ICF International Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results
  • Total Revenue Increased 7 Percent
  • Operating Income Up 23 Percent
  • Net Income Increased 25 Percent; Diluted EPS of $0.45
  • Contract Awards Increased 29 Percent to $209 Million

FAIRFAX, Va., Aug 01, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ICF International, Inc. (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Second Quarter and First Half 2011 Results and Highlights

For the second quarter, total revenue reached $213.4 million, a 6.9 percent increase over the $199.6 million reported in the 2010 second quarter. Net income was $9.0 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, representing a 24.5 percent increase over net income of $7.2 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, earned in the comparable 2010 period. Operating income increased 22.5 percent to $15.5 million from the $12.7 million reported in last year's second quarter.

"ICF's strong second quarter 2011 performance demonstrates the advantages of our diversified business mix. Domestic commercial business revenues increased 52.3 percent year-over-year, led by significant growth in energy efficiency work and infrastructure project management, as well as a pickup in energy-related transaction activity," said Sudhakar Kesavan, chairman and chief executive officer. "We continue to achieve significant growth in profitability driven by the strength of our commercial business and success in managing costs."

"First half 2011 revenue growth was 9.1 percent, operating income increased 27.1 percent, and net income was up 32.2 percent, indicative of ICF's significant operating leverage," Mr. Kesavan noted.

"We are particularly pleased with the growth and strategic importance of second quarter contract awards, which included our first task order win under the $4 billion Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ID/IQ that ICF was awarded in 2010. Gaining larger implementation contracts is an integral part of our growth strategy."

Backlog and New Business Awards

Backlog was $1.3 billion at the end of the 2011 second quarter. Funded backlog was $579 million, or 43 percent of the total.

The total value of contracts awarded in the second quarter of 2011 was $209 million compared to $162 million in 2010, an increase of 29 percent.

Key contracts won in the second quarter included:

  • Energy: A new contract valued at more than $40 million with the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability. ICF will provide technical, IT, and management support to assist the office's mission to modernize the electric grid and enhance the security and reliability of the U.S. energy infrastructure.
  • Health Information Technology: A new $25.9 million task order under the contract supporting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Information Management Services (CIMS), which was announced in October 2010. Under this task order, ICF International will support the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention in its efforts to reduce HIV transmission, identify those living with HIV, and link them with appropriate care.
  • Information Technology Management: A new $27.5 million contract with the Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Under the contract, ICF will support the strategic direction and management responsibilities of the NIH CIO with IT market research, executive program and communications services, and other technical support services.
  • Public Health: A $16.3 million re-compete contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, Office of the Surgeon General, Office of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps. ICF will provide the office with communications, outreach, deployment operations, regional coordination, and IT services to help engage public health volunteers.
  • Energy Efficiency: Two new contracts totaling $13.6 million to support a major U.S. utility. ICF's responsibilities under the two contracts include commercial and residential energy efficiency, demand side management, whole house retrofit programs, and contractor recruitment, training, and program support.
  • Commercial Sector: In addition to the energy efficiency projects already noted, ICF was awarded more than 300 additional domestic and international commercial projects in the areas of energy efficiency, environmental management, fuels, renewable and grid strategy, asset valuation, and aviation.

Summary and Outlook

"ICF continues to gain share in its key markets, and we believe that our recent awards will ensure continued future growth in our federal business. We also expect our commercial business to continue to show double-digit revenue growth and drive significant growth in profitability," Mr. Kesavan said.

"Based on first-half performance, funded backlog levels, and our existing portfolio of business, we are narrowing our full year 2011 revenue guidance and increasing our guidance for earnings per diluted share (EPS). Revenues for the year are expected to be within the range of $835 million to $850 million, which represents 10.2 percent year-over-year growth at the midpoint, and fully diluted earnings per share are expected to range from $1.69 to $1.77, equivalent to 25.4 percent growth at the midpoint. EPS estimates are based upon approximately 19.9 million weighted average shares outstanding and an effective tax rate of 40.0 percent," noted Mr. Kesavan.

"For the third quarter of 2011, the Company expects revenues to range from $214 million to $220 million and earnings per diluted share to range from $0.43 to $0.47, based on approximately 20.0 million weighted average shares outstanding and an effective tax rate of 40.0 percent," Mr. Kesavan concluded.
