FAIRFAX, Va., April 27, 2016 (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 first quarter of fiscal year 2016, which ended March 31, 2016.

"Our solid execution in the first quarter was highlighted by outstanding contract awards, year-over-year revenue growth and improved operating and net income margins. Our first quarter book-to-bill ratio was seasonally strong and the highest for the first quarter since 2008," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen. "We expect growth to continue throughout the year, spurred by our industry-leading book-to-bill ratio in 2015 and the past quarter. ManTech has invested in building strong business development and recruiting teams, as well as technology investments in Cyber, Intelligence, and Enterprise IT, to name a few. We have a very strong balance sheet, a healthy backlog, and remain committed to help solve some of the nation's most difficult technology and security challenges."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $390.7 million, up 5.5% from $370.3 million in the first quarter of 2015, up 0.8% organically. Direct labor was up compared to the fourth quarter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2015. Support for Overseas Contingency Operations contributed roughly $27 million in revenues in the quarter, down about $2 million from the fourth quarter of 2015.

Operating income for the quarter of $21.9 million, representing an operating margin of 5.6%, was up 11% from the first quarter of 2015. For the quarter net income was $13.2 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.35, up 12% and 13%, respectively, compared to the first quarter of 2015.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $29 million or 2.2 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 72 days, an improvement of 15 days compared to the first quarter of 2015. As of March 31, 2016, the company had $60 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 company paid $7.9 million in dividends, or $0.21 per share, to its common stockholders of record as of March 4, 2016. The Board of Directors has declared that the company will pay a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on June 24, 2016, to all common stockholders of record as of June 10, 2016, 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 $491 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.3. Approximately 30% of the awards were for new business. Over the trailing 12 months, the book-to-bill ratio is 1.8. Large, single-award contracts contributing to the quarterly bookings include:
