FAIRFAX, Va., Nov. 01, 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 third quarter of fiscal year 2017, which ended September 30, 2017.

"In the third quarter, ManTech delivered the second strongest quarterly bookings and book-to-bill ratio in company history, with the majority of the contract awards coming from new work. Our robust bookings combined with continued organic revenue growth and our acquisition of InfoZen illustrates the successful and synchronized execution of our growth-focused strategy," said ManTech Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George J. Pedersen.

"ManTech's performance throughout 2017 has been exceptional. The momentum in the business continues to build and we are focused on program execution to ensure that the mission-critical needs of our customers are met,” said ManTech President and Chief Operating Officer Kevin M. Phillips.

Summary Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter were $422.7 million, up 2% from $415.4 million in the third quarter of 2016. Revenue growth continues to be largely driven by direct labor expansion as a result of our recent contract awards.

Operating income for the quarter was $23.1 million, down 2% compared to the third quarter of 2016, representing an operating margin of 5.5%. For the quarter, net income was $15.2 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.39, up 4% and 3%, respectively, compared to the third quarter of 2016.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $52 million or 3.4 times net income. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 68 days. As of September 30, 2017, the company had $149 million in cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding borrowings on its $500 million revolving-credit facility. After the close of the quarter, ManTech completed its acquisition of InfoZen for approximately $180 million in cash. ManTech funded the acquisition with cash on hand and use of its revolving-credit facility.

The company paid $8.2 million in dividends, or $0.21 per share, to its common stockholders of record as of September 8, 2017. The Board of Directors has declared that the company will pay a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on December 22, 2017, to all common stockholders of record as of December 8, 2017, 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 $1.9 billion in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 4.5. Approximately 70% of the awards were for new business. Over the trailing 12 months, the book-to-bill ratio is 2.2. Large, single-award contracts contributing to the quarterly bookings include:

  • Technical Solutions and Security Support for the Department of State. ManTech was awarded a 10-year contract totaling $817 million to provide comprehensive technical solutions and security support.
  • Managed IT Services for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). ManTech was awarded a 10-year contract totaling $450 million to manage and transform JPL's Institutional Computing Environment (ICE).
  • Force Structure and Modeling Support for Air Force Studies, Analyses and Assessments Directorate (AF/A9). ManTech was awarded a 5-year contract totaling $37 million to continue providing advisory and assistance services, model and simulation development, training and analysis support.

In the quarter, ManTech also received approximately $400 million in contract awards from classified customers. The balance of the contract awards included several modifications to expand or extend existing contracts and new contracts from primarily defense customers.

The company’s backlog of business at the end of quarter was $6.3 billion, up 28% compared to the second quarter of 2017; funded backlog was $1.5 billion, up 40% sequentially.
