As a result of strong continued demand for our services and solutions, revenue was $611 million, up 22% from the first quarter of 2019. In the quarter, revenue growth was driven by a combination of organic expansion from recent contract awards and acquisitions.

Operating income was $38.9 million for the quarter, up 36% from the first quarter of 2019. Net income was $28.7 million and diluted earnings per share ("EPS") was $0.71, up 36% and 34% from the first quarter of 2019, respectively.

EBITDA was $55.0 million for the quarter, up 34% from the first quarter of 2019, representing an EBITDA margin of 9.0% for the quarter. Adjusted net income was $32.7 million and adjusted diluted EPS was $0.81, up 33% and 31% from the first quarter of 2019, respectively.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

For the quarter, cash flow from operations totaled $43 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 64 days, an improvement of 6 days compared to the first quarter of 2019.

During the quarter, the Company paid $12.9 million, or $0.32 per share, as part of its regular cash dividend program to its common stockholders of record as of March 6, 2020. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had $88.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $115.0 million of outstanding borrowings on its $500 million revolving-credit facility, which provides the Company with ample financial capacity to fund operations, pursue acquisitions and issue dividends while maintaining a strong balance sheet.

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.32 to be paid June 19, 2020, to all common stockholders of record as of June 5, 2020, 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 $1.1 billion in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.8. In the first quarter, over 90% of the awards were for new business. Book-to-bill ratio for the quarter reflects a healthy awards environment and ManTech's strong market positioning. ManTech's notable single-award contracts in the quarter include:

  • Modernization of Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft (MPRA) for the Navy. ManTech was awarded a new, 5-year contract totaling $920 million supporting the Remote Sensing Center - National Capital Region and Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane with ISR sensor and electronic intelligence processing modernization efforts on MPRA platforms.

The Company received a number of additional contract awards in the quarter including several extensions to existing contracts and new contracts from various customers.

The Company’s backlog of business at quarter end was $9.3 billion including $1.4 billion of funded backlog.

Forward Guidance

The Company has updated its 2020 guidance for revenue, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share to reflect the current expected impacts related to COVID-19 as specified in the table below.

Measure Fiscal 2020 Guidance
Revenue (million) $2,350 - $2,450
Adjusted Net Income* (million) $120.3 - $125.2
Adjusted Diluted EPS* $2.95 - $3.07

*Information about ManTech's use of non-GAAP financial measures is provided under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures"

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS exclude amortization of acquired intangibles and the related tax impact. The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS, due to inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying these non-GAAP exclusions that are necessary for such reconciliation without unreasonable efforts. Material changes to any one of these items could have significant effect on future GAAP results.

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Judith L. Bjornaas said, "I am pleased with our strong start to 2020 and look forward to building on that foundation. Our backlog offers good visibility and positions us well to sustain our growth trajectory."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

To supplement the review of ManTech's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company has provided non-GAAP calculations of certain financial measures. ManTech uses and refers to EBITDA, EBITDA margin, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures.

ManTech’s management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional useful information regarding the Company’s operational and financial results. These non-GAAP financial measures eliminate the effect of non-cash items such as depreciation of tangible assets and amortization of intangible assets primarily recognized in business combinations as well as the effect of discrete tax items which we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are considered important and frequently utilized by investors and financial analysts covering ManTech’s industry. The Company’s computation of its non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, thus limiting their use for comparability.

The following tables present selected financial data, including the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA is calculated by excluding depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, interest income, other expense, income taxes and equity in losses of unconsolidated subsidiaries from net income.

EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing EBITDA by revenue.

Adjusted net income is calculated by excluding the following items and the related tax impacts from net income: (i) amortization of acquired intangible assets and (ii) discrete tax items.

Adjusted diluted EPS is calculated by dividing adjusted net income by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding.
