Textron reported first quarter 2017 income from continuing operations of $0.37 per share or $0.46 per share of adjusted income from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, compared to $0.55 per share in the first quarter of 2016. During this year’s first quarter, the company recorded $37 million of pre-tax special charges ($0.09 per share, after-tax).

Revenues in the quarter were $3.1 billion, down 3.4 percent from the first quarter of 2016. Textron segment profit in the quarter was $219 million, down $61 million from the first quarter of 2016.

“Overall, revenues and profit were down in the quarter consistent with our expectations,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. “We are continuing to execute our restructuring plan while maintaining our focus on new product investment and the integration of acquired businesses, all of which will have a positive impact on our long term growth outlook.”

Cash Flow

Net cash used by operating activities of continuing operations of the manufacturing group for the first quarter totaled $143 million, compared to a use of cash of $148 million in last year’s first quarter. Manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions, a non-GAAP measure that is defined and reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release, reflected a use of cash of $205 million compared to a use of cash of $222 million during last year’s first quarter.

Outlook

As a result of the March 6, 2017 closing of the Arctic Cat acquisition, the company is adjusting its 2017 earnings guidance. The company now expects full-year 2017 GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations in a range of $2.22 to $2.45, or $2.40 to $2.60 on an adjusted basis (non-GAAP), which is reconciled to GAAP in an attachment to this release. This reflects earnings per share dilution of $0.10 per share, consistent with our expectations at the time we announced the transaction. The company also estimates that it will record 2017 full-year Arctic Cat pretax acquisition and restructuring costs of $30 million on the special charges line, which is included in its GAAP guidance range.

The company still expects net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations of the manufacturing group of $1,045 million to $1,145 million and manufacturing cash flow before pension contributions (the non-GAAP measure) of $650 to $750 million.
