Textron Reports First Quarter 2023 Results

April 27, 2023
  • EPS of $0.92; adjusted EPS of $1.05
  • Net cash from operating activities of $153 million in the first quarter of 2023
  • $377 million returned to shareholders through share repurchases in the first quarter

Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported first quarter 2023 net income of $0.92 per share, as compared to $0.88 per share in the first quarter of 2022. Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, was $1.05 per share for the first quarter of 2023, compared to $0.97 per share in the first quarter of 2022.

“In the quarter, we saw revenue growth at Aviation, Industrial and Systems,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. "At Bell, we expect to see revenue growth through the remainder of the year following the resolution of the FLRAA contract protest earlier this month, which allowed us to restart work on the program."

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities of the manufacturing group for the first quarter was $153 million, compared to $225 million last year. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, totaled $104 million for the first quarter, compared to $209 million last year.

In the quarter, Textron returned $377 million to shareholders through share repurchases.

First Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Textron Aviation’s revenues were $1.1 billion, up $109 million from last year's first quarter, reflecting higher pricing of $58 million and higher volume of $51 million, which included higher defense and aftermarket volume.

Textron Aviation delivered 35 jets in the quarter, down from 39 last year, and 34 commercial turboprops, up from 31 in last year's first quarter.

Segment profit was $125 million in the first quarter, up $15 million from a year ago, largely due to favorable pricing, net of inflation, and the impact from higher volume, partially offset by an unfavorable impact from performance.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the first quarter was $6.5 billion.

Bell

Bell revenues in the quarter were $621 million, down $213 million from the first quarter of 2022, due to lower military revenues, reflecting lower spares and support volume and V-22 and H-1 production volume.

Bell delivered 22 commercial helicopters in the quarter, down from 25 last year.

Segment profit of $60 million was down $31 million from last year's first quarter, largely due to lower volume and mix, partially offset by a favorable impact from performance of $29 million, reflecting lower research and development costs.

Bell backlog at the end of the first quarter was $4.6 billion.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems were $306 million, up $33 million from last year's first quarter, largely reflecting higher volume.

Segment profit of $34 million was up $6 million, compared with the first quarter of 2022, primarily due to a favorable impact from performance.

Textron Systems’ backlog at the end of the first quarter was $2.0 billion.

Industrial

Industrial revenues were $932 million, up $94 million from last year's first quarter, largely due to higher volume and mix at both Textron Specialized Vehicles and Kautex.

Segment profit of $41 million was up $2 million from the first quarter of 2022, primarily due to higher volume and mix and a favorable impact from pricing, net of inflation, principally in the Specialized Vehicles product line, largely offset by an unfavorable impact from performance.

Textron eAviation

Textron eAviation segment revenues were $4 million and segment loss was $9 million in the first quarter of 2023, primarily related to research and development costs.

Finance

Finance segment revenues were $12 million, and profit was $8 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain significant items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, results from our ongoing business operations. We believe that these non-GAAP measures may be useful for period-over-period comparisons of underlying business trends and our ongoing business performance, however, they should be used in conjunction with GAAP measures. Our non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures, and other companies may define similarly named measures differently. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. We utilize the following definitions for the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and have provided a reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP amounts for each measure:

Segment Profit
Segment profit is an important measure used by our chief operating decision maker for evaluating performance and for decision-making purposes. Beginning in 2023, we changed how we measure our manufacturing segment operating results to exclude the non-service components of pension and postretirement income, net; LIFO inventory provision; and intangible asset amortization. This measure also continues to exclude interest expense, net for Manufacturing group; certain corporate expenses; gains/losses on major business dispositions; and special charges. The prior period has been recast to conform to this presentation. The measurement for the Finance segment includes interest income and expense along with intercompany interest income and expense.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share
Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude special charges, net of tax and gains/losses on major business disposition, net of tax. We consider items recorded in special charges, such as enterprise-wide restructuring, certain asset impairment charges, and acquisition-related restructuring, integration and transaction costs, to be of a non-recurring nature that is not indicative of ongoing operations.

Beginning in 2023, these measures also exclude LIFO inventory provision, net of tax and Intangible asset amortization, net of tax. LIFO inventory provision is excluded to improve comparability with other companies in our industry who have not elected to use the LIFO inventory costing method. Intangible asset amortization is excluded to improve comparability as the impact of such amortization can vary substantially from company to company depending upon the nature and extent of acquisitions and exclusion of this expense is consistent with the presentation of non-GAAP measures provided by other companies within our industry. Management believes that it is important for investors to understand that these intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. The prior period has been recast to conform to this presentation.

TEXTRON INC.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Continued)
(Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)

Manufacturing Cash Flow Before Pension Contributions
Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions adjusts net cash from operating activities (GAAP) for the following:

  • Deducts capital expenditures and includes proceeds from insurance recoveries and the sale of property, plant and equipment to arrive at the net capital investment required to support ongoing manufacturing operations;
  • Excludes dividends received from Textron Financial Corporation (TFC) and capital contributions to TFC provided under the Support Agreement and debt agreements as these cash flows are not representative of manufacturing operations;
  • Adds back pension contributions as we consider our pension obligations to be debt-like liabilities. Additionally, these contributions can fluctuate significantly from period to period and we believe that they are not representative of cash used by our manufacturing operations during the period.

While we believe this measure provides a focus on cash generated from manufacturing operations, before pension contributions, and may be used as 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.
