Textron Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results


Strong operating margins at Bell and Systems
Recovery continues at Industrial and Aviation end-markets
Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions of $344 million, up 90% from prior year


Providence, Rhode Island – October 29, 2020 – Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported third quarter 2020 net income of $0.50 per share, compared to $0.95 per share in the third quarter of 2019. Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.53 per share for the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted net income excludes $7 million of pre-tax special charges ($0.03 per share, after-tax) related to the restructuring plan announced in the second quarter.

“Operationally, we saw continued strength in our execution at our defense businesses with solid margin performance at Bell and Systems,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. “On the commercial side, we saw a continuation of the recovery at Industrial with strong operating results and margin improvement. At Aviation, we were encouraged by the flow of aircraft orders in the quarter as our sales teams re-engaged customers in the field.”

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities of the manufacturing group for the third quarter totaled $368 million, compared to $238 million in last year’s third quarter. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions, a non-GAAP measure, totaled $344 million, compared to $181 million last year.

Donnelly continued, “The execution of our teams in a very challenging operating environment yielded another strong quarter of cash flow.”

Third Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Revenues at Textron Aviation of $795 million were down $406 million from the third quarter of 2019, primarily due to lower Citation jet volume of $234 million and lower commercial turboprop volume of $83 million, reflecting a decline in demand related to the pandemic, and lower aftermarket volume of $95 million, reflecting lower aircraft utilization.

Textron Aviation delivered 25 jets, down from 45 last year, and 21 commercial turboprops, down from 39 last year.

Segment loss was $29 million in the third quarter, down from $104 million of profit last year, primarily due to the lower volume and mix.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the third quarter was $1.8 billion.






Bell

Bell revenues were $793 million, up $10 million from last year on higher military revenues, partially offset by lower commercial revenues, primarily due to the mix of aircraft sold.

Bell delivered 41 commercial helicopters in the quarter, down from 42 last year.

Segment profit of $119 million was up $9 million, primarily due to a favorable impact from performance.

Bell backlog at the end of the third quarter was $5.7 billion.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems were $302 million, down $9 million from last year, primarily due to lower volume of $20 million at the TRU Simulation + Training business.

Segment profit of $40 million was up $9 million from last year due to a favorable impact from performance, partially offset by lower volume and mix.

Textron Systems’ backlog at the end of the third quarter was $1.9 billion.

Industrial

Industrial revenues of $832 million were down $118 million from last year, primarily due to lower volume and mix in the Specialized Vehicles product line, principally reflecting the timing of snowmobile deliveries and reduced demand in the ground support equipment business, which has been impacted by the reduction in global air travel.

Segment profit was $58 million, up $11 million from the third quarter of 2019, primarily related to a favorable impact from performance of $24 million, principally reflecting cost reduction activities, partially offset by lower volume and mix.

Finance

Finance segment revenues were $13 million, and profit was $1 million.

(a)In June 2020, we initiated a restructuring plan to reduce operating expenses through headcount reductions, facility consolidations and other actions in response to the economic challenges and uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The restructuring plan primarily impacts the TRU Simulation + Training (TRU) business within the Textron Systems segment, the Textron Aviation segment and the Textron Specialized Vehicles business within the Industrial segment. In connection with this plan, special charges for the three and nine months ended October 3, 2020, includes severance and related costs of $5 million and $56 million, respectively, asset impairment charges of $2 million and $17 million, respectively, and contract termination and other facility closing costs of $0 million and $12 million, respectively.  Special charges for the nine months ended October 3, 2020 also includes the impairment of indefinite-lived trade name intangible assets totaling $32 million in the Textron Aviation segment and $7 million in the Industrial segment resulting from changes in valuation assumptions related to the economic and business disruptions caused by the pandemic.
(b)In connection with the restructuring plan described above, we ceased manufacturing at TRU's facility in Montreal, Canada, resulting in the production suspension of our commercial air transport simulators. As a result of this action and market conditions, we recorded a $55 million charge in the second quarter of 2020 to write-down the related inventory to its net realizable value.
(c)Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures as defined in "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" attached to this release.

TEXTRON INC.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)
We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain significant items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, results from our ongoing business operations. We believe that these non-GAAP measures may be useful for period-over-period comparisons of underlying business trends and our ongoing business performance, however, they should be used in conjunction with GAAP measures. Our non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures, and other companies may define similarly named measures differently. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in the entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. We utilize the following definition for the non-GAAP financial measure included in this release:
Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share
Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share both exclude Special charges, net of taxes and an Inventory charge, net of taxes, related to the restructuring plan initiated in the second quarter of 2020. We consider items recorded in Special charges such as enterprise-wide restructuring, certain asset impairment charges and acquisition-related restructuring, integration and transaction costs, to be of a non-recurring nature that is not indicative of ongoing operations. The inventory charge is also excluded as it relates to the write-down of inventory in connection with an action taken under the restructuring plan at our TRU Simulation + Training (TRU) business. Due to the substantial decline in demand and order cancellations for flight simulators resulting from the impact of the pandemic on the commercial air transportation business, we ceased manufacturing at TRU’s facility in Montreal, Canada, resulting in the production suspension of its commercial air transport simulators. As a result of this action and current market conditions, the related inventory was written-down to its net realizable value.
Manufacturing Cash Flow Before Pension Contributions
Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions adjusts net cash from operating activities (GAAP) for the following:
Deducts capital expenditures and includes proceeds from an insurance recovery and the sale of property, plant and equipment to arrive at the net capital investment required to support ongoing manufacturing operations;
Excludes dividends received from Textron Financial Corporation (TFC) and capital contributions to TFC provided under the Support Agreement and debt agreements as these cash flows are not representative of manufacturing operations;
Adds back pension contributions as we consider our pension obligations to be debt-like liabilities. Additionally, these contributions can fluctuate significantly from period to period and we believe that they are not representative of cash used by our manufacturing operations during the period;
Excludes taxes paid related to the gain realized in 2018 on the Tools and Test business disposition. We have made this adjustment to the non-GAAP measure because we believe this use of cash is not representative of cash used by our manufacturing operations.

While we believe this measure provides a focus on cash generated from manufacturing operations, before pension contributions, and may be used as an additional relevant measure of liquidity, it does not necessarily provide the amount available for discretionary expenditures since we have certain non-discretionary obligations that are not deducted from the measure.
