|Raytheon Reports Strong Second Quarter 2004 Performance, Offset by Previously Announced Settlement of Class Action Shareholder Lawsuit|
|* Bookings of $6 billion, record backlog of $32 billion * Sales of $4.9 billion, up 11 percent * Free cash flow from continuing operations of $818 million * As a result of charges of $0.51 per share from the settlement of a class action shareholder lawsuit and $0.06 per share from the early retirement of debt the Company reported a loss per share of $0.22 from continuing operations|
WALTHAM, Mass., Jul 29, 2004 (PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX) -- Raytheon Company reported second quarter 2004 income from continuing operations of $152 million or $0.35 per diluted share excluding the effect of charges related to the previously announced settlement of a class action shareholder lawsuit and from the early retirement of debt. Including those charges, the second quarter 2004 loss from continuing operations was $94 million or $0.22 per diluted share. This is compared to income from continuing operations of $186 million or $0.45 per diluted share in the second quarter 2003. The effect of the shareholder lawsuit was a $222 million after-tax charge or $0.51 per diluted share. The effect of the early retirement of debt was a $24 million after-tax charge or $0.06 per diluted share. Non-cash pension expense (FAS/CAS Pension Adjustment) negatively affected the quarter by $0.12 per diluted share on a year-over-year basis.
Second quarter 2004 net loss was $108 million or $0.25 per diluted share compared to net income of $100 million or $0.24 per diluted share in 2003. The net loss for the second quarter of 2004 also includes a $14 million after-tax loss in discontinued operations or $0.03 per diluted share versus $86 million or $0.21 per diluted share in 2003.
Net sales for the second quarter 2004 were $4.9 billion, up 11 percent from $4.4 billion in the comparable period in 2003. Government and Defense sales for the quarter (after the elimination of intercompany sales) increased 11 percent to $4.2 billion from $3.8 billion in the comparable quarter.
Free cash flow from continuing operations for the second quarter was $818 million versus $649 million for the comparable period in 2003, an improvement of $169 million due primarily to reduced working capital levels. Free cash flow, including discontinued operations, for the second quarter 2004 was $793 million versus $533 million in 2003. Free cash flow is defined as operating cash flow less capital spending and internal use software spending.
During the second quarter of 2004, the Company retired debt with a par value of $877 million. Net debt was $5.5 billion at the end of the second quarter compared with $6.7 billion at the end of 2003. Net debt is defined as total debt minus cash and short term investments.
The Government and Defense businesses recorded second quarter bookings of $5.0 billion compared to bookings of $3.8 billion in the second quarter of 2003. Government and Defense backlog reached a record $29.5 billion, an increase of $4.4 billion over year end 2003.
Raytheon Aircraft Company's (RAC) second quarter bookings were $851 million compared to $423 million in 2003. During the quarter, NetJets Inc. placed an order with a value in excess of $300 million for 20 new Hawker 800XP mid-size business jets and 20 new Hawker 400XP light business jets.
"The second quarter represents another solid quarter for the Company," said William H. Swanson, Raytheon Chairman and CEO. "Our strong bookings and sales performance demonstrate our continued focus on our customers. The strong free cash flow highlights our consistent emphasis on execution. The settlement of the class action shareholder lawsuit puts a significant uncertainty behind us."
Change in outlook
The Company now expects 2004 earnings per share from continuing operations to be $0.79 - $0.89 to reflect the loss of $0.51 per diluted share from the settlement of the class action shareholder lawsuit. Excluding the impact of the settlement, the Company expects 2004 earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.30 - $1.40. The Company raised its full year guidance for bookings to $24.5 billion from $23.0 billion. A chart containing the Company's guidance is available on the Company's website.
Segment Results Integrated Defense Systems
Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) second quarter 2004 net sales were $870 million, up 24 percent compared to $701 million in the second quarter 2003, due primarily to continued growth in DD(X), the Navy's future destroyer program, and strong missile defense sales. IDS generated $104 million of second quarter 2004 operating income compared to $80 million in the 2003 comparable quarter.
During the quarter, IDS booked $363 million for Japan Patriot Product Improvement Program. IDS also booked $139 million contract for the production of the second Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Option 1 Radar, as well as $63 million for the first year of the five year Torpedo Omnibus Production contract, which is expected to exceed $500 million with all the options exercised.
Intelligence and Information Systems
Intelligence and Information Systems (IIS) second quarter 2004 net sales were $553 million, up 5 percent compared to $525 million in the second quarter 2003. IIS reported $51 million of operating income compared to $46 million in the comparable quarter a year ago.
During the quarter, IIS booked $225 million in classified contracts. Also in the quarter, the Department of Homeland Security awarded the US VISIT program to the Accenture team, which includes Raytheon. Task orders for this indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract are currently being developed jointly with the US VISIT program office.
Missile Systems (MS) second quarter 2004 net sales were $939 million, up 13 percent compared to $833 million in the second quarter 2003, driven by increased volume on Standard Missile-3 and Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW). MS generated $106 million of operating income compared to $104 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Operating income on higher sales in the quarter was partially offset by the wind-down of cost recovery for prior year restructuring actions.
During the quarter, MS booked $500 million for the definitization of the Standard Missile-3 contract awarded in the third quarter of 2003. Also during the quarter, MS booked a $269 million contract for the production of Evolved SeaSparrow Missiles (ESSM).
Network Centric Systems
Network Centric Systems (NCS) second quarter 2004 net sales were $780 million, up 9 percent compared to $716 million in the second quarter 2003. NCS recorded an operating profit of $66 million compared to $20 million in the comparable quarter a year ago. Last year's second quarter operating income included $40 million of charges due to performance issues on two older programs.
During the quarter, NCS booked $313 million on a classified program. NCS also booked an additional $30 million in options for the production of Army Thermal Weapon Sights (TWS), bringing the total for the year to $127 million.
Space and Airborne Systems
Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) second quarter 2004 net sales were $985 million, up 11 percent compared to $886 million in the second quarter 2003, due to higher classified and international programs, including F-15 Japan and Greek Advanced Self Protection Integrated Suite (ASPIS). SAS generated $142 million of operating income compared to $127 million in the comparable quarter a year ago.
During the quarter, SAS booked $360 million for Phase II System Development and Demonstration (SSD) for the U.S. Air Force's Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP). SAS also booked $105 million on a number of classified contracts.
Also in the quarter, the U.S. Navy awarded the Boeing team, which includes Raytheon, a contract to build the Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA). The MMA program is expected to be added to bookings later in the year.
Technical Services (TS) second quarter 2004 net sales were $496 million, up 7 percent from $465 million in the second quarter 2003. TS reported an operating profit of $36 million in the second quarter of 2004 compared to $34 million in the comparable quarter a year ago.
During the quarter, TS booked $5 million for a 10-year, multiple award, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract with a potential value of $378 million to support the Fleet Technical Support Center Atlantic (FTSCLANT). Additionally, TS was selected for an indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract with a potential value of $100 million by Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to provide engineering and product support services as a SeaPort Enhanced prime contractor in each of the U.S. Navy's seven geographic regions.
RAC's second quarter 2004 net sales were $570 million, up 6 percent from $540 million in the second quarter 2003. RAC recorded an operating profit of $23 million in the quarter compared to $12 million in the comparable quarter in 2003. The Company now expects RAC to be profitable for 2004.
RAC delivered 75 commercial aircraft in the second quarter of 2004, compared to 67 in the same quarter last year.
During the quarter, RAC received an order from NetJets Inc. for 20 new Hawker 800XP mid-size business jets and 20 new Hawker 400XP light business jets. These aircraft will be delivered in the 2005 - 2007 timeframe and have an aggregate value totaling more than $300 million.
Net sales for this segment in the second quarter 2004 were $153 million compared to $112 million in the second quarter 2003. The segment recorded an operating loss of $7 million in the second quarter 2004 compared to a loss of $5 million in the comparable quarter in 2003. The increase in sales this quarter is attributed to the consolidation of Flight Options in June 2003.
During the quarter, the Company recorded an after-tax loss from discontinued operations of $14 million, related to its former engineering and construction and Aircraft Integration Systems businesses.
Raytheon Company , with 2003 sales of $18.1 billion, is an industry leader in defense and government electronics, space, information technology, technical services, and business and special mission aircraft. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 78,000 people worldwide.

Attachment F Raytheon Company Non-GAAP Financial Measures Second Quarter 2004 (In millions except per share amounts)
This release contains non-GAAP financial measures (as defined by SEC Regulation G). While these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful in evaluating the Company, this information should be considered supplemental to and not as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
The following measures are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under SEC guidelines:
(i) Free cash flow.
(ii) Income from continuing operations excluding the effect of charges related to the settlement of the class action lawsuit and the early retirement of debt.
(iii) Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding the effect of charges related to the settlement of the class action lawsuit and the early retirement of debt.
The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results, to competitor's operating results, and to provide greater transparency to investors of supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. The Company uses certain of these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its operating performance and to determine management incentive compensation. The Company also uses non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain charges and credits because it believes that such items are not indicative of its core operating results, are not indicative of trends, and do not provide meaningful comparisons with other reporting periods.
