Cash Management and Capital Deployment

For the quarter, cash from operations totaled $139 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 55 days, an increase of 1 day compared to the third 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 September 10, 2021. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $145.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding borrowings under its revolving-credit facility and delayed draw term loan facility. The Company has ample financial capacity to continue funding organic investments, pursue growth-oriented acquisitions and issue dividends while maintaining a strong balance sheet.

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.38 to be paid December 17, 2021, to all common stockholders of record as of December 3, 2021, as part of the Company's 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 $716 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.1. ManTech's notable single-award contracts in the quarter include:

  • Systems Engineering and Integration for the U.S. Space Force. ManTech was awarded a 10-year contract totaling $476 million to continue its support for a wide array of mission critical space launch programs with launch service integration, fleet surveillance and certification for space and missile systems.
     
  • Naval Submarine and Surface Signature Silencing Programs for the Navy. ManTech was awarded a 5-year contract totaling $51 million to continue providing engineering services, data collection, reduction, analysis and reporting for submarine and surface ship acoustical trials.

The Company also 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 $10.1 billion including $1.3 billion of funded backlog.

Forward Guidance

The Company is adjusting the range of its 2021 guidance for revenue, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share as specified in the table below.

Measure Fiscal 2021 Guidance
Revenue (million) $2,550 - $2,575
Adjusted Net Income* (million) $150.2 - $152.2
Adjusted Diluted EPS* $3.66 - $3.71

*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, "Our continued execution has led to strong profitability that is reflected in our revised guidance for the remainder of the year. Despite our changes to revenue guidance, we remain optimistic about ManTech’s opportunity to drive long-term growth. We are also pleased with our ability to deploy capital and remain focused on utilizing our balance sheet to further strengthen our portfolio strategically."

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.
