FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 22, 2017 (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 and full fiscal year 2016, which ended December 31, 2016.

ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen said, "We remain optimistic about the budgetary environment and the prospects for continued growth. In 2016, ManTech experienced strong contract awards, revenue growth and excellent cash flow. Furthermore, the company showed year-over-year improvement on numerous metrics including growth in operating income, net income and EPS, as well as improvement in the respective margins. We also made two targeted acquisitions in the growing markets of cyber and health IT; Oceans Edge Cyber and Edaptive Systems, which enhanced our capabilities and positioning within U.S. Cyber Command and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, respectively. Together with the strong management team, dedicated and talented employees, our differentiated capabilities and the investments made over the past few years, ManTech is well positioned for success in 2017."

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $394.2 million, compared to $402.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Revenues for the year were $1.60 billion, up 3% compared to $1.55 billion in fiscal year 2015.

Operating income was $21.3 million for the quarter and $91.0 million for the full year. Operating margin was 5.4% for the quarter and 5.7% for the full year. Net income was $13.7 million for the quarter and $56.4 million for the fiscal year. Diluted earnings per share was $0.35 for the quarter and $1.47 for the full year. All annual profit figures were significantly higher than comparable figures for 2015.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $13 million. For the year, cash flow from operations totaled $96 million or 1.7 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 73 days, an increase of 5 days compared to the fourth quarter of 2015.

During the quarter, the company paid $8.1 million, or $0.21 per share, as part of its regular cash dividend program to its common stockholders of record as of December 9, 2016. As of December 31, 2016, the company had $65 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 24, 2017, to all common stockholders of record as of March 10, 2017, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. The annual yield is approximately 2.1% based on the average of recent trading prices. Future declarations of dividends and their record and payment dates are subject to the final determination of ManTech's Board of Directors.

Contract Awards

Kevin M. Phillips, ManTech President and Chief Operating Officer said, "I am pleased with our differentiated capabilities and strong market position which has enabled us to continue winning new business. The work won in 2016 weighed towards cyber, IT solutions and intelligence and systems engineering support. These recent contract awards provide the solid foundation for growth in 2017."

Contract awards (bookings) totaled $460 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.2. For the year, contract awards totaled $2.3 billion for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.4. Book-to-bill ratios for both the quarter and the fiscal year reflect an improving awards environment and strong market positioning for ManTech. Proposal activity remains brisk, and the company expects contract awards to continue at a strong pace in 2017. Large, single award contracts contributing to the quarterly bookings include:

  • Worldwide Field Software Support for the Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Software Engineering Center (SEC). Under a 3 year contract valued up to $152 million, ManTech is supporting the U.S. Army by ensuring operational readiness by developing, providing and integrating and maintaining C4ISR, logistics and business software.
  • Combat Weapons Systems Support for the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. Under a 5 year contract valued at up to $87 million, ManTech is continuing its support of the U.S. Navy by providing test and evaluation support to its weapons and combat systems to include Aegis, Aegis BMD, SSDS, DDG-1000 and littoral combat ship platforms.

Additional contract awards in the quarter include several extensions to existing contracts and new contracts from classified customers.
