Commenting on the company's financial results, Paul Cofoni , CACI's President and CEO, said, "Our solid, fourth quarter growth of net income and record diluted earnings per share and record revenue resulted in the strong second half performance which we promised at the beginning of our FY08. We are very pleased with our double-digit growth of net income and EPS in the second half of FY08. We had another year of strong operating cash flow. Our acquisitions delivered bottom line results that exceeded our expectations and contributed to our earnings per share. They also significantly increased our presence with key customers in the Intelligence Community. We continue to evaluate acquisition opportunities that will be accretive to our bottom line and leverage our capabilities with both existing and new customers. Between acquisitions and organic growth, we added approximately 1,600 people, raising our total employee population to nearly 12,000 highly qualified individuals at fiscal year end. Over 4,200 of these people hold a Top Secret or higher clearance, an increase of 29 percent from a year ago. They significantly increase our capability to support the Intelligence Community and the Defense Department. All these solid performance results contribute to positive momentum for Fiscal Year 2009 and beyond, and give us great confidence in meeting our long-term financial goals of consistently achieving at least eight to ten percent organic revenue growth and growth of net income by at least 15 percent, while continuously pursuing opportunities to improve our profit margin."
Mr. Cofoni continued: "We believe our nation's highest priority is the long-term challenge of asymmetric global terrorism. Our goal is to place CACI at the center of our clients' efforts to meet this challenge, with valuable solutions and cleared, dedicated personnel to help our clients enhance U.S. and global security. Our focus is congruent with the new 2008 National Defense Strategy and the views of both presidential candidates. This convergence of thinking from both defense and political leaders validates our growth strategy.
"I am extremely proud to lead a strong management team and all our CACI employees who are dedicated to being the best in providing quality service to our entire customer base. In Fiscal 2009, we will continue to strengthen our offerings for the Intelligence Community, Defense Department, and federal agencies with high-priority funding and a long-term demand for our services. We will leverage and continually enhance our core competencies in such areas as intelligence and security services, and cyber security. We enter fiscal 2009 with confidence and momentum, making continued progress toward our long-term financial goals, enhancing client capabilities, and building shareholder value."

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.
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.
