  (dollars in thousands, except per share data)        
    Three months ended June 30, Six months ended June 30,
2016   2015   % Change 2016   2015   % Change
Revenues $160,473   $131,126   22.4% $304,109   $251,917   20.7%
Operating income $11,879   $11,496   3.3% $24,620   $22,180   11.0%
Net income $5,969   $5,479   8.9% $12,521   $10,699   17.0%
EPS (Diluted) $1.10   $1.02   7.8% $2.32   $1.99   16.6%
   

“We are beginning to see revenue momentum driven by organic growth in our Federal Services Group,” said Maurice “Mo” Gauthier, VSE CEO. “We have begun work on our recently awarded logistics and maintenance contract at Red River Army Depot and the transfer of two frigates to Taiwan under our FMS Program. These two programs have been significant contributors to our revenue increases in the second quarter of 2016. Our strong funded backlog positions us well for the remainder of the year.”

Revenues were $160 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $131 million in the second quarter of 2015. For the first six months, revenues were $304 million in 2016 compared to $252 million in 2015. The revenue increases were primarily the result of increased contract work for our Department of Defense clients, including new contracts that have begun in the past year.

Operating income was $11.9 million for the second quarter of 2016 compared to $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2015. For the first six months of 2016, operating income was $24.6 million compared to $22.2 million in the first six months of 2015.

Operating income for both the second quarter and first six months of 2016 was reduced by a reserve of $1.2 million and legal expenses of approximately $330 thousand related to a pending civil litigation matter. As previously reported, on June 30, 2016, a jury awarded damages against VSE of approximately $4.8 million in a civil lawsuit initiated by a former subcontractor. A final court decision on this matter has not yet been rendered, and the amount of the eventual impact on VSE is not yet certain.

Net income was $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2016, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared to $5.5 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015. Net income was $12.5 million for the first six months of 2016, or $2.32 per diluted share, compared to $10.7 million, or $1.99 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2015.

Bookings in our Federal Services and IT, Energy and Management Consulting groups were $194 million for the first six months of 2016 compared to revenue for these groups of $138 million. Funded contract backlog at June 30, 2016 was $294 million, compared to $229 million at March 31, 2016 and $176 million at June 30, 2015.
