Textron Reports Second Quarter EPS of $0.58 on 10.7% Revenue Increase

July 19, 2012

PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 19, 2012-- Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported second quarter 2012 income from continuing operations of $0.58 per share, compared to income of $0.29 per share in the second quarter of 2011. Total revenues in the quarter were $3.0 billion, up 10.7% from the second quarter of 2011.

Manufacturing segment profit was $288 million, up $59 million from the second quarter of 2011. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions was $121 million during the second quarter compared to $171 million during last year’s second quarter. The company contributed $21 million to its pension plans during the second quarter.

“The payoff from investing in new products and services is reflected in our double digit revenue growth during the quarter and our focus on operational execution is driving solid results,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly.

Donnelly continued, “We are also very pleased with recent significant program wins, including the Canadian Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle, the U.S. Navy’s Ship-to–Shore Connector, upgrades to the U.S. Army’s Shadow TUAS, and an agreement with NetJets to provide up to 150 Citation Latitudes for their fleet, all of which help contribute to the positive outlook we have for our businesses.”

Outlook

Textron confirmed its 2012 earnings per share from continuing operations guidance of $1.80 to $2.00 and cash flow from continuing operations of the manufacturing group before pension contributions between $700 and $750 million, with planned pension contributions of about $200 million.

Second Quarter Segment Results

Cessna

Revenues at Cessna increased $111 million, reflecting the delivery of 49 new Citation jets in the quarter, compared with 38 in last year’s second quarter.

Segment profit of $35 million was an improvement of $30 million, primarily due to the higher volume.

Cessna backlog at the end of the second quarter was $1.5 billion, down $196 million from the first quarter of 2012.

Bell

Bell revenues increased $184 million in the second quarter from the same period in the prior year, primarily reflecting the delivery of 47 commercial helicopters compared to 22 units in last year’s second quarter. Bell also delivered 9 V-22 and 6 H-1 aircraft in the quarter compared to 9 V-22’s and 8 H-1’s in last year’s second quarter.

Segment profit increased $32 million, primarily reflecting higher volume and favorable mix in our commercial business.

Bell backlog at the end of the second quarter was $6.7 billion, down $394 million from the first quarter of 2012.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems decreased $63 million primarily due to lower sensor fuzed weapon and armored security vehicle volumes. Segment profit decreased $9 million, reflecting the lower volumes and deliveries on lower-margin contracts.

Textron Systems’ backlog at the end of the second quarter was $2.7 billion, up $1.2 billion from the first quarter of 2012.

Industrial

Industrial revenues increased $37 million reflecting higher volumes across most of the businesses partially offset by unfavorable foreign exchange. Segment profit increased $6 million primarily due to the higher volume.

Finance

Finance segment revenues increased $22 million compared to the second quarter of 2011. The segment reported a profit of $22 million compared to a $33 million loss in last year’s second quarter.

Free cash flow is a measure generally used by investors, analysts and management to gauge a company’s ability to generate cash from operations in excess of that necessary to be reinvested to sustain and grow the business and fund its obligations. Our definition of Manufacturing free cash flow adjusts net cash from operating activities of continuing operations for dividends received from TFC, capital contributions provided under the Support Agreement, capital expenditures, proceeds from the sale of property, plant and equipment and contributions to our pension plans. We believe that our calculation provides a relevant measure of liquidity and is a useful basis for assessing our ability to fund operations and obligations. This measure is not a financial measure under GAAP and should be used in conjunction with GAAP cash measures provided in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.
