WALTHAM, Mass., (January 24, 2013) - Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) announced fourth quarter 2012 Adjusted EPS1 of $1.60 per diluted share compared to $1.72 per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2011. The change was due to the timing of operational improvements in the fourth quarter 2012 compared to the fourth quarter 2011. On a full-year basis, 2012 operational improvements were relatively consistent with 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 EPS from continuing operations was $1.41 compared to $1.56 in the fourth quarter 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 included a $0.06 net charge associated with the impact of early debt retirement. Fourth quarter 2012 also included an unfavorable FAS/CAS Adjustment of $0.13, compared with an unfavorable FAS/CAS Adjustment of $0.16 in the fourth quarter 2011.
Full-year 2012 Adjusted EPS1 was $6.21 per diluted share compared to $5.85 for the full-year 2011, up 6.2 percent. The increase was primarily driven by capital deployment actions and operational improvements. Full-year 2012 EPS from continuing operations was $5.65 compared to $5.22 for the full-year 2011.
“Raytheon’s solid operating performance in 2012 was a result of our continued focus on improving productivity and program execution, which delivered value to both our customers and shareholders,” said William H. Swanson, Raytheon’s Chairman and CEO. “Customer demand for advanced technologies and affordable solutions drove strong orders for both the fourth quarter and the year, and resulted in a record funded backlog.”
1 Adjusted EPS is EPS from continuing operations attributable to Raytheon Company common stockholders excluding the impact of the FAS/CAS Adjustment, and from time to time, certain other items. Q4 2012 and full-year 2012 Adjusted EPS also excludes the impact of the early retirement of debt as discussed above.
