Raytheon Reports Strong First Quarter 2019 Results

- Net sales of $6.7 billion, up 7.4 percent

- EPS from continuing operations of $2.77, up 25.9 percent

- Increased annual dividend by 8.6 percent, as previously announced

WALTHAM, Mass., April 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) today announced net sales for the first quarter 2019 of $6.7 billion, up 7.4 percent compared to $6.3 billion in the first quarter 2018. First quarter 2019 EPS from continuing operations was $2.77 compared to $2.20 in the first quarter 2018. The increase in the first quarter 2019 EPS from continuing operations was primarily driven by operational improvements and pension-related items.

"We delivered strong operating performance in the first quarter with our company bookings, sales, earnings per share and cash flow all ahead of our expectations," said Thomas A. Kennedy, Raytheon Chairman and CEO. "The Raytheon team remains focused on driving strong execution and future growth by developing and delivering innovative solutions that address our customers' most complex challenges."

Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the first quarter 2019 was an outflow of $411 million compared to an inflow of $283 million for the first quarter 2018. The decrease in operating cash flow from continuing operations in the first quarter 2019 was primarily due to higher net cash taxes and the timing of payments. Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the first quarter 2019 was better than the company's prior guidance.

In the first quarter 2019, the company repurchased 2.8 million shares of common stock for $500 million. In addition, as previously announced, Raytheon's Board of Directors voted to increase the annual dividend rate by 8.6 percent, from $3.47 to $3.77 per share, the fifteenth consecutive annual dividend increase.

The company had bookings of $5.4 billion in the first quarter 2019, compared with $6.3 billion in the first quarter 2018.
