  • Aviation backlog $5.1 billion, up $1.0 billion from year-end 2021

  • Net cash from operating activities of $225 million, up $118 million from the first quarter of 2021

PROVIDENCE, R.I., April 28, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported first quarter 2022 net income of $0.88 per share, compared with $0.75 per share, or $0.70 per share of adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, in the first quarter of 2021.

"In the quarter, we saw higher overall revenues, net operating profit and cash generation as compared to last year's first quarter," said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. "At Textron Aviation, we saw continued strong order momentum with backlog growth of $1 billion and solid execution with segment profit margin of 11.6%."

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities of the manufacturing group for the first quarter was $225 million, compared to $107 million last year. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, totaled $209 million for the first quarter, compared to $71 million last year.

In the quarter, Textron returned $157 million to shareholders through share repurchases.

First Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Revenues at Textron Aviation of $1.0 billion were up $175 million from the first quarter of 2021, largely due to higher aircraft and aftermarket volume.

Textron Aviation delivered 39 jets in the quarter, up from 28 last year, and 31 commercial turboprops, up from 14 in last year's first quarter.

Segment profit was $121 million in the first quarter, up $74 million from a year ago, largely due to the impact from higher volume and mix of $55 million and favorable pricing, net of inflation of $16 million.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the first quarter was $5.1 billion.

Bell

Bell revenues were $834 million, down $12 million from last year, due to lower commercial revenues of $32 million, largely reflecting the mix of aircraft sold during the periods, partially offset by higher military revenues of $20 million.

Bell delivered 25 commercial helicopters in the quarter, up from 17 last year.

Segment profit of $98 million was down $7 million, primarily reflecting lower volume and mix described above, partially offset by a favorable impact from performance.

Bell backlog at the end of the first quarter was $4.8 billion.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems were $273 million, down $55 million from last year's first quarter due to lower volume of $59 million, primarily reflecting the impact of the U.S. Army’s withdrawal from Afghanistan on our fee-for-service and aircraft support contracts.

Segment profit of $33 million was down $18 million from a year ago, largely due to the impact of lower volume and mix of $11 million and an unfavorable impact from performance of $9 million, primarily reflecting lower net favorable program adjustments related to our fee-for-service contracts.

Textron Systems’ backlog at the end of the first quarter was $2.1 billion.

Industrial

Industrial revenues were $838 million, up $13 million from last year, primarily due to a favorable impact of $46 million from pricing, principally in the Specialized Vehicles product line, partially offset by lower volume and mix in the Fuel Systems and Functional Components product line due to the impact of global supply chain shortages on our auto OEM customers.

Segment profit of $43 million was down $4 million from the first quarter of 2021, primarily due to the lower volume and mix described above.

Finance

Finance segment revenues were $16 million, and profit was $9 million.

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 their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. We utilize the following definitions for the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and have provided a reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP amounts for each measure:

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude special charges, net of tax. 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 gain on disposition, net of tax is also excluded as it relates to a disposition in connection with our enterprise-wide restructuring plan, which resulted in the sale of the TRU Simulation + Training Canada Inc. business.

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 insurance recoveries 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.

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.
