WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) announced fourth quarter 2010 Adjusted EPS of $1.57 per diluted share compared to $1.31 per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2009(1), up 20 percent.  The increase was primarily driven by operational improvements and capital deployment actions.  Fourth quarter 2010 EPS from continuing operations was $1.37 compared to $1.30 in the fourth quarter 2009. Fourth quarter 2010 and fourth quarter 2009 EPS from continuing operations included net charges of $0.10 and $0.03, respectively, associated with the impacts of the early debt retirements. Fourth quarter 2010 also included FAS/CAS pension expense of $0.11, compared to $0.01 of FAS/CAS pension income in the fourth quarter 2009.

"Raytheon's focus on performance drove solid operating results," said William H. Swanson, Raytheon's Chairman and CEO. "The depth and breadth of our product portfolio coupled with outstanding execution positions the company well going forward."

Net sales in the fourth quarter 2010 were $6.9 billion compared to $6.7 billion in the fourth quarter 2009.  

Operating cash flow from continuing operations in the fourth quarter 2010 was $861 million after a $750 million discretionary cash contribution made to the Company's pension plans, compared to $1,073 million in the fourth quarter 2009. The strong operating cash flow from continuing operations in the fourth quarter 2010 was primarily due to the timing of collections and lower cash taxes.

In the fourth quarter 2010, the Company repurchased 5.3 million shares of common stock for $250 million, as part of its previously announced share repurchase program.  For the full-year 2010 the Company repurchased 29.0 million shares of common stock for $1,450 million.

As previously announced, in the fourth quarter 2010, the Company issued $2.0 billion in long-term debt and retired $678 million in long-term debt maturing in 2012 and 2013.  As a result of the debt retirement and issuance of longer maturities, the Company extended the term of its debt structure at lower interest rates.  

Also as previously announced, in the fourth quarter 2010, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Applied Signal Technology, Inc. (AST) and commenced a cash tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of AST. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter 2011 and AST will become part of Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) business.

Full-Year Financial Results

Full-year 2010 Adjusted EPS was $5.58 per diluted share compared to $4.87 for the full-year 2009(2), up 15 percent.  The increase was primarily driven by operational improvements and capital deployment actions.

(1) 2010 and 2011 EPS from continuing operations includes $43 million and $2 million of income, respectively, representing the difference between our post-retirement benefits (PRB) credit under FAS in accordance with GAAP and our PRB adjustment under CAS (FAS/CAS PRB adjustment).  In order to more clearly show each business' underlying operational performance, we will begin treating the FAS/CAS PRB adjustment (previously reported as part of each business) consistent with the FAS/CAS pension adjustment for management reporting in 2011.  Beginning in 2011, we will change our segment presentation to exclude from each business segment the amounts related to the FAS/CAS PRB adjustment and combine such amounts with our FAS/CAS pension adjustment. The foregoing changes in segment presentation and the FAS/CAS pension adjustment are not reflected in the amounts above but will be reflected in future reporting periods in 2011.


(2) Adjusted EPS is EPS from continuing operations attributable to Raytheon Company common stockholders excluding the EPS impact of the FAS/CAS pension adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items.  In addition to the FAS/CAS pension adjustment, 2010 Adjusted EPS excludes the impacts of the UK Border Agency program adjustment in Q2 2010, a favorable tax settlement in Q3 2010 and an early debt retirement in Q4 2010.  Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure.  See attachment F for a reconciliation of this measure and a discussion of why the Company is presenting this information.


(3) ROIC is a non-GAAP financial measure. ROIC has been calculated using the Company's revised ROIC definition as detailed in attachment G. We adjusted the ROIC definition to exclude any change from pension contributions, which eliminates all of the non-operational pension impact from the calculation in order to more clearly reflect the underlying business performance in ROIC.  See attachment G for more information on the revised and prior ROIC definitions and the Company’s use of ROIC.


* 2011 Outlook assumes the closing of the acquisition of Applied Signal Technology in first quarter 2011.  The AST acquisition is subject to certain customary closing conditions as discussed more fully in our Schedule TO, as amended, filed with the SEC.




The Company has provided its financial outlook for 2011.  Charts containing additional information on the Company's 2011 outlook are available on the Company's website at www.raytheon.com/ir.

(1)  These amounts are not measures of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  They should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial performance in accordance with GAAP and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner.  These amounts exclude the FAS/CAS Pension Adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items.  We are providing these measures because management uses them for the purposes of evaluating and forecasting the Company's financial performance and believes that they provide additional insights into the Company’s underlying business performance.  We also believe that they allow investors to benefit from being able to assess our operating performance in the context of how our principal customer, the U.S. Government, allows us to recover pension costs and to better compare our operating performance to others in the industry on that same basis.

Adjusted EPS is diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to Raytheon Company common stockholders excluding the EPS impact of the FAS/CAS Pension Adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items.  In addition to the FAS/CAS Pension Adjustment, fourth quarter 2010 and 2009 Adjusted EPS exclude the earnings per share impact of the charges associated with the make-whole provision on the early retirement of debt and the impact of the acceleration of deferred gains related to terminated interest rate swaps on retired debt.  In addition to the FAS/CAS Pension Adjustment, 2010 and 2009 Adjusted EPS exclude an adjustment on the UK Border Agency program, on which RSL was notified of its termination in the second quarter of 2010, at the UK statutory tax rate that was in effect in the second quarter of 28%, the favorable tax settlement in the third quarter 2010 as a result of our receipt of final approval from the IRS and the U.S Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation of the IRS’ examination of our tax returns for the 1998-2005 tax years, and the impacts of the early retirement of debt in the fourth quarter 2010 and 2009, previously described.

Raytheon Company

Preliminary Return on Invested Capital Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Fourth Quarter 2010












Revised ROIC Calculation















Our revised definition of Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) is the same as our prior definition except stockholders’ equity is now adjusted to add back the Company’s liability for defined benefit pension plans, net of tax, instead of just the impact of the accounting standard for employers' accounting for defined benefit pension plans.  We adjusted the ROIC definition to exclude any change from pension contributions, which eliminates all of the non-operational pension impact from the calculation in order to more clearly reflect the underlying business performance in ROIC.  We define ROIC as income from continuing operations excluding the after-tax effect of the FAS/CAS Pension Adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items, plus after-tax net interest expense plus one-third of operating lease expense after-tax (estimate of interest portion of operating lease expense) divided by average invested capital after capitalizing operating leases (operating lease expense times a multiplier of 8), adding financial guarantees less net investment in Discontinued Operations, and adding back the liability for defined benefit pension plans, net of tax.  2009 ROIC also excludes from income from continuing operations the after-tax effect of the fourth quarter 2009 charge associated with the make-whole provision on the early retirement of debt and 2010 ROIC also excludes from income from continuing operations the after-tax effect of the second quarter 2010 UK Border Agency program adjustment, the third quarter 2010 favorable tax settlement and the after-tax effect of the fourth quarter 2010 charge associated with the make-whole provision on the early retirement of debt. ROIC is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner.  ROIC should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses ROIC as a measure of the efficiency and effectiveness of its use of capital and as an element of management compensation.

Preliminary Return on Invested Capital Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Fourth Quarter 2010













Prior ROIC Calculation
















Our prior definition of Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) was income from continuing operations excluding the after-tax effect of the FAS/CAS Pension Adjustment plus after-tax net interest expense plus one-third of operating lease expense after-tax (estimate of interest portion of operating lease expense) divided by average invested capital after capitalizing operating leases (operating lease expense times a multiplier of 8), adding financial guarantees less net investment in Discontinued Operations, and adding back the impact of the accounting standard for employers' accounting for defined benefit pension and other postretirement plans.  2009 ROIC also excludes from income from continuing operations the after-tax effect of the fourth quarter 2009 charge associated with the make-whole provision on the early retirement of debt and 2010 ROIC also excludes from income from continuing operations the after-tax effect of the second quarter 2010 UK Border Agency program adjustment, the third quarter 2010 favorable tax settlement and the after-tax effect of the fourth quarter 2010 charge associated with the make-whole provision on the early retirement of debt.  ROIC is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner.  ROIC should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses ROIC as a measure of the efficiency and effectiveness of its use of capital and as an element of management compensation.
