(SOA) and Data Interoperability Markets



Acquisition Strengthens ManTech's Position as a Leader in High-end

Mission Critical Information Sharing and Data Interoperability Programs



    HERNDON, Va., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonald Bradley, Inc., a
 rapidly-growing secure information sharing and IT solutions provider to the
 government marketplace, today announced that the Company has signed a
 definitive agreement to be acquired by ManTech International Corporation
 (NASDAQ:   MANT) for $76.5 million in cash.
 
     Of particular interest to ManTech is the Company's strong presence in
 the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community and Homeland Security
 markets. McDonald Bradley generates more than sixty percent of its revenue
 from these federal agencies and counts the Defense Intelligence Agency
 (DIA) as its largest customer. The Company is a prime contractor on the
 Department of Homeland Security's EAGLE contract and expects to deliver
 over $50 million in revenue in 2007, with strong operating margins and
 solid growth prospects into 2008 and beyond.
 
     In addition, the Company's technology expertise involving SOA
 enterprise governance and implementations currently at work in various
 civilian agencies represents a key area of IT focus for ManTech.
 
     All McDonald Bradley staff and management will be retained.
 
     "We are extremely excited to become part of ManTech as our corporate
 cultures, business focus and customer bases have much in common," said Ken
 Bartee, President and CEO. "After considering various strategic
 alternatives, we felt that the timing, the opportunity and ManTech's track
 record of strong operating performance opens a new horizon for the Company,
 our employees and customers. ManTech's large public company status will
 offer expanded professional development opportunities while its deep
 resources will make it easier to expand our role with customers as together
 we will drive the leading-edge technology solutions that support their
 mission well into the future."
 
     "McDonald Bradley is in line with our M&A strategy and deepens our
 capabilities in the high-end defense, intelligence and homeland security
 markets and expands our presence into new markets," said George J.
 Pedersen, Chairman and CEO, ManTech International Corporation. "McDonald
 Bradley is a great company that will help us provide expanded technology
 solutions to our national security customer base."
 
     Robert A. Coleman, President and COO, ManTech International Corporation
 said, "The McDonald Bradley acquisition strengthens our position as a
 leading provider of secure Information Sharing and Data Interoperability
 solutions in the national security marketplace. We expect to see immediate
 benefit of our combined capabilities in the Intelligence Community and
 particularly the DIA where we have worked as a team supporting some of
 their most important mission critical programs."
 
     The acquisition is subject to various closing conditions and approvals,
 including approval under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act, and is expected to be
 completed by the end of 2007.
 
     BB&T/Windsor Group is serving as financial advisors to McDonald Bradley
 in this transaction.
