Revenue was $633 million, up 4% from the first quarter of 2020. In the quarter, revenue growth was driven by a combination of recent contract awards and our acquisitions.

Operating income was $42.4 million for the quarter, up 9% from the first quarter of 2020. Net income was $32.3 million and diluted earnings per share ("EPS") was $0.79, up 13% and 11% from the first quarter of 2020, respectively.

EBITDA was $61.6 million for the quarter, up 12% from the first quarter of 2020, representing an EBITDA margin of 9.7% for the quarter. Adjusted net income was $36.2 million and adjusted diluted EPS was $0.88, up 11% and 9% from the first quarter of 2020, respectively.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

For the quarter, cash used in operations totaled $8 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 61 days, an increase of 5 days compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.

During the quarter, the Company paid $15.4 million, or $0.38 per share, as part of its regular cash dividend program to its common stockholders of record as of March 12, 2021. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had $6.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and $21.5 million of outstanding borrowings under its $500 million revolving-credit facility, which provides the Company with 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 June 25, 2021, to all common stockholders of record as of June 11, 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 $561 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.9. ManTech's notable single-award contracts in the quarter include:

  • Cybersecurity-as-a-Service for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). ManTech was awarded a new, 5-year contract totaling $123 million to provide cybersecurity engineering and management for the FBI's Office of the CIO.

  • Platform Modernization Engineering for Radar and Electronic Warfare (EW) Systems and Subsystems for the Navy. ManTech was awarded a new, 5-year contract totaling $110 million to provide research, development and intelligent systems engineering for radar and EW systems and subsystems in support of Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane's efforts to modernize legacy platforms.

  • Technical and Analytical Services and Systems Engineering for the Department of Defense (DoD). ManTech was awarded a 5-year contract totaling $61 million to continue providing technical and analytical services and systems engineering in support of the DoD's Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD).

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 $1.4 billion of funded backlog.

Forward Guidance

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

MeasureFiscal 2021 Guidance
Revenue (billion)$2.65 - $2.75
Adjusted Net Income* (million)$142.5 - $147.4
Adjusted Diluted EPS*$3.48 - $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, "We remain focused on continuing our steadfast financial execution augmented with disciplined capital allocation to create long-term shareholder value."

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