Textron Reports First Quarter 2016 Income from Continuing Operations of $0.55 per Share, up 19.6%; Reaffirms 2016 Financial Outlook

April 20, 2016

PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported first quarter 2016 income from continuing operations of $0.55 per share, up 19.6 percent from $0.46 per share in the first quarter of 2015.

Revenues in the quarter were $3.2 billion, up 4.2 percent from the first quarter of 2015. Textron segment profit in the quarter was $280 million, up $21 million from the first quarter of 2015. First quarter manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions reflected a use of cash of $222 million compared to a use of cash of $125 million during last year’s first quarter.

“Increased revenues reflected growth at Industrial, Aviation and Systems, with relatively flat revenues at Bell, consistent with our expectations,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. “Operationally, we achieved margin improvements at each of our manufacturing segments.”

Outlook

Textron confirmed its 2016 earnings per share from continuing operations guidance of $2.60 to $2.80 and its expectation for cash flow from continuing operations of the manufacturing group before pension contributions of $600 to $700 million with planned pension contributions of about $60 million.

Donnelly continued, “Generally, demand in our end markets has been consistent with what we were expecting. We continue to believe that we will be able to generate solid overall growth in revenue, earnings and cash this year.”

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 and debt agreements, 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 Statements of Cash Flows.
