Charles Prow

Thank you, Mike, and good afternoon, everyone. Thank you for joining us on the call today. This quarter, we, in every business around the globe, have been adjusting to the COVID-19 pandemic and keeping our employees, clients and partners safe. Vectrus provides critical infrastructure support services globally for a variety of national security missions. This core competency, combined with our backlog of long-term contracts with the U.S. government, creates operating and financial resiliency with predictable free cash flow. This is foundational to our business model.

We are proud of the contributions our teams are making to support our men and women on the front line at such a difficult time. At the same time, we are not distracted from our opportunity to transform Vectrus into a leader in the emerging converged infrastructure market and as such, our strategic priorities remain unchanged and achievable.

Please turn to Slide 3, and let's touch on our first quarter results. We began the year as expected, with continued top line growth. Revenue grew 8% in Q1, which is supported by a solid organic growth of 4% and a minimal impact from COVID-19. This growth came from a $14.6 million expansion on our existing programs as well as an $11.2 million contribution from our acquisition of Advantor.

Our client portfolio and revenue base continues to diversify as we expand our market share with the Army, the Navy and the Air Force. We also improved our profitability in the quarter through continued focus on program delivery excellence.
