Financial Results

VSE revenues increased approximately $3.4 million (up 1%) and $55 million (up 13%) for the three and six month periods of 2009 compared to the same periods of 2008. The increase is primarily due to: the Route Clearing Vehicle Modernization Program in our Communications and Engineering Division (CED); an increase in International Group revenues; growth in the equipment refurbishment services provided by our Engineering and Logistics Division (ELD); and an increase in G&B Solutions (G&B) revenues due partly to G&B’s inclusion in our financial results for a full six months in 2009.

VSE net income increased approximately $1.7 million (up 35%) and $2.7 million (up 32%) for the three and six month periods of 2009 compared to the same periods of 2008. The increase in net income was primarily due to profits on our ELD equipment refurbishment services; the inclusion of G&B in our financial results for a full six months in 2009; and profits on the Route Clearing Vehicle Modernization Program.

VSE’s funded backlog was approximately $536 million at June 30, 2009 compared to approximately $567 million at December 31, 2008.

CEO Comments

VSE CEO Mo Gauthier commented, “Our second quarter net income reflects an improvement consistent with our previously stated goal of increasing our profit margins. Since the beginning of 2009 we have added approximately 500 new employees as we increase our revenue generated by direct labor as compared to revenue from subcontractors. We believe that our position in the DoD market and our growth in Federal Civilian agencies will position us for steady and incremental progress; however the government funding priorities during this transition year may impact us in ways that are not anticipated. We look forward to reporting on our progress.”
