Vangent, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2009 Results

Total Second Quarter Revenue Increases 14% Year Over Year (August 11, 2009)

ARLINGTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/11/09 -- Vangent, Inc., a leading global provider of information management and strategic business process outsourcing services, today announced its second quarter 2009 results.

Quarter-to-Quarter Comparison

Vangent reported revenue of $141.0 million for the quarter ended June 27, 2009, an increase of $17.1 million or 14% compared to $123.9 million in the year ago period.

The increase in total revenue reflected a $19.8 million increase in revenue for the Government Group, primarily attributable to contracts with the Department of Defense, including the Traumatic Brain Injury contract with the Military Health System; the Department of State, specifically our work on the National Passport Information Center, as well as increased revenue with our contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A $3.2 million increase in Human Capital Group revenue also contributed to the higher revenue in the second quarter, driven by strong growth from Vangent's contract with the United States Air Force to modernize the Royal Saudi Air Force's learning infrastructure. Partially offsetting these increases was a $4.6 million, or 22%, decline in International Group revenue due primarily to changes in foreign currency exchange rates.


Operating income totaled $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2009, an increase of $2.1 million compared to $1.5 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating income was primarily attributable to increases in Government Group revenue and reduced general and administrative costs compared with the 2008 period.

Vangent reported a net loss of $6.1 million for the three months ended June 27, 2009, an improvement from a net loss of $8.6 million for the comparable year ago period. Adjusted EBITDA increased 9% to $13.2 million for the second quarter of 2009, compared with $12.1 million for the quarter ended June 28, 2008.

Contract Awards and Backlog

New business awards during the second quarter of 2009, which totaled $40 million, included a five-year, $15 million contract from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management to provide Open Season Services as part of the Federal Employee Health Benefits program, extending Vangent's 24-year partnership with the agency.

Vangent won its first contract funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 as a subcontractor to Sallie Mae to provide operations, project management, software integration and testing services in support of the U.S. Department of Education's Federal Student Aid Title IV Student Loan Management Servicing program.

Vangent's total contract backlog, which is the amount of revenue the Company expects to realize over the remaining term of the contracts, including the base period and all option years, increased to $2.3 billion at June 27, 2009, representing an $800 million increase from March 28, 2009. The increase in total contract backlog was primarily attributable to the four-year extension of the Company's contract with CMS to May 2013.

In addition, Vangent was awarded a $10 million, two-year extension on our E-RATE contract with the Schools and Libraries Division of the Universal Service Administrative Company which supports the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to assist schools and libraries across the U.S. obtain affordable telecommunications and Internet access.

Vangent's funded backlog, which is the portion for which funding has been authorized, was $434.2 million at June 27, 2009, an increase of $26.7 million from March 28, 2009.

"Our business delivered a strong performance this quarter with significant year over year gains in Total Revenue, Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA," said Mac Curtis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vangent. "These accomplishments reflect our continued focus on cost management and our ability to capitalize on our experience and expertise to further diversify our operations through key new business wins and extensions. In the midst of this challenging economy, Vangent has continued to prove its value proposition to its customers while continuing to generate strong operational momentum, positioning the Company for a strong second half of 2009."

Management uses this measure as an indicator of operating performance. EBITDA is not an indicator of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") or a measure of liquidity and may not be comparable to similarly captioned information reported by other companies. In addition, it should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, income (loss) before income taxes, cash flows from operating activities, or other traditional indicators of operating performance. (b) Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure used to calculate the leverage ratio, a financial covenant under the Company's senior secured credit facility. Adjusted EBITDA is adjusted to exclude unusual and non-recurring items including (i) noncash goodwill impairment charge, (ii) equity-based compensation expense, (ii) non-recurring contract settlement costs, and (iii) certain costs resulting from our separation from Pearson plc net of certain overhead and infrastructure costs.
