Providence, Rhode Island - October 28, 2021 - Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) today reported third quarter 2021 income from continuing operations of $0.82 per share.

"In the quarter, we saw solid execution, higher manufacturing margin and continued strong cash generation," said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. "At Textron Aviation, we continued to see signs of a strong recovery in the general aviation market with a 49% increase in revenues over last year's third quarter and a $721 million increase in backlog."

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations of the manufacturing group for the third quarter was $333 million, compared to $368 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 $271 million for the third quarter, compared to $344 million last year. Year to date, manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions totaled $851 million.

In the quarter, Textron returned $299 million to shareholders through share repurchases. Year to date, share repurchases totaled $586 million.

Textron also expects cash flow from continuing operations of the manufacturing group before pension contributions to be in a range of $1 billion to $1.1 billion with planned pension contributions of about $50 million.


Third Quarter Segment Results

Textron Aviation

Revenues at Textron Aviation of $1.2 billion were up $386 million from the third quarter of 2020, largely due to higher Citation jet volume of $290 million, aftermarket volume of $62 million and commercial turboprop volume of $48 million.

Textron Aviation delivered 49 jets, up from 25 last year, and 35 commercial turboprops, up from 21 last year.

Segment profit was $98 million in the third quarter, up $127 million from a year ago, largely due to the higher volume and mix of $96 million and favorable pricing, net of inflation of $22 million.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the third quarter was $3.5 billion.

Bell

Bell revenues were $769 million, down $24 million from last year, largely reflecting lower military revenues.

Bell delivered 33 commercial helicopters in the quarter, down from 41 last year.

Segment profit of $105 million was down $14 million, primarily due to lower military revenues.

Bell backlog at the end of the third quarter was $4.1 billion.

Textron Systems

Revenues at Textron Systems were $299 million, down $3 million from last year's third quarter due to lower volume of $39 million in the Air Systems product line which primarily reflected the impact from the U.S. Army's withdrawal from Afghanistan on the product line's fee-for-service contracts, partially offset by higher volume in the Other product line.

Segment profit of $45 million was up $5 million from a year ago, largely due to a favorable impact from performance and other.

Textron Systems' backlog at the end of the third quarter was $2.2 billion.

Industrial

Industrial revenues were $730 million, down $102 million from last year, reflecting lower volume and mix of $156 million, largely in the Fuel Systems and Functional Components product line reflecting order disruptions related to the global auto OEM supply chain shortages, partially offset by a favorable impact of $44 million from pricing, largely in the Specialized Vehicles product line.

Segment profit of $23 million was down $35 million from the third quarter of 2020, primarily due to the lower volume and mix described above partially offset by higher pricing, net of inflation in the Specialized Vehicles product line.

Finance

Finance segment revenues were $11 million, and profit was $8 million.

(a)In the second quarter of 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 impacted the TRU Simulation + Training business within the Textron Systems segment and the Industrial and Textron Aviation segments. In connection with this plan, we incurred special charges of $10 million and $20 million for the three and nine months ended October 2, 2021, respectively, and $7 million and $85 million for the three and nine months ended October 3, 2020, respectively. Special charges for the nine months ended October 3, 2020 also included the impairment of indefinite-lived trade name intangible assets totaling $39 million, primarily in the Textron Aviation segment.
(b)On January 25, 2021, we completed the sale of TRU Simulation + Training Canada Inc. which resulted in an after-tax gain of $17 million.
(c)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.
(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.

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 Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share
Adjusted income from continuing operations 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. In addition, we have excluded certain impacts of the enterprise-wide restructuring plan on TRU Simulation + Training Canada Inc. (TRU Canada) that are not included within special charges, but are of a non-recurring nature and are not indicative of ongoing operations. At TRU Canada, an inventory charge is excluded as it relates to the write-down of inventory in connection with an action taken under the restructuring plan. 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 Canada's Montreal facility, resulting in the production suspension of its commercial air transport simulators. As a result of this action and market conditions, the related inventory was written down to its net realizable value in the second quarter of 2020. In the first quarter of 2021, TRU Canada was sold and the after-tax gain is excluded as it was incurred in connection with the enterprise-wide restructuring plan.

TEXTRON INC.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Continued)
(Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)

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.
