Raytheon Reports Strong First Quarter 2018 Results

- Net sales of $6.3 billion, up 4.5 percent

- EPS from continuing operations of $2.20, up 27.2 percent

- Operating cash flow from continuing operations of $283 million

- Increased annual dividend by 8.8 percent, as previously announced

- Increased full-year 2018 guidance for sales and EPS

WALTHAM, Mass., April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) today announced net sales for the first quarter 2018 of $6.3 billion, up 4.5 percent compared to $6.0 billion in the first quarter 2017. First quarter 2018 EPS from continuing operations was $2.20 compared to $1.73 in the first quarter 2017. The increase in the first quarter 2018 EPS from continuing operations was primarily driven by operational improvements and lower taxes.

Pictured here is Raytheon's Cybersecurity Operations Center near Washington, DC, where the cyber threat is tracked in real time.

"We delivered strong operating performance in the first quarter with our sales, earnings per share and cash flow all ahead of our expectations," said Thomas A. Kennedy, Raytheon Chairman and CEO. "We continue to position the company for the future by executing our strategy and investing in advanced capabilities that align with our global customers' evolving requirements."

Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the first quarter 2018 was $283 million compared to an outflow of $41 million for the first quarter 2017. The increase in operating cash flow from continuing operations in the first quarter 2018 was primarily due to favorable collections and lower net cash taxes.

In the first quarter 2018, the company repurchased 1.9 million shares of common stock for $400 million. In addition, as previously announced, Raytheon's Board of Directors voted to increase the annual dividend rate by 8.8 percent, from $3.19 to $3.47 per share, the fourteenth consecutive annual dividend increase.

The company had bookings of $6.3 billion in the first quarter 2018, compared with $5.7 billion in the first quarter 2017.

1 Deferred Revenue Adjustment and Amortization of Acquired Intangibles represent the unfavorable impact of the acquisition accounting adjustments to record acquired deferred revenue at fair value and the amortization of acquired intangible assets for all business segments.


2 As previously reported, in the first quarter 2018, the company adopted the new retirement benefit standard, Accounting Standards Update 2017-07. As a result, all components of FAS pension and postretirement benefit expense, other than service costs, were reclassified from operating income to non-operating income, with no impact to net income. The outlook above reflects this change.
