Financial Results

Commenting on the financial results, VSE Chairman, President and CEO/COO Don Ervine said, "Revenues increased by approximately 68% and 77% for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2007, as compared to the same periods of 2006. The primary reasons for the increases in revenues were 1) revenues associated with the U.S. Army Equipment Support Program; 2) revenues from the start of the Treasury Seized Property Management Program; and 3) various revenue increases across a number of other programs."

"Net income increased by approximately 75% and 79% for the three month and six month periods ended June 30, 2007, as compared to the same periods of 2006. The increases were primarily due to the increase in revenues on the Army Equipment Support program, increased profitability of systems equipment services performed, revenue and margin increases on equipment refurbishment services, increased ship transfer division award fee income, and the Treasury Seized Property Management Program."

"The financial results from the acquisition of our new subsidiary Integrated Concepts and Research Corporation (ICRC) on June 4, 2007, included in the Consolidated Statements of Income, were not significant for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2007."

"Bookings for the six month period ended June 30, 2007, were about $321 million compared to revenues of about $280 million for the same six month period. Funded backlog as of June 30, 2007, was about $372 million, including about $43 million in backlog from the acquisition of ICRC. This compares favorably to a funded backlog of about $299 million at December 31, 2006, and about $264 million for the year-ago quarter ended June 30, 2006. 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."
