As a result of increased demand for our services and solutions, revenues for the quarter were $497.1 million, up 8% organically compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. Revenues for the year were $1.96 billion, up 14% compared to 2017. For the year, revenue growth was driven by a combination of organic expansion from recent contract awards and acquisitions.

Operating income was $28.6 million for the quarter, up 11% compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. For the year, operating income was $112.7 million, up 15% compared to 2017. Operating margin was up compared to the fourth quarter of 2017 and also up for the year compared to 2017.

The 2017 fourth quarter results included a tax benefit of $51 million from the re-measurement of our existing deferred tax assets and liabilities due to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. This re-measurement caused by the Tax Act in 2017, a one-time item, has been removed from adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share for 2017, however, no adjustments have been made to 2018. Net income was up 14% compared to adjusted net income from the fourth quarter of 2017, and for the year net income was up 29% compared to 2017 adjusted net income. Diluted earnings per share was up 11% compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share from the fourth quarter of 2017 and for the year diluted earnings per share was up 27% compared to 2017 adjusted diluted earnings per share.

Cash Management and Capital Deployment

  Three Months Ended December 31,   Year Ended December 31,
(Dollars In Millions) 2018   2017   2018   2017
Net Income $20.2   $68.4   $82.1   $114.1
Cash Flow From (Used In) Operations -$0.8   $37.7   $93.4   $153.0
Operating Cash Flow Multiple of Net Income —x   0.6x   1.1x   1.3x
Capital Expenditures $5.9   $28.0   $35.1   $38.9
Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) 73   61        
Cash and Cash Equivalents, End of Period $5.3   $9.5        
Current and Long Term Debt, End of Period $7.5   $31.0        

For the year, cash flow from operations totaled $93 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO) were 73 days, an increase of 12 days compared to the fourth quarter of 2017.

During the quarter, the Company paid $9.9 million, or $0.25 per share, as part of its regular cash dividend program to its common stockholders of record as of December 7, 2018. As of December 31, 2018, the Company had $5.3 million in cash and cash equivalents and $7.5 million of outstanding borrowings on its $500 million revolving-credit facility, which provides the Company with ample financial capacity to pursue acquisitions and issue dividends while maintaining a strong balance sheet.

The Company has increased the amount of its quarterly cash dividend from $0.25 to $0.27 per share. The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.27 to be paid on March 22, 2019 to all common stockholders of record as of March 8, 2019, as part of its regular quarterly cash dividend program. Based on the average of recent trading prices the new annual yield is approximately 1.9%. 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 $610 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.2. Nearly 80% of the awards won in the quarter were with classified customers for recompetes and contract expansions. For the year, contract awards totaled $3.4 billion for a book-to-bill ratio of 1.8. In 2018, approximately 62% of the awards were for new business. Book-to-bill ratios for both the quarter and the year reflect a healthy awards environment and ManTech's strong market positioning. Proposal activity remains robust and the Company expects contract awards to continue at a healthy pace in 2019.

Forward Guidance

The Company expects to achieve revenue, net income, and diluted earnings per share in 2019 as specified in the table below.

Measure Fiscal 2019 Guidance
Revenue (billion) $2.05B - $2.15B
Net Income (million) $86.9M - $92.1M
Diluted Earnings per Share $2.15 - $2.28

The guidance is supported by a backlog of business at the end of the year of $8.4 billion, including $1.3 billion of funded backlog, as well as a strong pipeline of new opportunities and improving government funding levels.

ManTech Chief Financial Officer Judith L. Bjornaas said, “I am pleased with our strong finish to 2018. The momentum of the business gives me confidence in forecasting continued growth in 2019. We will remain focused on program execution excellence and delivering solutions that meet our customers' mission critical needs."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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. These measures include adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Each of these calculations excludes the impact of the re-measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities, and therefore is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe these are important calculations to help investors understand actual results compared to guidance and expectations communicated prior to the enactment of the Tax Act. All adjustments described have been made only to the fourth quarter of 2017 and full year 2017 results, no adjustments were made to 2018 results.
