“We are successfully integrating our Aviation Group acquired on January 28, 2015, and continue to execute our strategy to expand our markets for sustainment services outside our traditional federal customer base,” said Maurice “Mo” Gauthier, VSE CEO. “Our Aviation Group has made a meaningful contribution to our operating performance and the addition of this group is having the desired effect of diversifying and strengthening the quality of our revenues. Our Federal Services Group received several contract awards during this quarter supporting the U.S. Army. Our Supply Chain Management Group continues to be the strongest contributor to our operating results.”
For the second quarter of 2015, revenues were $131 million compared to $108 million in the second quarter of 2014. For the first six months, revenues were $252 million in 2015 compared to $227 million in 2014. The inclusion of our Aviation Group and revenue increases from our Supply Chain Management Group offset revenue declines from our Federal Services Group.
Operating income was $11.5 million for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $10.7 million for the second quarter of 2014. For the first six months, operating income was $22.2 million in 2015 compared to $22.1 million in 2014. Operating income increases resulted from growth in our Supply Chain Management Group and the addition of our Aviation Group, and were offset mainly by operating losses in our Federal Services Group.
Net income was $5.5 million for the second quarter of 2015, or $1.02 per diluted share, compared to $5.7 million, or $1.06 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2014. Net income was $10.7 million for the first six months of 2015, or $1.99 per diluted share, compared to $11.3 million, or $2.11 per diluted share for the first six months of 2014.
We believe that funded backlog and bookings are not useful indicators of future revenues for our Supply Chain Management and Aviation Groups. Therefore, we have revised our disclosure relative to bookings and funded contract backlog to consist only of our Federal Services and IT, Energy and Management Consulting Groups. Bookings for these groups were $87 million for the six months of 2015 as compared to revenue of $103 million. Funded contract backlog at June 30, 2015 was $176 million, compared to $185 million at March 31, 2015 and $177 million at June 30, 2014.
