October 26, 2023
  • EPS of $1.35; adjusted EPS of $1.49, up 30% from a year ago
  • $235 million returned to shareholders through share repurchases in the third quarter
  • Full-year adjusted EPS outlook raised to $5.45 - $5.55

Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported third quarter 2023 income from continuing operations of $1.35 per share, as compared to $1.06 per share in the third quarter of 2022. Adjusted income from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, was $1.49 per share for the third quarter of 2023, compared to $1.15 per share in the third quarter of 2022.

“In the quarter, we saw higher overall revenues and net operating profit driven by growth at Aviation, Industrial and Systems,” said Textron Chairman and CEO, Scott C. Donnelly. "At Aviation, we saw our strongest order quarter of the year with a 12% increase over the third quarter of 2022."

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities of the manufacturing group for the third quarter was $270 million, compared to $356 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 $205 million for the third quarter, compared to $292 million last year.

In the quarter, Textron returned $235 million to shareholders through share repurchases. Year to date, Textron has returned $885 million to shareholders through share repurchases.

Outlook

Textron now expects 2023 adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations to be in a range of $5.45 to $5.55, up from our previous outlook of $5.20 to $5.30. Textron reiterated its expectation for manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions of $0.9 billion to $1.0 billion, with planned pension contributions of about $50 million.

Third Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Textron Aviation’s revenues were $1.3 billion, up $171 million from last year's third quarter, reflecting higher volume and mix of $89 million and higher pricing of $82 million.

Textron Aviation delivered 39 jets in the quarter, flat with last year, and 38 commercial turboprops, up from 33 in last year's third quarter.

Segment profit was $160 million in the third quarter, up $29 million from a year ago, largely due to favorable pricing, net of inflation, of $39 million and a $23 million favorable impact from higher volume and mix, partially offset by an unfavorable impact from performance of $33 million, largely related to supply chain and labor inefficiencies.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the third quarter was $7.4 billion.

Bell

Bell revenues in the quarter were $754 million, flat with the third quarter of 2022, with lower commercial helicopter volume, largely reflecting supply chain constraints, partially offset by higher military volume.

Bell delivered 23 commercial helicopters in the quarter, down from 49 last year.

Segment profit of $77 million was up $3 million from last year's third quarter, primarily due to a favorable impact from performance of $23 million, largely reflecting lower research and development costs, partially offset by lower volume and mix of $16 million.

Bell backlog at the end of the third quarter was $5.2 billion.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems were $309 million, up $17 million from last year's third quarter, largely reflecting higher volume.

Segment profit of $41 million was up $10 million, compared with the third quarter of 2022, primarily due to a favorable impact from performance of $8 million.

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

Industrial

Industrial revenues were $922 million, up $73 million from last year's third quarter, largely due to higher volume and mix of $45 million at both product lines and an $18 million favorable impact from pricing, principally in the Specialized Vehicles product line.

Segment profit of $51 million was up $15 million from the third quarter of 2022, largely due to a favorable impact from pricing, net of inflation, of $15 million, principally in the Specialized Vehicles product line, and higher volume and mix of $8 million, partially offset by an unfavorable impact of $10 million from performance.

Textron eAviation

Textron eAviation segment revenues were $7 million and segment loss was $19 million in the third quarter of 2023, primarily related to research and development costs.

Finance

Finance segment revenues were $13 million, and profit was $22 million, up $15 million from last year's third quarter largely due to a recovery of amounts that were previously written off related to one customer relationship.

TEXTRON INC.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Outlook
(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 Income from Continuing Operations, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share and Outlook

Adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude special charges, net of tax and gains/losses on major business dispositions, 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.

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

Manufacturing Cash Flow Before Pension Contributions and Outlook

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.
