Fairfax, Virginia, June 18, 2007 -

 

ICF International is pleased to announce that the firm received the Helios HR Apollo Award™ for excellence in employee growth and development. The firm won in the “Large Company” category, competing with other companies whose employees number more than 1,000.

The 1st Annual Helios Awards were sponsored by Helios HR of Reston, Va., and the Washington, D.C., area chapters of the Society for Human Resources Management. The Helios HR Apollo Awards recognize the professional development outreach for employees in four categories: Large Company, Mid-Size Company, Small Company, and Emerging Company. The panel of judges included industry-recognized experts in the fields of performance management, professional development, and coaching.

“Our employees are at the heart of what makes ICF International a world-class resource for our clients. ICF promotes a collaborative culture where our highly talented and motivated employees work with each other in an environment that fosters personal and professional growth,” said Miriam Wardak, senior vice president of human resources. “We’re honored to be recognized with the Helios HR Apollo Award for our commitment to our employees.”
 
The Helios HR Apollo Awards recognize organizations that promote a continuous learning environment as part of their organizational culture. Criteria for consideration included:  1) creating new and challenging opportunities in support of their commitment; 2) communication of such opportunities; and 3) impact such programs have on the organization.

Caution Concerning Forward-looking Statements

This document may contain “forward-looking statements” as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995—that is, statements related to future—not past—events, plans, and prospects. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify these statements by forward-looking words such as “guidance,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “seek,” “should,” “will,” “would,” or similar words. You should read statements that contain these words carefully because they discuss our future expectations, contain projections of our future results of operations or of our financial position, or state other forward-looking information, and are subject to factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated. For ICF, particular uncertainties that could adversely or positively affect the Company’s future results include but are not limited to: risks related to the government contracting industry, including the timely approval of government budgets, changes in client spending priorities, and the results of government audits and investigations; risks related to our business, including our dependence on contracts with U.S. Federal Government agencies and departments and the State of Louisiana; continued good relations with these and other customers; success in competitive bidding on recompete and new contracts; performance by ICF and its subcontractors under our contract with the State of Louisiana, Office of Community Development, including but not limited to the risks of failure to achieve certain levels of program activities, termination, or material modification of the contract, and political uncertainties relating to The Road Home program; uncertainties as to whether revenues corresponding to the Company’s contract backlog will actually be received; the future of the energy sector of the global economy; our ability to attract and retain management and staff; strategic actions, including attempts to expand our service offerings and client base, the ability to make acquisitions, and the performance and future integration of acquired businesses; risks associated with operations outside the United States, including but not limited to international, regional, and national economic conditions, including the effects of terrorist activities, war, and currency fluctuations; and other risks and uncertainties disclosed in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These uncertainties may cause ICF’s actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in the Company’s forward-looking statements.
