Textron Reports Second Quarter 2014 Income from Continuing Operations of $0.51 per Share, up 27.5%; Revenues up 23.5%

July 16, 2014

PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported second quarter 2014 income from continuing operations of $0.51 per share, up 27.5 percent from $0.40 per share in the second quarter of 2013.

Total revenues in the quarter were $3.5 billion, up from $2.8 billion in the second quarter of 2013, a 23.5 percent increase. Beechcraft contributed $425 million to the increase. Segment profit in the quarter was $304 million, up $91 million from the second quarter of 2013.

Second quarter 2014 manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions was $271 million compared to a use of cash of $362 million during the second quarter of 2013. The company contributed $27 million to its pension plans during the second quarter.

“Revenues at Textron Aviation, Bell and Industrial were up during the quarter, while revenues at Textron Systems were down, as we expected,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. Donnelly continued, “Operationally, we achieved significant margin improvements across our manufacturing businesses, reflecting higher volumes and good performance.”

This year’s results reflect a full-quarter impact from the company’s acquisition of Beechcraft, completed at the end of the first quarter. This includes a $33 million ($0.08 per share, after tax) negative impact from fair value step-up adjustments of acquired inventories sold during the quarter and $20 million ($0.05 per share, after-tax) in restructuring costs, recorded as part of Acquisition and Restructuring Costs. Last year’s results included $28 million ($0.07 per share, after-tax) in severance costs recorded in Cessna’s segment results.

Outlook

Textron confirmed its 2014 earnings per share from continuing operations guidance of $1.92 to $2.12 and its expectation for cash flow from continuing operations of the manufacturing group before pension contributions of $600 million to $700 million with expected pension contributions of about $90 million.

Second Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Revenues at Textron Aviation were up $623 million, reflecting the impact of the Beechcraft acquisition and higher jet deliveries. Textron Aviation delivered 36 new jets in the quarter, up from 20 jets in last year’s second quarter, and 34 King Air turboprops.

Textron Aviation recorded a segment profit of $28 million in the second quarter compared to a loss of $50 million a year ago in our Cessna segment. The improvement reflects higher volumes, $28 million in severance costs recorded in the second quarter of 2013 and the impact of the Beechcraft acquisition.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the second quarter was $1.4 billion, down $100 million from the end of the first quarter.

Bell

Bell revenues increased $94 million, primarily the result of higher aircraft deliveries and a $41 million revenue benefit related to settlement with the U.S. DOD related to the System Development and Demonstration phase of the company’s former Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (ARH) program, which was terminated in October 2008.

Bell delivered 10 V-22’s and 8 H-1’s in the quarter, compared to 9 V-22’s and 6 H-1’s in last year’s second quarter and 46 commercial helicopters, compared to 44 units last year.

Segment profit increased $6 million due to the ARH settlement.

Bell backlog at the end of the second quarter was $5.8 billion, down $422 million from the end of the first quarter.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems decreased $140 million, reflecting lower overall volumes.

Segment profit was flat despite lower volumes, reflecting favorable performance across all product lines and favorable mix of contract revenues during the quarter.

Textron Systems’ backlog at the end of the second quarter was $3.0 billion, up $186 million from the end of the first quarter.

Industrial

Industrial revenues increased $93 million, primarily due to higher overall volumes and the impact of acquisitions. Segment profit increased $15 million reflecting the higher volumes and favorable performance.

Finance

Finance segment revenues decreased $4 million primarily due to gains on finance receivable dispositions during the second quarter of 2013. Segment profit decreased $8 million primarily due to the prior year impacts of loan loss reversals and gains on the finance receivables dispositions, partially offset by lower administrative expenses.

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.
