Arlington, VA, October 28, 2008 - CACI International Inc (NYSE:CAI), a leading professional services and information technology solutions provider to the federal government, announced results today for its first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2008. CACI provides innovative solutions to meet America's needs in national defense, intelligence, homeland security, and the improvement of government services, and is a leading strategic consolidator in its market space.
First Quarter Results
For the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2009 (FY09), we reported revenue of $654.8 million, up 18.3 percent over first quarter of Fiscal Year 2008 (FY08) revenue of $553.6 million. The increase in revenue during the quarter was driven by organic growth of 10.8 percent and acquired revenue. Operating income for the quarter was $41.3 million, up 19.1 percent compared with operating income of $34.7 million in the year earlier quarter. The operating margin was 6.3 percent, equal to the first quarter of FY08. Income before taxes for the quarter was $35.6 million, 20.5 percent higher than what was reported in the first quarter of FY08. Our tax rate increased to 41.0 percent from 38.0 percent in the year earlier quarter. During the first quarter of FY09, our tax rate was negatively impacted by non-deductible losses on assets invested in our deferred compensation plan. Net income for the first quarter was $21.0 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, up 14.8 percent compared with $18.3 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the first quarter of FY08. Operating cash flow in the quarter was $15.6 million compared with $23.4 million in the year earlier quarter. Days sales outstanding at the end of the quarter were 62 compared with 68 days at the end of the first quarter of FY08. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), a non-GAAP measure, were $53.3 million in the quarter, an increase of 17.4 percent over EBITDA of $45.4 million in the first quarter of FY08. The EBITDA margin, a non-GAAP measure, was 8.1 percent compared with 8.2 percent in the year earlier quarter.
First Quarter Highlights
Major highlights and accomplishments during the first quarter of FY09 include:
Commenting on the results, Paul Cofoni, CACI's President and CEO, said, "We are very pleased with our solid first quarter financial performance. We delivered our third consecutive quarter of double-digit growth in operating income, net income and earnings per share along with our fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit organic revenue growth. We continue to have excellent operating cash flow and strong cash collections, helping us to maintain a sound balance sheet and good creditworthiness. Contract funding increased to a record level that is by far the largest amount of quarterly funding orders we have received in our 47 years of business, and which puts our funded backlog at an all-time high. At the same time, contract awards totaled nearly $1 billion. We also continue to hire high-quality professionals at an excellent rate to support our clients' critical missions. Our performance in the quarter validates our strategy of aligning our core competencies and solutions with national security priorities, and reflects the confidence of our government customers in our ability to meet and fulfill their critical needs.
"Our positive operating trends and financial results provide us with a solid foundation for the remainder of FY09 and beyond. We are increasing our capabilities in intelligence, security services, cyber security, and soft power to help our clients meet the long-term challenges of national security. Because of our strong positioning in these key national security areas and our strong fundamentals, our growth prospects are very promising, notwithstanding this period of economic uncertainty and political transition. We remain committed to meeting our long-term financial goals of achieving at least eight to ten percent organic revenue growth and at least 15 percent net income growth."

There are statements made herein which do not address historical facts, and therefore could be interpreted to be forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements are subject to factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated results. The factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated include, but are not limited to, the following: regional and national economic conditions in the United States and the United Kingdom, including conditions that result from terrorist activities or war; changes in interest rates; currency fluctuations; significant fluctuations in the equity markets; failure to achieve contract awards in connection with recompetes for present business and/or competition for new business; the risks and uncertainties associated with client interest in and purchases of new products and/or services; continued funding of U.S. government or other public sector projects, based on a change in spending patterns, or in the event of a priority need for funds, such as homeland security, the war on terrorism or rebuilding Iraq; government contract procurement (such as bid protest, small business set asides, etc.) and termination risks; the results of government investigations into allegations of improper actions related to the provision of services in support of U.S. military operations in Iraq; individual business decisions of our clients; paradigm shifts in technology; competitive factors such as pricing pressures and/or competition to hire and retain employees (particularly those with security clearances); material changes in laws or regulations applicable to our businesses, particularly in connection with (i) government contracts for services, (ii) outsourcing of activities that have been performed by the government, (iii) competition for task orders under Government Wide Acquisition Contracts ("GWACs") and/or schedule contracts with the General Services Administration; and (iv) accounting for convertible debt instruments; our own ability to achieve the objectives of near term or long range business plans; and other risks described in the company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Reconciliation of Total Revenue Growth and Organic Revenue Growth
We are presenting organic revenue growth to reflect the effect of acquisitions on total revenue growth. Revenue generated from the date a business is acquired through the first anniversary of that date is considered acquired revenue growth. All remaining revenue growth is considered organic. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with useful information to evaluate the growth rate of our core business. This non-GAAP measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
Reconciliation of Net Income and Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)
EBITDA, a measure used by management to evaluate operating performance, is defined by us as GAAP net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization, as shown on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. We believe that this non-GAAP measure is a valuable indicator of our operating performance. EBITDA is a commonly used non-GAAP measure when comparing our results with those of other companies, but EBITDA as defined by us may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. The EBITDA margin is EBITDA divided by revenue. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
