Prepared Remarks:

Operator

Ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon, and welcome to the ManTech's First Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions]

I would now like to turn the call over to Stephen Vather, Vice President, Corporate Development and Investor Relations. Sir, please go ahead.

Stephen Vather -- Vice President, Corporate Development and Investor Relations

Thank you. Welcome, everyone. Thanks for participating on ManTech's first quarter call. Joining me today is Kevin Phillips, our Chairman, CEO and President; Judy Bjornaas, our CFO; and Matt Tait, our COO.

During this call, we will make statements that do not address historical facts and thus are forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are subject to factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated results. For a full discussion of these factors and other risks and uncertainties, please refer to the section entitled Risk Factors in our latest Form 10-K and our other SEC filings. We undertake no obligation to update any of the forward-looking statements made on this call. On today's call, we will discuss some non-GAAP financial measures, which we believe provide useful information for investors. These non-GAAP measures should not be evaluated in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP performance measures. You can find a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures discussed on this call in our first quarter earnings release.

With that, let me hand the call over to Kevin.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Good afternoon, everyone, and thanks for joining the call. ManTech continues to perform well overall. Our first quarter results demonstrated steady execution and strong profitability, which was evident by our EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share as well as our margins. While our industry and company have fared better than others on a relative basis over the past year, the pandemic and its duration has created a somewhat choppy operating environment. As a result, quarterly revenue growth was tempered by lighter ODCs and customer procurements shifting to the right.

While procurement delays persist in pockets, we made good progress in submitting proposals in Q1 and the volume of our proposals outstanding group. The uneven market environment is likely to linger for a few more quarters. However, the long-term fundamentals and positioning of the business remains sound. Our view is reinforced by a few secular trends, namely the fact that national security threats are not abating and that there is a persistent need for technology modernization for both IT and physical platforms with an increasing convergence of the two. That said, the associated market opportunities are still bound by budget realities. The administration recently provided their FY '22 budget request, which calls for $753 billion for defense and $769 billion for nondefense, which represents proposed increases of approximately 2% and 16% over enacted levels, respectively.

We look forward to seeing the details of the request later in May to confirm our understanding of the administration's priorities. It is our hope that the budget details are released in the near term to provide our customers with sufficient clarity into their funding levels against their critical-mission requirements. Our country's national security strategy continues to place an increasing priority on deterring near-peer threats, which is a substantial shift away from the two decade strategy centered on the global war on terror. This strategy is materializing on a number of fronts, including a decision to depart from Afghanistan by September 11 of this year.

As a reminder, ManTech's exposure in-country today is relatively small, representing low single digits of annual revenue, much different from where the business was ten years ago. We view the drawdown of our military presence in Afghanistan as a potential opportunity for the DOD to repurpose funds toward technology that will advance modernization and bring new capabilities to meet near-peer national security threats. Many of you have been on this journey through us and with us to evolve the business toward delivering differentiated solutions as well as pursuing customers that prioritize innovation. This focus on positioning and execution remains a top priority as we begin to operate in a potentially more rigid budget environment. I'll round out my market commentary by noting that cyber remains an enduring national priority.

The administration is recruiting well-experienced thought leaders to key cyber positions and recently named its National Cyber Director and a leader for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, adding breadth and depth to our broader national security team. ManTech's solid reputation and distinguished full-spectrum cyber capabilities position us well for continued growth in this time. Shifting gears to talent. Competitive pressures in the labor market have not related, and attracting highly cleared professionals is an enduring challenge. We are pleased with the steady support from Congress in recognizing the scarcity and criticality of preserving talent supporting critical national security missions and applaud its most recent extension of the CARES Act Section 3610 coverage through September 30.

Our reliance on this provision has been steadily declining as customers move toward normalized operations. But it remains a critical tool relied upon by many in the industry in retaining highly skilled and highly cleared talent. As national vaccination progress rolled out, we are planning for a welcome return for more normalized operations. Consistent with our operating philosophy since the start of the pandemic, the health and safety of our employees, customers and partners is our utmost priority. We recognize that we will all be operating in a new normal and are tailoring our approach in a manner that supports ManTech's goal of being the employer of choice in our industry.

Sticking with talent, I am pleased to announce that we reinforced our leadership ranks with the promotion of Julie Anna Barker to the role of ManTech's Chief Human Resources Officer; and the appointment of Joe Cubba as our Chief Growth Officer. Julie Anna has served as interim CHRO since last December, seamlessly advancing ManTech's initiatives and attracting, developing and retaining talent. Joe joined us in March, assuming the charter of our sales and growth activities and is working in tandem with our operations team and technologists to drive ManTech's differentiated solutions across the federal market. I look forward to working closely with them both as they bring their passion, experience and hands-on leadership to empower our employees and customers alike.

Now Judy will walk through the details of our Q1 financial performance. Judy?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Thanks, Kevin. We are steadily executing with a keen focus on generating long-term value for our stakeholders. Revenue for the quarter reached $633 million, up 4% compared to Q1 of 2020. As Kevin mentioned earlier, lighter ODCs and new business procurement delays drove growth below our expectations for the quarter. That said, direct labor remains strong and cascaded throughout the P&L, with its impact most conspicuous in our profit metrics. Our contract mix shifted slightly year-over-year. In Q1, prime contracts comprised 93% of revenue and the breakout of our contract pricing structure was approximately 66% cost-plus; 21% fixed price; and 13% time and materials. The lighter ODCs shifted our cost-plus mix lower in the quarter. EBITDA for the quarter was $62 million, which grew 12% from Q1 of 2020.

This resulted in an EBITDA margin of 9.7%, reflecting margin improvement of 70 basis points year-over-year. The increased margins were primarily driven by two factors: a higher-than-usual labor mix caused by the slippage of ODCs and the consistent strength of our indirect cost management. Our expectation is that those ODCs will eventually be procured and increased indirect spending will return profitability to more normalized levels. The tax rate was 23% in the quarter, just slightly lower than expected with the majority of the bottom line strength coming from operational execution. Net income was $32 million and diluted EPS was $0.79 for Q1, up 13% and 11% from Q1 2020, respectively.

Adjusted net income was $36 million and adjusted diluted EPS was $0.88, up 11% and 9%, respectively, from last year. Now on to the balance sheet and cash flow statements. For the quarter, cash used in operations was $8 million. This is exclusively attributable to an expected uptick in net working capital. DSO was 61 days at the end of the quarter, a five-day increase from the fourth quarter of 2020. At quarter end, the balance sheet showed $7 million in cash and $22 million of debt. Additionally, we distributed $15 million in dividends in Q1. The Board has authorized us to maintain our current cash quarterly dividend of $0.38 per share, which will be paid in June. Our strong balance sheet and cash flow position provides us with ample financial flexibility to invest for future organic growth, value-enhancing M&A and continuing to return cash to shareholders. We are actively reviewing potential M&A opportunities, and we'll execute on those that align to our strategic and financial goals.

Now on to guidance. We are reiterating our previously communicated guidance on all measures. The factors that we see as having the most significant impact on our ability to perform within the ranges provided include the rate at which we are able to successfully win new business and retain our recompetes as well as the timing of each, particularly the new business, the pace of hiring and ramping new and recent contract awards, the level and timing of material procurements, direct labor utilization trends and the cadence of normalization as the impact of the pandemic subsides. Just to refresh you on the expectations we set in February and are reaffirming here today, we expect revenue of $2.65 billion to $2.75 billion, which represents year-over-year growth of 5% to 9%.

At the midpoint of guidance, a little more than 80% of the revenue is expected to come from existing backlog with still a fair bit of the plan from recompetes and new business. For margins, our guidance continues to assume an EBITDA margin of 9.1% to 9.2% for the year, maintaining the profitability for incremental margin improvement of up to 10 basis points year-over-year. Turning to our bottom line. We expect an adjusted net income range of $142.5 million to $147.4 million and an adjusted diluted EPS range of $3.48 to $3.60. These ranges still assume an effective tax rate of 24% and a fully diluted share count of approximately 41 million shares. Lastly, despite our cash flow use this quarter, we still expect cash flow from operations of at least $200 million and expect capex to be around 2.5% of revenue for the year.

Now I'll turn it over to Matt to cover the business development and operational highlights for the quarter.

Matt Tait -- Chief Operating Officer

Thank you, Judy. Let me walk through the business development and operational highlights from the quarter. We won $561 million of contract awards, resulting in a 0.1 -- 0.9 book-to-bill in Q1. Our differentiated capabilities in cyber, mission and enterprise IT and intelligent systems engineering are apparent in these awards. We won a new $123 million Cybersecurity-as-a-Service contract with a long-standing customer, the FBI. We continue to leverage our strong customer [Indecipherable], solid past performance and innovative capabilities into new wins with the Navy and won a new $110 million platform modernization effort focused on radar and EW systems and subsystems. Lastly, we secured a $61 million recompete supporting the DOD's Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate with technical and analytical services. As a result of these bookings, our backlog exiting the quarter stood at $10.1 billion, which represents 8% growth year-over-year. Approximately $1.4 billion of our backlog is funded.

As Kevin mentioned earlier, we are steadily submitting proposals, and our proposals awaiting adjudications stands at $8 billion. We have routinely spoken to the investments we are making in the business to sharpen our differentiation. Adding to our differentiators, I am pleased that we have recently announced a strategic partnership with Google Cloud to jointly pursue cloud and analytics opportunities across the federal market. We look forward to leveraging the success we have enjoyed to date into new customers and use cases. This adds to our growing list of partnerships with leading commercial technology providers and, quite frankly, further demonstrates ManTech's position as a trusted partner in federal digital transformation and IT modernization efforts.

These partnerships are receiving the validation of both our customers and partners. A few months ago, we were awarded the Best DOD Solution by Red Hat for leveraging their hybrid cloud and open source technology solutions. We were selected for this honor based on our innovative use of the Red Hat OpenShift container platform in support of the U.S. Army's persistent cyber training environment. We are excited with the progress we have made and look forward to continue helping our customers leverage best-of-breed commercial technologies in support of their missions.

With that, let me hand the call back over to Kevin for closing remarks.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Thanks, Matt. In closing, let me emphasize that we remain focused on executing and innovating for our customers; attracting, developing and retaining talent; and leveraging the balance sheet to deliver strong long-term shareholder value. I want to reiterate my thanks to the team for their unwavering commitment to our customers and their critical missions.

With that, we are ready to take your questions.

Questions and Answers:

Operator

[Operator Instructions] Our first question comes from the line of Gautam Khanna from Cowen. Sir, please go ahead.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Gautam, are you on?

Matt Tait -- Chief Operating Officer

Gautam

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

Sorry about that. I was on mute there.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

I know it's a very important. I love it.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

That was the easiest one of the day. Hey, I was going to ask on the ODC dynamic, what was the shortfall there relative to your going-in expectation? And do you expect 100% of whatever that shortfall is to be made up later this year? And if so, kind of when? Is it Q3? Is it Q4?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. That's the problem with these materials, they're so lumpy with when they come in and I think some of it was probably supply chain. I don't know if you've tried to order a refrigerator lately, but you just can't get things. But the customers are -- the demand is still there. The timing, we fully expect it to come through at some point this year, whether that's next quarter, more likely second half, but we do expect it to be made up.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

And did you give a figure for it? I may have missed it, Judy, if you said how much specifically was -- yes.

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

No, we did not. No.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

Okay. But you would have expected a sequential increase in sales. Maybe could you speak to what the sequential decline in ODCs was quarter-to-quarter?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. I mean direct labor was definitely greater than the total top line growth. The ODCs were down, I think, mid-single digits.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

Okay. No, that's helpful and then just on the bookings environment, $8 billion of outstanding bids as of the quarter end. How do those phase in terms of when they're expected to be adjudicated over? Is it like a big Q2 and a big Q3? Or any sort of color you can give us on kind of when those are expected, the bulk of those to be adjudicated?

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Gautam, this is Kevin. I think when we talk about the choppiness, it's uncertain as to when they will be adjudicated because there's so much volume out there. I would note in terms of color is that it's -- over half is new business, but we do have an increasing proportion of that total under the half that is recompete. So some of the things that have been kind of pushing to the right we see more likely to be recompeted in our business in the second half of this year and going into early next year. But we still have a very healthy pipeline of new work in that. And adjudications, as we noted, are very much contingent on the workforce in the government, their prioritization, how quickly they can get to things, what they prioritize. And if not, they generally delay. And how that plays out quarter-to-quarter is very hard for us to predict.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

Thank you

Operator

And sir we do have our next question from Robert Spingarn from Credit Suisse. Sir, your line is open.

Robert Spingarn -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Thank you. Hi, good afternoon. Judy, what was the organic sales growth in the quarter? And then what is embedded in the guide, I guess, at the midpoint?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. It's a little over 1% in the quarter, and then the midpoint of the guide is about 5%.

Robert Spingarn -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Okay and then, Kevin, on that, just does the reversal in ODCs get you to that 5%? And can you get there with the kind of hiring and award pace you had in Q1? Or does that also have to improve?

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

The award pace has to improve for our entire industry and for ManTech in order to get to that growth level. I think that the hiring is not a constraint. The ODCs, we expect to be caught up in the end.

Robert Spingarn -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Okay. Thanks so much. I'll jump back in.

Operator

And sir your next question from Tobey Sommer from Truist Securities. Your line is open.

Jasper Bibb -- Truist Securities -- Analyst

Hey, good morning. This is Jasper Bibb on for Tobey. I guess following up on first quarter margins and the ODC impact, could you give any color on the cadence of how you, I guess, expect margins to track over the balance of the year as that rolls off?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. I mean, we're expecting the 9.1%, 9.2% for the full year. So clearly, it's going to trend down over the course of the year based on -- as ODCs pick up as well as indirect spending picks up. So I think it will drop in Q2 and then kind of normalize.

Jasper Bibb -- Truist Securities -- Analyst

And then I wanted to ask about how the company is thinking about total addressable market growth in the current environment. I guess while you've grown above defense top line for some time, does that trajectory change at all with what we're seeing in the President's request for '22?

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

This is Kevin. I'll speak to that and then if Matt wants to add any flavor behind that or color behind that. So we all are very focused, and I think we've done a good job as a company to position where we think within the overall federal budgets the higher proportion of needs will be, specifically around certain technologies and technology growth and you can see within the current administration that they continue to focus on the need for a technology-driven economic competition as well as military competition. How that plays out within the details of the DOD budget or the federal budget for FY '22 when it comes out, I think we have to all wait and see where that lands as well as for '23 POM and so those are very important to our sector to track. That said, I think that we've done a good job of positioning where we think the budgets will be above average within whatever budget levels they will be.

Jasper Bibb -- Truist Securities -- Analyst

Last question for me. Could you just update us on how the recompete schedule has been progressing so far this year? And the 20% or so initially up for recompete this year, how much do you have left?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. As I said in the comments, we've got a little over 80% in backlog at the midpoint and the balance is probably split equally between recompetes and new, just given the timing of the recompete wins and we have seen a few decisions came in, and then a lot of the continued proposals outstanding are recompetes and we're waiting for those to be awarded, but it's definitely second half loaded and then into 2022.

Jasper Bibb -- Truist Securities -- Analyst

Thanks for taking the question and I'll get back in the queue.

Operator

And our next question from Louis DiPalma from William Blair. Sir your line is open.

Louis DiPalma -- William Blair -- Analyst

Great. Kevin, Judith and Stephen, good afternoon. You mentioned procurement delays, Kevin and Judy. Has there also been delays to your ramp of some of your recent large contract wins?

Matt Tait -- Chief Operating Officer

So I would say on the ODCs is relative to that ramp-up. But I think all other programs, I think, are going along just fine and like Judy mentioned, right, our DL growth is above the top line growth that you mentioned. So I think that we're -- overall, I think those are progressing nicely.

Louis DiPalma -- William Blair -- Analyst

Great and as it relates to some of the procurement delays that you referenced, would you cite the administration change and COVID as the two biggest drivers behind those procurement delays? Or is there something else that's taking place?

Matt Tait -- Chief Operating Officer

Yes. So I think those are both valid in terms of what we're seeing at large. COVID, a large portion of our workforce, right, is doing shift work in certain mission areas and then there is -- obviously, there's always a little bit of change that happens. So priorities get more reinforced or less. So I think those are things that we're all working through and that everyone is working through, but I think those are two of the bigger things we are seeing at a macro level.

Louis DiPalma -- William Blair -- Analyst

Okay and as it, I guess, relates to both of those variables from December through April, has there been any easing of these headwinds that you've witnessed? And do you expect there to be improvement in the second half of the year?

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

No and yes. So there hasn't been improvement in the first quarter, but we do expect improvement because people are getting back in the government to help adjudicate and to move to normal operations and that will help with the pace of, hopefully, all things, getting talent as well as adjudicated decisions and procurement decisions within funded amounts.

Louis DiPalma -- William Blair -- Analyst

Awesome. Thanks Kevin, Judith, Stephen.

Operator

And our next question is from Mariana Perez Mora of Bank of America. Ma'am your line is open.

Matt Tait -- Chief Operating Officer

Hello

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Hello

Mariana Perez Mora -- Bank of America -- Analyst

So first question, also related to this choppiness on the task ordering. How -- I know it's hard to predict the future, but how should we read current funded backlog and how that should translate into organic growth in like midterm -- short to midterm?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. We did see an uptick in our funded backlog in Q1, which I think is just kind of the normal timing of them putting funding on it. I don't think there's -- we've seen anything unusual or different in the timing of receiving funding. So I don't think it really has changed anything from our expectations.

Mariana Perez Mora -- Bank of America -- Analyst

Okay and then related to capital deployment, with an increasing market appetite for shareholder, like share buybacks, how those buybacks play a role in your capital deployment strategy and priorities?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. I mean we always look at all of our options. We increased the dividend almost 20% this year and as you know, from our numerous conversations, M&A continues to be our preferred capital deployment method and we're seeing a lot of activity in the M&A market and as Kevin mentioned, we're going to continue to focus on those. So we look at buybacks. But for now, it just hasn't seemed like something that we think makes the most sense for our shareholders and I don't know if our esteemed Chairman wants us to add anything from the Board perspective, but we definitely -- we look at that.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Yes, we do review it. Look, I think it's a very active M&A market and it's one of those markets whether we are successful or not, I think that we're a little bit more aggressive around that because of the properties that are out there and see our positioning around that is our first priority still.

Mariana Perez Mora -- Bank of America -- Analyst

Perfect and what are you looking for in the M&A market?

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Well, we have -- there are a lot of good businesses out in the market right now. We know it's very competitive, but we're looking for technology advancement, both for a combination of technology and engineering and certain technologies around the technical focus areas that we've mentioned before in the customer areas where we see growth in the federal budget. We're tracking heavily what the administration's details are on their FY '22 components. That's a very important activity, but it's a very active market right now from an M&A perspective for all of us in our industry.

Mariana Perez Mora -- Bank of America -- Analyst

Thank you. I have one more of a jump back in the queue. All right.

Operator

[Operator Instructions] And speakers, we have a follow-up question from Robert Spingarn of Credit Suisse. Sir your line is open.

Robert Spingarn -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Thanks. I wanted to follow up on M&A. There's a couple of questions around M&A, Kevin. One is, do the proposed tax changes accelerate the number of properties that are coming on to the market? So is there more in the pipeline recently? So that's the first question.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

The answer is, I believe, that's a driver, yes. It has certainly through last year -- this year has been inferred as something that has people thinking about options.

Robert Spingarn -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Okay and then related to that, when you think about valuations, how have those trended relative to a year ago as we get through the pandemic or maybe the proposed budget possibly affects that? And then in addition to that, are you looking at companies in the -- in nondefense, more in the civilian markets or even in the hardware areas like some of your peers have, so maybe defense but defense hardware?

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Yes. So for quality businesses, the market is fairly hot in terms of demand. So I think the multiples are at or above where they've been. They're not declining in any way and that's great in terms of the view of where the federal budgets are headed in those areas. That's why they are such high demand and high value. In terms of positioning, yes, we are looking to expand in federal civilian selectively, nondefense. We still focus on defense and intelligence, cyber as core business areas. But at the same time, we do see a lot of opportunity but from a budget placement as well as capability placement into the federal civilian market.

Robert Spingarn -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Okay and then, Judy, just one more question. Just on the five day increase in the DSOs, and I think you said you anticipated working capital headwind here. Will that reverse? Or does it reflect some kind of change in progress payments?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

No, we actually don't have any progress payments. It's just a timing issue. It is an actual -- it's an improvement over where we were in Q1 of last year and we do expect that we should get another day or two improvement over the course of the year.

Robert Spingarn -- Credit Suisse -- Analyst

Thank you both

Operator

And your next question from Brian Kinstlinger of Alliance Global Partners. Sir your line is open.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

Brian we cannot hear you

Jacob Silverman -- Alliance Global Partners -- Analyst

Sorry, can you hear me now?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes.

Jacob Silverman -- Alliance Global Partners -- Analyst

This is Jacob on for Brian. Can you quantify any onetime benefits on SG&A during the first quarter? And then with growth in defense spending expected to slow, does management plan to increase the amount of proposal activity that will lead to slightly lower operating margins in the near term?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

I'll answer the first question and then have you repeat the second part. We had a couple of small onetime items, nothing major. It was more just timing of indirect spending still in kind of the pandemic, your indirect fab was low. There's no trade shows and things like that. So not really any specific onetime items.

Kevin M. Phillips -- Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President

And it's Kevin, I'll answer your second piece. So we're not anticipating the business profile of what we're going after to change our approach to the overall price or overall fee we're trying to achieve when we compete. If the market changes on that, we'll all be addressing it. It's certainly competitive. But we don't expect to be lowering our overall margin profile in order to compete and win business.

Jacob Silverman -- Alliance Global Partners -- Analyst

All right. Thanks so much.

Operator

And speakers, we have a follow-up question from Mariana Perez Mora of Bank of America. Ma'am your line is open.

Mariana Perez Mora -- Bank of America -- Analyst

Thank you very much. So my follow-up is on free cash flow. Any color on free cash flow burn this quarter? And how should we think about it for the rest of the year and especially about working capital conversion and also capital deployment -- sorry, capex?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

Yes. I mean I think over the -- for the balance of the -- or for the full year, we expect cash flow to be roughly equivalent to net income. We expect it to pick up next quarter and then the balance of the year, just as we modified the working capital and the capex drops over the course of the balance of the year.

Mariana Perez Mora -- Bank of America -- Analyst

Okay. Thank you very much.

Operator

And speakers, we still have one follow-up question from Gautam Khanna of Cowen. Sir, your line is open. Please ask your question.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

Yeah, thank you. Just wanted to ask on recompetes. If you could remind us again what percentage of sales this year is up for rebid? When most of those are expected to occur? And did you have any meaningful recompete losses in the first quarter?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

So as I said a little bit earlier, of the 20% -- approximately 20% of the midpoint of guidance that's coming from newer recompete, it's about 50-50, so 10%-ish or so of the 2021 revenue from recompetes. It's obviously a slightly higher number of actual annualized revenue because it is definitely back-end loaded and going into 2022, it's still that probably normalized 25% or so of recompetes.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

Okay and in Q1, was there anything of consequence that was lost?

Judith L. Bjornaas -- Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer

No.

Stephen Vather -- Vice President, Corporate Development and Investor Relations

It looks like we have no further questions. So thank you all for your participation on today's call and your interest in ManTech. As usual, members of our senior team will be available for any follow-up questions. Have a good evening, and please stay safe.

Gautam Khanna -- Cowen -- Analyst

Okay, thank you very much.
