Textron Reports Second Quarter 2016 Income from Continuing Operations of $0.66 per Share, up 10%

July 22, 2016

PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported second quarter 2016 income from continuing operations of $0.66 per share, up 10.0 percent from $0.60 per share in the second quarter of 2015.

Revenues in the quarter were $3.5 billion, up 8.1 percent from the second quarter of 2015. Textron segment profit in the quarter was $328 million, up $22 million from the second quarter of 2015.

“Revenues were up at Systems, Industrial and Textron Aviation despite a challenging global environment, reflecting our continued investment in new products and acquisitions,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly.

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations of the manufacturing group for the second quarter was $107 million, compared to $183 million in last year’s second quarter. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions, a non-GAAP measure which is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, reflected a use of cash of $26 million compared to a positive $106 million cash flow during last year’s second quarter.

Tax Settlement

On July 11, 2016, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Office of Appeals approved a final settlement for our 1998 to 2008 tax years. As a result, in the third quarter we expect to record an income tax benefit, including reversal of accrued interest, of approximately $315 million, of which approximately $200 million, or $0.74 per share, is attributable to continuing operations.

Outlook

Textron reiterated its 2016 earnings per share from continuing operations guidance of $2.60 to $2.80, not including the estimated impact related to the tax settlement discussed above. The company also confirmed its 2016 manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions guidance of $600 - $700 million.

Donnelly continued, “We are confirming our full-year operating outlook, as we continue to believe that our new products and acquisitions will contribute to solid overall growth in revenue, earnings and cash this year.”

Second Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Revenues at Textron Aviation were up $72 million, primarily due to volume and mix.

Textron Aviation delivered 45 new Citation jets and 23 King Air turboprops in the quarter, compared to 36 jets and 30 King Airs in last year’s second quarter.

Textron Aviation recorded a segment profit of $81 million in the second quarter compared to $88 million a year ago. The decrease in segment profit in the second quarter was primarily due to an unfavorable impact from the mix of products sold in the period.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the second quarter was $1.1 billion, up $122 million from the end of the first quarter.

Bell

Bell revenues were down $46 million, as Bell delivered 6 V-22’s in the quarter, flat with last year’s second quarter, 9 H-1’s compared to 6 H-1’s last year and 24 commercial helicopters, compared to 39 units last year.

Segment profit was down $20 million, primarily due to the lower volume and mix.

Bell backlog at the end of the second quarter was $4.9 billion, down $376 million from the end of the first quarter.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems increased $165 million, primarily due to higher volumes in our Weapons and Sensors and Unmanned Systems product lines. Segment profit was up $39 million, reflecting the higher volumes and mix.

Textron Systems’ backlog at the end of the second quarter was $2.3 billion, down $242 million from the end of the first quarter.

Industrial

Industrial revenues increased $77 million due to higher volumes and the impact of acquisitions.

Segment profit increased $13 million reflecting the higher volumes.

Finance

Finance segment revenues decreased $4 million and segment profit decreased $3 million.

Non-GAAP Measures

Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions is a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release.

Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions 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. Our definition of Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions adjusts net cash from operating activities of continuing operations (GAAP) for the following: dividends received from Textron Financial Corporation (TFC), capital contributions to TFC 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. Our calculation provides a focus on cash generated from true manufacturing operations, before discretionary and required pension contributions. While we believe this calculation provides an additional relevant measure of liquidity, it does not necessarily provide the amount available for discretionary expenditures since we have certain non-discretionary obligations that are not deducted from the measure. We further believe this measure may be useful for period-over-period comparisons of underlying business trends and our ongoing operations, however, our calculation may differ significantly from methods used by other companies to compute similar measures.
