FAIRFAX, Va., April 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) (www.mantech.com), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions for mission-critical national security programs, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, which ended March 31, 2014.

"Based on increased proposal activity and a more stable funding environment, we believe that the government services market in general and ManTech in particular will return to growth during 2014," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "We believe that industry-wide delays in contract awards are behind us, and we expect a substantial increase in new business awards during 2014. The cash generation of the business remains strong, which enabled us to build our cash position to a record $276 million, and we are actively deploying this cash to drive shareholder value. With the acquisition of Allied Technology Group in the first quarter and the pending acquisition of 7Delta, ManTech is expanding its position within some of the fastest growing segments of the government services business, including homeland security and healthcare."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $452.0 million, compared to $646.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. Quarterly revenues declined primarily as a result of contracts supporting the U.S. Army, especially as mission requirements fell in conjunction with the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan. More than three-quarters of the decline in Afghanistan-focused revenue derived from material purchases and subcontracted labor services.

Operating income was $20.0 million for the quarter. Operating margin of 4.4 percent for the quarter reflected increased levels of bid-and-proposal expense and continued investment in new market areas. Net income was $9.6 million for the quarter, which resulted in diluted earnings per share of $0.26.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $62 million or 6.5 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 78 days, an improvement of 6 days compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

During the quarter, the company paid $7.8 million in dividends, or $0.21 per share, to its common stockholders of record as of March 7, 2014. The company also invested $45 million in the quarter to acquire the business of Allied Technology Group, Inc., an information technology (IT) and engineering solutions company focused on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The acquisition will enable ManTech to deliver technology services through Allied Technology's unrestricted prime positions on two DHS multiple-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts. Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions (EAGLE) II is the department's principal IT solutions contract, and Technical, Acquisition, and Business Support Services (TABSS) encompasses program management, engineering, and technology support services. Together, the two contracts provide $33 billion in potential ceiling value for use by all DHS components.

As of March 31, 2014, the company had $276 million in cash and cash equivalents, up from $269 million at the end of fiscal year 2013. On April 15, 2014, the company redeemed all of the outstanding $200 million principal of its 7.25 percent Senior Notes due 2018, at a redemption price of 103.625% of the principal amount of the outstanding Notes. The company funded the redemption from cash on hand to drive annual interest pre-tax savings of $15 million. On April 29, 2014, the company agreed to acquire 7Delta, Inc., a leading provider of advanced information solutions and services to federal health clients. 7Delta holds a prime position on the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) $12 billion Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology (T4) acquisition program. Even after completion of the debt repayment and the 7Delta acquisition, the company expects to have no material borrowings on its $500 million revolving-credit facility.

The Board of Directors has declared that the company will pay a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on June 20, 2014, to all common stockholders of record as of June 6, 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 $337 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.7. As a leading indicator of increased awards activity, the value of proposals currently in process increased four-fold compared to last quarter and is at the highest level in more than two years. The company's backlog of business at the end of quarter was $3.8 billion, of which $1.0 billion was funded.

Forward Guidance

The company is maintaining its forward guidance for revenue and revising its forward guidance for net income and diluted earnings per share. The company now expects to achieve revenue, net income and diluted earnings per share as specified in the table below.

 
Measure Fiscal 2014 Guidance
Revenue (million) $ 2,000
Net Income (million) $ 52
Diluted Earnings Per Share $ 1.39

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Kevin M. Phillips said, "As expected, the drawdown in Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) weighed on our results in the first quarter. Despite the change in earnings guidance, our fundamental outlook remains unchanged. We expect that our customers will push to obligate funds by the end of the government fiscal year, and we are heavily investing in business development and new solutions development to take advantage of that opportunity. We expect our cash flow to remain strong, and by paying down our debt and acquiring companies in our growth segments, we are enhancing our platform to grow earnings in 2015."
