Operating Income $42.5   $40.2   $186.8   $158.0
Net Income $30.1   $32.2   $137.0   $120.5
Diluted EPS $0.73   $0.79   $3.35   $2.97
               
Non-GAAP Financial Measures*              
EBITDA $62.1   $59.2   $263.9   $228.3

*Information about ManTech's use of non-GAAP financial measures, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, is provided under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Revenues were $634 million for the quarter and $2.55 billion for the year, down 1% and up 1% over the comparable 2020 periods, respectively. For the full year, revenue growth was driven by a combination of continued organic expansion from recent contract awards and acquisitions, partially offset by contracts that ended during the year and reduced scope of work on some contracts including contracts with variable material purchase requirements.

Operating income was $42.5 million for the quarter and $186.8 million for the year, up 6% and 18% over the comparable 2020 periods, respectively.

EBITDA was $62.1 million for the quarter and $263.9 million for the year, up 5% and 16% over the comparable 2020 periods, respectively. EBITDA margin was 9.8% for the quarter and 10.3% for the year, both showing improvement compared to respective 2020 periods.

Fourth quarter declines in net income, adjusted net income, diluted earnings per share ("EPS") and adjusted diluted EPS were driven by a higher tax rate as a result of several discrete factors.

Net income was $30.1 million for the quarter and $137.0 million for the year, down 6% and up 14% over the comparable 2020 periods, respectively. Diluted EPS was $0.73 for the quarter and $3.35 for the year, down 8% and up 13% over the comparable 2020 periods, respectively.

Adjusted net income was $33.9 million for the quarter and $151.8 million for the year, down 6% and up 11% over the comparable 2020 periods, respectively. Adjusted diluted EPS was $0.83 for the quarter and $3.71 for the year, down 7% and up 10% over the comparable 2020 periods, respectively.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

For the year, cash flow from operations totaled $212 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 68 days, an increase of 12 days compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.

During the quarter, the Company paid $15.5 million, or $0.38 per share, as part of its regular cash dividend program to its common stockholders of record as of December 3, 2021. Also in the quarter, the Company completed two strategic acquisitions totaling $371 million. As of December 31, 2021, the Company had $53.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and $300 million of outstanding borrowings on its $1.1 billion credit facility, which provides the Company with ample financial capacity to pursue acquisitions and issue dividends, while maintaining a strong balance sheet.

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.41 to be paid on March 25, 2022 to all common stockholders of record as of March 11, 2022, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. The Company has increased the amount of its quarterly cash dividend from $0.38 to $0.41 per share. Based on the average of recent trading prices the new annual yield is approximately 2.0%. 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 $601 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9. For the year, contract awards totaled $2.7 billion for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.1.

The Company's backlog of business at the end of the year was a record $10.6 billion, including $1.6 billion of funded backlog.

Forward Guidance

The Company expects to achieve revenue, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share in 2022 as specified in the table below.

Measure Fiscal 2022 Guidance
Revenue (billion) $2.6 - $2.7
Adjusted Net Income* (million) $141.3 - $148.5
Adjusted Diluted EPS* $3.42 - $3.60

*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 that we delivered strong full year EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS results with remarkable growth across these measures. In 2022, we are focused on leveraging our strong market position to deliver on our long-term strategic and financial targets."

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 (earnings) 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.
