Raytheon Reports Strong Third Quarter 2017 Results
- Bookings of $7.0 billion; backlog of $36.7 billion
- Net sales of $6.3 billion, up 4.5 percent
- EPS from continuing operations of $1.97
- Operating cash flow from continuing operations of $382 million
- Updated full-year 2017 guidance

WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) today announced net sales for the third quarter 2017 of $6.3 billion, up 4.5 percent compared to $6.0 billion in the third quarter 2016. Third quarter 2017 EPS from continuing operations was $1.97 compared to $1.84 in the third quarter 2016. The increase in the third quarter 2017 EPS from continuing operations was primarily driven by operational improvements.

"We delivered strong bookings and solid operating performance in the third quarter," said Thomas A. Kennedy, Raytheon Chairman and CEO. "Global customer demand drove an increase in our backlog, which positions us well for continued growth in 2018."

Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the third quarter 2017 was $382 million compared to $640 million for the third quarter 2016. As expected, the change in operating cash flow from continuing operations was primarily due to higher required pension contributions in the third quarter 2017, partially offset by the timing of collections.

In the third quarter 2017, the company repurchased 1.1 million shares of common stock for $200 million. Year-to-date 2017, the company repurchased 4.4 million shares of common stock for $700 million.

Bookings in the third quarter 2017 were $7.0 billion, slightly higher than the third quarter 2016. Backlog at the end of the third quarter 2017 was $36.7 billion, an increase of approximately $950 million compared to the third quarter 2016.

1 Deferred Revenue Adjustment and Amortization of Acquired Intangibles represent the unfavorable impact of the acquisition accounting adjustments to record acquired deferred revenue at fair value and the amortization of acquired intangible assets for all business segments.

2 The full-year 2017 FAS/CAS Adjustment reflects a $39 million ($0.09 per share) reduction, of which $26 million ($0.06 per share) was recorded in Q3 2017 and $13 million ($0.03 per share) is expected to be recorded in Q4 2017. This is due to the annual update in Q3 2017 of the actuarial estimates for pension and other postretirement benefit plans.
