income was $12.5 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.33, both up 6% compared to the first quarter of 2015; net income and diluted earnings per share increased 62% and 57%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2014, which included a one-time charge of $10.1 million from redeeming $200 million of Senior Notes.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $18 million or 1.5 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 83 days, an improvement of 4 days compared to the first quarter of 2015. As of June 30, 2015, the company had $4 million in cash and cash equivalents and $53 million in 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.

During the quarter, the company acquired Welkin Associates and Knowledge Consulting Group (KCG) to enhance its position in key growth markets. Welkin delivers mission-centric services in high-end systems engineering and advanced national security technology and business services to its customers across the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense (DoD). KCG provides full lifecycle cyber security solutions in risk assurance, cyber operations, and infrastructure security to identify and manage risk for our nation's most critical infrastructures and institutions. KCG is also at the forefront of cloud security for government agencies as one of the first and most active cyber security companies accredited as a Third-Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) under the FedRAMP Program.

In addition, the company paid $7.9 million, or $0.21 per share, to its common stockholders of record as of June 5, 2015. The Board of Directors has declared that the company will pay a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on September 18, 2015, to all common stockholders of record as of September 4, 2015, 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.

After the close of the quarter, the company completed the divestiture of ManTech Cyber Solutions International (MCSI), its commercial software division, to CounterTack. The addition of MCSI's products and intellectual property enhances CounterTack's leadership position in the Endpoint Detection and Response market by combining real-time operating system-level behavioral threat detection with in-memory threat analysis. In exchange, ManTech has become an equity investor in CounterTack, as well as a global distribution partner.

Contract Awards

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $692 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.8. Approximately 58% of the awards were for new business, primarily in the areas of intelligence, cyber security, and systems engineering, creating significant growth momentum for the remainder of the year. Over the trailing 12 months, the book-to-bill ratio is 1.1. Large, single-award contracts contributing to the quarterly bookings include:
  • Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) IT Support. ManTech was awarded a 5-year, $279 million task order to provide IT modernization and logistics management support to DIA. 
  • U.S. Marine Corps Program Manager Marine Intelligence (PMMI) Support. Under a 5-year, $40 million task order, ManTech will provide expertise in research, engineering, science, technology, development, and integration to support PMMI's mission to provide enhanced integrated and interoperable intelligence capabilities to Marine Corps operating forces. 
  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program. After acquisition, KCG received a $29 million DHS CDM task order to integrate tools, sensors and Continuous Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) capabilities. KCG will design, build, and operate a CMaaS solution that integrates with DHS' information system security risk management process. 
  • DHS Science and Technology Directorate Support. DHS awarded ManTech a 3-year, $29 million task order to provide systems engineering services, including development and assessments of program requirements; concepts of operations; alternatives, cost-performance tradeoff, and life-cycle cost analyses; and technology insertion and process improvement assessments.

In addition, the company won several multiple-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts that are not included in bookings, several of which provide significant growth opportunities for ManTech:
  • TACOM Strategic Solution Services (TS3). The U.S. Army Contracting Command awarded ManTech the Knowledge-Based Services (KBS) and Equipment-Related Services (ERS) components of the TS3 family of contracts, which provide $2.9 billion in contract ceiling over 5 years. Under the KBS contract suite, ManTech will provide engineering and technical services, logistics management services, management support services, and other professional services. Under the ERS contract suite, ManTech will provide machine, system, and vehicle installation, maintenance, modification, overhaul, and repair. 
  • Network-Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTS-2). Under a 3-year, $960 million contract, ManTech will compete to provide a wide range of information technology (IT) products, solutions, and services for the U.S. Air Force, including network-centric IT, networking, and security; voice, video, and data communications; and system solutions and services. 
  • Unmanned Maritime Systems Support (UMSS). ManTech was awarded a 3-year contract with a potential value of $175 million from the U.S. Navy to produce hardware and software for unmanned maritime systems intended to detect mines. Potential services include design, fabrication, installation, test and evaluation, fielding, maintenance, training and configuration.

The company's backlog of business at the end of quarter was $3.4 billion, up 13% compared to the first quarter of 2015; funded backlog was $0.9 billion, up 3% compared to the first quarter of 2015.

Forward Guidance

The company is revising its expected revenue, net income, and diluted earnings per share as specified in the table below.
Measure Fiscal 2015 Guidance
Revenue (million) $1,550 - $1,650
Net Income (million) $51.0 - $53.3
Diluted Earnings per Share $1.35 - $1.41

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, "I am pleased to see improved financial performance across the company, and we have a clear path to growth spurred by our recent awards and acquisitions in priority markets. Our revenue guidance reflects some delays in contract awards out of our strong pipeline of new opportunities. Our revised earnings guidance assumes a margin profile that reflects the impact of potential material purchases supporting new program expansion. We expect cash collections to remain strong throughout the year, consistent with our enhanced focus on our core services business."
