ICF International Reports Second Quarter 2007 Results

 

 

Fairfax, Virginia, August 9, 2007 -

ICF International, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, reported revenue and earnings growth for the second quarter ended June 30, 2007.

Second Quarter Results

Second quarter 2007 revenue was $190.2 million, an increase of 25.3 percent from the $151.7 million reported for the 2007 first quarter. Earnings from operations were $18.6 million, up 27.0 percent from the $14.7 million reported for the prior quarter. Net income was $11.2 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, compared to net income of $8.7 million, or $0.60 per diluted share in the 2007 first quarter. In last year's second quarter, the Company had revenue of $56.1 million and a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.15 per diluted share that included an unusual charge of $4.3 million for the abandonment of leased facilities.

Revenue from The Road Home contract was $128.6 million in the second quarter of 2007. ICF was awarded this contract in June 2006, by the state of Louisiana's Office of Community Development.

"ICF's strong second quarter performance reflected both a solid sequential increase in our delivery of advisory and implementation services to ICF's historical government and corporate clients, as well as an accelerated pace of our work on The Road Home contract," said Sudhakar Kesavan, ICF Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Revenue for the second quarter of 2007, excluding revenue from The Road Home Contract, increased 12.1 percent from the first quarter of 2007, and 10.6 percent on a year-over-year basis," Mr. Kesavan added.

"On June 28, 2007, we announced the acquisition of Z-Tech Corporation, a strategically important transaction that is expected to generate annualized revenues of $25 million and to be accretive to ICF's earnings beginning in the 2007 third quarter. We believe that Z-Tech's expertise in health information technology services, combined with ICF's established position in health communications and policy, will give us a greater competitive edge in serving the large and growing federal health care market," Mr. Kesavan said.

Backlog and New Business Award Highlights

Backlog, excluding The Road Home contract and the Z-Tech acquisition, was $406 million at the end of the 2007 second quarter, up 13.1 percent sequentially and 82.1 percent above last year's second quarter. The Company's total backlog excluding Z-Tech was $821 million, of which 68 percent was funded.

The total value of contracts awarded in the second quarter of 2007 was $131 million. These awards are unrelated to The Road Home program.

Key competitive contracts won during the quarter included:

  • Climate Change. ICF was awarded a new Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) valued up to $37 million over five years. Under the multiple-award contract, ICF will provide technical and outreach support services to the EPA for domestic and global climate change initiatives. This contract replaces two smaller ICF contracts. The capacity of this contract is nearly double the amount of the work done under the prior contracts.
  • Training and Management Assistance to Federal Agencies. ICF won two multiple award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contracts with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to provide training and management assistance to federal agencies. ICF was awarded a prime contract under each vehicle. They are each for one year, with four one-year option periods, and provide ICF the opportunity to compete for task orders in both service areas.
  • Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program Implementation. ICF was awarded a recompete task order for up to $26 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to implement the agency's Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) program. The program, established in 1980 following the 1979 accident at Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station, is designed to ensure the safety of residents living near nuclear power plants. The task order has been partially funded for $5.1 million. It is for 10 months, with three one-year options.
  • Energy Efficient Homes. ICF won a $2.5 million new contract to implement the New Homes with ENERGY STAR® Program in Massachusetts. The program is part of a statewide initiative to accelerate construction of homes that qualify for the ENERGY STAR rating. The program also actively promotes installation of energy-efficient appliances and solar photovoltaic, or PV, in construction of qualifying affordable housing. The contract is for 12 months, with the option for an additional 24-month extension.

Outlook

The Company expects that its historical business will continue to show solid year-over-year growth in the second half of 2007. As of the application deadline of July 31, The Road Home program received more than 180,000 applications. The original design of the program projected up to 123,000 applications. This unexpected increase in volume has extended the timeline for the accelerated pace of the Company's efforts in Louisiana. Consequently, the Company is raising its 2007 revenue guidance to a range of $670 million to $700 million and anticipates third quarter 2007 revenue to range from $170 million to $185 million. For both the quarter and the year, the Company seeks to earn net income equal to approximately five percent of revenues.

Our preliminary guidance for revenues for the full year 2008 is approximately $500 million, and the Company seeks to earn net income for 2008 equal to approximately 5 percent of revenues.
