SI International Reports Financial Results

for Third Quarter FY08


RESTON, VA – November 5, 2008 - SI International, Inc. (Nasdaq: SINT), an information technology and network solutions (IT) company, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 27, 2008.  SI International’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 has been filed with the SEC and can be viewed by going to the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or SI International’s website, www.si-intl.com, and selecting “SEC Filings” on the “Investors” webpage.


Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 (FY08) was $149.0 million.  Income from operations for the third quarter of FY08 was $6.8 million.  Net income for the third quarter of FY08 was $3.1 million or $0.23 per diluted share.  In the third quarter, SI International recorded $1.5 million of pre-tax expenses for third-party services related to the pending merger with Serco, Inc.  The impact of these expenses resulted in $0.08 reduction of fully diluted earnings per share for the current quarter.   Adjusting for the expenses associated with the pending merger, SI International’s adjusted net income is $4.0 million, or $0.31 per diluted share.  (Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures; please refer to the discussion below entitled, “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”)


As adjusted for these expenses, the Company’s results are in line with financial guidance provided on July 29, 2008, in which SI International stated that it expected revenues for the third quarter be in the range of $147-153 million, with net income in the range of $3.9-4.3 million, or $0.30-0.33 per fully diluted share.


Non-GAAP Financial Measures


Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure, which we define as net income plus after-tax transaction costs associated with the pending merger with Serco Inc.  Adjusted earnings per share is a non-GAAP financial measure, which we define as earnings per share, plus the per-share after-tax transaction costs relating to the pending merger.  Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are not intended to replace net income or earnings per share.  Rather, we consider adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share to be important financial measures of our operating performance for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 related to the operation of our business without taking into account expenditures that are related to the pending merger and which are not expected to recur. We believe adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share provides investors with an alternative means to evaluate the results of our operations.  Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share as used in this document may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in accounting policies and differences in definitions of adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share.  The following table reconciles reported net income and earnings
