ICF (Nasdaq: ICFI) recorded $1.34B in total revenue for the full year of 2018, reflecting a 9 percent increase from the previous year.

The Fairfax, Va.-based company said Wednesday 2018 contract awards grew 40 percent to $1.82B with a book-to-bill ratio of 1.4, while its total backlog for the year reached $2.4B, including $1.1B in funded backlog.

The consulting and digital services provider posted $61.4M in 2018 net income and $3.18 in diluted earnings per share.

ICF saw its fourth-quarter revenue rise 18 percent to $378M and logged $286M in Q4 contract awards.

“Revenue growth in the fourth quarter was broad-based, across each of our client categories. Revenue from government clients increased 22 percent, driven by our disaster recovery work for state and local government clients,” said Sudhakar Kesavan, chairman and CEO of ICF.

“At the same time, our year-end business development pipeline increased to over $5.8B, representing a year-over-year increase of 38 percent,” added Kesavan, a 2019 Wash100 winner.

John Wasson, president and chief operating officer of ICF, said during the earnings call Tuesday that the company is seeing growth opportunities in the cybersecurity market both in civilian and defense sectors as the government increases its spending on cyber-related work.

Wasson also mentioned the cyber contracts the company won from the U.S. Air Force and Army Research Laboratory in the past year.
