Item 8.01

Other Events

As previously disclosed, on May 13, 2022, ManTech International Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“ManTech”), entered into that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended from time to time, the “Merger Agreement”) with Moose Bidco, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”) and Moose Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which, among other things, Merger Sub will merge with and into ManTech (the “Merger”), with ManTech surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. In connection with the proposed Merger, on August 4, 2022, ManTech filed a definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A (the “Proxy Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) relating to the special meeting of ManTech’s stockholders to approve the proposed Merger, which is scheduled to be held on September 7, 2022 (the “ManTech Special Meeting”). ManTech commenced mailing the Proxy Statement to ManTech’s stockholders on or about August 4, 2022.

Following the announcement of the Merger Agreement, as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, four complaints have been filed as individual actions in United States District Courts. Three of such complaints have been filed with respect to the Merger in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and are captioned Stein v. ManTech Intl Corp., et al., Case No. 1:22-cv-06501, Jones v. ManTech Intl Corp., et al., Case No. 1:22-cv-06905, and Lawrence v. ManTech Intl Corp., et al., Case No. 1:22-cv-06873. The other complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware and is captioned Morgan v. ManTech Intl Corp., et al., Case No. 1:22-cv-1049. The foregoing complaints are referred to collectively as the “Merger Actions.”

The Merger Actions generally allege, among other things, that the Proxy Statement and/or the preliminary proxy statement filed on Schedule 14A by ManTech on July 1, 2022 (the “Preliminary Proxy Statement”) misrepresent and/or omit certain purportedly material information related to the Merger, rendering the Proxy Statement false and misleading in violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as well as Rule 14a-9 promulgated thereunder. The Merger Actions seek, among other relief, (i) injunctive relief enjoining consummation of the Merger, unless and until certain additional information is disclosed, (ii) to recover damages and costs (including plaintiffs’ attorneys’ fees and experts’ fees) and (iii) other relief the court may deem just and proper. In addition, as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, five purported stockholders sent letters to ManTech alleging similar deficiencies in the Proxy Statement and/or the Preliminary Proxy Statement to those noted in the above-referenced Merger Actions (collectively, the “Demand Letters”). If additional similar complaints are filed or demand letters are received, absent new or different allegations that are material, ManTech will not necessarily disclose such additional filings and/or letters.

ManTech believes that the claims in the Merger Actions and Demand Letters are without merit, and that no supplemental disclosures are required under applicable law and vigorously denies that it has committed any violation of law or duties or engaged in any alleged wrongful conduct, including specifically denying all allegations of wrongdoing in the Merger Actions and Demand Letters. However, solely to moot the unmeritorious disclosure claims, avoid the risk of delaying or otherwise adversely affecting the Merger and minimize the risk, costs, burden, nuisance and uncertainties inherent in defending litigation, and without admitting any liability or wrongdoing, ManTech has determined voluntarily to make the supplemental disclosures to the Proxy Statement set forth below (the “Supplemental Disclosures”) in response to the Merger Actions and Demand Letters. Nothing in the Supplemental Disclosures shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable laws of any of the disclosures set forth herein.

The Section of the Proxy Statement entitled “Opinion of Our Financial Advisor” is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

The disclosure in the paragraph following the heading “Illustrative Present Value of Future Share Price Analysis” on page 49 of the Proxy Statement is hereby amended and restated as follows:

Goldman Sachs performed an illustrative analysis of the implied present value of an illustrative future value per share of Company Common Stock, which is designed to provide an indication of the present value of a theoretical future value of a company’s equity as a function of such company’s financial multiples. For this analysis, Goldman Sachs used the Forecasts for each of the fiscal years 2023 to 2025. Goldman Sachs first calculated the implied values per share of Company Common Stock as of March 31, 2022 for each of the fiscal years 2022 to 2024, by applying next twelve-month enterprise value to EBITDA multiples, which are referred to as the “NTM EV/EBITDA,” of 11.5x to 14.5x to EBITDA estimates for the Company for each of the fiscal years 2023 to 2025. These illustrative multiple estimates were derived by Goldman Sachs utilizing its professional judgment and experience, taking into account historical NTM EV/EBITDA multiples for the Company. Goldman Sachs then subtracted the amount of the Company’s forecasted net debt of $127 million, $(7) million and $(133) million for each of the fiscal years 2022 to, 2023 and 2024, as provided by the management of the Company, as of the relevant year-end per the Forecasts, from the respective implied enterprise values in order to derive a range of illustrative equity values for the Company for each of the fiscal years 2022 to 2024. Goldman Sachs then divided the results by the projected year-end number of fully diluted outstanding shares of Company Common Stock of 41.6 million as of May 9, 2022, as provided by the management of the Company reflected in the Forecasts, to derive a range of implied future share of Company Common Stock prices (excluding dividends). Goldman Sachs then added the cumulative dividends per share expected to be paid to the Company stockholders in the second, third, and fourth fiscal quarters of 2022 and each of the fiscal years 2023 and 2024, using the Forecasts. Goldman Sachs then


discounted the December 31, 2022 to December 31, 2024 implied future share of Company Common Stock price values (including cumulative dividends) back to March 31, 2022 using an illustrative discount rate of 10.0%, reflecting an estimate of the Company’s cost of equity. Goldman Sachs derived such discount rate by application of the Capital Asset Pricing Model, which requires certain company-specific inputs, including a beta for the company, as well as certain financial metrics for the United States financial markets generally. This analysis resulted in a range of implied present values of $67 to $86 per share of Company Common Stock, rounded to the nearest dollar.

The disclosure in the paragraph following the heading “Illustrative Discounted Cash Flow Analysis” beginning on page 49, and carrying over onto page 50, of the Proxy Statement is hereby amended and restated as follows:

Using the Forecasts, Goldman Sachs performed an illustrative discounted cash flow analysis on the Company. Using discount rates ranging from 9.00% to 10.00%, reflecting estimates of the Company’s weighted average cost of capital, Goldman Sachs discounted to present value as of March 31, 2022 (i) estimates of unlevered free cash flow for the Company for the years 2022 through 2026 as reflected in the Forecasts and (ii) a range of illustrative terminal values for the Company, which were calculated by applying exit terminal year EBITDA multiples ranging from 12.5x to 16.0x, to a terminal year estimate of the EBITDA to be generated by the Company, as reflected in the Forecasts. Goldman Sachs derived such discount rates by application of the Capital Asset Pricing Model, which requires certain company-specific inputs, including the Company’s target capital structure weightings, the cost of long-term debt, after-tax yield on permanent excess cash, if any, future applicable marginal cash tax rate and a beta for the Company, as well as certain financial metrics for the United States financial markets generally. The range of exit terminal year EBITDA multiples was estimated by Goldman Sachs utilizing its professional judgment and experience, taking into account the Forecasts and the Company’s historical LTM EV/EBITDA multiples. Goldman Sachs derived ranges of illustrative enterprise values for the Company by adding the ranges of present values it derived above. Goldman Sachs then subtracted from the range of illustrative enterprise values it derived for the Company the net debt of the Company of $240 million as of March 31, 2022, as provided by the management of the Company, to derive a range of illustrative equity values for the Company. Goldman Sachs then divided the range of illustrative equity values it derived by the number of fully diluted outstanding shares of Company Common Stock of the Company of 41.6 million as of May 9, 2022, as provided by the management of the Company, to derive a range of illustrative present values per share of Company Common Stock ranging from $73 to $94, rounded to the nearest dollar.


The disclosure following the heading “Selected Transactions Analysis” on page 50 of the Proxy Statement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

Goldman Sachs analyzed certain information relating to the following selected transactions in the government services industry since January 2018.:

For each of the selected transactions where information was publicly available, Goldman Sachs calculated and compared the implied next twelve-month enterprise value to EBITDA multiple or the implied last twelve-month enterprise value to EBITDA multiple, which are referred to, respectively, as the “NTM EV/EBITDA” and the “LTM EV/EBITDA,” of the applicable target company based on the total consideration paid in the transaction as a multiple of the target company’s EBITDA based on publicly available information at the time each such selected transaction was announced. While none of the target companies that participated in the selected transactions are directly comparable to the Company, the target companies that participated in the selected transactions are companies that, for the purposes of analysis, may be considered similar to the Company with respect to certain of its results, market size and product profile.

The following table presents the results of this analysis:

 

     Selected Transactions  
   Range      Median  

NTM EV/EBITDA

     9.0x-13.2x        11.2x  

LTM EV/EBITDA

     11.5x-15.1x        12.3x  

Based on the results of the foregoing calculations and Goldman Sachs’ analyses of the various transactions and its professional judgment, Goldman Sachs applied a reference range of LTM EV/EBITDA multiples of 11.0x to 15.0x to the Company’s EBITDA for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, as reflected in the Forecasts, to derive a range of implied enterprise values for the Company. Goldman Sachs then subtracted from the range of implied enterprise values the net debt of the Company of $240 million as of March 31, 2022, as provided by the management of the Company, to derive a range of illustrative equity values for the Company. Goldman Sachs then divided the results by the number of fully diluted outstanding shares of Company Common Stock of 41.6 million as of May 9, 2022, as provided by the management of the Company, to derive a range of implied values per share of Company Common Stock of $64 to $90, rounded to the nearest dollar.

The disclosure in the paragraph following the heading “Premia Analysis” on page 50 of the Proxy Statement is hereby amended and restated as follows:

Goldman Sachs reviewed and analyzed, using publicly available information, the acquisition premia for all 272 cash and mixed cash and stock transactions announced during the time period from January 1, 2016 through May 12, 2022 involving a public company based in the United States as the target where the disclosed enterprise values for the transaction were between $1 billion and $10 billion using information obtained from Thomson Reuters, and excluding deals in the Financial Institutions, Real Estate and Energy sectors. For the entire period, using


publicly available information, Goldman Sachs calculated the median, 25th percentile and 75th percentile premiums of the price paid in all cash and mixed cash and stock transactions relative to the target’s last undisturbed closing stock price prior to announcement of the transaction. This analysis indicated a median premium of 21% across the period. This analysis also indicated a 25th percentile premium of 10% and 75th percentile premium of 40% across the period. Using this analysis, Goldman Sachs applied a reference range of illustrative premiums of 10% to 40% to the undisturbed closing price per share of Company Common Stock of $72.82 as of February 2, 2022 and calculated a range of implied equity values per share of Company Common Stock of $80 to $102, rounded to the nearest dollar.

The disclosure in the final paragraph of page 51, carrying over onto page 52, of the Proxy Statement, is hereby amended and restated as follows:

Goldman Sachs and its affiliates are engaged in advisory, underwriting and financing, principal investing, sales and trading, research, investment management and other financial and non-financial activities and services for various persons and entities. Goldman Sachs and its affiliates and employees, and funds or other entities they manage or in which they invest or have other economic interests or with which they co-invest, may at any time purchase, sell, hold or vote long or short positions and investments in securities, derivatives, loans, commodities, currencies, credit default swaps and other financial instruments of the Company, Parent, any of their respective affiliates and third parties, including Carlyle, an affiliate of Parent, and any of its respective affiliates and portfolio companies, or any currency or commodity that may be involved in the Merger. Goldman Sachs acted as financial advisor to the Company in connection with, and participated in certain of the negotiations leading to, the Merger. During the two year period ended May 13, 2022, the Investment Banking Division of Goldman Sachs has not been engaged by the Company or its affiliates to provide financial advisory or underwriting services for which Goldman Sachs has recognized compensation. Goldman Sachs also has provided certain financial advisory and/or underwriting services to Carlyle and/or its affiliates and portfolio companies, from time to time for which the Investment Banking Division of Goldman Sachs has received, and may receive, compensation, including having acted as book runner with respect to the offering by Pharmaceutical Product Development LLC, a portfolio company of Carlyle, of its 4.625% Senior Notes due 2025 and 5.000% Senior Notes due 2028 (aggregate principal amount $1,200,000,000) in May 2020; as book runner with respect to the offering by Veritas Software Corporation, a portfolio company of Carlyle, of its 7.500% Secured Notes due 2025 (aggregate principal amount $750,000,000) in November 2020; as book runner with respect to the initial public offering by Ortho Clinical Diagnostics Inc, a portfolio company of Carlyle, of 76,000,000 of its ordinary shares in January 2021; as financial advisor to Logoplaste Consultores Tecnicos SA, a portfolio company of Carlyle, with respect to its sale of a majority stake in July 2021; as book runner with respect to the offering by Medline Industries Inc, a portfolio company of Carlyle, of its Term Loan B due 2028 (aggregate principal amount $7,270,000,000) in October 2021; as financial advisor to Novolex Holdings LLC, a portfolio company of Carlyle, with respect to its sale of a majority stake in February 2022; and as book runner with respect to the offering by Novolex Holdings LLC, a portfolio company of Carlyle, of its 6.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2029 and 8.750% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2030 (aggregate principal amount $1,610,000,000) in March 2022. During the two year period ended May 13, 2022, Goldman Sachs has recognized compensation for financial advisory and/or underwriting services provided by its Investment Banking Division to Carlyle and/or its affiliates and portfolio companies of approximately $150 million. Goldman Sachs may also in the future provide financial advisory and/or underwriting services to the Company, Parent, Carlyle and their respective affiliates and/or, as applicable, portfolio companies for which the Investment Banking Division of Goldman Sachs may receive compensation. Affiliates of Goldman Sachs also may have co-invested with Carlyle and its affiliates from time to time and may have invested in limited partnership units of affiliates of Carlyle from time to time and may do so in the future.
