Financial Results

Commenting on the financial results, VSE Chairman, President and CEO/COO Don Ervine said, "During the first quarter of 2007 compared to the same quarter of 2006, VSE revenues increased primarily due to an increase in subcontract revenues under VSE's Rapid Response (R2) contract to provide maintenance and logistics services supporting U.S. Army operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, our new Treasury Seized Property Management prime contract, increased production under our Tanker Ballistic Protection System (TBPS) contract, and an increase in the volume of equipment refurbishment work performed for elements of the U.S. Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard."

"Net income for the first quarter of 2007 increased compared to the first quarter of 2006 primarily due to the profits associated with the TBPS program, the increase in R2 subcontract revenues, the new Treasury Seized Property Management work, and the increase in Army Reserve equipment refurbishment services."

"Bookings for the most recent quarter were strong at about $205 million compared to quarterly revenues of about $121 million, resulting in funded backlog of about $384 million at March 31, 2007. This compares favorably to a funded backlog of about $299 million at December 31, 2006, and about $262 million for the year-ago quarter. We believe these indicators are positive for our continued growth for the remainder of 2007. We look forward to reporting on our progress as the year proceeds."
