Textron Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

  • Cash flow from operations of $245 million
  • Bell revenue up 7% from prior year, operating margin of 14.4%
  • Textron Systems revenue up 6% from prior year, operating margin of 11.3%
  • Restarted manufacturing operations at Aviation and Industrial segments

PROVIDENCE, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported second quarter 2020 net loss of $0.40 per share, compared to income of $0.93 per share in the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.13 per share for the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted net income excludes $78 million of pre-tax special charges ($0.29 per share, after-tax) related to the restructuring plan announced in June and a non-cash inventory valuation charge of $55 million ($0.24 per share, after-tax) as we ceased manufacturing at our TRU Simulation + Training Montreal facility.

Our defense businesses performed extremely well with both revenue growth and strong operating performance in the quarter, while our commercial businesses worked diligently to reduce costs and mitigate the impacts of temporary plant closures,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. “The outstanding efforts of our teams in response to the challenging conditions arising from the pandemic drove strong cash performance and positive adjusted earnings in the quarter.”

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities of the manufacturing group for the second quarter totaled $245 million, compared to $163 million in last year’s second quarter. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions, a non-GAAP measure, totaled $215 million, compared to $102 million last year.

Second Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Revenues at Textron Aviation of $747 million were down $376 million from the second quarter of 2019, primarily due to lower Citation jet volume of $178 million, reflecting a decline in demand related to the pandemic and to a lesser extent, delays in the acceptance of aircraft related to COVID-19 travel restrictions, and lower aftermarket volume of $120 million, reflecting lower aircraft utilization.

Textron Aviation delivered 23 jets, down from 46 last year, and 15 commercial turboprops, down from 34 last year.

Segment loss was $66 million in the second quarter, down from $105 million of profit last year, primarily due to the lower volume and mix and an unfavorable impact of $27 million from performance. Performance includes $53 million of idle facility costs recognized in the second quarter of 2020.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the second quarter was $1.4 billion.

Bell

Bell revenues were $822 million, up $51 million or 7% from last year, primarily on higher military volume, partially offset by lower commercial volume.

Bell delivered 27 commercial helicopters in the quarter, down from 53 last year.

Segment profit of $118 million was up $15 million, largely on higher military volume, partially offset by an unfavorable impact from performance.

Bell backlog at the end of the second quarter was $5.8 billion.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems were $326 million, up $18 million or 6% from last year, primarily due to higher volume in our Unmanned Systems product line, partially offset by lower volume in the Marine and Land Systems product line.

Segment profit of $37 million was down $12 million from last year, primarily due to an unfavorable impact from performance, which included an $18 million gain related to our contribution of assets to a training business formed with FlightSafety International during last year’s second quarter.

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

Industrial

Industrial revenues of $562 million were down $447 million from last year, $321 million at Fuel Systems and Functional Components and $126 million at Textron Specialized Vehicles, primarily due to temporary manufacturing facility closures.

Segment loss was $11 million, down from $76 million of profit in the second quarter of 2019, primarily related to lower volume and mix, partially offset by favorable performance which included the impact of cost reduction activities. Industrial also recognized approximately $8 million of idle facility costs in the second quarter of 2020.

Finance

Finance segment revenues were down $1 million, and profit was down $2 million to last year’s second quarter.

(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 includes severance and related costs of $51 million, asset impairment charges of $15 million and contract termination and other facility closing costs of $12 million for both the three and six months ended July 4, 2020. Special charges for the six months ended July 4, 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 initiated in the second quarter of 2020, 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 current market conditions, we recorded a $55 million charge to write-down the related inventory to its net realizable value.

(c)

For the three and six months ended July 4, 2020, the diluted average shares used to calculated EPS on a GAAP basis excludes potential common shares (stock options and restricted stock units), due to their antidilutive effect resulting from the net loss. For the three and six months ended June 29, 2019, fully dilutive shares were used to calculate EPS.

(d)

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 (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share

Adjusted net income (loss) 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. For the second quarter of 2020, 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 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.
